The Boarilla is a hostile Mob in The Forge event exclusive to Don't Starve Together. They are the strongest mob in the Forge, excluding the Grand Forge Boarrior. It is a large primate, resembling an orangutan with red, spiky armor. It has large forearms and small hind legs.

Boarillas have two attacks: an uppercut and a slam-leap. Before they uppercut, Boarillas will pursue they player they are attacking. Once they get close, they will swipe up, knocking the player back. This attack can't be avoided without speed increasing items and will likely lead to the players death if the Boarilla isn't distracted by someone else. Once the Boarilla gets below a certain health threshold, it will begin to do a leap attack, which will hit all players around where it lands. The Boarilla can also hide behind its armor, which prevents it from taking damage. Like a Snortoise, this can be interrupted by several weapon specials. Like all creatures in The Forge, their drops are dependent on what round it is, as well as what Forge-specific items have already been dropped.

Prototype.png Tips

  • The tossing from the Boarilla's attack can be countered by the Steadfast Stone Armor's knock back resistance.
  • Characters with gear enabling a total of 20% speed increase can outrun the Boarilla without getting hit. Though running 30% gear is still a good option to ensure the kiter from possibly getting hit. Also, it is recommended for the kiter to at least be able to use the Darts, Riled Lucy, Molten Darts, Living Staff, or Infernal Staff to run with.
    • Wes does this efficiently as the Boarilla will aggro at Wes longer than other characters while teammates can pick off other enemies or help attack the Boarilla while it is distracted.
    • Woodie also does this efficiently as the Boarilla will aggro at Woodie as long as Woodie keeps chucking his Riled Lucy onto him. Though timing of the chucking is key to making the Boarilla's attack pattern mess up and can get exploited easily.
      • Based on the connection of the game, the Boarilla may be able to land off a few punches on the kiter.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The Boarilla's spawn code is "trails". However, it is impossible to spawn Boarillas in the regular game, while the Console is not available at all on The Forge servers.
  • Despite the fact that "Boarilla" is a portmanteau of the words "boar" and "gorilla", it resembles an orangutan with the orange fur and flanged face.
  • The Boarilla has tiny birdlike feet which can be seen by looking below its waist.
