* LivingStructureMonster: The Monol breed is a Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey '''Monol'''ith-esque ShapeShifting monster, meaning it looks like a rectangle wall, or rather, a door. It's capable of SizeShifting and PartialTransformation of its surface to produce a humanoid face and spikes.

** And Finally [[http://lparchive.org/Monster-Rancher-DS/ He did the DS version by the same author.]] Although this time he's not playing a character but making commentary as himself, mainly because it seems pretending to be a character in a game where the IdiotBall gets passed out like free candy is less than appealing, although he still does treat his monsters [[CallBack Like he did in the first game.]]

** There's a handful of titles that will produce unique monsters. Most of the mons produced from these discs often had names that were obvious puns on the title or artist. Just from the original game you had Gallop from Patti Smith's ''Horses'', Tank from TheClash's ''Combat Rock'' and Gooaall! from INXS' ''Kick''.

* MascotMook: The "core 6"/"big 6" monster species are the six species usually considered to be representative of the series as a whole. They are: NobleWolf Tiger, RidiculouslyCuteCritter (with a side order of [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguin]]) Mocchi, [[Oculothorax eyeball monster]] Suezo, StoneWall {{Golem}}, literal KillerRabbit Hare, and CuteMonsterGirl Pixie. Notably, all of them (except for Pixie) were main protagonists in the anime series, with Pixie being the primary of the QuirkyMinibossSquad.
