Monokumarz intro

During the Killing Game, Monosuke and his siblings antagonized the students alongside Monokuma, forcing them to enjoy their Killing Game life.

Monosuke 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 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 vow to avenge his death. Later Monokuma reappeared the next day and made the Kubs happy so see his father was still alive.

Monosuke and the others Monokuma Kubs reappear after the murder of Rantaro Amami.

Monokuma and Kubs in CT

After Kaede Akamatsu was voted as the blackened, Monosuke and his siblings prevented the other students from interfering her execution by threatening to kill them using the Exisals. He assisted Monokuma in executing Kaede by pulling one of the rope that used to slowly hang Kaede.

During the execution, Monodam killed Monokid, which confused and make Monosuke, Monotaro, and Monophanie shocked. Monotaro and Monophanie are both still bewildered, but Monosuke doesn't think much of it and simply states that Monodam killed Monokid because he was bullying him. After this, the remaining Monokuma Kubs leave the participants of the New Killing School Life alone.

After sometime went past during the Killing Game, Monokuma decided to give a new motive to the students, Monosuke along with the other Kubs passed to each student a MonoPad which contained a secret about each one of them.

Later when Ryoma Hoshi was murdered, the Monokuma Kubs assisted his father during the class trial.

Monokuma mourning the Monokumarz

Once all of the Monokuma Kubs got destroyed Monokuma started to mourn for his children because of how they got destroyed. Monosuke and his siblings were rebuilt by Monokuma after Kokichi Oma's Class Trial and began to be active once again to assist his father for the Mutual Killing Game.

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

NO THATS WRONG KUBS 3

Despite that he and his siblings were all brought back however, Monokuma 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. During the Class Trial he gets angry, according to Monotaro and Monophanie he has awakened his "true self". He was overall the third one to explode from the Monokuma Kubs during the Final Class Trial.

Bonus Mode

In the bonus mode, he and his siblings are headmasters of a Hope's Peak Academy like school.

Appearance

Monosuke Sprite (5)
NDRV3 Art Gallery Monokuma and Kubs
Monosuke's appearance is similar to that of his father, Monokuma, but the part that is black on Monokuma consists of yellowish brown and dark brown stripes. Likewise, his left eye is white, contrasting Monokuma's. Unlike most Monokumas, Monosuke's whole left eye occasionally glows white light instead of having small red glow.

He has bright pink cheeks and eyelashes on his right eye.He dons a pair of round black glasses, an abacus, and a yellow pacifier.

Personality

Monosuke is a child-like robot. He is the most cool-headed in the group and appears to be the most intelligent as well. However, he is neither mature nor docile, and he has a horrible mouth similar to Monokid.

He acts like the straight man of a double act stand-up comedy. He often displays a positive attitude even in the middle of an argument between members. He tends to be the one correcting his siblings whenever they say something nonsensical.

Being a Monokuma, he enjoys killing and gore, though he acts more calm about it than overly excited Monokid.

Relationships

Family:

Monokuma

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

Considering himself the Headmaster, Monokuma seems annoyed if his children try to steal the show.

Monokuma Kubs

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