The Cock-a-doodle-emu is the eighth emu in the game. It could only be obtained by purchasing it in the 2017 Chinese New Year event for 300Ingot, and after purchase it can be found permanently in the stampede. After the 18th of May 2017, in update 1.8.0, it was re-released and reclassified as an endangered animal, meaning that it can only be found on certain random days. Its match can then be found on certain random days after the player tames it.

Appearance Edit

The Cock-a-doodle-emu has a crest that is tall and has four points, going from shortest to tallest from front to back, a red beak with dangling bits called wattles, red diamonds around its eyes, a ring of red and yellow leaves around the base of its neck, a back that is orange in the middle, red near the edges and has purple edges and sides that are coloured a yellow and red gradient. Red feet are attached to the Cock-a-doodle-emu's yellow legs, and its neck is coloured an off white and amber gradient. Its tail is vibrant, with three downwards-bending feathers coloured purple and fading into blue at the tip, as are its wings, which are also purple, with a yellow marking shaped like a lightning bolt.

Description Edit

This rooster only crows when the stars align once every 12 years.

Notes Edit

  • The Cock-a-doodle-emu was first released on the 25th of January 2017 in version 1.5.0 to celebrate Chinese New Year, expiring in version 1.6.0 on the 8th of February 2017.
    • It was re-released permanently on the 18th of May in version 1.8.0 as an endangered animal, where its tier, XP value and breeding time changed from 4, 12 and 8hrs respectively to what it currently is.
  • The Cock-a-doodle-emu is a play on a rooster, which relates to Chinese New Year celebrations as 2017 was the year of the rooster in the Chinese calendar.
    • The name is a portmanteau of 'cock-a-doodle-doo', which is the onomatopoeia for the call of a rooster, and 'emu'.
    • The description references how the Chinese calendar follows a twelve year cycle, with the year of the rooster coming around ever twelve years.
  • The Cock-a-doodle-emu could be obtained when expired from the 21st of April to the 20th of May during the Emu Challenge.
