The Bean is a Maxis-made early creature, present in the final game. They are very simple creatures, and are newly evolved from the ocean.

The only mean of attack of the Bean is a weak bite, and its only mean of socialization is an unimpressive song. They have no special features, but are one of the few Maxis creatures with proboscis.

Many players make parody versions of the bean, likely due to its humorous appearance and usually being the first seen creature during the creature stage.
