Tribbles are smallThe tribble is a special artifact that cannot be sold, furry creatures that reproduce at an incredible rate; they are born pregnantdropped, [[Crafting|crafted]] or used for any purpose. Although adorableOnce a tribble finds its way into a [[{{hero or heroine}}]]'s inventory, their ability it will hog the space for a good while. The only way to multiply (and the amount get rid of food they eat) makes them indirectly very dangerousby force - aside from getting a full inventory - involves [[death]].
Tribbles Usually they come in pairs or threes at the beginning, but overtime the {{hero or heroine}}'s loot bag will multiply to fill up with more and more slots of a loot bag, preventing a hero from carrying more valuable treasures. Because few traders want tribbles, the hero will have difficulty selling them, ending up stuck with an increasingly until {{his or her}} inventory is almost full loot bag for some time. Eventually (usually after a day or There are two?) the hero will find somewhere to sell the kinds: Regular tribbles, but it is rarely worth the loss of inventory space in the meantimeand Hungry tribbles.

On the Halloween 2019 update, a new [[side job]] was introduced that - among others - would involve to 'breed a tribble.' It is considered complete once another tribble gets added to the {{hero or heroine}}'s inventory.<ref>{{cite blog|129|Haunted News}}</ref>
== Acquiring ==There are a few ways of obtaining these living artifacts:*Opening a treasure box artifact (bag of trophies, orange box, etc.) obtained from a point of interest or by the end of fishing (2, either regular or hungry)*Opening a black box artifact (mystery box, [[deus ex machina]], etc.) (3 at a time, regular only)*Defeating a [[Boss-monster]] that happens to have a couple in its inventory (hungry only)*A [[Godville_Times#Free_Coupons|newspaper coupon]] could yield a pair of tribbles when traded. (Can be either regular or hungry ones)
Tribbles are found in artifacts like Note that there's a higher chance of encountering tribbles if the [[Box with a question markDaily Forecast]], [[Deus ex machina]], [[Mystery box]], [[wonderbox]], etc., which generally cost 50% godpower and can make in the Godville Times mention a "good or bad" thing happen to the herosudden increase of alien lifeforms.

Tribbles seem While not in an [[adventure]], the tribbles will occasionally multiply to multiply between fill up the end of selling {{hero or heroine}}'s loot bag, preventing them from carrying more valuable treasures and the beginning of the "staring at counter" phasesresorting to return to town more often to try and sell them. While this is happening, an existing artifact might be consumed - replaced by another tribble, though not always.
Because no trader - [[hero-trader]], [[hawker|roadside]], or otherwise - wants to be overburdened with tribbles in their inventories, the {{quote | I looked at the sky and walked into a tree.

{{quote | My loot bag tried to crawl into bushes, but I was lucky A '''hungry tribble''' is an alternate variant of the tribble that behaves much similarly to stop it in timetheir regular lineage. I can deal with these tribbles, but I can't deal with the loss of my loot bag!}}
However, unlike those regular ones, the hungry tribbles take on a more active role by being ferocious to both the {{quote | Furry balls in hero or heroine}} and the [[monster]] {{he or she}} had defeated, and reproducing at an even faster rate by devouring most slain monsters - including their gold, loot bag squeaked cheerfully , and perhaps even [[experience]] (although the latter is unconfirmed.) [[Special monsters]] are also included in their path of destruction (e.g., Bricked monsters will not yield any brick, Questing monsters will have their blueprints devoured, and transformed an obscene rune into a guilty consciencepossibly any WANTED monster proof will not be enough to impress the town sheriff.}})
The {{quote | Finally found some fool who was able to save me from all these hero or heroine}} will occasionally remark in {{his or her}} diary that the hungry tribbles. I even managed to get 9410 gold coins would hurt the {{hero or heroine}} slightly by nibbling {{his or her}} ear with their sharp teeth, or the fact that they'd leave nothing but a single bone for them!{{him or her}}in place of the monster's corpse.

In addition, once the {{quote | A soft tribble went hero or heroine}}'s loot bag had reached a critical mass of hungry tribbles containing ~75% of inventory space, they will evacuate all at once and flee to my handsee the world - presumably on a family vacation. It wheezed Upon doing so, the hungry tribbles typically leave '''large sums of gold''' - perhaps more per tribble than regular ones and purred most likely as overdue rent. In addition, some '''bold artifacts and made me feel better and healthier.even activatables''' (presumably around 5 in total) will appear in their stead as gratitude for mostly taking samples off of the {{hero or heroine}}.
[[CategoryGiven this, while ordinary tribbles are almost always a burden on the {{hero or heroine}}, the gold received from carrying hungry tribbles may very well make it a worthwhile venture. Of course, the fact that these hungry tribbles also consume potential items and gold from defeated monsters may leave the answer of this debate to each their own opinion. {{diary|The tribe of tribbles reached its critical mass and loudly transformed into something that immediately ran off into the forest.
