A Battle Morph is a morph used predominantly to fight or attack. The Animorphs each acquired morphs specifically for the purpose of fighting the Yeerks and standing against Hork-Bajir warriors. Each member of the Animorphs generally had a primary and secondary battle morph.

  • Though given the morphing power, several members of the Auxiliary Animorphs are never identified with their battle morphs: Craig, Erica,  and Jessie are among these Animorphs. Possible morphs they may have had were a Silverback Gorilla, Rattlesnake, Panther, Wolf,

    Jake morphing jaguar

    Golden Eagle or possibly one of the morphs used by the other Auxiliary Animorphs.[1]
  • Andalites do not often use a battle morph, since their own bodies are well-equipped for battle (Although Ax has sometimes morphed for battle, such as assuming a rattlesnake and cheetah morph when missions required him to fight in front of humans).
  • Although not listed above, many of the battle morphs are shared amongst the Animorphs. For example, all of them possess Wolf, Polar Bear, and Hork-Bajir morphs. Cassie, Tobias, and Ax also have Elephant morphs while Marco has a Rhino morph in addition to Rachel and Jake respectively. However, Cassie is the only member of the main Animorphs to lack a unique battle morph of her own, as the original four human members all have wolf morphs while Jake, Rachel and Marco each have unique tiger, bear and gorilla morphs.
