"It's like the Corruption mod, but for monster fuckers".
Monday Dusk Monolith is a Friday Night Funkin' mod that is being developed by Squidley, Pukiminecraft, Snart_Studio, Wreach_, DauseRetch and Joeki.

The story behind this mod is that the characters of Friday Night Funkin' are being mutated by a strange monolith that has landed on Earth, and Boyfriend, the only one not infected by said monolith, is the only one who can save them, with the power of music!


Tropes:

  • Adaptational Backstory Change: Daddy Dearest is an ex rockstar, but he dropped it to pursue a career as a scientist, while Mommy Mearest is an investigator rather than a popstar.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Daddy Dearest shows no animosity towards Boyfriend this time around. And rather than being concerned on his daughter dating, he's concerned for both her and her boyfriend's safety. Once Boyfriend demonstrates how music can cure the infected victims, Daddy Dearest wishes them luck and pursues his old rockstar career in an effort to help stop the spread.
  • Adaptational Species Change:

    • Girlfriend and her parents are humans in this mod's lore, having been turned into demons by the monolith. Girlfriend was only half infected, while Daddy Dearest and Mommy Mearest have been fully mutated.
    • Skid and Pump have been transformed into an amalgamation of each other and the Eyes of The Universe, though this was due to a wish they made to become one with their friend rather than the monolith's doing.
    • Senpai is a spyware computer assistant rather than a dating sim character.
  • Body Horror: The monolith's mutations fully invoke this:
    • Girlfriend was only half mutated by the monolith, but part of said mutation is a giant horn surrounded by teeth sticking out of her right eye.
    • Daddy Dearest began to grow extra eyes and a mouth in his chest, as well as the more typical traits of a stereotypical demon. It appears he tried to amputate his arm to stop the infection in an early stage, but it went further up and forced a new set of tentacles out of the stump.

    • Due to merging with the Eyes of The Universe, Skid and Pump are a complete mess of limbs, as well as other body parts.
    • Monster has eyes all over his body, bones sticking out of his hands and legs, and an additional mouth on his chest.
    • Pico's left arm has merged with a gun, and he also has a gun sticking out of the top of his face, making him blind as a result.
    • Mommy Mearest has teeth where her eyes should be.
  • Canon Foreigner: Lila, Skid's mother from the Spooky Month series, is set to appear in this mod as one of the opponents. Like everyone else excluding Boyfriend, Tankman and Ritz, she's been infected and mutated by the monolith.
  • The Corruption: The monolith's MO, mutating those that it infects.
  • Death by Adaptation: It appears Skid did not survive merging with Pump and the Eyes of The Universe, having become an actual skeleton.
    Couch Gag: SKID IS
    FUCKING DEAD
  • Dem Bones: Skid appears to have turned into a skeleton as a result of merging with the Eyes of The Universe, as seen with the bones sticking out of "Skidump".
  • Fun with Acronyms: Tankman leads a mutant-exterminating organisation that goes by the name of T.A.N.K. (That Anomaly Needs Killing).
  • Fusion Dance: Due to making a wish to become one with the Eyes of The Universe, Skid and Pump have merged with the being, with the fusion going by the name "Skidump".
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Within the mod's lore, Ritz has constructed tons of mouse-themed robots to assist T.A.N.K.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Boyfriend has a scar on his right eye, though according to invoked Word of God it's just to make him look cool and he wasn't actually attacked in the eye.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Pico is dead set on hunting and killing the infectees of the monolith, whilst being completely unaware that he's been infected himself.
  • Knight Templar: Tankman and his troops are set on killing those who have been mutated by the monolith, even though Boyfriend can save them with the power of music.
  • The Monolith: The Big Bad of the mod, being the source of the virus that's infecting everyone.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Due to Skid’s Death by Adaptation, Lila has outlived her son.
  • Sanity Slippage: Infectees of the monolith suffer from this, and Daddy Dearest in particular is still trying to hold on to his own sanity. Infectees that get successfully saved by Boyfriend regain their sanity.
  • Shout-Out: While Monster was confirmed to not be a reference to Lemon Demon by the devs of the original Friday Night Funkin', his monolith-induced mutations seem to more closely reference the mascot of the band, in that he has large horns sticking out of the top of his head, and said horns are red in his icons.
  • Spider People: Lila's mutations turn her into a spider-human hybrid.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: The infection hates music, so Boyfriend wears a speaker belt to protect himself from the infection and to play music to save everyone else.
  • Whole Plot Reference: As the tagline of the mod says, Monday Dusk Monolith is quite similar to Friday Night Funkin': Corruption with the concept of the cast being corrupted into monsters by the titular Monolith.
