Flare Death (フレアデス), B-rank

Carmine (カーマイン, kāmain) is an antagonist in Tiger of Freedom and is a Flare Death (フレアデス), a Joker/Dragon. His name based on the same elite monster in Monster Rancher 2.


Carmine is a new addition for the remakes to add extra danger to Tiger's group. MGW wanted a new powerful henchmen next to Velnias and Cinder Bird, and also to bump heads with the main villain. The word "carmine" means crimson, or a dark red pigment, reflecting his bright red garb and his vicious temper. Also, a monster from Monster Rancher 2.


Carmine in the MAJOR 4 tournaments (Monster Rancher 2).

In Video Games

While the monster type "Flare Death" is considered a B-rank monster, Carmine is one of the S-rank monsters that a player faces in the Big Four tournaments. It's intelligence, accuracy, and power scores are in the 700-800+ range, which gives it a high probability of defeating the player's monster in one hit via preemptive strike. Thus, it often attacks with "Death Energy" at the start of the round. Carmine has a wide following among the Monster Rancher fandom, and is given the name Carmine-sensei (カーマイン先生)[1][2][3] due to its infamy.
