Monsters are the creatures featured in Aaahh!!! Real Monsters. According to Attack of the Blobs there are multiple species of monster.
Monsters have a seemingly unlimited variance in appearance, although ones who are related may share similar traits. Relative to humans monsters are fairly small, averaging around 1–3 feet in height. Monsters' bodies are extremely pliable and are capable of expanding to several times their original size or squeezing through small pipes with proper training.
Monster reproduction is a seemingly elaborate ritual involving placing the elbow on the knee, putting the thumb on the nose and waving the hand, ending with touching fingertips and forming a blob which hatches into a bonsty 30 days later.
While little is known about monsters' physical development beyond the earliest stages, it seems likely that they experience rapid development early in life which slows down when they reach adolescence. Aging from adolescence through late adulthood seems to progress very slowly, lasting hundreds of years. Aging may then speed up again when monsters reach old age. This would explain the extremely low numbers of juvenile and elderly monsters relative to adolescents and adults.
Monsters cannot survive in the oxygen-rich human world without first filling their breathing sacks with putrid air. Exposure to perfumes and air fresheners can incapacitate monsters and cause Nolox.
As shown in Garbage In, Garbage Out, monsters are extremely susceptible to starvation, and will begin to waste away after only a few days without food.
Monsters primarily eat garbage, and are shown to be capable on injecting almost anything from insects to metal. Monsters also sometimes eat other monsters, as seen in Monsters, Get Real!
The Gromble, Shroink, and Oblina have been heard speaking incomprehensible gibberish that may actually be a monster language. Monsters also their own unique terminology for many things, see: Monsters/Terminology.
