Cave Centipede

We're Getting Mutants in the MCU - The Loop


Cave Centipedes are large hostile arthropods that spawns rarely underground, on levels y=0 and below.


Cave Centipedes are long, and segmented into parts (separate entities from the head). The head is mostly a purple color, along with the mandibles, while the rest of the body is black. The legs and antenna on the contrary are an red color. If going over a block, the Cave Centipede's segments slope.


Cave Centipedes are hostile and strong, however this is countered by their slow mobility. Damaging any of the Cave Centipede's segment entities also deals damage to the head entity. Cave Centipedes attack via biting, which inflicts Poison II on targets for 10 seconds. Cave Centipedes target players and Cockroaches.

On death, Cave Centipedes can drop one of their legs, a valuable crafting ingredient that can brewed with Komodo Dragon Spit to create Poisonous Essence, as well as create a pair of leggings that grant the ability to climb blocks.
