Fluorescent Flower are enemies in Bloodborne. There is one found in Byrgenwerth under the bridge that leads to Rom. They may also be encountered throughout Chalice Dungeon .

Fluorescent Flower Information

The only occurrence of these outside of a Chalice Dungeon is in Byrgenwerth. They seem to have a centipede's body, an enormous tooth-filled mouth on their lower chest, and an almost ethereal upper neck and head. On their face/head is a flower that hangs limp while not attacking.

Locations

 

Drops

  • Arcane Haze (Chalice dungeons)
  • ??

 

Strategy

  • These shoot long-distance fireballs in a series of two shots as soon as they see you.
  • While in front of the flower at medium range, it will use its head to sweep at the player or slam it down.
  • While in short range, they will attempt to grab you and do medium damage, or the large mouth on front will spray out a puddle of silver liquid that does small amounts of arcane damage.
  • Both the body and the small flower "head" are target-able.
  • One method is to target the weak spot (head) and shoot it from afar. You have to time your shots because they like to bob their heads a bit, but it's possible to kill them in 2-3 shots while remaining relatively safe.
  • Another method is to dodge close to the body, stay behind the mouth arms, and attack the body with free camera. The flower will attempt to turn sideways to attack with its mouth, but the player will be dragged along with it and stay safe.

 

Notes & Trivia

  • You can sneak up on them from behind.
  • Lore theories exist under Kin Lore.

      They keep their flower completely still when readying a comet, so you can use this moment to either shoot your pistol or throw a fast projectile directly at its weak point. This will easily knock out roughly half its health, making them quick and easy prey. Remember to exercise caution when exploiting their comets, though, as you can't stun them out of this attack. Dodge after placing your shot, then bait the next volley.

      The one in Byrgenwerth can easily be exploited by standing on the raised walkway against the back wall of the building (directly beneath the door to the balcony) and keeping the stone railing between you and the centipede. It will likely spam its comet attacks, but these will be blocked by the railing; your projectiles, however, will go right over the railing if you keep a short distance, allowing you to safely execute it from afar in just two or three hits.

      Not that they're very hard to deal with using melee, but this at least makes the rooms loaded with them a little less time consuming.

        Hey so I had a weird idea as to what this thing could be: it's pretty commonly known in the community that quicksilver/mercury isn't just used for bullets in Yharnam, but in a lot of their weapons and even in blood experiments. This leads to mercury poisoning, which is known to attack the central nervous system, and results in itching or burning sensations, or as if there are bugs crawling all over you or inside your skin.

        Flash forward to the Research Hall, and some of the patients there can be found scratching at themselves incessantly as if covered in bugs. Take a trip to the Fishing Hamlet, and we actually find corpses writhing with tiny blue, bioluminescent insects similar to wharf roaches or centipedes.

        The way I see it, these "Celestial Centipedes" might represent the negative effects of arcane research, with the flower being symbolic of the temptation of knowledge, and the comets seem to represent the burning feeling produced by nerve damage. They even kind of look like a demented nervous system...

            I've noticed that in chalice dungeons, sometimes you will just see the flower sticking out of the floor, approaching it will make the centipede burst out of the ground.

              This is my first page on here, so make sure to critique the hell out it. :) Also, my bad if it's already made. Couldn't find anything on these other than a post about needing a picture still.

                if you run straight at them (the blue flower facing you) and do the sprinting R2, you can one-shot them due to the hitbox clipping the flower on the scythe's way down. I've hit for literally 6500 in that single hit.
