Monaka (モナカ) is an extraterrestrial warrior from the 7th Universe, and is one of the five members of 7th Universe Team that represents the Seventh Universe in 6th Universe and 7th Universe Hakaishin Selection Martial Arts Competition.
Monaka is a delivery man from the planet Wagashi, who travels through galaxies. He was in reality an amateur fighter, but Beerus lied that Monaka was the strongest he had ever fought (excluding Whis). He was initially chosen to be the final fighter to represent the seventh universe, and to motivate Goku and the others to do better.
Monaka is a short extraterrestrial with red skin, a bulbous round head, and pointed ears. He has a slim build that belies his immense power, and his most distinguishing feature is his abnormally large nipples, from which his moniker is derived. He wears a green leotard and purple shoes, similar in design to Nameccian footwear.
When working as a delivery man, Monaka wears a blue and white cap with a ringed planet logo on it. He also wears a yellow uniform with rolled up pant legs and blue boots.
While the full extent of his abilities remain to be seen, Monaka is referred to by both Beerus and Whis to be the strongest the Hakaishin has faced, being able to give the likes of Beerus trouble in combat. Beerus seems confident enough in Monaka's abilties to put him at the last of 7th Universe Team in order of participation for the tournament. This was later revealed to be a falsehood; in order to motivate Gokū and Vegeta in the tournament, Beerus recruited Monaka, who is in fact a complete amateur.
