Monmo (モンモ Monmo) is an Exceed who formerly resided in the Kingdom of Extalia but now resides in Earth Land with the rest of his race.[1]


Monmo is a young Exceed with brown fur and a cream-colored face. He has black eyes, pointed ears, and a bushy brown-tipped tail. He has a triangle-shaped brown nose, rectangular eyebrows and two whiskers sprouting out of each cheek. He usually wears a teal-colored long-sleeved shirt with white edges, a red handkerchief tied around his neck, blue pants and black shoes.


Monmo is a fun-loving kid who loves to collect rare sticks. He can be usually seen playing with Belletokia and Clap, the other two members of the Kid Adventure Squad, a club he founded.[1] Like all other Exceeds, Monmo was once confident about the power of the Exceeds and believed that their queen would be able to win a war against the humans but later learns humility after learning the truth from the Elders.


Edolas arc

Monmo playing with Belletokia and Clap

Monmo lives in Extalia and can be usually seen playing with Belletokia and Clap.[2] One day, Extalia is visited by Wendy Marvell and Fallen Exceed, Carla, drawing the attention of all the Exceeds, including Clap, Monmo and Belletokia. The two inform the Exceeds about the Kingdom's plan to destroy them. Monmo, like the rest of the Exceeds, merely laughs at the two and begins to throw rocks at them.[3]

Clap and Monmo crying

As the Lacrima island nears Extalia, Queen Shagotte arrives and tells the truth to the Exceeds, leaving Monmo and the others dumbfounded. Like the rest, Monmo begins to cry after realizing that they are not being protected by the power of the God. He continues to cry as he watches Shagotte ask Carla to kill her as punishment. However, Carla refuses to kill the queen and encourages the Exceeds to fight for their home; before flying off to stop the Lacrima island and is followed by the other Exceeds, Monmo included. With their combined efforts, they are able to give Mystogan enough time to send the giant Lacrima back to Earth Land.[4]

Monmo being turned to Lacrima

Having successfully saved their home, the Exceeds begin to celebrate. However, their celebration is cut short when Erza Knightwalker and her army arrive and shoot Panther Lily.[5] Knightwalker's actions cause the Exceed to fly away, in fear that they will be turned into Lacrima similar to Nichiya and his guards. However, Clap and Monmo fail to escape the guards and are converted into Lacrima.[6]

Monmo and the Exceeds apologizing

After Faust's defeat and Mystogan's actions, all the Exceed trapped in Lacrima revert to their original forms and are sucked up and transported to Earth Land by the Reverse Anima, along with all the magical creatures of Edolas.[7] Monmo and the rest of the Exceeds arrive moments before Team Natsu do, and informs them that everyone in Magnolia is fine. They later apologize for their actions and after being forgiven, fly off to find the other Exceeds that were sent to Earth Land by the queen's evacuation plan.[8]
