They are aggressive in real life too. RIP Steve Irwin.
More Manta Encountering Tips
So I once found one of these little sh*ts and thought it was passive like real mantas.
Do not go up to it
It will sting u and everyone in the water!
It is a killer pancake!
I repeat a killer pancake!
Non violent?! Bruh this dude is suuuupper violent .
If you are planning on doing anything involving water prepare to despise these flat horrors. They can out swim you. They can swarm you. They can act friendly and once you turn your back eat your tame. Beware.
They say passive tame because YOU are the one that’s supposed to be passive, same way it says “non-violent” it’s talkin bout you NOT the actual tame, sheesh
This guy killed my lystro and dodo, i am crippled and sad
If caught in open water by a manta fight don't flee. If you have a spear or pike swim up as it gets close. This keeps you above it attack area and puts you in striking range. The manta is slower moving up and down in the water.
The manta is quite dangerous, as it's attacks can punch straight through armour, even flak. They are very fast and unless you have lots of oxygen and speed, you will not escape. Just poke your head underwater and look left and right before crossing the sea. It's like a road, but worse, because roads don't have angry stingrays, very large sharks and/or killer piranha
Note to self: Do not pet the death pancake.
A waffle of maddness
