    open/close all folders 

All alone for centuries, the Derps started to conjure Gods to fill their dull existence... and the Gods answered, blessing them with new abilities and purposes in life.


The first God to be created as a way for those very early Derps to feel loved and wanted. She sees no flaws and loves all Derps equally. Everyone loves Vita. She gave us our first stat, Vitality. Finally, something to live for!
  • Expy: To Cocomama from Tap Tap Infinity, another Idle Game created by the same developer as this one. Both of them are motherly Goddesses who have abilities that promote growth.
  • Nice Girl: She's the nicest of the Gods and loves all the Derps equally.


Turns out, Vitality alone makes for truly stupid Derps. Fortua, who thinks that no Derp is ever smart enough, tries to add in a little smarts to the mix and granted the Derps Intelligence!


Tunda's sole goal is to take that mushy Derp exterior and turn them into fighting machines. He gave the Derps Strength something worth fighting for.
  • Blood Knight: All he mainly cares about is making the Derps battle for glory, and even mentions that "War is Life" and "WAR IS EVERYTHING"! Unsurprisingly enough he's in charge of warfare.
  • Drop the Hammer: His weapon of choice is the Derp Hammer, a battlehammer. The player's able to "borrow" it during warfare, allowing them to click on enemy units to deal some damage to them.
  • Expy: To Apoc from Tap Tap Infinity, another Idle Game created by the same developer as this one. Both of them are muscular Gods that value strength and power.


The Derps were loved, amped up on a war, tempered back down with intelligence and then finally we just needed a little crazy. That's right: To maintain an edge, an unpredictability, the Derps created Loko. He gave the Derps their final stat, Agility.
  • That's All, Folks!: He tells the player that yep, the game's really over and that you've beaten it once you evolve your Derps to Phoeniks.


Eventually the happy lives of the Derps started to show flaws, another emotion personified came into being: anger! Bob populates his armies with the Derps you sacrifice, ready for their vengeance!
  • Aerith and Bob: While all the other Gods have fancy sounding names, this guy's name is... Bob.
  • Big Bad: The closest thing to what this game has as a villain. He's the one controlling the enemy Derps (or Derp-equivalents) in battle maps.
  • Cthulhumanoid: Appears to resemble Cthulhu himself.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He gets a breakdown when the player obtains his artifacts and even begins sobbing once you activate them.
  • Video Game Cruelty Punishment: Plays this role in a way. All those creatures that you will inevitably sacrifice? They join his army and are ready to seek vengeance.

    Species - Endless Desert 


Species 0! That makes them special, so very very special. Offers undying love which would mean more if they didn't die all the time.


This species is 100% better than the last one. The last one was basically a 0, so gratz! They are very eager to please.
  • Cyclops: Like Derps, they only have one eye.
  • Stealth Insult: Calling the Blerps 100% better than the Derps, who were "basically a 0". Being 100% better than 0 still gives 0.


Perfected a jiggly belly dance that gives them hours of entertainment.


Very pleased with their new teeth, they keep accidentally biting their rejuvenating limbs off. Also, nearly able to see at dusk!
  • Gag Nose: Their nose is really big.
  • Healing Factor: Their limbs can easily regrow, a good thing too since they keep biting them off.


Walks so slowly that depending on which way they are facing they can actually go backwards because they are slower than the rotation of the Earth.
  • Artistic License – Physics: It's pretty impossible to move backwards from the same spot because the Earth spins faster than you walk, since one also moves along with the Earth's rotation. Then again, this inaccuracy is due to the Rule of Funny.
  • Meaningful Name: Their name appears to sound like "Trudge", a slow and heavy walk. Fittingly enough, these guys walk extremely slowly.

    Species - Another Level 

In General:

  • Big Eater: Their insatiable appetite causes them to eat half of all baked cookies.


Recently discovered they had spikes on their heads which they were very happy to use to shave fresh coconut for Pina Coladas!


Their large head gives the illusion of intelligence. They use it to store marshmallows and facts about Marshmallows.
  • Cyclops: They only have a single eye.
  • My Brain Is Big: Subverted. They have a large head that makes them appear as if they're intelligent. However, all they do with it is store marshmallows and facts about Marshmallows.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Marshmallows, if the Flavor Text is to go by.
  • Waddling Head: Appears to be a head on multiple insectoid legs.


Can't quite coordinate the movement of their hands and feet and often end up swinging their arms wildly without making much progress.
  • The Klutz: Thanks to being unable to coordinate their movements, they often end up looking and acting clumsy.
  • Meaningful Name: To lollop is to move in an ungainly, clumsy manner — which these guys do almost all the time.


The first of their species to host dance competitions. Everyone is a winner!
  • Dance Off: Are noted for being the first species (of Derp evolution) to host dance competitions.


They have been known to stare at shiny objects for up to 8 days straight. 8 days!
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Inverted here — they're known to stare at shiny objects, but are in fact too attention-focused at it to the point where they can take up to 8 days doing it.

    Species - Molten Expanse 


A few crossed genomes. Most end up blind by dinner.
  • Cyclops: Have a single eye. Which they have a tendency to bite off.
  • Epic Fail: Thanks to having their eye-stalk inside their mouth, they're highly likely to accidentally blind themselves by dinner by presumably biting their eye off. Apparently the Tebblers' evolution really didn't turn out well.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Their eye or eyestalk appears to be in their fanged mouth. Naturally, many of them end up blind by dinner.


Can swim up to 100mph in the water but unfortunately made their home on land where they flop at approximately 3mph if the wind is favorable.
  • Graceful in Their Element: They're noted to be very fast in water. Unfortunately, they make their homes on land, where they're very awkwardly slow on.
  • Meaningful Name: They appear to be eel-like creatures but with tentacles.


In charge of dicing the cherry tomatoes for the pico de gallo on taco Tuesdays!


Their tail is filled with enough poison to render a brown bear unconscious. They don't even know they have a tail.


Their decorative wings keep extinguishing the pilot light in the oven and all their pizzas are too doughy. They hate doughy pizza.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: They appear to be an insectoid species.
  • Wings Do Nothing: Not only are their wings just decorative and cannot help them fly, in fact they're actively detrimental since those wings keep putting out the pilot light in the oven causing their pizzas to be doughy. And they hate doughy pizza.

    Species - Sugar Fields 


Tusk n' Gills' the name of the bar they dream of opening one day. For now they stick to homebrew and potluck dinners with friends.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Appear to be a cross between walruses and catfishes, with a horn on their head. The name of the bar they want to open also references this.


They can hug up to 4 friends at once but because their breath is so bad no one has ever hugged them.
  • Cuddle Bug: They attempt to be this, even being capable to hug 4 friends at a time, but nobody ever wants to get near because of their bad breath.
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz: The plural for their species name ends with a z, not an s.


Can communicate using a very sophisticated guttural noise but the only thing they ever talk about is the sad state of their stale cheesy poofs.
  • Starfish Language: They can communicate with a sophisticated guttural noise to each other.


They don't know how to turn the subtitles off on their TV which is so annoying.


Do not give them chewing gum, they just swallow it. They are bad at chewing gum.
  • Cyclops: They only have a single eye.
  • Logical Weakness: They only have two teeth at the sides of their mouths like tusks. Of course they'd be bad at chewing gum, since they don't have any teeth inside their mouths.

    Species - Frozen Plains 


Are vegetarians except for fish, chicken, and bacon. Same for all other vegetarians really.
  • Gag Nose: All of them sport a really huge bulbous nose.
  • Straw Vegetarian: Despite being known as vegetarians, they apparently eat fish, chicken and bacon.
  • Take That!: Their flavor text is one to those "vegetarians" who would happily eat fish and chicken "because they are fish/chicken and not animals".


They have very itchy bellies which they are constantly scratching with their talons so gross.
  • Inconvenient Itch: While they're capable of scratching their itchy belly, it's constantly itching anyways so being able to scratch their itch to resolve it is a moot point.


Very proud of the fact that they can move in every direction just by moving their feet. Don't tell them that's not special, you'll burst their bubble.


They eat 14 times a day and the only food they can digest are moths.


Such a happy species due to their short-term memory deficiencies. They've watched the same Bugs Bunny cartoon 59,280,920,392 times.
  • Forgetful Jones: They have short-term memory deficiencies, to the point where they watch the same Bugs Bunny cartoon many billion times.
  • Perpetual Smiler: They're smiling in their artwork, and it's also noted that they're a very happy species due to their short-term memory deficiencies.
  • Waddling Head: They appear to be a smiling head with two feet.

    Species - Moon Base 


The loudest species in the world. You can hear their voice from space!!


Mud dwellers, these guys pride themselves on supple skin and impeccable grooming routines.
  • Covered in Mud: They tend to do this often, but it's used to help their skin stay good.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: They appear to be a crocodillian species. Despite this they're not hostile and would rather show off their skin and grooming routines.


Kelp-eating cardio-maniacs who use social media to brag about all their gainz.


Considered intellectuals, they invented a form of arguing called "erming" which involves umming and awwing at each other for hours.
  • Cyclops: They only have a single eye.
  • The Unintelligible: Their arguments with each other consist of going "umm", "aww", and "erm".


They can leap up for 100 feet in the air but have no means of landing the jump so they mostly teeter in one place.
  • Cyclops: They only have a single eye.
  • In a Single Bound: Can leap up for 100 feet in the air. Unfortunately, they don't do it since they don't know how to land properly.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Even though they're capable of high-distance jumps, they lack the ability to land properly, and as such just teeter in one place.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Their arms are far bigger and stronger than their legs, which are tiny compared to the rest of them. In fact they stand on their hands and not their legs.

    Species - Celestial Forge 


Can communicate telepathically but since the only thing they ever talk about is popcorn toppings, it's not that impressive.
  • Badass Adorable: Really cute creatures which are one of the final evolutions in the game and have the stats to prove it.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Appear to be a cross between mice and octopi.
  • Telepathy: They're capable of communicating via this method. They only use it to talk about popcorn toppings, however.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Implied to be popcorn considering how they always talk about it.


Embarrassed by their back hair, they always swim with a shirt on.


The mastermind behind the mastermind stare. And, their hair is a cape. Their hair is a cape!
  • Cyclops: They only have one eye.
  • Badass Cape: Their hair serves as one. And considering that they're the third-to-last evolution, they definitely count as badass.
  • Kubrick Stare: They're an expert at it, as shown in their artwork and flavor text.
  • Rapunzel Hair: That appears to look as a cape, no less.


Innately distrusting of everything and everyone. They once thought a can of SPAM would bring ruin on their village.
  • The Cynic: Innately distrusting of everything... to the point where they think a can of Spam ham can ruin them.
  • Mistaken for Apocalypse: Once thought a can of SPAM ham would cause a catastrophe to them, thanks to their innate distrust of pretty much everything.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Appear to be fish-like creatures with insectoid legs.


They can fly, walk, talk, make pancakes and celebrate birthdays! Truly the most evolved species ever.
  • All Your Powers Combined: When you evolve your Grimons into these, the text displays "Forging Perfection", and then it shows a "slideshow" of all the rest of the creatures as they appear to "shrink" and combine into the Phoeniks. Appropriately, the Phoeniks are a Master of All, having gained all the best traits and abilities of the other creatures.
  • Badass Adorable: They're one of the cutest species in the game, and are also the Ultimate Lifeform with the highest stats of all creatures.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Despite being named after The Phoenix, they're more insectoid humanoids with six wings.
  • Flight: The only species in the game capable of flight, having flight-capable wings unlike the Krivs' purely decorative ones.
  • Master of All: As their Flavor Text says, they can fly, walk, talk, make pancakes, and celebrate birthdays! As mentioned by Fortua, they're also capable of singing, dancing, and waxing lyricals on the meaning of existence!
  • Mundane Made Awesome: In-universe, the Gods consider their ability to do so many things, several of which are mundane, as the pinnacle of evolution. Such as being able to celebrate birthdays.
  • The Phoenix: In name only — they resemble a humanoid insect than a reincarnating bird.
  • Ultimate Lifeform: These are the pinnacle of Derp evolution and can do several things that the other species are unable to. Evolving to them even shows a sequence of the DNA of all the other creatures fusing into them, with the words "Forging Perfection" to boot. The game is completed once you manage to evolve them, too.
  • Winged Humanoid: They're bug-like humanoids with six functional insectoid wings.

How well does it match the trope?
