Butterflies are collectible insects in Yooka-Laylee that Yooka can use the Slurp Shot on to restore health, or collect them by coming into contact with them to partially restore the Power Meter.

Butterflies can be found around the world, contained in wooden crates, or spawn after an enemy has been defeated.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Butterflies appear to be generic adolescent butterflies with no legs, a grey body and pink wings with a dark purple outline.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Verlis gave Playtonic Games the idea that the butterflies should produce a screech sound upon being consumed. At first, Playtonic said that they would think about it, but it ended up being in the final game.
  • When eaten or collected for the first time, the first sentence the Butterfly says is almost the same as the only line of dialog it's Banjo-Kazooie version, the Honeycomb, has. (Mmmm... I'm sticky, tasty honey energy!)
