Go To

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.

There are over 150 types of Biomon. It features systems such as player-run economies, 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:

  • An Adventurer Is You: All of the trainers can explore every corner of the land to track down exotic and rare Biomon in campaigns.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: ???-types range from eggs with arthropoid legs to humanoids made of reality itself.
  • 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.
  • Chupacabra: Chupa, a Junior League Biomon, is a canine Chupacabra.
  • Colossus Climb: In the 'With Strange Aeons' campaign, Pyro and Serenity end up having to climb the Biothane to find a dimensional rift.
  • 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.

  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Battles can very easily become this if Biomon in lower leagues are pitted against those in higher leagues.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: Many Dinosaur-Based Biomon are Dragon-Type, and a few breathe fire.
  • Everything's 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.
  • 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.
  • Kaiju: Many of the higher-ranked Biomon are Kaiju, a notable example being Gojiinferno, an expy of Godzilla.
  • 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.
  • Organic Technology: 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.
    • The Lost Souls are horrible deformed undead ghouls who take an unusual interest in mechanics.
  • 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.
    • 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: Among the Biomon are:
  • 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.
