The Mesmer is a small, colourful fish with three design patterns; its four large skin flaps are bluish white capable of emitting green bioluminescent glows at night, with violet stripes and are surrounded by a thin translucent blue film.
Its main body is a shimmery purple color, speckled with purple dots, and ends in a glowing greenish-blue structure that splits into two small fins. Its jagged mouth is of a pinkish color and is surrounded by violet skin. Its eyes features horizontal, "S" shaped pupils and yellow sclerae.
When attacking, the Mesmer's head opens up, revealing its soft, slimy body and four pink stalks topped with sharp teeth. These stalks surround its toothless true mouth.
"It is your primary directive to swim closer to that beautiful creature... Swim closer... Swim closer now... It looks so friendly... Do not resist... Don't struggle... Go closer"
If the Mesmer succeeds in attracting the player, it will attack by opening its body and thrusting it's spiked tentacles towards the player, removing 35% of the health bar, it will then flee.
It can be also seen using this behavior as a self-defense against other larger fauna, fauna of the same size, or even against its own kind. It will also use this as a hunting strategy, able to catch small fauna using it.
It should be noted, that if a Mesmer is killed while using it's hypnosis on a creature or the player, its hypnosis will not cease, and will continue until the creature manages to get away or the player runs out of oxygen. The player has a hard time breaking free from the Mesmer when it is using hypnosis.
- The Mesmer may be able to hypnotize the player while inside PRAWN Suit or Seamoth at a later date. Currently, this is undecided.
