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

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) 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 up five times by killing certain predators while having the pet equipped. Each level up permanently increases the maximum level by 1 (up to 5 extra levels) of the survivor who's got the chibi equipped at the time of a level-up. The following creatures award Experience to the Chibi-Pets:

Received experience only scales with game-wide XP multipliers, and is not affected by the Explorer Notes buff.

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[]

Chibi-Pets may refer to:


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[]

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[]

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

ARK: Eggcellent Adventure[]

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[]

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[]

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

ARK: Fear Evolved[]

Random Chibi-Pets may either be found from remains of killed  Dodorex or  Dodo Wyvern, or crafted with 5 ×  Pumpkin, 5 ×  Scarecrow and 5 ×  Stolen Headstone in  Cooking Pot.

ARK: Turkey Trial[]

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.


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.


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.


Icons of all common Chibi-Pets have a green background. Chibi Shadowmane is not obtainable while Events.


Icons of all uncommon Chibi-Pets have a blue background.


Icons of all rare Chibi-Pets have a purple background.

Very Rare[]

Icons of all very rare Chibi-Pets have a yellow background.


Icons of all legendary Chibi-Pets have a Pink background. Chibi Noglin is not obtainable while Events.

DLC Requirements[]

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[]


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.


Genesis: Part 2[]


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.


  • 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 dinos.
  • Multiple Chibis can be leveled up, but will not extend the level cap past the 5 first levels.
  • If a survivor gets their first Chibi to level 4 (having their level cap increased by 4), and then finds another Chibi which they start to level up, the second Chibi (or any subsequent) will not increase the level cap until it reaches a level high enough to surpass player's bonus.
  • The  Chibi-Noglin (Genesis: Part 2) will not give a new pet for recycling in a forge.
