Oddworld Stranger's Wrath Clakkerz Profile

Get clucky with the fowl that populate some of Oddworld's backwater burgs.


Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath

Oddworld's bizarre take on the Wild West will contain a vast and wacky array of denizens, some of whom will rely on the mysterious Stranger for help. The clakkerz are one such group of folk that's constantly beset by those wily outlaws who like to run a-fowl (ha!) of the law. In our ongoing series of spotlights on the strange and wondrous elements of Oddworld, we now take a look at those hapless, flightless townsfolk known as the clakkerz.

The Clakkerz

It's not certain whether the clakkerz actually located and settled in the Mongo River Valley, or if that is just where their trailers and procreation vehicles broke down. It is widely accepted that their sole contribution to society is to annoy and alienate the other species around them. The clakkerz are monuments of mediocrity. They're content to live out their lives selling goods to locals, swindling wolvarks out of moola, gossiping, and complaining about anyone who isn't just like them.
