Dawndus is a planet found in Meteos and Meteos Wars.

Planetary DataEdit

Dawndus is a fairly small planet, estimated to be approximately 3,400 kilometers in diameter. It possesses a small moon of unknown origin and name in orbit around it. Dawndus also comes with a quirk about its atmosphere: due to composition and other factors present, light is deflected around the entire planet in a way that causes it to appear to be either dawn or dusk at all times everywhere on the planet.

Dawndus appears in Star Trip mode's Multi route as part of the Hot & Chillies, alongside Freaze.

The Dawndusians are a race of red humanoid cycloptic beings. They have two visible protrusions on the sides of their heads, which can be extended. When extended, two more protrusions can be seen out of the top and bottom of their heads. Due to the permanent sunrise or sunset of their planet, the Dawndusians have developed into insomniacs, but pretend to sleep regardless.

Meteos DataEdit

To unlock Dawndus, the player must fuse 300 Air, 1200 Fire, and 300 Soil Meteos together in the Fusion Room. Dawndus' Sound Set, Drumline, is fused with 300 Zoo Meteos.

Meteos EncountersEdit

Dawndus boasts a high an equal balance of Air, Fire, Soil, Herb, and Zoo Meteos that fall upon the planet.


Dawndus possesses 8 columns to launch the Meteos from, which, combined with its fairly normal gravity, make it a rather run-of-the-mill planet. While ignitions are capable of getting off of the screen if they aren't carrying many Meteos, five or six consecutive ignitions will be required in order to get anything much bigger off of the screen. Combined with Burnt Meteos reverting to their matchable forms taking longer than usual, this makes Dawndus a good planet to learn how to chain ignitions together on. However, Dawndus also suffers from not only the absence specialization, lacking the attacking capabilities of planets such as Hotted, or the defensive abilities of planets like Wuud, but not being particularly good at anything in the first place (unlike Geolyte, which is in a similar situation, but can do well using the same strategies), making it useless against skilled AI or players, though it can be used well by players of any skill level.

Meteos Wars DataEdit

Meteos Wars - Mission Mode 1-2 - Dawndus

Dawndus made its second appearance in Meteos Wars, as an unlockable planet. Like any other unlockable planet, it could be unlocked by defeating it as the fifth Unknown planet in Mission Mode.

Dawndus felt exactly the same Meteos frequencies and types as it did in its first appearance, and was changed very little between games, though it doesn't fall prey to the same issue. With the addition of a mandatory time limit, Dawndus' scoring capabilities can be brought out, making it a more reliable choice. This, combined with its new Planet ImpactGambit, allows Dawndus to have a chance against most planets, though it can still struggle at times with its lack of specialization.


  • Dawndus' PAL name, Insomnis, is derived from the sleep disorder insomnia, a condition where those afflicted by it experience difficulty sleeping, and staying asleep.
