The Platapine is a neutral Mob exclusive to the Hamlet DLC which spawns in the Lily Pond Biome. Similar to how Gobblers spawn from Berry Bushes, they will spawn when a Lotus Plant is picked, and will proceed to consume the Flowers of all nearby Lotus Plants if not stopped. They defend themselves with a spinning dash that allows them to flee or inflict damage on enemies.
- The name of the creature is a portmanteau of 'platypus' and 'porcupine'.
- The fast speed and spinning attack in a porcupine-like creature are all likely references to Sonic the Hedgehog, a popular Sega platforming game.
