You know I've got Moshlings on my mi-ind
Look at them all!
Moshlings are collectable characters that run around in your home/"zoo". They are a class of Moshi Monsters, which seems to be described as just "relatively small monster", which not always makes a monster a Moshling.Buster Bumblechops "Moshlingologist" has dedicated his life to studying them in their great mysterious variety.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Most Moshling designs
  • Aliens Speaking English: Zoshlings can communicate with Moshi Monsters fine.
  • Amazing Technicolour Wildlife: Some of them, like Tubby Huggishis and Caped Assassins, are like regular animals but the wrong colour.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: Moshlings are based on animals, food or objects. Examples are in the NickNacks, Wheelies, Worldies and Techies.

  • Cats Are Magic: Zigzagged. Some cat species can do magic, others can't.

     Big Bad Bill and Hoodoos 
Big Bad Bill
  • Absurd Phobia: He has a fear of teaspoons.
    • His fear of clowns (Moshi Magazine issue 61) is likewise considered absurd, even if he shares it with Dr. C. Fignz. The only known all-time-Clown character in the franchise is Sweet Tooth.
  • An Ice Person: One of Bill's moves in Moshling Rescue! is turning gummies into ice.
  • Big Bad: In Moshling Rescue! Though you could argue C.L.O.N.C.'s presence in the game is more of a Big Bad as Bill is not actually bad at all.
  • Blow You Away: Bill can create a strong gust of wind by blowing. Possibly a Big Bad Wolf reference.
  • Chekhov's Volcano: Mount KrakkaBlowa was introduced as active but has not and would not erupt on its own. It is sentient and simply liked to rumble to the jungle beat. It wasn't until Moshling Rescue! that Big Bad Bill performed his magic on it to have it erupt.
  • Creepy Good: Big Bad Bill may be voted Spookiest Moshlings, he is also a relatively frequently appearing ally.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Big Bad Bill and the Woolly Blue Hoodoos, especially with the cannibalism threats are actually real generous people, especially Big Bad Bill, who is also a party host. He got a bit bored with being nice in Moshling Rescue! however.
  • For the Evulz: Big Bad Bill has absolutely no reason (given) to blow up a volcano, where he lives directly under ,to cover a jungle, where he lives, in gummy, to let his friends and familiars get trapped in it. In Trapped in Gummy!it is simply describes as "Gotta throw a Party but I gotta do my Voodoo!"
  • Evil Laugh: He got that "muhohoho~" as part of his NPC files but got the mischief twist when he became the Big Bad in Moshling Rescue!.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Him and other high placed/Chief Hoodoos wear them, making it seem like a symbol of status.
  • Harmless Freezing: An item in Moshi Monsters "Iced Hoodoo" shows Big Bad Bill is frozen solid in a block of ice. He has a surprised expression. He likely got himself into it accidentally.
  • Language of Magic: Implied with "Gombala Gombala Walla Walla Hoohah" and whatever "Umba Thlunk" means.
  • Magic Dance: Implied. Big Bad Bill does a whole rhythmic circle walk before he zaps Mt. KrakkaBlowa but is never shown to have to do it with his other magic performances.
  • Necromancer: Bill has one occasion where he called upon spirits (Magazine issue 22).
  • Shock and Awe: Bill's preferred means of elemental magic. It is difficult to see the difference between him zapping "general energy" or lightning, but he states getting a "Bolt from the Blue" and "Electrifying".
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Woolly Blue Hoodoos use Skulls for torches, general decoration and on top of they mystical staffs. They believe they bring them luck. Big Chief Bill wears a Bovinae's Boney Bonce on top of his.
  • Weather Manipulation: A skill of more Moshlings but for Big Bad Bill it has that knack of the unfortunate.
  • Witch Doctor: Big Bad Bill does the whole lotions potions hoohah but other Woolly Hoodoos are said to practice it as well. Specifically Crazy Bill hits more keys on being one as he lives in solitude with his pet crocodile.

Woolly Blue Hoodoos
  • Black Comedy Cannibalism: "They're having us for dinner"
  • Cannibal Tribe: They got the skulls, they got the huts, they got the cauldron, the entire package. Never seen them eat anyone though.
  • Captured by Cannibals: Buster Bumblechops by the Woolly Blue Hoodoos as a joke, Snuffy Hookums by the Pink Hoodoos to make her their queen.
  • Chased by Angry Natives: Vaguely happens in Mission Bungle in the Jungle as the natives aren't mad: they just want their Idol back and Woolly is stuck in that Idol. In Annual 2013, Snuffy Hookums fleas a tribe of Pink Hoodoos who assumed her their queen.
  • Hollywood Natives: Yep
  • Jungle Drums: They're there.
  • Stewed Alive: Elder Furi in the magazine stories surrounding Season 2 Missions, Everyone aside Zommer in the Movie

Woolly Green Hoodoos
  • Elective Mute: Green Hoodoo Honcho; words are not his thing, man!
  • Meaningful Name: Implied. Kook - which in surfer jargon means someone who is either new to surfing, knows how to surf but causes problems for others and act better than they are - is never given the chance to live up to the name, but it is definitely telling.
  • The Silent Bob: Green Hoodoo Honcho is the strong silent type and lets Kook, his right hand, do the talking.
  • Surfer Dude: All Green Hoodoos

Captain Squirk is the Captain of the Rhapsody 2 and your "guide" during Season 2's Super Moshi Missions.The course of the Season is ridden in references to all sorts of Popular Culture. Masters of the Universe
  • Big "NO!": At the beginning of Masters of the Swooniverse where Hubbs causes a premature blast-off with Super Moshi still on board.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Squirk looks quite humanoid in a Swooniverse of monsters.
  • Comically Missingthe Point: In Big Top Ballyhoo, Captain Squirk is more concerned with the sandwiches going missing than getting back the crew, hence when Super Moshi said Sweet Tooth is the culprit of keeping Dr. C. Fingz hostage, Squirk initially assumes Sweet Tooth to be the sandwich thief.
