Rai raiden

The Raiden species are creatures that resemble humanoid birds. They are masters of the martial arts, and most of their attacks feature kicks, chops, or punches. They first appeared in Monster Rancher 3 and must be unlocked in most games they appear in. In Monster Rancher 4 Raiden plays an important part in the first storyline: the cave found on Phayne's ranch is home to the a large level boss Raiden called Shiden. After defeating him, the player is given a "Raiden Feather" and can breed them from there on out. The bird boss Mao Mao in Monster Rancher EVO also seems to like the Raidens and uses them as bodyguards for the bird sanctuary.

  • Other monsters have similar names


Raidens are based on the mythological Japanes tengu, who are said to be part bird and part man. Strangely enough, most of the Raiden sub-breeds have Greek names though. The word raiden is actually a Chinese/Japanese word for the phenomenon of thunder and lightning.
