Mope.io is a very unique and cute IO game. It’s a browser based MMO where players can assume the role of various wild animals. Unlike most io games, you can also chat! Initially you start out as a tiny mouse. Then, as you eat more food, you will evolve into bigger and stronger creatures. You can transform all the way up to a cheetah, a rhino and even a dragon. Yep, you heard it right. You can evolve into a dragon in mopeio!
In the following article I will explain a little bit about the first couple of animals and what their special abilities are. The fox is currently the highest animal I have ever reached. Lame, I know. But as I keep playing this wonderful game, I will surely expand the article to cover more and more creatures.
Here’s a screenshot of me being the fox. Bonus points for you if you recognize the username reference!
Mope.io animals and their abilities
As I already mentioned earlier, you start out as a tiny mouse. As a mouse you can only eat berries. It took me a while to get it, but berries are actually all of those red circle shapes. Go figure. So just eat those when you’re but a small mouse and soon enough you will transform into…
When you are a rabbit you can eat berries as well as mice. You’ll need to gather 50+ points to transform into one and it shouldn’t provide that much of a challenge.
It takes 230 XP to turn into a filthy, fat pig. Not only can pigs eat berries, rabbits and mice, they can also eat mushrooms. Which means that you no longer get stuck behind those weird looking things. Great! Time to move onto the next animal…
The fox! I think one of the biggest advantages a fox can have in this game is the fact that it can hide inside redberry bushes. Hiding there really helped me out on numerous occasions and you can slowly eat berries at the same time without being harmed.
After a while though I got killed by a mole so I guess hiding inside a bush isn’t safe from all enemies. The fox is the farthest I’ve climbed on the “evolutionary ladder”.
Deer lord! At 1400 XP you can turn into a deer. While I haven’t personally reached so far due to being killed all the time by annoying little ****, I’ve seen these guys around quite often. So it shouldn’t be that hard to reach, right? I don’t know about that…
Other animals in mope.io
After the deer there are other, more powerful animals (see full list here). For example you can turn into a mole right after being a deer when you gather 3200 XP. It can burrow underground and hide in holes.
Or how about something more exotic like a zebra or a cheetah? You can also become a bear, a lion, a crocodile, a rhino, a hippo and eventually, if you are good enough, you get to be the dragon.
Although you won’t look as cool as you’d hope, you’ll still be able to fly over everyone and eat almost any other creature on the ground.
There’s also a theoretical animal after the dragon, but nobody has ever reached it. Why? Because it would take a whopping 100 million XP to turn into one of these.
Unknown “Black Dragon”
The theoretical creature is called the “Unknown” and the only clue of its existence can be found when dissecting the game’s source code.
Apparently on line 355 there’s a function called drawAnimal() which lists the color codes for all animals in the game. We can see that for an animal labeled simply as “???” the HTML color code is 000000 or the blackest black.
