Monoeyes (モノアイ Monoai) are among Medusa's basic flying soldiers that often attack in groups. They are some of the most recognizable enemies in the series, partly due to their abundance in Kid Icarus: Uprising. Monoeyes are physically similar to Miks, except that they have a large eye instead of a mouth. They first appear in Chapter 1 of Kid Icarus: Uprising and are the first enemies to appear.

Characteristics

Monoeyes as seen in the Original Kid Icarus.

The Monoeye is one of three enemies based on an exaggerated facial feature, the others being Mik and Specknose. As its name implies, this creature is well-known for its massive single eye that gives it almost telescopic vision. This trait allows a Monoeye to find its targets very easily from the sky, giving it the opportunity to attack unexpectedly and in full force with many others of its kind. This monster also has numerous tentacles that help it to fly through the air quickly and efficiently. Like many Underworld enemies, the Monoeye can shoot plasma energy from its eye as a projectile attack. When using this ability, its normally blue or red pupil will glow bright orange.

It appears that the Monoeye possess some form of telekinetic powers, as evident by Thanatos Rising. In the anime, they are seen maneuvering large horse-like siege equipment without actually having any physical contact with the gears or controls. A purple glow that surrounds their eye also suggests this telekinetic ability.

Appearances

Kid Icarus

"A one-eyed ghostly plasma. It flies through the air past Pit in groups. If one of them touches Pit, then Pit becomes paralyzed and some of his strength is absorbed."

Monoeyes are large eyeball-shaped creatures with short tentacles who fly in formations of four and are only found in the Underworld. They are weak aerial monsters with a minimum threat level, but can quickly become pests during difficult jumps. They don't have the ability to cause paralysis and can't absorb Pit's health to add to their own.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

Monoeyes return as common enemies during Pit's adventure, and will appear in most of the chapters of the story. They were among the very first monsters revealed in the original trailer, and are now capable of launching projectile attacks like their skeletal counterparts.

Two Monoeyes are required to form a Monomiknose, along with a Mik and Specknose.

Monoeyes makes an appearance in the exclusive 3DS feature called Smash Run. They are some of the enemies that can be defeated to gain power-ups before a match begins.


Trivia

  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, there appears a similar enemy, which are called Feyesh, looking like an orange fish with one big eye and tentacles. Coincidentally, it first appears in the Sea of Clouds level, which is located near and can be considered part of the World of Trophies' Skyworld area, which is based on the Kid Icarus world of the same name and is where players first take control of Pit. However, story-wise, Pit does not actually appear in this particular level.
