Physical Appearance

Mandrill is a large, black mandrill with a red nose. His belly is white and he has two strong arms and legs. His hair spikes up on top of his small white ears.

Golf Lessons is received upon perfecting Hole in One. It talks briefly about Monkey and Mandrill. Mandrill is said to "Monkey out sometimes" and tells the Golfer that a real golfer should be able to hit a ball regardless of speed. He tells the Golfer to focus on cues and not power.

This is similar to what actually happens in the Hole in One practice. Mandrill greets the player with a "Hellooooo!" as he pounds his chest. Mandrill throws the ball at the player quickly without any warning before Monkey reminds him to use a cue.


At the beginning of Rhythm Heaven Fever, Mandrill helps to teach the player to pay attention to the music and cues and not just focus on the visuals. Mandrill displays how hard it can be to play without important audio cues.
