The cheetah is the eighth animal in, and the land equivalent of the Stingray and Wolf.


The cheetah:

  • Can be eaten by everything above it
  • There is also a slim chance you can spawn as a Jaguar (5/250), Leopard(4/250), or Black Panther (1/250).
    • Jaguar, Leopard, and Black Panther can climb hills and trees. Leopard supposedly has a longer dive time than cheetah. Black Panther is fast in mud.


The cheetah has a pale golden color, with 20 darker spots on its back. Unlike in real life, the cheetah grows to be much larger than the lion. The Jaguar has 17 markings on its back and is more of an orangish-brownish color. The Leopard has 18 different markings on its skin and is a darker shade than the Cheetah. The Black Panther has 21 of the same markings as the Jaguar, and is entirely black, with different shadings of black in different places.


Cheetahs, like Deer, are faster than normal on land. You can use your speed boost to easily escape from predators. Be careful not to curve around something, such as a hill, because that can give your pursuer an opportunity to attack you! If you have a straight path that you can follow to flee from your predator, you should be fine and able to lose your predator or jump into a hiding hole quickly.

Your increased speed also gives you an advantage in hunting and chasing prey; make sure to use your speed boost when they are running in a straight line.

Make sure to guard your tail well; it's much longer than most other animals, and therefore more susceptible to be bitten by potential prey.

Eat pears, bananas and mushroom bushes to level up.

You can also try launching yourself at the tail of a dragon/black dragon to level yourself up quite a ways in a relatively safe and very efficient manner. It's recommended to wait until BDs/Phoenixes are out of the lava. Or simply try to bite a T-REX which would normally won't be in the lava, this may be ineffective sometimes, as skilled high tiers will try to defend their tail if they notice you.

If you are a Leopard, Jaguar, or Black Panther, be warned that people WILL want to kill you (presumably out of jealousy). If they attack you, boost away every chance you get until they give up. You can also climb hills, so you can use Ocean hills to cut across and get to a whirlpool. If you are a Black Panther, you can also speed away using mud.
