Tulips usually do not reside in the same area for too long before wandering to a new location. and will mimic their movements like a puppet. Recently, video files have picked up the sounds of light footsteps, and quiet whispering. However, nothing appeared on the screen until seconds later when a tulip slowly faded into the area, out of thin air. This means that tulips have the ability to stay hidden by becoming completely transparent.

When a tulip has been offered a lily flower, they will become friendly and may act as a traveling buddy.

Survival Guide

Despite their childish appearances, they're still very dangerous and can be potentially life threatening. Below are some tips on how to work around and/or counter the tulips.


  • In order to avoid the tulips, you must stay out of their line of sight. This includes their peripheral view. Despite not having eyes, their vision appears to work slightly worse than the average human.
  • If you ever get copied, distance yourself away from the tulip as fast you can. Their eyes can't reach long distances, so they'll soon forget about you.
  • If one is blocking your way, the best way to scare them off is to violently approach them in a scary demeanor. This will cause them to immediately flee the scenes, and will most likely stay away from that spot. The 2nd best way is to suddenly make a large amount of noise, like a yell or scream. This also causes them to flee the scene.
