Mysterious Monsters is a trivia game show where contestants fight enemies in an RPG-like battle screen, purchase items from the shop, and try to survive through the final round with the most gold. The winner gets to choose a prize from The Fabulous Wall of Prizes.
Mysterious Monsters first stated under the working title Huber's Game Show and was revealed as a Patreon goal during Easy Livin' 2018. They followed up the announcement with the release of a playtest teaser under the official name Mysterious Monsters on December 11, 2018.
Despite not meeting the goal on Patreon, they decided to move forward with production after moving into The Studio. The game show premiered on March 19, 2019 ahead of their third anniversary celebration. In addition to the show premiere, they also held the Mysterious Monster Mash, a live version of the game show featuring members of the community as contestants.
Following the release of the special remote Season 1 finale on April 1, 2020, the show went on hiatus due to the global COVID-19 pandemic halting production at The Studio.
On September 17, 2020, Easy Allies announced that as part of their partnership with Roost, some of their series were launching on RoosterTeeth.com. Starting October 21, recent episodes of Mysterious Monsters, the Easy Allies Podcast, Frame Trap, Box Peek, and Achieve It Yourself! would be featured on the site. These shows were selected to serve as an introduction to Easy Allies and for the overall fit with Rooster Teeth's audiences. New episodes will still be posted around the same schedule on the Easy Allies YouTube channel and podcast feeds.
Rounds 1 & 2
Each player starts the game with 15 HP and 20 G, and they take turns picking one of the five monsters on screen, representing the different trivia categories. Then they pick a weak point and a question will be revealed along with a number representing the damage wage. If they answer correctly, the monster takes damage and the player earns ten times the wage in gold. When a monster is defeated, the player takes 20 times the wage in gold instead, and all the players who did damage to it gets a Lucky Loot shot, once per correct answer. However, when a player does not answer correctly, they will take the damage instead.
After 3 monsters have been defeated, players advance to the next round, keeping their items, HP, gold, and any effect already in place (such as combos).
Before the round starts, contestants have a final chance to buy items from the shop.
In this round all the players fight a boss at once. The host will ask various questions in rapid-fire style, and the contestants have to hit a box with an axe in order to answer. If they're correct, they do damage and earn gold as usual and the host proceeds to the next question, and if they're wrong, the other players will have the opportunity to buzz in. Players can also use items if they have any.
When the boss is defeated it changes into its final form for a numeric question. Players have ten seconds to hit the box as many times as they want, and the number of hits counts as their final answer. Whoever is closest to the correct answer gets 100 G.
Finally, whoever has the most gold wins the game. The winner gets to choose a prize from The Fabulous Wall of Prizes.
Reveals all the hidden numbers of a monster's weak points to the player for 10 G.
The player asks a competitor for a suggestion on the current question, and if the player takes it and it's correct, they bot get gold.
Allows player to exchange gold for various items before picking a monster, and before the final round.
- Cursed Amulet of the Three: Gives 30 times the wage in gold after a kill instead of 20.
- Cowl of Consistency: Grants 20 G for every correct answer in a row after the first.
