Naedocyte Shockers are the soldiers of the Naedocyte Collective, usually found roving in great swarms. Their primary objective is to protect their Breeders, as well as build up the ambient static charge that both serve as their primary source of nourishment and primary means of attack. A most peculiar group of Hoxxes natives - but one that should not be underestimated, despite their almost cute appearance. We have lost many miners to them already.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Naedocyte Hatchling is a hostile Creature. It will only spawn from Naedocyte Roe, which in turn can only spawn from Naedocyte Breeders.

Hatchlings are the product of a hatched Roe sack. When it bursts, the Roe sack spawns five Hatchlings at once which will seek and destroy any threats to the Breeder. Functionally they are almost identical to the Naedocyte Shocker with the same amount of health and behaviour, and the same levitation ability. However they do not have the ability to shock a Dwarf, and their attacks will not slow the player down when they land.

A Naedocyte Roe will spawn multiple Hatchlings at once.

The presence of Hatchlings will indicate that a Breeder is nearby, and the wispy trails they leave behind linger for a second after their death which can reveal their flight path. Until the Breeder is killed, there is no limit to the amount of Hatchlings which can spawn.

  • While hatchlings are implied to be the infant versions of Naedocyte Shockers, they have several differences from their parent creature, most notably the short spikes on all four of their "limbs".
