A miraculous spring
Clear as children's song
Deep runs its stream
Elegant, but strong
A lullaby is sung
Soft sounds of seduction
Its dulcet tones inducing sleep
And serpentine destruction

 

Somnacanth Details & Locations

A formidable aquatic serpent that crests on moonlit nights--likely why is has often been mistaken for a mermaid. It expels an intoxicating sleep powder from its neck gills and tail, knocking out prey before it can resist. Some Somnacanth sightings tell of this species making use of unusual shells, so exercise caution if you catch one swimming towards you with a shell in its claws.

  • Breaking its head will result in it sometimes failing to spew its sleep breath, making it a huge opening for damage.
  • Wiredashing over the sleep breath is extremely effective.
  • Hunting Information: While in the water, it can move about as it pleases, but it doesn't fare so well on land, so draw it out to shore for an easy hunt. If you're caught in a cloud of its sleep powder, it's lights out, use a Wirebug to leap away from it and position for a counterattack.

Somnacanth Notes & Trivia

  • Somnacanth's design is somewhat inspired by otters, as can be seen by the way that it swims around on its back and clutches sea shells in its claws. Not only that, but some of its attacks involve breaking open sea shells on its hard stomach, similar to the way otters break open sea shells.
