There are some basic types of body plans that often occur. Some types of each body plan are described. The body types are listed in order of frequency when spawned from random chances. Some candidates may not actually be efficient.

Two-Armed JumpersEdit

Winged JumpersEdit

Winged Jumpers use two wings that may either jiggle without touching the ground to get momentum or push off of it, respectively in these videos: Flaps Long Wings

Front-Armed JumpersEdit

These have forward-facing arms instead of wings and include the Scorpion and Green Bat. Not all of them jump though.

Frog-JumpersEdit

These may not look like frogs, but always use their limbs in a froglike manner. Note that while all frogjumpers frogjump, the reverse is not always true. Folding Trees therefore are not frogjumpers. Mothlike is, however. The bottom wings bounce it off the ground.

WormsEdit

For a list of worms, go here.Edit

Worms are, like their namesake, primarily made of repeating segments. Worms have three subgroups: normal Worms themselves are roughly cubic in segmentry; Ribbons are thin and rectangular; and Springs are long and rectangular. They can use many braintypes.

RibbonsEdit

Ribbons are graceful flat sheets like this gray rolling ribbon.

SpringsEdit

These are arranged in either an accordion or a triangular helix.

Single Joint-Powered CreaturesEdit

These have one large, usually asymmetrical segment that launches the entire creature forward. An example is shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ri9f8d_isg0 Because the only requirement for being a single joint-powered creature is the presence of the large segment, creatures can often have other body plans at the same time, like the final creature (at 7:41) in this video.

Gravity SnailsEdit

For a list of gravity snails, go here.Edit

These may or may not be able to move in high gravity, but they resist gravity breakage well and always move by twitch-cheating. They are one of the few exceptions for cheating because few other creatures can survive in high gravity and gain much fitness.

Flat-Backed Gravity SnailsEdit

These resemble crabs like the 1000x Gravity Snail below.

Armored Gravity SnailsEdit

These have a heavy shell and are more fragile because at higher gravities they may crush themselves with their shell.

TreesEdit

For a list of trees, go here.Edit

Tree-shaped creatures resemble the dancing tree and usually have a poor sense of direction. The usual form of movement is resemblant to a flailing worm, with random jumps. Trees are formed from an L-system and so always demonstrate fractality if symmetric.
