|“||The extraordinary Ghazt only manifests itself when conditions are absolutely perfect. Imbued with the Ethereal power of Plasma, its sleek frame and ability to become intangible are ideal for slipping in and out of places unnoticed. However, these traits also make it vulnerable to accidental interdimensional travel. It plays well with the other Monsters, but just like a cat, it sometimes prefers to be alone... or in the company of others of its kind.||”|
|— Monster Bio|
Ghazt is a single-element Ethereal Monster with the Plasma element. It is found on Plant Island and can be teleported to Ethereal Island once fed to level 15. Ghazt was added on June 16th, 2013 during Version 1.1.7. It is best obtained by breeding Entbrat and T-Rox. By default, its breeding time is 1 day and 12 hours long. Ghazt has a great coin production on Plant Island and is comparable to Rare Entbrat. Although it is recommended to get other Monsters with higher coin production.
Once teleported to Ethereal Island, Ghazt takes 10 hours to incubate. You can then breed it with any other Monster to get more. Like all single-element Ethereals, Ghazt has excellent shard production, bested only by other single-element Rare and Epic Monsters. Note that Ghazt has a slightly lower rate than Reebro, Jeeode, and Humbug.
Instrument: Electronic keyboard
Ghazt softly patters one of five floating orbs which makes electronic keyboard sounds. However, on Ethereal Island, it plays a string+synth like sound with damping, also containing a quiet “twinkling” sound. To play its Plant Island tune on any piano, do this pattern:
C C D E♭ F G, C D E♭ F G F E♭ D C, C C D E♭ F G G, C C D E♭ F E♭ D E♭ D C.
(Next octave higher) C C C D E♭ C, C C D E♭ F G, G G F E♭ G, G G F E♭, C C C D E♭ C, C C D E♭ G, G C F E♭ G, G G F E♭ D, (repeat whole song)
On Plant Island, Ghazt has a plasmatic ambiance accompanying its song.
On Ethereal Island, Ghazt mainly plays descending arpeggios and long notes.
The arpeggios that are made are based of the chords of the main verse of ethereal island. The chords are E Major, A Major, f# minor, and B Major. Also, the low notes play the roots of these chords
However, the notes on the seconds track are different. With the first bar switching between: B and F#, on the second bar: B and G#, On the 3rd: B and E, and on the 4th (last) we have B and Eb (D#)
The Ghazt can be bred using a combination of an Entbrat and one three-element monster. Possible combinations:
There is roughly a 1% chance of breeding this successfully. It is uncertain whether some combinations work better than others, but for the shortest wait time per attempt, the Entbrat and T-Rox combination is recommended. According to statistics, doing 70 attempts gives you a 50% chance of successfully breeding at least one Ghazt; and doing 690 attempts gives you a 99.9% chance of successfully breeding at least one Ghazt. However, there is also one breeding combination that worked for me when the others did not which is:
This worked for me with only one wishing torch lit. Try to experiment with combinations of three-elements and four-elements with a few wishing torches and you'll get Ghazt in no time.
The Ethereal Breeding Bonanzas improve your chances of breeding a Ghazt. These increase the chance of breeding an Ethereal by 500%, i.e. 5 times the usual odds.
The Rare version of any monster can be used for breeding instead of the common version.
Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing more than one of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase its happiness by 25%. If there's a Unity Tree on the island, items don't need to be near the monsters. Below are the things liked by Ghazt:
- Entbrat (requires level 9) ()
- Whisp (level 9) ()
- Babayag Tower (level 15)
- Squeed Statue (level 16)
- Crumpler Tree (level 19) ()

Used in Breeding
|Ghazt is used in the following breeding combinations:|
Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in Coins per minute or Shards per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness) and Monster Level. Each Monster also has a maximum amount of income it can hold at a time. Increasing the Monster's Level also increases this limit.
Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the shards earned per hour, as well as the maximum shards earned.
|The food per level table:|
More info can be found in the Feeding article. Note: with the Ethereal Island update, Ghazt can be fed up to level 15, at which time it can be placed on Ethereal Island, instead of Gold Island.
Possible Monster Names
To see all possible names for Ghazt, see Monster Names.
- Ghazt's name comes from the middle-English word "ghast", meaning "to frighten" or "having a weird appearance". It's related to the word "ghastly" and the spelling is also associated with the word "ghost", all possibly relevant to the monster's appearance. The Ghazt may also be based on Bast, the Egyptian cat god because of its appearance.
- The Ghazt, like any other Ethereal monster, can only breed on Ethereal Island.
- The line "The rare Ghazt only manifests itself when conditions are absolutely perfect." had been changed to show "The extraordinary Ghazt..." in the Version 1.3.3 update to avoid confusion with the addition of Rare Ghazt.
- The sentences "All the Ghazt really wants to do is return home to... wherever it is it came from. No one is entirely sure." were removed from the Ghazt's description after the addition of its home, Ethereal Island.
- The orbs which float around the Monster are meant to resemble balls of yarn, fitting the Ghazt's cat-like features.
- The Ghazt is the only monster that can appear on Plant Island that never touches the ground.
- The reward for placing Ghazt is much lower than other Ethereals. While the rest reward 50,000-100,000 , or some , Ghazt only rewards 5,000 and 50 .
- Between June 13th, 2018 and June 20th, 2018, the Ghazt was discounted by 75% to celebrate its 5-year anniversary since its debut.
- One of the default names for Ghazt, “Aethuri-awl”, is a pun on “Ethereal”. "Aethuri-awl" is also a level in the "Thumpies" game
- When the Ghazt first came to the game, you needed one in order to power up the Gold Island Wubbox, however, you could only feed it to level ten when you would receive the message "This Monster is satisfied for now, and will not eat any more food."
- Now the Ghazt only powers up the Wubbox on Ethereal Island and is not able to go to Gold Island, because that role is not meant for Ethereal Monsters.
- In Furcorn's Jelly Dreams, Ghazt design looks a little different: its skin is brighter, more saturated, furrier, and almost completely visible.
- During the Light Island Trailer, when a Ghazt on Plant Island had its orbs blown away by a Spunge, a cat-like "meow" can be faintly heard. This implies that Ghazts are able to meow like cats, since they also look like cats.
- A group of Ghazts is called a 'maelstrom'. (Monster-handler Matt in BBB ExtraLife 2020 stream)
- This is the first ethereal to have an epic variant, the second being Reebro.
- Ghazt is related to to the Double Element Magical, Xyster. Part of a family group known as the 'Ghazkin'.
