Chaotic Polymorphine

From Noita Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Chaotic Polymorphine is a purple magical liquid which transforms creatures that come into contact with it into almost any other random creature.


Chaotic Polymorphine turns affected creatures into a random enemy or passive creature which can include anything from Helvetinmato to fish. The only invalid transformation outcomes are Minä and certain enemy categories noted below.

All abilities of the new creature becomes available to the affected upon assuming the new form, which means if a weak miner hiisi turns into a worm it'll be able to tunnel around the map for the entire duration while being much harder to kill and bleeding Worm Blood. Similarly, if you turn into a fire spirit while submerged, you'll instantly die due to exposure to liquid, which snuffs its flames.

While transformed, all damage done to you only affects the new form and won't hurt Minä once its effect ends. However, if the new form dies, you die too.

This substance is extremely risky but rewarding to use, being able to turn you into a powerful pseudo-boss enemy, or a totally defenseless fish which will die in one hit.


There is a maximum limit of polymorphing attempts before the transformation becomes permanent. Noita will display a message indicating the gods are getting angry with you at 70 transformations, eventually issuing the message The gods are very angry with you at 85 transformations. Every transformation thereafter has a 5/101 chance to be permanent, and once a permanent transformation has occurred, polymorph will no longer polymorph you.

Random Pool

Possible Polymorphs pool (normal)

The function is hard-coded, and not in the usual player-available files. The listing was initially tested for around 20,000 simulated runs in 0 progress save, but was eventually confirmed in the engine code. There are two pools, a normal pool and a rare pool. The rare pool has a 1/20001 chance to be used.

  • 126 kinds of enemy are included in the normal pool
  • The rare pool contains:
  • The polymorph function is otherwise randomly distributed between every possible enemy in the chosen pool.
Chaos Polymorph Creatures (normal pool)



  • Washing off a Effect polymorph random.png Chaos polymorph stain can free you from permanent polymorph, but not all creatures can be stained.
  • While polymorphed into an enemy, you will not be attacked by other enemies not hostile to that faction (for example, Hiisi will not attack other Hiisi). This will not ignore Berserkium, though, which makes an enemy creature attack everything regardless of faction. It is common for summoned or charmed creatures, including Plague Rats and Homunculi to attack a polymorphed player on sight.
  • You can dispel the effects of Personal Fireball Thrower on an enemy or yourself by polymorphing it.
  • You will become a valid target for Homing while polymorphed. If you shoot a wand with the Homing modifier on the spells and are then polymorphed, the shots will target you as well.
  • SPOILER: Kolmisilmä has a material vulnerability to chaotic polymorphine at 13 Orbs.
