Noggins are basically musical rocks. Deeply in tune with the Earth, their simple rhythms echo an Island’s pulse. The sensation of reverberation produced by a Noggin motivates all other monsters.

Noggin is a single elemental Natural Monster.

Description

The Noggin is a small gray golem-like Monster. Characteristic features include large green eyes, three-fingered tan humanoid hands and feet, a rocky outer texture, a completely flat head, and a severe underbite.

Interestingly, Noggins' hearing is very poor, owing mainly to the fact that they have no ears. Instead, this Monster is able to "hear" through sensitive receptors in their hands and feet, which pick up the tiniest vibrations. In this way, a Noggin is able to rhythmically follow the heartbeat of the island and reproduce it by tapping its fingers on the hollow top of its flat head.

When the Monster is idle, it stays in tempo by briefly stroking its fingers across its head and slowly stomping its feet.

Song

Audio sample:

Instrument(s): Cajon/Bongos/Timbales/Congas/Djembe

The Noggin contributes to its Island's song by playing a variety of Latin-based drums (a bass drum on Earth Island), the exact instrument varying from Island to Island. Its hands beat a rhythm onto the top of its head, which creates the sound that it plays. On Faerie Island, Noggin also stomps along with its feet, (thought it could just move its feet and make the sound with its mouth) creating a lower sound.


Breeding

The Noggin is the first monster available for purchase in the market. They can also be produced by breeding an unstable combination between a Noggin and a monster with more than one element.

Earning Rate and Maximum Income

Earning rate is in coins per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.

Feeding Monsters

Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute, as well as the maximum coins earned.

Likes

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 Noggin:

Wublin Egg Consumption

While trying to breed other monsters (particularly monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Wublins can be used to "dispose of" Noggin eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.

Note that bred monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Wublin statues; active Wublins do not accept monster eggs. Also note that inactive Wublin statues to which you have already disposed the number of Noggin eggs that Wublin accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.

While trying to breed other Monsters (particularly Monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Celestials can be used to "dispose of" Noggin eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.

Strategy

To see how efficient Noggin is at generating resources compared to other monsters check:

Name Origin

"Noggin" is a slang for head. As this Monster is mostly head with almost no sign of limbs, its name might come from this informal word.

Possible Monster Names

To see all possible names for Noggin, see Monster Names.

Costumes

Main article: Costumes

Spooktacle

In 2015, the Noggin donned a candy corn costume. This outfit was repeated for the 2016 season, except that it's orange and yellow layers appeared slightly lighter. The 2016 outfit was repeated for 2017-2019.

Notes

  • Concept art

    Originally, the Noggin was called the "BumperStumper" in early designs for the game. By the time the game was released, they changed it to "Noggin". [citation needed]
  • The Noggin is the very first Monster you get in the game, creating a foundation for new Monsters.
  • The Noggin has the highest rate of income per bed of the pure-breed Natural Monsters.
  • The Noggin is the only single-element Natural Monster that does not sing.
  • The Noggin has the same beat/song on Air Island and Plant Island.
  • The Noggin takes the shortest amount of time to hatch or breed, only taking 5 seconds.
    • It only take 3 seconds if using Enhanced Breeding Structures.
  • The Noggin's concept art looks like the current design, except being made of wood instead of rock. Also, the hands and feet are more reddish than the new Noggin we all love.
  • Two possible names for the Noggin are "Narms" and "Shlapp". Narms is a contraction of "no arms", and Shlapp is a play in words for slap.
    • "Shlappa" does however mean "hat" in Russian, so it may be based on that too.
  • The Noggin's name in Russian is "Барабамень" (pronounces as "Barabamen'"). This word is a portmanteau of "барабан" (pronounces as "Baraban", English: drum) and "камень" (pronounces as "Kamen'", English: rock).
    • It also makes a reference to the Noggin's design, which looks like a rock drum.
  • One of the Noggin's possible names is Cephas, which is the name given to the biblical character Peter, and it's the Greek word for "little rock."
  • One of the Noggin's names, Argus, could be a reference to the Ancient Greek Polis, Argos, or the one-hundred eyed giant, Argus Panoptes.
    • Similarly, the default name Boreas also references a Greek deity, although Boreas was the god of the North Wind rather than anything earth-related.
  • One of the possible names, "Chunk" refers to the fact that this monster is a piece of rock, and chunk means a lump or large portion.
  • One of the possible names, "Rockmaninoff" is a reference to Sergei Rachmaninoff, a Russian pianist and composer.
  • Noggin's breeding time on Natural Islands was reduced from 15 seconds to 5 seconds, starting from around the time of SummerSong 2019. This was done to improve the Tutorial experience. Noggin’s breeding time was then changed on every other island, specifically Fire Haven, to 5 seconds in Version 2.3.4.
  • On Faerie Island, Noggin might be using its feet to make sounds as a part of its song. This is the very first time that this has happened, as it usually only taps its head. It might be using its jaw, and tapping its feet to match the jaw sounds, though, as its jaw moves every time its feet do.
