|Examine text||I wonder if it uses the 'Crane' technique.|
Note: As with any invisible boost, it does not grant abilities above the player's level (e.g., the ability to catch new kinds of fish). It does, however, increase the success rate of catching fish.
While the player is fishing, the Ibis will forage tuna and swordfish. The Ibis produces fish when the player fishes at any fishing spot, and can hold up to 30 fish. (however this is very unlikely without renewing it a few times) Each time the Ibis catches a swordfish, you gain 10 Fishing experience. This is unaffected by the use of swordfish gloves or the sacred clay harpoon. Players do not gain Fishing experience each time the Ibis forages a tuna.
Interestingly, whenever you are aided by your Ibis companion while practicing the art of Barbarian fishing using a Barbarian rod, or net fishing inside the Piscatoris Fishing Colony, it tends to only produce swordfish. The Ibis also catches only swordfish while the player is fishing in Shilo Village, Living Rock Caverns and on Jatizso.

|A scroll for a ibis familiar.|
Fish rain is the special move of the ibis. The special move makes fish (raw shrimp, bass, cod, and mackerel) fall out of the sky. Fish Rain can be activated by having a Fish rain scroll in the player's inventory. Using the scroll costs 12 special points. It can be used 5 times before the player will have to wait for the special to raise. If cast in a player owned house it will not generate fish.
- The ibis's examine text, "I wonder if it uses the 'Crane' technique," is a reference to the Crane style of many martial arts and to the movie "The Karate Kid".
- Many birds that look like the ibis are sometimes referred to as 'Crane birds' because of their long necks and beaks, which could be one reason for its examine text.
- The ibis' special move is similar to that of the spirit spider, fruit bat, and Macaw.
- While fishing, the ibis could sometimes disappear without warning. This has yet to be fixed.
