Default Appearance

The Coyote has a large chest connected to four stubby legs and a bushy tail. The head appears small with large open ears and a wide black nose sticking out of its head. The eyes are slanted, with a slightly blue sclera in the corner of the eye, the pupil is completely black with a white dot above its middle. The Coyote's original form has a brown coat with a tan-ish white belly and purple inner ears. The color of the purple inner ears cannot be changed into a different color.

  • The first hint of this animal was a rock etched upside-down with the word "Canidae", which is the taxonomic classification for the family of the species Canis Latrans (the Coyote).
  • The play action is supposed to resemble a dog chasing its own tail.
  • The Coyote has a chain of plushies, the Coyote Plushie, Giant Coyote Plushie, and the Exclusive Coyote Plushie.
  • The Western Collection was released in the Diamond Shop to celebrate the arrival of the coyote.
  • There was a glitch when a Royal Cape was wore on a Coyote, it appears with a snowflake pattern instead of the default pattern. This has been patched.
  • There was a glitch when a Sunlight Tail Ornament was worn, it changes the coyote's color to blue and yellow, with no eyes. The inner ear color is orange. This has been patched.
  • There was a glitch when Rainbow Armor was worn on a coyote, the entire garment turns into a matte brown color that flashes on and off (about once a second) between the normal default rainbow color scheme and the glitched brown. This has been patched.
  • When a Fox Hat is worn on a Coyote, it appears as a Fluffy Fox Head, however, it keeps the colors of the Fox Hat.
  • There was a glitch when a Lifeguard Ring Collar was worn on a Coyote, the ring floats in midair beside the Coyote, tilted as if the Coyote were wearing it. However, it just appears to be hovering. This has been patched.
  • There is a glitch on the Coyote where a Cupcake Hat worn on the Coyote does not show up on the Jammer Wall.
