|“||One day as the monsters were tunneling underground, they stumbled upon an immense underground vault containing several of the mysterious objects known as the Wubbox. Very little is known of their origin or purpose, save a few observations:
After being incubated in the nursery, sample analysis of the box's exterior indicates that it shares traits with every known monster species - in fact, it even has specialized compartments with an otherworldy shrinking technology. The box is also imbued with an elemental energy unfamiliar to those on the surface - a shocking discovery, to say the least.

|“||Eureka! The Wubbox awakes! As it turns out, this extraordinary electric elemental is vital to the life processes of the colossal island monsters that the other singing denizens call home. The shrunken monsters used to power up the creature report that inside is as fun as any playground they've ever seen, so they are happy to stay indefinitely.
The robotic chirps and whistles it uses to express itself can take some getting used to, but eventually become a beloved and inextricable part of the island's tune. Besides, it's all the rage in "current" music.
The specific breeding characteristics of the Wubbox have not yet been studied.

|“||In a startling turn of events that none in the Monster world could have ever predicted, more of the mysterious Wubbox have been discovered deep in the subterranean recesses of Ethereal Island. This discovery, which flies in the face of the Monster's previous designation as Supernatural, has sparked intense debate among Monster classifiers, with some proposing a new theoretical 'Superethereal' class be created.
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, however, is that this Wubbox variant is powered up in the same way as its Natural island counterparts... by 'boxing' other Monster species inside!
Gather some intrepid Monster volunteers and see what happens when you 'box' them!

|“||Eureka! The Wubbox awakes!
While this 'Superethereal' Monster retains the Elemental affiliation with Electricity, its very presence on Ethereal Island is baffling at best. This finding could have far-reaching implications for the Monster World, suggesting a closer relationship between Ethereal Island and the other islands than previously imagined. Was Ethereal Island ever part of the main dimension? Could it be that all of the Colossals once lived together in a state of unity and harmony?
As these and other mysteries continue to tantalize, the Wubbox enthusiastically sings and dances alongside its Ethereal friends, and even produces Shards too!
|— Active Description on Ethereal Island|
|“||What many have suspected for a while has finally been confirmed - The Wubbox is indeed the creator of the Wublins! This Monster admitted to being inspired to create life based on remembrances of an otherworldly visitor that seemed to come from the heaven above. Yearning to create a Supernatural Family of its very own, it tapped into its intrinsic elemental Electricity to devise the power to zap Monster eggs. Content with the diversity and Wublins it has created, the Wubbox has settled in to become a permanent resident of Wublin Island and has invited its brethren to share in the experience of being Boxed, just like Natural and Ethereal Monsters before them!
Only Wublins that have been awoken may be Boxed.
|— Inactive description on Wublin Island|
|“||Upon being powered up, the Wubbox inspected Wublin Island from up close for the first time, as it only ever done so before through secretive, arcane methods. Pleased with the Electricity-themed decor of the island but deciding it needed a little sprucing up, the Wubbox has made it possible for Decorations to be placed on Wublin Island for the first time. It has also lifted the limit on the number of unique Wublin statues on the island at a time, so multiples of the same Wublin can now exist. When not cavorting with its Supernatural family, the Wubbox can be found wistfully carving the initials W.B. + G.V in nooks and crannies out of sight... Not sure what's that about.||”|
|— Active description on Wublin Island|
Wubbox is a Supernatural Monsters available on all Natural Islands, Ethereal, Gold, and Wublin Islands. It was added on May 10th, 2013 during Version 1.1.6. Wubbox is obtained in a way unlike other Monsters. It first must be purchased in the Market for 75 million or 150,000 on Ethereal Island. Then it needs in incubate for two days. When hatched, it is placed as its Box form, which is activated by boxing all required Monsters.
On Natural Islands, Wubbox has a high coin production, comparable to Rare or Epic Quads and Ethereal Monsters. On Ethereal Island, it has the lowest shard production. On Wublin Island, it costs 5,000 and has the same rate as the other Wublins.
Instrument: Electronic dubstep (DUBST3P) kit
Sound Pack: RankinAudio - Ultimate Dubstep 3
The Wubbox's tune is a loud and vibrant electronic dubstep that makes a big difference to the song of the island it is in. (for Track 1)
When not playing its dubstep (not muted though) it will still make other sounds, listen closely! The Wubbox may sometimes fist-pump to make a brief hi-hat cymbal sound, jump to make a thump or swirl its orb around to make a synthetic sound. (for Track 2)
In the Gold Island, the tune is shorter and becomes more harmonious with those of the other monsters. In Ethereal Island, the Wubbox plays only once in the whole song.
When first placed on an island, the Wubbox is a box that does nothing until you box one of every regular monster that exists on that island. On the natural-element islands, it takes in the natural-element monsters; on Ethereal Island, it takes in Ethereals; on Wublin Island, it takes in Wublins. This requirement can be bypassed by the use of diamonds - 450 is required to activate a fresh Wubbox, but this cost is reduced by 30 for each monster placed inside. When the collection is complete, it turns into a singing and dancing robot that can be fed to increase its levels, has likes to improve its happiness, and earns coins like a normal monster. Only one inactive Wubbox may be placed on any one island at a time.
Once a Wubbox is placed on an island, when another placed monster is selected, an additional option to Box that monster appears. Additionally, in the Nursery, a third option shows up after you place the Wubbox, so now you can Place, Box, or Sell. Thus, monsters can go straight from the nursery into the Wubbox without being placed on the island first.
After a monster has been boxed, it doesn't count towards the happiness of other monsters, even with the help of a Unity Tree. For example, suppose you have a Ghazt on Plant Island that's at 100% Happiness, in part because you have an Entbrat there as well. But if you Box that Entbrat, your Ghazt's Happiness will go down to 75%. You would need to get another Entbrat to restore the Happiness of the Ghazt.
For most intents and purposes, once a monster has been Boxed, it is gone. It doesn't generate coins, and it doesn't make other monsters happy. If it was at Level 15 and had appeared on Gold Island, Boxing it on its natural island will make it disappear from Gold.
Gold Island Activation
Once the Wubbox is leveled up to level 15, it can be placed on the Gold Island. Once placed on Gold Island, it becomes a box again and requires one of every Natural monster type (that is, not the limited edition monsters or Rare and Epic monsters) available on Gold Island. The Wubbox remains active on its original island - remember the Gold Island is a different dimension. Again, only one inactive Wubbox may be placed on Gold Island at any one time.
In order to box monsters on Gold Island, they must be placed on the island - unlike the Nursery, there is no option to select it from the list of unplaced monsters. This is not an issue for bed management since Gold Island has unlimited beds, but clearing the physical space for monsters on very crowded and populated Gold Islands could be a concern.
Just as any monster placed in the Wubbox is removed from their island permanently (and on Gold Island) - Gold Island monsters placed in the Wubbox are also removed from Gold Island (and their home islands).
If the Wubbox is removed from Gold Island and then re-placed once more, it returns to its inert box form and must be activated again. As for the other islands, the Wubbox activation may be sped up using diamonds, though each monster missing costs 300 , for a grand total of 9,000 for a fresh Wubbox.
It takes about 17,000,000 food to feed each monster (Not including Wubbox) to level 15.
Ethereal Island Activation
The Wubbox may also be found on Ethereal Island, but it must be purchased from the market rather than teleported from another island. Alone among all the other Wubbox, activating the Ethereal Island Wubbox requires feeding it Ethereal Monsters, one of each type that exists on the island. As with other islands, the Wubbox activation may be sped up using diamonds, though each monster missing costs 800 , for a grand total of 12,000 for a fresh Wubbox. Fortunately, recently hatched Ethereal monsters may be boxed, unlike Gold Island. A level 15 Wubbox on Ethereal Island can also go to Gold Island.
Wublin Island Activation
The Wubbox is also available on Wublin Island as of August 30th, 2017. It can be bought for 5,000 in the Wublin Island market. Once placed, you will be required to box each of the 19 Wublins in order to activate it. It can also be activated for 1200 for each missing Wublin, or 22,800 if all Wublins are bypassed.
Unlike Wublins, which have a set time limit for Zapping, Wubbox has no time limit, thus Wublins can be boxed to the Wubbox at any pace.
Note that a Wublin must be awakened before it can be Zapped into Wubbox.
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 Wubbox:
See the Likes page to view a complete list of all monsters' likes.
Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in Coins per minute or Shards per hour 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. Only activated Wubbox produce currency.
Wublin Island Currency Production
Wubbox produces currency like the Wublins, at a rate of 6-12 hours per day. It can produce 36,000 to 78,000 Coins (), 144 to 288 Shards (), 7,200 to 14,400 Treats (), or 2 Diamonds (). It has a 31% chance each to produce Coins, Treats, and Shards and a 7% chance to produce Diamonds.
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.
