List of recruitable monsters in Dragon Quest Builders 2

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Monster scouting becomes available to the builder after obtaining the Wrangler's Ring from Molly in Skeletraz.

In order to recruit the monsters, the builder must first defeat the monster and then give them Monster munchies, if they show interest in becoming friends. There are four conditions for monsters to join the builder: have obtained the Wrangler's Ring, be in an explorer's shore (or Skeletraz), the monster needs to be of a certain species -not all monsters can be recruited, only the ones listed below-, and have enough room in Isle of Awakening.

The following list aims to clarify which monsters can be scouted and where, and their behavior in the Isle of Awakening and Buildertopias once befriended.
