This is about the anime characters. For the monster itself, see Magna.
Although the first Magna is just a simulation, a real Magna appears in the same episode in the Aurora city square.
In the Monster Rancher card game that is based on the anime series, it mentions that Genki meets a Magna atop Mt. Albista in one of the episodes, and that the monster gives the boy a boomerang as a sign of their friendship. However, this inexplicably never happens in the actual tv series.
