These are amazing! Thank you for sharing!
Man...it'd be nice to have sideview battlers of all of these, even the carbuncles...Christmas comes early this year and I've got one doozy of a present for everyone here. I noticed when looking at the default resources in MV that there was an unusually small amount of animals--a smaller amount then most of the other RPG makers, and that will simply not do. I took a look at every other RPG maker's animals and I decided to remake them all for MV. I then also added some new animals that I felt like should be givens for any typical game. I tried to keep them faithful to the MV style, and there are a few I'm not completely satisfied with, and I will try and fix when I can.
I was also given a suggestion by Skysurfer about running horses. I was not going to do that at first but then I said "challange excepted" and well now we have running horses. (again trying to keep to the MV style)
Current count of unique animal sprites: 50+ (s-so many!)
the running horse animation IS 4 frames, so you will either need a plugin for extra frames or you will need to use some other method of using 4 frames in your animations, but it should be usable. Apologies that I could not bring it down to the default three frames, I really did try! But it just was not working like I wanted it to. Alternatively, they can be used in RPG maker XP. For the sake of information, the frames are 64x57, slightly bigger then the original sprite.
convenient dropbox link to download all animals currently:
- As these are (mostly) edits of MV's sprites, you will need a legal copy of RPG maker MV, otherwise~~
- Credit is appreciated, but not required.
- They are free to use for commercial or non commercial.
- You are free to edit, change, recolor, re-edit, remix, maim, mangle, add on, divide, and conquer to your heart's content. I don't even mind if you re-upload them elsewhere as it would only mean more people get access to them and that is A-OK in my books
New Pet Sprites:
These are small add ons to the default dog and cat sprites now with new dog breeds and cat breeds as well as various animals with carry bags.
Recolored cats with new patterns, stripes and spots
Fluffy cat/Maine coon:
Extra animal carriers:
Horses, Donkeys and Camels
Add on saddles for walking AND running horses as well as an official release of my donkey sprites. Now with ponies!
Saddle horses with small side bags
Running horses, one without anything, one with my saddle, one with the saddlebags, and one decorated from another post of mine found here under "general festival things"
sample of the decorated horse animation:
For the sake of completion, Here's an extra bonus sprite of a knight riding a running horse
black and white horses both walking and running
so many horse recolors they had to have their own spoiler, both walking and running:
solid color/plain horses:
alt recolors of the default:
alt horse patterns and types
Camels, both with one and two humps~! Complete with saddles and various colors
Consists of the cow, bull, pig, goat, sheep, giant chickens, and baby chicks
Giant Chickens: These guys where made because I needed a large chicken sprite for the cockatrice sprite, and decided to just roll with these as their own sprites:
Contains a large cat, tiger, lion, raccoon, fox, bunnies, bears, bear cubs, pandas, buffalo/bison, wild pig/boar musk ox, wolf/dog, jackals/wild dogs, badger, hippos goose, duck, seagull, ostrich, reindeer, yak, mountain goats, beavers, penguins, monkeys, and snow monkeys.
larger cubs with pandas!
Wolf/large dog; these aren't "wolfy" enough for me, but they could be used for wolves
wild dogs/jackals; for those that want wild dogs that are less bulky
Hippos: against my better judgment I went ahead and made a full character sheet
Ducks both walking and swimming:
Seagull: this is for overhead view, no proper seagull sprites yet! sorry!
mountain goats: I wanted wild goats, and the regular farmy ones wheren't cutting it.
Beavers: both swimming and walking u w o~
penguins: comes in a few different species, as well as sliding ones!
Monkeys: both regular and snow!
Very small animals
Squirrels, rats, chinchilla, ferrets, moles, large moles, frogs, large frogs, small turtles, large turtles, snakes, lizards, small birds, owls small crabs, large crabs, cobras, bees/beehives, butterflies and dragonflies
the animations for these are very basic/small since they are small animals and I figured it wouldn't be a big deal.
Large frog because why not? He too has basic animation because it amuses me.
snakes and lizards:
misc. flying birds
smaller birds- VX/VXA friendly!
Owls both sitting and flying:
flying butterflies and dragonflies
these are proper fish sprites like other animals. ment for undersea levels, aquariums, fish tanks.
variety of common small fish, round fish, sharks, larger sharks, great white sharks, mola molas, giant boss octopus/kraken
common variety of fishes
Larger Sharks: Due to the size of these sprites, I will not be making full sheets of these. They are about the size of three MV default characters~!
Great White Sharks:
Molamola/sunfish; a friend has pestered me for awhile to specifically make these guys!
Giant Octopus/Kraken: This guy was split into two parts, one for the head, and one for the tentacles. Because of how big he is, I will not be making full sheets of him, but hopefully having the tentacles separated out will be fun to play with and animate/move in game cinematics
Disclaimer: you WILL need to heavily edit these into sprite sheets, this is more of a resource sheet. The animations are simplistic for those that only want vague shadows, and doesn't want anything super detailed.
Mythological animals: Unicorn, Carbuncle, Cockatrice,Kirin/Qilin, Golems, walking monstrous mushrooms, mini mushrooms, running radishes, kasa-obaki/傘おば,Tanukis/ たぬ,Kappa/ 河童 ,floating skull heads, RPGXP styled ghosts, death sprites, zombie animals, possessed books, Arimans and catbear and werewolf/large wolfbeast, Giant cat/saber cats, Mimic Gate, and behemoth, spider people, recolored bosses: death, demon king, false prophet
Unicorn; gold horn and white horn versions. I included separate images for horns in case anyone wanted to use those too
Mini Mushroom Men:
Tanukis / たぬき / 狸
both with leaves on their heads and without u w u/ 'cause I thought it'd be cute~
Kappa / 河童 / かっぱ
couple of different versions.
floating Skulls/ghouls: inspired in part by Zelda games, these are litterally just floating skulls and some of them are on fire. I dunno that's pretty cool maan.
Death and misc. spirit sprites: gave death a smaller/human-esk form that's more manageable from his boss sprite
possessed/magical books: includes opening animation!
Ariman: based loosely off the 2003 design, though they're probably closer to the Final Fantasy series' version
Catbear: loosely based on a monster from secret of mana
werewolf/wolfbeast: would likely be too big for a werewolf that most people want and would simply just be a big giant wolf monster instead.
Big Saber Cats: FINALLY got around to making full bodied versions of the heads for the big cats I made for Sin's trophy heads
Behemoth: note: these do not animate. I figure they'd be better suited to use with overlapping effects:
because we could always use more bosses/big sprites! I tried keeping the recolors at least somewhat interesting
recolors of death
Demon king recolors
God/False Prophet recolors
Dragons and Wyverns:
we got both! due to the nature of the sprites most of them, I will probably never make full sprite sheets and be single character sheets instead. Most of them are simply too big.
small wyverns, large wyverns, rideable wyvern, baby dragons, asian dragons, large dragons, recolored MV dragons, small wyvern/flying serpants
baby version of the MV default dragon:
cute fat lil' dragons:
Asian serpent dragons:
upright walking dragon; kind of my take of the old RPG maker 2000 dragon both winged and wingless
I gave them more interesting colors based on region. Desert, tundra, volcano and ocean. (so far)
Winged serpants/small wyverns/flying snake types: these where pretty simple in design, and I know some people asked for flying snakes and serpant-esk dragons. I do want to make different kinds at some point but for now, I hope these will be sufficient enough
There are some more sprites I made that aren't included in here, mostly additional animations for the animals seen here. They are not finished, but I wanted to get these out before Christmas, and I'm hoping I'll get to see some creative additions and use from the community.
I do plan on maybe getting some more animals out, but probably not for at least a week or two at the time of this posting. I've already got some animal suggestions, but I would like to hear what would be the most popular/requested from the community, and I hope this shows I can do more then just some simple tree recolors and edits lol u w o;
