Notes[edit | edit source]
- T.U.B cannot be damaged or killed.
- However, they will despawn if the Oracle is killed.
- It is advised to stay clear of the Oracle during Blood Moons due to the potential hostility of T.U.B.
- The Digested Worm Food and Rotten Key will be sold in their respective evil's worlds if the opposite evil boss is killed, it is not dependent on what world evil is present. For example, if the Perforators are somehow fought and killed on a Corruption world, the Rotten Key will become available.
- During October, T.U.B will gain an alternate costume where he wears a pumpkin.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Oracle and T.U.B originated from a pet NPC designing contest, which was won by Kiwabug.
Lore[edit | edit source]
The Oracle is a tomboyish 20 year old who, since her young teenage years, has been interested and obsessed with mystic arts. She learnt the meanings and use of tarot cards and practiced fortunetelling until her tellings became more precise and real, using her skills she discovered that she is a descendant of a holy oracle. Although her skill was great, eventually that grew dull by itself and she wanted to learn a more direct mystic art. She wanted to summon a companion. Her skill with fortunetelling made it much easier for her, and within short time she had prepared a summoning circle... Mostly. Although her appearance might look mean, she wouldn't be able to get something like a human heart, and she wouldn't want the type of strong demon that would summon regardless. So she decided to substitute that with some octopus that was in her freezer and a few drops of her blood. In a puff of smoke the summoning was successful, and she heard... slapping sounds? On the ground was a little eye creature with short fat tentacles it was slapping on the ground in confusion. The Oracle's heart melted immediately. She adored this smol monster she named TUB and took care of, even if he wasn't the companion she had in mind. Following that, she uses her clairvoyance to find other cute monsters to buy or rescue, and travels to find them safe homes.
