Monkeys are small, level 3 monsters that may be found in a variety of locations. They are not ideal for training combat, as they have a low amount of hitpoints and have few useful drops. However, monkey bones do give slightly more Prayer experience than regular bones.

During the Tai Bwo Wannai Trio quest, all monkeys located on Karamja cannot be damaged by Melee attacks (the player will be unable to touch them), Magic and Ranged are the only ways to kill them. This only occurs during the quest; before and after the quest they can be damaged by all attacks. It is not possible to kill them using ring of recoils as they do not attack back during the quest. If the player is wielding a halberd and is standing out of the monkey's melee range then they will be able to hit the monkey with the halberd's melee attack.
