The Monster Rancher Video game and anime franchise that features monsters raised by monster breeders, who then fight in tournaments against other monster breeders.

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-type Suezo, and manifests as a large humanoid figure with the bright yellow skin and single eye that are characteristic of the Suezo monster breed. Each monster breed also has at least one "rare" sub-breed. These often unusual sub-breeds cannot be created by combining. They can only be unlocked directly at the Shrine. For example, in Monster Rancher 2, inserting the Monster Rancher 1 disc creates a rare sub-breed of Suezo called "Sueki Suezo", which is Suezo/???. All Rare sub-breeds are notated as Primary/???.

According to the story presented at the start of Monster Rancher 2, the monsters were created by God in response to a series of natural disasters humans found themselves incapable of dealing with properly. Once monster use became commonplace, the humans turned them into weapons of war. To limit these problems, God sealed the monsters into the disc-shaped stones called saucer stones. An untold amount of time later, the Tochikan tribe (introduced in Monster Rancher 3) discovered the method for unsealing the monsters. However, due to their xenophobic nature, they refused to share this technology until after the events of Monster Rancher 3 had ended.

Within the storyline of the anime, after their creation monsters were developed through genetic engineering as designer pets, until a war broke out in which the monsters were modified into biological weapons that could have their physical forms stored on discs. One tribe in particular, the Pendant tribe, made the most powerful monster of all. Soon, however, the monsters began to fight back, and although the ensuing conflict destroyed much of the world's civilization and technology, later generations used the discs (now called Mystery Discs because they could not tell what was inside) to revive the monsters to be used as pets, beasts of burden, and created a sport in which they were used as competitive fighters.

Generation of MonstersEdit

To generate or "unlock" a monster, the player is prompted to switch the Monster Rancher game disc with another CD (or a DVD for the PlayStation 2 games). The game will read the digital information contained on the disc, and map the sequence of values to the range of integers in the game's memory. These integers are used to define what breed the monster is, as well as its stats, personality, and traits. In the Monster Rancher Advance and Monster Rancher Advance 2 games, this CD reading process is replaced by a character input system. The player is prompted to enter a limited sequence of characters, and the combination of characters determines its breed, sub-breed, stats, and traits.

In the new Monster Rancher DS and Monster Rancher DS 2 games, monsters can be generated by entering characters, "unlocking" DS game cartridges (very much like the CD reading method), or by drawing a sketch on the input pad. Different breeds and sub-breeds are created depending on what method you use and what information the game receives. In almost every game, new monsters can also be created by combining two of your present monsters together to produce a single monster with features from both parents, including physical attributes, traits, and stats.

However, in Monster Rancher 3 this feature was replaced with a system of "evolution" which altered the monsters according to the type of area they train in. In Monster Farm Online and Monster Farm Lagoon, items and the type of food you feed your monster can alter their traits and appearance.
