ディノピテクスキング(Dinopithecus King)は、ARK: Survival EvolvedのDLC Lost Islandのボスです。
The Dinopithecus King is a massive Dinopithecus that stands taller than even the likes of a Rex or Megapithecus. He wears a skull helmet reminiscent of the Rex Bone helmet skin with feathers protruding from the top. His forearms are braced with leaves, large claws, and Amargasaurus spikes, his true appearance highly resembles the Dinopithecus Art with blue hued face cheeks, red butt cheeks and a white skull helmet.
His appearance changes based on difficulty with his facial fur, cheeks and skull helmet being green on Gamma difficulty, Blue on Beta Difficulty and Red on Alpha Difficulty.
This section describes how to fight against the Dinopithecus King.
After being teleported into the boss arena, head down the path, beach on your left, cliff face on your right. You'll quickly come to a short tunnel on your right which leads through the cliff face and into a circular clearing where the boss fight takes place.
The boss is down the far end. Make sure you bring your whole group inside before starting the fight. Once the fight starts, the path leading in will be sealed with a force field. Some tames may get teleported in, others will not (if left outside).
Once the battle with the Dinopithecus King starts, he will jump down from his cliff to attack and call swarms of Dinopithecus to aid him - some of which either riding Amargasaurus or lifted in the air by Sinomacrops. On occasion, the boss will leap up to the top of the surrounding cliffs to barrage the players and tames with Infested Grenades. Eventually, he will jump back to the ground with a slamming attack. Similarly to the Dragon, the Dinopithecus King also has a bite attack that will slowly drain 20% of any dino's health hit by it.
Whatever way you plan to approach the fight, it is very important to know that you must be careful of where you are positioned in the arena while the Dinopithecus King is perched atop one of the surrounding cliffs. If you happen to be in the spot where the king decides to jump back down to, you are at high risk of being dismounted from his slamming attack, putting you in an easy spot for him to finish you off with a following attack. If you are accompanied by other players, make sure to communicate to each other where he is landing to prevent this. If you are fighting solo, an agile mount to help you avoid the king such as your own Dinopithecus or a mount that prevents dismounts entirely like a Stegosaurus are good choices.
With the Dinopithecus King's ability to inflict a percentage-based damage over time effect to your tames, it is advised to take it down as quickly as possible. Sending in an army of strong dinos such as Rex on the boss is a great way to damage him. Make sure to take advantage of the periods where he is vulnerable, as failure to do so can result in a very long battle. If the boss is on top of the cliffs throwing grenades, allow your tames to deal with the swarms of Dinopithecus and Amargasaurus before he jumps back down. Bringing a high quality ranged weapon like a Pump-Action Shotgun can be good for killing off Sinomacrops or damaging the boss while he is above you.
- Rex can be great for damaging and taking hits from the boss and his minions. However, due to their large size and difficulty maneuvering, they are prone to the feces' slow debuff and chip damage from grenades.
- As with any boss, Yutyrannus are valuable for their ability to boost the damage and resistance of your tames.
- Dinopithecus may work as they have decent damage, high attack speed, easy maneuverability, and the ability to wear high armor helmets. If you are choosing to ride one during the fight, bear in mind that the bleed effect from the War cry does not work on bosses.
- A couple of mate boosted Daeodon can be good for healing your tames, so long as 受動的 Healing is enabled.
- A strong imprinted Stegosaurus can be a good mount for survivors, as it is capable of soaking lots of damage from minions in Hardened Plate mode, can fend away attacking Dinopithecus in Heavy Plate mode, prevents the rider from being dismounted by the bosses' slamming attack, and allows the rider to use a weapon of choice while mounted. Be wary of its slow mobility potentially getting further hindered by the feces' slow debuff. Make sure it has veggie cakes
- Mantis are good mounts to deal as much damage as possible since they are able to hold high quality weapons such as Swords. They can potentially do more damage than a Rex. Be wary of the Dinopithecus King's ability to reduce weapon quality to Primitive. Utilizing creatures with a higher drag weight than the mantis such as Rex can be good for avoiding this.
- Deinonychus are great with its percentage bleed damage per tick. Two to three Deinonychus is enough to get the highest possible bleed damage.
- Shadowmanes are an excellent creature to have in the boss fight because of its speed, natural armor, and speed buff. Their thornmail damage debuff can affect bosses, allowing them to deal less damage and prolong the health of all of your creatures by a large amount.
- Therizinosaur are very good against any boss. Their attacks have a large area of effect and knockback. Very effective against Amargasaurus riders.
The Dinopithecus that will rush in to protect their king can easily overwhelm your group and can also throw feces at your tames, inflicting a 10 second slow debuff. Dinopithecus that are being carried in the air by Sinomacrops will pelt you with rocks and grenades that can damage riders directly. Amargasaurus carrying Dinopithecus can utilize their spikes to lay traps on the field which can either reduce armor quality, burn, or freeze your dinos.
The Dinopithecus King himself will utilize the Amargasaurus spikes on his arms to inflict similar debuffs to your dinos as described above, as well as inflict a 20% health drain with his bite attack. His slamming attack can also dismount you from your tame, potentially making for an easy kill if he hits you with one of his following melee attacks.
Every enemy creature during the boss fight gets reduced damage taken.
Luring the Dinopithecus King into one of the caves near the entrance of the arena can be very beneficial as it will block him from jumping to the top of the cliffs around the middle of the arena.
The large Infested Grenades the Dinopithecus King will throw do great damage, but can be destroyed similarly to the floating orbs in the Rockwell fight with a ranged weapon like a Fabricated Sniper Rifle.
- Similarly to the クリスタルワイバーンクイーン the Dinopithecus King has 4 different variations with the 3 difficulty variations and a Dinopithecus King with white gear to more resemble bones and a look more closer to the Dinopithecus Render.
- Both are also Bosses made for Official Mod Maps as well.
- The Dinopithecus King and Dragon bosses share many similar qualities to each other.
- Both bosses have relatively large health pools for island Guardian bosses.
- Both bosses switch between phases of being on the ground and unreachable at a high altitude throughout the fight.
- Both bosses have the ability to inflict a dangerous 20% health drain debuff.
- Both bosses can summon minions capable of directly damaging mounted survivors.
- The Dragon summons Dimorphodons to attack riders.
- The Dinopithecus King summons Dinopithecus lifted by Sinomacrops that throw grenades at riders.
- Dinopithecus King has no battle theme similar to Corrupted Master Controller on Genesis Part 2 and Desert Titan on Extinction
- Shares defeat sound with Megapithecus.
- Can be ridden when force tamed and does not need to poop for attacks.
