Giant Jellyfish are large, aggressive versions of the smaller Jellyfish that are exclusive to the Downpour DLC. They are commonly found in large bodies of water, tending to stay immobile at the surface and moving their tendrils steadily towards a target's location. They are capable of emitting a shock strong enough to kill Slugcat and other medium sized creatures.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Giant Jellyfish are aquatic siphonophore megafauna, appearing more realistic than their smaller counterparts due to their body size allowing for more recognizable details. Their body hue can be salmon to gold pink to albino, with long tendrils attached to their disk-shaped body that is buoyant enough to be able to handle their body weight. Below the center are more stationary tendrils in the shape of rings. Attached under the main structure is a long tubular organ that sends powerful electric shocks to prey that comes in contact with it.
Tips[edit | edit source]
Combat[edit | edit source]
The tendrils of the Giant Jellyfish can only reach a certain distance. The disk part of their body can be stood on, allowing Slugcat to safely attack it with a Spear; however, due to its slight slope, Slugcat may slide off. Since bleedout is only activated on negative HP, Survivor needs at least 3 Spear hits to kill a Giant Jellyfish.
Stealth[edit | edit source]
Giant Jellyfish can only sense prey through vibrations in the water around them. The player can sneak past by swimming under their tendrils. An alternative method is running on the disk-shaped part of their body that is above the surface of the water.
Evasion[edit | edit source]
Giant Jellyfish can only attack underwater, so Slugcat can avoid being harmed by staying on land. An easy way to evade one is to dive downward to avoid the tendrils. This can be done by avoiding getting too close to the middle where the tendrils have an easier time ensnaring prey. The player could also grab a Jetfish to move past them or use them as bait to distract them.
Abilities & Behavior[edit | edit source]
Giant Jellyfish deliver a strong electrical shock with their ring-shaped tendrils or the bulb hanging below the head of the creature. When not in the presence of prey, they lay motionless and passive until a creature comes in range. Once a creature is in range, they attempt to entangle them, preventing the creature from evading capture while bringing them closer to the center where they shock them to death. If the Giant Jellyfish somehow manages to get in a situation where they get displaced from their current position they quickly move back to their previous spot.
Additionally, when near the Giant Jellyfish, they make a loud, deep, booming noise.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The noise the Giant Jellyfish makes is called a 'Moo' in Safari Mode controls.
- When killed, Giant Jellyfish burst into a pile of white blobs and 3 pieces of Slime Mold.
- The Slime Mold that the Giant Jellyfish drops when killed probably come from the orange glowing sack under the Giant Jellyfish.
- Removing a Giant jellyfish from their body of water results in them exploding and being killed in the process. This can be achieved with the devtool cursor, or by attempting to spawn one on land in Arena mode.
- Giant Jellyfish are classified as objects in the game's code, like Stowaways.
- The Giant Jellyfish may be based off of the Giant Phantom Jellyfish, with both sharing many similarities, being huge, orange jellyfish that primarily feed by dragging prey to their “mouthes” via their long appendages.
