Appearance

Monotaro's appearance is similar to that of his father, Monokuma, but the part that is black on Monokuma is red on him. Likewise, his eye is black, contrasting Monokuma's and he has bright pink cheeks.

He also possesses a long gray scarf with a silver star pinned to it and a yellow pacifier.

Personality

Monotaro is the leader-esque figure of the Monokuma Kubs, a group of child-like robots. Unlike his siblings, he keeps control of their conversations, though he gets sidetracked a lot.

Despite being a leader, he is the most clumsy of the siblings, giving him a childlike charm.[1]

Compared to Monokid and Monosuke, Monotaro is relatively mild-mannered and less openly hostile towards the students. He also seems considerate of Monofunny and overall appears to care about his siblings despite their constant fighting. Nevertheless, he is evil, just like all the siblings.

Kaede stops her companions from protecting her, accepting guilt and demanding that all hope to leave the Academy and get accustomed to life without her, then begins her execution being carried by a chain.

During her execution, Monotaro along with the other Monokuma Kubs cooperate in the execution of Kaede next to his father Monokuma. These pulled the rope that had Kaede, until finally they hanged it. When the lid of the piano with sharp prongs was about to close, Monodam has a fit of desperation and pushes Monokid to his death, being crushed by the trap of Kaede, filling with blood and leaving only his damaged head, which is disturbingly and fall in front of the remaining students.

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