Leeches are minor antagonists in Little Nightmares who appear in The Prison.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Leeches are the first enemy encountered by Six in The Maw, found in dark places in The Prison. If they so much as touch Six, they will drain her of any remaining blood, instantly killing her. Avoiding them is easy, if you're quick and cautious. Some can be found hanging above, some are already on the ground, ready to kill the player, so an awareness of surroundings and Six's lighter are necessary tools to stay alive.

Official Summary[edit | edit source]


In the dark, moist corners of The Maw, the leeches writhe as one, awaiting the swollen wanderers. Slimy, venomous parasites that feed on the living – the leeches truly belong here.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Leeches are long, black, slimy snake-like creatures. They have no discernable face, just a sharp-toothed mouth on one end. They show to have two pair of legs, but have no use for them.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

As there is no way of getting rid of the leeches, avoidance is key. Most leeches will be hidden beneath objects or in the darkness, but blood smears or pools are a clear sign to their location, so keep the lighter on hand. Leeches move quite slowly, so if stuck in an encounter with them, sprint towards the nearest exit.
