Nuclear Throne Wiki
Nuclear Throne Wiki

The place where all mutants gather around a campfire, ready to start their journey to the Nuclear Throne.

Besides Fish, who always spawns directly above the campfire, Eyes, who is on the right, Melting on the left and Crystal below, all other mutants' positions are randomly generated.


All the mutants can be seen doing their own idle animation when around the fire. When selected, a new animation plays. When unselected, the normal animation plays. When random is selected, the camera will focus on the campfire instead of the selected mutant.

  • Fish will play a guitar on a log. He will sing when selected.
  • Crystal will polish her hand. She will inspect her polishing job from multiple angles when selected.
