Grumpyre

Another of the mysterious Ethereals, you can never fully tell what kind of mood the Grumpyre is in. Thanks to its shifting eyes and mouth as it gurgles forth its song, it might appear sad when really it's happy, or afraid when it's actually having a blast. This makes sense, since it embodies the essence of shadow - always a bit obscured, and able to unnerve even the most intrepid of monsters.

Description

The Grumpyre joined the song on August 19, 2013. The monster resembles a gray-black bat creature surrounded by a cloud of smoke. It has two pairs of red bat-like wings full of holes, two arms, but no legs or ears; it occasionally goes cross-eyed.

In the 1.3.1 update, released on December 5th 2014, eyebrows were added to the Grumpyre, occasionally emerging during its animations.

When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo by flying in a style similar to the Tweedle, dangling its arms, and making various facial expressions.

Song

Audio sample:
Memory Audio J

The Grumpyre sings "boom-Shicka-la-Shicka, boom-Shicka-la-Shika" in a harsh whispering voice. It does this repeatedly for its part in the Cold Island song. In Ethereal Island, it sings "boom-shika-La, boom-shika-la-la-la-la boom-shika-la, boom-shika-la-la, boom-shika-la, boom-shika-la-la-la-la Boom-shika-la, Boom-shika-la-la"

Breeding

The Grumpyre can be bred using a combination of a Deedge and one three-element monster. Possible combination(s):

​There is roughly a 1% chance of breeding this successfully. It is uncertain whether some combinations work better than others. According to statistics, doing 70 attempts gives you a 50% chance of successfully breeding at least one Grumpyre; and doing 690 attempts gives you a 99.9% chance of successfully breeding at least one Grumpyre. Note that a Rare Monster could substitute any of the parents. The only exceptions are "Ethereal Breeding Bonanzas". These increase the chance of breeding an Ethereal by 500%. If you know your math's, you'll know that means there is 5x more chance.

Earning Rate and Maximum Income

Earning rate is in coins or shards per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.

Feeding Monsters

Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute.  The food per level is the same for all Ethereal element monsters and can be found in this article. With the Ethereal Island update, Ethereal monsters can achieve level increases to level 15, and may be placed on Ethereal Island instead of Gold Island.

Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25% (in other words, placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%).

Strategy

Some items to take into consideration when designing your island by strategy are number of beds for the monster, rate of income per bed, max income per bed, and time for max income to be reached. The income below is for level 15:

Number of Beds 5 5
Rate of Income High 336 48
Rate of Income Low 168 24
Max Income 276,000 276
Rate of Income per Bed High 67.2 9.6
Rate of Income per Bed Low 33.6 4.8
Max Income per Bed 55,200 55.2
Time to Max Income @ High 13:41:25 hours 5:45:00 hours
Time to Max Income @ Low 27:22:51 hours 11:30:00 hours

Name Origin

The name "Grumpyre" may be a portmanteau between Grumpy and Vampire, due to the ambiguous facial expressions that the monster makes and to its bat-like traits.

Christmas

Grumpyre Xmas 2015

Grumpyre, Christmas 2015

Ethereal Island had been Christmas-free until December 2015, when the Grumpyre became the first monster to dress up at Ethereal Island. It appears that the Grumpyre wears a wreath around its neck to suit its own feeling of Christmas.

Notes

Angry Grumpyre

Grumpyre with the different facial expressions

  • The Grumpyre, like any other Ethereal monster, can only be placed in the Breeding Structure on Ethereal Island.
  • The Grumpyre continues to emit black smoke even when it sleeps (i.e. is muted), albeit in lesser quantities.
  • When they are muted, they also rest on the ground.
  • One of the Breeding Combinations (Thumpies and Deedge) was also a combination for the Yool. BBB eventually realized the confusion, and changed the Yool's breeding combination on September 13rd, 2014, when the Time of the Season event was started on Anniversary Month.
  • Even though there are holes in the Grumpyre's wings, it still flies without any problem.
  • In the info menu, the Grumpyre's eyebrows never emerge, similarly to its pre-1.3.1 appearance.
  • Its face looks similar to a Pygmy from the IOS/Android game Pocket God
  • There was a rare version released recently
