Super Auto Pets is an entertaining auto-battler filled with all sorts of different items and foods. Take full advantage of our tips and tricks in this guide so you can understand how they work and use them well too. While some tips are simple, other ones may give you an idea for your team synergy.
If you haven’t already visited our Super Auto Pets guide on All Pets & Upgrades, be sure to check it out to start theory-crafting strategies. Unlike a large number of animals to learn, there aren’t quite as many items and foods. But, it can still be tricky figuring out when to buy them and when not to.
This is why I threw together this list for anyone trying to find some quick information online. Especially since there are vague item descriptions that often don’t provide enough information. And there are a couple of items that have extra benefits like Chocolate that aren’t explained in-game.
Some quick info worth mentioning is that the paid Expansion Pack #1 doesn’t have any extra food or items. However, Expansion Pack #2 includes completely new food types and items to learn. You can check the second section below to see them.
The only other important bit to point out is for players new to Super Auto Pets. If you’re still learning this auto-battler, it’s useful to know that there are tiers for each item and food similar to the pet tiers. Therefore, as you get further, you’ll come across better types with each tier for different strategies.
Broccoli works well if you’re trying to buff a pet that has high attack but low health. Or if you’re just looking to make a pet even tankier.
Give a pet +3/-1.
Fried Shrimp increases your attack unlike the Broccoli food type while still lowering your health slightly. This works similarly, however. Whether you’re trying to create a powerhouse of a pet or just get a little extra attack.
Tier 3 Items and Foods
Give a pet Cucumber. (Gain +1 Health at end of turn.)
This is a good item to buff a weak pet or create an especially strong one early on for the late game. It was a bit stronger in the beta as a tier 2 item, but it got bumped up.
Swap Attack and Health of a pet.
Used on the right pet, you may completely flip how they’re typically used for interesting results.
Tier 4 Items and Foods
Give a pet Cheese. (Attack for double damage, once)
This can make a deadly pet even stronger for annoying late-game teams. Otherwise, you can use it to catch a low attack pet up to speed.
Give a pet Grapes. (Gain +1 gold at the start of every turn.)
Grapes can help get that extra gold you need if you don’t mind keeping it on a pet that won’t benefit from a better item. Or pair it with a pet that already gives gold per turn. Such as the Hamster in Expansion Pack #2.
Tier 5 Items and Foods
Give a pet Carrot. (Gain +1/+1 at end of turn.)
This is a small upgrade from the Cucumber that may come in a little late with it being in tier 6. However, you can still try to buff a pet for the rest of tier 6.
Give a pet Pepper. (Health does not go under 1. Removed after taking damage.)
Prioritize using this only on a weak pet since the description implies you’ll lose it after taking any damage. Unless you want to guarantee a heavy hitter stays alive.
Give 3 random pets +2 Health.
Take advantage of buying Stew if your pets are a little too squishy. Just make sure you don’t waste it if you plan on replacing them quickly.
Give 3 random pets +2 Attack.
The Taco is opposite Stew by focusing on increasing attack instead. Similar to Stew, try not to waste it if you’re going to replace your pets soon.
Tier 6 Items and Foods
Give 2 random pets +4 Attack.
The total increase of +8 Attack across your roster is always useful, but you never know which pets will get it. This can be risky while still being a strong food.
Give 2 random pets +4 Health.
The Orange is opposite the Hot Dog by focusing on Health instead. As always, this can help beef up your team if they’re squishy.
Give a pet Popcorn. (Summon a random pet from the same tier after fainting.)
Try to only give this item to a high-tier pet to take full advantage of it. Otherwise, you may end up with a pet that doesn’t hold up in tier 6.
