It is currently unknown, if any (mini-)bosses besides Bolbox drop any rare, shiny meat. As such, the wiki founder has decided to remove the rare, shiny meat entry from all (mini-)boss article for the time being.

Feel free to contact Zenki and remove this template from this article, if you have found the values and can prove them via screenshots. Thank you very much for your understanding.


The Green Zinichthys will generally swim around aimlessly and at a slow pace.

At random times, it will stop doing so, swifly turn into the protagonist's direction and charge at them while quickly swimming through the air.

If it gets too close, it will quickly bite them and deal a great amount of damage.

Even colliding with the Green Zinichthys is very harmful if the protagonist isn't fully evolved.

Due to its randomness, the Green Zinichthys might spend most of the time being idle and completely harmless, while in other playthroughs, it might charge and attack the player in short intervals and bite them up to three times in a row.

Unlike a regular Zinichthys, the Green Zinichthys gives no warning before attacking.

How to deal with it

Due to the Green Zinichthys being very random in its behaviour, the player should always be wary when fighting it.

The best attack against it is the jumping attack, as it stuns the Green Zinichthys for a very short duration and allows the protagonist to avoid both it and Bolbox.

The player should also be aware, that Bolbox will attempt to stretch out his head to attack them and sometimes wiggle towards them while they are fighitng the Green Zinichthys.

Using bites, striking weapons or horns isn't advised, as the Green Zinichthys will almost immediately recover from being stunned by them, leaving the protagonist open to its attacks.

A good way to deal with both it and Bolbox is by standing in the left corner of the boss arena and using the kick attack, but this is only possible when playing as a quadrupedal mammal. If the player chooses to do so, they also should make sure, that the protagonist has a high kick stat, as the strength of this stat also determines how far the Green Zinichthys will be knocked away, giving it less of a chance to bite the protagonist.

Bolbox himself won't receive any knockback, but he will immediately retreat for awhile, if his head is hit by the kick attack.
