Additional Creatures Wiki

Kryptops are dinosaurs in Additional Creatures.


A very rare medium-large theropod, Kryptops posses a powerful adaptation on the arks. Inside its mouth is a breeding ground for a caustic virus, which it has weaponized in the form of a gaseous breath attack. When infected, Targets enter a Rabies-like state, as their body begins to devour itself as they enter a fury. Victims of this "Kryptops Virus" gain drastically increased strength, but seem more susceptible to damage in the process. Now, what predator would gain an advantage from fighting a prey that it empowers? Kryptops itself seems to have actually entered a simbiotic relationship with the virus it harbors inside its body. With a target infected, the virus inside of Kryptops creates a signal that puts Kryptops's own bodily systems into hyperdrive. Its muscles and skin suddenly tighten as adrenaline begins to flow, vastly increasing its physical defense: giving it the strength and durability to combat its frenzied prey. Tamed, Kryptops is often used as a weapon of biological warfare. Its disease-spreading nature makes it an excellent choice for dealing with enemy mounts. Provided the right training, Kryptops can become a surprisingly bulky and defensive creature for its size, once it reacts properly to a frenzied target, making it excellent for stalling when needed, while still draining the target's health.

  • Kryptops means "Covered Face", in reference to the crest on its snout.
  • Kryptops is one of the earlier abelisaur species, living in Niger 115 million years ago. It coexisted alongside other recognizable species such as Sarcosuchus, Suchomimus, Ouranosaurus, and Nigersaurus.
  • While nearly all abelisaurs had heavily reduced arms, the Kryptops in Additional Creatures does not, albeit still having small arms. This was explained by it being a very basal abelisaur, which still leaves standard theropod arms a possibility.
  • Kryptops in Additional Creatures are sexually dimorphic, with males having vertical stripes and females having horizontal stripes.
  • The viral abilities of Kryptops are a reference to the Kryptops in Fossil Fighters.
