Roleplay: Biomon
Biomon is the brainchild of Queen-Serenity2012/Cuttlefish Pistachio/Biomaster Justine, among others, and is an online play-by-post Mons game centering on numerous young trainers who travel across the land and capture hundreds of lovable abominations.The five major contributors are Justine, Razor, Alpaca-Stew, Pyro, and Dilo. There are currently over 150 types of Biomon, with more being added daily by the staff. It features systems such as player-run economies, alterations to change your Biomons' appearance and stats, and detailed battles, among other things.Of note is the game's numerous references to other media. Among the Biomon are a chimaera named Dyscord, eldritch deities known as C'thuun and Daigorrn, and an undead, mechanical fish and shark named, respectively, Skitta and Gashunk.

You can register for free to play the game here.

Biomon contains examples of...

  • An Adventurer Is You: All of the trainers can explore every corner of the land to track down exotic and rare Biomon in campaigns.
  • Advantage Ball: Most battles play out like this, and are influenced by the arena, type, and league of the opposing Biomon.
  • Attack Animal: The Biomon, of course (for differing defenitions of 'animal')!
  • Author Appeal: Some of the Biomasters are known to have strong preferences on Biomon. Dilo, for example, uses a lot of saurian biomon and Pyro has stated his undying love for sanity-shattering abominations from beyond the veils of space and time.
    • Pyro is actually the only Biomaster on the site with an easily-defined 'type'. While all of the other Biomasters used Biomon of many different types, a large majority of Pyro's Biomon are ??? types. The ones he has created follow this trend as well.
    • There sure are a lot of bug, dark, and ??? type biomon on the site.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The Biomasters, an elite group of trainers who rose through the ranks to represent an entire region.
  • Badass: All of the Super/Ultimate/Legendary Biomon.
  • Bag of Holding: How else would our trainers hold hundreds of pounds worth of forgotten tomes and Ogidni Pens?
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: ???-types range from eggs with arthropoid legs to humanoids made of reality itself.
  • Body Horror: Expect lots of it.
  • Bribing Your Way to Victory: You use credits to buy some of the earlier Biomon, although later on they get so expensive it's more convenient to catch them in campaigns.
    • Bodily alterations for your Biomon can be bought, with effects ranging from changing the colour of your Biomon to giving them wings.
  • Colossus Climb: In the 'With Strange Aeons' campaign, Pyro and Serenity end up having to climb the Biothane to find a dimensional rift.
  • Combat Tentacles: How else would Cth'uun, Seeque, and the like fight?
  • Cosmic Horror Story: With Strange Aeons is undoubtedly this. A pair of Biomon trainers against a reality-crossing horror that ends up having a psychic connection with one of the trainers is practically the epitome of this trope.
  • Chupacabra: Chupa, a Junior League Biomon, is a canine Chupacabra.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Battles can very easily become this if Biomon in lower leagues are pitted against those in higher leagues.
    • Partially averted in that many Junior and National League Biomon can effectively compete in the next highest league level.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: Many Dinosaur-Based Biomon are Dragon-Type, and a few breathe fire.
  • Eldritch Abomination: C'thuun, Daigorrn, and J'ktykk to name just a few.
    • Hell, the entire '???' type is pretty much this, as well as a good amount of dark and psychic types.
  • Everythings Better with Dinosaurs: Plenty of Biomon are based on dinosaurs, Magmrex and Tricerant being two notable examples.
    • The Saurie are a race of humanoid-saurian hybrids.
  • Everything Trying to Kill You: Lampshaded in 'With Strange Aeons'.
  • Fetus Terrible: Quite a few Biomon are inspired by fetuses, like Amnesion, a giant psychic embryo.
  • Gentle Giant: Many of the larger Biomon are this, especially Gaia.
  • Hand Blast: Many Biomon attacks are this.
  • Healing Factor: All Biomon have this to some extent. The Ghreg-evolution line can regenerate from nearly anything unless its nucleus is damaged.
  • Homage: To Pokémon and Mortasheen and the Mon genre in general.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Many of the non-human races are this. An example would be the Viy, muscular humanoids with a face on each shoulder, a mouth at their stump of a neck, and long, large arms to compensate for their stubby, shriveled legs.
  • Humongous Mecha: Some Metal-Type Biomon are this.
  • Kaiju: Many of the higher-ranked Biomon are Kaiju, a notable example being Gojiinferno, an expy of Godzilla.
    • One of the current campaigns involves kaiju.
    • The Zilla Islands are filled with these.
  • Mayincatec: The Mayatek are a technologically-advanced version of this trope, even going so far as to build ziggurats and worship a feathered serpent named Quetzalio.
  • Mix and Match Critters: Quite a few Biomon are hybrids of some sort.
  • Mon: Obviously.
  • Organic Technology: Many of the Biomon are this.
    • The Biothane is a skinless, shambling, bear-shaped abomination with pipes, gears, and other such mechanisms powering it.
  • Our Dragons are Different: Dragons range from traditional Chinese Dragons and Dinosaurs to Giant Lizards and Wyverns.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Zombii is a trainable Mon which behaves and looks exactly like a Romero-Zombie (minus the clothes), but can be trained to attack other Biomon instead of humans.
  • Religion of Evil: The Blind Children are thought to be this by most of the regionairres, seeing as they worship an Eldritch Abomination that takes the form of a spiny worm with one giant eye.
    • Word of God states that the Goose Dancers are a parody of this concept. All they do is dress up as geese and dance, yet are reviled by most of the regionairres as irredeemably malevolent.
  • Shout-Out: At least 20% of all Biomon are references of some sort. An example is Burstoid and Xenoid, obvious expies of the Aliens.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Brought up with the Thraecia, strong slug-people forced by humans to work in the mines that they inhabit.
  • Wolves Always Howl at the Moon: Lupine, the wolf-biomon, is guilty of this.
