The Liopleurodon (Lie-oh-ploor-oh-don) is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

NoteHelena.png
Wild
Liopleurodon Magicus is a mid-sized ocean predator. Typically between 20 and 25 feet long, it mostly hides within the reefs, waiting to ambush prey that swims by. Due to its low acceleration and medium speed, Liopleurodon tends not to chase prey that escape its initial devastating chomp attack.
Domesticated
Neither the fastest swimmer, nor the most powerful ocean predator, Liopleurodon still has its uses for those wanting to stay underwater for extended periods of time. Many tribes use Liopleurodon for long duration oil-and-oyster harvesting trips. Often, those who don't believe in the Liopleurodons' qualities are shunned.
Known Information
The species on the island almost seem to be magical. The reptile's skin secretes an oil that, when absorbed through the skin contact makes the rider process oxygen more efficiently for extreme diving. When trawling the ocean for resources, Liopleurodon will show you the way.
~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

As it says in the dossier "it mostly hides within the reefs, waiting to ambush prey that swims by." The Liopleurodon swims around until attacked by a player or creature, at which point it will spin around and vanish, never to be seen again.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Liopleurodon appears as a crocodile-like reptile, with two sets of fins and a short tail. It is a pliosaur, a short-necked, large-headed type of Plesiosaur, making it closely related to the deep water Plesiosaurs. It also possesses a single long barbel on its chin to detect the presence of prey swimming past its ambush lair.




Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Liopleurodon's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Liopleurodon. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Liopleurodon will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Liopleurodon's "face, sides, and flipper highlights" magenta.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]

The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.

Taming[edit | edit source]

The Liopleurodon is a passive tame. It only eats Giant Bee Honey. It is a temporary tame, it will stay tamed for 30 minutes. At the end of the 30 minutes, the Liopleurodon disappears.

On The Center the Liopleurodon has been found in the deepest parts of the trench.

Note that the values are for optimal cases, always bring extra supplies!
For a level-dependent count of resources needed, try an external taming calculator.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Liopleurodon.

General[edit | edit source]

The Liopleurodon is a passive creature and will not attack you.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Anything but as soon as it receives damage the Liopleurodon will teleport away.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The Liopleurodon itself doesn't impose any danger. However, the surrounding water could be inhabited by predators.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Low speed and turning radius. It is not meant for battle.

Utility[edit | edit source]

  • Loot Booster: Riding a Liopleurodon increases the rarity and value of any lootbox you open (Deep Sea Loot Crates and underwater Beacons). This effect lasts 30 minutes, then, the Liopleurodon will disappear.
    • Testing has shown that a lootbox that usually contains hide clothes contained a Rocket Launcher during the loot buff.

Spotlight[edit | edit source]

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Liopleurodon, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • The Dossier was revealed on 17. July 2015 [2]\
  • The name and elements of the Dossier, such as 'The species on the island almost seem to be magical', Liopleurodon will show you the way' and 'those who don't believe in the Liopleurodons' qualities are shunned' are most likely references to the popular viral video 'Charlie the Unicorn', which features a magical Liopleurodon that guides the way.[3]
  • Liopleurodon means "smooth sided tooth".
  • Currently, Liopleurodon does not give you an oxygen buff, contrary to the dossier.
  • Like Basilosaurus, Liopleurodon is immune to being stunned by Cnidaria.
