A Flup is a hostile Mob found in the Shipwrecked DLC. It lives in the Tidal Marsh Biome. Flup can be seen as the Shipwrecked counterpart of the Tentacles. A Flup will hide in the mud and wait for a creature or the player to come along before jumping out and striking. If one looks closely, they can see the eye of a Flup sticking out from the ground, or bubbles indicating their presence. Flups will attack by lashing their tongue out.

Flups can easily catch unsuspecting new players off guard and likely kill them if they are not prepared for a random attack.

Below is the number of hits it takes with each weapon to kill a Flup when playing with characters with a default damage modifier. The Weather Pain is not included due to the random nature of its projectile.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Flups may be based on real-life mudskippers, amphibious fish that live in tropical regions and can also live on land. Their appearance also resembles anglerfish, fish that have a protrusion on their head. Their third eye appears to be quite similar to a Periscope, which is commonly used on submarines to search for threats while submerged.
  • The concept of the Flup is actually older than Maxwell's current design, as seen in a concept art drawing.

Mosquito.png Bugs[]

  • Flups have invisible spawners in Tidal Marshes they're supposed to spawn from every 2 to 4 days, but these spawners don't work. They check for spots around them that are both in the water but also on Tidal Marsh Turf, so the check always fails since it isn't possible.
