Monstropolis is a world in Kingdom Hearts III. It is based on the Disney/Pixar film Monsters, Inc.. It is a city inhabited by monsters and powered by laughter energy provided by Monsters, Incorporated.

Creation and development[edit]

Tetsuya Nomura revealed that trial models for the Toy Story and Monster's Inc. characters were at one point originally set to appear in Kingdom Hearts II, with negotiations from Pixar to have them appear in the game before they were shelved.[1]

Settings and Areas[edit]

Monstropolis encompasses all of the distinctive central locations to the Monsters Inc. factory.

Lobby and Offices

The world begins in the Lobby & Offices area. The initial area is a large circular hub-like area which features dual maps of the world over-looking it at opposite ends. Behind this area is access to scare floors K-P. Proceeding though a few small hallway sections leads to The Laugh Floor, marked off as floor F and color in green. The Laugh Floor is large/long room containing office departments on the left and door stations on right which allow monsters to enter the human world. Accessing the door station between Mike and Sulley allows for Sora to access the door vault.

The Door Vault

The initial stage of accessing the door vault is Sora sliding on the rails using flowmotion though defensive measures must be taken to avoid Heartless attacks as well as electrical malfunctions. Initially the party arrives at the upper levels though the next area and rail sliding section must be access by entering a door on the wall. At the next upper level section is a yellow door which leads to the door vault's lower level. Entering through the brown door on the left side will take the party back to the upper levels in which the rails can be used to return to the laugh floor. Contuniing to the end of lower level leads to a white door which will take the party to the factory.

The Factory

The initial area of the factory is the basement. Continuing to the next room leads to a yellow conveyer belt where initially the lasers must be dodged to continue. The next room is a series of hallways known as the ground floor. At the end of this room is a yellow elevator which will take the party to the second floor. Through the next series of hallways leads to a yellow lighted room which exits into another yellow conveyer belt section. Exiting the factory leads to the power plant

The Power Plant

Exiting through the initial brick hallways leads to the outside area known as the power plant. Reaching the top of the power plant known as the accessway leads to a dive that allows exploration of the Tank Yard. The crane allows the party to re-access the accessway. Utilizing the rail way on the right side leads to an indoor structure which contains a battlegate. The vault passage is directly after this and leads back to the service area which is at the very bottom door vault area. Taking the elevator at the end of room will take the party back to upper level of the door vault.


Sora, Donald, and Goofy arrive outside the building, but are freaked out by each other's monster forms. Sora is confused by their new looks and is further puzzled when they read the sentence "We Scare Because We Care". The trio walks into the building where they see two creatures with a child and Sora thinks that they're scaring her, but changes his mind after seeing her happy. Boo, Mike, and Sulley introduce themselves with Boo mistaking Donald for Mike Wazowski. Introductions are cut short when the Unversed appear, creatures that Sora has never seen before. Sulley and Mike get Boo to safety and decide to help the trio fend off the new legion.

Deciding to send Boo back to her world, Mike and Sulley lead the trio to the Laugh Floor. However, they find Unversed using the closet door portals to scare children for scream energy. Boo's door is sent back to the Door Vault in the process, forcing the heroes to find doors into the vault. Using stray doors to move around the vault, Sora, Donald, and Goofy find the Heartless have also appeared along with the Unversed.


  • Maintenance are mentioned by Sulley.
  • Trailer Son and Mom do not appear in the game physically, but are heard.

Character Design[edit]

Sora, Donald and Goofy turn into monsters when they visit the world.





Notes and references[edit]

  1. ^ Kingdom Hearts III Ultimania, Interviewer: "After KH2 was released, Pixar was purchased by Disney. Did this expand the range of worlds available for you to include in this title?" / Tetsuya Nomura: "Actually, we did make a few trial models of characters from Monsters Inc and Toy Story during the production of KH2, and we did begin negotiations to have them appear in the game. We did have to shelve them in the end, but I felt I couldn't make KH3 without including Pixar works, so I started up negotiations again—and this time, the situation between Disney and Pixar had changed, and we were able to make it happen. After we had finished deciding all the worlds for this game, Disney and Pixar kept releasing fascinating titles. I found myself wishing over and over again that we could have included this and that."
