|“||Versatile Scups can readily adhere to most any surface when the need arises. Generally, it prefers to remain on the Earth, as its Water-filled body is quite heavy. The Scups' remarkable feet use Air to produce a call that can travel vast distances.||”|
The Scups is a peculiar creature, to say the least. Its body, which has a vague resemblance to a heart, is colored ocean blue. It has two yellow trumpet-like horns on its head. Its two purple and blue striped legs are somewhat long, and end with plunger-like feet.
When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo by slowly marching in place, avoiding making any suction noises.
Instrument(s): Suction cups/plungers
The Scups's song sounds like suction cups getting pulled off of hardwood and getting stuck back on, or plungers (or something rubber just as sticky).
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:|

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 Scups:

Used in Breeding
|Scups is used in the following breeding combinations:|
Wublin Egg Consumption
While trying to breed other monsters (particularly monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Wublins can be used to "dispose of" Scups eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.
|Monster Egg||Wublin 1||Wublin 2||Wublin 3||Wublin 4||Wublin 5||Wublin 6|
|8 eggs||4 eggs||2 eggs||4 eggs||10 eggs||1 egg|
Note that bred monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Wublin statues; active Wublins do not accept monster eggs. Also note that inactive Wublin statues to which you have already disposed the number of Scups eggs that Wublin accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.
Celestial Egg Consumption
While trying to breed other Monsters (particularly Monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Celestials can be used to "dispose of" Scups eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.
|Monster Egg||Celestial 1||Celestial 2||Celestial 3||Celestial 4||Celestial 5||Celestial 6|
|4 eggs||3 eggs||3 eggs||3 eggs||2 eggs||1 egg|
Note that bred Monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Celestial statues; active Celestials do not accept Monster eggs. Also note that inactive Celestial statues to which you have already disposed the number of Scups eggs that Celestial accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.
To see how efficient Scups is at generating resources compared to other monsters check:
The name "Scups" may come from the portmanteau of suction cups that the monster has. In addition to this, the Scups "scoops" its feet off the ground to create the suction cup sound.
