Moonlight Sculptor Pet Guide: How to tame monsters

Progressing through the game will eventually allow you to learn the skill to tame pets. Monsters can be tamed using Feed and made into companions that assist in combat. Pets can also grow through combat experience, and they have various skills by each type that help with the progression of the game.

There are 3 types of pets in Moonlight Sculptor. Field monsters can be tamed and made into companions by using Pet Feed items and “Taming”.

  • Pet (Common): You can tame monsters and make them your pet.
    • The summoned pet will help you in battles.
  • Mercenary: Mercenary Contracts will allow you to hire Mercenaries for a limited period of time to help you in battles.
  • Buddy: These pets don’t participate in battles, but will instead pick up items for you.
    • There are different tiers of Buddy available and the Buddy summoned will give their boosts to the character.


“Pet Feed” can be purchased from a Pet Supply Merchant. Make sure you have reached level 45 first in order to purchase or sell items from Pet Supply Merchants like Lydia. 

Use feed suited to a monster’s palate for a chance to tame them as a pet. The chances of taming a monster are influenced by the character’s Charisma.

  • Use Pet Feed and select the desired monster to tame them as a pet.


Go to “Pets” in the menu to manage and summon pets. If a pet is currently summoned, the pet’s level and HP are shown on the screen.

If a pet’s summoning is canceled or they become unable to fight in the middle of combat, they can be summoned again after a period of time. To summon them without having to wait for a period of time, a “Subjugation Scroll” item is needed.


Battle alongside your pet to obtain XP and increase the pet’s own level. Use Blue Star Tablets for even quicker pet growth.


In addition to common monsters that are tamed and obtained as pets, “Mercenaries” and “Buddies” obtained through Shop purchases and events can also be managed on the Pet screen.

You can purchase and hire Mercenaries from the Shop, and they will aid in the battle for a certain period of time when summoned. Mercenaries are able to use the skills of human-type characters and do not grow beyond the level they were purchased at.

Important note: You cannot contract a mercenary with a level gap of 20 or more. You can contract multiple mercenaries at once, but only 1 mercenary can be summoned at a time.

Buddy Contracts can be purchased from the Shop, and they can be tamed by using contracts. Buddies do not participate in battle but can assist you in picking up items. Some Buddies can also grant specific buffs (example: Increases XP gained from defeated enemies).

You can spend Buddy Feed purchased from the Shop to use Buddy’s Errand function. The General Storage Box can be accessed when using the Errand function, and items can be stored or retrieved from there.

The last thing to remember is that Pets, Mercenaries, and Buddies can be summoned at the same time. Try forging ahead together on tougher adventures.
