YMMV / My Singing Monsters

Go To

  • Broken Base: The Wubbox. One portion of the fanbase love its contribution of Dubstep to the songs of the islands it is placed on, while the other portion feels its sound ruins the islands' songs. Then there is its gameplay aspect, with its high cost and completely different raising mechanics.
    • The Plant Island quad-element monster, the Entbrat. Some people are averse to its non-melodic bellowing "singing" and usually mute it once they successfully hatch one. It does sound much better when placed on the Tribal Island, however.
      • In an ironic twist, the Entbrat was added to Dawn of Fire, and despite his cloud island voice fixing most of the problems people had with him, people agree that this new voice made him worse.

    • The rare Hoola certainly qualifies as this. Not only is the regular hoola difficult to breed on it's own thanks to it being a seasonal monster and its low breeding chance in general, but the Rare Hoola has (so far) only been avaliable at random times. In 3. Hour. Increments. Not only does it only allow for about two attempts maximum on each island, it also doesn't take into account different time zones, so you better hope they don't make it avaliable when you'd normally be asleep. Needless to say, it has caused a lot of backlash, as many see it as a ploy by BBB to make people buy it instead with Diamonds, which cost real world money.
      • Thankfully, BBB has noticed the controversy and has not only made these Rare Hoola opportunities occur more often, but also released a code to everyone for 10 free diamonds.

  • Ear Worm: Just about all of the island songs, especially when you have placed every monster available on a given island.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: The Bowgart is a fairly popular monsters among players, mostly because the songs it's in sound far more wholesome with it.
  • Epileptic Trees: It’s not uncommon on videos featuring the Werdos plant island song, to see a theory pop up along the lines of "The Werdos must have eaten the fire elemental monsters, because Kayna is trapped in amber. The relics used to unlock the Werdos are yellowish orange, like amber. Fire burns trees. The Werdos song has a part about trees. The Werdos trapped the fire elemental monsters in amber, then ate them to protect the trees from fire". This ignores the fact that the "Freed thing" decoration’s Information says that the Freed thing talks about some sort of cataclysmic event that affected at least two different dimensions, and that it was somehow trapped in amber along with Kayna, because of the binding magic of the trees. While the game itself doesn’t seem know exactly what the Freed thing is talking about, the info gives no indication that the Werdos had any part in it. With the release of Dawn of Fire, the theory may have lost some of its popularity, due to it showing the fire element monsters living with the other monsters without complication.
  • Heartwarming Moments: The reveal that the fire element monsters survived. The Fire Haven monsters are finally able to reunite with the monsters of other elements, and wasted no time welcoming them to the island. Fire Haven’s song is the first song they’ve sung with the othersnote  in what could very well have been eons.
    • After the discovery of Fire haven, some fire monsters, like Phangler, appear sad that their home can’t have all of the monsters on it (likely due to the extreme heat). To fix this, water, cold, air, and fire element monsters get together, and get to work making an island together, out of blown glass. This gives their fiery friends a new home on the surface, as well as a place where water and cold element monsters can easily be with them.

  • Memetic Mutation: The Dandidoo has become a meme among the My Singing Monsters community thanks to Mofix Productions' "The Dandidoo Song."
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of the inactivated Wublin statues look unsettling, to say the least. The fact that un-hatched monster eggs essentially have to be sacrificed in order to wake them up does not help.
    • The rare Punkletons have to deal with their heads decomposing, and their bio implies that the same will happen to regular Punkletons, but at a much slower rate.
  • Tear Jerker: Gold Island. It's essentially (almost) every single monster in the game gathering on one island to say goodbye to their human visitor.
    • The Weirdo's song on cold island starts off sweet with the female one saying "Look at the stars in the big black ink". But then they imply that other monsters may not have liked them in the past. They say "No one likes me, everyone is afraid of me".
