The Sea Snail is a rare enemy that spawns in the Ocean on either end of the world, usually during the daytime. Even then the spawn rate is still the lowest of all enemies in the Ocean, one third that of Squids. It slowly crawls along the sea floor. When killed it drops Purple Mucos, which is used to create Purple Dye at a Dye Vat. They are immune to the Confused debuff.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Murex sea snail was used to create purple dye in the real world.
  • It closely resembles the Syrinx aruanus (or false trumpet snail), the largest gastropod still existing.
  • Although this enemy is very rare, it cannot be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.

History[edit | edit source]

  • 1.3.0.1: Can now drop its own respective banner.
  • 1.2: Introduced.
