* AngstWhatAngst: Genki has this as a character trait. Sometimes he combines this with SandInMyEyes.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

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

** In D rank, the toughest contender you face is Sleetbomb, a Mammoth monster with insanely high Life and Power stats. If you're in the same rank, your attacks may hardly affect him if he doesn't Dodge (the rate of which is pretty low). However, if he attacks you just once with his Charge, you will take so much damage that you will be left in no position to catch up. Like the aforementioned Oakleyman, Sleetbomb is the WakeUpCallBoss of his respective rank but his size makes him more of a MightyGlacier.

** The higher tiers of the IMA vs FIMBA battle in ''Monster Rancher 2''. Given to how [[RandomlyDrops rare they are]] and [[GuideDangIt how hard to find the battle itself is]], they're not as well known as Oakleyman or Most, but they are possibly one of the most frustrating monsters to fight. All of them have 700-750+ stats, effectively making them {{Lightning Bruiser}}s. However, one of the more absurdly powerful ones is a Hare/Plant hybrid named Hammed, fought in the S-Rank. Unlike other Hares, it's custom designed to be a defensive beast, with 800 Defense (second highest stats) and 991 Intelligence-- 8 less from the {{Cap}}-- effectively making Int-based moves, usually effective against Hares, ineffective thanks to [[GuideDangIt how damage calculation works in this game]]. Against Hammed, Power-based moves the way to go, forcing you to fight the exact opposite of the way you would fight a Hare.

* CompleteMonster: Moo. Created to be a SuperSoldier to end the last war, he feeds off of hatred and lives to bring it forth in others. To that end he corrupted countless monsters, destroyed many villages, and killed countless people--and possessed Holly's father, using his connection to her to further his own goals. As Tiger put it, Moo is ''pure evil''.
