The Mynci as of January 2007

The Mynci is one of many different species that exist in Neopia. As a general rule Myncies are mischievous and cheeky, loving nothing more than playing pranks on other Neopets. A lovable creature and quite fun to have as a pet. Their agility and balance helps the Mynci to fly high gathering foods from the trees and high plains.

Mynci is the Welsh word for the metal hames in a harness, though it's likely Neopets confused it with the similar Welsh word "mwnci", meaning monkey. Both are homophones of the English word "monkey" when used in Welsh but according to the Neopets pronunciation key the pronunciation of the Neopet is "mwin-see" (in Welsh, the long w is pronounced as the oo in the English soon), but contradicting this is the fact that when the Mynci is clicked on in the game Techo Says, it pronounces its name "min-see".

The pet now known as the Mynci was originally named the Mellish, one of the original pets. It was based after a friend of Adam's. It was reworked into the Mynci on June 29, 2000.


As of July 2010, Myncies can come in 49 different colours:


  • As of March 2010, Mynci's are ranked 14th out of 54 available species with over 7.2 million created. They are featured in 137 different items.
  • In the Neopets TCG, Myncies are associated with the element of Earth.
  • Mynci Day is on February 22nd.
