A reptilian breed of Tiger whose early designs have large scaly plates and resemble a Triceratops, while later versions are dark green in color and have a more streamlined, lizard-like shape. This monster was borrowed heavily from the Dento of Monster Rancher 1.

Datonares are very similar to pure Tigers in terms of stats; the minor difference is a reduction in intelligence for higher defense.

A lime-green version of the Tiger is used as a non-playable level boss in Monster Farm Online, believed to be a Datonare. It appears when your character has reached rank E-1 and is weak against soil attacks. This species of Tiger is featured heavily in the anime series alongside its counterpart, the Daton.
