Hengers are mysterious robot monsters that were built with lost technology from an ancient civilization. They can stand upright on two legs or fold themselves up into a more compact form, much like a transformer. Current in-game science has no idea how they move or what materials they're made out of, but they can attack with technology-based weapons that are attached to their bodies, including lasers, drills, missiles and bullets. Monsters with Henger sub-types tend to have robotic or metallic features.

Hengers are complicated to unlock in many games. Often, several storyline events have to occur before they can be achieved and raised.

Etymology Edit

The word henge in Japanese means "to transform." Thus one who transforms would be a henger.

Its Japanese name is Hengā.
