Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony


Monokid (モノキッド) is one of the mascot characters and antagonists featured in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, appearing as part of a group called the Monokuma Kubs. With his siblings: Monotaro, Monosuke, Monodam, and Monophanie, they control the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles alongside Monokuma.

History

Creation

Danganronpa V3 CG - The Monokubs Entrance (8).png

Monokid, along with his four other siblings were created by Team Danganronpa, a group of people who created the famous reality show called Danganronpa, a series which tells the story about Killing Games. Monokid and the Monokubs' roles are to aid Monokuma in hosting the Killing Game.

It is unknown when they were created and in which Killing Game they started to appear. Their notable appearance is the last Killing Game entry, the 53rd season of the show.

Introduction

Danganronpa V3 CG - Pre-Game Kaede Akamatsu and Shuichi Saihara meeting an Exisal.png

Together with his father, Monokid and the Monokubs rule the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles. Monokid and his siblings use the Exisals to chase each of the students and take them to the gym. In the end, they chase Kaede Akamatsu and Shuichi Saihara, being the last students to reach the gym.

The Monokubs entered the gymnasium with their Exisals and they appeared before all the students, but after realizing that they're off-script and shouldn't be in the Exisals for their first appearance, they all jump out of their Exisals to talk to the students face to face. Although this seems strange to the students and raises many questions, Monokid and the others concentrate on incoherent things until at last, they realize that the students did not possess the appropriate clothes to be "Definitive Students", for which they give them new clothes. Realizing that Monophanie did not fulfill her task of giving them their "first memory", the Monokubs are forced to stop the beginning of the mutual killing game and wait another time, removing all of the students's memories of the event and giving them their "first memory".

It was revealed that this event happened right before the 53rd Killing Game occurred, when the students' memories were about to be fabricated by Team Danganronpa. As Kaede and Shuichi discovered that they were inside a giant cage, Monokid stated that no matter how loud she screamed, she would never get someone to listen to her and she could only was her waste time. Also, when Kaede spoke to Monodam, Monokid affirmed that it was his fault that Monodam did not open his heart to anyone, although he shows no remorse for the excessive bullying. The Monokubs then reappear on the academy monitors, telling the students to meet in the academy gym again to get the real start.

Monokuma's entrance

After all students arrived, the students were scared by the Exisals controlled by the Monokuma Kubs, gigantic robots used to force the students to do what they want intimidating them. Nevertheless, Rantaro Amami said that they would not cause them any harm with the Exisals, otherwise all of the students would already be dead, being flooded by Monosuke and Monokid by their intuition. When asked what it was all about, Rantaro saw how Monokid was about to state the reason but interrupted at the last moment by Monodam saying "It's a Killing Game". Annoyed to be snatched from his line, Monokid threatened Monodam that he would break his Exisal, which provoked all the Monokuma Kubs and began to fight each other. Their quarrels died down after their father, Monokuma, arrived.

The Kubs were happy to see their father back in the Academy and to start a new killing game. After the announcement, all students were shocked and looked at each other with suspicion as Monokuma and his children laughed. Monokid along with his siblings were shown in the monitors of the Academy to announce the daytime and nighttime and other events about the killing game. When Kaede came to her room to sleep, Monokid appeared and gave the key to Kaede to have access to her room, Monokid also gave her a "hint", which was that if she stole someone's key she will get the chance to kill someone, Kaede gets annoyed and yells at him, making Monokid flee scared that he just got chewed out.

When Kaito Momota commits violence against Monokuma, the Kubs appear to make the example of what happens when they break a school rule. When Monokuma explodes and "dies", the Kubs begin to cry for their father, thinking he is truly gone and then decide to give him a proper send off, by eating his remains.

Monokuma later reappeared the next day and made the Monokubs happy so see their father is still alive, and after he licked the Kubs as part of their "emotional reunion", he annonced his time limit Motive, with the Kubs reminding the students of said time limit in the day and nighttime announcements.

Monokid decided to commemorate their father's return by eating honey, though he ended up eating too much honey and got drunk, with the rest of the announcements up to Rantaro's body discovery revolving around his hangover.

First Investigation and Class Trial

Monokid and the other Monokubs reappear after Rantaro Amami's body is discovered, where Monophanie grabbed the cameras found at the crime scene to print and develop the photos. Later on, Monokid and the other Monokubs announced to the students to head to the basement. There the Monokubs showed up and gave to the students the printed pictures found at the crime scene, while Monokid spouted his usual nonsense.

When Kaede Akamatsu is voted as the blackened, Monokid and his siblings stop the other students from interfering in her execution by threathening to kill them with the Exisals, though this was stopped by Kaede. He assisted Monokuma in executing Kaede by pulling one the ropes that were used to slowly suffocate her

At the end of Kaede's execution, when the spiked lid of the piano was about to slam shut to destroy her corpse, Monodam, tired of his constant bullying and abuse, pushes Monokid to his demise, crushing him along with Kaede's body, leaving only his bloody damaged head, which disturbingly falls in front of the remaining students.

Monokid is later seen in Chapter 3 as a ghost inhabiting the right one out of three creepy rooms, briefly appearing on the screen whenever his room is entered.

At the begining of Chapter 5, Once all the Monokubs were destroyed, Monokuma is seen crying for his deceased children, though he dosen't even care enough to mention Monokid's name and almost immediately starts wondering why they even existed.

Monokubs' return

Danganronpa V3 CG - Monokuma's Funeral for the Monokubs (1).png

Monokid and his siblings were rebuilt by Monokuma after Kokichi Oma's Class Trial and began to be active once again to assist his father in the Mutual Killing Game, though since they all had their factory settings, they didn't remember anything that happened in their past lives and thus were confused at the current situation. Monokuma specifically brought them back so that he could regain power over the Exisals, as he cannot control them, but Monokid and his siblings can.

At the start of Chapter 6, Monokuma and the Monokubs, riding their Exisals, arrive and threathen to destroy K1-B0 for damaging the school as an attempt to end the Killing Game. K1-B0 reassures everyone to find the truth while he engages the Monokubs in combat, fighting them the entire time everyone else is investigating the real truth about he Killing Game. After Shuichi gathers enough information, he proposes to Monokuma, the Kubs and K1-B0 to solve this conflict in a Class Trial, Monokuma agreeing with these terms and ordering his Kubs to remove K1-B0's weapons so that he can participate.

Right at the begining of the final Trial, despite the fact Monokid and his siblings were all brought back not too long ago, Monokuma revealed he had a self-destruct button prepared which he'll promptly use to destroy the Kubs once again if they didn't participate in the Trial or if they just got on his nerves, causing them to be much more active in the discussion than ever before. But while the other Kubs are all incredibly scared and confused, Monokid dosen't seem to mind the situation all that much and still dosen't pay attention to what the students are saying, still focusing on irrelevant things such as who can speak louder, and thus unsurprisingly, was the first Monokub to be blown up while being certain that Monosuke was going to blow up first.

Monokid was revealed to be created by Team Danganronpa as one of the children of Monokuma.

Creation and Development

Danganronpa Another Episode Unused Siren Monokuma Design.png

Monokid's design appears to have been influenced by an unused design for Siren Monokuma which appears in the Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Official Setting Material art book. Both designs are references to the band Kiss.

Name


Monokid's name seems to come from his personality and appearance as he is loud and also his like of playing music (especially the guitar).

Alternate Fates


He also appears in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (Demo Version) along with his brothers. He first appeared when Yasuhiro Hagakure's body was found. He later appeared in the Class Trial along with his father and brothers. In the bonus mode Ultimate Talent Development Plan, Monokid and his siblings are headmasters of a Hope's Peak Academy like school.

Appearance

Danganronpa V3 Monokid Sprite (1).png

Monokid's appearance is similar to his father, Monokuma, but the part that is black on Monokuma is blue on him, though half of the blue on his face is white. Likewise, his eye is black with a red pupil, contrasting Monokuma's and he has bright pink cheeks. He has black chest hair and gray stars around both of his eyes,

Monokid's appearance seems to resemble the attire of the members of the popular hard rock band KISS. With Monokid and the band members having a star shape in their eyes, a Shoulder Armor and the way they both play the guitar.

Despite being a child robot, he has a deep and rough voice.

Personality

Monokid is a child-like robot. However, he also has a very bad mouth and a short temper, and he's considered the hooligan of the group. He is a noisy and vulgar bully. He enjoys rock music and playing his guitar, and occasionally shouts exaggerated high-pitched screams like a rockstar. He also apparently loves eating salmon and especially honey, which for some reason can make him drunk and mutter nonsense. In the bonus mode Ultimate Talent Development Plan, he is constantly seen lying on the floor, passed out from eating too much honey. As seen in the Anthology manga, as a robot he also likes to drink oil, though not as much as honey.

He appears to be the most unintelligent Monokub. He doesn't pay attention when others are talking and will randomly spout incoherent nonsense, making him the main cause of conversations getting derailed. He occasionally messes up words or says things backward, and loves to shout his catchphrase "Hell yeah!" He usually repeats things a lot whenever he gets excited over something.

Monokid is also most violent out of the siblings. He gets very excited about violence, claiming that it "turns him on"; He also enjoys goriness and loves it when Monophanie pukes from the sight and thought of blood and gore. He also habitually bullies Monodam, even though they should be comrades, and seems to use any opportunity he gets to abuse him for the tiniest reasons or for no reason at all. It's said that this is the reason why Monodam has closed his heart. Monokid also habitually breaks his guitar whenever he gets angry.

Despite his general aggressiveness, he sometimes panics and shouts loudly and fearfully, like whenever his father is angry or at one point when Kaede confronts him. He also seemed to panic and yelled for Shuichi and Kaede to wait when they ran away from his Exisal, seemingly not expecting that to happen. He also tells Monophanie to shut up and threatens her with bullying when she calls him a dummy. All of this might imply that he is secretly insecure. He also shows a more softer side during a scene in the Ultimate Talent Development Plan, after he crashes on a student and then feels bad about it and offers them honey. Following his death, Monotaro also claimed that Monokid had a "soft spot for abandoned kitties".

After Monokuma rebuilt him and the Kubs were under a threat of being exploded if they didn't make good arguments, Monokid was scared at first, but quickly seemed to lose the focus and just wanted to "spout bollocks and be a nuisance" and constantly kept shouting "hell yeah". After not listening to Monophanie's advice and claiming that Monosuke would get blown up instead of him, he was blown up by Monokuma.

Abilities

Controlling the Exisals

Monokid, along with the other Monokubs, are the only ones who can control the Exisals.

Monokid can control the Exisals on his command to manipulate the students into doing something since the Exisals carry dangerous weapons such as a saw and a gun. He also uses the Exisals to punish any students who break the school's rules.

Relationships

Family:

Monokuma

Monokuma is the self-proclaimed father of Monokid, Monotaro, Monosuke, Monodam and Monophanie.

He calls them his "adorable children" and seems even disturbingly attracted to them because they look like him and he loves his own looks. He is mostly annoyed and neglectful towards the Kubs, physically abusing them whenever they annoy him, and even stating that he tolerates them only because they're so cute.

Monokid tends to call his father "Papa Kuma". While he seems to respect his father a lot, he hates it whenever Monokuma licks his cubs, loudly protesting with "hell nooooo". When Monokuma was assumed dead, Monokid was shocked at first, though still trying to blame Monodam for everything. However, Monokid soon calmed down and agreed with the other Kubs that they should cook their father's remains. He was later surprised to find out that Monokuma is alive, though he was also annoyed that their father would pull such a cliché plot twist.

Monokuma Kubs

Monotaro, Monodam, Monophanie, and Monosuke are Monokid's siblings.

Monodam

Monokid loves to bully his brother, Monodam, both verbally and physically, even though they should be comrades. He also tends to blame Monodam for everything, no matter how illogical the suggestion would be.

Monokid says Monodam has "an ugly and cheap-looking body", implying that he may dislike him because of his different looks. It's said that this is the reason why Monodam has closed his heart. Monodam usually stays completely silent and doesn't seem to react to Monokid's hostile words nor actions.

In Chapter 1, Monodam surprisingly killed Monokid during Kaede's execution. He claims that he did it for the sake of solidifying the siblings' bonds, as Monokid was unable to live in peace with them due to his personality.

In the bonus mode Ultimate Talent Development Plan, Monodam is seen having his revenge on Monokid once again, as he seemingly kicks the other Kub while he is lying on the floor after eating too much honey.

Monotaro

Monokid seems to have some respect for Monotaro, finding him smart and dependable. However, due to his short temper, he can easily turn hostile towards him.

Monosuke

Monosuke is sometimes annoyed by Monokid due to his noisy personality and tendency to mess up words but often tries to correct him anyway.

After Monokid died, Monosuke didn't really care much, founding the new development quite interesting and assuming that Monodam simply killed Monokid because he had bullied him. While he doesn't care about Monokid, Monosuke keeps bringing up his death as a warning for the other Kubs, and he appears afraid of suffering the same fate.

Monophanie

The brothers, in general, seem more considerate towards their only sister, with even Monokid seemingly agreeing to speak more quietly when Monophanie suddenly falls asleep.

Monophanie seems to dislike Monokid for his personality, occasionally snickering at him and calling him a dummy. Monokid gets easily heated up by this, telling her to shut up and threatening her with bullying.

In Chapter 2, after Monokid's death, Monophanie strongly voices her dislike for him by stating that she always hated him and she bluntly says "screw Monokid".

Enemies:

Kaede Akamatsu

Both meet each other during the Killing Game. Monokid used to mock Kaede for her hope of getting out of the academy along with her other classmates, this being what eventually made Kaede fall into the trap of the Mastermind and be executed incorrectly. Even so, both share their execution.
