My Singing Monsters
Potbellies are all Plant, and grow like weeds. They are welcome participants in the chorus, so long as they wear their pots and refrain from invading others' space.


The Potbelly resembles a green carnivorous plant in a cracked terracotta pot. It has two mouths, and a stem like a thick belly.

When the monster is idle, it stays in tempo by swaying back and forth in its pot.


Audio sample:
Memory Audio B

The Potbelly's contribution to an island's song is a two-part harmony of nasal, staccato vocals that go "bup" or "bawmp". The smaller of the Potbelly's two heads frequently takes a solo line, riffing on the larger head's steady line.


The Potbelly becomes available for purchase in the Market at Level 9.  They can also be produced by breeding an unstable combination between a Potbelly and another monster.

On Shugabush Island, the Potbelly must either be purchased with diamonds or teleported from any other island it is found on (not including Gold) once it reaches level 15.

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.

Level Per Minute Coins 2.0 Maximum Coins 2.0
0% Happiness 25% Happiness 50% Happiness 75% Happiness 100% Happiness

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 Potbelly:

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" Potbelly eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.

Monster EggWublin 1
Potbelly Egg
4 eggs

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 Potbelly eggs that Wublin accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.


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 1
Rate of Income High 72
Rate of Income Low 36
Max Income 216
Rate of Income per Bed High 72
Rate of Income per Bed Low 36
Max Income per Bed 216
Time to Max Income @ High 3 minutes
Time to Max Income @ Low 6 minutes

Special Occasions

Potbelly Xmas
Main article: Special Occasions


For the Cold Island Christmas celebration, the Potbelly's pot is yellow with a red bow on it. The Potbelly heads also wear Santa hats.

In 2015, this costume did return but the leaves turned red for that time.

Name Origin

Potbelly monsters, as stated above, have fat, bloated stems resembling a belly, complete with belly button -  and are kept in cracked flower pots -  hence the name "pot belly".

Rare Version

Main Article: Rare Monsters

Rare Potbelly
Rares are special versions of monsters that are only available to buy and breed on weekends. Each weekend a different rare is available to buy or breed. Unlike most types of Rare Monsters, breeding Rare Single-Element Monsters requires any combination where both of its parents possess the key element of the regular counterpart.

However, like all other Rare Monsters, the breeding time is longer, the "likes" are different, and the earning rates are higher. Rare Monsters are not yet available in the Windows version of the game.

Find out more about the rare version of the Potbelly on the Rare Potbelly page.


  • The Potbelly's song changes when a Shrubb is placed on Plant Island and if the Potbelly is not muted, one of its heads sings with the Shrubb at the beginning.
    Potbelly Leaves

    The Potbelly's leaves.

  • Sometimes a Potbelly will jump up out of its pot, during which some small leaves and roots on its underside can be briefly seen.
  • The Potbelly sounded different in the pre-release advertisements.
  • One of the possible nicknames for Potbelly, "Audrey", is a reference to the carnivorous plant Audrey II from the musical Little Shop of Horrors.
