Monokuma (モノクマ Monokuma) is an automaton, mass-produced version of the original Monokuma which appears in Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls. He is much larger than the original Monokuma and only repeats a few recorded lines, his primary purpose being killing humans. Monokuma is the most common enemy to Komaru Naegi.
Similar to the original Monokuma, he is a robotic bear that his whole face and body are divided by the center into two parts. It resembles the Yin-Yang symbol, of which there is a balance between good and evil. At times, Monokuma would show his good side in a normal conversation but would turn to his bad side when he is angry or ruthless. Its right side is white and has the classic expression of a teddy bear; While its left side shows a more sinister appearance. It is black, has a red vertical stripe for an eye and an evil smile.
He is 1 time bigger than the original Monokuma. Although it is completely divided into two opposite sides, the only parts of Monokuma that are not affected by the division in its area are the snout and the belly, since both remain white. He also has a large, obvious belly button on the underside of his belly. His protruding navel has an "X" shaped mark on it.
Monokuma, as a non-sentient robot, they have only one purpose: to destroy all adults and take over the world to cause despair.
Prior The Tragedy
Monokumas were created by Monaca in order to help Junko Enoshima to mass produce Monokumas by using her position as a representative of the Towa Group. She lied to her father and the other adults in order to produce the Monokumas, telling them that she wanted to create futuristic robots that could be domestic helpers and emergency aid workers. Due to her separation from the family and her genius, her family decided to give her leg room to do what she wanted as long as she brought in profits to the company, and didn't delve too deeply into her plans.
During The Tragedy
Later after the adults learned of the Monokumas' true use, Tokuichi Towa tried to stop the production, but Monaca blackmailed him to let her continue, warning that if he stopped her, she would tell Junko to spread the fact that the ones who made the murderous Monokumas were, in fact, the Towa Group. Monaca also gave her father the idea to make both Monokumas and weapons against them. Some months later, Monokuma Units murdered Tokuichi.
Although Monokuma Units weren't shown in the actual even of the Killing School Life they were shown on the monitors during the last Class Trial. The Monokumas were used as killing machines during the Tragedy.
Prologue - The Warriors of Hope
After the captives were locked up for one year and a half, the Monokuma units were released along with the Monokuma Kids. The Monokumas stormed Komaru's apartment and one pounded on the door to Komaru's room. Komaru, thinking someone had finally come to save her, starts to bang and plead for escape until the Monokuma unit stabs the door, missing Komaru's face by mere inches. The Monokuma breaks into Komaru's room and Komaru quickly flees, the unit chasing her.
Monokuma Units made a cameo appearance while the Tragedy was happening.
Monokuma units appear in Towa City when Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa are going to Monaca's hideout. Later Monokuma Units reappeared in Monaca's army. She used a bunch of Monokuma Units to launch her into space.
