Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A large ape-like creature with white fur, found in the snowy wilds.

Yetis are large, dangerous creatures found only in savage areas that invade fortresses to destroy buildings. One should always use caution when engaging them as their immense size allows them to easily incapacitate dwarves.

When players embark on a glacier, they should expect to encounter yetis. Due to a glacier's general lack of animal life, the map will almost always spawn one yeti right after another, making them a hazard for an early fortress. However, since they have a relatively low population number, there will be no more than 5-10 yetis before they become extinct in your biome.

Though many take the yetis to be violent, demented beasts, some have been tamed (with great difficulty) and even integrated into dwarven society. This can be attributed to their joyful and cheery nature; often they can be seen playfully tipping over workshops and 'accidentally' crushing anyone working within. Many dwarves admire this warped sense of humour and the yeti's obvious love of beer, wine and spirits.

When faced with a mighty sasquatch, yetis become immense wimps, despite the Sasquatch being barely any different from them. Dwarven scientists think this is caused by the high contrast between a sasquatch's white skin and brown fur, which makes a simple-minded yeti panic.
