Aquapedes are large, aquatic Centipedes that are primarily encountered in the lowermost areas of Shoreline and in Submerged Superstructure. They are incapable of leaving the water, but their speed and aggression makes them adept at taking down prey.

Appearance

Aquapedes are large blue and black aquatic arthropods with protective shells and segmented bodies. Their shells are dappled with dark spots. They have four antennae on each end of the body, and do not have any legs. Aquapedes have long, tattered red frills similar to those of Centiwings, which shine when in motion. Aquapedes can emit a bright glow from their heads.

Combat

Aquapedes pose a significant threat in underwater areas, especially in tight spaces, where movement can be difficult. Fighting an Aquapede underwater is tricky, as objects like Spears and Rocks lose their speed quickly. This combined with the Aquapede's high agility makes engaging the creature typically fruitless. However, unlike other Centipedes, Aquapedes are stunned by Rocks when uninjured. Cherrybombs cause Aquapedes to drop held creatures and prevent them from grabbing for a short period.

Aquapedes can be killed with 2-7 Spear hits, depending on their size. Segments that have been de-shelled take extra damage. Like other arthropods, they can be killed with Spore Puffs.

Stealth

Sneaking around Aquapedes is an almost impossible endeavor, as they are located in areas where treading water is required. Their sharp underwater vision means Slugcat is almost always detected. Taking tunnels or paths out of their line of sight, whenever possible, can help avoid detection. Alternatively, creatures such as Jetfish can provide a distraction.

Evasion

While Aquapedes are quick underwater, they have trouble pursuing prey in a straight line. Making frequent turns or dives can help evade a pursuing Aquapede. Jetfish can be used to outpace Aquapedes. Jetfish can also be run into Aquapedes, stunning them temporarily.

Abilities & Behavior

Grabbing & Electrocution

Like other Centipedes, Aquapedes can grab on to creatures using their heads. If they manage to connect both ends to the creature, they deliver a lethal shock. Because Aquapedes are located in water, their shocks almost always do damage instead of relying on weight relation. Their underwater shocks deal 1 damage per frame. This shock has a radius that affects other creatures in the same body of water. However, because an Aquapede's shock radius would be too large, it is clamped to a smaller radius of 80 pixels, or 4 tiles. Aquapedes can deliver shocks in rapid succession to creatures with more health.

Swimming

Aquapedes possess the ability to swim and dive underwater to pursue prey. Their swimming speed greatly outpaces most Slugcats. Aquapedes wiggle when swimming, similarly to Centiwings in flight. Their proficiency underwater can be impeded by making sharp turns, as it can disturb the flow of the Aquapede, allowing for evasion.

Senses

Like other Centipedes, Aquapedes have strongly movement-based vision. They are only able to see out of one head at a time and alternate between heads every frame. Aquapedes have a large visual radius at 1900 pixels maximum, or 95 tiles. Their vision is much stronger underwater, and as a result, they can detect any creature within the same pool of water as them.

Aquapedes are capable of hearing and share the same hearing stats as Centipedes: 1.5 when idle and 0 when moving.

Variants & Attributes

Aquapedes can be 16 or 17 segments long, and their shell colors range from cyan to blue. Their shell colors can be affected by a room's darkness.

Trivia

  • Aquapedes sink after they die, making consuming them quite difficult.
  • Aquapedes are coded to have a size range of 0.9-1.8, but because the maximum size for Centipedes is 1, they have a 1-segment range form 0.9-1, resulting in 16 and 17 segments respectively.
  • Since underwater shocks deal damage, Aquapedes are capable of killing Leviathans if enough shocks are delivered.
  • Aquapedes cannot move from place to place on land, but they are still able to grab and electrocute creatures that make contact with their heads.
  • Aquapedes are capable of drowning, should they stay fully submerged in water for over 6 minutes.
