The Monking is a very difficult boss added by Better Dungeons mod, with 1500 HP (750 hearts).


He is a 3-block tall monkey with long arms. His melee attack alone does not deal much damage, but there is a small explosion on impact that can throw the player approximately 20 blocks in the air. Thus, most of the damage that comes from fighting the Monking is due to fall damage. 


Feather Falling or Cloud Boots (highly enchanted for protection) are recommended.


Upon death, he drops


  • He can be spawned with his own "spawn egg," using item 7607:501.
  • He occasionally restores himself by 1 Health
  • It looks like he doesn't spawn naturally, however, he might spawn randomly in Jungle like King Slime in plains.
