Hemotropic Butterfly ((こう)(けつ)(ちょう)()()()()()()(), Kōketsuchō) is a species of crimson-colored butterflies found on Zevil Island.[1]


Hemotropic Butterflies have a red body and bright red wings. The tips of their wings are a darker shade of red.


Hemotropic Butterflies can detect the scent of blood from a good distance. The more blood there is, the more butterflies gather around the victim. However, like ordinary butterflies, they can also feed on nectars.[1]
