Additional Creatures Wiki

Gargoyleosaurus are dinosaurs in Additional Creatures.


For an Ankylosaurian, Gargoyleosaurus is surprisingly quick and aggressive when provoked. This may be due to how this species's armor is distributed and how much lighter it is, but it plays into the creature's fighting style. Rather than bulky armor and a vicious clubbed tail, Gargoyleosaurus has lighter armor and a long tail with blade-like bone protrusions. This causes its tail to act in a similar manner as a chain whip, causing death by many cuts to its enemy. However, what makes Gargoyleosaurus terrifying is the fact that it is far more deadly to smaller targets. The blades of Gargoyleosaurus tear open a target deeper on each hit...until finally they cause massive blood loss in a surge of expelled blood. What's worse, is that the amount of hits needed to cause such damage varies drastically based on the size of the creature Goyle swings its tail against, as even a single strike from Gargoyleosaurus's tail is more than enough to easily kill a survivor in the most defensive flak, riot, or tek armors! When tamed, this ability to eviscerate a target and be rewarded with burst damage makes Gargoyleosaurus a unique tame that is powerful in the right situations, and easily overpowered in others.

Only two types of food are acceptable for taming Gargoyleosaurus, with these being from most to least effective:


  • Gargoyleosaurus means "Gargoyle Lizard".
  • Gargoyleosaurus is one of the first known true ankylosaurians, and first nodosaur, known in the fossil record, living in the Late Jurassic, 155 million years ago. At 3 meters long, it stands out from typical Morrison giants like the sauropods and large theropod dinosaurs like Allosaurus.
  • Gargoyleosaurus is the signature creature for the status effect: Blood Loss. Early in development this was called "Eviscerate". The idea was for this to be an "armor-breaking" creature.
  • The Gargoyleosaurus model was created by Jagged Fang Designs.
