Pet Personalities

After every three levels a pet gains, it will receive a new personality. Its personality appears in double-quotes next to the pet's name. A pet's personality continues to change every three levels so that it becomes more useful to its owner (although recent research shows that personality may actually change faster than every three levels for old pets). Below is a list of pet personalities and what they mean for the pet's behavior. There is no order of ascension; changes in personality are hand-picked by the Great Random. If you do not see your pet personality listed here, it may be because it has not been defined yet.

(This is all just "for fun"; there is currently no known indication that pet personality has any influence on the game.)

List of Possible Pet Personalities

Personality Description
"Ancient" An Ancient pet is one who has surpassed level 30 and has gained wisdom from reaching this legendary level. Your pet is at their best when under this personality. They will truly be an asset to your hero.
"Brutal" A brutal pet is often a result of a bad family background. When monsters across the fields beg your hero for mercy in exchange for their wealth, this pet will jump on top of the poor defenseless victim and pin it down. What comes next is truly brutal. Daring heroes who witness the sight describe the scene to be something that is in very heavy need of an Aura of Censorship.
"Bustler" This loyal pet will help push your hero through the often crowded areas of Godville Market and shove aside newbies for a clear path. As a result, your hero gets to go about his business faster.
"Cheerful" Always seems to be happy no matter the occasion, even when your hero has died. However, pets with this personality can be especially helpful when traversing through dreaded marshes, battlefields, and/or wastelands. Here, your pet acts like a golden beacon of hope for your hero, as well as any creature of good nature seeking passage through these lands.
"Chunky" Your pet is truly... chunkin'. Guild ladies who see this pet often lose sight of what they were doing, only to have their mouths drop open looking at how "chunky" your pet is. Heroes often consider "chunky" pets to be even less intelligent than they themselves are; but honestly, what would a hero know about intelligence? Chunky pets are actually slightly smarter than average for their species, being more likely to have had adequate nutrition in important brain-formative stages of development. Either that, or they're chunky because their stupid hero/ine overfeeds them. Who's stupid now?
"Clumsy" Clumsy pets seem to always be bumping into things and dropping artifacts, and knocking over priceless ceramic items everywhere they go, much to the dismay of traders. Having learned their lesson the hard way, most experienced shopkeepers have a habit of first peeking at every pet's status window to check for such a personality before letting them into their shop.
"Crumbly" Crumbly pets tend to crack under sheer pressure, much as the name suggests. This is especially true when in battle with a strong-looking monster. However, they can be easily soothed afterwards with a fresh batch of extra-crumbly cookies, the drier the better.
"Dashing" Dashing pets are often well-groomed and owned by hardworking masters. They tend to do very well in local pet shows and earn quite large sums during street performances. Owners of dashing pets also have a hobby of seeing exactly how fast their pets can dash, earning tons upon tons of gold from betting on their pets during makeshift races.
"Droller" To some can seem like a buffoon while to others seems amusingly odd and hyper-energetic which overwhelms most monsters. This over-achiever insists on being center stage and often grabs encouragements before their master can benefit from them.
"Drooler" A trickster, who often pulls pranks, this whimsically comical pet lures a monster into a false state of security with its charming smile, and then attacks with deadly consequences.
"Eternal" A pet with this personality is one who has seen it all. He's lived so long that nothing surprises him and nothing can stop him. Owners of pets with this personality have often been heard to comment: "It just seems like he'll always be there."
"Fearful" Hides at the sight of monsters, often giving backup through the form of intel to the master.
"Fearsome" This pet causes profound fear in other monsters. Will attack enemies from behind and will strike terror in their hearts mid battle, reducing their defense. Fearsome pets, with the exception of the Dandy Lion, dread nothing with the exception of kittens, cats, and most other large felines.
"Frisky" A playful pet who often misbehaves, but can be useful. May provide comic relief in tense situations.
"Garish" Tends to roll in mudpuddles, then romp through fields of flowers, collecting pollen of various hues. This distracts the Hero's opponents, reducing their defenses.
"Great" Alexander was once named the Great for apparent reasons, he traversed great expanses no man had ever before him. It must have taken much experience and wisdom for your pet to attain this quality. Be proud, for you have found yourself a truly great companion.
"Grand" Your pet is positively majestic. He walks around with a regal air bestowing brilliant smiles upon unwitting monsters, stupefying them while he goes for the kill. He may also have grand schemes to earn you much gold.
"Harsh" A harsh pet may be a result of having passed through the hands of many unpromising owners. As a consequence, your pet is distrustful most of the time and often takes the blame to itself. It will also bottle up its feelings before unleashing the great unhappiness on an unlucky passerby. It is rumored that soon after a resurrection, these pets will come to trust their owners, change personalities, and will remain loyal to their final death.
"Immortal" A truly one of a kind pet. This type is awarded to those who have survived an onslaught of tragedies, near-death experiences, brutal bearing, and yet lived to tell about it. These guys have a psyche and body that not even death can penetrate. Approach with caution.
"Indomitable" Do not be fooled by this pet's soft fur. This arrogant monster is sure of its ability to crush, kill, and destroy. Its arrogance is justified as the indomitable pet is one of the deadliest in Godville.
"Infernal" A truly devilish pet achieved through much misery and ill-treatment. Attacks monster often but may die easily as a result.
"Invincible" Your pet seem to have stolen the great forbidden fruits of King Steelnuts and ate it. It will be more tough for now but it will eventually fade away with time as your pet grows up.
"Lazy" A lazy pet isn't always of no help at all. Being a regular slacker has the benefits of being knowledgeable of topics that are outside the competitive sport of killing monsters and battling. A lazy pet may not fight well, but it makes delicious stews for your hero during camps and plays a good guitar solo or two!
"Long-lived" A pet may exhibit this personality at or around experience level 30.
"Lucky" When it comes to anything that requires luck, your pet always seem to score! It will easily win the local fishing contest for the heaviest trout caught, most number of Bull's Eye shot as well as many various competitions. With so many trophies won, your pet may happily melt one down for you for the purpose of building that great temple. Being lucky sure is a great blessing.
"Mighty" The great mighty pet is one seen standing on top of mountain cliffs against the sunset while showing off his great silhouette to everyone. Such a pet of awesomeness is the result of much proper training and is something that one should be proud of.
"Neat" Often fetches the hero goodies in order to receive praise, and enjoys learning tricks on its own. The main benefit of a "neat" pet is its desire to clean up the mess after a battle. This results in the accumulation of hidden gold and objects, with the side benefit of a well fed pet that is easy on the hero's food expenses.
"Nimble" A truly flexible pet that can dodge flying baskets and rotten fruits thrown at it and his master from pursuing stall owners. (You'd better return that stolen fish from that store)
"Oldie" An "Oldie" is a goodie, but more fragile pet that is slowing down with age, what it lacks in youthful vigor it more than makes up for in practical application of experience.
"Parlous" Oh dear, you must have pampered your pet a little too well to the point where your pet requires nothing short of a good pedicure and grand suite to rest it's tired little legs at every single town you stop by. Solution: Send your pet to military school.
"Perilous" Extremely brave and skillful at fighting monsters and will try to take down anything which annoys them. (Beware: Hazardous!)
"Retiree" A pet that has reached Level 30. Tired of fighting. Wants to take a nap 18 hours every day.
"Rorty" Useful but may decide to randomly destroy an item from your inventory
"Scary" Effective monster deterrent, although monsters scare themselves away a lot of the time too.
"Shaggy" Knows the little streets behind the markets and knows the little side deals that may be available. Helps the hero save some money through these little ways he is a fantastic bombastic pet!
"Skittish" Seems always to have drunk 12 energy drinks... at once.
"Slashing" No, not the kind when it comes to bargaining deals but this is one pet that is a little compulsive and will tear anything that can be torn and will enjoy slashing whatever that can be slashed.
"Snoopy" Enjoys the pleasure of finding things out. Probably has long ears and owns a dictionary.
"Splendid" Always happy, the perfect pet
"Steady" This pet has learned the art of surviving and exemplifies the idiom: "Slow and steady wins the race." Though it may take him a little longer than some other pets, you can be sure whatever he does will be masterfully completed.
"Superb" The most magnificent and splendid of beasts! If not a little pretentious.
"Superior" Yes... You know what that means. A superior pet is one that stands as master against all other puny beings. A superior pet also grants the owner access to some of the higher classes of treatment in guilds. Newbies commonly drool when they see such a pet cross their path.
"Surly" A surly pet is often seen as an ill-tempered child with bad manners. It will always try to settle disputes by showing off its large canines and threatening to bite whoever doesn't comply. Traders who see these pets often wet their pants before agreeing to decrease their prices.
"Swanky" Latest fashion ideas? What to wear this weekend? Your pet knows it all! Having an extensive knowledge and experience in this field, your pet can give valuable advice to your hero on which armor piece looks best with the other. Your hero can then walk proud in the wilderness knowing that he/she does not look like a donkey in tutu.
"Tenacious" A tough pet that is willing to follow your hero through harsh deserts and sticky swamps. It is able to last in conditions where other pets would have fainted.
"Toothless" A pet who has surpassed level 30 and requires dentures. Unfazed by the lack of teeth, or more likely, completely unaware of his condition, your hero's pet will continue to bite the enemy. With this personality, his bark really is worse than his bite.
"Truthful" Your pet seems to have a master's degree. It will tell your hero when it is wise to retreat , although , like The Voice of God to your hero, it doesn't always work.
"Unbeatable" Local monsters who take up the challenge against this pet often return with serious bruises on the necks and arms. Witnesses say that, when the monster tried to hit the pet with a punch, all they saw was a blur of movement before it received a 15-HIT COMBO! on the backs. After recovering, the witnesses see the pet posing a classic victory stance.
"Unique" Your pet is truly one of a kind to you. This is achieved only through much Divine Intervention on occasions that the pet has died and in return, the pet will take good care of your hero through life and death.
"Vigorous" Helps the hero heal by various means like fetching potions, but sometimes destroys an item in the hero's inventory. Will disappear while its owner sleeps to teach CPR to other pets. In short, it just CAN NOT stop moving.
"Vivid" Appreciates everything, unfortunately a little naive. Will glow brightly when excited, giving away its owner's location, although this trick may help a hero lost on the roads.
"Wild" Sometimes your pet sniffs the air and detects another one of his kind. He gets excited at the news that he might get a playmate. A pet in this state is best left alone in cases where signs of aggression are shown. (Caution: May bite)
