* 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.

* LongSongShortScene: The Work and Rest themes in [=MR1=] both run for close to a minute, but you only ever get to hear about the first ten seconds of either in the actual game.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first Monster Rancher game features Dinos instead of Zuums, a strange design for the Mew (here called Nya), and ''no Mocchis...'' among other things, like training taking the form of odd jobs and errands that earn you money. It's rather bizarre in comparison to other games in the series.

** A rare Jell monster in [=MR2=] has a metallic appearance, and its flavor text describes it as tending to run away from fights. Gosh, [[MetalSlime what in blazes could]] [[VideoGame/DragonQuest that be a reference to?]]

Added DiffLines:

* CopyProtection: Playing part 2 on a modded [=PlayStation=] doesn't lock you out of any aspects of the game, but it does cause strange effects like bathing most areas outside the ranch in garish pink lighting and turning the cheerful, bouncy town theme into an unpleasantly distorted cacophony. Also counts as NoFairCheating, since using [=GameShark=] codes will do the same things.

** Withering tactics. Using guts burning moves to make your opponent unable to attack or only able to attack with low-class moves

*** Trying to stay in the very back where both monsters can't use attacks. This compliments withering tactics well.
* BloodKnight: Jokers often ask you to participate in fights, and enjoy it thoroughly. Also Nagas and any monster whose Like trait is fixated on battles.



* BonusBoss: Lots. There are monsters that come from bonus tournaments after becoming Master rank, secret matches, post credit battles, unlocked monsters, and more. However the second game is still the king of this trope. There's the enemy class monsters from errantry (Rank A and S) and Legend Cup (the infamous Most and Poritoka). The IMA vs FIMBA match is notable since it's not only hardest in the entire game, it's also the most GuideDangIt.
** Advance 2 has a notable one in Ragnaroks. It's only accessible by raising a specific monster, but is necessary to unlock a few Dragon types.

Not to be confused with [[VideoGame/MonsterHunter Monster]] ''[[VideoGame/MonsterHunter Hunter]]''. If you should find Hunters on your Ranch, be prepared for some ''intense'' territorial disputes. Also not to be confused with ''VideoGame/MonsterRacers'', which is a racing game.

** Joker: Quite possibly the most variable one of the lot, the Joker changed almost completely from its first incarnation--where it was mostly corporeal, and had a MonsterClown face--to its second, where it became a floating spirit with RaymanianLimbs and a blank mask face. Then ''that'' changed into a fierce, floating humanoid head.
