The Monster Association consists of around 500 monsters, about 30 of which are disaster level Demon or higher. The boss (ボス, Bosu) is the Monster King, Orochi, although the organization is actually overseen by the military advisor (参謀, Sanbō), Gyoro Gyoro. Below them in ranks are the executives (幹部, Kanbu) who are specially promoted by Gyoro Gyoro.
The Monster Association is founded on the belief that one monster alone will eventually fall, but all of them together can defeat the heroes. Many monsters believe that they are stronger than the heroes; Gyoro Gyoro has to remind them that this will be their downfall, though sometimes she uses this to her advantage.
The goal of the Monster Association is to end the Hero Association and create a world of monsters ruled by Monster King Orochi. However, most members only joined forces for the former and do not view Orochi as their king, but they do acknowledge his great power. The plan is to lure the Hero Association into a decisive showdown. There are three primary objectives that are required to make this plan feasible:
- Strike fear to the human population through monster rampage.
- Kidnapping important hostages that are vital to the operation of the Hero Association.
- Transform powerful humans into monsters to boost military strength of the organization.
New monsters are recruited by offering Monster Cells to strong humans, such as the martial artists of Super Fight. Whoever eats the cells transform into a monster, but it has to be eaten raw. Typically they are eaten one per person, as eating more can result in failure and death. A Dragon-level monster born from the Monster Cells is considered a "huge success." Other monsters can join the Monster Association by going to the base beneath Z-City and meet with Gyoro Gyoro.
Disaster level is everything to the Monster Association. Gyoro Gyoro assesses each member and assigns them a level. The executives are monsters that earned the level of Dragon. Lesser monsters have the utmost respect for the executives and fear provoking them.
Outside of the executives, there are at least three other monsters that have reached the level of Dragon: Gale Wind and Hellfire Flame are Demon-level in their human forms, and Dragon-level in their monster forms; they are executive candidates but claim to not care for their ranks. Phoenix Man was originally Demon-level, but became Dragon-level upon resurrecting.
Members are not permitted to kill each other as it will weaken the organization, although Gyoro Gyoro admits that this is difficult to enforce. Many of the monsters are hostile to each other. Presumably, this only applies to strong monsters since Gyoro Gyoro herself treats weak monsters as expendables and sometimes feeds them to Orochi. Even Demon-level monsters are not safe: Orochi ate Awakened Cockroach for losing, and Gyoro Gyoro used Rhino Wrestler as bait. Monsters with useful abilities, such as Do-S, are somewhat protected.

In the manga, however, they have around 500 members.
- All of the members in the web-comic are Demon or above.
- Monster Cells were introduced in the manga, and never existed in the web-comic.
- In the manga-only, The Organization sent G5 to assist the Monster Association, tying the two factions together.
- The idea of the Monster Association being previously the home of the Subterranean People was a suggestion by a fan on stream.
- In both the web-comic and the manga, the Monster Association mirrors the Hero Association.
- In the web-comic, the Monster Association has 17 members, which is the number of S-Class heroes in the Hero Association.
- In the manga, the Monster Association has around 500 members, which is roughly the number of pro heroes in the Hero Association.
- Monsters who are not a part of the Monster Association are sometimes referred to as freelance monsters by members of the association.
