Entity 12 - "Howlers"
rating: +3+x

Entity Number: 12

Habitats: Level 0


Howlers are unseen creatures that howl prominently when someone enters the Backrooms. No one has ever seen a Howler. They were described by Reddit user u/TheNecromancer72 as invisible "sentinels"; this is yet to be proven.


It is known that they are provoked by loud noises and howl loudly in response to them. Many explorers have produced theories on where these Howlers may be, but no significant progress on finding them has been made yet.


The first report of a Howler came from Reddit user u/ronniechan123 in a list of creatures found in Level 0, Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. In the original post, the Howlers were simply described as "unseen creatures who howl slightly when you enter the Backrooms".

Do's and Dont's:


  • Stay as quiet as possible once a howl is heard
  • Vacate the area as soon as possible


  • Attempt to call for help
  • Go near the source of the howls
  • Stay in the area where the howls were heard
