The Monster Association (怪人協会, Kaijin Kyōkai) is a Mysterious Beings group led by Gyoro Gyoro and Monster King Orochi. Not much is known about it, except that they are the antithesis of the Hero Association.
The Monster Association is an unknown group first introduced to Garou by two members of the said organization. They tried to invite him but are turned down, despite being unlikely friendly.
Its leader Orochi defeated the martial artist Gouketsu and recruited him as a member.
There are five primary objectives of the organization:
- Strike fear to the human population through monster's rampage.
- Kidnapping important hostages that are vital to the operation of the Hero Association.
- Transform several powerful humans to boost military strength of the organization.
- Destroy the main force of the Hero Association, which is the S-class heroes, to weaken the Hero Association so they can attack the Hero Association HQ.
- Build the world where monsters reign over humanity.
Any monsters who don't join the Association are considered to be free monsters. It is shown that all monsters in the Association only join force to destroy the Hero Association and will not submit to Orochi as their leader in which some of them like Black Sperm or Gale Wind and Hellfire Flame will try to challenge Orochi's authority over all Mysterious Beings after the Hero Association falls.
The monster members also very cocky to think that they are stronger than Hero Association without taking note of the power of S-class heroes in which Pyskos has to remind them that their arrogance will be their downfall if they constantly underestimate the S-class heroes.
The atmosphere in the Monster Association is very tense and filled with no trust whatsoever. The monsters often split up into separate factions and do their own activities. Many higher-level monsters, such as Royal Ripper, Great Food Tub, and Pureblood even kill weaker members of the Association for fun or for food. Most of the monsters are also very hostile toward each other, and constantly make threats to kill them and to not get in their way.
The Monster Association consists of 500 monsters overall. There are around 30 known demon-level monsters, although many of them were killed in the raids against the cities.
