Cannibals are common, cannibalistic enemies.


Cannibals spawn in groups of four in dark areas.

Creature Creators

Cannibals can spawn from creature creators inside Torture Chambers.


When killed, Cannibals drop 0-2 feathers or quills.


Cannibals were the second creature added to Venture, the first being men. They could run as fast as the player. They would occasionally appear wearing breastplates, but this would have no protective effect. When killed, Cannibals gave 80 points, but never dropped their breastplates. Cannibals also swing their arms when they attacked.

At a time unconfirmed, Brendan removed breastplates from Cannibals. Cannibals were also decided to drop feathers, because what the hell are they supposed to drop when killed?


Cannibals can deal damage through closed doors.

Cannibals spawn in groups of four and will pursue the player on sight from forty meters away. Cannibals will attempt to avoid obstacles, including sheer cliffs and lava, and will try to find the shortest path towards the player. Unlike Shooters, cannibals do not try to avoid being hit, and continue to pursue the player even when being attacked. Cannibals can sometimes deal damage through a closed door. Like all creatures, cannibals will always hover on water, even if their target is below them.

At dawn, generally when the sun is when the moon can no longer be seen, all cannibals will catch fire and burn once exposed to direct sunlight. Creatures with head armor are immune to sunlight, but the armor piece will take damage. They will make an attempt to seek out shade during this time, or enter bodies of water to protect themselves from burning up, but will exit protective areas to chase a nearby player.


  • There is a tribe of cannibals called the Clip.
  • Cannibals eat cerebrums and pancreases.
  • The blood on their mouths is one of the main reasons for Venture's T rating.
  • The blood on their mouths is inaccurate, as no lifeforms on Planet Venture have red blood cells.
