"Wah-ha-ha! Did you think a little thing like the end of the world was gonna do me in? The earth tried to swallow me up once or twice, but I just pried its jaws open and climbed back out!"
― Duncan Harcourt (Final Fantasy VI)
"Uninhabited planet. No resources, no supplies. No apparent way home. A lesser man would die here, I'll be home by Christmas."
― Dr. Ivo Robotnik (Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie)

Also Called

  • Natural Survivalist
  • Survival Instincts/Wits
  • Survivalism
  • Survivalism/Survivalist Intuition


The user has innate knowledge and intuitive understanding in survival and all skills applicable to survival, thus allowing them to easily survive in any and all environments, actively prepare for emergencies, including possible disruptions in social or political order, on scales from local to international. Survivalists often acquire emergency medical and self-defense training, stockpile food and water, prepare to become self-sufficient, and build structures (e.g., a survival retreat or an underground shelter) that may help them survive a catastrophe.

This also includes clusters of natural disasters, patterns of apocalyptic planetary crisis, or "Earth Changes", anthropogenic disasters, general collapse of society, financial disruption or economic collapse, global pandemic, or widespread chaos or some other unexplained apocalyptic event.
