Monokumarz intro
Monophanie, along with her 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. Monophanie and the Monokubs' roles are to aid Monokuma in hosting the Killing Game.

It is unknown in which Killing Game they started to join, as well as their creation time. Their notable appearance is the last Killing Game entry, the 53rd one (also known as the Killing School 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, 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 his 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.

Together with her father, Monophanie and the Monokuma Kubs rule the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles. Monophanie and his siblings use the Exisals robots to corner the students to the gymnasium, where they started to fabricate a group of talentless fifteen students before participating the 53rd Killing Game. }}

Monophanie and her siblings control the mutual killing game of Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles with her 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. Monophanie is the only sister in the siblings and also the gentlest among them.


Monophanie along with her siblings were shown on the monitors of the Academy to announce the daytime 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. Monophanie began to cry for her father, later followed by his siblings, thinking he is truly gone. The Kubs then gone to commemorate their father's demise.

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

Monphanie and the others appear again during the first Class Trial, in which when Kaede Akamatsu is voted as the culprit her companions try to protect it from his execution, but nevertheless, the Monokuma Kubs threaten them with their Exisals so that they couldn't intervene with Kaede's execution.

During her execution, Monotaro along with the other Monokuma Kubs helped Monokuma to orchestrated the execution by pulling the rope tied to Kaede's neck, until she died from Asphyxia. At the end of the execution, Monodam killed Monokid by pushing him inside the slam-shutting piano's cover spikes.

Monotaro, Monophanie, and Monosuke are all shocked and confused as to why Monokid was executed as well where-as Monokuma simply brushes it off and stated that he at least has four more kids. After Monokuma left, the remaining Kubs questioned Monodam, but he simply states that it was "For their own good" before leaving as well.

Monotaro and Monophanie were both still bewildered, but Monosuke didn't think much of it and simply states that Monodam killed Monokid because he was bullying him. After this, the remaining Monokuma Kubs left the Class Trial room as well.

Monophanie along with the remaining Monokubs later appeared and found an inactive Monokuma. The Monokubs start crying over the fact that their "daddy" isn't active until another Monokuma pops up.

During the end of Chapter 3, Monotaro and Monophanie assisted Monokuma to execute Korekiyo Shinguji. During the execution, Monodam committed suicide by rushing past Monotaro and Monophanie and into the flame that was boiling Korekiyo alive, causing it to burn even more.

During Chapter 4, Monotaro believed he was a drunken husband and Monophanie was her wife and both of them started a romantic relationship afterward.

Monophanie's Fate

In Chapter 4's trial, Monophanie and Monotaro were involved in Gonta Gokuhara's execution. Monophanie was unknowingly carrying a robotic growing wasp inside her belly, and later she was killed after she gave "birth" to the insect where her belly was exploded, while Monotaro was sliced in half by the robotic wasp.

Monokubs' Return

Monokuma Kubs' refuting

Monophanie and her siblings were rebuilt by Monokuma once again after the end of Chapter 5. Monophanie and her siblings were later ordered to stop K1-B) from destroying the academy by using the Exisals in order to stop him from destroying the academy.

Monophanie and her siblings are once again present in the final Class Trial. Despite that, being brought back by Monokuma, her 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


In the original Japanese release, her name is Monofunny (モノファニー).

Monophanie is the only character to drastically change her name in the game's English localization from Monofunny to Monophanie. This could be to note that she is the only female member of her group.

Alternate Fates


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

Appearance

Danganronpa V3 Monophanie Sprite (7)

Monophanie's appearance is similar to that of her father, Monokuma, but the part that is black on Monokuma consists of pink and vertical magenta stripes on Monophanie. Likewise, her eye is white, contrasting Monokuma's. Unlike most Monokumas, her whole left eye occasionally glows white light instead of having a small red glow. She also has bright pink cheeks.

She wears a brown bikini top with a sakura flower printed on both sides. She wears a light pink flower and has a yellow pacifier. She also usually carries a big sunflower with her.

Personality

Monophanie is a child-like robot with a feminine personality. Her personality appears much more gentle than her brothers, and her kindness is mentioned to be "a unique character trait", which seems to make her somewhat well-liked by her father and siblings, though it can also annoy the other bears who are more openly "evil". She isn't good with gore and cruelness, which is why she is very often seen vomiting, with the vomit even turning different colors depending on situation.[3]

In general, Monophanie is considered "the cute one", with a tendency to do cute things like trying to solve the killing game via rock-paper-scissors, or suddenly falling asleep, and liking flowers. She is also mentioned to dislike nasty things like gore and bugs. When the siblings begin their usual fighting, she often plays the mediator and seems to dislike arguing, but in the end, she always ends up joining in the fight. While often seeming very gentle and sensitive, she also has a tough side, like when she threatens to defeat all of her four brothers all by herself with her Exisal. She also hits Monotaro multiple times in the head with a frying pan in an attempt to fix his memory. She has referred to herself as a "strong, sensual woman" and says that she should't be underestimated because she's a girl.

Despite her kind demeanor, she can speak in mean and vulgar manner just like her father and siblings, and has a ruthless side. She tends to say things with somewhat mixed messages, beginning her sentence with kindness and then ending it with cruel indications. She may express worry towards others, but ultimately seems quite cruel like her other kind. Being a Monokuma, she indeed seems to be evil and messed up even though sometimes appearing nice.

Spoilers start here.
She is shown to act somewhat like a fangirl towards her father and even appears to feel some attraction towards him. She also agrees to have a romantic relationship with Monotaro after he begins to have severe memory issues, only reminding him about their family relation once and ultimately not really seeming to care. Due to his memory issues, Monotaro is seen acting abusive towards Monophanie at times, making her sad but also feel bad for him due to his condition. She is shown to be the type who is happy as long as her partner is.
Spoilers end here.


Relationships

Family:

Monokuma

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

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.

Out of all the Monokubs, Monophanie seems to admire and respect their father the most, often praising him and saying how cool and handsome he is. She even licks him back when he licks all of the cubs' faces and it's shown that she apparently has some attraction towards Monokuma (which isn't that surprising considering that she later had a relationship with Monotaro). Monokuma also seems to like Monophanie the most due to her unique kind personality and general cuteness, creepily stating that he could eat her up, which startles even her. She tends to call him "daddy".

In Chapter 4, Monokuma decides to kill both Monotaro and Monophanie during Gonta's execution, giving a petty excuse that they had been ignoring him.

Monokuma Kubs

Monotaro, Monokid, Monosuke, and Monodam are Monophanie's siblings. They all tend to bother each other, with Monophanie being the only one who tries to remedy everything, but always ending up getting into the conflict. The brothers seem more considerate towards her, as she is their only sister.

Monotaro

Her being the only sister, Monotaro appears somewhat fond of Monophanie, and seems to respect her more than the other siblings. Monophanie also seems to like Monotaro the most, as he's the responsible and "kind" type.

In Chapter 4, Monotaro's memory turned worse and he forgot his own identity as well as who Monophanie was. He then begun to act romantic towards Monophanie, saying he had never thought of her that way before. Though Monophanie tried to remind him they are family, she didn't really care and they then begun a strong romance. However, the next morning, Monotaro is seen acting completely different, kicking crying Monophanie and demanding her to give him money like an abusive husband, seemingly due to his memory issues. Because of this, Monophanie hides, causing Monotaro to panic since he can't remember anything. However, Monophanie feels bad for him and later takes him back, and he apologizes as the two of them cry. The announcement then ends with "the end", as if it were all theater.

Later, when Miu's corpse was found, Monophanie tried to cheer up his crying "husband". However, the two argue again, as Monotaro is convinced Miu was his mother and wishes to help the students in order to avenge her. Later, right before Gonta's execution, Monophanie begins to feel pain in her stomach and the two assume that she's having a baby. However, this turns out to be part of the execution, as a giant insect bursts out of Monophanie like in a horror movie and kills both of the Kubs.

Spoilers end here.


Monosuke

While the brothers in general seem more considerate towards their only sister, Monosuke dislikes Monophanie's attempts to be nice and make peace, as he believes that as the Monokuma Kubs they should fight each other.

However, during one scene, Monosuke acts charming towards her and offers to buy her a drink.

Monokid

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.

Monodam

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

Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles

Monotaro 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.

However, unlike the other Monokubs, Monophanie always tries to be kind to them even though they are mean to her. She always tells them that they shouldn's fight or try to kill each other and solve this by just giving up and die all together to end the killing game.
