- This article is about the Monsters of My Singing Monsters. For the Monsters of My Singing Monsters: Dawn of Fire, see Monsters (Dawn of Fire).
Monsters are the dominant creatures of the Monster World and the heart and foundation of My Singing Monsters. As of now, there are currently 241 known species of monsters to buy or breed, excluding the monsters from Dawn of Fire. Each of these creatures has distinctive voices or sounds that they use to contribute to the various songs found in the game. Once monsters are collected, they can be muted and unmuted in order to create a unique mix. In addition, a Time Machine can be purchased to speed up or slow down the tempo, or a Recording Studio to change the voices of most types of monsters entirely.
Every monster has the ability to produce Currency; most produce it in the form of Coins () or Shards (), while few can produce it in the form of Diamonds () or Treats (). The former ability can be magnified by the monster's Happiness, a special trait that varies with every monster species.
Throughout the monster worlds, monsters are divided into classes that categorize monsters based on similar qualities or characteristics. There are twelve classes across the monster universe, including those found in My Singing Monsters' prequel, Dawn of Fire: Natural, Fire, Ethereal, Seasonal, Supernatural, Legendary, Celestials, Mythical, Magical, Rare, Epic, and Dipster. The full list of monsters is below, including which Islands they are available on.
Alternately, the monsters available on a given island can be found on their respective island pages: Plant Island (), Cold Island (), Air Island (), Water Island (), Earth Island (), Fire Haven (), Fire Oasis (), Psychic Island (), Faerie Island (), Bone Island (), Gold Island (), Ethereal Island (), Shugabush Island (), Tribal Island (), Wublin Island (), Mirror Islands (), Celestial Island , and Composer Island ().
My Singing Monsters is published in multiple languages. A table of translations can be found at Monster Translations.
The icons of each monster can be found on the Monster Icons page.
Main Article: Natural Monsters
Natural Monsters are the basic class of monsters encountered in My Singing Monsters. Each of them is associated with one or more of the five base Elements: Earth (), Cold (), Water (), Plant (), and/or Air (). Only four out of five of these elements will appear on the natural islands, with some exceptions depending on the island.
- Main article: Fire Monsters
FIre Monsters are a class of monsters associated with the element of Fire (). Originally, the Fire element did not exist at all until the Tribal Island was added to the game, manifested by the elemental Kayna, who couldn't breed nor be bred, and was originally only thought to be a teaser for the prequel game, Dawn of Fire, where Fire was a Natural element. However, 2.2.4 sparked the release of Fire Haven, where Kayna was able to be bred with other Natural Elements allowing for the creation of 7 more monsters exclusive to Dawn of Fire. And then, in 2.3.0 Fire Oasis. Later, the Magical Islands were released. In Psychic Island, Rootitoot was discovered; In Faerie Island, Ziggurab was discovered; and in Bone Island, Thrumble was rediscovered. The only Triple Element Monster with Fire that is currently missing, is Sooza/DoF.
- Main article: Magical Monsters
Magical Monsters are a class of monsters separated into currently three subgroups that each have their own element which they are Psychic (), Faerie (), and Bone (), and they inhabit a Magical Island that allows monsters that element. As with Fire Monsters, these are harder to breed and take longer to hatch than common Natural Monsters, possibly due to them only recently having established contact.
The Magical class can be seen as dominant over the Natural and Fire classes since monsters with elements from both belong to the Magical class.
Main Article: Ethereal Monsters
Ethereal Monsters are a class of monsters with their own unique qualities and their own island, Ethereal Island. Each monster is associated with one or more of the five ethereal elements: Plasma (), Shadow (), Mech (), Crystal (), and/or Poison (). The Single Element Ethereal Monsters obtained by breeding a Triple Element Monster with a Quad Element Monster on the Natural/Mirror Islands. These monsters are hard to acquire since there is only about a 1% chance per try of breeding them on the Natural/Mirror Islands. It is also very difficult to successfully breed Double Element Ethereal Monsters, which are only found on Ethereal Island. Like Natural Monsters, each "parent" gives a certain element in the gene pool for the "child", which only works on Ethereal Island.
Main Article: Seasonal Monsters
Seasonal Monsters are a class of limited time monsters and they are only available to buy or breed during specific times of the year. These monsters manifest one of six different elements which go along with the six seasonal holidays observed in MSM: Spooktacle (Halloween), Festival of Yay (Christmas), Season of Love (Valentine's Day), Eggs-Travaganza (Easter), SummerSong (Summer) or Feast-Ember (Thanksgiving). Seasonal Monsters are considered more difficult to obtain than Quad Element Monsters but not as difficult to obtain as Single Element Ethereal Monsters. Seasonal Monsters can be acquired outside of their specific season through certain events and the scratch egg ticket, which is available in the nursery once per week although, it is very rare to get one this way.
These monsters were once called "Limited Time Monsters", then "Special Edition Monsters". As of the v1.2.5 update, the developers changed the class from "Special Edition" to "Seasonal" in their information.
Main Article: Rare Monsters
Rare Monsters are special counterparts of the Common Monsters in My Singing Monsters. Similar to their Common version, these monsters have the same song and animation (except the Rare Wubbox), elemental type, breeding combination, and general size. Compared to Common Monsters, Rare Monsters have longer breeding times, have different Likes, and they generate more Coins/Shards. In addition, Rares comprise only one class. To illustrate, Rare Seasonal Monsters and Rare Natural Monsters are not two separate classes, rather they are both part of the same class, "Rare."
As of the 2.0.0 Update, Rare Monsters are no longer always available for purchase in the StarShop on the Natural Islands. According to the MSM Facebook page, the availability of Rares in the StarShop was reduced in order to "preserve their special status and the challenged involved in collecting them."
Since October 5th, 2016, Rare Natural Monsters are put on a rotational basis every Wednesday through a Daily Deal called a Rares Duet. This allows two particular Rare Natural Monsters to be available for purchase in the StarShop for a limited amount of time.
Main Article: Epic Monsters
Similar to Rare Monsters, Epic Monsters are counterparts to the natural and seasonal monsters in My Singing Monsters. Just as with Rares, Epics can only be bought or bred during limited time events. Unlike Rares, Epics cannot be used for breeding.
Main Article: Dipsters
Dipsters are a class of monsters that sing single notes as they pop out of their holes in the ground. They can be bought in the Market with Keys. These monsters do not take up any beds and can be bought on any Natural Island (i.e. Plant, Cold, Air, Water, Earth Islands), their respective Mirror Island, both Fire Islands, and Ethereal Island for a certain amount of keys. Only ten of each type of Dipster can be purchased per island.
Main Article: Legendary Monsters
Legendary Monsters are a special class of monsters, all of which manifest one element, Legendary (). These monsters have their own unique qualities; for example, each Shugafam has its own special guitar or drums and a special hat, while the Werdos are the only monsters in-game that can tell a story in their lyrics. Like the Ethereal Monsters, the Shugafam also have their own Island, Shugabush Island. These monsters must be bred from a Shugabush (apart from the Shugabush itself), which is very hard to breed. They are still not as hard to obtain as the Ethereal Monsters. The Werdos cannot be bred but may be obtained for 100 Relics each.
- Main article: Mythical Monsters
Vita Exclusive Monsters were only available on Playstation Vita devices and were later added on mobile devices. These monsters manifest one element, Mythical (). Currently, only two of these monsters exist. In addition, Mythical Monsters are included on the official class list. They were exclusive to the PS Vita version only, not accessible to everyone until the PS Vita was discontinued and the Mythicals were added on mobile devices and are now accessible to everyone.
Main Article: Supernatural Monsters
Supernatuarl Monsters are a special class that includes twenty species: the Wubbox and the Wublins, and all of them manifest one element, Electricity (). The Wubbox and the Wublins do not follow the same rules as the other monsters; they must be activated by placing other monsters inside them. They cannot be bred. Instead, they must be bought from the Market. All of the Wublins are located on their own island, Wublin Island, but the Wubbox is only found on the Natural Islands/their respective Mirror Island and Ethereal Island.
Main Article: Celestials
The Celestials (similar to the Wublins) are dormant, and only wake up when fed enough eggs. The dormant Celestial statues can be bought from the Market for diamonds () on Celestial Island only. There is a limit on 5 of each type of Celestial.
Main Article: Breeding
- The Breeding page contains a quick reference for breeding monsters.
- Visit the Breeding Structure page for some discussion on which combination is "best".
- When choosing which monsters to breed, it does not matter which monster is on the left or right column.
Main Article: Eggs
Each monster, excluding the Wublins, Celestials, and Dipsters, have their own unique Egg, so even in egg form, it can be identified. Rares and Epics have their own egg designs now as well as the retained certain effect to the shell, almost like a shine. Epic monsters have binds and a radiant glow around the egg.
Main Article: Feeding
A monster's level increases every four meals it is fed, up to a maximum of twenty levels. (Food can be made in a Bakery.) When a monster's level increases, so do the number of coins it earns per minute, the maximum amount of coins it can hold, and the amount of food necessary for each of its meals. It also gets bigger within its space(s) on the island, at levels 4, 10, and 15. At level 4, it can be used for breeding. Reaching level 15 will allow a monster to be placed on Gold Island, or sent to Ethereal Island or Shugabush Island, depending on the monster.
Main Article: Likes
Each monster, excluding the Wublins, has at least four different things that they like on each island. For every unique object that they like that is placed near them, that monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing two of the same item near a monster will still only increase its happiness by 25%. How quickly monsters earn coins is based on their Happiness.
Normally, for something to increase a monster's happiness, the two objects must be placed side by side. However, purchasing a Unity Tree from the Market (available at level 16) will allow decorations and monsters to be placed anywhere on an island, including into Storage or a Hotel, without affecting the monster's happiness level.
Main Article: Critters
Critters are not considered a class of Monsters; They are the small creatures flying around, crawling on, and peeking around corners of the various Islands. They only appear for aesthetic and entertainment purposes.
- If one could use real-world science to study monsters, all Natural Monsters would be the same species. This happens because, biologically, only monsters of the same species are able to breed and almost always produce a fertile offspring (another Natural Monster).
- Rare Monsters would be of the same species as Natural ones: they would be, as expected, variants of their common counterparts, much like dog or cat breeds.
- Ethereal and Legendary Monsters come from dimensions parallel to the Monster World, so science isn't able to explain them at all.
- In order to send secret messages to players, BBB uses an English-based language called Monstrous, which is implied, according to in-game lore, to be invented by the Monsters themselves.
- As of now, the only one letter a monster’s name doesn’t start with is X.
