Portraits of Chicory is the third chapter of Chicory: A Colorful Tale. It starts after defeating the boss at the end of Chapter 2.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Pizza wakes up outside the corrupted tree in the Wielder Temple. More corrupted trees have since sprouted, blocking the way they came in. Luckily, Pizza has gained the ability to swim through their paint to go through small cracks, and uses this to find another exit to the temple. Pizza decides to go talk to Chicory again about what’s going on.

They find Chicory outside the Wielder Tower, trying to paint something. She says that nothing is coming out the way she’d like, and Pizza sheepishly asks her to paint them with the Brush. Chicory obliges, and they make conversation while she does. They both express their insecurities, Pizza looking up to Chicory, and Chicory thinking she shouldn’t be looked up to. When Chicory finishes, she asks that Pizza paint her as well.

Pizza and Chicory trade portraits, but notice that while they were painting, multiple black trees had sprouted around the Wielder Tower, reminding them that Pizza has work to do. Chicory says the nearest corruption is in Gulp Swamp, and Pizza goes on their way. At the entrance to Gulp Swamp, they encounter Blackberry. Blackberry heard that Chicory had officially given the Brush to Pizza, and talks poorly of her as a result. Pizza defends Chicory from her. Moving on through Gulp Swamp, Pizza finds the corrupted tree and enters it. The corrupted entity within morphs into the form of Chicory. The apparition insults Pizza's abilities as a wielder and attacks them.

Boss[edit | edit source]

Though the boss does not have an official name, it is often referred to as Boss 3 or by its backing track Erase You.
