The Squid is an enemy that spawns rarely in the Ocean. When underwater, it attacks by propelling itself towards the player in short bursts. If led out of the water, it will be unable to move or pursue the player in any way. It always drops Black Ink, which is used solely to craft Black Dye.
On the Desktop version, it is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.
- The Bestiary entry for the Squid: "A betentacled marine creature which discharges a thick, black ink when threatened. The ink is collected for aesthetic purposes."
