Monkeys can be assigned as a slayer task by Turael and Spria. There is no combat or slayer requirement needed to be assigned monkeys. Monkeys are commonly found in tropical areas throughout Gielinor.

Regular monkeys are most commonly killed to complete this task. However, there are high level alternatives locked behind Monkey Madness I and Monkey Madness II, namely Monkey Archers, Monkey Guards, Monkey Zombies, Tortured gorillas, Demonic gorillas, and Maniacal monkeys.
