The Ichthyovenator is a playable piscivorous creature in Beasts of Bermuda. It is a dinosaur that depends heavily on the ocean to keep it alive, as its main food source consists of large quantities fish. For this reason, the Ichthyovenator is capable of swimming at very fast speeds, darting through the water in order to snag as much fish as possible before returning to the shores to rest.
Since it is both fast on and and water, the Ichthyovenator is difficult for most predators to catch, as it can dive into the water when chased by larger terrestrial creatures, and scramble back onto the shoreline when approached by deep-sea threats. Adding to its hard-to-catch nature is its special ability to escape the grab of the Mosasaurus!
Despite its great mobility, the Ichthyovenator will not always flee its foes. Sometimes it will take them head-on. With its fast attack speed, the Ichthyovenator can completely turn the tides, redefining who is the predator and who is the prey in a fight.
Pros and Cons
+ Very fast swim speed for a creature that walks
+ Can rely on fish instead of hunting other creatures
+ Good fighter
+ Hard to catch
+ Fast growth
- Is prey to aquatic predators
- Somewhat low hunger
- Secondary Attack: Two different attacks depending on if the Ichthyovenator is walking or swimming. When on land, it swipes its claws, dealing identical damage to its primary attack but with significantly better range, especially around its sides. When in water, it darts forwards, instantly consuming fish and damaging creatures along the way.
Special Ability: Using the Secondary Attack when trapped inside the jaws of a Mosasaurus will allow the Ichthyovenator to struggle out of it, though it costs a high amount of ability power and injures the Ichthyovenator in the process.
Unique Attribute: The Ichthyovenator can detect fish by using its scent key. It will highlight all nearby fish, making them much easier to spot.
The Ichthyovenator has its predators. In the water, a Kronosaurus may be able to swiftly ambush it before it even has a chance to react, and on land, it faces danger from the Tyrannosaurus rex and the Acrocanthosaurus. Additionally, the Lurdusaurus can pose a threat to the Ichthyovenator, as it can chase it in the water and pummel it down with powerful attacks if it desires to do so.
- Interestingly enough, the Ichthyovenator's current model is not finalized. It will receive a new model in the future, but it is not prioritized on at the moment, as it does not look as visually unpleasing as the other unfinished creature models.
