The Spunge is a large, fat light green monster. Its body is just one big blob which squishes outwards where it's in contact with the ground, as if it doesn't have enough strength to hold its shape. It has two blue eyes and a green leaf on its head. It has two spindly arms (very small in proportion to its body), and no visible legs.
When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo by dancing and bopping its body upwards similar to the Toe Jammer.
The Spunge Monster's song is a smooth whistling sound. On Cold Island, it sings " G# B C# B D#-----, G# B C# B D# F# D#, C# B".
Because the Toe Jammer takes much less time to hatch than either Potbelly or Tweedle, and all of the two-element monsters require the same amount of time, 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.
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 three element monsters and can be found in this article.
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||3|
|Rate of Income High||144|
|Rate of Income Low||72|
|Rate of Income per Bed High||48|
|Rate of Income per Bed Low||24|
|Max Income per Bed||11,520|
|Time to Max Income @ High||4 hours|
|Time to Max Income @ Low||8 hours|
The Spunge's name may come from the Sponge, probably because sponges are able to absorb air and water, and spray it when necessary.

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 Spunge on the Rare Spunge page.

During the Christmas season of December 2013, all Spunges on all islands wore a layered turtleneck sweater as part of the Cold Island Christmas celebration.This outfit didn't return in 2014.
During the 2014 Halloween celebration on Plant Island, all Spunges on all Islands dressed up as vampires. This was the result of a Facebook contest to determine a new costume. The Spunge is the second monster to dress up for Halloween but not be on Plant Island, after the Pompom. Its costume appeared the day before Halloween, long after the other monsters had dressed up. (NOTE: The vampire Spunge was NOT included for PC players.)
The bloated bloodsucker returned for the Halloween Season of 2015, this time bringing its mutated, three eyed, six armed pal with it. The Spunge was also the first monster to not have a brand new costume for 2015.
- The Spunge appears on a T-shirt, on ehich he blows the seeds off of an unsuspecting Dandidoo. The Dandidoo then starts to cry, so the Spunge, in sorrow, gives the bald Dandidoo a hug. This is presented in comic form.
- As explained in its bio, the Spunge can spit water. This is a reference to squirt gun, a toy used to shoot water at targets, or sponge, the monster's name's origin.
