The Orca (rarely referred to as Killer Whale, in-game id: killerwhale) is a tier 10 animal. It is based on its real life counterpart, Orcinus orca.

Buffs[ | ]

Sadly Orca has no buff. :( Womp

Mechanics[ | ]

  • Dolphins evolve into orcas
    • 48,000 XP is required for a dolphin to evolve into an orca
  • Orcas do not evolve into any other animals, as they are tier 10s
  • Orcas drop meat upon death
  • As a tier 10, friendly fire is turned off for all tier 1 Animals: you cannot damage them nor be damaged by them

Abilities[ | ]

Active Abilities[ | ]

  • Clicking makes the Orca dash forward and do 25% more damage to animals it hits.
Name Image Charge Time Description
Grab Orca Grab 0.35 seconds Charge boost to grab the target.

Grabbing a Shark causes them to lose their oxygen faster than usual.

The duration of the grab tends to shorten as animal's tiers grow. This is noticeable if you compare the duration of a grab with a tier 2 animal (like a crab) and a tier 10 animal (like a thresher shark).

Rapidly clicking allows Orca to repeatedly grab and release an Animal. This is known as double grabbing or triple grabbing.

Suitable Biomes[ | ]

  • The suitable Biomes for the Orca are the Ocean and the Arctic
    • If an Orca enters the Ocean, it will lose Oxygen; however it can swim and its Oxygen time is long enough for this to not matter.
    • If an Orca enters the Arctic, it will lose Oxygen; however it can swim and its Oxygen time is long enough for this to not matter.
    • If an Orca enters the Deeeep, it will lose Oxygen and Pressure.
    • If an Orca enters the Swamp, it will lose Oxygen and Salinity.
    • If an Orca enters the Swamp Surface, it will not regenerate Salinity.
  • The suitable biomes for the False Killer Whale (a stat-changing skin of the animal) are the Ocean and the Deeeep, allowing the Orca to be immune to Pressure in the Deeeep at the cost of loosing Temperature in cold biomes.

This is a complete list of Food that Orcas can eat.

History[ | ]

This section highlights all the changes made to the Orca in documented updates so far. A full changelog can be found here.

Update Changes
December 12th, 2016 Added two new animals with special abilities: whales and orcas!
January 21st, 2017 If a killer whale grabs a shark, it will now lose all of its oxygen.
February 1st, 2017 Killer whales now grab sharks for less time.

Killer whales are now slowed down depending on the size of what animal they grab.

February 13th, 2017 Killer whales can now be hit while grabbing.

Killer whale's maximum grabbing time for a shark has been reduced from 4 to 3 seconds.

Whales and killer whales can now hit each others' species.

DogJelly's idea: Whale's attack increases when killer whales or sharks are near. 5% per shark and 15% per orca, stackable 5 times. Attack only increases towards Sharks/Orca.

February 28th, 2017 Sharks and orcas can now eat NPC fish (pollock).

Fixed screen being stuck when grabbed by an orca bug.

Removed whale damage bonus for sharks (and bonus for orcas is divided by amount of whales near).

March 18th, 2017 Fixed a bug about orcas instantly hitting after release.

Orcas now bounce after releasing, to avoid having their victims getting stuck against the floor.

Orcas can no longer grab cachalots.

April 5th, 2017 (Beta)

Orcas now only bounce when releasing if their prey is pushed against the ground.
