The Raptor Elk is a creature in Brütal Legend that inhabits the Western Continent.


Raptor Elk are mammal/reptile hybrids that wander around the Western Continent in large numbers, and are often one of the first animals the player encounters. Like most animals, they can be ridden via use of the Shocker move.


The Raptor Elk is the second record The Hunter holds in the "Overslaughter" hunting side mission.

There is a stampede of Raptor Elk during the mission "Kill Master's Mercy" whislt Eddie Riggs is taking Ophelia to Kill Master for healing.

In the side mission "Chasing the Plague" a Razor Girl named Val tasks the player with thinning a herd of tainted elk. The player must kill 8 "tainted" elks within 1 minute and 30 seconds before they reach the rest of the herd and spread the disease.


Raptor Elk can be summoned (in groups of 4) via The Call of the Wild Solo when the Megastage is upgraded to either Level 2 or 3. There is no way of knowing prior to the match which one is designated to summon Raptor Elk. The only way to discover which Stage Level will summon Raptor Elk is to play the Solo while The Stage is at Level 2 and see what creature is summoned. If Raptor Elk are designated to Stage Level 3, 4 Ground Urchins will be summoned. Otherwise, The Solo will summon Raptor Elk as intended. As with all creatures summoned by The Call of the Wild Solo in Multiplayer, the designation has a chance of changing after the creatures despawn.

Eddie riding a bloodied Raptor Elk.

Eddie can leap on the back of a stunned Raptor Elk and ride it around at great speed, using its charging attack on his enemies. At first the animal will walk at Eddie's normal speed but, after covering some ground, it will boost and run faster. Stopping, hitting something or attacking an enemy will reset it's speed back to the walking state. Raptor Elks summoned through the Call of the Wild solo count as friendly units, and are always ridable.


  • Although The Hunter claims they are carnivorous, most of the time they are seen eating grass and won't even attack the player. This is likely a developer oversight, however, considering his personality, it's possible the Hunter might have lied about this fact to make his feat seem more impressive.
