How to Make Human in Little Alchemy 2

There’s just something about that comforting deep purple screen, the cool tempo of the background music, and the loops of dragging and dropping that draw you in time and time again to the wild world of Little Alchemy 2.

You’ve created all sorts of satisfying combinations, from Ocean to Dragon, but there’s still one you’re interested in cracking the code of. And who would have thought it would be your very own kind, the humankind that is.

If you’re lost and have exhausted all of your other possible combinations of theories on how to make a human in Little Alchemy 2, you’ve wandered upon the perfect place to solve your mystery.

Buckle in though, once you’ve created human life a whole new door of creations awaits!

1. Order Up, Human Combo!

Your tiny little virtual human will be here in no time, perhaps you’ll even name it, but first, we’ll need to cover the basics and layout the proper Little Alchemy formula.

There are quite a few combinations out there, as you may have seen a pattern in this game, but we’ll be looking at the easiest way to make a human in Little Alchemy 2. 

To kickstart this good ol’ formula, we’ll need two elements: Life and Clay. But of course, those each come with their own set of directions, so let’s circle back to that once we’ve created each one separately.

2. That’s Life!

For this combo, we’ll be needing a volcano and primordial soup, we’ll create them one at a time and at the end, combine the two. 


It’s getting hot in here!

  • Fire + Earth = Lava
  • Lava + Earth = Volcano 

Primordial Soup

Did somebody order the soup of the day?

  • Water + Water = Puddle
  • Puddle + Water = Pond
  • Pond + Pond = Lake
  • Lake + Water = Sea
  • Sea + Lava = Primordial Soup

Combine the volcano element with the primordial soup element to make LIFE!

3. Time to Seize the Clay

Now for this piece of the recipe, we’ll have to create mud and sand, so let’s get those virtual hands messy!


Any sticks in here?

  • Water + Earth = MUD!


Let’s make a castle! 

  • Air + Air = Pressure
  • Pressure + Earth = Stone
  • Stone + Air = SAND!

Drag and drop the mud or sand onto the other and behold the beautiful clay!

And now, a drum roll would be appropriate for this highly anticipated merger, you may click and ploop together the clay and life to present your very own virtual human

Way to go there Mad Scientist, you’ve created human life! Is it intelligent? That’s up to you to find out, keep stirring up curious mischief with those combinations and see what crazy things you can discover!

To get you started here are some quirky bonus human combinations, but this is hardly even scratching the surface to what creations there are to be explored!

A simple life easy going Beekeeper

Save the bees!

  • Atmosphere + Cloud = Sky 
  • Sky + Fire = Sun 
  • Sun + Rain = Rainbow 
  • Rainbow + Plant = Flower
  • Flower + Animal = Bee
  • Bee + Human = BEEKEEPER! 

The Awesomely Cool Librarian 

Never underestimate the ultimate dopeness of a librarian. 

  • Earth + Earth = Land 
  • Land + Land = Continent 
  • Continent + Continent = Planet 
  • Fire + Planet = Sun 
  • Fire + Fire = Energy 
  • Energy + Sun = Solar Cell
  • Sun + Solar Cell = Electricity 
  • Air + Air = Pressure 
  • Earth + Pressure = Stone 
  • Air + Stone = Sand
  • Fire + Sand = Glass
  • Glass + Electricity = Light Bulb 
  • Water + Earth = Mud
  • Mud + Stone = Clay
  • Water + Lake = Sea
  • Fire + Earth = Lava
  • Lava + Sea = Primordial Soup
  • Earth + Lava = Volcano
  • Volcano + Primordial Soup = Life
  • Life + Clay = Human
  • Human + Light Bulb = Idea
  • Idea + Human = Philosophy 
  • Fire + Stone = Metal 
  • Metal + Sand = Gold
  • Gold + Metal = Safe
  • Safe + Philosophy = Container 
  • Water + Air = Mist
  • Air + Planet = Atmosphere 
  • Atmosphere + Mist = Cloud 
  • Energy + Cloud = Lightning 
  • Human + Lightning = Hero
  • Hero + Human = Story 
  • Story + Container = Book
  • Book + Container = Library 
  • Human + Library = LIBRARIAN! 

Side Note & Fun Fact

Some of the other combinations to make a human involve the element of time, which makes sense!

Time is a tricky thing though, outside and inside the video game world, within this game time is actually unlocked according to your progress.

We’ve gotta tip our hats to the creators for this clever pun, you get to unlock the element of time based on how many elements you have discovered (100 is required) thus spending quite a bit of time on the game. Pretty genius! 

The very basic rundown of the human formulas involving the element of time is: 

Time + Animal = Human

Don’t have the animal element quite yet, here are some easy steps to achieve it!

  • Earth + Earth = Land
  • Water + Water = Puddle
  • Puddle + Water = Pond
  • Pond + Water = Lake
  • Lake + Water = Sea
  • Fire + Earth = Lava
  • Lava + Sea = Primordial Soup
  • Earth + Lava = Volcano
  • Volcano + Primordial Soup = Life
  • Life + Land = ANIMAL! 

Time + Monkey = Human

In need of a monkey? Who isn’t?! 

  • Tree + Animal = MONKEY! 

Also in need of a tree? Got you covered:

  • Soil + Life = Plant
  • Plant + Time = TREE!

Snaps! We’ve accomplished so much during this time, now you’re able to go on and generate all sorts of wacky and neat combinations!
