Reproducing Humbug may take several attempts, so don’t become disheartened if they fail the first time around. Just continue leveling up monsters and structures, asking friends to light torches for you, and being patient!
Humbugs are single-element Ethereals that can be purchased or bred on Earth Island for coin production, similar to Quarrister’s coin production.

Pair a Crumpler with a Pango
Drumplers and Pangos make for an engaging Monster Ranch duo. The Pango is an intriguing monster, producing its distinctive chattering sound to add musical accompaniment to island songs. However, unlike other monsters, it cannot fly and must stay on the ground, making movement across an island difficult and ensuring parts are challenging to access without help from Drumplers or another monster that can access certain areas more quickly.
The Drumpler is a dual-element monster first discovered on Plant Island. It contributes to an island’s song with an individual snare drum sound, which varies based on where you are playing – sometimes, single stroke and tremolo rudiments are combined for added effect! However, as with other dual-element monsters, the Drumpler may not produce as many coins per level, but it will still help level up Music Island!
To successfully breed a Drumpler, players require two monsters capable of producing its type of egg. This can be accomplished through breeding monsters such as Entbrat, Deedge, Oaktopus, or PomPom; participating in special events or using breeding structures can also produce the necessary eggs for a Crumpler.
Once two eligible monsters come together, they’ll start dancing and showing heart emoticons indicating they’re ready to breed. Buy a breeding structure and place the Monsters inside it; after some time, the Monsters will produce a Humbug egg, which can then be transferred into a Nursery where it must be fed and cared for regularly for growth.
Players can create the Epic Humbug by breeding Quarrister and Clamble on Earth Island, which produces an equivalent version with higher stats and a unique appearance. Once created, this monster must be fed until level 15 before being sent to Ethereal Island to be paired with Whisp and Bellowfish.
Light your torches
Lighting many torches at once is recommended to improve your chances of breeding a Humbug. Each torch increases breeding chances by a small amount; ten active torches are recommended at one time for best results; reserve any unlit torches for Friends or random visitors who might decide to light one when visiting your island – they’ll count as already lit when visitors choose to burn them! Leaving some unlit can also help when special breeding promotions arrive with limited-time Monsters available or higher breeding odds!
Nursery breeding structures are used to breed humbugs. When placed near Quarrister and Pango Monsters but away from other breeding structures that compete for food with them, when ready, their habitats will show heart emoticons indicating mating activity before an egg appears in the Nursery.
Once an egg hatches, please place it in a permanent habitat to develop into a Rare Humbug (see below), one of the best single-element Ethereals for producing shards.
Rare Humbugs can be bred like regular monsters, with only a 1% chance of success in any given breeding attempt. There are ways to increase those odds, though; try using a Wishing Torch and crossing each of the parents with another high-level monster as part of your plan.
Multiple breeding structures and nurseries will significantly speed up breeding and hatching times but keep monsters within these structures happy and well-fed so they produce eggs without stress. Otherwise, their production might decrease drastically.
As part of your strategy to breed rare monsters like Humbugs more successfully, promotional events with enhanced chances of breeding can also provide extra opportunities to do so. Take full advantage of them quickly when available – doing so can also provide money needed for maintaining your breeding structures and nurseries effectively.
Level up your monsters and structures.
Leveling up monsters and structures will allow them to breed faster, making the Epic Humbug much more likely. For optimal breeding times for this monster, try having Fwog and Drumpler at level 10 or above before breeding; higher levels are even better! It might also help if other players use forums or social media to light the torches on your island, as this will also speed up breeding/incubation times.
As your monsters level up, their visual size will change, not impacting their stats or footprint on the island. Furthermore, monsters can be “Biggified,” increasing their stats and visually stunning features.
If you want to collect more coins and shards from your monsters, increasing their Happiness percentage by placing objects they like close by is also an excellent way to do this. This will improve their earning rates and overall performance in the game.
Like with any monster, breeding a Humbug cannot be guaranteed; as it’s rare, it may require trial and error until finding the ideal breeding combination, but be patient and persevere, as this creature will eventually join your life!
The Humbug is an Ethereal monster with Poison as its element. Bred on Earth and Ethereal islands, this one-element monster provides high coin and shard production rates when combined with Quarrister or an element monster. Breeding time usually ranges between one day and twelve hours.
The Humbug has a body resembling a hornet, wasp, or bee. It features charcoal-gray and light greenish-yellow stripes of hairy strips with beaked facial features and can open supersonic dimensional highways between universes while its halteres detect weaknesses in reality fabric. Furthermore, it’s known for its long mouthparts for extracting nectar from tropical fruits.
Keep feeding your Humbugs.
Humbugs must be fed regularly to help them thrive, increasing their earning rate per minute or Shards per hour and the maximum Shards earned. This will increase both their maximum earning rate and the rate at which their coins and Shards accumulate over time.
Feeding the humbugs is simple: place food in their habitat and wait a couple of hours; provide again as necessary until the desired level has been reached. Furthermore, keeping their habitat free of dirt is paramount, as this will harm their health significantly.
Humbugs are one of the rare monsters players can breed to obtain in My Singing Monsters, requiring two monsters that produce eggs with that trait – such as Fwogs, Drumplers, or Oaktopuses – to create a clutch. For optimal breeding results, it’s advised that their breeding monsters gain at least ten levels before trying to raise one themselves; more levels mean quicker growth and reproduction rates!
Players should also pay close attention to promotional events, as this increases your chances of snaring a humbug and is an affordable way to secure one since buying it would typically require over 100 gems from stores.
Once players have successfully bred a humbug, it must be brought to their island and placed within its habitat. They can do this by placing it on Plant, Cold, or Air Islands – it would be ideal if these new monsters lived near trees!
As humbugs have a high mortality rate, they require frequent feedings and clean environments in which to live. Their bodies resemble bees, wasps, or hornets with charcoal-gray and light greenish-yellow hairy stripes on its body reminiscent of bee, wasps, or hornet bodies; breeding times usually last 12 hours with approximately a one percent chance of successful breeding. Seventy attempts give players 50% odds, and 690 offers 99.9%!
