''Biomon'' is the brainchild of [[IHaveManyNames Queen-Serenity2012/Cuttlefish Pistachio/Biomaster Justine]], among others, and is an online play-by-post {{Mon}}s game centering on numerous young trainers who travel across the land and [[GottaCatchEmAll capture hundreds of]] lovable abominations.

There are over 150 types of Biomon. It features systems such as player-run economies, [[CharacterCustomization alterations to change your Biomons' appearance and stats]], and detailed battles, among other things.

The roleplay used to be found [[ here]], but the website has since been deleted, with no archive of the RP available.
!!''Biomon'' contains examples of:
%% * AdvantageBall: Most battles play out like this, and are influenced by the arena, type, and league of the opposing Biomon.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: All of the trainers can explore every corner of the land to track down exotic and rare Biomon in campaigns.
%% * AttackAnimal: The Biomon, of course (for differing defenitions of 'animal')!
* AuthorAppeal:
** Some of the Biomasters are known to have strong preferences on Biomon:
*** Dilo, for example, uses a lot of [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs saurian biomon]].
*** Pyro has stated his undying love for [[EldritchAbomination sanity-shattering abominations from beyond the veils of space and time]]. 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.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking:
** The Biomasters, an elite group of trainers who rose through the ranks to represent an entire region.
** Averted with some of the region governors, especially in the Rosemary Region; [[AdiposeRex the Rosemary governor is a morbidly obese old man who relies on his living tank, the Biothane, to defend him.]]
%% * BagOfHolding: How else would our trainers hold hundreds of pounds worth of forgotten tomes and [[FictionalColor Ogidni Pens?]]
* BizarreAlienBiology: ???-types range from eggs with arthropoid legs to humanoids made of reality itself.
%% * BodyHorror: Expect lots of it.
* BribingYourWayToVictory:
** 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.
* {{Chupacabra}}: Chupa, a Junior League Biomon, is a canine Chupacabra.
* ColossusClimb: In the 'With Strange Aeons' campaign, Pyro and Serenity end up having to climb [[LivingWeapon the Biothane]] to find a dimensional rift.
%% * CombatTentacles: How else would [[EldritchAbomination Cth'uun]], Seeque, and the like fight?
* CosmicHorrorStory: '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.
* CurbStompBattle: Battles can very easily become this if Biomon in lower leagues are pitted against those in higher leagues.
* DinosaursAreDragons: Many Dinosaur-Based Biomon are Dragon-Type, and a few breathe fire.
%% * EldritchAbomination:
%% ** 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.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs:
** Plenty of Biomon are based on dinosaurs, Magmrex and Tricerant being two notable examples.
** The Saurie are a race of humanoid-saurian hybrids.
%% * EverythingTryingToKillYou: Lampshaded in 'With Strange Aeons'.
%% * GentleGiant: Many of the larger Biomon are this, especially Gaia.
%% * HandBlast: Many Biomon attacks are this.
%% * HealingFactor: All Biomon have this to some extent. The Ghreg-evolution line can regenerate from nearly anything unless its nucleus is damaged.
%%* {{Homage}}: To ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''.
* HumanoidAbomination: 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.
%% * HumongousMecha: Some Metal-Type Biomon are this.
* {{Kaiju}}: Many of the higher-ranked Biomon are Kaiju, a notable example being Gojiinferno, an expy of Franchise/{{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.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Quite a few Biomon are hybrids of some sort.
%% * {{Mon}}: Obviously.
* OrganicTechnology: The Biothane is a skinless, shambling, bear-shaped abomination with pipes, gears, and other such mechanisms powering it.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Dragons range from traditional Chinese Dragons and Dinosaurs to Giant Lizards and Wyverns.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent:
** 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.
** The Lost Souls are [[BodyHorror horrible deformed undead ghouls]] who take an unusual interest in mechanics.
* ReligionOfEvil:
** The Blind Children are thought to be this by most of the regionairres, seeing as they worship an EldritchAbomination that takes the form of a spiny worm with one giant eye.
** 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.
* ShoutOut: Among the Biomon are:
** A chimaera named [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Dyscord]].
** Eldritch deities known as [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos C'thuun and Daigorrn]].
** An undead, mechanical fish and shark named, respectively, [[Creator/JunjiIto Skitta and Gashunk]].
** Burstoid and Xenoid, obvious expies of the {{Franchise/Alien}}s.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Brought up with the Thraecia, strong slug-people forced by humans to work in the mines that they inhabit.
%% * WolvesAlwaysHowlAtTheMoon: Lupine, the wolf-biomon, is guilty of this.
