Blog / World of the Munatar

Go To

World of the Munatar is a multi-fandom, multi-muse roleplay blog on the website Tumblr. It was created by, and is currently run by, Tumblr user tomthehawksfan (often represented by "The Munatar", a muse/faceclaim resembling Makoto Naegi from the series Danganronpa). The blog does roleplays for various series' like Danganronpa and Pokémon, focusing largely on story with established relationships between the blogs' characters, while also having many crack verses in the mix like an entire crack wrestling verse dubbed "Munatar's Wrestling Association".

The blog is split into two canons, "main canon" and "rp canon". "Main canon" is where the main story of the characters and their worlds are told, whereas "rp canon" stories are side stories told using elements of world-of-the-munatar's story and the story of whoever is roleplaying with them. The Danganronpa world contains fanmade characters not seen in the official games, with some, like Ultimate Drummer Reiji Mioda (younger brother of Ibuki Mioda), adding storylines that wouldn't be found in the official series. On the Pokémon side, there exists an entire fanmade region called the Pacificus region where Crystal hails from, presiding as one of its eight Gym Leaders. In the Hoenn region, Wattson has retired and has handed off his Gym Leader duties to Raisuke and Anzu Fukumoto, who together balance their duties running their Gym and protecting the Hoenn region alongside the other Gym Leaders from threats like the invading Team Rainbow Rocket (spearheaded by Rainbow Rocket Archie and Maxie). Generally, the Danganronpa verses will feature characters like Reiji and Ultimate Fashionista Enoko Jumanshida more prominently, while the Pokémon verses will feature characters like Team Rainbow Rocket Grunt Kayo and Gym Leader/Pokémon Ranger Crystal more. Main characters like Raisuke Fukumoto and the Black Plague are the exception, as they have large roles regardless of the verse. One noteworthy thing about the blog is that it rarely ever uses just one of its muses at any one time, so interactions between its own muses can be expected, leading to things like the best-friends relationship between Reiji and Raisuke, and Enoko just seeming to hate everyone she comes across.

Currently, the blog consists of worlds for Danganronpa, Pokémon, a crossover world of Persona and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, and the Wario series.

Main tropes:

  • Action Series: Can we say... the whole effing blog?
  • Anti-Villain: Black Plague... and his love of brutally killing the real villains.
  • Reality Warper: Also Black Plague, due to his ability to seemingly appear and disappear wherever and whenever he pleases (including going beyond the fourth wall... mostly to harass the Munatar).
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Definitely Black Plague.
  • Butt-Monkey: Sadly, the Munatar gets this trope due to how much the Black Plague likes to harass him.
  • Brother–Sister Team: Raisuke and Anzu Fukumoto, as they are often put together in roles.

Danganronpa tropes:

  • Alpha Bitch: Enoko Jumanshida, whose cynical and blunt nature often makes her hard to get along with.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Enoko Jumanshida, due to her blunt, negative personality until she sacrifices herself to help the others get out of the school in the Despair arc.
    • Later passed down to Masayoshi Amano and Yasuhiro Hagakure, due to their appalling stupidity.
  • The Fashionista: Both Enoko Jumanshida and Junko Enoshima, as they're both "Ultimate Fashionistas".
  • Best Friend: Raisuke and Reiji — just two boys who like to hang out and play music together. (Ibuki often joins in, too.)
  • Long-Lost Relative: Ibuki Mioda, to her brother Reiji.
  • The Stoner: Masayoshi Amano, a carefree, inoffensive pot grower whose talent is literally the "Ultimate Stoner".
    • Stoners Are Funny: Chances are, any time Masayoshi gets some time in the spotlight, he's probably high as a kite.
  • Ax-Crazy: Junko Enoshima, for her twisted and psychotic personality.
    • Big Bad: Also applies to Junko, as the leader of the Ultimate Despairs.

Pokémon tropes:

  • Action Girl: Crystal, who serves as both Nordridge City's Gym Leader and a Pokemon Ranger fighting to protect Pacificus and the world from evil.
  • Big Bad: Giovanni, leader of Team Rocket and main antagonist of the Pokemon verse.

Persona/JJBA tropes:

  • Paranormal Investigation: Into the Alterworld. Mostly told through the heroes' perspective, but Yu Narukami and Naoto Shirogane from Persona are also in on the investigation, as are Jotaro Kujo and Josuke Higashikata from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
  • Best Friend: Raisuke, Anzu, and Joichi, the first student who greeted the siblings at their new school. The three have been friends ever since, even making their first journey into the Alterworld together (If not accidentally).
  • Superpower Lottery: As this is a crossover of Persona and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, expect almost everyone who appears to either have a Persona, Stand, or, particularly in the heroes' case, an entity that combines the two together. Naturally, some will be stronger than others.
  • Trapped in Another World: Namely, the Alterworld, a hellish alternate dimension where most of the action takes place.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: How does one enter the Alterworld? By going to the main page of a blog.
  • Wake Up, Go to School & Save the World: That's Persona for you!

Wario tropes

  • Laughably Evil: Wario and Waluigi because of the schemes they plot which almost never work out well for them.
  • Big Eater: Wario, who holds the record for most tacos eaten at Waluigi's Taco Stand.
  • Not Cheating Unless You Get Caught: Hello there, Waluigi, Mr. Uses-a-Gameshark-to-get-the-highest-scores-in-all-the-Warioware-microgames!
  • Butt-Monkey: Poor Raisuke and Anzu... they can never catch a break with their boss.
