Mother Long Legs, also known as Terror Long Legs and Grandpa Long Legs, are creatures exclusive to ✔️DLCDownpour. They are a larger version of the Daddy Long Legs and are the biggest mobile Rot cyst. They can be found in certain areas of The Rot, as well as the past incarnation of Garbage Wastes.


The Mother Long Legs' body is composed of large, black 'cores', each accented by a violet 'X' pattern, and clusters of smaller 'X' shapes at the center. They have numerous violet-tipped tentacles of varying lengths. The number of 'cores' and tentacles may vary. They have the largest quantity of tentacles in comparison to other rot variants.



Unlike other Rot cysts, Mother Long Legs do not have a weakness to explosives. Paired with their incredibly high health of 1600, this means that regular weapons have nearly no effect towards them. Their tentacles have 2.2 health each and regenerate health at a rate of 4.8% per second, 4 times faster than a Daddy Long Legs.

The only practical way to kill a Mother Long Legs is to use a Singularity Bomb, though due to the rarity of this item, it is likely that the player may not have one available should an encounter with a Mother Long Legs occur. Short of this, killing one in the span of a normal cycle is impossible.


Like the other Rot-based enemies, Mother Long Legs are blind. However, they have an acute sense of hearing that allows for them to pursue the Slugcat and other prey. Distracting one with thrown Rocks can lure them away. Alternatively, employing the distraction of other creatures can alter the focus of a Mother Long Legs, allowing escape.


Despite their large size and long tentacles, fleeing from a Mother Long Legs is easier than with other mobile Rot cysts, as they are comparatively much slower. Avoiding being grabbed is a high priority, as the Mother Long Legs' tentacles rarely release anything caught in their grasp, even if hit with thrown Spears or Rocks.

Abilities & Behavior

Mother Long Legs exhibits the same hearing ability as the Daddy Long Legs, actively searching for prey to consume either by inserting their tentacles into small crevices like pipes and tunnels to grasp hiding prey or approaching the source of loud noises. When a creature manages to evade its tendrils, the Mother Long Legs lingers for a while in the same position where the creature escaped, attempting to fit into and use its lengthy tentacles to grab and pull it out.

  • They devolved in the Garbage Wastes, becoming Daddy Long Legs and eventually Brother Long Legs over time. This implies that the Rot is likely incapable of surviving—or at least spreading and evolving—outside of Five Pebbles.
  • Mother Long Legs are able to consume other mobile Rot cysts should they come in contact with each other, including Daddy Long Legs.
    • Mother Long Legs may attempt to eat each other but are unable to.
