** Distraction by Ninja Monkeys might provide a great reversing power, but if you only rely on them without others while facing Regens, you're facing an endless army that will make you lose.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Monkey God Temple in 5 is a little half-n-half. It fires enormous beams capable of tearing anything less than a [=BFB=] to shreds, but it costs a whopping $125,000[[note]]On Medium, the prices on other difficulties (From Easy to Impoppible (still including Medium)) are $106,250/$125,000/$135,000/$150,000. Either way, you're still not going to get it for quite a while. There is also the Monkey Village, which lowers the prices by 10%, but it's still (Easy-Impoppable) $95,625/$112,500/$121,500/$135,000[[/note]], since you have to buy laser, plasma, AND the Sun God to even access it. (And that's without the range powerups- counting those, the price goes up to $127,500.) It can also sacrifice any player-bought towers in its range & [[AllYourPowersCombined absorb their powers]], to the point of becoming powerful enough to down Z.O.M.G.s as though they were red bloons, but that means you need to pay for the absorbed towers (and you'll need a ton of money to get it to maximum power). Of course, this is normally only used in freeplay because of its high costs & although it is perfect for the rounds where bloons gain extra movespeed & health, there isn't anything forcing you to use it.

** Also the Wizard Lord: Only appearing in one challenge level, it has the powers of both the Tempest Tornado & Dragon's Breath, plus it can summon its own special phoenix that [[BreathWeapon BREATHES LASERS]] and deals increased damage compared to the regular phoenix. Plus it ''can't be sacrificed by the Temple of The Monkey God''[[note]]although why you would ''bother'' with a Monkey Temple, given the circumstances of the challenge, is beyond mortal reasoning[[/note]]. However, it requires a sacrifice of the most expensive tower currently on the map every 2 rounds, otherwise you fail the mission.

** Also the Robo Monkey, which shoots 2 per frame to the Sun God's 1.5. Also its upgrade, the [[spoiler:Technological Terror]]. It fires the same amount of beams as the Robo Monkey, but its plasma is green & extremely deadly: a single stream of this green plasma is twice as deadly as a single stream of the regular purple plasma, but since it fires 2 streams of it...

** There's also the original monkey temple, which fires ''3 times as fast as a single Sun God'' when activated. Its activated by sacrificing at least $30,000 money & 40 towers to it.

** It is also very powerful compared to most other towers. A single stream of its green plasma is like 2 streams of the regular purple plasma rolled into 1, & it fires 2 of them, effectively dealing as much DPS as [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill 4 Plasma Monkeys]]. Plus, a single stream of it can pop 5 bloons per shot, the left path upgrades increase its pierce rate. In short, it is stronger against M.O.A.B.s then even the ''Sun God'', & stronger still then the ''Ray of Doom''. *** Against swarms of regular bloons though, the other mention towers make it look worthless by comparison, because the Sun God's beams spread apart the further they travel & the Ray of Doom's destructive beam can destroy even large swarms of ceramics in seconds. They also have superior popping power to boot.

* VideogameFlamethrowersSuck: Subverted with the "Dragon's Breath" upgrade for the Monkey Apprentice, which does massive amounts of damage per second & makes for a great defense when saving up money. As of nowadays, it also doesn't remove the apprentice's other spells (except the fire ball attack).

* WeaponOfMassDestruction: The Temple of the Monkey God is one the most extreme weapons one could ever see. It sacrifices all towers in its former radious when upgrade, but also gets their powers. In fact, when given the max sacrifice ([[spoiler: 3 Big Ones, 1 Master of Air, 1 Bloon Liquifier, 1 Arctic wind & 1 High energy beacon or MIB Call to Arms, & 1 Technological Terror if you like]]), can destroy any bloons that the game currently has, including ''Z.O.M.G.s''. ** With a tier 4 Super Monkey Lair in the moble version of BTD5, it becomes ''even more powerful''. The reason is because the 4th tier SML gives the temple an ability that doubles the firing speed for all of its powers & grants it extra range for 10 seconds. In short, this ability turns the Temple into even more of a GameBreaker when activated. ** The Technological Terror is less powerful then a near max temple, but still pretty darn effective. It fires 2 streams of green plasma(each one being twice as powerful as the regular purple plasma) & has a lethal ability called the "Bloon Annihilation", which generates a short ranged force-field that does 1000 damage to all MOAB-class bloons next to it. ** There is also the [[MeaningfulName Ray of Doom]], which shoots a constant solid beam of bloon destruction with a pop rate of ''100'', practically killing any & all regular bloons in less then a second. The problem though, is that it is notoriously weak against MOAB-class bloons, since it only pops 1 per frame for those. Even so, a single one is still pretty effective against the M.O.A.B.s & B.F.B.s, but the Z.O.M.G.s are another story...

** Both final upgrades for the Monkey Ace: the Spectre which rapidly fires darts '''&''' hydra rockets directly at the bloons & the Operation Ground Zero, which grants the ability which can be used to clear the screen of bloons. ** The Spiked Mines Factor: It fires at an ''extreme'' rate & its spiked balls explode when they reach their pop cap, which happens to be 16 bloons. Since its downgrade is the Spiked Ball Factory, its spikes also deal 3x as much damage to ceramics & MOAB-classers as regular spikes. ** The Apache Dartship fires darts at the bloons like a machine gun & also fires a quad-storm of rockets every couple of seconds. Its downgrade also allows it to pop bloons with the blades that it uses to fly with.

** The Aircraft Carrier launches up to 3 mini-aces at a time. These mini-aces fire 2 streams of darts & the Monkey Aces trademark 8-dart spread fire. They are great at popping bloons from all around the track.

* [[GameBreakingBug Game Breaker Bug]] There is/used to be a glitch in BTD2 which, by using tab and enter to select a tack tower's firing speed upgrade, you can upgrade its attack speed to Hypersonic. Which is the starting firing speed of a Super Monkey. That shoots in eight directions at once. Yeah...

rephrased it, as the boomerang thrower pretty much IS throwing glaives. Only loss is another wik to Fuuma Shuriken (also, is the trope just "Large Throwing Stars"? I would've thought the trope would be "Huge Throwing Stars"?
*** The FuumaShuriken that the Boomerang Throwers can be upgraded to use are referred to as "[[Film/{{Krull}} glaives]]".
