Rain World - Large Creatures Guide

This is a guide to the larger creatures of Rain World. Obvious spoilers.

Vultures



Disadvantages

Vultures are hard to kill, and can easily snatch a slugcat that has nowhere to hide. And once they have you in their jaws, there is a very slim chance of them letting go. They appear in in Industrial Complex, Garbage Wastes, Shoreline, Chimney Canopy, Sky Islands, and Farm Arrays, so they are very common!

Advantages

Luckily, vultures only appear where the sky is exposed, so it can be easy to avoid them. Vultures also can't travel through pipes or small spaces, though their long neck can reach into a tunnel the pluck any creature inside of it out. Vultures also wear a mask that can be knocked off with a spear that hits near the mask, usually above it. The mask can scare away all lizards except green and black lizards. I also for killing the vulture, I recommend getting a explosive spear and a normal spear, throw the explosive spear at the vulture's body, once it hits and explodes, hit the vulture as much as you can with the normal spear.

Advice

Try to avoid vultures by hiding in small spaces or staying in areas that aren't exposed to the sky.

Brother Long Legs



Disadvantages

These are creatures that made me die a lot. They have serveral tentacles that can grab onto your slugcat. The only way you can have them let go is by throwing a rock at the tentacle that is holding onto you but it will most likely try to grab you again. Hard to kill, which I found out you can do by hitting the core a lot, but the core is the part that eats you. They can also use tunnels to travel and are found in the lowest levels of Garbage Wastes.

Advantages

Pretty horrible... One advantage is that they aren't as bad as the Daddy Long Legs, which is like the bigger more horrible kind. Brother Long legs are blind so they can only find you if you make noise or they feel you with their tentecles. Spearing one of their tentecles will disable it and make it so that the tentecle can't grab anything.

Advice

You don't have to go to the lowest levels of Garbage Wastes at all, so try doing that to avoid Brother Long Legs, for they don't come out of the room they spawn in often.

Leviathan



Disadvantages

The leviathan is unkillable and will happily eat any slugcat who goes into the water while it's there. The leviathan can and will prove to be a annoying obstacle if you need to cross a wide streach of water. The leviathan only appears in the waters of the Shoreline.

Advantages

The leviathan is also built completely for water, so getting onto land will always stop the leviathan in its tracks. And you'll most likely spot the leviathan emerging from the deep waters, due to its huge size.

Advice

Try to flee to land if your caught in the water with a leviathan. A stragety I have is to go underwater, press the jump button, go back to the surface and than do everything else again. Also works for if your being chased by anything and your in deep water.

Miros Bird / Scissorbird



Disadvantages

Miros birds are very fast, almost impossible to run away from them. You can kill them, but they spawn in groups, which you'll have to deal with if you decide to attack. They have long necks like the vultute, so they to can pluck your slugcat out of tunnels. I've personally only seen them in Memory Crypts, but I've heard that they also spawn in Subterranean.

Advantages

They are also large like the vultures so they won't be able to get you in tunnels, but make sure the tunnel is deep enough so that their long necks can't reach inside it and pluck your slugcat out. The miros birds are also blinded by blue glowing plants that you might see growing in Memory Crypts, and possibly Subterranean. You'll know if the miros birds are coming by the sound of them running, which you'll know when you hear it. Also you can climb poles to avoid them but this isn't the best idea.

Advice

When you hear them running, hide in the closest tunnel. If you can't see any tunnels close by then try a very tall pole. Remember to stand on the top of the pole!

Daddy Long Legs



Disadvantages

Daddy Long Legs. Pretty much brother long legs but are bigger, have more tentacles, and are harder to kill than the brother long legs. There isn't much to say about these, for they are a lot like brother long legs. You can also see smaller daddy long legs that are stuck to the walls in Unfortunate Developement, and you can see some when going into Unfortunate Developement. Daddy Long Legs also appear in The Leg and The Underhang.

Advantages

I really don't know... they're blind like the brother long legs but seem lazier, sending off a long tentecle to feel around where they heard the sound. The ones I found in Unfortunate Developement seem to be the most laziest, simply sitting around with their tentacles streched out to see if anything edible might fly into them. Also spearing one of their tentecles will disable it so that it'll be harmless, like the brother long legs.

Advice

Try not to touch their tentecles, make noise, or really do anything that involves daddy long legs, other than running away from them.

Reindeer/ Rabbit Walker



Advantages

The only passive creature in this guide. Reindeer spawn in Farm Arrays and will let the slugcat hold onto its antlers. The reindeer also help crossing patches of red worm grass, for they can't get pulled down. You can call in a reindeer by throwing these yellow sacks, that I call puffballs. To get on the reindeer's antlers easily, you need to place down another puffball, which the reindeer will eat and lower its antlers for the slugcat to grab.

Disadvantages

The wait for a reindeer to come and let you ride across the worm grass can be very long, and when you do ride on its antlers, predators like vultures can always swoop down for your poor, powerless slugcat. You can also accidentally fall off the reindeer's antlers and into the worm grass. The reindeer, sadly, won't immediatly kneel down for you to grab onto its antlers again for it to pull you out. Oh and sometimes they'll squish your poor slugcat.

Advice

You'll need reindeer to get across worm grass. Don't blame them for their disadvantages, its mostly the slugcat who's getting squashed and/or eaten. Also I find riding on the reindeer's antlers rather calming.
