* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The anime's anti-war message really hits home after you see what war did to the planet in the past, and how it affects the Monster Rancher world in the present day. The backstory has humans who grew proud and destructive, creating Monsters for anything that would suit their wants. Eventually they created Moo in an attempt to end the last war, which ended up nearly destroying the entire planet until they created the Phoenix to stop him—and what it took to defeat Moo involved destroying virtually everything. When Moo returns to finish what he started, great sacrifice is required yet again--this time on a personal level, with [[spoiler:the Searchers fusing together to become the Phoenix, and their consciousnesses ceasing to exist]].

* {{Woolseyism}}: Sometimes the dub's edits worked in its favor. In Tiger's battle with Grey Wolf, for example, the English dub added effectiveness by cutting out some of the battle with the Cabalos, devoting time to a flashback of the brothers' time as pups.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Moo]] [[note]]"Muu" in Japanese means [[LostInTranslation darkness or emptiness]].[[/note]] was a SuperSoldier created by an ancient civilization to win a war. However, Moo realized how powerful he was and [[AGodAmI viewed himself as too good to be a living weapon]], and destroyed all who wouldn’t serve him. [[EmotionEater Feeding off anger and hatred]], Moo turned many monsters into his servants before his battle with the Phoenix ended with [[SealedEvilInACan his soul sealed into a Mystery Disk]]. Ages later, Holly’s father finds the disk in his search to prove the Phoenix’s existence, unintentionally freeing Moo, who [[DemonicPossession possesses the man]] and feed off his deep rage at being banished. Seeking his real body to [[TakeOverTheWorld resume his conquest]], he recruits many monsters with anti-human beliefs to aid him, giving them crests that, if removed or destroyed, will kill the wearer. All humans and monster who do not conform to his views are either killed or enslaved. Realizing the Magic Stone can help him find his body, Moo kidnaps Holly, revealing his identity to her to[[ManipulativeBastard bring her to his side]]. Along the way, his crimes include [[TheCorrupter corrupting]] Tiger’s brother Gray Wolf, [[BadBoss killing his minions for any reason]] and [[WouldHurtAChild attempted murder of a little girl]] after reclaiming his true body. When he is seemingly destroyed, Moo’s soul was found by [[TheStarscream General Durahan]] in a bid to grow more powerful, only for Durahan to become Moo’s new unwilling host, already [[DrivenToMadness driven insane]] from all the hatred he absorbed and [[OmnicidalManiac aiming to destroy the world]]. [[TheDreaded Feared and hated]] by human and monster alike, Moo [[KnightofCerebus stood out]] in this otherwise fun adventure series as a creature of pure evil.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Moo]] was originally a SuperSoldier from a long dead civilization. Feeding off anger and hatred, Moo was [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]] when he tried to destroy the world and corrupt all monsters into his minions. Freeing himself ages later by [[DemonicPossession possessing an explorer]], he sought to [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate]] the man's daughter to fulfill his own ends and set about forcibly corrupting monsters into his minions. Moo has no compunction killing anything in his way and [[MindRape destroying the minds]] of those he can corrupt. Moo tries to [[BadBoss kill any minion]] he believes is an issue for him, and his ultimate goal is to find his old body and [[OmnicidalManiac resume destroying the planet]].

* ThatOneAttack : Every attack from a MightyGlacier or a monster that hit hard (even if it's inaccurate) and bulky enough to take punishments or able to consistently evade it. TheComputerIsACheatingBastard seems to run rampant in the series.

to:

** The expeditions in [=MR1=] are a chance to snag some rare and unique items, but the probability of your monster getting lost while they search ruins is ''far'' too high to make it worth the while, and the odds of it happening are the same regardless of their level of training and loyalty. Between this and the fact that opportunities always seem to come up right before official tournaments are held, it's usually best to just keep to your schedule and tell Karn to piss off.

* EarWorm: The soundtrack from each game is loaded with tunes that are ridiculously, almost ''aggressively'' catchy.
