piebald.png

 
Piebald Xeros have splotches of fur lacking pigment. These patterns of white fur are completely random, and can cover a lot of the Xero, or very little. It can also effect their flesh, resulting in flesh with different colored patches. Piebald Xeros may also have heterochromia: two different colored eyes, or eyes with several different colors within them!

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them a Sky Melon.
Melanistic

Melanistic (Anomaly)

Species: Xero

melanistic.png

 
Melanistic Xeros have an overubundance of pigment in their skin and fur, resulting in darker fur colors, flesh colors, and can even have reverse countershading; these are the only Xeros found to have darker colored bellies. Only melanistic Xeros can have sceleras (eye whites) darker than the iris! Their fur, flesh, and eyes can still be any color, but must be on the darker side. Melanistic Xeros can also be a solid dark color, with no countershading.

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them a Melanistic Fruit.
Leucistic

Leucistic (Anomaly)

Species: Xero

leucistic.png

 
Leucistic Xeros are similar to albino ones, but have only a partial loss of pigment, rather than a complete lack. They have a pure-white or off-white coat with no countershading, but can have dark-colored markings and markings of any color, not just ones that match their flesh hue.

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them a Blanch Berry.
Albino

Albino (Anomaly)

Species: Xero

albino.png

 
Albino Xeros lack pigment in their fur, and thus have a pure-white or off-white coat with no countershading. Any markings they have in their fur will be pale, and the same color as their flesh (orange in this example). Flesh, eyes, and markings must all be the same hue, but can be varying shades. Their flesh can still be any color, it is not limited to shades of pink or red like an Earth animal.

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them a Albino Fruit.
Split

Split (Notable)

Species: Xero

split_orig.png

 
Generally, a Xero's flesh is all the same color, so visible areas like the inside of their ears, tongue, nostrils, and paw pads must all be the same, but this special trait allows their skin to be different colors! It's not just limited to two colors either, each ear, paw pad, etc. could all be different colors! Each differently colored body part may only be one solid color, with the exception of any part that crosses the sagittal plane (midline) of the body, which may be split in half and half colors (tongue, pouch, or overall body skin if hairless trait is used). This trait also allows heterochromia; two different colored eyes!

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them an Irida Orb Fungus.
Hairless

Hairless (Notable)

Category: Fur Mutation
Species: Xero

hairless_orig.png


Hairless 
Xeros are very rare. Their fur is very useful for regulating their temperature and protecting them from their environment, so its not common at all to see them with fur missing. The hairless trait can manifest in different ways; from just a hairless tail or belly, to only hair on the top of the head, to even completely bald! The color of skin where their fur is missing must be the same as the other visible flesh on their ears, tongue, and paw pads, but it can vary in different shades.

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them a Mult Fruit.
Tundra Fur

Tundra Fur (Tundra)

Category: Fur Mutation
Species: Xero (Tundra subtype)

tundrafur.png

 
Tundra Xeros can have extra fluffy fur, called Tundra Fur. Often shown as a super fluffy neck and chest area like a mane, but can also be extra fluffy on the undersides of the limbs, the tail, sides of the face, etc.

How to get this trait
This trait can only be added to Tundra Xeros, or by using a Tundra Vial on a Xero that has the "Glitched" status.
Fur Pads

Fur Pads (Notable)

Category: Fur Mutation
Species: Xero

furpads_orig.png

 
The fur pads trait gives a Xero extra fluffy feet that covers their paw pads, like a rabbit or fennec fox! This adaptation can help protect their paws against extremely hot or cold conditions.

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them an Astera Thistle.
Horizontal Pupils

Horizontal Pupils (Notable)

Category: Eye Mutation
Species: Xero

horizontalpupils.png

 
Though it's very rare, some Xeros may have horizontal pupils instead of the standard round or oval ones. This strange adaptation gives the Xero a wider field of view, making them very hard to sneak up on.

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them a Virgule Mushroom.
Hollow Eyes

Hollow Eyes (Hollow)

Category: Eye Mutation
Species: Xero (Hollow subtype)

holloweyes_orig.png

 
Life in a world of little-to-no light can present several obstacles, arguably the most important being how to sense the enviroment. Hollow Xeros have developed eyes that feature significantly larger pupils and a highly efficient tapetum. These features enable them to operate effectively in the darkest of conditions and give their eyes a soft, reflective sheen.

How to get this trait
This trait can only be added to Hollow Xeros, or by using a Hollow Vial on a Xero that has the "Glitched" status.
Slit Pupils

Slit Pupils (Unusual)

Category: Eye Mutation
Species: Xero

slitpupils_orig.png

 
Some Xeros may have thin, slit pupils instead of the standard round or oval ones. This is an uncommon adaptation, but the Xeros that have this style of eye tend to have even stronger night vision. 

How to get this trait
This trait can be added to your Xero by giving them a Eyecap Mushroom.
Tufted Ears

Tufted Ears (Standard)
