Falcos are muscle-bound, humanoid bird monsters introduced in Monster Farm DS. The basic design is reminiscent of Egyptian brick, and when used in combining, the sub-breeds often have a distinctly Egyptian appearance, involving mummies or hieroglyphics. They're not quite as big as Golems, but they're still pretty large.
Falcos have a connection with the Abyss, another Egyptian monster family. Because Falcos are light monsters (related to Horus, the god of sun/life) and the Abyss are dark monsters (related to Anubis, the god of shadows/death), their powers counteract each other, much like Gali and Joker.
A breed of monsters known as Musculus appear in Monster Farm Online and Monster Farm Lagoon, and bear a strong resemblance to the Falco breed. Because of this, they have been listed under this family.
The name Falco obviously comes from the fact that it looks like a falcon, but the design is based on Horus, one of the oldest and widely-known Egyptian deities. He looks like a man with a falcon head, and is known as the lesser god of the sun and of life.
