The Pelican is a tier 6 animal. It is based on its real life counterpart, the American White Pelican, Pelecanus erythrorhynchos.

Mechanics[ | ]

  • Any Tier 5 animal can evolve into a pelican.
    • 24,000 XP is required for a seagull to evolve into a pelican.
  • Pelicans evolve into any of the tier 7 animals. 30,000 XP is required for a pelican to evolve.
  • Pelicans drop meat upon death.
  • In Free for all mode, friendly fire is turned off for pelicans meaning that pelicans cannot damage other pelicans. Pelicans cannot also damage Seagulls in FFA, putting pelican at a disadvantage for hunting.

Abilities[ | ]

Passive Abilities[ | ]

  • You can fly as long as you are in the air. When you are in the water, you will lose oxygen and float upwards automatically.

  • You are slower when moving downward while underwater.
  • Is not slowed down by coral fans or table corals.

  • Charge boosting while walking causes you to jump.
  • Boosting while not walking causes you to dash and deal 25% more damage to animals you hit.
  • Charge boost to dash forward and swallow a tier 1-4 animal.
    • Click to release the swallowed animal
  • Charge boosting while walking causes you to jump. You will jump higher the more you charge a boost. This does not consume a boost.

  • The suitable biome for the pelican is the ocean surface and the swamp surface.
    • If a pelican enters the water, it will lose oxygen.
    • If a pelican enters the arctic surface, it will lose temperature.
    • If a pelican enters the deeeep, it will lose oxygen and pressure.
    • If a pelican enters the deep swamp in the team FFA map ffa_mrbirdyflee, it will lose pressure.
