With the last of the Ultimate students out of the way, we now get an introduction to the Danganronpa V3 Monokubs! If you thought Monokuma was bad, there’s now 5 child Monokumas all vying to run the killing game! That sounds like it’s going to be a lot of trouble!
Monosuke is very opinionated and has no patience for Monokid’s foul language. That being said, he is also the most rational member of the Monokubs, and often falls into the straightman role within the group’s antics.
Monosuke believes that the Monokubs should be hostile toward each other, and approves of infighting among the group.
Short-tempered and foul-mouthed, Monokid is the most violent of the Monokubs.
He doesn’t really pay attention when others are talking, and will chime in seemingly at random to spout incoherent nonsense. He is often the reason that the group’s conversations suddenly derail.
Monokid loves to bully Monodam, and has subjected his sibling to so much abuse that his heart has grown cold and distant. He loves to pepper his sentences with the catchphrase, “Hell yeah!”
The childish, scatterbrained leader of the Monokubs. Monotaro often struggles to keep his rambunctious siblings focused on the task at hand.
The only female member of the Monokubs. She is the kindest member of the group, and has a weak stomach for gore and violence.
When the Monokubs squabble among themselves, Monophanie will try to smooth things over, only to end up joining the quarrel anyway.
She can be cute and endearing at times, though. Sometimes she’ll suddenly nod off, while other times she’ll suggest changing the killing game to something less violent.
Monodam’s heart has hardened due to the years of bullying he has endured. For this reason, he barely speaks to his siblings.
In stark contrast to the plushie appearance of the other Monokubs, Monodam is the only member with a distinctly robotic body.
I’m not sure how I feel about these Monokubs. Things can be chaotic enough in Danganronpa without the overseer of the killing game being split into 5 characters fighting among themselves, so I hope it doesn’t get too disjointed or grating. I suspect there’ll be an interesting reason behind the existence of the Monokubs though, and I can’t wait to find out what!
