Bug Fables Wiki

The Ancient Artifacts are items rumored to be clues to find the Everlasting Sapling. These are objects Team Snakemouth tries to find through the game on their quest.

List of Artifacts

Ancient Mask


The Ancient Mask is found in Snakemouth Den. It is guarded by Spider and obtained in Chapter 1.

Picking it up triggers a trap which floods the caverns. The mask seems to have 3 eye sockets on one side, and some lenses made of crystals on the other side.

During Chapter 7, The Ancient Mask is used by the Wasp King to summon the other Artifacts to unlock the Everlasting Sapling, and during the Final Battle with The Everlasting King.

Ancient Tablet

The Ancient Tablet is found in the Golden Hills. It is guarded by Venus and obtained in Chapter 2. It contains instructions on how to find the Sapling, as well as how to disable its shield.[1]

Before the event of the game, Venus was asked by a Roach to protect the Ancient Tablet. After Team Snakemouth makes through her trial, she handles it to the team. It appears to be a piece of rock or wood with ancient languages written on it.

During Chapter 7, the Ancient Tablet is used to disable the shield that protects the sapling. During the final battle, it is also used to generate bubble shields, and always takes 3 hits to knock away.

Ancient Key Pieces

The first key piece is found in the Honey Factory as the core of the factory. It is guarded by Heavy Drone B-33 and obtained in Chapter 3.

The second key piece is found in the Ancient Castle. It is guarded by The Watcher and obtained in Chapter 4.

They are used to unlock the shell containing the Everlasting Sapling.

During the final battle, both key pieces can fire laser beams at their targets, or assemble together as a lightsaber to slash at their opponents for very high damage.

Ancient Crown

While not directly related to the main story, according to a Roach in the Giant's Lair, this crown also holds ancient power same as other ancient artifacts, and is stolen by the Wasp King. It is said that it amplifies any existing magic within the wearer, as well as granting a powerful Wasp mind control effect. It was created by the Roaches to protect themselves from the Wasps.[1] The Roach guard says that they tossed the crown out out.

If you buy all the Trinkets from the merchant in Metal Island, he will tell you he fished up a crown in the past and that he gave it to a young boy. That crown is heavily implied to be the Ancient Crown that the Roaches tossed, and the boy who wanted it was Hoaxe.

Upon defeat of The Everlasting King, the Crown appears in Team Snakemouth's house as a Trophy.
