Mon Colle Knights, known as Six Gates Far Away Mon Colle Knight (Japanese: 六門天外モンコレナイト, Hepburn: Rokumon Tengai Mon Kore Naito) in Japan, is an anime and manga series. The original concept was made by Hitoshi Yasuda and Group SNE. The series is based on the Monster Collection trading card game.

The Japanese version aired on TV Tokyo, consisting of 51 episodes and one movie. The Saban-produced Mon Colle Knights aired on Fox Kids in North America from July 2001 to September 2002, consisting of 45 episodes. In 2006 it aired on Jetix on Sundays at 10:00 p.m. The manga, written by Satoru Akahori and Katsumi Hasegawa and drawn by Hideaki Nishikawa, is published in English in Singapore by Chuang Yi.

Plot[edit]

The series features Ooya Mondo and his girlfriend Hiiragi Rokuna, whose father Professor Hiiragi Ichiroubei invented a way to travel to Mon World (Roku Mon Sekai: the Six Gate World), where all sorts of magical creatures live. Together, they try to find six monster items which, when combined, could connect the Six Gate World with planet Earth for the better of both worlds. Rokuna and Mondo form the Mon Colle Knights and find out that when chanting a phrase they can merge into monsters and control them into battle as well as aid with spells. Almost every episode, they battle Professor Hiiragi's rival Prince Eccentro (Count Collection in the Japanese version) and his two girl underlings Goruko and Bachi who are after the same thing as the Mon Colle Knights, except that they intend to use the items to dominate both worlds.

Main characters[edit]

Mon Colle Knights[edit]

  • Ooya Mondo (大矢 門斗, Ōya Mondo)
Voiced by: Tomo Saeki (Japanese); Derek Stephen Prince (English)
One of the main protagonists of the series. Mondo is an adventurous young boy who seeks to gather the Mon items to bring together his world and Mon world for peace and friendship. Even though he has an outgoing and determined nature, Mondo has a little problem: he always flirts with pretty girls (Beginner, Kahimi, and Lailai are the most notable). Note that the first Kanji in Mondo's name; "Mon (, Mon)," is the same that is used in the Mon Colle Knights title, Roku Mon Tengai Mon Colle Knight (天外モンコレナイト, Roku Mon Tengai Mon Kore Naito). He has devices which he uses for his peace sign attack.
  • Hiiragi Rokuna (柊 六奈, Hiiragi Rokuna)
Voiced by: Yui Horie (Japanese); Brianne Siddall (English)
One of the main protagonists of the series. Rokuna is Mondo's genius friend, whose intentions match Mondo's. She has a special telepathic ability to communicate with monsters. Now her boyfriend Mondo likes drooling over her but gets jealous if Mondo flirts with other girls causing Rokuna to attack him. The first Kanji in Rockna's name; "Roku (, Roku)," is the same that is used in the Mon Colle Knights title, Roku Mon Tengai Mon Kore Naito (門天外モンコレナイト, ''Roku Mon Tengai Mon Kore Naito). She has a baton like devices which she uses for her string or ribbon attack.
  • Professor Hiiragi Ichiroubei (柊 一郎兵衛, Hiiragi Ichirōbei)
Voiced by: Shigeru Chiba (Japanese); Jamieson Price (English)
Rokuna's father and a rather eccentric sort of mad scientist. He discovered Mon World and wants the human world to know about it so he can win lots of awards.
  • Jāne (ジャーネ, Jāne) / Lovestar
Voiced by: Yuko Mizutani (Japanese); Wendee Lee (English)
Lovestar is a Zeechi that Rokuna adopted. A pale pink hamster-like monster with a red star marked on her back. In the Japanese version, his species is called "Lovestar" because the sounds the creatures make resemble the word "love-love" and the pattern on their backs make a star. Also in the Japanese version, Lovestar is called "Jāne," because, when Rokuna was trying to say goodbye ("Jā ne") to him, Lovestar thought she was calling him by name.
  • Punchpunch (パンチパンチ, Panchipanchi)
Voiced by: Maria Yamamoto
A tiny monkey monster who punches.
  • Cluckputer
Professor Hiiragi's chicken-based computer. It usually serves as a computer for Professor Hiiragi and goes off whenever a monster is near.

Collection team[edit]

  • Count Ludwig Presto Von Meinstein Collection (ルードヴィヒ・ブレスト・フォン・マインシュタイン・コレクション, Rūdovihi Buresuto Fon Mainshutain Korekushon) / Prince Ludwig Von Monsterstein Eccentro
Voiced by: Kazuhiko Inoue (Japanese); Joe Ochman (English)
One of the principal antagonists of the series. Prince Eccentro a young effeminate aristocrat from Europe who wants to take over Mon World. He was born in 1974 and he was trained by Tanaka when his father wanted him to be a bad guy. He is not very threatening due to his eccentric behavior and hysterical persona at times. However, he is the inventor of the hypnotic Skeitso Beam (whether on his Flying Lion aircraft or Teddyarenaut) which he uses to bend monsters to his will. Because of that, he tends to have his evil moments, though he really isn't as evil as he brags himself to be. Everytime Prince Eccentro fails, Tanaka would punish him with back-breaking exercises and/or harsh training that is related to the episode's content. His dream is apparently to become a world famous belly dancer.
  • Teddyarenaut
A bear-like computer created by Eccentro. He serves as the counterpart to the Cluckputer and has a built-in Skeitso Beam. In one episode, he temporarily developed an A.I. because Savant Bear think he is their king.
  • Bachi (バッチィ, Bachii) / Batch
Voiced by: Kyoko Hikami (Japanese); Wendee Lee (English)
Eccentro's tomboyish lackey. She unfortunately gets punished by Tanaka as well except in two episodes. Batch and Eccentro argue a lot, but she always obeys him.
  • Guruko (グーコ, Gūko) / Gluko
Voiced by: Yuka Imai (Japanese); Dina Sherman (English)
Eccentro's big-breasted, yet air-headed and friendly underling. She is always spared by Tanaka when it's time for punishment and has an amount of luck. Goruko never seems to get hurt while the rest of her team and the Mon Colle Knights usually does. An English ongoing joke in the series is that during Eccentro's launch sequence in each episode, she asks a very long and logic based question which ends with Eccentro and Batch becoming bored and saying "Never mind, Goruko." In the Japanese version, Gluko speaks in a very polite and respectful dialect whether she's talking to her teammates or her enemies. Goruko also carries around a book detailing about Mon World and his creatures. In a later episode, Gluko ends up adopting a Forest Imp named Impy.
  • Takenaka Chuzaemon (竹中 忠左衛門, Takenaka Chūzaemon) / Tanaka
Voiced by: Yuji Ueda (Japanese); Michael Sorich (English)
A midget old man who serves as Eccentro's mentor under the orders of Eccentro's father. He usually punishes Eccentro for his screw ups (and/or lack of manly attitude) with back-breaking exercises and/or harsh training related to the episode's content. Tanaka tends to pop up anywhere.
  • Repuri (レプリちゃん, Repuri-chan) / Impy
Voiced by: Marina Yamamoto (Japanese); R. Martin Klein (English)
A cheerful young Forest Imp (Leprechaun in the Japanese version) who is Goruko's pet. Goruko first found him in the forest near where Vipress was imprisoned. Impy doesn't talk very much -- he usually only utters short, inquisitive questions (such as "What this?"), or repeats cheerfully what Goruko says. He has psychic powers that allow him to telekinetically move things around, which comes in handy for some of Eccentro's schemes. Impy also has a habit of fiddling with buttons on the Flying Lion aircraft and more often than not causing it to explode and send him and his allies blasting off. Despite his apparent carefree and dimwitted personality, Impy does care a lot for Goruko.

Supporting cast[edit]

  • Gokumare Namiko (極稀 並子, Gokumare Namiko) / Naomi Loon
Voiced by: Yuko Mizutani (Japanese); Wendee Lee (English)
Mondo and Rokuna's teacher, a rather nice lady who has a short temper and terrible luck with love. For some reason, there is a monster card featuring her that is in Prince Eccentro's possession. She is a skilled fighter as seen in some episodes.
  • Beginner (ビギナーちゃん, Bigina-chan)
Voiced by: Mika Kanai (Japanese); Philece Sampler (English)
A cute but accident-prone girl with a large appetite who is learning to become a summoner. While powerful, her aim is terrible, so she tends to hurt her allies by accident. As a running gag, she has a habit of summoning a giant meteor that always ends destroying something. She is a friend of Mondo and Rokuna. Her grandfather, Expert, runs the summoning school she attends. In the Japanese version, Beginner refers to Mondo and Rokuna collectively as "Roku-Mon-chan," much to their annoyance.
  • Lailai (ライライ, Rairai)
Voiced by: Tomoko Ishimura (Japanese); Melissa Fahn (English)
A young girl which the Mon Colle Knights often encounter at random, while she travels the world carrying impossible amounts of little monsters in her coat. She gave Lovestar to Rokuna.
  • Songstress of the Flower Garden (花園の歌姫, Hanazono no Utahime) / Kahimi
Voiced by: Yumi Kakazu (Japanese); Tifanie Christun (English)
An elf maiden with very long hair, whose beauty incites Rokuna's jealousy whenever Mondo compliments Kahimi (though Rokuna holds nothing against Kahimi herself). She becomes a good friend and ally of the Mon Colle Knights, especially with her ability to make plants grow and control over the winds of Mon World.
  • Luke (ルーク, Rūku)
Voiced by: Yumiko Kobayashi (Japanese); Lex Lang (English)
A friend of Beginner's who goes to the same summoning school as her. Luke has a poorly-disguised crush on Beginner and seems to like Rokuna. Luke is a summoning prodigy and considers Mondo his biggest rival as a monster summoner and for Beginner's heart. Around Beginner, Luke becomes so nervous he can summon only purple sheep, not to be confused with his own sheep friend, Lambda. Beginner, for her part, is oblivious to Luke's crush on her. Luke acts rather stingy and aloof towards strangers and he tends to be a bit of a crybaby when things don't go his way -- such as when someone, usually Mondo, interacts with Beginner or Lambda -- but he shows himself to quite brave in the face of danger, and his summoning abilities make him handy to have around. Prince Eccentro once lied to Luke telling him that Mondo is not a very good person causing Luke to summon Basilosaurus to attack Mondo with. Luke learned the truth when Prince Eccentro took over Basilosaurus.
  • Lambda (ランダ, Randa)
A purple sheep who is a friend of Luke's.
  • Zaha (ザッハ, Zahha) / Gabriolis
Voiced by: Shin-ichiro Miki (Japanese); Daran Norris (English)
A former Light Angel. During a great war between good and evil, he was wounded and left behind by his friend Lark. He felt betrayed and abandoned and embraced the darkness that Redda offered him transforming him into a Dark Angel. He plagued the Mon Colle Knights on different occasions involving attacking Doppelganger and casting a spell on 3 of Mondo's cards (consisting of Forester the Forest Giant, Flying Stego, and Scorch the Fire Monster) until Spectra appeared and reversed the spell. When he was weakened by Vipress's attack during his fight with Mondo and Water Dragon after Redda took control of the monsters, it was later revealed by Spectra and the Angel of all Oceans that Lark, in fact, took his place in battle and died (in the English dub, he went to divert an approaching enemy flock and wasn't seen again) after which Gabriolis realized his error and reverted to good, though maintaining his dark appearance. He also helped Mondo and Rockna defeat Dread Dragon and destroyed Redda in the final episode. Zaha's name is derived from Zahariel, which means "Brightness of God". Zahariel was the angel who would help people resist temptation. This is both ironic and fitting to his character, as the first failed temptation, then become someone who temps others, then someone who helps others resist temptation, and finally someone able to resist it himself too. The English dubbed name is derived from Gabriel, one of the archangels who typically serves as a messenger to humans from God.
  • Rutto (ルット) / Lucca
He is a small demonic creature who is Gabriolis' friend and partner. On one occasion, he had possession of an item that had to be won over in a Mon World Baseball tournament.
  • Redda (レダ, Reda)
Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Japanese); Tom Wyner (English)
One of the principal antagonists of the series. Redda is a fallen angel like Gabriolis, who wants to use the six items to summon Oroboros. He is powerful, but not the strongest. Redda would prefer to avoid battle when not having a good advantage. In the dub, he wants to create a world of nothingness. In the original, he wants to create a formless world where all souls are the same and neither good nor evil will exist. Redda was the one who enabled Gabriolis to embrace the darkness after he was seemingly abandoned. In the final battle, he is killed by Gabriolis.
  • N-Nouncer
A man with a circle that has the letter N on it. He serves as the announcer of any tournaments in Mon World.
  • Shiru (シル) / Spectra the Angel
Voiced by: Asako Dodo (Japanese); Debbie Rothstein (English)
Lark's sister and Zaha's fiance in the Japanese version (she is Gabriolis' sister in the English dub) who sports a long gold dress and is always barefoot. Spectra is a Light Angel who comes to Gabriolis in his darkest hour to show him what really happened in the past so he may find redemption. She reappeared when Redda was chasing after her near the Fire Angel's castle and was rescued by the Mon Colle Knights.
  • Forest Angel / Earth Angel
Mon World's guardian angel of the Earth Realm who sports five pairs of wings. She first appeared to help the Mon Colle Knights put the Four-Armed Giant back to sleep by summoning the Emerald Dragon. It was the Forest Angel who told the Mon Colle Knights of the Guardian Angels' roles.
  • Flame Angel / Fire Angel
Voiced by: Melodee Spevack
The guardian angel of the Fire Realm and the Guardian of the Solar Scepter (one of the Mon items).
  • Angel of all Oceans / Water Angel
Voiced by: Wendee Lee
The guardian angel of the Water Realm and Guardian of the Arialla Pearl (one of the Mon items) who sports long purple hair, three wings, wears a strange dress, and is always barefoot. The Angel of all Oceans and Spectra revealed to Gabriolis what really happened the day when he was "abandoned."
  • Cloud Angel
Mon World's guardian angel of the Wind Realm who sports two pairs of wings.
