Gitans first appeared in Monster Rancher 3, and they resemble small floating purple demons with long ears and tails that end in spines. They started out with reddish fringes, but eventually they faded to being completely purple. They always have large, angry-looking eyes and their combinations usually create vampiristic or demonistic monsters. Most Gitans are imps or gremlin-like legends from European countries.
Gitans usually sport a pitchfork or spear when fighting, but are also very adept with their spines and fangs. Some of their attacks are based on magic and some on fire, and be warned: They never travel alone. Often they can call several other Gitans to back them up. They are known for purposely getting themselves into trouble but it never works they way they intend it to, usually because they are too pitiful to be taken seriously. They are available at the start in Monster Rancher Advance 2, Monster Rancher 4, and Monster Rancher EVO.
The Gitan family reappears as an enemy monster family in Monster Farm Lagoon, but they have been redesigned with circular ears and a chubby, lizard-like appearance.
