He was once sentenced to the prisons. He used to lust to hurt women. Now he is an epitome of his perversions.
- The New Gods when asked about the Night lurch.

The Night lurch is an enemy in Fear & Hunger.


Before being twisted within the Dungeons of Fear and Hunger, the Night lurch was a human being. His past identity remains a mystery, however, it is known that he was a serial rapist.

After his capture, the Night lurch was sentenced to the dungeons, where he would eventually suffer at the hands of the blackness and become a manifestation of his perverse nature. Now reduced to little more than a blind monstrosity, he emits clicking sounds from his distorted mouth and exhibits no semblance of comprehension. Where once his eyes resided, now protrude horns that forcefully erupted through his eye sockets. His urges of rape persist, unaffected by his transformation.


There are two Night lurches that can spawn in the game: The first will spawn by and patrol the mine shaft by the ritual circle in Level 5 - Mines - if the player leaves the map and re-enters, they will hear a screech that tells them the Night lurch spawned. The second one patrols the hallway by the ritual circle in Level 7 - Catacombs, and it may be replaced by one afflicted by pollination, at a 50% chance at each start of a playthrough.

These Night lurches are difficult to avoid, as they can leap towards the player in pursuit, however, they are blind, so the player may run/walk past them without them noticing. One should careful, though, as turning their back towards the creature can cause them to rush towards the player character and sexually assault them, causing Anal bleeding for the party leader.

Note that if the player wears the Ghoul outfit, this entity will not become aggressive - unless it is pollinated.

The Night lurch's arms are capable of cutting and using Critical slash which deals 29-41 slashing damage, causes bleeding, 70% chance to inflict critical state, 50% to infect arms. The head uses the attack Nasty bite which deals 16-24 piercing damage and has a 70% chance to infect an arm or leg. The Night lurch can also use a coin flip attack at the end of the second turn: failing the coin flip will cause the protagonist to receive Anal Bleeding debuff and exit the battle, although it is still possible to dodge the leap animation in the overworld.

Cutting both arms will make the Night lurch use Tackle (24-36 blunt damage) at the end of every turn.

It is recommended to either use magic on the head, throw a Priest's lantern at his head or use a Murky vial for a quick kill. Otherwise, the player should offer Rotten meat via Talk while having another party member attack the horn. The head can then be taken out without taking any damage.

There is a 25% chance that the player gets a special interaction at the start of the fight, where they can choose to ambush, wait or run from the battle. If the player is solo, they should run from the fight until the interaction comes up to take out the Night lurch safely.
