Bats are often found in dark and quiet places throughout Oddworld, including both Scrabania, Paramonia and the Stockyards. Although they appear mostly harmless, they are vicious carnivores that prey on any creature that hangs from their nesting ledge or jumps into their nesting area.
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee Edit
Bats are first seen in Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee as a natural enemy, restricting access to certain ledges or forcing Abe to move fast or be killed by the bats. Bats can not be killed in Abe's Oddysee but are able to kill Abe in one hit.
Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Edit
Bats make a return in Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty in a largely similar role. However, in New 'n' Tasty bats can now be killed by throwing rocks or bottle caps at them. The bats are also less dangerous, taking multiple hits (even on the hard difficulty level) to kill Abe.
- Boombats were originally supposed to replace bats in New 'n' Tasty, but the idea was dropped during development.
- Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty contains an achievement for killing a bat with a rock, called Rockin' Mudokon.
