DescriptionA changeling attracted to knowledge.
Now that it has been discovered that mimics can take more than one forms there has been a rush to study why they choose the form they do. Unfortunately no academics return from the UnderMine, making data collection quite difficult. Perhaps in the future there will be a new market for information collection on these and other dangerous creatures.

The Strange Mimic is an enemy in UnderMine. It masquerades as a standard Chest until it is attacked or interacted with. It attacks the player by leaping at them. It can be distinguished from a normal thorium Chest from its redder sparkles or observing it shuddering when a Potion of True Sight.pngPotion of True Sight is consumed.

It is not damaged by Relics such as the Large Ember.pngLarge Ember or the Lightning Bomb.pngLightning Bomb's electricity until it is revealed. It will reveal itself if it is standing in burning oil or electrified water.

When killed it drops the same contents as the chest it was mimicking.

Strange Mimic spawn rate increases significantly if the player is afflicted with Metamfiezomaiophobia.pngMetamfiezomaiophobia. If the player is cursed with Empty Coffers.pngEmpty Coffers, all closed thorium Chests are Strange Mimics. They will still drop their normal chest loot.

It does not drop food if the player has Leftovers.pngLeftovers.
