Butterflies are non-interactive characters that can be found flying around in a variety of places around RuneScape. There are a number of varieties, but they only differ in appearance and examine text. Players may use a wily cat to chase and kill most butterflies in order to exercise it to prevent it from becoming lazy, but otherwise they serve no use. Wily cats are unable to kill Tiger Swallowtail and Viceroy butterflies, as they will always be unable to reach their prey. The Memorial to Guthix butterflies are not recognised as prey at all.

During The Fremennik Trials, a number of butterflies appear in the Fremennik Province, and must be tracked with the Hunter's talisman in order to lure out The Draugen. The Draugen will only be connected to one of the butterflies at a time.
