Available To Players who have spoken to Coalessa

Pets are creatures found around LEGO Universe that can be tamed by a player. Pets can be used to dig up gold treasure chests, bones, and activate Pet Bouncers.

Pets cannot be tamed until the player talks to Coalessa in Pet Cove, who teaches how to tame pets. Once this is done, a pet can be tamed by interacting with it and completing a building puzzle. Once a pet is successfully tamed, the player can submit a name for it, which is either approved or rejected by the Mythrans. Until the name is approved, the describing text simply identifies the pet as belonging to the player (for example, "BizzareFlyingAmigo's Warthog Pet"). If and when the name is approved, it will appear above the pet for all players to see. If the name is rejected, the chance to rename it will be given next time it is brought out.

Initial Pets

Overall, there are nineteen original pets. The chance to tame a lion comes a reward for taming the 18 other pets first.

Pet Brick


Pet Brick

On April Fools' Day 2011, LEGO Universe published a false news article titled The Newest LEGO Universe Pet! featuring the Pet Brick, a red 2x4 brick pet with a ridiculous amount of abilities.

The Pet Brick has eight studs and is red, expressionless, and lacks ears. In addition to digging up treasure chests like all other pets, the Pet Brick is advertised as being capable of fighting alongside players, giving advice to stuck players, and fetching players' slippers and newspaper. It also helps players build by holding onto pieces, moving heavy walls, fitting into almost any model, building at 80 bricks per second, and receiving instant model moderation. Additionally, the Pet Brick has a power stare attack that deals 9001 damage points, dislikes Ke$ha, is un-smashable, has brown 1x1 brick feces, and likes exclamation points.

Although advertised as coming out that April, the Pet Brick was merely an April Fools' Day joke and will not be released.


  • At one point in development, pets were planned to be modular, but this concept was dropped sometime in the late Pre-Alpha.
  • There was also originally a concept of pet food.
  • Pets were originally intended to be more complex, with features such as skills that could be learned by the pet over time.[2]
  • Flying and biped pets were also planned, but were scrapped for unknown reasons.[3]
