My Singing Monsters
Noggins are basically musical rocks. Deeply in tune with the earth, their simple rhythms echo an island’s pulse. The sensation of reverberation produced by a Noggin motivates all other monsters.

Description

The Noggin is a small gray golem-like monster. Characteristic features include large green eyes, three-fingered tan humanoid hands and feet, a rocky outer texture, a completely flat head, and a severe underbite.

Interestingly, Noggins' hearing is very poor, owing mainly to the fact that they have no ears. Instead, this Monster is able to "hear" through sensitive receptors in their hands and feet, which pick up the tiniest vibrations. In this way, a Noggin is able to rhythmically follow the heartbeat of the island and reproduce it by tapping its fingers on the hollow top of its flat head.

When the monster is idle, it stays in tempo by briefly stroking its fingers across its head and slowly stomping its feet.

Song

Audio sample:
Memory Audio C

The Noggin Monster contributes to the island's song by playing a variety of Latin-based drums (in Earth Island it plays a bass drum), the instrument choice varying upon island to island. Their hands beat a rhythm onto the top of their heads, which creates the sound that it plays. The Noggin plays similarly to the following instruments in each island:

  • Plant Island - Steady rhythmic timbales
  • Air Island - Steady rhythmic timbales
  • Water Island - Djembe/Congas
  • Earth Island - Bass drum
  • Gold Island - Timbales/Congas
  • Tribal Island - Fast-paced timbales

Breeding

The Noggin is the first monster available for purchase in the market. They can also be produced by breeding an unstable combination between a Noggin and another monster.

Earning Rate and Maximum Income

Earning rate is in coins 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, as well as the maximum coins earned. The food per level is the same for all single element monsters and can be found in this article.

Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster (if not using a Unity Tree), the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%. Below are the things liked by Noggin:

Wublin Egg Consumption

While trying to breed other monsters (particularly monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Wublins can be used to "dispose of" Noggin eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.

Note that bred monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Wublin statues; active Wublins do not accept monster eggs. Also note that inactive Wublin statues to which you have already disposed the number of Noggin eggs that Wublin accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.

Strategy

Some items to take into consideration when designing your island by strategy are a number of beds for the monster, the 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 1
Rate of Income High 96
Rate of Income Low 48
Max Income 216
Rate of Income per Bed High 96
Rate of Income per Bed Low 48
Max Income per Bed 216
Time to Max Income @ High 2:15 minutes
Time to Max Income @ Low 4:30 minutes

Halloween

Noggin Halloween 2015

For Halloween 2015 and October 20th, 2016, Noggin became a piece of candy corn to sweeten the islands. Yum!

In 2016, it appeared a little different showing a different shade of orange and what seems to be the sugar on a sour patch kid, could this be a new sweet? Sour patch candy corn!?!? At least it tastes good....

2016 Halloween Noggin

Name Origin

"Noggin" is a slang for head. As this monster is mostly head with almost no sign of limbs, its name might come from this informal word.

Notes

  • Concept art noggin

    Concept art

    Originally, the Noggin was called the "BumperStumper" in early designs for the game. By the time the game was released, they changed it to "Noggin". [citation needed]
  • The Noggin is the very first monster you get in the game, creating a foundation for new monsters.
  • The Noggin has the highest rate of income per bed of the pure-breed natural monsters.
  • The Noggin is the only single element natural monster that does not sing.
  • The Noggin has the same beat/song on Air Island and Plant Island.
  • The Noggin takes the shortest amount of time to hatch or breed, only taking 15 seconds.
  • The Noggin's concept art looks like the current noggin, except being made of wood instead of rock. The hands and feet are more reddish than the new Noggin we all love.
  • Two possible names for the Noggin are "Narms" and "Shlapp". Narms is a contraction of "no arms", and Shlapp is a play in words for slap.
  • The Noggin's name in Russian is "Барабамень" (pronounces as "Barabamen'"). This word is a portmanteau of "барабан" (pronounces as "Baraban", English: drum) and "камень" (pronounces as "Kamen'", English: rock).
    • It also makes a reference to the Noggin's design, which looks like a rock drum.
