Chibi-Pets are a type of Item added in ARK: Winter Wonderland 4, appearing in other Events since.

Overview[edit | edit source]

These miniature pets are primarily a cosmetic item, except for leveling as discussed below, equipped by the survivor in the off-hand slot. When equipped, the chibi-pet appears in front and to the left of the survivor. Moving around causes the pet to follow and reposition itself where the survivor is facing. The chibi-pets are seen in the survivor's lap while riding mounts, and sit nearby while in a bed. Note that for the Tek Sleeping Pod Aberration Icon.png the pets still follow the position, except facing upwards at the survivor's right, since survivors sleep on their backs in the pods instead of on their sides.

Chibi-Pets can be leveled by killing certain predators while having the pet equipped. They can be leveled five times, and each level-up of the pet boosts the survivor's maximum level by 1, up to +5 survivor max level. This is similar to the bonus max levels from Ascension. The following creatures award Experience to the Chibi-Pets:

Chibi-Pets are items and will not appear in your inventory after you die. They will be left in the corpse or bag where you died. An exception to this is the Chibi-Noglin, which will always appear in your inventory upon respawn as long as you own the Genesis Season Pass. Keep in mind, however, that this new Chibi is just that: new. It will be at level one, with no experience.

List of Chibi-Pets[edit | edit source]

Chibi-Pets may refer to:

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

These ways of obtaining are generalized according to their main event. Years may differ, but their method of obtaining are generally the same.

ARK: Winter Wonderland[edit | edit source]

Most chibis can only be found from Presents dropped by Raptor Claus, or from the regular Gacha Crystals dropped by GachaClaus. Specific type of Chibis can only be obtained from either of the two.

ARK: Love Evolved[edit | edit source]

Most chibis may be obtained while fishing for Coelacanth with an amorous (heart) effect with only Fishing Rod. Fish Net Genesis Part 1 Icon.png does not yield any chance of a chibi.

ARK: Eggcellent Adventure[edit | edit source]

Eggs from wild bunny Dodos can be placed and cracked. Cracking an egg has a 20% chance to drop a Chibi-Pet. This can only happen during the event and eggs saved for when the event is over will not have this option.

ARK: 5th Anniversary[edit | edit source]

Cakes found from harvesting from dead Party Dodo can be used in a Cooking Pot as a recipe for crafting random Chibi-Pets.

ARK: Summer Bash[edit | edit source]

Random Chibi-Pets may be crafted in a Cooking Pot from 10 Prime Meat Jerky.

ARK: Fear Evolved[edit | edit source]

Random Chibi-Pets may either be found from remains of killed Dodorex or Dodo Wyvern, or crafted with 5 Pumpkin.

ARK: Turkey Trial[edit | edit source]

A random Chibi-Pet can be crafted from a single Wishbone inside a Cooking Pot. Alternatively, the player can craft a guaranteed rare or better Chibi-Pet from 5 ×  Wishbone.

Recycling[edit | edit source]

4 Chibi-Pets can be smelted in a Refining Forge to craft 1 random Chibi-Pet. Rarity are random, and does not account for what rarity of chibis are being smelted.

Rarity[edit | edit source]

When obtaining a chibi, you have roughly an 89% chance of receiving a chibi from the common list, a 10% chance of receiving a chibi from the uncommon list, 0.4% chance for one from the rare list, 0.1% chance from the very rare list, and a 0.09% chance of receiving a chibi from the legendary list.

Since the start of ARK: 5th Anniversary, colors of Chibi-Pet icons are denoted by their rarity, similar to Supply Crates.

  • All Chibi-Pets color here are denoted as Green.

DLC Requirements[edit | edit source]

Some Chibi requires paid DLC installed to be used. This excludes Genesis: Part 1 Chibis or Chibis related to creature exclusive to free DLC maps.

Scorched Earth[edit | edit source]

Aberration[edit | edit source]

Chibi-Light Pets emit radial charge light in an area much smaller than their regular counterparts. Moreover, these are for visual aesthetic, and does not affect charge-weakened creatures like Reaper and Nameless.

Extinction[edit | edit source]

Genesis: Part 2[edit | edit source]

Re-spawning[edit | edit source]

4 chibi pets can be sacrificed in a stone forge (not an industrial forge) to get 1 new random chibi. This can be used to try to obtain rare chibis.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Chibi are considered super-deformed versions of the original, hence why almost all of the chibis here have a large head with small body. [1] The only exceptions are Chibi-Dodo and Chibi-Pulmonoscorpius, whose head:body ratio is unchanged.
  • Originally, when the survivor was sitting on a mount, the chibi-pet was not visible, as it was inside the mount.
  • There is an occasional issue that results in all chibi experience being lost, however the levels gained will remain.
  • Pair-o-Saurs chibi currently has a dino icon that does not exist in any of the known, or upcoming, dino.
