Looks to the Moon the first time Slugcat meets her.

Looks to the Moon, known as Big Sis Moon by her friends, is the Iterator found in Shoreline and Looks to the Moon (region). The Yellow Overseer from the beginning of the game initially leads Slugcat to Looks to the Moon's facility, where they find her sitting down and emitting sounds they cannot understand. Meeting and leaving her for the first time without touching her Neuron Flies earns the A New Friend achievement. Taking or eating the Neuron Flies above her head harms her and causes her to convulse. If the player does so upon their first time meeting, they earn the "Stolen Enlightenment" achievement. Eating all of them at any time kills her.

Appearance

Looks to the Moon is blue with black eyes, red wires protruding from her body, and a pink circle set on her forehead. She has gray antennae on either side of her head and several Neuron Flies floating above her. She sits on a pile of trash in a partially-flooded square chamber, and she is attached to the wall via a mechanical arm. Before her superstructure's collapse, she donned an orange cloak, similar to the one worn by Five Pebbles, and she wears the tattered remains of this cloak if it is returned to her.

About

Looks to the Moon's surrounding hardware is severely damaged and her processing power is reduced to the few Neuron Flies hovering above her. Much of her long-term memory is destroyed.

The Mark of Communication from an Iterator is needed to understand her.

Behavior

Looks to the Moon greets Slugcat upon meeting each cycle. This is dependent on the Slugcat and her current opinion of them. If the player has brought a Slugpup or creature with them, Looks to the Moon acknowledges them after her greeting.

Slugcat is able to bring Looks to the Moon most objects by throwing or placing them near her. She reads Pearls aloud, comments on objects, and thanks Slugcat for bringing Neuron Flies, which are her only source of processing power at this stage.

Slugcat can annoy Looks to the Moon through any of the following actions:

  • Attacking her
  • Moving or jumping around excessively
  • Grabbing or eating a Neuron Fly
  • Leaving during a conversation

If Looks to the Moon's opinion of Slugcat is sufficiently low, she is unwilling to speak to Slugcat and refuses to inspect objects, instead throwing them away.

The only way to increase reputation with Looks to the Moon is to bring her Neuron Flies.

Downpour

Spearmaster

SPOILER WARNING: Spearmaster
This section contains major plot details from Spearmaster. If you have not made significant progress or completed the game as Spearmaster, then read no further!


In Spearmaster's campaign, Looks to the Moon is still in a semi-functional state. Instead of being confined to Shoreline, her structure is spread between Waterfront Facility and Looks to the Moon (region), and her puppet can be found in the heart of Neural Terminus. The entrance shaft resembles Five Pebbles' entrance from General Systems Bus and the puppet physics are the same. There are no Neuron Flies in the chamber and eating the ones in her superstructure does not hurt her nor offers any unique dialogue.

Once Spearmaster falls to the floor of her chamber, Looks to the Moon attempts to communicate with her voice and written characters. She then projects a blueprint of the five initial Karma 1 Karma symbols connected by white threads, before lifting Spearmaster to give them the Mark of Communication and fill all their 🌕 food pips. The following series of events differs on whether Spearmaster has delivered their message or not, but she always falls down halfway through the interaction. This is due to acute system failure, and a multitude of red warning symbols flash in the chamber while she is unresponsive, until power is restored shortly after. This event can repeat after her initial dialogue is exhausted.


Any colored Pearl read by Looks to the Moon is labelled and kept in rows on the bottom right of her chamber, mirroring her own pearls on the bottom left. This behaviour is the same as when Artificer brings pearls to Five Pebbles to be read.


Looks to the Moon deflects any weapons directed at her save for Singularity Bombs, which she throws out of her chamber along with Spearmaster, identically to how Five Pebbles reacts. The only other instance where she throws them out is if Spearmaster dies. She never responds with violence.

Submerged Superstructure

Submerged Superstructure holds most of Looks to the Moon's facility after her collapse. Primarily underwater, it can be accessed by any Slugcat after Artificer in the timeline. The Cloak can be found here and returned to Looks to the Moon, who then wears it in the current and all subsequent campaigns. If the player does not bring the Cloak in any previous campaigns, Looks to the Moon appears in the Cloak, and with two extra Neuron Flies, in all campaigns after Monk irregardless.

Post- Rivulet

SPOILER WARNING: Rivulet
This section contains major plot details from Rivulet. If you have not made significant progress or completed the game as Rivulet, then read no further!


After finishing Rivulet's campaign and in Saint's playthrough, some power has been restored to Looks to the Moon's facility by the Rarefaction Cell. This results in gravity fluctuations in Looks to the Moon's chamber. The power also allows her umbilical to support her moving around as she did before her collapse. She can be seen floating around with her Neuron Flies as she works, projecting holograms and occasionally closing her eyes to activate her neurons, which produce popping sounds as they flash. If Slugcat lingers in her room, Looks to the Moon stops working to sit on the floor where she would normally be found in previous campaigns.

Trivia

  • Looks to the Moon cries out if hit by an attack.
    • Only direct hits (e.g. with a Spear or even a Spore Puff) count as attacks. The explosions from Explosives and ✔️DLC Fire Eggs do not count as attacks.
    • Although not classified as an attack, a ✔️DLC Singularity Bomb can destroy Neuron Flies caught in the well, causing events that trigger by loss of Neuron Flies.
      • Even if this does not destroy all her Neuron Flies, the attack has a chance to 'kill' Looks to the Moon.
  • Looks to the Moon is still connected to her chamber by her mechanical arm, but her severed umbilical leaves her without the power to move it.
  • Looks to the Moon is older than Five Pebbles. This may be why she refers to herself as "Big Sis Moon" in communications logs.
  • If Slugcat grabs her Neuron Flies twice, she tells them to leave and subsequently refuses to speak to them.
  • It is possible for Looks to the Moon to like Slugcat again if they ate one of her Neuron Flies, but they need to bring her enough to replace the ones they ate, provided at least one remains.
  • Looks to the Moon's chamber is flooded to the top every cycle when the rain comes.
  • Looks to the Moon reminds Slugcat when the rain comes.
  • The spot on her forehead is not consistent, being pink in game and red in cutscenes.
  • If the Slugcat returns to Looks to the Moon after taking a certain number of Neuron Flies, Looks to the Moon has different dialogue towards the Slugcat depending on how many they took.
  • Prior to 1.9, Looks to the Moon could read Pearls as long as she had at least one Neuron Fly.
  • Due to a bug present before version 1.9, bringing one or more Neuron Flies on Slugcat's first visit and then hibernating earned the player the Stolen Enlightenment achievement. This did not negatively affect Slugcat's relationship with her and was the only way to get the achievement without hurting her.
