The Bulbdog (originally named Lantern Pug) is one of the Creatures in the Aberration-DLC of 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

Microluminis Globulus is best described as a slobbering, roly-poly ball of affection. Just like its kin, it is completely harmless, despite its pronounced fangs. So if a survivor sees one running towards them, they should prepare to be licked, not bitten.

Unfortunately, being so ugly that you're cute is not an effective means of self-defense, which lands it near the bottom of the food chain. Its Charge Light may intimidate some predators, but its attracts just as many.

Domesticated

While Microluminis Globus has skin reminiscent of lizards or amphibians, its behavior is incredibly similar to a common canine. This has made it a particularly popular choice as a companion and source of Charge Light, but remember - whatever shoulder you rest it on will be covered in drool within minutes.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

From what the trailer shows, "friendly and cuddly" .

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Bulbdog looks like a frog with an anglerfish lure. The face resembles that of a pug.

Drops[edit | edit source]



Base Stats and Growth[edit | edit source]

Note that creatures will have different stats in Survival of the Fittest

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.

Combat[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

(Uses light to attract other creatures then eats them in whole[bulb consumation])

Dangers[edit | edit source]

Like other Charge light-giving dino, Bulbdog does not fight back when hurt, and only runs off. However, its charge light might attract other predators such as Raptor.png Raptor and Ravager.png Ravager towards itself.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Taming[edit | edit source]

The Bulbdog is unable to be tamed through the standard tranquilize-and-feed methods, and must be tamed non-violently.

To feed it, place raw meat on the last slot of your hotbar, then when approached press use (default E, Xbox: Y, PS4: Triangle) to feed it. You cannot feed them all the meat required for taming at one time, you must wait every couple of minutes until it is hungry again to feed it more until its taming meter is filled.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Like other Charge Light dino, Bulbdog carries itself "Charge Light", which replenishes over time whilst turned off. It provides players with "Charge", protecting from Nameless pack ambush. If set to active, it can also detect enemy players nearby, and/or highest/maximum level dino.

Due to the nature of its passive state, Bulbdog cannot fight back, and should never be used as combat dino.

It carries the most charged light capacity with the lowest recharge rate.

Roles[edit | edit source]

Anti-Nameless Ambush: Since Bulbdog can be shoulder-mounted like every other Charge Light, it provides a charge to prevent Nameless pack from emerging. This however, will attract Seeker.png Seeker.

Dung Provider: Bulbdog defecates often, especially when attempting to tame it, making it a useful source of dung for Dung Beetle.png Dung Beetle.
