Character Types and Special Effects
The characters that can be developed are one of three types: Athletic, Cerebral, or Balanced. Each has a special ability that triggers on the field (boardgame) and a specific battle command.
On the field, type-specific special abilities will trigger at random at the beginning of the turn. Athletic types have Frenzy, which allows them to advance twice as far as the number they rolled and increases their stats in battle.
Type-specific battle commands like the Cerebral type’s Ultra Magic, which inflicts 1.5 times the damage of a standard attack, can only be used once per battle.
Challenge the Tower of Despair with the characters you developed!
Characters developed in the boardgame can be used in the Tower of Despair, a battle mode in which players fend off waves of enemies. Form a party of up to four members and take on Monobeasts awaiting you in the 200-story tower.
In the Tower of Despair, characters don’t grow stronger, even after winning battles. Carefully developing characters in the boardgame mode is the key to victory!
The battles on each floor have three missions assigned to them, and clearing them will grant Monocoins as a reward. Monocoins are needed to unlock new characters, so be sure to take on as many missions as possible.
In addition, when Monobeasts are defeated, the player can earn various drops and materials. Gather materials to craft equipment and make your party even stronger.
There are many MonoMono Machines in the School Store
Spend your Monocoins and Monomicoins at the MonoMono Machines in the School Store for a chance to pull new characters and items. The three types of MonoMono Machines have different drop rates and require machine-specific coins.
You will gain a greater advantage as you obtain new characters and items, so don’t hesitate to use up your coins as they come in.
For example, the MonoMono Yachine is more likely to grant swimsuit SR cards, while the Golden MonoMono Machine only contains high-rarity cards.
Don’t worry about saving coins–keep spending them to fill out your roster and inventory!
All content such as characters, character upgrade cards, and items can be unlocked by playing the game. All characters and character upgrade cards can also be purchased through the MonoMono Machines at the School Store with real-world money.
