Tigers are a type of built-in enemy creature in ZZT. They follow the Lion's movement logic, while adding the ability to shoot bullets or stars.

The chance of a Tiger shooting on a given tick is (⌊P2 / 3⌋ / 9), where P2 is equal to Firing Rate - 1. As such, the most powerful Tiger that can be created in the default editor, with P2 = 8, will shoot about 22% of the time. If the Player is within two horizontal spaces of the Tiger, it will opt to shoot in a vertical direction - otherwise, if the Player is within two vertical spaces of it, it will shoot in a horizontal direction.
