Are These Monsters Really Dancing?

You can produce exciting content by just recording your random gameplay footage in Starfield. This X user certainly gave people some giggles with his recording of a pack of fauna seemingly dancing for the player.

While hilarious because their movements seem like synchronized dancing, this is more likely a defensive fauna trying to chase the player away from their turf.

If you look on the left side of the screen, you can even see a smaller individual scurrying away while its bigger brethren are putting on a show for the player.

The creatures continue their “dance threat” even as user ModernGalaxy_ walks backward away from them.

ModernGalaxy_ said in the comments that the fauna’s movements remind him of West Side Story, although he couldn’t exactly determine why.

Other users chimed in, with ThinkingViolet saying that they also encountered the same creatures doing their dance while playing Starfield. RoadkillRabbit, on the other hand, described the video as “the best footage [he has] ever seen” from Bethesda’s biggest RPG to date.

Another user, Shamanomenon, even suggested that the uploader edit the video to add George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker - Act II: Sugarplum as the background music to the dance.

Last week, a Starfield player said he finally met his parents in the game, but only after spending 200 hours. Moreover, he was surprised at the enormous age gap between his parents, with his mother being 90 and his father 45.
