Baron Samedi

Old Sprite

Death is a deity that has the ability to kill any living object.


Death wears a black coat and has a skull face. She looks similar to the other Horsemen of the Apocalypse, however she has a nose, her teeth are more straight and the eyes are smaller.

Known Behavior

Death is the most dangerous NPC in-game, capable of killing any living creature with a single touch.

In the original Scribblenauts game, Death spawns wielding her scythe and was unable to ride any vehicle. But those behaviors were removed in later games.

Death has a total of 250 health points, capable of taking various shots from the bazooka. God is not hostile towards her, since her death touch isn't considered an attack, but death can instantly kill him with her touch.

In Scribblenauts Unmasked she can only kill one creature per level, after killing she will self-destruct.

Avoiding Death

Giving a taming adjective (mind control device, cupid arrow, friendly adjective...) to Death does not work since her touch isn't an attack, but she isn't totally unavoidable, here are some way to survive her:

  • Giving the Nonhazardous removes her death touch, however she still tries to use it;
  • The Immortal adjective makes her unable to kill you;
  • The Force Field makes Death unable to touch you;
  • When Death has the Blind adjective makes her ignore every living creature around her;
  • Strangely, if you give him the unavoidable adjective, he will follow you around but not try to kill you, rendering him harmless. This applies even when he is given any sort of weapon.



  • In the original Scribblenauts, Death had adjectives related to various cultural interpretations of death, for some reason, a lot of synonyms were removed in later games, these being:
    • Azrael, an angel in the Abrahamic religions;
    • Baron Sademi, one of the loa of Haitian Vodou;
    • Hades, god of the dead in ancient Greek;
    • Mors,  the personification of death in Roman mythology;
    • Thanatos,  the personification of death in Greek mythology;
    • Yama, god of death in Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
  • In Scribblenauts Remix, if you make him angry, he will do plasma damage from punching, not instant death. This shows that instant death is just an ability, also his "interact" emotion.
