Plants resemble large bulbs with two leaves and three flowers. They are capable of attacking with pollen or their leaf-like limbs, and one of their techniques involves shooting seeds from their flowers as if they were bullets. They also have the ability to drain an opponent's energy and use it as their own (normally to recover themselves after being injured). Plants are known for their long Lifespan and high Life stat in the games.

Plants go through a major change in design starting with Monster Rancher 3. They begin to only have one large flower instead of three and become far more "cartoony." Their shape becomes more circular and less pear-like.

Etymology Edit

Plant is named because its body looks like the root bulb of a plant and it has flowers.
