The daring Plinkajou will risk life and limb in the paleontological pursuit of osseous treasures. Its play-hensile tail gives it the agility it needs to climb the tallest boulders and cling to crumbling cliff sides without fear. Not once has a Plinkajou been caught losing its footing! Instead, it descends to its ground-level den of its own accord for playtime, when it bats at its favorite fossilized findings to make tinkling little tunes.
Monster Bio

Description

Plinkajou is a quad-element Magical Monster exclusive to Bone Island. It was added on April 8th, 2020 during Version 2.3.5. It is best obtained by breeding Banjaw and Noggin. By default, its breeding time is 1 day and 8 hours long. Plinkajou has the best coin production on Bone Island.

Song

Audio Sample:

Instrument: Pemade

VST: EastWest RA

Plinkajou plays by tapping the bones on its tail with its feet. The bones chime, making the sound of a Pemade, and the sound gets deeper going from smallest bone to skull. It sounds very dramatic. Plinkajou's song sounds similar to the sound that Carillong plays.

Breeding

The Plinkajou can be bred using monsters that combine to provide the following elements, Earth (Earth Element.png), Water (Water Element.png), Fire (Fire Element.png) and Bone (Bone Element.png) without repeating any.

The following pairs of Double Element Monsters can be used to breed a Plinkajou:

However, the combination of a 3-element with a 1-element monster has a higher rate of success:

Out of the breeding options, Noggin + Banjaw would be the most efficient due to the lowest breeding time if you fail to breed Plinkajou.

Breeding a Plinkajou with an Fwog has an increased chance of getting a Plinkajou, due to this also being the combo for Epic Kayna. In order to make it harder to get Epic Kayna, the combo has a higher chance to give Plinkajous as breeding failures. This still happens if Epic Kayna is available or not.

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 Plinkajou:

Egg Consumption

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

1 egg

Note that bred Monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Vessels; active ones do not accept Monster eggs. Also note that inactive Monsters to which you have already disposed the number of Plinkajou eggs that it accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.

Possible Monster Names

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

  • ”Potos” is the genus of the kinkajou
  • ”Ringtayl” can be a reference to the ringtail cat (a procyonid like a kinkajou or a raccoon), it can also reference the ringtail mongoose (a euplerid like a fossa)
  • ”Otringo” is from the animal, olingo, which is also a procyonid.
  • ”Fossa” is from the cat-like carnivore, the fossa. Fossa is also the name of the genus of the striped civet.
  • ”Jangluar” is a corrupted version of the animal, Jaguar.
  • ”Plynx” is from the animal "Lynx" with a "P"
  • ”Saburtoot” is a corruption of the prehistoric animal, the saber-tooth tiger.

Notes

  • Plinkajou's name is a portmanteau of "Plink", "Kinkajou" and possibly "Jouer", the french word for "Play".
  • Despite the Monster having aspects of plants, Plinkajou does not have the Plant Element. The same can be said about Clavi Gnat and Hawlo.
  • Despite having Kinkajou in its name the way Plinkajou plays its song references a natural instinct of cats which is playing with string.
    • It is also worth noting that Plinkajou's yellow hair is similar to a lion's mane.
    • Plinkajou can also have a slight physical resemblance to a cat.
  • Plinkajou swipes at its bones even when it is muted.
