Summary[]

Rangifae is a genus of fauna in No Man's Sky. They are commonly referred to as "diplos" due to their similarity to long-necked sauropod species from Earth biology, including Diplodocus.

See the Rangifae category for more examples.

Rangifae species can be found on land, excluding caves.

Rangifae are considered one of the rarest land fauna in the game, with only a 0.25% chance to be found on a planet.

Daplokarus appears to be pre-release example of the Rangifae fauna, but any species similar to it is yet to be found, given the updates that have been given to fauna since the release of No Man's Sky, it may be more likely to find similar creatures to Daplokarus in the future of No Man's Sky.

Defining Characteristics[]

The Rangifae genus has one major variant, which can be divided into two subgroups: arched-back and flat-back. Both variants are fairly similar, with the only difference being, as the name suggests, the arched-back variant has a "humped back," while the flat-back variant has, by comparison, a fairly horizontally level back.

Variant Types[]

The following variants are noted:

  • Head Frill Dragon - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with frilled fanned wings on a dragon style head.
  • Flathead - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with a large flatbone protruding on the head.
  • Trojan - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with frilled crests on its neck and/or head.
  • Cobra - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with a snake-like neck and head.
  • Spyro - A compact curled-necked dinosaur-like creature.
  • Spade-Frill Giraffe - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with frilled wings or plates on the neck or upper torso, with a giraffe-like head.
  • Hammerhead - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with large bones protruding horizontally from the skull in the approximate location of where ears may be expected.
  • Beak - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with a bird-like beak and head.
  • Dragon - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with a dragon style head.
  • Halo Sword - A long-necked "Diplo" or dinosaur-like creature with a large flat sail or halo style bone protruding over the head and extending a large distance.
