It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with all the huggable Pals running around Palpagos Islands. How could they be so cute, yet so deadly at the same time? Here are my picks for the 10 cutest Pals in Palworld that are too adorable not to catch.
10 Cutest Pals to Catch in Palworld
If you’ve always dreamed of cuddling with a cute ferret, Chillet is an adorable (and very long) alternative. From its half-lidded sleepy gaze when getting pets to its little floppy ear flicks, this Ice-type Dragon Pal will win your heart. Chillet is also big on wiggling its tiny arms, whether it’s enjoying a Hot Spring or channelling an Ice attack. It’s arguably the cutest animation in the game. I love assigning it to a cooler, too, just to see it curl up for an icy nap.
Not only is Rooby a great Pal for all your Kindling needs, but this Pal’s design is also one of my favorites. Sporting a big, fluffy red tail, pink bow tie, little dots on its back, and a signature flame on its head, it definitely deserves a spot on this list. Plus, I enjoy the contrast of its sweet, fawn-like appearance and the dangerous flames that it breathes. How could so much fire come from such a tiny Pal?
Lifmunk is a pastel green, bushy-tailed Grass-type Pal bursting with cheer. With its Planting Work Suitability, it’ll seed any Berry or Wheat farm you have placed on your base, jumping with the cutest expression each time it throws the seeds. I also find that its leafy ears and ruby-like eyes just add to its charm. The fact that Lifmunk is so cute makes it hilarious when you use its Partner Skill, which allows the little chipmunk-like Pal to shoot a machine gun from the top of your head. Like I said, they’re cute and deadly.
I find foxes adorable and winter is my favorite season. So, of course I had to catch Foxcicle the moment I laid my eyes on it. This Ice-type Pal’s design is reminiscent of the Huli Jing, a mythical fox spirit with multiple tails. What makes it especially cute, though, is its undeniable fluffiness. From the big, bushy tails to the long-haired tassels coming from its ears, I’m certain Foxcicle would make a great plush toy.
I feel like Nox is an underrated Pal. Most Dark-types don’t get as much credit for their designs. But even Depresso and Daedream have loveable aspects about them. In Nox’s case, this small Pal looks cute, magical, and regal with its cape and purple jewel on its chest. To me, it’d be perfect as a Mage’s pet. I especially love its lavender and white color scheme, along with its large, glowing eyes. The tall ears are also a nice touch.
A Woolipop is basically a walking hug. If you’ve ever held an adorable creature and wanted to bite it, that’s the kind of cute aggression this Pal prompts. It just looks so sweet and cuddly, which is fitting, as it drops a ton of Cotton Candy when assigned to the Ranch. Compared to tiny Lifmunks and other small Pals, a Woolipop is fairly large, and its size only emphasizes its fluffiness. It’d make a perfect pink pillow, if only you could curl up alongside your Pals at night.
While Woolipops are definitely soft and sweet, Melpaca is truly the definition of fluffy. I mean, it even has an attack called the Fluffy Tackle. Aside from its skills, my favorite part of this Pal’s design is definitely the hot pink boots. They scream, “I’m ready for battle,” but also, “I want to look good while doing it.” For me, it’s also tied with Chillet for being one the most adorable — and likely the most comfortable — mounts in the game.
When you combine a tiny teapot with an elephant, you get the cutest Pal combo: a Teafant. This Water-type Pal has my favorite watering animation in the game, as it uses its trunk/spout on your base’s farms and mills. I also love its tiny little legs and how it hops around your base with a bit of pep in its step. Additionally, it elicits a joyful elephant-like snort after every pet.
Somewhat known for destroying bases in raids, Relaxaurus is one of the cutest dinos that you can add to your Paldeck. The contrast between its small, stubby arms compared to the rest of its body is worthy of an “Aww.” As such, it’s also fun to see this Pal transport items by carrying them in its mouth. Being one of the larger Pals that you can catch, Relaxaurus will bend down to receive pets with a delightful smile and it’ll look so adorable when it takes a break in a Hot Spring.
Similar to Chillet, Pengullet has adorable expressions and animations. And it’s the cutest Pal in Palworld. I love watching it transport items by balancing them on the top of its head. And I can’t get over how it flaps its flippers while it hops around. It’s also cute to see it watering your plants via its small yellow beak. No matter what task you have this penguin-like Pal doing, it’ll be so cheerful and loveable all the way through.
Those are the top 10 cutest Pals in Palworld. Unsurprisingly, I keep many of them working at my base, even if higher-level workers are waiting in my Palbox. You can’t help but smile with a Pengullet and Lifmunk around.
