MSM Bio:

Versatile Scups can readily adhere to most any surface when the need arises. Generally, it prefers to remain on the Earth, as its Water-filled body is quite heavy. The Scups' remarkable feet use Air to produce a call that can travel vast distances.

MSM Composer Bio:

The Scups has special suction cup-shaped feet which it uses to emit a variety of squeaks and squawks, not unlike a toilet plunger. The horns on its head help these sound achieve greater volume.

Description

The Scups is a peculiar creature, to say the least. Its body, which has a vague resemblance to a heart, is colored ocean blue. It has two yellow trumpet-like horns on its head. Its two purple and blue striped legs are somewhat long, and end with plunger-like feet.

When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo by slowly marching in place, avoiding making any suction noises.

Song

Audio sample:
Memory Audio ACD

The Scups's song sounds like suction cups getting pulled off of hardwood and getting stuck back on.

Breeding

The Scups can be bred using monsters that combine to provide all the elements of Air, Earth and Water. Possible combinations:

Because Tweedle and Fwog take much less time to hatch than both Quibble and Cybop, the first combination will provide more breeding opportunities in the same time period (on average).

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.

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 Scups:

Wublin Egg Consumption

While trying to breed other monsters (particularly monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Wublins can be used to "dispose of" Scups eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.

Note that bred monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Wublin statues; active Wublins do not accept monster eggs. Also note that inactive Wublin statues to which you have already disposed the number of Scups eggs that Wublin accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.


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 3
Rate of Income High 168
Rate of Income Low 84
Max Income 34,272
Rate of Income per Bed High 56
Rate of Income per Bed Low 28
Max Income per Bed 11,424
Time to Max Income @ High 3:24 hours
Time to Max Income @ Low 6:48 hours

Name Origin

The name "Scups" may come from the portmanteau of suction cups that the monster has. In addition to this, the Scups "scoops" its feet off the ground to create the suction cup sound.

Rare Version

RareScupsTrans

     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 Scups on the Rare Scups page.

Notes

  • The concept egg is the one that was initially active in game, and is also shown here along with the Scupp concept artConcept-scupps-eggoriginal concept monster. It's identical to the normal Scups, with something like the Wild Bagpipe on top of its head. There are concept drawings of three other monsters: T-Rox, Entbrat, and Maw.
  • The original Scups egg can still be seen in-game, as part of the image at the top of the goals list.
  • The plural of Scups is Scups.
  • Scups is one of the only original natural monsters to yet not be in Dawn of Fire, with the others being Reedling and Cybop

Christmas

During the Christmas holiday season, all Scups (on all the islands) changed into reindeer costumes, with green fur (alternating with blue stripes on their legs), antlers, and a bright red nose, as part of the Cold Island celebration. The "head feathers" of the Scups are missing during this time. Note that the Scups doesn't appear on Cold Island itself, This goes the same with Shrubb.
