The Humpback Anglerfish is a small type of deep-sea fish found in both games. It is native to deep areas.

In-Game Description

"This fish has a huge mouth and long teeth, along with a special glowing protrusion growing from its head. It waves the protrusion to lure prey close, then eats it whole."


This anglerfish can puff up its body to swallow prey that is even larger than itself, but if the prey is too large the anglerfish may also die.

Its teeth can be pushed inwards but not outwards, so prey cannot escape after being swallowed.


Endless Ocean

These can be seen under glows in the Abyss.

Endless Ocean 2

These can be seen in the same spots in the Zahhab Region Depths, under a glow at the co ordinates B2 in the middle of the square. 


These fish swim around under glows, by themselves, or with Barreleyes.


  • These can be found day and night in both games.
  • This is one of Oceane's favorite creatures.
  • This creature is also found as young, but only in Endless Ocean.
