The bad egg is an unknown monstrous egg with an evil eye and a small, sneaky red-lipped smile peering through the crack in the white shell. It rolls into battle and is ready to hatch into all sorts of weird and wonderful strange species. It's impossible to tell which kind of monster it will actually be until it hatches, if it gets a chance to before the battle ends.

It is, along with the capsichum, the only starting monster that can't be scouted later. Bad eggs can still be seen outside of battle, dwelling in the hades condor nests in Cragravation but cannot be fought.
