Cooldown is the term given to the amount of time a tool takes, after its use, to recharge and become usable again. In the Creature Stage, abilities including combat abilities (such as Bite and Strike) have cooldown timers, with Bite being least, then Spit, Strike, and Charge having the longest cooldowns. In Galactic Adventures there is also a similar effect with Captain weapons.
