Adult Noodleflies, frequently nicknamed Noots or Noodles, are neutral creatures often seen flying around with multiple Infant Noodleflies hanging onto them.


Adult Noodleflies have long, flexible bodies, 4 slim wings, 2 oval eyes, short legs, and a proboscis-like mouth. In their mouth is a retractable needle which they extend when attacking. The needle is initially white at the tip and a pale red near the mouth and turns black shortly after being exposed to the air. Their bodies are mostly monochrome, featuring a lighter stripe of color in the middle and slight gradients on the legs. Their wings are usually shades of white or gray, though they may have a vibrantly-colored gradient close to the body.



Getting stuck in the floor and killed

Adult Noodleflies are frail and can be killed in a single Spear hit. However, they are fierce and agile, making up for their low health with high mobility, which makes it difficult to hit them from a distance. They utilize two attacks in combat: the poke, a quick, close-range, temporarily-stunning jab, and the stab, a lethal, long-range lunge with a well-telegraphed wind-up. If dodged, the stab can lodge the Noodlefly into a wall or floor, trapping them for around 3-4 seconds and leaving them vulnerable to attack. Making contact with the tip of the needle may stun Slugcat and cause them to drop held objects.


Hiding in pipes or tunnels is an effective evasion strategy, as Adult Noodleflies are unable to attack while in one. They may still try to attack from outside one, however. Alternatively, the player may attempt to get very close (practically touching them), as doing so makes the Noodlefly unable to attack, and may even cause them to fully retract the needle for a short amount of time.

Abilities & Behavior

Adult Noodleflies fly across the region with their offspring. They spend most of their time in the air but may also crawl through pipes and tunnels. Adults mainly fly about idly, watching other creatures at a distance.


Dodging a thrown Spear

Adult Noodleflies can swiftly dodge thrown objects such as Spears and Rocks. This has a very short cooldown, rendering them near impossible to hit in flight.


If an Adult Noodlefly perceives another creature as a threat to them or their offspring, they become aggressive and begin hunting down the offending creature. Holding a Noodlefly Egg aggravates Adult Noodleflies until the Noodlefly Egg is dropped.

Within the game's code, a value called tempLike determines a creature's relationship with an Adult Noodlefly. This number slowly increases over time, but certain actions lower it. If it falls below -0.25, the Adult Noodlefly becomes hostile until the value rises back above this threshold. Being the closest to an injured Infant Noodlefly instantly sets this value to -1, the lowest possible, meaning an Adult Noodlefly can often stay aggravated for an entire cycle if they were angered this way. Attempting to throw weapons at a Noodlefly or hitting them with a Rock also decreases this value. In practice, this means that missing 50 throws with Rocks, 12 throws with a Spear, or hitting one 16 times with a Rock turns them hostile for a short period of time.

Adult Noodleflies are always hostile toward each other.

Variants & Attributes

Adult Noodleflies have a large color range, sporting various shades of red, pink, purple, white, black, and even blue or cyan. The ends of their wings and legs are often differently colored but seem to use the same palette as the body. Their eyes are most often gray or white, but may very rarely be different colors.

* Notes:

  • Every color is represented proportionately to its likeliness.
  • Only the main body color is shown here; various highlights, gradients, and differently colored body parts may be added to it.
  • These colors are subject to change slightly depending on the palette of the room they are seen in. The ones shown here correspond to the default Outskirts palette.


  • Noodleflies were added in the 1.5 update.
  • If an Adult Noodlefly is killed while stuck in a surface, they stay that way for a few seconds before falling off.
  • It is possible for two Adult Noodleflies to stab each other and die simultaneously.
  • When an Infant Noodlefly cries out, the nearest Adult Noodlefly attacks the closest creature to the offspring, as opposed to the one that injured them. This makes spearing an infant from afar or grabbing and tossing it a niche way of dealing with predators and eating the infant without alerting the parent.
    • An Adult Noodlefly can also aggro onto an Overseer if it happens to be the closest. However, their stab is incapable of killing it, effectively locking them into chasing it around for the whole cycle.
  • If a Noodlefly parent is killed in a hibernation chamber and the children are still alive when hibernating, on the following cycle, the children spawn in the chamber whether they were there before or not.
    • If the previous glitch is performed and the babies are killed or eaten, a new Noodlefly spawns and starts hunting the player.
  • When used against other creatures, the stab deals a little more damage than a Spear thrown by the Survivor (1.22), and the poke deals the equivalent of 5 Rocks (0.05).
  • If a Noodlefly has more than one target, it targets the closest one.
    • If the two targets are of similar distance away, it switches between them, often causing it to miss.
  • Adult Noodleflies are incapable of hurting Infant Noodleflies. This can be seen by trying to stab an Infant Noodlefly while playing as an Adult Noodlefly in ✔️DLC Safari Mode.
  • An Adult Noodlefly’s stab cannot open Popcorn Plants.
