The tragra monkey is one of the quickest and most intelligent of lesser primates, and is a favorite Monkey Courier of jungle witches, Beast shamans, and traveling conjurers.

The Flying Courier is a player-controllable version of the Courier. Unlike the personal Courier, it is vulnerable but has access to certain abilities. There are also some stat differences between the two.

The Flying Courier can carry items, and deliver and take items from the base and stash. If the Courier dies, it will drop its inventory.

Purchased couriers must be shared for your allies to use it.

The Courier is immune to Magic and Splash Damage, and cannot be targeted with abilities, including Physical abilities. On death, it will drop the items it's carrying, and its death will be announced in the game.

The Courier can benefit from flat stat bonuses from items, such as Max Health or Mana, Armor, and Movement Speed. However, due to item sharing mechanics, your own Courier can only benefit from your own items.

While the Flying Courier can receive additional Max Health, the amount of damage it takes when hit is scaled with its Max Health, therefore it does not change how many hits it can take before dying. The Flying Courier also cannot receive additional Health Regeneration.

It cannot carry a Bound Eye, Doom Bringer, Token of Life, or Bananas. It also cannot pick up Runes or Token of Sight.
