Ants are small insects which act as living inter dimensional gateways. By touching an ant one is transported to an alternate dimension specific to that ant type. These dimensions feature great riches as well as massive dangerous monsters. The monsters in the ant dimensions are used to create Big Bertha. There are four types of ants: brown ants, red ants, rainbow ants and termites. The ants were realeased into the world with the other creatures when Namtar completed his ritual of chaos.
