The Toxic Minnow is an enemy that spawns in the 1st and 2nd layers of the Abyss. It swims in one direction and turns around when it hits a wall, dealing contact damage if the player touches it. It never moves to attack the player or fires projectiles of any kind, even if it is approached or hit.

Once killed, it bursts into roughly 10 toxic green skull clouds, which deals damage and inflicts the Poisoned debuff onto anything they touch, including enemies. These clouds linger for 10 seconds before vanishing.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Toxic Minnow: "These abnormally large minnows have evolved to use nutrients from plants they consume to create toxins inside their body, which is then released after they die. They have next to no predators due to this, and contribute nearly nothing to their environment."
