Ancient Fishes are a species of coelacanth indigenous to the realm of Termina. They are a game fish that can be caught within the Swamp Fishing Hole in the Southern Swamp, though they remain near the bottom in its northern reaches, close to a cavern opening. This indicates that they may be subterranean cave fish, unlike real life coelacanths.

This species is active at all times of the day but are easily agitated. Because of this, anglers must use the Gibdo Mask to catch them as for unknown reasons, they fear the living but not the undead.


  • With its brown scales, the Ancient Fish is based more off of the Indonesian coelacanth (Latimeria menadoensis).
