Battle pets will fall into one of 10 possible pet families. Each pet family has its own strengths and weaknesses when up against certain other battle pet families.[1][2][3][4]

Note on battle pet attacks

Attacks each have their own "family", which may not match the family of the pet, and may be from a variety of different families on one pet. For example, a Harpy Youngling is a Pet type humanoidHumanoid pet whose attacks are all of the Pet type flyingFlying family type, meaning it will take extra damage (Battle pet strength) from Pet type undeadUndead attacks and less (Battle pet weakness) from Pet type critterCritter attacks (because its family is Pet type humanoidHumanoid), but will do extra damage (Battle pet strength) to Pet type aquaticAquatic creatures and less (Battle pet weakness) to Pet type dragonkinDragonkin, rather than more to Pet type dragonkinDragonkin and less to Pet type beastBeast (because its attacks are Pet type flyingFlying type rather than Pet type humanoidHumanoid).

Strengths and Weaknesses

The diagrams below show in a variety of ways how families are strong or weak against each other. The two left diagrams show what family is strong against another by having a red arrow point (Battle pet strength Strength) to the family that takes extra damage and a gray arrow (Battle pet weakness Weakness) pointing to the family that takes less damage.

The right side diagram shows this in a different form, the large icon shows how it is affected by other families. The upper left is a family that attacks it strongly (Battle pet weakness Weakness defending), the upper right is a family that it attacks strongly (Battle pet strength Strength attacking), the lower left is a family that attacks it weakly (Battle pet strength Strength defending), and the lower right is a family that it attacks weakly (Battle pet weakness Weakness attacking).
