"Shellbeats are naturally shy and like to keep hidden away in their shells. When they are woken up by their neighbor's loud singing they tend to loosen up, come out of their shell, and play along as best they can with their aquatic drum set. Shellbeats have gotten pretty good at playing lately."

The Shellbeat is a humanoid purple creature with a snail-like shell on its back.  Its tail looks like a squid's tentacle: long, with a pad of suckers on its end.  Instead of visible ears, it has small fins.  It sits on a stool in front of a drum kit consisting of a snare drum and two sets of cymbals, which it plays almost continually.  It also hits its shell with its tail, using its shell as a bass drum.

This monster is rarely idle, but when it is, it sways back and forth a bit, and keeps the rhythm by stepping lightly with alternating feet.

The Shellbeat's contribution to an island's song is a collection of mid-to-high pitch percussion sounds. In addition to its drumset and cymbals, the Shellbeat also uses its own shell as a drum. It plays on the drumset using the sticks in its hand while playing its shell with its tail. Its shell plays the role of producing the bass drum of a drumset.


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

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

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

Each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time.

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.  The food per level is the same for all four element monsters and can be found in this article.


  • NogginGo to Noggin
  • Puffle TreeGo to Puffle Tree
  • Yum Yum TreeGo to Yum Yum Tree
  • Dragon TowerGo to Dragon Tower

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.


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 155,760
Rate of Income per Bed High 66
Rate of Income per Bed Low 33
Max Income per Bed 38,940
Time to Max Income @ High 9:50 hours
Time to Max Income @ Low 19:40 hours

Name Origin

Shellbeat might be a compound word of shell and beat, because of the monster's mollusk-like shell and the fact it plays drums during its active periods in-game.

Rare Version


     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 Shellbeat on the Rare Shellbeat page.




  • The Shellbeat looks similar to H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu.
    • One of the automatic names a Shellbeat can have is "Thulhu"
  • It also somewhat resembles Doctor Zoidberg, from the animated TV show Futurama.
  • The Shellbeat also looks similar to a sea snail.
  • The Shellbeat consists of an unpredictable mixture of a sea snail, an octopus, a salamander, and perhaps a seahorse due to its fin-like ears.
