Dead Rainbow Jellyfish is a Fish Food Item introduced in the Shipwrecked DLC. It can be obtained by murdering Rainbow Jellyfish. It cannot be used as an ingredient in a Crock Pot, but can be dried on a Drying Rack to obtain Dried Jellyfish. Eating a Dead Rainbow Jellyfish will make the character glow and give off colored light similar to that of a Rainbow Jellyfish. This glowing effect becomes visibly weaker as time goes on, and only lasts around 2 minutes.

Cooked Rainbow Jellyfish is a Fish Food Item made by cooking Dead Rainbow Jellyfish on a Campfire, Fire Pit, Star, Chiminea, or Obsidian Fire Pit. It cannot be used as an ingredient in a Crock Pot. Unlike its raw counterpart, eating Cooked Rainbow Jellyfish will not make the player glow.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • During mid Dry Season, one can eat Dead Rainbow Jellyfish to stay safe from Charlie during the whole night, as nights are shorter during that Season.
  • Some Mobs, such as Wildbores and Spiders, will also glow after eating a Dead Rainbow Jellyfish.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Rainbow Jellyfish were added to the Shipwrecked DLC more than a year after its official completion in the Home Sea Home update, after being tested in a beta branch for several months.
