|“||Offspring of Shadow and Crystal, Boodoos are contradictory creatures. Its uncanny appearance belies a gentle soul who enjoys home-cooking, collecting vintage dolls and artisanal craft-making. A Boodoo's shakers and ornamental headdress represent only a small portion of its creative pursuits; monsters far and wide will travel to witness the unveiling of a Boodoo original.||”|
The Boodoo is a navy blue humanoid monster whose appearance evokes that of tribal ceremonial wear. Its face is covered by an enormous gray-beige mask and a leafy orange and red headdress, so it is unknown what its face looks like. It also has black eyes with glowing purple pupils. Its face also has gray eyelids. The mask itself is skull-like, with teeth at its bottom, and there are eight small gold skulls in its headdress. There is a turquoise crystal on the mask's forehead, and there are more turquoise crystals in its headdress. Its body has a lavender pattern on the chest that resembles a human ribcage, and bone patterns on its arms and legs. It has two feet, each with two toes, and always carries a pair of turquoise crystal shakers that are shaken to produce sound. It is implied that Boodoos themselves made the shakers with crystals they found somewhere, alongside many other artistic objects that remain unknown by players.
When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo by walking sideways back and forth like a crab then stopping the middle. This motion is a bit like that of the Bellowfish, but much faster and energetic.
The Boodoo shakes its headpiece and strikes its crystal shakers together making to make sounds similar to a tambourine.
The Boodoo can be bred using a combination of two pure element Ethereal Monsters. Possible combination(s):
Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in shards per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.
Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute. The food per level is the same for all Ethereal monsters of the same element count and can be found in this article.
Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster (if not using a Unity Tree), the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%. Below are the things liked by Boodoo:
See the Likes page to view a complete list of all monsters' likes.
