|“||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.||”|
|— Monster Biography|
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.
Voice actor: Unknown
The Shrubb's contribution to an Island's song is a percussive rhythm, produced by beatboxing and buzzing its lips together.
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 Shrubb:
- Bowgart (requires level 9) ()
- Reedling (level 9) (, , )
- Fire Bush (level 5)
- Saggle Tree (level 8)
- Razzli Tree (level 12) ()

Used in Breeding
|Shrubb 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" Shrubb eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.
|Monster Egg||Wublin 1||Wublin 2||Wublin 3|
|1 egg||3 eggs||6 eggs|
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.
|Monster Egg||Celestial 1||Celestial 2||Celestial 3||Celestial 4||Celestial 5||Celestial 6||Celestial 7|
|8 eggs||6 eggs||5 eggs||4 eggs||4 eggs||3 eggs||2 eggs|
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 Shrubb eggs that Celestial accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.
