~ Bloons TD 6 Description


The Super Monkey is a tower that has appeared in all of the Bloons TD games, Bloons 2, Bloons Super Monkey, and Bloons Super Monkey 2. It shoots projectiles very quickly, making it powerful but also quite an expensive tower to invest in. It is somewhat related to the Dart Monkey, as both throw darts, only at hypersonic speed. The cost of the Super Monkey is $4000 in the original, and the cost varies depending on the difficulty level in all subsequent games. Despite being the most powerful tower, the Super Monkey cannot pop Lead Bloons or detect Camo Bloons without any aid from upgrades, towers, and/or Speciality Buildings. However, in Bloons TD 6, the new Ultravision upgrade allows the Super Monkey to hit Camo Bloons.

Game appearances[]

Bloons series[]

Bloons 2[]

Laser ownage with Super Monkey!

The Super Monkey makes a cameo appearance, using lasers that can destroy anything, including metal blocks. Use it if you can't complete a certain level. Super Monkeys are limited, so they are best only used when the player thinks the level is very difficult. In addition, you can use a free super monkey on any level you have completed.

Bloons Super Monkey series[]

Bloons Super Monkey[]

Super Monkey from BSM

The Super Monkey flies over five different levels (plain, jungle, ice, volcano, space) popping bloons while upgrading its abilities. Upon completing the game, the Super Monkey flies up into space with fireworks going on and a crowd cheering is heard. If you lose, it shows an animation of a ripped cape hanging from a tree with a purple bloon and sheep in the background.

Bloons Super Monkey 2[]

It acts the same as the original Bloons Super Monkey, it flies in 4 different zones (Monkey Lane, Bloon Dunes, Deep Bloon Sea, and Mount Magma), popping bloons, collecting Power Blops, and upgrading its abilities.

Bloons TD 3[]

In Bloons TD 3, the Super Monkey not only has the upgrades from Bloons TD 1 and Bloons TD 2, Epic Range, and Laser Vision but also has 2 additional upgrades, Plasma Vision and Super Range. Plasma Vision enables the Super Monkey to shoot balls of plasma; plasma shoots 1.5X as fast with +1 pierce and can pop any type of bloon. The other upgrade, Super Range further increases the Super Monkey's range similarly to the Epic Range upgrade. Super Monkey has 1 pierce and attacks every 0.075 seconds. Its damage is of the sharp type, meaning it does not pop Lead and Frozen Bloons.

Bloons TD 6[]

The Super Monkey in Bloons TD 6 has a similar appearance to the Super Monkey in Bloons Super Monkey 2 Mobile. The "B" logo on its chest has been replaced with a dart symbol instead. It is one of the few towers where its upgrade paths from BTD5 carried over untouched to BTD6. In fact, not much has changed about the Super Monkey; it's still a high popping power tower with a high price.

Each path of the Super Monkey has the tower follow a different evolution from third-tier upgrades beyond. The first path is a spiritual one, turning the Super Monkey into an Avatar of the Sun God. The second path transforms the Super Monkey through experimental cybernetics and weaponry. The new third path makes the Super Monkey a traditional anti-hero inspired by the Dark Knight iteration of Batman, contrasting with the original Super Monkey's Superman.

The Super Monkey is categorized as a Magic-class tower.

Differences between BTD5 Flash and BTD5 Mobile[]

  • Buff Jungle Drums can increase the attack speed of the Super Monkey.
  • Buff Laser Blasts can destroy MOAB-Class Bloons faster than one upgraded to Plasma Blasts because the lasers register as two hits instead of one.
  • Buff Sunbeams from the Temple of the Monkey God have unlimited pierce regardless of sacrifices.
  • Buff A warning message will now always pop up whenever the player upgrades a Sun God to a Temple of the Monkey God (this helps reduce the number of unwanted Temples, allows the player to consider if they want to build a temple in the first place, and lowers the chance of a player accidentally sacrificing towers upon purchase).
  • Buff Footprint size will no longer increase upon being upgraded from Sun Gods to Temples of the Monkey God. Instead, the footprint remains the same as a normal Super Monkey footprint (like all its other upgrades).

Update History (Bloons TD Battles Mobile)[]

Outside of club arenas such as Mega Boosts and Bananza Mode, The Super Monkey is rarely used because it is too expensive and ineffective as an early-game tower (a 0/0 Super Monkey can't handle grouped Blue Bloons), due to poor lower-level upgrades and a lack of camo detection. Over the years, it has been given various buffs, the most significant of which is Version 4.6, decreasing the cost of the base tower and both of its range upgrades.

The only popular loadouts that utilize the Super Monkey is Ninja-Farm-Super (in Bananza), and Wizard-Farm-Super (also in Bananza).

3.1
  • Buff Laser Blasts price decreased ($3,500 → $3,000).

20.0
We were finally able to properly implement a popular suggestion for the Robo Monkey, and will be keeping an eye on it's performance more closely in this update. In addition to this, Dark Knight's reliance on Alchemist/Obyn to reach a reasonable pierce value made it too difficult to enjoy teleporting around using Dark Knight's new ability so we tried to cut out that dependency with a sizable pierce increase.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff x-3-x Robo Monkey is now able to independently set its arms to different target priorities instead of using the alternating First-Last, Close-Strong priorities.
  • Buff x-x-3 Dark Knight pierce increased from 3 to 5 (xx4+ Dark Champion does not inherit this buff).
22.0
The projectile count of the current multitudes of mini avatars spawned by boosted temples in freeplay contributes to performance decay, so we've capped the spawn rate of these mini avatars. Additionally middle path has received some basic buffs with Robo-Monkey feeling unbalanced for the high price and difficult crosspathing, and Tech Terror not keeping up with other towers that perform a similar role.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Nerf Sun Temple, True Sun God, and Avatar of the Vengeful Monkey mini avatar spawn rate is no longer increased by attack rate buffs.
  • Buff Robo Monkey price reduced from 9,000 to 7,000.
  • Buff Tech Terror ability cooldown reduced from 60s to 45s. Also affects The Anti-Bloon.
24.0
While not considered an issue on the same level for Races, the Bloon Annihilation ability has preemptively had pierce reduced under the same reasoning as Ground Zero and Maelstrom, but by amounts that still likely won't be noticeable even under most Race conditions - but we're keeping an eye on it. Additionally the price of this upgrade has been reduced by a fair amount.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Tech Terror price reduced from $22,000 → $19,000.
  • Nerf Tech Terror ability pierce reduced from infinite to 2,000.
  • Nerf The Anti-Bloon ability pierce reduced from infinite to 10,000.
25.0
As Super Monkey's range crosspath is too often considered unnecessary for Sun Avatar & Dark Knight we have chosen to move some of Robo Monkey's pierce down into a lower tier again
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Super Range now also increases Super Monkey pierce by +1. Also affects Epic Range. Robo Monkey pierce remains at 6.

Trivia[]

  • The Super Monkey is based on Superman, with its uniform, cape, and Laser Vision.
    • The Dark Knight upgrade in BTD6 is probably a reference to Batman, with its uniform and blades it throws. Also, the Tier 5 Legend of the Night upgrade is similar to Batman Beyond.
    • The 2nd path Robo Monkey and subsequent upgrades are a reference to the Terminator series.
    • The Robo Monkey upgrade could also be referencing the Robocop franchise.
  • In BTD5, tier 3 and 4 of Path 1 upgrades are ancient-themed, while the Path 2 upgrades are future-themed, which is a pattern repeated with the Boomerang Thrower and loosely with the Banana Farm and Village, but reversed with the Buccaneer.
  • The Super Monkey is the only tower in BTD 1 with only 1 upgrade.
  • In BTD5, Epic Range gives the Super Monkey a green cape, and Plasma Blasts gives it a purple cape.
  • There is a game based on the Super Monkey called Bloons Super Monkey; the Super Monkey harnesses the powers of the Boomerang Thrower, Missile Launcher, and MOAB Mauler. It has its own sequel named Bloons Super Monkey 2 and its mobile version, with also harnessing the powers of the Monkey Apprentice and Ice Tower only in those sequels.
  • When Super Monkeys are upgraded with Laser Vision they still can't pop lead bloons unless you are playing in the iOS or Nintendo DSi/3DS version of Bloons TD 4.
    • The Laser Vision's description fails to mention this very useful feature, despite it still mentioning that it can pop frozen bloons. This means the Laser Vision's ability to pop leads may be a bug.
  • Dart Monkeys can use the Super Monkey Fan Club Ability to become an 0/0 (unupgraded) Super Monkey in BTD5 for a limited time. However, 0/0 SMFC dart monkeys are better than 0/0 Super Monkey because their darts have more piercing, and can be placed more densely due to the Dart Monkey's smaller footprint.
  • The Super Monkey's status of the ultimate tower is debatable, the Super Monkey cannot pop Camos unaided unless it is in the radius of a Meerkat Spy, upgraded to Temple of The Monkey God, Ultravision (BTD6), under the effect of a Monkey Buccaneer with the Crow's Nest upgrade with the Pirate Cove specialty on or an x/2 Monkey Village. Furthermore, if you place the Super Monkey in an ill spot, it is easily outstripped by Yellow Bloons and Pink Bloons (shown to the right, unless the Super Monkey is well-placed).
    • A blue or green bloon can even outspeed an Epic Range Super Monkey on some tracks like MOAB Desert.

A 1/1 Super Monkey being outsmarted by a Yellow Bloon

  • A Monkey Buccaneer with the Destroyer upgrade in BTD5 is roughly the equivalent of a Super Monkey with no upgrades but in water. It fires slightly slower, but it is cheaper, has more range, Camo detection (if upgraded to Crow's Nest), and the darts pierce through 5 bloons and there are additional grapes (if the Destroyer also has Grape Shot).
  • In BTD5, Bloon Annihilation Ability of the Technological Terror cannot destroy Camos even if the tower has Camo detection.
  • In BTD5, the 3rd upgrade on either path for the Super Monkey makes him lose his cape.
  • The "Robo-Monkey" upgrade is a reference to the 1987 film, Robo-Cop.
  • A Temple of the Monkey God with no sacrifices is weaker than a regular Sun God. This is because a Sun God shoots 3 rays every 2 frames, while a Temple shoots 1 bigger ray.
  • It is advised to get a Monkey Fort with the Super Monkey, it will allow its darts to pop two bloons instead of one, making it far more efficient.
  • The 3rd and the 4th upgrades from Path 1 suggest a superhero so amazing that he is turned into a god, but the Path 2 upgrades suggest a superhero who has succumbed to the salvaging.
  • The Super Monkey has been nerfed in Bloons TD Battles to shoot at half speed.
  • In Bloons TD 2, a glitch may happen where sometimes the Laser Vision upgrade won't pop Frozen Bloons.
  • In BTD5 iOS, when playing on Easy and the Super Monkey is influenced by Monkey Village, the Laser Vision upgrade costs $5 more if compared to the price of BTD5 online and Deluxe.
  • According to Bloons Super Monkey 2, the Super Monkey's powers are immune to water. Also, it seems to be able to either breathe underwater or hold its breath extremely long.
  • In BTD5, if the Robo-Monkey upgrade is bought before the laser or plasma upgrade, the Robo-Monkey will shoot regular darts out of both of its arms. However, these darts can pop lead bloons.
  • Super Monkey 0/4 does the same exact damage as a 2/4 on iOS but has slightly lower popping power than the Super Monkey in the original version.
  • In Bloons TD, BTD2 and BTD5 there is a pre-round comment that asks if the player has a Super Monkey already.
    • The pre-round comment gets shorter and shorter from game to game.
  • In Bloons TD 5 Mobile, a Super Monkey with Laser Vision destroys any single MOAB-Class Bloon faster than one upgraded to Plasma Blasts because the lasers register as two hits instead of one.
  • When the Super Monkey is upgraded to the Temple of the Monkey God, the face is looking down, instead of up, unlike every other tower.
  • In Bloons TD 5, the 3/2 Super Monkey is twice as money efficient as the 2/3, as shown in this document.
  • A Temple of the Monkey God can sacrifice another Temple of the Monkey God-but does not combine the powers of the sacrificed one.
  • This is the fastest tower with no upgrades to pop a MOAB layer.
  • Super Monkeys seem to have a little footprint but actually, its footprint is a bit larger. Placing another Super Monkey nearby seems to have a little gap with the first one.
  • The True Sun God (The tier after Temple of the Monkey God) in BTD6 can pop 50 Big Airship of Doom (BAD) or even more if the sacrifice is done correctly. This is been tested by a YouTuber called Aliensrock in his video named (Bloons Tower Defense 6 - 5th Tier Temple - The True Sun God). At the end of the video, he tried the Perfect True Sun God in Sandbox mode which resulted in a lot of devastation.
  • In BTD6, a single 3/0/2 Sun Avatar can beat Round 63 by itself on some tracks.
  • In BTD6, all paths for the tower have at least two upgrades that increase its range.
  • In BTD6, the "There Can Be Only One" Monkey Knowledge allows The True Sun God to become an Avatar of the Vengeful Monkey if an Anti-Bloon and Legend of the Knight (the other 5th tiers for Super Monkey) are outside of the range of the sacrifice when the Temple is upgraded. This increases the damage of the tower and sub towers of it (i.e. Spectres). However, this prevents players from using the Anti-Bloon or Legend of the Knight, as their upgrade paths will be locked.
  • The "B" logo on the Super Monkey probably stands for Bloons, although Super Monkey is not at all on the Bloons' side.
    • It could also stand for Bananas since monkeys eat bananas.
  • The Super Monkey is one of the few towers in BTD6 that have their first two upgrade paths from BTD5 not changed at all except for new Tier-Five Upgrades.
  • On BTD6, this is the only tower to have an ability on tier 3.
