A close relative of Smunkins, the Punkleton lays low for most of the year, with only its head poking above the soil. It is rumored to be the offspring of two three-element monsters.

For a limited time, it will wrench itself out of the ground, and attempt to spook other monsters with its boisterous song! It apparently works, since it is impossible to breed it with any other monster.


The Punkleton is a skeletal monster. It has red, orange, and yellow leaves where its joints are, and a jack-o-lantern for a head.

The egg of the Punkleton resembles an actual pumpkin, or if looking at the Monster World, a Smunkin.

The Punkleton Monster's contribution to an island's song is an electronically-garbled vocal component that helps to set the tempo. It frantically chants "Hooga, booga, hooga-booga!" with a slight echo that goes to the beat as the Punkleton chants. The echo cannot be heard on Gold Island. This monster sways its hands in a way that is somewhat like Michael Jackson in "Thriller."


The Punkleton Monster can only be bred for a limited time during the Halloween season. The combination is:

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 Punkleton:

Name Origin

The name is a portmanteau of "punkin" (which is itself a colloquialism for "pumpkin") and "skeleton." So, the correct pronunciation of "punkleton" is probably intended to be PUNK-leh-ton, rather than PUNK-ul-ton.


  • The Punkleton monster is the first Seasonal monster to be introduced to the game and appeared in the Market on October 23, 2012, and stayed until October 31, 2012.
  • It was also the first Seasonal monster to fully return for a few days out of season, either by breeding or purchase with diamonds (at an inflated price of 225), from April 1, 2013 until April 4 2013 at noon ET. From September 12th 2014 to September 19th 2014, the Punkleton was again available to breed and purchase, like the other Seasonal monsters, as part of the game's anniversary celebration. In 2016, the Rare Punkleton returned again on April 15th and lasted for 72 hours.
  • Its sound on Gold Island sounds similar too, if not the same as, it’s sound on Plant Island.
  • Punkleton is technically the first Seasonal Monster released in the game, as the game was released September 2012, and Punkleton followed in October.
  • The tagline commonly associated with Punkleton’s release ( like in 2017 ) reads “ On Plant Island we call home, everyone hail to the Punkleton song! “. This is a reference to The Nightmare Before Christmas. The tagline can be read in the Mailbox.
