They also appear in the 3rd Wily Tower Stage in Mega Man: The Wily Wars.

Monkikki (モンキッキ Monkikki) is a modified Monking from Mega Man V that jumps and throws banana-shaped projectiles. It appears in the stages of Mars and Uranus.

Monkikki's name is a play of "monkey" and "ukikki" ("eek", the sound a monkey makes).

Monking A

Monking A is a modified Monking that helps the Atetemino Proto in Mega Man & Bass. It attacks by throwing balls from the top of the room and mocks the player, though it can be tricked into throwing these balls at the holographic copies created by the Copy Vision.

Other Media

Monking had brief appearances in the manga Mega Man Megamix and the cartoon Captain N: The Game Master.

Returning Monking appears in Mega Man #44 informing Hard Man that Mega Man arrived in his base. Hard Man later thanks the robot and it returns to patrolling the area.
