Haetae is a creature from Chinese and Korean mythology. It's naturally protective of Maxwell and other people/NPCs straight after spawning, and it's also rideable.


Being a fire-eating dog in Chinese Mythology, in Scribblenauts the Haetae will eat fire as well (it can also eat flaming swords.) The Haetae will occasionally roll over if unattended, even if Maxwell's riding it, and will attack hostile people and animals.

He eats almost anything that has fire or is on fire, no matter what size or shape. So for example, he can eat a volcano despite it being much larger than him. When he eats something that is on fire or has fire, he will eat the entire thing, not just the flame. He can still take damage from fire, even though fire is edible to him. He cannot eat the fire that comes from flamethrowers or anything that resembles fire. He will follow you around if you are carrying some that has fire such as a match, lighter or torch, and he will even eat said items even if the flame is washed away or removed. If he eats a building, he will not eat the things that are inside of the building but rather, they pop out of the building when Haetae is done eating it.

Haetaes also eat meat, like any other carnivorous animals. They will protect themselves, but not each other, so if you attack a Haetae near another one, they will start fighting each other. They have 70 health points, capable of taking 3 shots from the gun. They also have a bash attack that deals 32 points of damage, capable of killing a human in two hits.


  • In A8-3 there is a mean Haetae, the only one in the game. The strange thing about this is that if you spawn one while in the level, he will protect you and have the mad icon, this is due to the levels programming mixing with Haetae's programming. The game thinks the one you spawned was the same one as in the level, and since Haetaes are usually protective, the game gets confused and makes the Haetae you spawned be angry and protective at the same time.
  • Haetae appears on the Starite mission Get Busy Living! (or Escape from Palindromeda!) in Palindromeda.
