A Sea Hound is a hostile Mob found in the Shipwrecked DLC. They may be encountered alone at sea, or attack the player in large packs while they are sailing.

Meats dropped into the water have a chance to spawn Sea Hounds in any part of the ocean. The probability of this happening is based on the hunger value of the item dropped into the sea. Dropping large stacks of meat items into the water can easily cause the player to be overwhelmed by multiple Sea Hounds. The meat does not have to be dropped by the player themselves. Monster Meat, Roe and Shark Fins will not trigger a Sea Hound attack.

Because they lose interest in the player easily, Sea Hounds may get distributed in the ocean and later be re-encountered.

Spear Fighting Strategy Edit

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

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • Sea Hounds were once used to replace Hounds in their periodic attacks if the player was at sea. This feature was removed in the Home Sea Home update, adding Crocodogs which can traverse both land and water. While Hounds can no longer be encountered in the DLC at all (except via the Slot Machine), Sea Hounds were accidentally removed from the game, but were later added back in their current functionality.
  • A Cargo Boat may randomly be found at sea containing some loot, but jumping on the boat will trigger a Sea Hound attack.
  • According to Wickerbottom, the scientific name for Sea Hounds is Houndus Selachii. "Houndus" is a play on the word "Hound", while Selachii is the order of sharks. Interestingly enough, sharks in real life were historically called "sea dogs" by sailors.
