There are many types of Creatures in Apex Legends. Some can be met and interacted with while in-game while some serve as a way to flesh out the game's lore.
Flyers, scientific name Volaticus locustodraco, are dragon-like creatures flying or nesting around Kings Canyon. Along with the Prowler, it is considered an invasive species on planets where they are located, with their homeworld being Leviathan, they can be found on Solace, Typhon, and multiple other unnamed planets.
Added into the game in the weeks leading up to Season 2, they hover or nest around certain spots in the map and when shot drops a death box of a player from the shooter's friends list with Rare or Epic or Legendary loot. They do not attack when shot but they can be killed.
Leviathans are giant 400-meter tall creatures that hail from the eponymous planet of Leviathan.
Although classified as omnivores by the IMC's Animal & Wildlife Research Division, they mainly consume fruits and vegetables as their primary diet. They are hardly aggressive; considered only dangerous when near highly populated areas due to the overwhelming power of their movements. To protect research facilities, cities, and colonies near Leviathan territories, the IMC developed Repulsor Towers (Dog-whistle towers) to emit high-frequency sounds that only Leviathans could hear, which kept the creatures at a safe distance.
A pair of Leviathans, named Lola and Rosie, are currently located offshore from Kings Canyon. From Season 2 until Season 5 they were located inside the arena, standing in the destroyed remnants of Cascades and Bridges in Kings Canyon. They were essentially harmless, but you had to watch out for their feet, as you only have a small amount of time between when they pick them up and they put them back down again.
Bin Spiders are an arachnoid like creature that hide in Supply Bins during the Shadowfall and Shadow Royale game modes. They will hide in Supply Bins and when killed, drop supplies. They can also be pinged by Legends for unique quotes.
Bin spiders are most likely native to Solace, as they are only seen in Kings canyon.
It is believed that the IMC unknowingly transported Prowler eggs across the Frontier. They have become so common across the various planets due to this, becoming an invasive species and outcompeting many native lifeforms on their respective planets, causing permanent ecological damage.
They were first seen in-game as part of Bloodhound's Trials on World's Edge. They were contained in this arena-like pit as part of the eponymous trials as to help with thinning down the population of Prowlers after a sudden increase in their numbers. They were also fought in some of the Hunts.
Creatures in Lore
Goliaths are, true to their name, huge, horned creatures believed to be native to the planet Leviathan, although they have currently only been seen on Talos. Their appearance is very menacing, towering over most humans, they seem to have an almost Gorilla like body structure, but are much larger than earth gorillas. They have two yellow eyes on each side of their face, with its nose seeming to have multiple nostrils, and have multiple sharp teeth, as well as a horn on its nose, and two others on each side of its head. Goliath behavior is peculiar, as they seem to be solitary creatures, and will try and find places to live in, like caves or even artificial structures, like abandoned tunnels.
The carthage spider, scientific name Scarabaeidae aracnia is a type of Mammoth-class spider generally found in the Amelia Mountain Range on the planet Gaea.
When in danger or when hunting, the spider releases an extremely toxic gas that can kill people in seconds, with the gas's composition being very similar Caustic’s Nox Gas. Due to the classification, the spider seems to be very large in appearence, and could be an apex predator on its home planet Gaea.
- If the shooter has no one on their Friends List, a Dev's box will be shown on the deathbox that comes down after shooting a Flyer.
