Animal Ark and a few Animal Orbs as shown in the Animal Orb section of How to Play.

Animal Orbs, also called pets by many players, are creatures found throughout the game that provide various bonuses and enhancements. Once found, these helpers will float next to the player and provide a bonus. The Animal Ark houses all of the player's unlocked Animal Orbs. When you start a game as another character, all the Animal Orbs will remain unlocked. Once you've touched them and unlocked them, you can simply exit to the World Map instead of finishing off the entire level.

There are 29 Animal Orbs in the game. (Including DLC)

To view where the Animal Orbs are ranked in the Remastered versions of the game, visit the Animal Orb Tiers page.

Trivia Edit

Animal orbs used

Players with Animal Orbs playing through the Full Moon level.

  • There are a total of 29 Animal Orbs in all versions of the game.
    • However, only 28 are required to unlock the Animal Handler achievement.
  • Install Ball, Yeti, Chicken, and Golden Whale are the only Animal Orbs to appear in different The Behemoth titles.
  • Every single stat boosting Animal Orb, bar Chicken, was buffed in the PC version of Castle Crashers and Castle Crashers Remastered.
  • Cardinal, Pazzo, Seahorse, Yeti, and Zebra were given hidden stats that can only be viewed at the player's statistics in the PC version of Castle Crashers and Castle Crashers Remastered.
  • There is a trick in which two or more players hold the same pet at the same time. To do this, the players will have to do the following steps: 
    1. Player 1 first gets the pet that the other players wish to clone. This can be done in a solo or multiplayer game. The player then exits the game.
    2. Player 2 proceeds to start up a solo game themselves. Player 2 selects the pet that Player 1 chose. If 3 (or 4) players are playing and all want to clone the pet, then Player 3 (and 4) repeats what Player 2 does.
    3. Finally, all players should come together to start up another multiplayer game. If done correctly, all players will now have the same pet.
  • If you were to play a multiplayer game with a person who owns every pet that you don't own yourself and If you attempt to take one of the pets, an exclamation mark appears over the pet and it shakes, preventing you from getting the pet right then and there.
