Playing InDev - and running around foraging, finally came across some Kinkojin (I could hear them) and continued foraging and ignoring them are they ran away. But then I was cutting down a tree and two of them attacked me from behind. What! That's new!

Anyone else had them attack? Have you had them attack you one on one or only in mobs?

    I can't yet say much on their behavior, but it seems they think of themselves as forest guardians; start clearcutting and they'll get mad at you. I've only been attacked by one or two at a time I think.
    I think more than I say and say more than I do, but I do more than I used to and plan to continue.
    TUG modder (at least in the ounce of free time that occasionally flits by)

    Oooooo - this is an interesting concept if they do mob/attack you when you start to take trees/foliage/etc. out. I like it.

    That has happened to me to, some times they attack me other times they just run by doing their creepy laugh.

    i have never encountered a Kinkojin til today didnt even know they existed

    i named my world magic, blank seed, 30 secs into the game after picking up 4 gourds i heard one laugh, i looked around and saw something move just out of view down a hill, i ran after it, i got close to it a few times but it never hit me. it vanished and left some mushrooms including 1 :? ghost mushroom

    pure luck and irony with the world name. :lol:

    I've been attacked twice by them; the first time I think I was picking/chopping something, but the second time (different seed) I was just exploring and hadn't picked up/chopped anything in awhile. I was thinking they might be some sort of forest guardian as well, but that second attack seemed to poke a hole in that hypothesis.

    Kinkojin are just plan creepy: I remember when I first heard one I had no idea what that sound was or where it was coming from. I was so creeped out I couldn't see anything. Also being attacked; turning around and nothing being there.

    You know your f*&^* with a creeper in MC but a kinkojin will straight play with your mind.

    Agreed! Cool idea.

    And yeah, they are super creepy. I took a kind of pleasure in attacking one back, weird little guys. :(

    I have found some interesting situations, I have never been attacked from the fron,t and never attacked by two only one, I have had them run up to me and as they get closer they turn and run, on those occasions I had a weapon in my hand.Also if you chase them and get them cornered they will get so upset that they explode into mushroom bits before you can reach them.
