Ogyos are pink, sturgeon-like fish that first appeared in Monster Rancher 3. Unlike regular fish, however, they travel by "swimming" through the air instead of actually swimming through water (although they are capable of doing both). They have a heart-shaped headpiece and semitransparent yellow ribbons coming from either side of their heads.
Ogyos rely on far-range attacks like ice beams and thunder that draw upon their own Life force, and their best stats are usually Intelligence and Speed. Ogyos have been described as being slightly domineering, and because they are proud, they are sometimes difficult to raise because of the stress level. When combined, they create beautiful, princess-like monsters.
Its name comes from the mythical Greek island of Ogygia, mentioned in Homer's Odyssey as home of the beautiful sea nymph Calypso.
