Unreal The subject of this article appeared in Unreal Mission Pack: Return to Na Pali. The Nali Cow is a bipedal animal native to Na Pali. It is named after its herders, the Nali, who use it as livestock and keep it near their settlements. It appears in Unreal and Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Cow is a harmless animal often found in the Nali's farms. They can be heard mooing and seen lumbering along on their two legs. When startled or attacked, their mooing becomes louder.

They are comparable to cows found on Earth, mostly because of their mooing. It is likely that the Nali utilize them as working animals. Though the cows may be reared for meat and leather, the peaceful nature of the Nali makes this unlikely. The lack of a visible udder indicates the cows are not used for their milk.

In Unreal, Nali Cows are peaceful animals that appear as adults and smaller calves. They will never attack the player regardless of whether they are being attacked. Instead, they resort to running.

Unreal Tournament[edit | edit source]

"When the militant Nali were driven from their homeworld they brought the only domesticated beast they knew of- their local livestock. By using Pavlovian techniques and heavy cerebral modification they are training their cattle to fight instead of graze."
Epic Bonus Pack description

Nali Cows were introduced to the Liandri Grand Tournament as Nali WarCows by a militant branch of the Nali around 2293 (UT Bonus Pack 1). The normally passive creature's aggressiveness has been modified and the cows themselves have been equipped with a harness to carry weapons. The Nali WarCows fight individually, without forming teams.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

"I don’t remember who proposed that there should be, like, background animals, but I remember making a sketch for a Nali cow, and being disappointed that the version in-game was only given the polygon budget for two legs and a tiny tail, instead of the vaguely stegosaurian proportions I wanted."
