The King of the Merms is a Mob exclusive to the Don't Starve Together character Wurt. It was released on October 24, 2019.[1]

The King of the Merms appears after feeding a Merm on the Royal Tapestry. He has 1000 Health and regenerates 2 health per second. He cannot attack or move but he spawns up to 4 Loyal Merm Guards when attacked, they disappear when the attacker is killed or out of range. When killed they regenerate after 1 day.

He has 200 Hunger and starves in four days. When his hunger is at zero his health depletes in 2 days.

As long as the King of the Merms is alive, all Merms receive a stat boost. Wurt players change stats to 250 Health Meter, 250 Hunger Meter and 200 Sanity Meter corresponding of a bonus of +100 Health, +50 Hunger and +50 Sanity. Normal Merms gain +60 health and +10 damage. Loyal Merm Guards gain +460 Health and +30 damage.

When the King of the Merms is alive Merms and Loyal Merm Guards are neutral to all creatures and players.

Wurt or a player wearing a Clever Disguise can offer Freshwater Fish, Live Eel or Ocean Fishes to the King of the Merms in exchange for various resources. The table below lists the possible gifts.
