Ballon (also sometimes called Balloon or Balon) is a regal breed of Tiger with a Gali sub-type. They have an odd mask that covers their entire head, and sometimes makes their facial expressions look grotesque. It is later redesigned and renamed.
Monster Rancher 1: His long and fluffy fur makes him look much larger.
Monster Rancher 2: Because of its solemn nature, ordinary people don't keep it.
Ballon, Balloon, and Balon are mistranslations of "Barong" (バロン), a benevolent divine beast in Indonesian mythology that has white fur and is adorned with golden jewelry.
