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.
In-Game Creatures[edit | edit source]
Flyers[edit | edit source]
Flyers, scientific name Volaticus locustodraco, are the dragon-like creatures flying or nesting around Kings Canyon, along multiple other planets in the frontier, considered an Invasive species like the prowler. They were 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 (If the shooter has no friends, a Dev's box will be shown) with Rare or Epic or Legendary loot. They do not attack when shot but they can be killed.
Leviathans[edit | edit source]
|“||Native to the Frontier, Leviathans roam the majority of planets that contain rich vegetation. Although classified as omnivores by the IMC's Animal & Wildlife Research Division, these 400-meter tall creatures mainly consume fruits and vegetables as their primary diet. The majestic Leviathan may seem intimidating due to its gigantic size, but 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. However, if a tower were to fall, please evacuate quickly - your life may depend on it.|
Leviathans hail from the eponymous planet of Leviathan. It is belived that there is only one species of Leviathan, but in numerous concept arts and games, you can see multiple different phenotypes of Leviathan. In apex legends, A pair of Leviathans are located offshore from Kings Canyon, though 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[edit | edit source]
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.
Prowlers[edit | edit source]
Prowlers are medium-sized, lion-like creatures found on various planets throughout the Frontier and the Outlands. Their native planet is Leviathan. Because prowlers are so common across the Frontier, it is belived that the IMC unknowingly transported prowler eggs across the frontier, with the prowlers becoming invasive species and outcompeting many native lifeforms on their respective planets, causing permanent ecological damage on each planet the prowlers are found on. On Talos, the population of Prowlers exploded on World's Edge after the Syndicate cleared out the bigger predators once roaming the area.
Prowlers also make a small appearance in the Season 8 Comic, Armageddon.
Creatures in Lore[edit | edit source]
Goliath[edit | edit source]
Goliaths are, true to their name, huge, horned creatures currently only seen on Talos. It is believed that their homeworld is Leviathan, like many creatures seen in apex legends and other media.
Scarabaeidae Arachnia[edit | edit source]
Scarabaeidae Aracnia is a type of 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.
Solace fish[edit | edit source]
Solace fish are 6 different species of fish-like creatures, all supposedly being native to solace. All of the fish are only seen on two banner frames, with the player never being able to see them in game, with one being a Gibraltar banner frame 'Catch of the day' which this banner frame contains 4 of the 6 fish, and the Wattson banner frame, 'Electric feels', containing the other 2. In the girbaltar banner the first fish, a large fish resembling a grouper, with a large body, that seems to only be about a third of the whole body, with the end of the fish having a long tailfin. The fish has six, yellow eyes, three on each side of the face, and seems to not have any pupil or iris. The eyes are clustered in a triangular shape, with them being near the side of the fish's head. Other distinction is a small fin on each side of its body, two protruding 'nostrils, and at least two rows of large, razor-like teeth. The second fish is a slender, silver colored fish that looks strikingly similar to earths swordfish, with a large dorsal fin on the top of its body, and two large fins with one on each side. The fish also has the same eye configuration as the grouper fish, but with one eye in each set being much larger than the other two, as well as those larger eyes being closer to the front of the face. The fish also has a set of small, roundish teeth, used for probably eating smaller fish. The third fish is in the back of the frame, resembling a small fish, but with a jaw similar to the gharial, or a beak of a toucan on earth. the fish seems to be a flat, with a set of fins on each side of its body. The final fish has a very similar body to the anglerfish on earth, with the bulb on its head used for the same thing the anglerfish use it for.
Wattson's banner has two 'fish'. Both of them look very similar to eels from earth, but have silver coloration instead of the multiple colors eels use, and most likely have electric abilities like the electric eel. The first eel has a flat face, with a jaw that resembles the sea lampreys jaw, with multiple rows of teeth and 5 eyes on each side of its body, all with reddish pupils. Like the swordfish creature, the eel has two major eyes, with both of them being larger than the rest of the eyes. if the images are to scale, the eel could be multiple meters long, easily being longer/taller than the average human. The second eel has a much longer face, with a set of long needle-like teeth, with two sets of five small eyes, with three of each set being in a similar formation as the grouper and the swordfish, centered near the front of the face; with two eyes being slightly larger than the other eye, the other two eyes are on the sides of its face. The eel would be several meters long as well, being a similar size to the first eel.
