| Medarot 8 |
|Release Date||JP: August 28, 2014|
Medarot 8 is the eighth main installment in the Medarot series, released on August 28, 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS.
The game features a new cast of characters and over 200 Medarots to collect. Like previous games, it was released in Kabuto and Kuwagata versions where the player starts with Metabee or Rokusho, respectively.
The story follows a new protagonist named Salt (ソルト) and his adventures as part of the Laurel Detective Bureau, which investigates Medarot-related crimes.
 Battle system changes
The battle system has undergone several major changes in Medarot 8:
- The players now choose which Medarot to target when attacking or using a support action.
- When attacked, the player can choose which part to defend/evade with, giving them control over which parts are destroyed first.
- The team's leader Medarot is not revealed until their head part has been damaged.
- The mechanics for existing attacks/actions have been changed.
 Fan-made Medarot contest
A contest for fans to create their own original Medarot (or "Ori-Meda") for Medarot 8 was held prior to the game's release on Niconico Seiga. The contest was open for 2 months and received over 2000 entries. The three grand prize winners, to be added to the game as DLC at a later date, were Haikara-Mate (a schoolgirl type), Kimengar (an oni gargoyle type), and Time Faller (a clock type). There were also 10 runners up who received prizes but did not make it into the game.
As a reward for entering, everyone who submitted a Medarot design also received an in-game password for a downloadable battle music track (Medarot 2's "Strike Enemy") and a Star Medal (otherwise unobtainable).
 Pre-order bonus
Players who pre-ordered the game received a soundtrack CD featuring the new music tracks used in Medarot 8. The two versions received different soundtrack CDs, featuring completely different music tracks and artwork.
