This article is about the Monster. For the Island, see Shugabush Island.

Despite originating from a warm climate, the kindly Shugabush is unusually furry. Its penchant for sweet treats is legendary, second only to its skill as a performer. The felt hat that adorns its head, which it has been overheard calling a phay-door-uh, is one of its prized possessions, alongside its trusty mandolin, of course. The Shugabush revels in jamming along with other monsters and is a true embodiment of the spirit of collaboration.
Monster Bio

Description

Shugabush is a member of the Legendary Shugafam class of Monsters, and is found on Plant Island. It was added on July 29th, 2013 during Version 1.1.7. Shugabush was created in collaboration with musical artist, Kristian Bush of the Sugarland duo.

It is best obtained by breeding Bowgart and Clamble. By default, its incubation time is 35 hours long, or 1 day and 11 hours long. Despite being an elusive Legendary Monster, Shugabush does not have a high coin production.

When fed to level 15, it can be teleported to Shugabush Island. Shugabush is required for all breeding combinations on Shugabush Island.

Song

Audio sample:

Voice actor: Kristian Bush
Instrument: Mandolin

This monster's contribution to an island's song is playing its mandolin and occasionally vocalizing "yeah, yeah, yeah" if the mood strikes it.

On the Shugabush Island, the Shugabush does not vocalize, leaving that to the Shugavox instead.

In the Memory game, The Shugabush only vocalizes.

Breeding

The Shugabush becomes available for breeding, or purchase in the Market, at Level 9.

The breeding combination was initially shared by Kristian Bush on his website.

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 Shugabush:

Possible Monster Names

Notes

  • Shugabush’s name is a portmanteau of the band Sugarland and its vocalist Kristian Bush. Also, a "sugar bush" is a stand of sugar maple trees which are tapped for sap to make maple syrup and/or maple sugar, and thus gives a reason why in some languages the monster is translated as "Sweet bush".
  • Kristian Bush collaborated with My Singing Monsters because he became a fan of the game after watching his son play. Bush got in touch with the developers to collaborate on a new character and provided the vocals and mandolin part for the Shugabush.
  • Shugabush was the first legendary monster coded into the game. [1]
  • With the 2013 Anniversary update, Shugabush can now be fed up to level 15, instead of up to Level 10. As of Oct 3, 2013, Shugabush living on Plant Island can be placed on the Gold Island. Previously, attempting to do so displayed the following message: "This Legendary monster can't be placed on Gold Island, because of conflicts in dimensional magic. It's pretty sophisticated stuff." A news update from BBB declared, "The Conflicts in dimensional magic have been resolved! You can now place a Level 15 Shugabush on the Gold Island." Shugabush living on Shugabush Island still can't be placed on Gold Island, regardless of their level.
  • The Shugabush has the highest rate of income per bed in the game, excluding seasonal monsters and Dipsters.
  • Shugabush, so far, is the only monster based off of a real person, and arguably the biggest link between the human and monster world.
  • Shugabush is now the host of a whole new family of monsters, complete with a namesake island, Shugabush Island. This information was discovered via an in-game loading screen, before the island was officially revealed.
  • One of the default names for the Shugabush is "Pilgrim". This is because Kristian Bush started his career in an American folk rock duo called "Billy Pilgrim". Later, Bush joined the band Sugarland in 2002.
  • A Shugabush and one natural monster are needed for breeding for on Shugabush Island.
  • Shugabush is the first of three monsters in the game to resemble a real person, the second being G'joob (who resembles Wilford Brimley) and the third being Loodvigg (who resembles Ludwig van Beethoven).
  • Shugabush's description says "Its penchant for sweet treats is legendary", referencing the band Sugarland; Shugabush is based off of the band's lead singer.
  • For some reason, when a player posts the achievement of hatching a Shugabush, it shows a Shugabass's photo instead of a Shugabush's photo.
  • Shugabush was the first monster to like a path.
  • The Shugabush is one of the few monsters to both sing and play an instrument, along with Congle, Yool, Peckidna, Fluoress, Attmoz, and Glaishur.
  • Shugabush and Shugabuzz both start with the same seven letters, which is the most in the game.
  • Shugabush is the only monster on Gold Island without a Rare counterpart
  • Shugabush is one of the only monsters that doesn't use a VST. It's because it uses a live instrument instead as the creator of the monster brought his mandolin to the studio. Others are the other members of the Shugafam. (Vocals like beatboxing & whistling etc. don't count.)
  • Shugabush's mandolin has an incorrect number of tuning pegs; It should have eight instead of four.
