The Naedocyte Hatchling (also known as Jellies by the Dwarves) is a hostile creature found on Hoxxes IV. It is a small, floating, spherical creature with an appearance akin to that of the Naedocyte Shocker, differing by being primarily purple in color and possessing numerous spikes on its four appendages. It does not have any liquid drizzling from its underside.

Naedocyte Hatchlings will only spawn from Naedocyte Roe, which in turn can only spawn from Naedocyte Breeders.

The presence of Hatchlings will indicate that a Breeder is nearby, and the wispy trails they leave behind linger for a second after their death, which can reveal their flight path. Until the Breeder is killed, there is no limit to the amount of Hatchlings it can spawn.


Hatchlings are the product of a hatched Roe. When it bursts, the Roe spawns five Hatchlings at once which will seek and destroy any threats to the Breeder.

Naedocyte Hatchlings are functionally identical to their Shocker counterparts, being able to levitate through the air towards any dwarves. While not a major threat by themselves, they can prove to be dangerous with their immense numbers, which will continue to multiply so long as their Breeder is still alive.

Health and Armor

The Naedocyte Hatchling has little health and bears no armor, making it a fragile but very numerous enemy.

  • While hatchlings are implied to be infant versions of Naedocyte Shockers, they have several differences from the latter, most notably the short spikes on all four of their "limbs".
