From Don't Starve Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Mr. Skitts is a small, serpent-like Shadow Creature that can appear at any time while the player's Sanity is below 82.5%. He cannot attack or be attacked. When approached, he will turn and slither away, disappearing from the screen. His only purpose is to remind players of their Sanity level and provide a scare.

Mr. Skitts will sometimes flicker on the screen for a fraction of a second, then disappear. He can also be seen flying into Obelisks as they are raised and flying back out of them when they are lowered.

He can also be seen coming out of chests in trapped set pieces and ornate chests when the player opens them, springing the trap.
