A creeping hand is a pet that can be purchased for 5 zeal in the Soul Wars minigame or from Stanley Limelight for 60 thaler.

Players need a stuffed or unstuffed crawling hand to purchase one, obtained as a very rare drop from the crawling hand Slayer monster. This imposes an indirect level 5 Slayer requirement on obtaining the pet. A Summoning level of 4 is also required in order to obtain and summon it. The creeping hand eats gloves and leather gloves, and may be stored in the menagerie of a player-owned house.



  • When feeding a creeping hand it will say "Finger food; my favourite." This is a reference to the mounted crawling hand in a POH who will say it eats finger food when asked.
  • Trying to feed the creeping hand anything other than leather gloves or gloves will result in the message "The hand doesn't like the look of that."
  • While following you, the creeping hand may randomly say, "I can't feel my arms!" and "How handy am I?!" This is a clue that he has become more hungry.
  • The line "There's no wrist for the wicked." is a pun on the idiom "There's no rest for the wicked".
