Thin wings hide a highly volatile belly. Will give its own life to protect its territory.

An angry creature with no regard for its own life. A creature without fear... can it truly be called 'prey'?


Behaviour and Tactics

It hangs from a ceiling, emitting a high-pitched squeak. Listen carefully for this sound as it is usually found in dark or secluded places, where spotting it usually means that it's too late to avoid contact with it.

Upon seeing The Knight, it emits a louder shriek, exposes its glowing belly, then swoops down on the Knight, exploding on contact and dealing two masks of damage.

Its homing is limited to a wide arc about 90 degrees below it, after which it will continue in an arc until making contact with the environment or the player. Dodge away when it dives in and let it explode against the surface it impacts. The blast also instantly kills any enemy in its area of effect.

It is possible to kill it before it dives as it dies in one hit even with the un-upgraded Nail; however, timing this is difficult. Spells, Nail Arts, and Grubberfly's Elegy can be used to dispose of it from a distance. Killing this enemy is no longer needed after the Lifeblood update as if it is activated by the player and kills itself it still will count within the Hunter's Journal.
