The Super Turkey is a wild bird that is only available during ARK: Turkey Trial. Harvesting Wishbone.png Wishbone from turkeys allow players to craft a Chieftain Hat, "Turkey" Emote, or summon the DodoRex.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Super Turkeys wander around aimlessly, similar to Dodos and often mixing with groups of them. Attacking a Super Turkey will cause it to fight back, and any nearby wild creatures will attack or flee, depending on their temperament.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Super Turkeys look like modern day turkeys, but are extremely powerful. Don't be fooled about their appearance! They can kill you easily! They have extremely high defense so make sure to bring extra help in the form of a flying creature, giga, or friends.

Color Scheme and Regions

Wing tips are not visible while the turkey is standing.


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

Drops[edit | edit source]

Note: The Wishbone can be obtained from the turkey's death item cache on the ground where it dies if the corpse is harvested. Otherwise you can access its inventory in order to get it.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Turkey.

General[edit | edit source]

Don't mistake a turkey for its size. Even Rexes above Level 200 are unable to take down this tiny beast. They are extremely fast in water.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The best way to kill a turkey is with a Giganotosaurus. They will kill them in seconds with 3-5 bites (more depending on the level of the Turkey and Giga.) The Giga has a knock back effect with its attack, so you should be able to kill the Turkey without taking too much, if any, damage if you are in a safe place and you time your attacks right. Another method is to use a mantis with graded melee weapons, which do not have the dinosaur damage debuff, allowing for faster kills.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Guns. Nail it with an Assault Rifle or a Simple Pistol. Any other gun would not do enough damage. If you are on Scorched Earth, use fire arrows.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The turkey will not stop pursuing you after you attack it. Chitin armor or better is recommended. If attacked, other damage-capable creatures will also attack you.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

The turkey cannot damage stone so you can attack it from on top of a stone pillar and render it incapable of damaging you. Or shoot it with a ranged weapon from a safe spot, e.g. from a Quetzal platform saddle. And although they are fast in water, they cannot attack while in water, allowing for you to either retreat or kite it and kill it without taking much damage (although its hard to hit due to its swim speed) If you are able to get one into the water the Dunkleosteus also seems to lack the damage debuff.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • Super Turkey takes heavily reduced damage from Dinos. Using human weapons or tools is recommended for an easier kill.
  • Southern Islets spawn is specifically near the lower-south cave.
  • Strangely enough, if the DoTame command is used, Super Turkeys can be tamed. Since DoTame normally only works on tameable animals, this might be a bug if it shares files or coding with the Dodo.
  • During the first edition of Turkey Trial, turkeys were extremely slow and easily outrunned with base Movement Speed only.
