Several slaughterfish

Slaughterfish are vicious, carnivorous fish that are found in large groups, usually in deeper waters. They cannot be killed or even fought, as they are an effect, rather than a true creature. They appear as dark shapes swimming under the surface, splash effects, and chomping sounds. If encountered, you should immediately turn back and swim away. Otherwise, you will certainly be killed. They can also be caught by fishing.


  • Slaughterfish are used to prevent you swimming to unavailable areas. You will die long before reaching any walls in the sea if you try to swim through.
