|“||There's more to the Rare Spunge than meets the eye: It is a full-scale mutation of the regular monster, recognizable by its superfluous eye, limbs and leaf sprig. In lieu of fresh clean water, it emits a viscous ooze at passersby which, if they're unlucky enough to get some in their mouth, is absolutely revolting in flavor. In an unusual twist of fate, the Rare Spunge suffers from dry eyes, and must hydrate them by being especially blinky.||”|

Rare Spunge is a triple-element Rare Monster. It was added on November 21st, 2014 during the 1.3.0 2nd Anniversary Update. As a Rare Monster, it is only available at select times. It is best obtained by breeding or by purchasing from the StarShop. Its breeding combination is the same as its common counterpart. By default, its breeding time is 15 hours and 30 minutes long. Although a Rare Monster, Rare Spunge still does not have high coin production.
- See Spunge.
Any kind of breeding attempt which includes a regular Spunge may fail, and give a Rare Spunge as a result instead of the regular Spunge. This includes all of the breeding combinations that can't ever work in the usual way. If you're trying to get a Rare Spunge as a result of breeding failure, the most effective combination is to breed a regular Spunge with a 4-element monster, since the offspring will always be a Spunge except in the rare case that an Ethereal monster is the result. (This assumes that the probability of getting a Rare Spunge instead of a regular Spunge doesn't depend on which monsters are used for breeding.)
Another good strategy is to breed the Common monster with a single-element monster, as single-elements take the least time to hatch.
The Rare version of any monster can be used for breeding instead of the common version.

- All monsters that appear on a certain Island.
- All monsters with a specific element
- All monsters with a specific theme.
- A seemingly random selection of a handful of Monsters.
In particular, they are likely to appear during Special Occasions.
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 Spunge:

Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in Coins per minute and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness) and Monster Level. Each Monster also has a maximum amount of income it can hold at a time. Increasing the Monster's Level also increases this 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.
