|“||Found much less frequently than the common Riff, this Rare Monster nonetheless offers great insights into the habits and behaviours of this secretive species. For instance, it's now known that all Riffs share a symbiotic relationship with their guitars, which are actually living creatures as well! Riffs exchange the foods they collect with their toes for whispered messages of affirmation about their musical performances. Go team.||”|
The Rare Riff is a green Monster with three toes per foot, a violet mohawk, two pairs of wings of a bat, and traces of feathers on its body. Its has two rings on each of its feet, while its claws have one ring on each "index claw". The wings are also somewhat larger than the common counterpart's wings, and also are in pairs.
The Rare Riff, like the common Riff, has a guitar monster that shares symbiotic relationship with each other, but has physical differences from the common Riff's guitar Monster. It is more rectangular, with an eye at the top and a "mouth" that appears on the bottom of the guitar. It is also orange with spots like the skin of the common Riff. Its guitar resembles the head of a Tyrannosaurus rex.

The following pairs of 2-element monsters can be used to breed a Riff:
However, the combination of a 3-element with 1-element monster has higher rate of success for getting a Riff instead of one of the parents as the outcome:
- Of these, Congle+Noggin is the best combination, as it has the lowest average breeding times in case of breeding failure.
There is also a small chance of producing a Riff or Rare Riff from a failed breeding attempt, using an Riff and a non-Single Element Monsters.
The Rare version of any monster can be used for breeding instead of the common version. In addition, it is possible to breed a Rare Riff and a regular Riff together. The outcome will always be a Riff, and if a Rare Riff is available at that time, it may result from this combination.

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.
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.

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.

- The Facebook post about the Rare Riff's introduction proves that the Rare Riff and its guitar Monster both mutually agree with each other, with the Rare Riff feeding the guitar monster while it plays it to contribute to the monster music.
- It is worth noting that Riff and Rare Riff seem to have reversed colour schemes: while Riff is orange and has a green guitar, Rare Riff is green and has an orange guitar.
