Appearances in Spore
Rogue creatures are mostly uncommon. They are powerful creatures with high stats and 250 health. They are aggressive towards any regular creatures, other rogues, or the player's creature in hard difficulty. They can be befriended or killed for 100 DNA points.
Unlike other creatures, they are not part of a nest, they are only ever encountered alone. Some of them are skittish and may flee away from the player, and some of them are curious. If the player's creature befriends a rogue, any regular creatures or epic creatures of the rogue's species will become allies with the player and their species.
The criteria the game uses to select a rogue creature are as follows: All rogue creatures must have high combat and social abilities, and they must have a combined total of at least 12 levels in each type, with a minimum level 3 in every stat except bite and sing. Other skills (e.g. Glide or Sneak) don't even matter, but because of the high criteria, a rogue creature often has many such abilities.
There are several pre-made Maxis creatures that can spawn as rogues. They include:
Rogue creatures only appear in the Tribal Stage as pets if they were part of the player's pack in the prior stage, Creature Stage, and advancing to the Tribal Stage with them. They will no longer appear in the later stages, Civilization Stage and Space Stage.
Rogues also appear in Spore Hero, less vicious and more civilized than Spore versions.
