Critters are small, passive monsters found on planets. They have a tiny amount of health and can be killed easily by friendly or hostile weapons.

Critters cannot be captured using capture pods, although they could during the early release. Instead, a Relocator is required to capture them. Using this tool, the player can teleport up to three critters into the Relocator, then carry them safely and place them back into a world at a later time. After being released from the Relocator, critters will behave normally. Relocators can capture all capturable types of critters, including ground critters, wild fish, fish caught using a Fishing Rod, and flying critters.

Critters can be spawned with the admin command /spawnmonster [spawn name] [level]

  • For example: /spawnmonster ravencritter 6

Note: Rate refers to block probability when creating the world. So .01 roughly means 1 per 100 blocks that meet the other criteria.


  • The three eyed raven critter is likely a reference to the same creature in Game of Thrones.
  • The name "Groop" is likely a portmanteau of "grass" and "Gloop", the name of another critter.
  • The three cell critters found on the mission to defeat The Ruin spawn new cells with unique behavior when killed.
    • "Cell 1" spawns two cells identical to itself.
    • "Cell 2" spawns a fast-moving version of itself.
    • "Egg Cell" spawns a flying version of itself.
