Sadly, the hard copies of the game never made it out of Japan. So far, only two games exist: ''Monster Rancher Battle Card Game'' for the Gameboy and ''Monster Rancher Battle Card Game Episode II'' for the Playstation. Though a ''Monster Rancher CCG'' was released, it used a different system altogether and had more to do with the anime than the games.

Exploration and story progress in the former is very similar to the Gameboy VideoGame/PokemonTradingCardGame Game for the GameboyColor, while the latter is more like the original ''VideoGame/MonsterRancher'' games, with a calendar and scheduled fights.

The Gameboy game also has gained some notoriety for its [[SoBadItsGood infamous]] [[BlindIdiotTranslation awful translation]].

* AwesomeButImpractical: Strong attacks require lots of GUTS, so that means you have to discard many cards in order for them to work. Not only that, but you should also avoid using other cards since they would consume your GUTS. At the end, using a couple of high-cost cards is really risky, since you can get ''Decked out'' and have to be open to your enemies' attacks. Further, defensive cards generally cost 1 or 2 GUTS at the most, so if your opponent happens to have a card to evade you, they spend ~2 cards (factoring in the cards discarded for GUTS) to negate ~5 of yours.
