Killer Plant
Turok Dinohunter Foe Killer Plant


The Lost Land



Other nomenclature:

Carnivorous plant

"Not your 'garden variety' vegetable. They have a nasty bite, and can fire needle sharp barbs as well."
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter manual[1]

Killer Plants are large, carnivorous plants that live in the arid portions of the Lost Land.


Killer Plants resemble enormous pink flowers. Upon close examination, however, their "petals" are revealed to be lined with "teeth." The plant itself has long vines and emerge from the base of the stem and is brownish-green in color.


Killer Plants are stationary enemies found in some places throughout the levels of "The Lost Land" and "The Final Confrontation" and are usually seen guarding health and ammo pickups. First-time players of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter may mistake them as part of the scenery, but once they get close enough, the Killer Plant will come alive and attempt to bite them. At a distance, a Killer Plant will fire barbs from its vines which are easy to dodge.

To dispose of a Killer Plant, explosives are recommended, but any high-damage weapon will do. Note that Killer Plants, when dormant, take significantly less damage, so the player may wish to avoid engaging the plant altogether, retreating after collecting the pickups they guard.

With the Hardcore difficulty mode introduced in Night Dive Studios' HD remaster, the Killer Plants can still be considered not that dangerous; even with their faster attacks they are easy to evade or completely ignore.
