My Singing Monsters is a mobile game that's exactly what the name suggests. The game became a hit, being nominated for several awards and even getting a prequel.

There isn't a lot of monsters, but theres lots of other stuff

Unused Monsters

PongPing

PongPing was a monster that was mean't to take the place of Shellbeat. It appeared from versions 1.0.0 to 1.0.2. It had text for its name and description, with its description being the same as Floot Fly's (I'm green). Its design is currently unknown, as its portrait is just a blank portrait with the text "ABCD" slapped onto it.

Floot Fly

Floot Fly was an early version of Quarrister, which appeared from versions 1.0.0 to 1.0.4. It only had text for it and a breeding icon. BBB revealed its full design in a twitter post to tease at it being added back to the game with the release of Faerie Island.

My Singing Monsters Floot Fly.png

Mimic

A scrapped 5-element monster from Version 1.0.4 that didn't have any sprites in-game, but had its name and a description in the text file. Its description read as follows:

The Mimic monster is an extremely unique monster among the rabble. They have three legs and they are surrounded by mysterious atmosphere. They contain luminous substance, so when they is danger, those substance lightens up to protect Mimic.

In the Extra Life stream Big Blue Bubble did on Twitch, they showed the Mimic's design and explained its intended purpose: You would've been able to record your own voice and the Mimic would play the recording. The function was reused for the Recording Studio, while a bit of its design was reused for the Rare Clamble.

Thumb

In the monster_data.xml file in the root, there is code relating to the max coins, coins per minute, and the amount food required to level up Mimic. The file refers to Mimic as "Secret Quint Element" and also includes a link to a meme website. Big Blue Bubble probably added this part to monster_data.xml to fool people looking into their game. There is also some other stuff relating to Mimic, like the amount of xp you would gain by placing Mimic (357143), Mimic's size (1x1), the amount of diamonds it would cost (250), and the time it would take in the breeding structure or nursery (48 Hours).

Early Breeding Portraits

Cybop

Found in version 1.0. It is a rough drawing of Cybop.

Reedling

Msm beta reedling portrait.png

Found in version 1.0. It is an early sketch of reedling, which looks no way like the final design.

Scups

My singing monsters beta scups portrait.png

Found in version 1.0. It is concept art for Scups.

Pompom

Msm beta pompom portrait.png

Found in version 1.0. Like Scups, it is concept art.

Riff

Msm beta riff portrait.png

Found in version 1.0. Like Scups and Pompom, it is concept art.

PongPing

Msm beta shellbeat portrait.png

Found in version 1.0. PongPing is Shellbeats early name.

Floot Fly (Pre 2.3.5)

MSMunused.png

This was a placeholder for quarrister. Big Blue Bubble made a social media post showing its design. It appears that it would've played some sort of whistle (it’s possible the reason it was excluded was due to being similar to the Reedling).

This monster did eventually get used in version 2.3.5, where it was given the Faerie element.

Celestials Portraits

With the lack of a castle for the Memory Game and a Breeding Structure on Celestial Island, these Monster Portraits go unused. However, the first 5 can be seen in the My Singing Monsters Official Guide.

Early Air Island Tree Sprites

MSM early air island tree sprites.png

The only difference in this is that the big and medium trees have a branch missing, and the big trees leafless branch is shaped differently.

Construction

MySingingMonsters-ContructionSite.png

In the files for the structures, there is a unused Construction Site, which was originally used in early versions of the game when upgrading or building a structure

Dead Shrub Decoration

In the files for the official guide, there is an unused decoration called dead_shrub

MSM Dead Shrub.png

Hornless Epic Maw Body

In Epic Maws sprite sheet there is a duplicate of its body except without the horns

MSM Epic Maw Body No Horns.png

Blank Mech Element

In the 1.1.6 dlc, there is a blank unfinished mech element that is just the background with no mech icon.

My Singing Monsters Blank Mech Element.png

Old Supernatural Element

In the 1.1.6 dlc there is also a version of the Supernatural element that doesnt have any electricity around it. It was changed in 1.1.7

Generic Holiday Element

In 1.1.6, theres an element called generic_holiday that has the design of the legendary icon, just without the rays of light. It probably would have appeared as the element for all seasonals. It was removed in 1.1.7.

MSM Generic Holiday Element.png

Hornless Epic Dandidoo Head

In Epic Dandidoos sprite sheet there is an unused hornless head sprite.

MSM Hornless Epic Dandidoo Head.png

Level icons past level 20 (Old GUI style) and level 0

In early versions of My Singing Monsters, there were level icons for levels past level 15, meaning they had planned for monsters to go past level 15 in the very beginning. There was also an icon for level 0, which also appears in the new GUI art style.

My Singing Monsters Level Icons Past Level 15 Old Style and Level 0.png

Epic Mammott open smile mouth

Mammott has a mouth of an open smile that went unused until Shugabush Island released, where it was used. It was then used again on Composer Island. Due to Epics not being on Shugabush Island or Composer Island, this mouth goes unused. This mouth does appear in Epic Mammott's image from the My Singing Monsters fankit, though that still doesn't make it not unused in the actual game.

Obscured Graphics

Dragongs Neck Eye

On the neck sprite for Dragong, there is an eye on the spot where the head goes. It is possible that this would have been used and Dragong would have never had a head.

My Singing Monsters Dragong's Neck Eye.png

Cybops Unused Eyeball and Pupil

On Cybops head sprite, there is an unused pupil and eyeball on it. the colour of the pupil is red, and is very similar to the pupil in the concept art of cybop. This eyeball and pupil can be seen on the head sprites for the Natural, Rare, and Epic Cybops.

Cybop
Rare Cybop
Epic Cybop

Green Part of Floot Flys Head

In Floot Flys head sprite there is a green patch that is covered up by a mask sprite when in game. It is probably a reference to Floot Flys "I'm green" description in 1.0.4

MSM Floot Fly Head.png

Unused Animations

Ghazt (Composer Island)

The monster Ghazt has unused animations and sounds for Composer Island. These animations were later used in My Singing Monsters: Composer.

Flowah (Light Island)

In the Light Island Recording Studio, Flowah uses a unique animation for its second track. However, while its second track is heard in the song itself, the Flowah strangely uses its animation used for its first track.

Unused Sounds

Prototype Dandidoo Sound (Tribal Island)

This is a prototype sound for Dandidoo in Tribal Island. It was sung by Dave Kerr, composer of My Singing Monsters. It was in the game files when Tribal Island first came out and had a chance of appearing in game. It was removed from the game an update later.

Prototype Brump Memory Game Sound

In the 1.4.0 APK for My Singing Monsters, there was an unused memory game sound for Brump. Its sound resembles the sound of the Dermit, but it sounded much more like a Mammott than a new Monster. It was probably scrapped since the original name for the Wublins were the Underlings, and Brump wouldn't have been able to sing "Wake up the Wublins".

Prototype Thwok Memory Game Sound

In the same version as the Brump memory game sound, there was an early version of Thwok, having the same tune as the final game, but a different bass instrument.

Glowls Non-existant Fire Oasis Track 2

There are references to a track 2 of Glowl on Fire Oasis in the files of the game, but the sound doesnt exist in-game.

Unused Text

Developing/Test Text

There are some text lines in MSM either put in for developing or for testing purposes. These are some of them

LEAVE THIS LAST IN THE MASTER TEXT

TEST

Mimic's Bio

Mimic was a 5 element monster that would later become the Recording Studio. In versions 1.0.0 to persumably sometime around the release of Sox, it's bio was in the game's files. The bio has some broken English, possibly meaning it was originally done by someone who didn't speak English, and then got translated.

The Mimic monster is an extremely unique monster among the rabble. They have three legs and they are surrounded by mysterious atmosphere. They contain luminous substance, so when they is danger, those substance lightens up to protect Mimic.

Placeholder Android Share Text

In version 1.0, before the game released on Android, there was placeholder text for when sharing the game to a friend. The link leads to a game called "First Kids Puzzles: Snakes". This game was probably chosen because one of the workers at BBB's kid played the game.

I'm playing this cool new game My Singing Monsters and I thought you might want to try it out.

Just click on this link:

Early Wubbox Bio

In 1.1.4, Wubbox has an early version of its bio, where the last part of it is missing and it says that wubbox produces diamonds

Eureka! The Wubbox awakes! As it turns out, this extraordinary Electric elemental is vital to the life processes of the colossal island monsters that the other singing denizens call home. The shrunken monsters used to powerup the creature report that the inside is as fun as any playground they've ever seen, so they are happy to stay indefinitely.

The Wubbox's unique energies can conjure Diamonds out of thin air! The robotic chirps and whistles it uses to express itself can take some getting used to, but eventually become a beloved and inextricable part of the island's tune. Besides, it's all the rage in "current" music. 

Unused Gui

admin_store.xml

A version of the market for admins that most likely has everything in it for free.

empty.xml

This file is what the title of it says. Just a blank gui template.

hud_admin.xml

A short menu file that links to template_admin_panel.xml.

template_admin_panel.xml

An admin panel with a header saying "ADMIN PANEL" and 3 options: BBB_Id Entry, SupportID Entry, and Web Tool. This admin panel could be seen in the Fire Oasis reveal episode of My Singing Monsters Live. Each of the buttons on it have Bowgart's egg on them. There is a gap between BBB_Id Entry and SupportID Entry, meaning that there might have once been a 4th button inbetween those 2. BBB_Id Entry probably gives people items in their mailbox, SupportID Entry probably gets someones account back if they lost it, and the Web Tool is currently unknown.

MSM Admin Panel.png

template_admin_view_panel.xml

This seems to be a way to switch between islands quickly, and delete them if you want to. Each of the buttons have Deedge's egg as an icon. The code for it says that if the player has more than 1 island then the panel would appear, but if they don't it won't appear. Its look is currently unknown, but a mockup can be seen below.

My Singing Monsters Admin View Panel Mockup.png

template_admin_goalcontrols.xml

This was probably used to auto complete goals.

test_select_egg.xml

Most likely was used as a test for selecting monsters to breed.

Oddities

Ziggurab Book of Monsters Design

For some reason, Ziggurab in the book of monsters uses its Dawn of Fire design, instead of its design from My Singing Monsters. This may have been used as a placeholder for its icon during testing, and they forgot to change it.

Ziggurab Book of Monsters Design Its Dawn of Fire Design Its My Singing Monsters Design
My Singing Monsters Ziggurab Book of Monsters.png My Singing Monsters Dawn of Fire Ziggurab.png My Singing Monsters Ziggurab.png

T-Rox as the single elemental of Earth

In the names for T-Rox's sprites, the element letter for it is C (the letter for Earth) instead of CDE.

Meet the Monsters early monster bios

Early Mammott bio

In the Mammott image, the bio starts off with "A" instead of Mammotts. the apostrophe is also before the s in Mammotts instead of after.

Msm mammott press release image.jpg

Early Furcorn bio and Furcorn as the single elemental of Plant

The Furcorn image uses plural words in the bio. There is also the word "and" before delicate instead of a comma. An image of Furcorn from the press release (seen below) has Furcorn with only the Plant element.

Msm furcorn press release image.jpg

Early Maw bio

The Maw image is missing "Maws are a little mouthy. Tonguey too."

Msm maw press release image.png

Early T-Rox bio

For T-Rox the word "spikelets" was originally "spines".

Msm trox meet the monsters.jpg

Screemu releasing before Zuuker

The names of Screemu's sprites called it U06, indicating that it was meant to release before Zuuker.
