The Stimberry is one of the Berries Berries in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be found by harvesting flora around the island.

Upon consumption, the Stimberry restores 10.0 points of Torpidity Torpidity and 5 points of Stamina Stamina. This can be useful to stop you from passing out after eating Narcoberry Narcoberries or being poisoned when fighting a Scorpion. Eating Stimberries can also be used to counteract the effects of Tranquilizer Arrows in PVP combat.

Stimberries also drain Water Water by 10.0 points, so they quickly dehydrate the player if eaten in large quantities. Eating these in a large quantity when hungry is only recommended when near a water source. They also provide 1.5 points in Food Food.

The Stimberry can be used together with Sparkpowder in the Mortar and Pestle to create Stimulant Stimulant.

Stimberries are also used to craft several Blue Coloring Dyes.


It is not advised to use Stimberries for taming. Although they can be eaten constantly, without the need to wait that the food stat drops, their affinity gain is much lower than other berries, let alone Kibble. The result is a massive drop of effectiveness (i.e. bonus levels) and a very high consumption of Stimberries.

If they are force-fed to an unconscious creature, they reduce the creature's Torpidity, which makes it wake up earlier. this can be used in an usually futile attempt to wake up a creature should they be submerged underwater or even damaged during the taming process.


  • If you force feed a tamed creature Stimberries its Food points will be reduced by 15, or 90 for a Giganotosaurus. This can be used to create large amounts of Feces on demand and is especially effective with the Phiomia, which produces large amounts of Medium feces, and the Dodo which produces a large amount of Small feces and has a 13% chance to produce a Dodo Egg instead of feces.
  • Stimberries will save survivors in early game against torpor attack(e.g. Troodon Troodon) or chasing(provided the survivor runs faster than the predator) by holding the torpor and providing infinite stamina to run. It is wise to keep it on hotbar.
