This is a complete list of food that sunfish can eat.

Name Can be eaten by Image XP Description
Barb All except for the stonefish who spawned it Barb.png 0 Spawns behind a stonefish using their active ability. Deals damage upon eating it (7% of max life). Poisons anyone who eats it with a base DPS of 10% that lasts 5 seconds (except poison-immune animals). Despawns after 4 seconds.
Bird Shit All except for lamprey and seagull Bird Poop.png 10 Affected by gravity. Automatically spawns below any seagull every 10 seconds.
Plankton All Food.png 25 Spawns in the ocean.
Ice All Ice.png 50 Spawns in the arctic and deeeep.
Volcano Food All except lamprey Lavabubble.png 125 Affected by gravity, floats upwards. Spawns out of volcanoes, which can be hidden in and are located in the arctic and the deeeep. When eaten as an animal that is not suited to the arctic, it will replenish some of your temperature.
Flappy Duck Ray to tier 10 Flappyduck.png 675 Spawns in a horizontal line just below the height limit.
Meat All Meat.png 1000 Spawns where an animal dies (tier 2 to tier 10 animals only). The amount of meat that spawns depends on what animal it was.

Hiding Places[]

Sunfish cannot hide anywhere as they are a tier 10 animal.


  • As it has no recoil and is immune to poison, Sunfish, along with the Softshell Turtle, are often considered the best animals for killing Lion's Mane Jellyfish.
    • The Softshell Turtle is not immune to poison however, making Sunfish very much the best.
    • Even with its poison immunity and no recoil, the title of "best LMJ killer" is heavily debatable thanks to the likes of Narwhal and Marlin thanks to their ability to bleed.
    • Also, Oarfish is probably just as good.
    • There is a meme about this anima called "funfish ofial".
    • It is sometimes jokingly called "funfish" or "unfunfish".
    • Probably the only gamemode it's good in is 1v1.
