Super Monkey Fan Club is the fourth upgrade of Path 2 for the Dart Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It attacks about ~33% faster than Very Quick Shots. For the ability, there is an initial 20-second period before the it is usable, alongside a 50 seconds cooldown once activated. The ability converts the club leader and up to the closest 9 other Dart Monkeys into Super Monkeys for 15 seconds, as well as increasing their attack range to a flat amount. Crossbow Monkeys, Spike-o-pults and the "Plasma Monkey Fan Club" cannot be transformed by this ability.
Super Monkey Fan Club is a useful way of providing extra DPS whenever necessary. Even a small army of transformed Dart Monkeys can act as an equivalent to a number of base Super Monkeys with extra pierce and the potential for built-in camo detection. On CHIMPS, Super Monkey Fan Club is generally the stepping stone to Plasma Monkey Fan Club, and is used during the mid-game in conjunction with other strong mid-game towers while saving up for said upgrade.
The transformed Monkeys are affected by Tier 1 and Tier 2 upgrades, making a considerable difference in DPS compared to transforming 0-0-0 Dart Monkeys.
Upgrading Dart Monkeys to Long Range Darts does not affect the range of the transformed Dart Monkeys compared to not getting it, Enhanced Eyesight gives +8 range and camo detection however.
It is wise to add a Primary Mentoring or Expertise nearby for higher uptime for Super Monkey Fan Club abilities, as well as decrease costs of Dart Monkeys that would be in range of both the Village and the Super Monkey Fan Club leader itself.
Fixing out the interaction with Total Transformation. While initially not patched by Ninja Kiwi during earlier releases because of both abilities' long cooldowns, the interaction was removed after they said the addition of Co-Op Mode has made the combo too overpowered.
Added "Regular attack speed also increased." to the description.

Other than x-4-x Dart Monkeys, Dart Monkeys transformed into Super Monkeys look exactly like base Super Monkeys but smaller. In BTD5, however, the transformed Dart Monkeys have the same size as base Super Monkeys.
The description of SMFC states that all Dart Monkeys are male.
