"Riffs are masterful musicians. Very little is known about these complex monsters, but they do have some distinct and unusual habits. For example, Riffs use their flexible toes to select random objects from the ground which they inspect, then eat."

Description

Riffs are big orange monsters with three toes per foot, maroon hair, red lips, ears that look like the wings of a bat, and traces of feathers in their limbs.

When idle, the Riff will nod its body (as its head is on its body) and occassionally open its mouth.

Song

Audio sample:
Memory Audio ACDE

The Riff Monster's contribution to an island's song is playing an instrument resembling an electric guitar. The guitar is not actually electric, nor is it a real instrument; it is another monster that shares a symbiotic relationship with the Riff. The guitar monster produces sounds matching its real-life counterpart. 

Breeding

The Riff can be bred using monsters that combine to provide all the elements Cold, Air, Water and Earth without repeating any.

The following pairs of 2-element monsters can be used to breed a Riff:

However, the combination of a 3-element with 1-element monster has a higher rate of success:

The Riff is hard to breed, so you probably need to light a few Wishing Torches. However, T-Rox and Tweedle have the shortest incubation times, giving another chance to breed the monster quicker than any of the other 3-element + 1-element combinations.

Earning Rate

Earning rate is in coins per minute.

Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25% (in other words, placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%).

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

Strategy

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 4
Rate of Income High 264
Rate of Income Low 132
Max Income 207,372
Rate of Income per Bed High 66
Rate of Income per Bed Low 33
Max Income per Bed 51,843
Time to Max Income @ High 13:05:30 hours

The Riff's name originates from the term, "guitar riff ".

Rare Version

RareRiffTrans

     Main Article: Rare Monsters

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. The breeding combination is the same as a regular monster, but the breeding time is longer, the "likes" are different, and the earning rates are higher. They are not yet available in the Windows version of the game.

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

Notes

  • The Riff has hair much like that of Paul McCartney when he was younger - when he was the guitarist for the Beatles.
  • The Riff's arms appear to be covered in fur or feathers, whereas his body appears to be covered in scales.
  • The Riff has the highest income of all quad-element monsters.
  • Occasionally, the Riff will use its wings to hover a short distance above the ground during his song.
  • The Riff's feathery limbs and body, and feet, somewhat resemble a chicken.
  • The name of "Riff" remains constant in all languages.
