The Mantis is a mob which defends the Pineapple Patch and the Pine Tree Forest.
It takes 20 minutes for the Mantis to respawn after being defeated. Defeating it gives 5 battle points and 250 honey. There is an approximately 1/5 chance that defeating it will also reward a ticket, and an unknown chance that it will give a gumdrop, a pineapple and/or 3 blueberries. The amount of honey and the chance for tickets/gumdrops is increased by Luck.

A good strategy to use with the Mantis is to try to get at the very edge of its enormous jump range. Then, when it stops to get ready to pounce at you, walk in a very wide circle around it. If you do it right, the Mantis will undershoot you and land at where you were a few seconds before. Also, keep in mind the "Jumping strategy" used with most other mobs.
- When Bears give you quests that involve more than one mantis, the plural is spelled incorrectly as "4 Mantiss" rather than "4 Mantises".
- Mantises have the longest attack jump length of any mob, only rivaled by the Werewolf.
- There's a very very low chance to get a Royal Jelly from defeating a Mantis
