Not to be confused with Rare Species, Lone Species, Origin Species, Variants, HC Monsters, Deviants, Supremacy Species, Special Species, Zenith Species, or Burst Species.

A subspecies (Japanese: 亜種 Ashu) is an alternate form of a monster. These monsters usually feature an alternate color palette and often boast different anatomical features and abilities from the common species due to evolving to adapt to specific environments. Subspecies can inhabit similar environments as the common species, but they can also sometimes be found in completely different locales, depending on the species of monster. Though subspecies are strong and rare, Rare Species are far stronger and rarer.
