A Stranger Plant is a summonable familiar released with introduction of the Summoning skill. It requires level 64 Summoning. The familiar is summoned by using a Stranger plant pouch, and will give you 3.2 summoning experience.

Components: 1 empty pouch, 128 spirit shards, 1 crimson charm, and 1 bagged plant. Making a pouch gains 281.6, and using a pouch gains 3.2 summoning experience.

It has a special move called Poisonous Blast, which can be activated if you have a Poisonous blast scroll in your inventory. In addition, the Stranger plant has the ability to forage Strange fruit occasionally.


Stranger plant pouch

A Stranger Plant Pouch is used in the Summoning skill to summon a Stranger Plant. It is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 128 spirit shards, a Crimson charm and a bagged plant in your inventory. It gives 281.6 Summoning experience when made, and 3.2 when used. Using this pouch on a Summoning obelisk will enable you to create 10 Poisonous Blast Scrolls.

Poisonous blast scroll

The Poisonous blast enables the use of the poisonous blast power for a Stranger Plant familiar. It is made by using a Stranger Plant pouch on a Summoning obelisk, creating 10 scrolls.


Poisonous blast

Poisonous Blast is an effect generated via the Poisonous Blast scroll. In order to create this effect, you must first have summoned a Stranger Plant.

The special has the effect to attack with 50% chance of poisoning your opponent and inflicting 2 damage.

Poisonous Blast is part of the Summoning skill and as such grants 3.2 Summoning XP when the scroll is created and another 3.2 Summoning XP when the scroll is activated.

The Stranger Plant will occasionally use a similar power instead of its normal attack, regardless of whether a scroll is used. It also does not identify an opponent in Duel Arena matches; therefore disallowing an opponent the ability to attack it. It is not clear whether this is intended, or merely a bug.

  • The stranger plant is an allusion to the Strange plant, which was a random event.
  • The Strange Plant may be based on an enemy in the Legend of Zelda Wind Waker called a Boko Baba, which is a descendant of the Deku Baba from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. It may also be based on a Bio Deku Baba, which was an enemy in Majora's Mask.
  • The loud dialogue of the familiar itself may be a reference to the plant from the movie Little Shop of Horrors, where the main character interacts with a loud plant that behaves much like this one. The shout of "DIIIIVE!" may be a reference to the famously loud Brian Blessed, in his role as the leader of the birdmen in the film Flash Gordon.
