The Oarfish is a tier 9 animal.


  • Dragonfish evolve into oarfish.
    • 42,000 XP is required for a dragonfish to evolve into an oarfish.
  • Oarfish evolve into manta ray and sunfish (player-determined).
    • 48,000 XP is required for an oarfish to evolve into any of those animals.
  • Oarfish drop meat upon death.
  • As an oarfish, friendly fire is turned off for other oarfish and all tier 1 to tier 5 animals excluding jellyfish: meaning you cannot damage them nor be damaged by them.

Suitable Biomes[]

  • The suitable biome for the oarfish is the deeeep.
  • If an oarfish enters the ocean, it will lose pressure, however, its pressure time is long enough for this not to matter.
    • If an oarfish enters the ocean surface, it will lose oxygen and pressure.
    • If an oarfish enters the arctic, it will lose pressure.
    • If an oarfish enters the arctic surface, it will lose oxygen and pressure.
    • If an oarfish enters the swamp, it will lose pressure and salinity.
    • If an oarfish enters the swamp surface, it will lose oxygen, pressure, and it will not regenerate salinity.
