Monols resemble large, flat, rectangular walls made of black stone. Strangely, they can morph their surface to resemble a face, or use it as a weapon by creating spikes or tendrils. Monols excel in defense but have very poor speed because they move by gliding slowly over the earth, using their powers over gravity and electromagnetism.

It is said that a Monol is actually a Magic whose true form is hidden, and this mystery carries over in their genetics; they often create evil or dark monsters when combined. In Monster Rancher EVO, a very powerful Monol named King Monolithe is one of the level bosses that the characters must face to progress the story. He can split himself into smaller fragments, and has a large, scary face.


The name Monol is short for Monolith, based on the characters from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.
