The Monster Rancher video game and anime franchise features monsters raised by monster breeders, who then fight in tournaments against other monster breeders. This article is about the Monster Rancher series. ... “Computer and video games” redirects here. ... “Animé” redirects here. ...


Each of these monsters are uniquely defined by a primary breed (such as Golem), which defines its basic form and abilities, and a sub-breed, which defines its color scheme, modifies appearance, and slightly alters some of its statistical capabilities. Breed is commonly specified as Primary/Sub because of the inconsistency of name and form for the generated monsters between the games. For example, Golem/Suezo indicates a monster with primary breed Golem, sub-breed Suezo, and manifests as a large humanoid figure with the bright yellow skin and single eye that are characteristic of the Suezo monster breed. Below is a list of many of the different species used in the franchise. Not all appear in every game, and many are culled for the sequels.


Within the storyline of the games and anime, monsters were created through genetic engineering as designer pets, until a war broke out in which the monsters were modified into biological weapons which could have their physical forms stored on discs. Although the ensuing conflict destroyed much of the world's civilization and technology, later generations used the discs to recreate the monsters to be used as pets, beasts of burden, and created a sport in which they were used as competitive fighters.

Generation of monsters

To generate a monster, the player is prompted to switch the Monster Rancher game disc with another CD (or a DVD for the PS2 games).
