The Butterfly is an entity that lives inside the In-Between. It is a butterfly made from rift shards.


Season 6

  • During the Nexus section in the Butterfly event, the Butterfly came into shape, made from rift shards, and started flying around the players. After flying for a few seconds, the butterfly landed on the players' fingertip, teleporting them back into the island, with the Loot Lake drastically changed, and the darkness that once rose, now gone.

Season X

  • The Butterfly makes a cameo during the Season X cinematic trailer, flying towards the CUBE while inside the loop, referencing the Butterfly live event.

Chapter 2, Season 2

  • The Butterfly makes a comeback during the end of the Astronomical Event, when the players are seemingly being sucked by something similar to the black hole, but end up being teleported back to the island by the Butterfly.

Chapter 2, Season 4

  • Though it makes no physical appearance, after infecting Galactus with Gamma-Infected battle busses, Galactus passes out and falls into a rift, shaped like a butterfly. This is likely a nod to The Butterfly.
