Spelunky Wiki

Aliens are weak enemies that may appear escaping from UFOs, piloting Mechs, residing in The Mothership, or incredibly rarely found in Pots.


When a UFO takes damage in mid-air and falls for long enough before exploding, the Alien pilot will bail out of the crashing ship and use a parachute to safely land on the ground.

If they land on solid ground, they will begin roaming back and forth around the platform, spontaneously hopping into the air every so often, even off of cliffs.

Aliens have a special animation for when sent directly upwards, giving them the appearance of happily bouncing on Springs if they find themselves on one.

There is an extremely rare chance they can be found in pots, even outside of The Ice Caves and Neo Babylon.
