Speculating the nature and "supposed to be's" of Octochrome programming error
  • There are 5 special breeds that have double locked code in the game coding on it which is where main idea comes from. Since the case of having multiple locked codes otherwise happen only to 3 of those random purebreeds which was Mocchi, Garu, and Doodle 2 of which is a common monster and arguably a mascot. The codes for Mocchi and Garu are Tecmo(the name of the company), MR, MRA(acronym of Monster Rancher and Monster Rancher Advance respectively) for Mocchi and GARU(the name of the resulting species) and MRA 2(Monster Rancher Advance 2, the name of the game) for Garu it seems to imply that it is purposefully made that way, however while Doodle is notable the last monster unlocked it comes with a fitting locked code(Sketch), its other code dont make sense whatsoever(JAILROCK). To make matters worse, one of the misplaced code is CTHULHU. Since a lot of the code is made as a Homage, It makes PERFECT sense if said code is made to be the code for getting an Octopee named Deep One, as a Shout-Out to Cthulhu mythos. Guess #1 : The programmer didnt forgot to put the code, the put it in the wrong adress.
    • From Guess #1, comes Guess #2 : The code for Octopee is misplaced on Ducken adress during the programming. This is proven by the fact that all three of Ducken special breeds has double locked codes. In return, all three of Octopee's secret breed has no locked code. Incidentaly, the CTHULHU code above is actualy the code of Torridon, which is another special ducken that also comes from a Wild monster, and the code for Octachrome is placed on Brinjalon, another ducken species.

    • For the guess on the rest of the misplaced code, one of the missing code is for a Special Doodle breed. Doodle has the JAILROCK password which dont make sense. The other one comes from a special monol breed. The last owner of double locked code is a special momo breed. Yeah, as you can see, all the monster that dont have locked code has some coincidental pattern.
      • Now, if only someone would put in the effort to correct these, so if Nintendo ever gets the idea to re-release this via the online system for the 3DS(or whatever future system), we can finally get 100% completion.

None of Monster Rancher happened
Genki was walking home when he passed out in an alley. Monster Rancher was a dream of his while he was knocked out.
  • Jossed by the shoes the old couple in episode 2 gave him.

The fact that Genki enters the Monster Rancher World via a summoning disk means that his body has some "Monster Properties" to it, allowing him to increase his stats the way a Monster can
Genki is regularly shown to exhibit strength and speed that a normal boy his age would find difficult if not impossible to acquire. But it, like a Monster revived from a disk, he is able to increase these hidden stats with training, it makes sense that he's able to do the things he does. Essentially he acts like a rare Human x Monster breed.

The Pheonix made the remaining baddies weaker and dumber
In the Season 2 finale the Pheonix was supposed to make all the baddies into goodies. Then in Season Three it was revealed that some Baddies are still around, but they are generally more weak and cowardly than the baddies from the previous two seasons. Either the Pheonix ignored the weaker baddies, or cured some of the baddies while making the rest weaker.

How well does it match the trope?
