The Therizinosaur (thair-uh-ZEEN-uh-SAWR) is one of the Dinosaurs in ARK: Survival Evolved. They are the namesake for a distinct group of herbivorous or omnivorous therapod dinosaur and lived in Mongolia during the Cretaceous period. In game, they are portrayed as territoriality aggressive and can be common at beaches and in jungles.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

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

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 predator (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 predator to thrive.

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.

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 with enhanced efficiency the specific kinds of resources that he or she needs. 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 beasts of burden.

~ Helena

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

The first sentences of the Dossier and its relatively non-threatening appearance may mislead new players to believe they’re harmless if they haven’t yet had a bad encounter with one. Unlike pure carnivores, Therizino will typically wander around peacefully and rarely attack unprovoked, only becoming aggressive when they’re attacked, or a player/ tame comes almost within touching distance. However, when upset it transforms into one of the deadliest killers in the game. They almost never give up pursuing a target once triggered, and can take down even advanced players, tames and bases. Stone walls will not protect you!

Therizinosaurus can be found wandering around alone, though it is not uncommon to see them in small groups of 2 or 3. Whilst they tend to ignore other creatures in the area, any predators, players or tamed creatures that venture too close will invoke an aggressive response. Caution is strongly advised!

Appearance[edit | edit source]

A Therizinosaurus is one of the strongest creatures a survivor will encounter on the island. It is just as powerful and dangerous as the Rex and Spino. Although it is built like a Tyrannosaurus or an Allosaurus, and despite the dossier calling it a predator, 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[edit | edit source]




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

This information can be used to alter the Therizinosaur's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Therizinosaur'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]

Therizinosaur

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 v290.1, the Therizinosaur prefers Exceptional Kibble. Note the kibble fills up 80 food per bite.

  • 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.)


K.O Strategy[edit | edit source]

The biggest difficulty in taming a Therizinosaurus is the sheer power for which survivors crave them. They're territorial and capable of dealing high damage in a few short blows, meaning certain death for any mount that isn't leveled enough. They also deal damage to humans on the mount and can effortlessly knock out the rider. Naturally the best strategy is to find a tall rock or small cliff to attack from, and it must be steep since this animal can cross a lot of difficult terrain. You'll need a fast moving mount, preferably Procoptodon, Beelzebufo, or Utahraptor to evade attacks. Since Therizinosaurus is a prey animal, you'll find it best to kite it into a trap or tame one close to the beach where you can defend it from predators. A low level won't take a lot of arrows to knock out but you'll have to keep steady pace since they'll run when torpor gets too high. You may want to carry spike walls to protect the target from nearby Raptors, Dilophosaurus, or more dangerous predators depending on where you knock one out. Taming them takes a great while so kibble and soothing balm(Mobile) will speed up the process. Their torpor also depletes incredibly fast and they could wake up if you're distracted for too long, so carrying at least 100 biotoxin or a few hundred narcotics will keep them asleep. Once they're awake, you don't have to worry about the Therizinosaurus being killed, since they're one of the strongest herbivores in the game.

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, its power rivals it. Therizinosaurs are much more powerful than an Allosaurus 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 recommended.

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 attack 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.

It's worth noting that due to the shared torpor effect, the Therizinosaurus can knock a player off their mount unconscious.

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. Also, it seems to have a fear of deep water - even if you are shooting it it won’t enter it. Obviously a crossbow or raft is required if you can’t shoot it from the other side of a lake.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

  • Harvester: While some specialist harvesters such as the Castoroides can collect and carry far more of their favored material, thanks to their weight reduction, not a single creature even comes close to the sheer volume and wide variety of items the Therizinosaur is capable of gathering. With the exceptions of Stone, Flint, Metal, Crystal, Obsidian, Gems, Silica Pearls, Element Ore, and a few others; the Therizinosaur is capable of harvesting anything, and although it does not possess any weight reduction for the materials it gathers, it is very often able to outpace its competitors through superior speed and agility, putting them to shame. Another thing that puts the Therizinosaur ahead of the competition is its ability to focus specifically on what kind of materials it wants to collect, through three different types of attacks: a power attack and a delicate attack with its claws, and a bite attack. Similar to the Moschops, a Therizinosaur gains access to harvesting level points each time it levels up, separate from its primary level points. These can be spent to increase the efficiency in which the Therizinosaur gathers materials with its claws, dependent on either its power attack, or delicate attack: up to 88 points and a maximum of 165.7% in one category. Additionally, just like the Moschops, it is an Autonomous Harvester; allowing you to set it on Wander and leave it alone to collect materials by itself. Through its ability to harvest nearly anything with extreme efficiency, the Therizinosaur makes an invaluable companion for anything that requires what it can gather; whether it be feeding yourself or your tames, or collecting crafting materials. (Level Weight and Melee Damage).
  • Combat Specialist: The Therizinosaur can be built for more than just harvesting materials; despite being an herbivore with a seemingly docile behavior and appearance, it is still a theropod, and like its cousin the Rex: it is capable of dishing out some serious damage, and with a similarly high health pool, tank damage as well. Its base damage of 52, while not quite as powerful compared to a Rex or a Spino, is still near to their damage ouput; and is quite impressive for an herbivore: only outshined among its kind by the Mammoth's stomp attack, and the Brontosaurus and Titanosaur. Compared to the Rex and Spino, however, the rate at which it is able to attack is slightly faster; allowing it to, potentially, have a higher DPS over a prolonged engagement. Finally, it has and edge that its purely carnivorous cousins do not have access to: Sweet Vegetable Cake. The cake, which can be consumed once every 30 seconds, restores up to 10% of an herbivore tame's health during that 30 second period, and will automatically be consumed if it is in the tame's inventory while the animal is below 85% health. This ability to quickly restore health with the cake, if you have the resources to bake them, makes Therizinosaurs ideal for killing bosses, particularly the Dragon, especially if the cake is supplemented with a Daeodon's AoE healing effect and the courage roar of a Yutyrannus. For this role: level primarily Health and Melee Damage.
  • Travel Mount: While not particularly fast compared to some other creatures, the Therizinosaur is considered a large-class creature, and is only bothered by a select few wild animals: e.g. anything that will leave a tamed Rex alone will also leave a Therizino alone. This makes traveling through hazardous areas, especially if you plan to harvest materials in those places, a much safer endeavor. For this role: level primarily Stamina and Movement Speed, and add Weight as required.

Notes[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Therizinosaur, 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.
  • Some carnivores that are smaller than the Therizinosaurus appear to ignore it when mounted by a player (such as Raptors/ Carnos).
  • Compared to other "Tranq and Tame" creatures that have a kibble, the Therizinosaurus is among the top of the list for taking the longest to tame. Due to their fast torpor drop and the longevity of the tame, this can make domesticating one a daunting task. However, the Therizino is very adaptable when it comes to harvesting resources. Since it's also a very powerful battle mount, these qualities mean that having just a few at your disposal can remove the need for several other dinos to be cared for.
  • Therizinosaurus multiensis roughly translates into "Multiple-Sword Reaping Lizard".
  • Majority of players refers the Therizinosaurus informally as "Tickle Monster", "Tickle Chicken", "Fear Turkey", "Danger Floof", "Longclaws", "Therizino", Scissors, Murder Chicken, or "Sid" (Referencing the Sloth character in the film Ice Age). However, there are other "slothlike" creatures in Ark, so therefore the nickname is misleading.
  • Despite the dossier stating the Therizinosaurus as 'Aggressive', the in-game creature is actually 'Territorial' and will only attack the player if they get too close.
  • The dossier mistakenly calls it a “predator”. It is thought to be an herbivore or an insectivore instead.
  • You can now get pretty close to a Therizinosaurus before it aggros on you, like with the Argentavis.
  • The face of the Therizinosaurus was changed to have a beak rather than a mouth.
  • On ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile, Therizinosaurus will be targeted by every predator making taming them much more difficult.
