|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #285|
Monga (モンガ, Monga) was a shinobi of Iwagakure.
Monga had a "tough guy" attitude. He was rather calm in stressful situations. He cared deeply for his comrades and was also very courageous and confident in his abilities, as shown when he opted to face Gari alone, and when he earlier bragged that no one would lay a finger on his comrades as long as he was present.
Monga was very large in stature: both tall and extremely muscular. He had dark hair, a wide nose and grey purple markings beneath his eyes. He wore the standard Iwagakure outfit, consisting of red clothing with a left sleeve and lapel. He wore his forehead protector in a bandanna style.
Monga demonstrated great capability as a shinobi. He proved skilled enough to take down Gari in only a few seconds, showing great strategic abilities, cleverly using Earth Release in conjunction with a number of explosive tags. In the same encounter he also showed impressive strength, capable of shattering rock with a single punch.
Monga was skilled in the field of Earth Release techniques. He has shown capable of using Earth Release: Earth-Style Wall for defences as well as trapping an opponent. For offence he can use Earth Release: Earth and Stone Bamboo Shoot, creating spikes to assault his opponent.
Shinobi World War Arc
As the reincarnated shinobi reappear on the battlefield, most of the Third Division is scattered into small squads. Monga leads a squad consisting of Maki and Ruka that is assigned to protect the Medical, Sealing and Intel squad members. Gari confronts the squad who Monga thought he would never face in battle. Disappointed in Gari's attitude of being okay with being controlled, Monga battles his former comrade and blows him to bits with rocks by pushing a mud wall placed with explosive tags. Monga instructed Maki to seal Gari, but he is caught in a sneak attack by Pakura, and ultimately mummified.
