Fennix is a unique monster found in decayed, desert, magma, savannah, and volcanic biomes. It can also be found in underground layers 3b, 3d and 5d, and in fire Ancient Vaults.

When provoked it unleashes a fiery breath attack that deals 10 base fire damage and applies a burning debuff.

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

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 slowing Frost status effect when touched. This variant has a leap attack with a further range and more power behind it. It also breathes frost clouds instead of fire in a spread, instead of the standard variant's flamethrower attack. This attack will trigger at a further distance than the standard variant's flamer.

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

  • The name Fennix may be a portmanteau of "fennec", which is a desert-inhabiting species of fox, and “phoenix”, a mythical fiery bird. The Fenerox species also appears to be named after fennec foxes.
