Pufferfish (also known as "Fugu") are one of the smallest fish in game. They appear from Harry's level 'Pesky Puffers'. They are yellow and white. They appear 7 times in the game or 11 2/3%, the same frequency as tuna.
When they see you/predators, they will inflate and you will bounce once touching them, losing 7 points. They are not edible while inflated.
They can also be a bit dangerous: If there is a bigger fish behind you and you bounce, you may bounce into it and be eaten. They are eaten by pompano, tuna, leopard sharks, orcas, marlins, pelicans and humphead wrasse. They're drawn out by the Intruder in Hazards Abound and Reefo Relaxo before being evicted for the last time in Tricky Treats.
Unlike most small fish, Pufferfish never come in schools.
- As the pufferfish is inflating when he is seeing you, you can eat him when he can't see you, so try eating him when you are behind him.
- If you are quick enough at clicking the left mouse button when close to one, you can eat him before he manages to inflate.
- Pufferfish are immune to shrinkshrooms and looney lures because they’re too small to be effected.
Interaction with another predators Edit
When a inflated Pufferfish bumps into a predator (NPC), the predator will turn the opposite way.
Bouncy Bonus: Edit
In 'Bouncy Bonus' you will see lots of pufferfish. You must eat them all before time runs out.
