The Sunfish is a tier 10 animal. It is based on its real life counterpart, the Ocean Sunfish, Mola Mola.

Mechanics[ | ]

  • Oarfish evolve into sunfish.
    • 48,000 XP is required for an oarfish to evolve into a sunfish.
  • Sunfish do not evolve into any other animals, as they are one of the latest animals.
  • Sunfish drop meat upon death.

As a sunfish, friendly fire is turned off for all tier 1 animals: meaning you cannot touch them or interact with them in any way.

Abilities[ | ]

Passive Abilities[ | ]

  • You take no recoil knockback when attacking.
  • You are partially immune to poison (20%).

Active Abilities[ | ]

  • Boosting will give you +50% speed (150% total)
  • While boosting Sunfish is immune to grabs
  • Hitting an animal while boosting will lower its speed by 15%.

Suitable Biomes[ | ]

  • The suitable biomes for the sunfish are the ocean and the deeeep.
    • If a sunfish enters the ocean surface, it will lose oxygen.
    • If a sunfish enters the arctic, it will lose temperature.
    • If a sunfish enters the arctic surface, it will lose oxygen and temperature.
    • If a sunfish enters the swamp, it will lose salinity.
    • If a sunfish enters the swamp surface, it will lose oxygen and it will not regenerate salinity.

Diet[ | ]

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 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 Poop All except for lamprey and seagull Birdpoop 10 Affected by gravity. Automatically spawns below any seagull every 10 seconds.
Plankton All Food 25 Spawns in the ocean.
Ice All Ice 50 Spawns in the arctic and deeeep.
Volcano Food All except lamprey Lavabubble 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 675 Spawns in a horizontal line just below the height limit.
Meat All Meat 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.
Anglerfish Bait All Animals except for the Anglerfish who spawned it Food 0 Spawns infront of an Anglerfish when it is stationary (as its passive ability). No fixed look, resembles the last food the Anglerfish eats. It does nothing too, but the Anglerfish will deal twice as much damage (100x2, therefore 200) to the animal that ate it

Trivia[ | ]

  • As it has no recoil and is resistant to poison, Sunfish, along with the Softshell Turtle, and the Leatherback 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 resistance and lack of recoil, the title of "best LMJ killer" is heavily debatable thanks to the likes of Narwhal and Marlin thanks to their ability to bleed. Walrus is also a contender, as it causes bleed and has no recoil while boosting.
      • Oarfish is also a contender, as it's invulnerable to poison and it's decent base stats. However, it's limited pressure time can interfere with killing the Lion's Mane Jellyfish.
  • Before it's buff in the Snow and Below update, this animal was formerly an inside joke within the greater Deeeepio community:
    • It was sometimes called "funfish" or as an extension to "funfish", "funfish ofial", as a childish misspelling of "official".

      This image was formerly associated with the Sunfish before it's buff in the Snow and Below update.
