"Here is a strange energy"

Karma Flowers, also known as Wheel Flowers, are rare, yellow objects which can be found growing at specific locations throughout most of the game's regions. They can be eaten to prevent Karma loss.


Karma reinforcement

When eaten, Karma Flowers protect the player's current karma level, reinforcing it with an additional outer circle. This reinforcement is consumed upon the Slugcat's death, stopping the current karma level from decreasing. Attempting to starve also consumes the reinforcement, however without any positive effects.

Additionally, dying with the reinforcement spawns a new Karma Flower at the location of the player's death, which is marked on the map with a special yellow symbol. Dying or hibernating before consuming this Karma Flower causes it to disappear.
Karma Flowers are automatically consumed when slept with in Shelters and their reinforcement cannot be stacked.


Monk spawns a Karma Flower on every death, regardless of whether they had Karma protection the cycle before.


Hunter's permadeath Karma Flower, a natural Karma Flower, and a death Karma Flower.

Karma Flowers do not spawn for Hunter. Upon Hunter's permadeath, a Karma Flower can be permanently found at the spot of their death when playing another Slugcat on the same save file. Unlike other Karma Flowers, which respawn after 5 to 7 cycles, Hunter's Karma Flower respawns every cycle, as long as the Slugcat hibernates inside of the region where it's located.

If Hunter runs out of cycles and dies in a different spot, the old Karma Flower gets overwritten, now spawning at the most recent permadeath location.
