The Gacha is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved's Extinction expansion.

Basic Info[]


W tej sekcji znajduje się kopia dossieru napisanego przez Helenę Walker. Możliwe, że istnieją różnice między informacjami w tym tekście a prawdziwym stworzeniem w grze.


A gentle giant, Macrodryadis crystallinus spends its days foraging for food in the dense forest it calls home, though it rarely has to look very far. Thanks to its extraordinary digestive system, not only can Macrodryadis eat just about anything, but it can also turn a diet of scraps into a mountain of precious resources.

Instead of producing excrement, Macrodryadis grows glittering crystals upon its back, which fall off when they reach their full size. Shattering these crystals can yield precious resources, as Macrodryadis is somehow able to transmute the materials it eats into something entirely different.

One of our pilots likened the process to the gachapon machines from his memories of growing up in Japan, and I guess the name stuck.


Though its crystals prevent Macrodryadis from wearing a traditional saddle, if its rider is willing to sit in a basket that hangs from Macrodryadis' neck, then they'll find its long claws are well suited for mining resources. Personally though, I'd keep one around just for the crystals. The free presents, the way they glow at night...totally worth the potential nausea from the basket saddle.

The Gacha wanders around in The UnderForest, the deepest area of the Crater Forest, swiping occasionally at rocks, trees and bushes; afterwards they sit back and eat, looking around as they do so. They're big and bulky, with what seems to be great stamina, but they are fairly slow both walking, or "running."

In the wild, the Gacha will occasionally drop Gacha Crystals which contain various items when consumed in the Inventory. These items include many basic resources such as Thatch, Stone, and Wood to more advanced materials such as Silica Pearls, Silk and Congealed Gas Balls. In addition to the basic crafting materials that can be obtained from the Crystals, occasionally the Gacha will produce a different colored, glowing crystal of a certain quality that when opened, produces fully crafted items such as Wooden Tree Platforms or even something with quality such as an Assault Rifle.

When bred, the Gacha will have a gestation period. Once the baby Gacha is born and claimed, it can have different production options that either parents, and the production options can change as the baby matures. So far it seems this could be due to their diet, however it is currently unknown what causes the options to change. Production options do not change once the baby is fully matured. Its crafting skill stat is unaffected by any imprint bonus.


W tej sekcji opisano metody walki z Gachą.


Gacha jest neutralnym stworzeniem i zaatakuje tylko jeśli zostanie zaatakowana.


As the Gacha is usually a passive animal, they really do not become hostile. If you must kill one, they are extremely slow and do low damage. It would be simple to keep out of its range and take one down with a myriad of weapons. The resources they drop when killed are generally very inferior to the contents of the crystals they produce while wild or tamed, so there is very little reason to kill them.


Really any weapon will do so long as you can stay out of their range. Which is not really hard to do.


The are slow passive creatures that pose little threat to your player thus making them not dangerous.


They are slow, have a short attack range and deal minimal damage.


Taming Food[]


Preferred Food[]


When moving, Gachas prefer Berries then Meat, they don't eat Stone while moving, so watch their food meter when traveling long distances and supply it manually with Berries, which Gachas don't harvest, or Meat.


When static, they eat everything and prefer a combination of Stone or crafted items and Snow Owl Pellet Extinction Icon.png

Also Element, all sorts of crafted items, Element Ore, ammunition, as well as resources like Metal, Stone, Flint, Wood and others are accepted. This list is ordered by effectiveness. Additionally, all sorts of Meat, Berries, and Eggs have a very low effectiveness.

KO Strategy[]

The Gacha is not tamed by traditional means, but rather food and items must be dropped in front of it, he eats everything you drop! When tamed, Resource Harvesting is set to disabled by default, though Gacha babies have resource harvesting enabled from birth.


When a male and female Gacha mate (they can be set to Wandering inside the minimum range of a Dino Leash Extinction Icon.png), the mother produces a Gacha baby after gestation. When the baby reaches juvenile stage, it starts collecting Feces. The food meter of Gacha babies goes down faster than Berries feed them, so it is recommended to use Meat or Cooked Meat. Stone also feeds them, but at a much slower rate than Meat.

The Crystal Production wheel of the new Gacha is visible from birth.

The baby Gacha is able to feed from the inventory of an adult Gacha. Further research is needed to determine how many babies a single adult can support and other mechanisms.


NOTE: Gachas are solitary creatures, except when they have one (and only one) mate with them. If there is a same gender gacha within 12+ foundation range, they will become 'sad'; other than their facial expression, they will refuse to look directly at the survivor if "Ally-Looking" is on, they will not pick up resources dropped near them (they will make an expression with their head turned away in front rather than grabbing it), and they will not produce crystal or eat anything in their inventory even if Stone or other resource/item are placed inside.

Also, even if the Gacha of the same gender leaves the sadness range, the previous Gacha with the said gender will remain sad for a time unless reintroduced to the opposite gender Gacha.

Note that baby/juvenile/adolescent Gacha ignores these effect until they are adult, and adults ignores this state towards babies, even if they came from different parents.


An example of the production choices for a Gacha.

Resource Spawner

The Gacha retains its ability to create resources by consuming items and transmuting them into crystals. Each Gacha, tamed or bred, will only be able to produce 6 random resources from a large pool of potential resources, including many DLC-exclusive ones, making it a renewable source of materials that would otherwise be impossible to acquire naturally in some maps. Their production is always structured so that it can produce 3 'common' resources, 2 'uncommon' resources and 1 'rare' or 'very rare' resource as shown below, with each tier producing different quantities per crystal. Bred Gachas are not influenced by the possible resources of the parents. Via the selection wheel, survivors can select which of the available resources that their Gacha will produce (or to produce them randomly like wild Gachas). Cloning a Gacha will make an exact copy of the resources from the original. In addition, Gachas will sometimes produce 'loot' of varying qualities, which will be denoted by quality-colored crystals (white, green, deep blue, purple, etc).

  • Place resources within the Gacha's inventory and the Gacha will slowly consume them to produce Gacha Crystal Extinction Icon.png on their back.
  • Gachas have a 'Crafting Skill' stat that can be improved to increase the crafting speed and quality of loot.
  • Wander Enabled is NOT required for this feature.
  • After a time, these crystals will fall off and can be collected. A crystal sound effect can be heard over a fair distance when this happens.
  • Feeding the Gacha a Snow Owl Pellet Extinction Icon.png will provide a temporary buff that increases crafting speed, increases the quality of loot produced, and increases the quantity of resources gained by double on average.
  • Production is disabled when 'Sad', which occurs when they are nearby to another Gacha unless it is only nearby one other Gacha of the opposite gender. The multi-colored 'disco lights' that are usually present are, instead, dreary flecks of light and the Gacha's face is unhappy.
  • Sometimes the Gacha Crystals keep floating in mid-air. A Megatherium is ideal to still reach it; they are common in the Sanctuary, have a similar height to the Gacha, and the survivor can stand on its back to pick up the crystal.
  • Occasionally the Gacha Crystal contains a structure, armor piece or a weapon. For a complete list of possible items see Gacha Crystal Extinction Icon.png.

  • Electronics
  • Element Dust Extinction Icon.png
  • Fragmented Green Gem Extinction Icon.png
  • Metal
  • Scrap Metal Extinction Icon.png
  • Seeds

While slow, the Gacha has a high stamina and a high carry weight to move items from place to place. As they can be carried by Quetzal, they can also be used for long distance transport as an alternative for Delivery Crate Extinction Icon.png.

Poop Collector

The Gacha will automatically pick-up parcels that are dropped nearby, which can be enhanced with Enable Wandering to make them a roaming vacuum cleaner. This can be used to collect poop, which is one of the few resources that the Gacha will not eat. Be aware that Gachas can eat virtually everything, including weapons, blueprints and filled cryopods.

Dodatkowe informacje/Ciekawostki[]

  • This mechanic and the name Gacha are a reference to "gachapon", the Japanese toy machine in which after putting in money, a plastic egg pops out with a random collectible toy. The name is onomatopoeia of the sounds the machine makes ("Gacha " from turning the knob, "pon" from the capsule dropping down).
  • The Gacha's species name, "Macrodryadis crystallinus", means "Great dryad which crystallizes" in Latin.
  • The Gacha's diet is so varied, that is would probably be faster to compose a list of things they don't eat.
  • The Gacha has a happiness level that can be influenced by being near a mate. The Gacha experiences sadness when exposed to another of its kind that is of the same gender. Happiness level can be determined by the Gacha's facial expression.
