The Bullymong is a four-armed, gorilla-like creature that is able to climb tall structures and pick up objects and toss them at the player. They are fast and agile, making hitting them a problem at times. Their weak point is their head, but it may be hard to hit it because of its small size. All but one variants of Bullymongs are vulnerable to fire, and when low on health, they can only crawl and use swiping attacks with their hands.
In True Vault Hunter Mode, Bullymongs have the Savage prefix attached to their names. Some other name changes for Bullymongs include:
- Monglet - Savage Monglet
- Brat Bullymong - Savage Brat Bullymong
- Bullymong Slinger - Bullymong Highlander
- Adult Bullymong - Savage Bullymong
