The Monkey King, also called This Big Monkey by Zsasha, is a character that only appears in Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii).

TowerIcon.png Appearance[edit]

The Monkey King is a large monkey, about 10 times the size of a Raposa. He is very lanky and is covered in thick brown fur. He has what mimics a goatee made of darker brown hair. He has a purple crown with a banana shaped tassle, and what seems to be a set of rings that spell out "REX" on his left hand. His right hand rests on a golden staff.

Book Icon.png Story[edit]

Before the events of Drawn to Life, the Monkey King signed a treaty with Mayor, promoting peace between their two villages. After Mayor's death but before Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii), the Monkey King had kidnapped Zsasha. The Monkey King is first seen some time later, after receiving three fruit offerings, a Lemon, a Banana, and a Pineapple. When Jowee and the Hero enter the Throne Room, they notice Zsasha was with the Monkey King, proving his innocence in the robberies around Rapoville.

The Monkey King argues that he was protecting Zsasha from the Bad Inkies that were invading the Throne Room, and he wouldn't let him leave until they were gone. With that, the Hero climbs up the Throne Room, taking out the Shadow Walkers as he climbed. When they get to the top, the Monkey King explains that the Walkers had invaded for the Crystal Mask, and so the Monkey King gives it to the Hero. He also releases Zsasha to the Hero, and invites them to come back anytime.

  • Despite the Raposa and the Monkeys having a pact of some kind, the Hero can still defeat Monkeys in Jangala Falls and Treetop Village without consequence.
    • The Monkey King never brings this up, and seems to have no problem with the Hero or the Raposa after this.
    • This may mean that the pact between Rapoville and Jangala may not be related to peace.
  • It is unknown why the Monkey King wears rings spelling out "REX".
    • Rex is the Latin word for "King", so this may just be a reference to his title.
  • The Monkey King is listed as an enemy in the games files.
    • This may indicate that he was supposed to be Jangala's boss at one point.
      • This was confirmed in multiple Game Design Documents shared by Ken Capelli.
  • During production of the game, the Monkey King was originally called the Tree King.
  • As seen in a picture provided by Jason Weesner, the Monkey King's name have been "Lawrence" during development.[1]
