|“||Finally - the Rare Shellbeat has been revealed! This especially bashful being only emerges once in a blue moon, so great care must be taken to make sure it feels welcome among its fellow monsters. Once it's settled in a jam session, the Rare Shellbeat has been known to produce pearls of exceptional quality from its unique shell, which it gives away as presents! This curious quad-element often contemplates the nature of the monster world, and the possibility of alternate universes. If it's learned anything, it has so far decided to keep the secrets to itself.||”|
The Rare Shellbeat is blue, suiting the habitat in which it usually lives. The spots are now a lime-ish green. Also, the webbing in between its fins and the fins on its arms are now black. In between its two shells is a gray-ish purple color. It has the same types of limbs, belly and face, although seen in blue hues. Its head is now quite cephalopod like, being that it is now more cone shaped, and even has squid-like fins near the tip of its head. There are also quite a few sea stars on the monster, on its shell, and some on its drum kit.
One of the more noticeable differences from Common Shellbeat is the bivalve shell instead of a univalve shell. Another difference is that the drumkit is also more yellowish. Seen on its head, there are now also visible gills just above its head fins. When observed carefully, the symbol on the drum is a different pattern - the same pattern as the Runic Path on Ethereal Island, which may show a connection with the ethereal realm even though they're a natural monster.
- See Shellbeat.
The following pairs of 2-element monsters can be used to breed a Shellbeat:
However, the combination of a 3-element with 1-element monster has a higher rate of success for getting a Shellbeat instead of one of the parents as the outcome:
- Of these, Spunge+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 Shellbeat or Rare Shellbeat from a failed breeding attempt, using a Shellbeat 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 Shellbeat and a regular Shellbeat together. The outcome will always be a Shellbeat, and if a Rare Shellbeat 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.
|The food per level table:|
More info can be found in the Feeding article.
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 Rare Shellbeat:
- Shellbeat (requires level 9)
- Stritch Skin (level 6)
- Leafy Sea Dragon (level 20)
- Crumpler Tree (level 19) ()
