Jetfish are neutral, aquatic Creatures found in and around Shoreline Safari Icon.png Shoreline that can be used as a fast mode of transportation through large bodies of water.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Jetfish have medium-sized black bodies and two neon purple eyes. Framing their bodies are shorter pectoral fins, longer tail fins with joints at the midpoints and a vent which expels water, around which the tail fins are draped. Their eyes are ring-like in water, but constrict and take on a much smaller, circular shape when on land. Additionally, their heads may sometimes sport whiskers.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Utility[edit | edit source]

Jetfish are by far the quickest way to move through water, and even grant immunity to leeches, both of which are incredibly useful properties for moving through Shoreline. However, they must be grabbed onto first in order to be used, which can prove challenging due to their deft movement and (by default) harassing behaviour towards Slugcat head.png Slugcat. Due to this, care must be taken to approach them, especially when in groups. Blue Fruit, when dropped into the surface of the water, lures them up, granting an opportunity to grab on.

Abilities & Behavior[edit | edit source]

Diet[edit | edit source]

Despite never appearing in the same Regions naturally, Jetfish can also eat Squidcada icon.png Squidcadas. These may all be used to lure Jetfish to a desired location.

Harassment[edit | edit source]

Jetfish attempt to harass the player at neutral or lower reputation. They ram into Slugcat, temporarily stunning and knocking anything held (including other Jetfish) out of their hands. This behavior is much more dangerous in packs, as they can easily stun-lock the Slugcat, resulting in them drowning. There is a Remix toggle to keep Jetfish from knocking items out of the player's hands, but does not disable the harassing behavior.

Swimming[edit | edit source]

Temporarily hovering mid-air due to the water jet

When grabbed, Jetfish provide a substantial boost to mobility in water. They are easily controlled and quite responsive, allowing for safe passage through flooded tunnels that are impassable alone. They are also able to outrun Leviathan icon.png Leviathans, making traversing long stretches of water in Shoreline considerably less risky. The jet of liquid they expel creates a large amount of momentum, which can be used to propel through the air. As a drawback, Jetfish are very cumbersome when held on land, and too heavy to be carried up poles by Monk head.png Monk and Survivor head.png Survivor. Other items cannot be held while riding one, unless glitches are used.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Variants & Attributes[edit | edit source]

Jetfish's pectoral fins can take on a variety of shapes whereas their tail fins vary only in length, thickness and joint angle. The same is true for the 0-3 sets of whiskers found at the fronts of their bodies, which may also protrude in different directions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Jetfish are immune to Leeches and extend this immunity to Slugcat when riding one.
  • Jetfish deal a small amount of damage when ramming, meaning it is possible for them to accidentally kill each other when doing so.
  • The Hunter head.png Hunter is strong enough to perform a slide pounce while holding a Jetfish. Doing so causes them to travel approximately two and a half times farther compared to a normal slide pounce. This property can be used to easily obtain the Jellyfish icon.png Jellyfish Arena unlock.
  • All Jetfish in Subterranean Safari Icon.png Subterranean and DLC icon.png Pipeyard Safari Icon.png Pipeyard are albino.
  • Bubble Fruit and Blue Fruit reflect thrown Spear icon.png Spears. They retain this trait when grabbed by a Jetfish, allowing one to be used as a makeshift shield.
  • A dead Jetfish retains the eye shape it had before death, both in water and on land.
