This article is about Red Eyeye. You may be looking for Eyeye.

The Red Eyeye is a type of passive life form belonging to the fauna category. It is a subspecies of the Eyeye. It is found in the Inactive Lava Zone and Active Lava Zone.


The Red Eyeye is nearly identical to an Eyeye, with a few differences in terms of coloration:

  • Its singular eye possesses a dull orange sclera and an intense red and orange iris surrounding its black pupil.
  • Its body is mostly dark a green-yellow color, and possesses blue markings.
  • Its fins emit bright orange bioluminescent glows.


The Red Eyeye, much like its relative, is a slow swimmer. It gently glides aimlessly through the vast space of the Inactive Lava Zone.

Upon noticing the player, the Red Eyeye will swim away slowly.

Like its relative, the Red Eyeye will be 'bullied' by other creatures in the area.

Data Bank EntryEdit

An adaptation of the common eyeye, evolved to inhabit high temperature environments.

  1. Thermal Camouflage:
    Deep red and orange coloration enables this subspecies to blend into volcanic environments.

It is unclear whether the evolutionary ancestors of the eyeye subspecies originated in high temperature environments and later evolved to survive in cooler waters, or vice versa. Either way, that such a slow, defenseless organism has survived in any environment suggests some ecosystem role that is as yet unexplained.

Assessment: Edible, low calorie count
