Concept and creation
His name is likely taken from "ammonite" (アンモナイト; anmonaito).
Monaito shares his appearance with most other elder Namekians, although carrying a staff similar to Kami's.
Monaito is friendly and wise. He holds Granolah in high-regard, but becomes stern and straight with him after he expresses desire to use the Cereal Dragon Balls for a selfish wish or wishing at the expense of others such as the Sugarians who lost their original homeworld.
Dragon Ball Super
Granolah the Survivor Saga
Main article: Granolah the Survivor Saga Monaito is first mentioned by a Sugarian while Granolah is buying supplies to bring to his house, which is located on top of a mountain a good distance from the city. He is watching TV when Granolah arrives, and the two converse about his recent jobs and Frieza's revival. Granolah mentions attempting to use the Cereal Dragon Balls to grant him the power, but Monaito calmly tells him no. He informs Granolah that his wish and desire for revenge is selfish, and any wish made to revive the world would leave the Sugarians without a place to go. After he goes to sleep, Granolah takes the Dragon Ball, and steals the other one in an attempt to make his wish.
Monaito is woken later on when Granolah tests his power nearby. As he gets up, he notices the Dragon Balls are missing and heads out to see Granolah. He is dismayed to hear that he has sacrificed most of his remaining years in exchange for power and urges him once again not to seek out Frieza though Granolah ignores him and heads off.
Watching from afar, Monaito witnesses the struggle of Vegeta and Granolah and wonders who he is fighting, assuming Granola´s opponent could be Frieza. It is shown that the impact of the explosion between the clash of powers between Vegeta and Granola reached the point where he was watching from.
Later he is picked up in Granolah's spaceship by Oatmeel and is taken to the battlefield just as Granolah is preparing a sacrificial final attack. Monaito calls out to Granolah to stop and the sudden distraction of his appearance gives Goku the chance to knock Granolah to the ground. Monito leaves the ship and tells Granolah that he had lied to him as there was one Saiyan who did not earn his vengeance telling him that forty years ago, the one who had saved both Granolah and himself was Bardock.
