Here’s a current list of buddies you’ll meet in the game; there will be more to come. Meanwhile get acquainted with these fellas first!
Click here to learn more about the buddies and what you can do with them in the NEXUS world.
Click here to check out the buddies in action; each buddy has their own little feature video to give you all a glimpse of them in their natural habitat.
A playful ape-like species that hatch from eggs and live in trees. Weak while young, they continue to wear the bottom half of the egg shell to protect themselves from predators that attack from below. The shell peels off fully by the time they become adults, able to protect themselves with their powerful arm strength.
They form tight-knit family tribes and are shown to have great intelligence and problem-solving skills. They are not unlike chimpanzees from our own world.
An amphibian sporting a solid back. It can stay unmoving for days on end, camouflaging in ponds until the water stagnates. It then feasts on any insects that seek to lay their eggs in stagnant water. It seems that Chukwas do not age and can live forever.
Some NEXUS records seem to imply that NEXUS itself might not be a sphere like our own world, but rather an entire ecosystem built upon the back of an ancient, giant Chukwa. This may sound absurd, but maybe it’s true?
Pigasi, like bumblebees, defy all known laws of physics with their tiny wings somehow able to keep them afloat. Opportunistic omnivores, they hover from tree to tree, gorging on fruit until they become too heavy to fly and retire for the day.
They’re quick little creatures and are easily startled so be careful not to alarm them, or you might just find yourself covered in their voluminous propelling fart.
A curious species unique to Nexus. They are essentially sentient collections of crystals and minerals unique to Nexus. Without a doubt, they are living creatures despite lacking biological traits.
They largely resemble fairies, approachable but also exhibiting a fondness for pranks. They’re a melodic experience, making chiming sounds in the presence of things they like, and groups of Lapis can produce sounds similar to a cacophony of wind chimes.
This adorable creature is a true marvel of a discovery. One might think this lion-like creature’s closest relative from our world would be something akin to a cat or a dog, but here’s the shocker: It seems to be a type of plant!
These bundles of joy start from being planted as fruit and crawl out blooming as blossoming, living flower beasts! They don’t seem to hunt anything and are especially active in the day when the sun is bright. They also smell so good!
Amphibious dragons with startling swimming speeds. They are territorial, lone hunters, and can somehow designate territory boundaries in the deep ocean alongside other Nessies. Against larger threats or schools of prey, they are also able to strategize and collaborate on the fly, signifying impressive degrees of intelligence. They are the unparalleled apex predator of the Nexus sea.
On land, however, they are as docile as dogs! Perhaps their confidence in their lethality allows them to approach other species without fear.
A rotund mammal with an impenetrable hide. Their bodies are pliable and elastic, able to retain almost 98% of kinetic energy, allowing them to squash and stretch limitlessly and bounce about with ferocity. With a powerful enough launch, they can continue bouncing in a straight line at the speed of a car.
They look cuddly, but they are most definitely not. At least, on first meetings. They’re very mindful of personal space and can be quite aggressive against new faces. Hugely territorial and protective of their flock, it would be interesting to see what happens if you can befriend one.
