When I was a noobie in Ark I saw this guy. Like the therizinosaur incident with me thinking this guy is passive I walked up to him while he was busy dealing three raptors. He slew the raptors easily then he drew his attention to me. I was like “Hello there” and he was like “Omae wa, mou shindeiru.” He stunned and easily killed me. Lesson learned. Don’t ever, ever go near creatures dealing with other hostiles. You might save your character by doing this.
The baryonyx is a piscivore, it was never intending to eat normal meat unless given easy access to such and preferred to eat fish for nutrients. But once humans came, the once passive creature was tamed and forced to constantly kill dinosaurs and humans that the creature had no interest in eating. After the domestic baryonyx were abandoned by their human owners and set to thrive on their own again, they had a newfound taste for regular meat, which had much more taste variety than fish, and eventually all baryonyx acquired this interest in the taste of non-fish flesh and have become aggressive towards humans and other creatures.
Once there was a baryonyx that lived in a river with his mom and dad. He was a newborn baryonyx. He had a normal life (kill,eat,sleep). But that all changed one day. An Oviraptor kidnapped him and took him to a small cave. The oviraptor was about to eat him when a roar-like sound came from somewhere near. The oviraptor dropped the baby baryonyx and ran. Then the baryonyx got picked up by... his older sister who is bigger than a oviraptor but smaller than a tricer. The sister put him back at the nest with his twins. ( I will give you names now: the baby baryonyx name is Barry, the sisters name is Emily, and the twins names are Tommy and William)
One time, I had a Baryonyx named Barry (naming creatures is not my forte). I wanted another Baryonyx, but I didn’t have very much fish. I wanted prime fish meat, so I attacked a sabertooth salmon. I hit one, but that aggroed it and a TON of them that were nearby. Thankfully, Barry was there. He WRECKED the salmon, and left with around 20 full stacks of fish meat. I tamed the other Baryonyx, but soon, Barry met a terrible fate. I explored upriver, and was faced with an onslaught of Dilos and raptors. Barry fought well, but they just kept coming, and he eventually was defeated. RIP Barry, my great companion 🥺😣🥺😣
Tried taming one of these guys. Accidentally knocked ‘em out in the water. Moment he woke up 5 piranhas were on him. While he’s fighting he attacks a salmon. Big mistake. 10-12 of those guys start fighting him too. I get in there to help my bary and shoot a bronto by mistake. Now I’ve got piranhas, salmon and a bronto on me. I make it to shore, whistle for him to follow, and immediately get jumped by a raptor and his buddy. I hop on my pteranodon and fly away while my bary follows. Not a second later a spino and three allos (one alpha) spawn right in front of us. So now he’s gone from fighting some fish, to fighting a bronto, two raptors, a spino, and a pack of allos. Needles to say, my guy didn’t make it. RIP man, had ya for 1 whole minute.
Once there lived a Baryonyx named Long John Silver. He was all black, with white chest and white muzzle. I used him to get some fish meat and the next thing I knew, a T. Rex played tackle football w my Bary……so I got the message: “Your Long John Silver (Baryonyx) was killed by a Rex”
So then, we played taps for LJS and did a salute to him
"You can't!" Shouted Diana, "your training isn't over, you need to stay."
"He can go if he chooses," Moirae said, "he's an adolescent, if he chooses to leave he can and we can't stop him. Besides, these three can take care of themselves, nothing we can do will keep him from leaving, so let him."
"Thank you Moirae," Asclepius replied.
"What I said earlier applies to you too, if you want to return to the pack you can whenever you want," Moirae said.
"We're ready to start bringing you over to the mainland," said Elpis.
"Alright," Moirae replied, "pack! Go as close to the shore as possible and spread out, we're getting off this island."
As Elpis and Achelois took flight the allos cheered and shouted, the pair swooped down and grabbed an allo each. They continued until dusk, when Elpis put down the last allo the whole pack erupted into cheers, hatchlings squawked while the rest ran up and down the beach. After celebrating, they ventured into the forest and slept for the night, "this is my first night of freedom and last with the pack," thought Achelois, "tomorrow my life begins, tomorrow I'm free."
Crystal Caverns was soon surrounded by Raptors, Velonasaurs, and Pegomaxtaxs. “What’s going on here?” Queen Blossom said. “Ugh, villains!” She roared. “Aren’t the heroes here? There’s no way these guys are still alive!” Said the Queen. Her guardians stood in front of her, for her own safety. “What’s happening Mom? What are you looking at?” The Princess said. “Nothing sweetie, it’s just-’’ she gets interrupted by the villains. “No speaking Miss Blossom! You have no right to speak!” Roared one. They tossed the Queen into her dungeon. “We’re here for your Princess (mysterious laugh)” roared a Velonasaur. “Ugh! Tossed into my own dungeon! Yuck!” She said. “I know right? I once was the Queen, the same thing happened to me and when I finally came out, i get tossed back in! Ugh.” The mysterious Crystal Dragon said. “Mother?” Blossom asked. “Is that yo-you?” She muttered. “Yes.” She answered. “I’ve made a home in here, I’ve been here for 2 days. I’m not that old you know.” She said. “Oh, I thought you were dead! I’m glad your still here! I’ve missed you!” The Queen yelled. “We need to get out now! We have no time before the Dragon bursts out through the cave she was stuck in! Look! Up there. I see, light!” The Mother said. “Light…(Gasp) light beats dark! The heroes must be the light! They must push the Dragon into the lava!” The Mother said lightly. “Yes they must. Now, let’s get out of here!” Said Blossom. They crawled through the little space they fit through. “My princess…I’ll be back for you.” The Queen said.
