Monster Rancher
Rare Monster CDs

There are a bunch of very special, very rare monsters which you can extract only from very specific CDs. As you can see from the following list, the selection of CDs is so varied that there's a pretty good chance that you may have one of them.

Please bear in mind that, sometimes, CDs are remastered or released in multiple versions so a CD with the same title as one on this list may not necessarily work. Also, before you can extract a rare monster with a rare main type from a CD, you must the earn monster within the game. For example, you can't extract the Cutey (a type of Ape) monster from the Spice Girls CD until you have already bred an Ape by finding the Magic Banana. But you can extract a rare monster with a common main type at any time (such as the Bunny [Pixie/???]).

Incidentally, all of these CDs were specially chosen by the Tecmo team. You can tell because these special, super-rare monsters actually resemble the CDs from which they are born! For example, on the cover of Bjork's Homogenic CD, Bjork is dressed as a Geisha and the monster you get is a Geisha. And the Cari you get from Gloria Estefan's Destiny is wearing the very outfit that Estefan wears on the cover of that CD. Pretty neat, eh?
