Basic Info[edit | edit source]
Dossier[edit | edit source]
Cnidaria omnimorph is another example of a creature which should not exist. It has traits that seem derived from many types of jellyfish. It possesses the size and shape of large egg-yolk jellies, the powerful sting of certain box jellies, and the bioluminescence of deep-sea jellies. This all combines to make a dangerous creature that lights up the deepest reaches of the ocean.
Cnidaria is not generally aggressive, because it lacks normal perceptive senses. It generally just floats along on the current until something gets close enough to sense, at which point it attacks. While its attacks are not directly powerful, its sting injects an incredibly strong and fast-acting sedative.
As Cnidaria is barely more intelligent than a plant, there's no effective method to tame one.
Most tribes kill Cnidaria on sight, then collect its reserve of powerful sedative, to use in technically advanced long-distance tranquilizers.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Cnidaria is an aggressive creature, pursuing survivors at a slow pace. Its attacks include torpor inducing stings and knocking riders off of their mounts, however it has low health and can be killed easily. This makes the Cnidaria a common aquatic pest.
Appearance[edit | edit source]Cnidaria Omnimorph is a relatively large jellyfish compared to a human, with long trailing tentacles packed with venom to sedate both prey and predators.
Color Scheme and Regions
The Cnidaria always spawns with the same color scheme and has no color regions.
This means it is currently impossible to make alterations to the Cnidaria's natural spawn colors.
Drops[edit | edit source]
Base Stats and Growth[edit | edit source]
Note that creatures will have different stats in Survival of the Fittest
|Attribute||Amount at Level 1||Increase per point||Taming Bonus|
1Percentages are based on the value of the stat the moment the creature was tamed (after taming effectiveness)
2The absolute Base Damage is shown here instead of the percentage.
3Wild creatures do not level up movement speed
4Torpor increases every level on wild creatures, but can not be increased once they are tamed.
5The Cnidaria is incapable of drowning.

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.
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]
This section describes how to fight against the Cnidaria.
General[edit | edit source]
They are aggressive and have a small aggro radius, but you should avoid contact at all cost.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Use their low speed to your advantage just stay far away and shoot them with a crossbow as they close in.
Weaponry[edit | edit source]
Crossbow will do the work. As they will kick riders off their mounts, it is not recommended to attack them with a dino.
If you are careful and don't approach too closely, a Tusoteuthis can effectively wipe out and harvest clusters of Cnidaria in a swift motion with its primary attack's large range and AOE.
A Mosasaur can also take on clusters of Cnidaria in a similar fashion as the Tusoteuthis, though with a slightly greater risk, as the Mosasaurs attack has less range and AOE, forcing you to get closer.
A Basilosaurus is effective against groups of Cnidaria as it is immune to the poison effect.
Dangers[edit | edit source]
They will immobilize their prey on contact, damaging health at an alarming rate. While the player can fight back with a crossbow or a melee weapon, a mount will not be able to fight back and its rider will be kicked.
It is possible to free your mount from their grasp by taking the aggro.
Weakness[edit | edit source]
Really slow, low health pool.
Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]
For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Cnidaria, see the relevant Wikipedia article
- Dino Dossier was revealed on 09/30/15 on Steam.
- Cnidaria is actually the name of the phylum containing all jellyfish - plus corals, anemones, and others.
- Cnidaria's genus name comes from the Greek word 'knide,' meaning 'knettle.' Its species name consists of the words 'omni,' meaning 'all' or 'of every kind;' and 'multi,' meaning 'more than one.' This refers to the fact that it resembles many different species of jellyfish rather than just one kind.
- The dossier states that Cnidaria could be harvested and used for "technically advanced long-distance tranquilizers", referring to the Shocking Tranquilizer Dart you are able to craft from the Bio Toxin dropped by Cnidaria.
- v253.9 brought the Cnidaria to The Center map.
