  • Normal Mode
  • Hard Mode
  • Super Hard Mode

Message Packs

Message packs are mysterious messages found on the field that were left behind by unknown hunters. Many of the tutorial messages and LMA reports appear to be from the same person. Messages commonly appear after clearing dead-end rooms or around special areas such as the arena or pizzeria.

"There are some obviously different from the others. They're both tough."
— King and Queen
"Huh? What is this place? An audience? Hostiles? Aiyeeee! Help me!"
— What's an Arena? 4
"Wanted: Challengers confident in their skills. Survival not guaranteed."
— The Arena Challenge
"The legendary pizza that time shaped into a weapon! Enjoy! It's bombalicious!"
Coco Hut

— Dear Rookies 18
"Visible traps are sometimes scarier than the invisible ones. Poison spikes?"
— Dear Rookies 19
"Shadows and light that move as living things? Splendid be this place, splendid!"
