Monokumarz intro
Monodam, 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. Monodam 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 one (known as the Killing Game Semester.

Exisals ambushing the students

After the students woke up and left the classroom, the Monokubs began to drag every student to the gymnasium. After every student entered the gym, the Monokubs entered the gymnasium with their Exisals and they appeared before all the students by jumping from their Exisals, showing their robotical body that has a shape similar to bear. Although this seems strange to the students and raises many questions, Monodam 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, the Monokubs are forced to stop the beginning of the mutual killing game and wait another time, restarting everything and returning some memories to all the students.

It was revealed that this event happened right before the 53rd Killing Game occured, when the students' memories were about to be fabricated by Team Danganronpa.

Monodam and his siblings control the mutual killing game of Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles with his father Monokuma. They are the controller of the Exisals, a robotic beast they use as their personal robots to punish students who defy the school's rules. Monodam is the quietest member of Monokubs, because he was bullied a lot by Monokid that he closed his heart from everyone, including his siblings.

Afterwards, the Monokubs retreat and reappear when Monokuma made his debut, explaining the rules of their new lives in the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles Killing Game (However, he didn't actually talked).

Monotaro along with his siblings were shown in the monitors of the Academy to announce the day time and nighttime and other events about the killing game.

When Kaito Momota was about to attack Monokuma, the Monokubs appeared to punish him, that was until they accidentally squished Monokuma with the Exisals, which resulting in his explosion. Monodam was shocked but still was quiet, later followed by his siblings, thinking he is truly gone. The Monokubs then gone to commemorate their father's demise.

Monodam was the only Monokub to appear in the monitors due to the other preparing a funeral

Later Monokuma reappeared the next day and made the Monokubs happy to see that their father is still alive.

Monodam appeared once again along with the other Monokubs when Rantaro Amami was dfound dead. He and the other Monokubs grabbed the cameras found in the crime scene to print the photos that were token during the incident.

Later Monodam and the other Monokubs announced to the students to head to the basement. After Kaede and Shuichi arrived the Monokubs showed up and gave to the students the printed pictures found in the crime scene.

Monodam and the others appears again during the first Class Trial, in which when Kaede Akamatsu is voted as the culprit, some of her friend try to stop her from being executed, but nevertheless, the Monokubs threaten them with their Exisals so that they couldn't intervene with Kaede's execution.

Monodam's Rebellion

Post the first Class Trial, Monodam who got tired with Monokid's constant bullying decided to kill him by shoving him inside a spiked piano in Kaede Akamatsu's execution, effectively destroyed his body when the piano slammed shut. Monodam claimed that the reason why he did this was to unify his siblings and solidify the bonds that they shared, as he saw Monokid nothing more than a noisy trouble maker.

Seeing that Monosuke later become a hindrance for the siblings, Monodam made Monosuke got involved in Kirumi Tojo's execution and destroyed in the process in Chapter 2's Class Trial when his body got crushed by Kirumi's falling body.

At some point, Monodam turns against Monokuma, accusing him of treating his children like slaves. Since the Monokubs have Exisals on their side, Monokuma is forced to surrender and decided to take a vacation from the Ultimate Academy and leave it to his children. Monodam toked he's place temporarily to host the Ultimate Academy and the students as he was gone to go on vacation for a short amount of time.

Eventually, Monodam took his own life as he burnt himself in the fire in Korekiyo Shinguji's execution after he saw himself couldn't befriend with his siblings anymore, he also made the flames boil Korekiyo even more as he was being burned alive.

Monokubs' Return

Monokuma Kubs' refuting

Monotaro and the other Monokubs were rebuild once again by Monokuma after they all died during the executions in each chapter as each one of them died.

Monokuma and the Monokubs, riding their Exisals, arrive and threaten to destroy K1-B0 for damaging the school and ending 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 investigation the real truth about the Killing Game.

Monodam and his siblings are once again present in the final Class Trial, but this time he is much more vocal, and is also much more invested in the discussion this time than how he was in any prior trial, actively trying to refute evidence that the survivors presented.

Despite that, being brought back by Monokuma, his father had a self-destruct button prepared which he promptly used to destroy the Kubs once again when they got on his nerves or did anything to anger him.


Creation and Development

Name


Like Gundham Tanaka, Monodam's name is a reference to the Gundam mecha anime series. His much stronger resemblance to a stereotypical robot compared to the other Monokuma units can also be seen as further referencing it.

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, Monodam and his siblings are headmasters of a Hope's Peak Academy like school.

Appearance

Danganronpa V3 Monodam Sprite (1)

Monodam's appearance is similar to that of his father, Monokuma, but the part that is black on Monokuma is olive green. Likewise, his right eye is gray with a red pupil while his left eye is white. He also has light gray cheeks, meant to represent blushing, and a yellow pacifier in his mouth to represent the fact that he is a child.

While all the siblings are robots, Monodam is more robotic in appearance, his limbs being made of gray, bendable metal. He also speaks in a stereotypical, monotone robotic way.

When he gets nervous, his ears pop up, releasing steam. Like a rocket, he is also capable of flying forward very fast, leaving behind a trail of bright light. He can also extend and retract his limbs to a small extent.

Personality

Monodam is a child-like robot. Unlike his overly talkative siblings, he is very quiet. For the most part, he doesn't speak even to his fellow siblings, and he is somewhat of an outcast in the group.[3] He sometimes appears a bit shy and seems to be blushing, like during the time when he made his first official announcement.

When he does talk, Monodam speaks in a typical monotone robotic manner, making him appear very emotionless and thus unpredictable. He tends to silently stare at others, with no visible reaction when others speak to him. He occasionally speaks short sentences unexpectedly in a rather loud voice, which may startle others due to his usual silence. The rare moments when he laughs sounds especially unnatural due to his very robotic voice. All of this causes him to come across rather creepy, much more so than his siblings.

Monodam is constantly bullied by Monokid, both verbally and physically, possibly because of his different looks. Monokid has fun making up new ways to be cruel towards Monodam and he also tends to blame Monodam for anything that goes wrong. This is said to be the reason why Monodam has closed his heart long ago. He appears to protest very little against the abuse he endures. However, it's later shown that he seems to act more independent than the other Kubs, like when he arrived to deliver Kubs Pads by the students' request all by himself and mentioned that the other Kubs were asleep.

Later, Monodam's character takes even darker turn, as he suddenly kills the siblings who bullied him and forces the rest into submission with threats of violence, making even Monokuma creeped out of his actions. He even forcefully takes Monokuma's place and becomes a temporary headmaster, accusing Monokuma of treating his children like slaves, though later Monokuma claims that he was just taking a vacation and gave the Kubs the place. Monodam turns very passive aggressive, saying that everyone should get along and be friends... or else "he won't forgive them". Claiming everyone is friends and everything should be harmonious, Monodam even appears to be against murders and the killing game, though he later seems fine with them since the class trials increase the students' unity. In the end, he ends up killing himself by running into flames during an execution, because he saw himself as incapable of getting along any longer with his siblings.

Monodam's hidden aggression seems to be hinted at in the Prologue, when the Kubs use their Exisals to chase the students into the gym—while the other Exisals are seen taking slow steps, Monodam is seen charging towards Kaede and Shuichi at full speed.

After Monokuma rebuilt him, Monodam started to become a little more concerned for his siblings and started to talk more than he used to. He also became more aggressive during the final Class Trial and started to participate unlike the previous ones, trying to protect his sibilings and the mastermind.

Spoilers end here.


Relationships

Family:

Monokuma

Monokuma is the self-proclaimed father of Monodam, Monotaro, Monokid, Monosuke 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 Monokubs, physically abusing them whenever they annoy him, and even stating that he tolerates them only because they're so cute.

Monodam tends to call Monokuma simply "father".

When Monokuma was assumed dead, Monodam appeared very shocked, but still remained completely silent.

Later, Monodam turns against Monokuma, accusing him of treating his children like slaves. Since the Kubs have Exisals on their side, Monokuma is forced to surrender (though he later claims he was simply taking a vacation and gave the Kubs the job). Even Monokuma seems creeped out by Monodam. When Monodam later commits suicide, Monokuma is shocked at first, but then seems to think that his own child committing suicide is just adorable.

Spoilers end here.


Monokuma Kubs

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

Monokid

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.

Monosuke

Monosuke seems to find Monodam a bit boring due to his silence and wishes he would talk more for the sake of entertainment.

After Monodam murdered Monokid, Monosuke finds the turn of events very interesting, but also becomes suspicious of Monodam and keeps reminding the other cubs of what he did.

During the second trial, Monodam repeatedly defends Monosuke after his slip-up provides the students critical information. However, Monosuke does not appreciate this and keeps his belief that the Kubs should be hostile towards each other, causing Monodam to murder him during the execution.

Spoilers end here.


Monotaro

Monotaro seems a little upset and surprised that Monodam refuses to speak even to him.

Monophanie

In general, Monophanie seems to like Monodam. She thinks he is cute whenever he is being shy.

Ultimate Acdemy Students':

Monodam and the Monokubs are all under the control of the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles' students and host the Killing School Semester along with his father. The Monokubs usually call the students' "bastards" to imitate his father, as he always calls the students by using that. The Monokubs also always give to the students the awards after completing the Class Trial by making it out alive.

Unlike the other Monokubs, Monodam doesn't really interact with them that much and usually keeps quiet or ignores them due to his hearth being close and refusing to talk to others.
