Bulbop are a unique monster found in Giant Flower Biomes, as well as in poison Ancient Vaults.

Their behavior is the same as the Gleaps, hopping around the terrain and making quick leaps towards the player to deliver a body-blow attack, however the Bulbops are faster and jump considerably farther. In addition they are more prone to appearing in large packs than Gleaps.

This monster has a weakness (+50% damage taken) to Fire damage and a resistance (-50% damage taken) to Electric damage. Additionally, it cannot be inflicted with Electrified.

Rare Form

A rare elemental variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the poisoned status effect when touched. This variant's normal hops are shorter but quicker, and it's high-hop is significantly higher than it's standard variant's high-hop.

This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.

  • The name Bulbop may be a portmanteau of "bulb", which is the main underground body of certain plants, and "hop", the Bulbops' only method of moving.
  • They appear to be the younger form of the Mandraflora.
