The Spikey Trap is an immobile, aggressive fauna species.

Appearance

The Spikey Trap consists of a huge cross-shaped base on the ground having a cross-shaped maw at its center, in which features a smaller real mouth, filled with sharp, rectangular teeth.

For the blue variant of the Spikey Trap, which is found exclusively in the Deep Twisty Bridges, the center of the base is dull blue in color, and covered with four, spiky, greyish carapace-like structures. From each corner of its mouth protrudes a total of four blue, red-tipped feelers extending upwards. At the end of each feeler sports a dark orange-colored suction pad that emits a bioluminescent glow.

The brown variant of the Spikey Trap is identical in shape compared to the ones found in the Deep Twisty Bridges. However, the pigmentation of its feelers are grey and fade to brown, and each suction pad is orange-yellow in hue. The main body of this variant is a drab, gray color, while the carapace-like structures at the ends of the body, as well as its jaws, are gold laced with orange stripes.

Behavior

At rest, the Spikey Trap sits idly with its tentacles waving in the water, croaking quietly. When a suitably sized creature comes within a certain distance, the Spikey Trap is capable of lashing out its long tentacles to catch the target before drawing them into the center to be consumed.

If the player swims within range of the Spikey Trap, they will be grabbed by one of its tentacles. While being held by a tentacle, the player will be slowly drawn towards the creature and take constant damage. The tool or hand can be used to hit the tentacle with RMB and swim freely. If the player is successfully pulled into the creature's mouth, it will consume the player, dealing 60 damage.
