The Extra-Adorable Lavae is a follower added into the Reign of Giants official release of Don't Starve Together. It has 250 health and can be hatched from the Lavae Egg. The Lavae will follow the tooth that dropped from the same egg as it spawned from. It will provide light, heat and allows food to be cooked on it, like a Campfire and Dwarf Star. The Extra-Adorable Lavae is smaller than the hostile Lavae, allowing them to be distinguished a little easier.

Lavae eat Ashes and Charcoal and will starve if they don't eat enough. If a Lavae gets really hungry it will set things on fire on its own so it can eat, ignoring the player. Like Smallbirds, Lavae will starve to death (after 2 days, or 16 real minutes) if they can't find anything to eat, so it must be constantly fed. Ashes and Charcoal both restore 18.75% each (6 clock segments, or 3 real minutes) of Lavae's hunger.

If a Lavae is frozen, it will turn into a rock and die after a while unless it is hit. It takes 3 hits from the Ice Staff to be frozen. Upon death, Lavae's Tooth will turn to Ashes. In A New Reign beta, the Lavae will then become a Chilled Lavae.


  • Lavae are very useful in Winter as they are essentially walking campfires, though they produce less light.
  • The heat Lavae radiate is enough to set objects on fire, so caution is advised.
  • Inspecting Lavae will tell where her hunger currently resides. (Ex: Webber says "It's my friend!" at 100%-76%, "Happy Lavae" at 75%-51%, "Poor hungry Lavae" at 51%-26%, and "It's starving!" under 26%)
  • The Lavae is one of the few companions that can follow the player between the Caves and the overworld.

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • The name Lavae is a portmanteau of lava, and the plural of larva (larvae), a juvenile stage of some insects.
