|“||Although a Bowgart's elemental affinity is usually split evenly between Plant, Water and Cold, that of the Rare Bowgart heavily favors its chilliest ingredient. Overcoming the nervous nail and lip-biting habits of its common cousin, this monster allows its sickled toenails and arm horns to grow to full length. Others keep encouraging it to use its claws and take up tap-dancing to complement its fine bowing skills, but for now the Rare Bowgart is sticking to what it knows best.||”|
The Rare Bowgart has white fur with golden-colored spots. As with the Mammott, which is affiliated with Cold, the Rare Bowgart's fingers and eyelids are pink. The Rare Bowgart has additional spiky horns along the sides of its head and upper arms, and claws on its toes. The typical Bowgart horns are darker, with golden tuning pegs on them, as with its instrument.
The Rare Bowgart can also be identified through the fact that it doesn't bite its lip, but leaves its mouth open from time to time. A close examination shows that the top hairs on the Rare Bowgarts are slightly more elevated.
The Rare Bowgart's contribution to an Island's song is the equivalent of upper and lower string sections, just like its common counterpart. Its top two arms are responsible for the bowing and fingering of the upper string part, and its bottom two arms, the lower part.
The Rare Bowgart can be bred in the same ways as its common counterpart. Possible combinations are:
Any kind of breeding attempt which includes a regular Bowgart may fail, and give a Rare Bowgart as a result instead of the regular Bowgart. This includes all of the breeding combinations that can't ever work in the usual way. If you're trying to get a Rare Bowgart as a result of breeding failure, the most effective combination is to breed a regular Bowgart with a 4-element monster, since the offspring will always be a Bowgart except in the rare case that an Ethereal monster is the result. (This assumes that the probability of getting a Rare Bowgart instead of a regular Bowgart doesn't depend on which monsters are used for breeding.)
The Rare version of any breeding monster can be used instead of the common version.
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.
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 three 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 Rare Bowgart:
See the Likes page to view a complete list of all monsters' likes.
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||3|
|Rate of Income High||210|
|Rate of Income Low||105|
|Rate of Income per Bed High||70|
|Rate of Income per Bed Low||35|
|Max Income per Bed||9,450|
|Time to Max Income @ High||9:00 hours|
|Time to Max Income @ Low||4:30 hours|

In Halloween 2015, Rare Bowgart stole its common cousin's famous Frankenstein headpiece to wear for the season, and also added a small image of a skull to the base of its instrument. During that time, the common Bowgart instead dressed as a clown. This was repeated for 27th October 2016.
For Christmas 2015, the Rare Bowgart wore a Santa Claus hat: red with white trim and a round tassel. Its bow and instrument were red; the latter had a white snowflake symbol at the bottom.
The Bowgart's name may be a combination of the monster Boggart (or "bogart") and a bow, the stick used on string instruments such as the one it plays.
- Oddly, the Rare Bowgart's eyes change color; when inactive, they are whitish-yellow. When it is active, the eyes are a light blue color.
- It seems that the Rare Bowgart's extra horns and added spots have derived from the early concepts of the original Bowgart. Link.
