|“||Child prodigies sometimes have a hard time growing up, but not for the Phangler! Its fins have developed into sturdy legs, photophores into a bioluminescent light show, and it's sprouted an additional mic for a much wider vocal range. Rock on!||”|
|“||This Phangler returned from the Prism Gate forever changed! Whereas previously its dangling microphone-escae lent this Monster the amplification it needed, its entire body has undergone an alteration at the molecular level to become one big amplifier, broadcasting out its dulcet tones from deep within - Extraordinary!||”|
The Phangler resembles an anglerfish with what appears to be a vintage microphone head for a lure that emits bluish-green light. The Phangler itself has a dark seafoam color throughout its entire body with green areas highlighting the spine, tail, lips, and fins. It also has magenta coloring on its belly and tips of its spine. It has a dark purple tongue and its eyes are yellow with green irises. Up close on its lip is a small tooth sticking out of the upper lip.
As an adult, its fins turn into feet, it develops a second microphone lure, and its magenta color on its belly and tips of its spine turns an orange color. It also develops a small beard-like appendage on its chin.
Voice actor: Unknown
The Phangler sings "Na na na na NA na! Na na na na Na NA Na nah. Na na na na na nah..." in an autotuned fashion.
On Cloud Island, developing its second microphone seems to make its voice more echoey. According to the official soundtrack, Phangler sings "Na na na no, na na na no, na na na nooo." except at the point between the 1st and 2nd na, the same sound is copied.
A Phangler can be bred with a combination of Water and Fire. Possible combinations include:
Phangler can be teleported to Cloud Island at level 15 for a reward of 4 diamonds. Teleport time for Phangler is 10 hours.
During limited time events when Prism Gate is open and Phangler is available for transformation on Outer Islands, an adult Phangler can be transformed into one of six different colored variants.
The name Phangler is a portmanteau on the words Microphone and Anglerfish. It might also come from the word "dangle" which is what its microphones do.

Festival of Yay
The Phangler's microphone lure becomes a sprig of holly.
- Despite Phangler being based on a female anglerfish, it has a low-pitched voice.
- One of the Phangler's default names is "Ottotuna". This is a reference to autotune, which its voice sounds like, also the name Otto, and tuna, a kind of fish.
- Otto is the name of a goldfish from a children's book called "Fish Out of Water," who was overfed and turned into a giant.
- In the code, Phangler is simply called "Angler."
- It's unknown how it can be heard during the Yay season, as its mistletoe decoration replaces its microphone.
