The Therizinosaurus (thair-uh-ZEEN-uh-SAWR-us) is one of the Dinosaurs 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
I’m not entirely sure how Therizinosaurus multiensis stays populated on the island. It is surprisingly slow for its size, and is a solitary creature (so no pack to back it up). I suppose the fact that its sheer power rivals Tyrannosaurus is the only thing that allows this very aggressive medium-sized herbivore to thrive on the island.
Domesticated
A tamed Therizinosaurus is one of the most versatile mounts a survivor can have. It can be trained to use its claws brutally or delicately, allowing the rider to primarily harvest the specific kinds of resource that he or she needs, with abnormally extreme efficiency. And in combat, these same claws can pierce straight through the toughest armor. This flexibility more than makes up for its inability to carry the large loads of the island's many herbivorous pack beasts.
Known Information
The claws of Therizinosaurus are some of the most versatile biological tools I’ve encountered, as adept at removing trees and foliage from Therizinosaurus’ path as they are at piercing the thick shells and hide of the island’s most defensive creatures if backed into a fight.
~ Helena

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

Therizinosaurus have been known to wander about alone but they have been seen to team up and wander in groups, ignoring most other creatures in the area. However, any predators or players that venture too close will immediately rouse its ire. If you see him, you'd better run away

Appearance[edit | edit source]

A Therizinosaurus is one of the strangest creatures a survivor will encounter on the island. Although it is built like a Tyrannosaurus or an Allosaurus, the creature is a herbivore, using its scythe-like claws to pull down leafy vegetation for consumption. The massive claws are just as efficient for slashing foes in combat though, intimidating all but the hungriest of predators. The beast is also covered in a thick covering of feathers much like its real life counterpart: Therizinosaurus cheloniformis.




Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Therizinosaurus's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Therizinosaurus. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Therizinosaurus 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 Therizinosaurus's "feathers" 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]

Therizinosaurus
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]

Since 253.3 the bug (Fertilized Megalosaurus Egg) is fixed and the Therizinosaurus prefers now Kibble.png Kibble (Megalosaurus Egg). Note, the kibble fills up 120 food per bite, not 80.

For a level-dependent count of resources needed, try an external taming calculator.

  • As Stimberries do not recover Food, the AI will detect that it is still hungry after eating and trigger a continuous cycle of consumption. Stimulants do not work nor will using Remote Use speed up the process. The Taming Effectiveness gained using Stimberries is exceptionally poor, due to the thousands required to tame. However, Stimberries that are consumed autonomously do not seem to affect Torpor, meaning it will not wake up any faster.
  • The -15 Food occurs over a digestion period, but does net an increase the rate that the Therizinosaurus starves. This can be used in conjunction with normal berries or advanced crops to substantially improve the taming time. However, it is worth stressing how little Taming Effectiveness will remain if Stimberries are used. (Taming speed is increased, and effectiveness is effectively 0 when using stimberries, but food no longer drops faster as of 253.5)
    • (As of 253.5 this no longer works) This loss can be counteracted by allowing the creature to wake up when it's close to 0 Food and then knock it out again, resetting its current Taming Affinity and Taming Effectiveness, but preserving its current Food. At this point, do not use Stimberries.

The rate that Taming Effectiveness decays is significantly lower than other herbivores, with a level 145 retaining 90% (+65 levels) when tamed using Advanced Crops). (Tested on Official PVP.)

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Therizinosaurus.

General[edit | edit source]

The Therizino is capable of dealing a large amount of DPS, and deals some torpor for each attack and has quite an effective attack range.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Therizinos are highly aggressive for Herbivores and will not hesitate to attack any players or tames that approach too closely. Keep in mind that although it isn't as flashy or impressive looking as a Rex, it is at least as powerful as a Spino and not to be taken lightly. It is not recommended to take a Therizino head on with a tame unless you are certain it can take a beating, and certainly don't attempt melee with one if unmounted as they are quite capable of shredding armour very quickly. Fast mounts, high perches and ranged weapons are the order of the day.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Shotgun works well if aimed at the head. Four rounds may down it from close range, depending on server settings, level, quality of gun, etc.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The Therizinosaurus' attacks are capable of damaging both mounts and their riders in a single swing whenever it randomly uses its bite attack - although the rider must still be in range of the attack. Approaching a therizinosaurus with shorter mounts is not advised as they can distribute Torpor to the rider of a mount when hit by the bite attack. Therizinosaurus can aggro on a player inside a house if they wander too close, potentially tearing down anything not made of metal, so it's best to monitor the location of any that wander nearby.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

It can't heal well like the Rex, unless using sweet vegetable cake. Attacking behind spikes with a pike can allow you to kill one on foot, as its head will pop over and they won't be able to hit you.

Roles[edit | edit source]

Herbivore Combat Mount
  • Each of the Therizino's attacks hits multiple times, meaning the effective DPS is much greater than one might assume from the information presented above (which is already high compared to other creatures).
  • The Therizino's sprint speed is comparable to the Giganotosaurs except the Therizino's endurance is top-notch, although its gait is much smaller.
Aquatic Utility
  • The Therizino's base movement speed in water is slightly fast, even without being able to sprint.
  • While it uses both Oxygen and Stamina to swim, and its stamina-endurance while swimming is poor (compared to sprinting on land, at least), it can often make desired swims in such speed its stamina isn't necessary.
  • With use of Stimulants or Recipes to regenerate Stamina, its exceptional base oxygen combined with affinity in Power Harvesting makes the Therizino the best Fish/Prime Meat gatherer in the game.
Meat and Wood Gatherer
  • The primary attack (Left Mousebutton) gathers Wood and Meat in exceptional quantities, as well as lesser (by comparison to C) amounts of Thatch and skins (Hide, Chitin, Silk etc).
    • The attack hits two times with a single click.
      • Each hit deals damage/gathers resources, capable of hitting the same target multiple times or multiple targets.
    • Can perform this attack while moving.
    • They gather Wood almost as efficiently as a Chainsaw, and more efficiently than any other tame.
    • Recommended Weight for Wood Gathering as the Therizino can easily reach maximum weight in seconds, and combat stats for Meat/Skinning.
    • This attack will also gather obscene quantities of Rare Mushrooms from the Trees within the Swamp.
    • This attack will destroy Cactus Trees on Scorched Earth, but gathers nothing from them.
Fiber Gatherer
  • The secondary attack (Right Mousebutton) functions as a sickle versus bush nodes, and gathers Fibre, Silk and Plant Y Seeds.
    • The attack hits three times with a single click, but takes a few seconds to perform.
    • Can perform this attack while moving.
  • This attack will also harvest from corpses, gathering the same amount of meat and hide as (Left Mousebutton), but requires multiple attacks to fully harvest the corpse.
    • It is not considered a sickle versus corpses (i.e. it will not gather prime fish from salmon).
  • On Scorched Earth, this attack also gathers Silk, Plant Y Seeds, Rare Mushrooms and Rare Flowers from Flower Nodes; and Cactus Sap from Cactus Bushes.
Berries/Seeds and Hide/Chitin/Silk Gatherer
  • The tertiary attack (C) gathers Berries from bush nodes and Hide/Chitin from corpses.
    • This attack hits once and can be performed while moving.
    • Other secondary resources, such as Pelt and Organic Polymer, are not gathered at all by this attack. When tested, Mammoths and Kairuku give a substantial amount of Hide.
  • On Scorched Earth this attack will also gather Cactus Sap from Cactus Bushes, but in an inferior quantity to the Left Mousebutton attack.
  • This attack can inflict torpor, directly hit the rider, and damage stone structures.
Automated Harvesting
  • The Therizinosaurus will use its Left Mousebutton and C attacks autonomously to harvest nearby valid nodes when not in-use by a player (mounted or set to follow). This can be combined with Wander Enabled to have the Therizinosaurus autonomously collect wood, berries and seeds for you.
Upgradeable Harvesting
  • In addition to bonus stats, each time you spend a skill point you will also gain the ability to apply "Harvesting Levels" via the Wheel Menu. The two options are: Delicate Harvesting and Power Harvesting.
    • Delicate: Improves the gathering from Bush/Flower Nodes (Right Mousebutton/C), Hide and Chitin (C) and Organic Polymer (Right Mousebutton).
    • Power: Improves the gathering from Trees (Left Mousebutton) and Corpses (Left Mousebutton/Right Mousebutton), but is surpassed by Delicate for Hide and Chitin in particular. Trees includes Wood, Thatch and Rare Mushrooms.
    • Pelt does not appear to be gathered in any noteworthy quantity by any attack with any upgrade investment.
  • The following table was populated using information from a level 150 that was GMSummoned in single player, and given maximum experience. All skill points were expended in Oxygen, to avoid contaminating the results. Level 5 Diplodocuses were spawned in to test meat/hide; Scorpions for Chitin and Kairuku for Organic Polymer.

Cactus Sap Right Mousebutton 60 60 250
Corpse Silk Left Mousebutton 40 40 120
Flower Silk Right Mousebutton 40 120 40
  • The Power Therizino when tested against a level 5 Squid gathered so much Fish, Prime Fish and Keratin to reach the stack limit within its inventory, at ~3000 Fish, ~300 Prime Fish and ~750 Keratin, compared to the Delicate's ~400 Fish, ~60 Prime Fish and ~300 Keratin. A similarly levelled Allosaurus gathered twice as much as a Delicate Therizino, implying the squid itself provides an unusually high amount of resources before factoring the Power Therizino's multiplier.

The following represents the creature's innate affinity for harvesting quantity compared to the other tools/creatures:

Resource Efficiency
Wood.png Wood ★★★★★
Chitin.png Chitin ★★★★★
Rare Flower.png Rare Flower ★★★★★
Keratin.png Keratin ★★★★★
Hide.png Hide ★★★★★
Silk (Scorched Earth).png Silk ★★★★★

These already-good ratings can be improved further with the Harvesting Levels. With 65 bonus levels, one can get up to 4.25x gathering (325% bonus).

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • Therizinosaurus was first revealed by Drake on 06/27/2015 [2]
  • The dossier was revealed on 09/07/2015 [3]
  • Be careful when having a tamed Therizinosaurus follow you around. If it hits a tree as a response to an attack and it has a lot of points in Power Harvesting it can unintentionally encumber itself from the sheer amounts of wood it can acquire. This can leave a dismounted survivor vulnerable or cause an unwary survivor leading a large pack of dinosaurs to mistakenly leave it behind. As of v254.0 this issue can be rectified by disabling resource gathering on the Therizinosaurus.
  • The Therizinosaurus drops torpor extremely quickly--be prepared with plenty of narcotics/berries and a safe taming area, when attempting to tame this dinosaur.
  • Some carnivores that are smaller than the Therizinosaurus appear to ignore it when mounted by a player (such as raptors/carnos).
