My Singing Monsters

The willowy Shrubb performs continually in a graceful ballet. This statuesque monster has astounding stamina, ensuring a steady source of modulation and sprayed saliva for the entire island chorus.

Description

The Shrubb has a green bush for a body plus a head, twiggy arms, legs, feet and hands and vine-like growth resembling a beard on its chin. It also has a small shrub on its back.

When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo with a simple pattern of arm and leg movement.

As it plays rhythms with its mouth, the Shrubb hops and buzzes its lips and the arm movement becomes more complex, making movements that somewhat resemble plucking the strings and working the frets of an invisible double-bass.

Shrubb's egg is dark green, with green warts and yellow flowers on it.

Song

Audio sample:

Voice actor: Unknown

The Shrubb's contribution to an Island's song is a percussive rhythm, produced by beatboxing and buzzing its lips together.

Breeding

The Shrubb can be produced by breeding monsters with the elements of Plant and Earth.

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 Shrubb:

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" Shrubb eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.

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 Shrubb 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" Shrubb eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.

Costumes

Main article: Costumes

Spooktacle

In October 2014, the Shrubb disguised itself as a clown with a red vine on its beard, orange body with white spots, blue legs with purple patches and clown shoes on it's feet. The Shrubb repeated this outfit from the 2016-2019 seasons.

Yay

For the 2015 Yay season, the Shrubb was feeling a bit jolly and put on a Santa hat. This was repeated for all subsequent seasons.

Notes

  • The Shrubb is the lowest maximum-income monster of the two-element monsters.
  • The Shrubb is the only two-element natural monster with Plant to not sing.
  • The Shrubb's idle animation is the same as its first track singing animation on Plant Island.
  • The Shrubb's legs aren't really bent. It's actually crouching, and you can see it standing upright in a few Twitter posts and on Fire Haven, along with the trailer for SummerSong 2020.
  • A group of Shrubbs is called an 'attitude' (MSM Live 2019/01/11)
