Nobody likes watching someone let themselves go, but this is a regrettable inevitability for the Rare Punkleton. Lacking the hardiness of the Common's Smunkin-like head, it is doomed to decompose faster and turn into a sloppy mess. Donning a paper bag to limit the embarrassment, it's lucky that this ghoulish Rare Seasonal is only really active during a time of dress-up - it fits right in, and no one's the wiser!
~ In-game description


The Rare Punkleton was the second Rare Seasonal Monster to be introduced to the game. It arrived on October 15th, 2016 during the Halloween celebration.

Unlike its common counterpart, the Punkleton, the Rare Punkleton has a paper bag covering its head because it is decomposing. Its rotting innards and seeds can be seen going up and down on its body. Its skeletal body is ghastly-green and and its toes and rib cage are dulled turquoise. Vines and leaves also cover its limbs, which appear faded and inside its rib cage is a noticeable pink heart. The Rare Punkleton shares the same animation as the regular Punkleton, though at times it breathes its rotting innards and seeds in and out.


Audio sample:
Memory Audio H

The Rare Punkleton shares the same audio as its common counterpart, the Punkleton. It sings the following on each island:

The Rare Punkleton's contribution to an island's song is an electronically-garbled vocal component that helps to set the tempo. It sways its hands in a way that is reminiscent of singer and songwriter Michael Jackson, in his music video, "Thriller."


The Rare Punkleton can only be bred for a limited time within the Halloween celebration; it is not available for the celebration's full duration. There is only one combination:

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 Rare Seasonal Monsters as well as Triple Element Monsters and it can also be found in this article.

Level Food 2.0 Per Feeding Total Food 2.0 Needed Per Level
1 10 x4 40
2 20 x4 80
3 40 x4 160
4 80 x4 320
5 160 x4 640
6 320 x4 1,280
7 640 x4 2,560
8 1,280 x4 5,120
9 2,560 x4 10,240
10 5,120 x4 20,480
11 10,240 x4 40,960
12 20,480 x4 81,920
13 40,960 x4 163,840
14 81,920 x4 327,680

It takes 655,320 Food 2.0 to get a Rare Seasonal Monster from level 1 to 15.

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 Punkleton:

See the Likes page to view a complete list of all monsters' likes.


Some items to take into consideration when designing an island by strategy are the number of beds for the monster, the rate of income per bed, the max income per bed, and the time for max income to be reached. The income below is for level 15:

Number of Beds 1
Rate of Income High 240 Coins 2.0
Rate of Income Low 120 Coins 2.0
Max Income 28,080 Coins 2.0
Rate of Income per Bed High 240 Coins 2.0

Possible Monster Names

The following are the possible names that will be given to a Rare Punkleton by default.

Freddy Jason Kyuri Mike Zook

Name Origin

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

  • Some of its default names (Jason, Freddie, and Mike) are references to killers in popular horror movies (Jason Bane, Freddie Cruegur, and Micheal Meyers)
  • It appears as though the Rare Punkleton wears a paper bag so as not to reveal its embarrassingly lightbulb-bright face, as well as the decaying material inside its head.
