The Mumbler (Infected) is an enemy encountered in Fear & Hunger. They are the infected version of the Mumbler.


This Mumbler potentially encountered a Brain Flower while roaming the Thickets. Now firmly attached to her head, the plant depends on her as its lifeline. In comparison to other creatures hosting the Brain Flower parasite, she appears to undergo fewer physical alterations.


Mumblers can be found patrolling on both levels of the Thicket, although there are none in the Cockroach King's lair or the path leading to it. Two of them are infected with a Brain Flower.

The head will use Soul binding 33% of the time, which will reduce the Mind of a target to 50.

The head can be easily destroyed; however, it will deal 8-12 damage to and poison a single target after being attacked, this is recommended if a White vial is available to the player. If only Mind healing items are available to the player, they should go for the arms and then the torso, however, they should avoid ending a fight with 0 Mind as that will immediately cause Panophobia. If neither are available to the player, they should just avoid fighting Mumblers entirely.

The brain flower will use Pollen every turn, which will infect the target and cause them to attack anyone with -50% hit rate. It is not recommended to fight an infected Mumbler without additional party members to take out the brain flower on the first turn.

It should be noted that the Marriage player character, Nas'hrah, and the Ghouls will have their maximum Mind reduced permanently from Soul binding.
