|“|| Be warned, some of the animals behave like demons. Your people have changed them. They no longer speak to Eywa.
- quote from Beyda'amo.
Controlled animals are the results from neurological experiments on various forms of fauna from the landscapes of Pandora.
The RDA has done various neurological experiments on the Pandoran animals in order to tame them. By putting some kind of device on the back of the animals the RDA has managed to control them. These animals lose their connection with Eywa and become very aggressive against the Na'vi. Most of this research has been done in the Rehabilitation Center in Torukä Na'rìng.
In James Cameron's Avatar: The Game the player has to fight controlled viperwolves and thanators, but scientists have also managed to control direhorses, hammerhead titanotheres, sturmbeests and banshees.
