      Favorite pet to race?

      In your opinion, what is the "funnest" pet to race?

      I've recently completed my Stain Glass Roller project so now I need a NEW derby pet. I chose the Stain Glass Roller because I loved how it rolled - so efficient! But for my NEXT pet, I want something more...fun.

      Other pet's I've had as racers are Crimson Spectres, Silverback Wildclaws, Snow Beasts, Patriotic Leprechauns, and Sandmen. Of those the only ones I really liked were Silverbacks - I really love the way they run and I think they have one of the best celebration dances.

      But what am I missing? Any pet out there that's really unique in the way it runs, or clears hurdles, or celebrates?

      I should also say that my next pet MUST be hatchable in the kiosk, so afraid that eliminates quite a few possibilities.

      Curious what others think is a "fun" pet to race.

      Re: Favorite pet to race?

      When I first started racing in the pet derby I used the Krokotillian Pet. I love the way it half shuffles/marches across the floor; as if they were rubbing their socks for an electrical charge. I think their hat jumps off too when ducking and jumping.

      Honorable mention to any of the Knight pets, IE Shiverous Knight. They have a Crash Bandicoot dance. That will always be the best victory dance imho.

      Ouch - had to look that one up because I've never heard of a Crash Bandicoot. I'll have to take one of those Knights out for a spin and see for myself...

      Re: Favorite pet to race?

      I've always preferred floating/flying pets to walking/running ones myself, with one of my favorites being the Pixie Queen pet mostly because of nostalgia reasons (it was the first pet I got into Derby with when it first came out).

      Re: Favorite pet to race?

      My disappointment was immeasurable when I found out my snowhoppers couldn’t be put on the kiosk. There’s certain satisfaction to taking the first AND second spot on the podium...

      So my current favorite is the ornery kookaburra and its hybrids. The only problem is that they’re also INCREDIBLY popular normal pets. I looked at the fire hybrid alone and there’s probably a couple hundred mega pets of its kind in the kiosk.

      I have to agree with @Hollowspyre for the knight pets, because apart from the victory dance they also have a unique free-style-esque swim mechanism that looks quite cool, as opposed to just running in water like most other pets!

      OK, trained a Boundless Knight to teen and did a race. I will agree that the dance on the podium is THE BEST - the hopping and twirling move is fun, but the side to side hip thrusts - brilliant. And the jumps were cool too - he uses his lance as a pole vault!

      But...not sure about the free-sytle-esque swimming you referenced. My Boundless Knight runs with his hands kinda to his side (well, one side for sure because he's carrying his lance) and..me no likey.

      The search continues...

      Ah, ok. Maybe I was wrong, I had only done a practice race once with the ethereal knight, my bad! It definitely looked like freestyle when I did it.

      Re: Favorite pet to race?

      Bumping this because I STILL haven't found THE PET.

      I should clarify that what I'm looking for will tick all the following boxes -


      • LOOKS. Not sure if I want cute, or just unique, or what, but I know what i don't like when I see it!
      • MOVES. First and foremost it MUST run! But how it runs and goes over and under hurdles is important.
      • DANCES. Ah, the dancing! So far the absolute BEST dancers are the Knight pets.
      • KIOSK-ABLE. MUST be hatchable in the kiosk.


      Maybe if folks could give me ideas for what your favorites are for each of the first three criteria I could check them all out and find THE ONE?

      For me...

      LOOKS: Am partial to animals that walk / run - not anything that flies or inanimate objects.
      MOVES: Hands down the best RUNNERS are the pets that roll like the Stain Glass Rollers but I also like how Wildclaws run. I dislike any pet that HOPS. For hurdles I like how the Calexo Kitten flattens itself spread eagle going under hurdles or how the Knight pets use their lances to Vault over.
      DANCES: So far nothing beats the Knights side to side hip shakes.

      Thanks for sharing!
