|~ "What's new" description of Rare Monsters|
Rare Monsters are special counterparts of the normal monsters in My Singing Monsters. As seen on the MSM Facebook page and the MSM Youtube page, these are not completely new classes of monsters. Instead, they are actually new versions of the monsters already in the game and they comprise one class, "Rare." Rares exhibit many of the same traits as their normal monsters, including, but not limited to, song and animation (except for the Rare Wubbox), egg design, breeding combination, and general size. Compared to normal monsters, Rare Monsters have longer breeding times, have different Likes, and they generate more Coins/Shards.
Thus far, Natural, Seasonal Ethereal Monsters are the only classes of monster to have a Rare for every regular monster within their class. Out of the Supernatural Monsters, only the Wubbox has a Rare counterpart.
Legendary Monsters, Mythical Monsters, Dipsters, and Werdos are the only other types of monsters to have no Rare versions. Monsters exclusive to Dawn of Fire, and the Kayna found in Tribal Island, also lack Rare versions.
All Rare Natural Monsters can only be bought for a limited amount of time from the StarShop with Starpower, or bred on the Natural Islands during Daily Deals or weekend deals. The Rare Wubbox is always available for purchase from the StarShop on Plant Island, Cold Island, Air Island, Water Island and Earth Island, as well as their respective Mirror Island. Every Wednesday since October 5th, 2016, a Rares Duet occurs, which makes two specific Rares available in the StarShop. During the time that a Rare Ethereal Monster or Rare Seasonal Monster is available to buy/breed, it appears in the list of monsters in the Market on its appropriate island and it includes a display showing how much longer it will be available. The cost of these Rares is always a high price in Diamonds, making them some of the most expensive and difficult monsters to acquire in the game.
Rare Monsters were announced on October 6th, 2014 and made their debut four days later for the weekend of October 10th, 2014, beginning with the Rare Furcorn. After the arrival of the first Rare, new Rares occurred every consecutive weekend through the weekend of January 9th, 2015, except for the weekend of December 26th, 2014. After January 9th, 2015, new rares came on every other weekend beginning with the weekend of January 16th, 2015. In between every second weekend, there was a voting proposal for which Rare was nominated for "rerunning". Voting was only conducted on My Singing Monsters' Facebook page, and whichever monster got the most votes was rerun for an additional weekend.
On July 6th, 2015, the Rare Single Element Monsters were released and lasted for a whole week until another Rare Single Element Monster took over. These special monsters introduced a whole new different set of likes and way of breeding -- the way to breed them is to breed two Triple-Element Monsters that share the Rare's one element. For example, the Rare Mammott can be bred with a T-Rox or a Clamble, which both have the Cold Element.
On August 5th, 2015, the last Rare Natural Monster, the Rare Noggin became available. Three months later on November 16th, 2015, Update 1.3.6 launched, making Rares no longer limited and relocating them in the Rares section in the StarShop. The Rare Wubbox also became available in the update but only on Plant Island during its initial release.
For an unknown reason, the last time voting sessions had run was on September 11th 2015, with Rare Furcorn, Rare Entbrat, Rare Deedge, Rare Bowgart, and Rare Quarrister running during that time, which from then on somehow stopped the once-consistant voting sessions.
On April 22nd, 2016, the Rare Ethereal Monsters, officially known as "Raretherals", were released, starting with the Rare Ghazt.
On July 16th, 2016, several days after the re-release of the Hoola, the first Rare Seasonal Monster was released: the Rare Hoola. Such monsters are only available during the times of their regular counterpart and can only be bred in small parts of their counterpart's availability.
On September 1st, 2016, all Rare Natural Monsters in the StarShop were removed and had their period of availability reduced to a rotational basis, with one monster at a time. My Singing Monsters' Facebook comment claims that "In order to preserve their special status and the challenge involved in collecting them, we've made the decision to have their availability rotate in the StarShop. Rest assured, there will continue to be StarShop promotions, like the popular Rares Duet discount, after Anniversary Month". However, some users on Facebook complained with "sad" or "angry" emoticons as well as criticizing the change. In addition, up until this update, Daily Deals and weekend deals previously reduced the cost of the Rares in the StarShop. Since the update, Daily Deals during events still continue to reduce the cost of Rares in the StarShop but Rares Duets only allow for the Rare Monsters in question to be available for purchase.
Since October 5th, 2016, Rare Natural Monsters appear in the StarShop every Wednesday through Rares Duets. Aside from occasional events, such as the now re-introduced Rares Reruns since October 21st, 2016, this will be the only way to obtain Rare Monsters.
List of Rare Monsters
Rares can only be bred if a Daily Deal or weekend deal is occurring. Otherwise, they must be purchased in the StarShop with Starpower, although this only applies to Natural Monsters and the Rare Wubbox. Rares are bred the same way as regular monsters; they require parents that are level 4 or higher. The parents can be normal or Rare. Valid empirical testing to determine which combination has the highest chance of producing a Rare offspring has not been done; the period of availability is too short to get useful data.
It is possible to breed most Rare Monsters by breeding failure. Breeding failure occurs when a breeding combination produces one of the monsters that were used for breeding. This includes breeding combinations that can never be successful in the sense that they would create a new monster type different from the parents. For example, breeding a Rare Noggin with a Rare Fwog will never produce a Triple Element Monster. Instead, this breeding combination will result in either the Rare or normal version of one of the parents.
In general, this method of breeding cannot be used to create Rare Quad Element Monsters since a quad monster bred with another monster does not result in an egg of that quad monster. There are two exceptions: 1.) If you breed a Rare Quad-Monster with its own common counterpart, that monster type will be the result, which may give the Rare version if it is available at that time and 2.) the Rare Deedge can be bred from a Deedge and a Shugabush on Shugabush Island, which may give a Deedge (Rare or common) as the offspring.

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 for each level is the same for each Rare monster as it is for their normal counterpart, e.g. Rare Fwog food per level is the same as the normal Fwog at the same level.
Since December 2015, a new Rares Research is announced every month on the MSM Facebook page. When this happens, the selected Rare is available for 24 hours, and more information regarding that particular Rare is revealed.
- Compared to their normal counterparts, Rare monsters have different:
- Likes. Their likes always include their normal counterparts.(Except for Rare Wubbox)
- Coin rates and cost. Rare monsters earn more coins and cost more than their counterparts.
- Breeding/hatching times. Rare monsters take longer to breed/hatch than normal monsters.
- Compared to their normal counterparts, Rare monsters have the same:
- Bed space and size. Rare monsters require the same bed space and have the same size as their counterpart except for the Rare Wubbox, which requires only one bed.
- Sound/noise, except for the Rare Wubbox. This stays true even if their song has been altered in the Recording Studio.
- Egg design. All eggs that contain Rare Monsters look exactly the same as their common counterparts, except that a shimmer, or gleam, effect will appear across the egg from left to right in Breeding structures and Nurseries.
- Ability to be Teleported (or not) to other islands.
- Rare Monsters will count the same as their normal counterparts for the purpose of other monsters' likes; e.g., if a monster likes a Furcorn, it will also like a rare Furcorn.
- Rares can be bred with one another, but no evidence suggests that this offers a higher chance of successfully breeding a Rare. This includes breeding failure. For example, a failed breeding attempt with a Rare Furcorn might produce a regular Furcorn, not a Rare Furcorn. Of course, a Rare Monster cannot be produced using any breeding method if the breeding attempt is made outside the time when that Rare Monster is not available.
- Rares can be bred with their common counterparts. This can be useful in making multiple Rares of the same type. Obviously, to do this, one of those Rares must already be owned. For example, an Entbrat can be bred with a Rare Entbrat and produce another Entbrat. (It would be possible to breed a Rare Entbrat with this method as well, but only when the Rare Entbrat is being offered). With rare ethereal monsters, this sort of breeding can only be done on Ethereal Island. For example, a Ghazt and a Rare Ghazt on Plant Island cannot breed to produce another Ghazt; they can, however, on Ethereal Island.
- For Special Occasions, Rare Monsters are dressed up at the same time as their normal counterparts, but the Rare and normal monsters are always dressed differently from each other.
- Placing a Rare Monster on Gold Island will be credited toward the breeding Goals with a reward as if they were their common counterparts. For example, if a Thumpies has not yet been introduced to Gold Island, a Rare Thumpies will still work the same and activate the the 2,000,000 reward.
- Rares can only be boxed into a Rare Wubbox.
- In the Memory Game, Rares can also be included. Because they sound the same as their normal counterparts, it is significantly more difficult to choose them both to play with at the same time.
- Rare monsters from the Plant, Cold, Air, Water, Earth Islands, and Mirror Islands that also live on Shugabush Island can be bought from the Shugabush market during Daily or weekend Deals, bred on their home island and teleported to Shugabush Island, or bred on Shugabush Island by breeding their non-rare monster with the Shugabush monster. This non-rare breeding may result in the birth of a non-rare elemental monster, a rare elemental monster, a Shugabush monster, or the normal Shuga-monster that comes from this breeding pair.
- So far, there have been no Rare Legendary Monsters, Rare Mythical Monsters, or Rare Dipsters.
- Since the introduction of the Rare Wubbox, which does not have a natural element, all Rare Monsters are grouped as "Rare" plus in brackets what their common counterpart would be categorised as. For example, a Rare Furcorn would be categorised as "Rare (natural)", which a Rare Wubbox would be categorised as "Rare (supernatural)".
- Rares are not available in the Windows version of the game.
