Tionishia, or "Tio" for short, is an Ogre and a member of the M.O.N., where she serves as the team's hostage escort/guard, due to her immense size and strength. She make her debut, alongside with the rest of the MON team in Chapter 11 and later becomes a recurring character in the manga series.


Armor Tio

Tionishia is a very tall woman with tan skin and long flowing blonde hair. She has fangs, pointed ears and very large breasts. In fact, her breasts have been shown to be even bigger than Kimihito's head. One of her most noticeable physical features is a single large red horn in her forehead, which connects directly to her skull. It is said to be quite sensitive.[1] In the anime, her horn is a dark purple color instead.

She is one of the tallest characters in the series, easily dwarfing any human and most other Liminals. When on missions she wears a bulky suit of armour, which covers everything except her horn. Because of her size, figure and horn, all of her clothes have to be custom-made.[1]

Outside of her armour, when on duty, she wears the standard M.O.N. uniform, with a long flowing dress-robe under it.


Ch41 - Tionishia bath

Tio's warm, loving nature.

Despite her size and strength, Tio is an incredibly gentle and warmhearted person. She cares greatly about her comrades and friends, and supports them in even the slightest accomplishments. It's partially due to this caring nature that Kimihto suspects that Tio is the "heart" of the M.O.N. team, and keeps them all together.

Tio is apparently somewhat sensitive about being mistaken for a man, due to her size. She can also be a bit absent-minded, as she started eating some chips in the middle of a hostage situation.

It's implied Tionishia may be arachnophobic as she was scared when entering a house covered with spider webs.[2] Despite this, she has no problem subduing Rachnera when she thought she and Miia were assassins trying to kill Kimihito.[3]

While on a date, which she presumably never had before, with Kimihito, Tio proved to be very excited and interested in things such as clothes, candy, music and puppies.[4]

Tio is said to have a sweet tooth, frequently looking for the newest candies and always eating something sweet whenever she has the chance. For some reason, she eats ice cream in little bites, while she eats cake in a single bite.[1]

She is quite fond of the clothes she wears, especially ones which she deemed as pretty. She is, however, self-conscious about her height and body measurements due to stores rarely having good clothes that fit her size, even ones that try to have stock for non-human customers. Tio becomes quite distressed when the clothes she tries on rip or get stuck, such as a skirt she wanted to purchase, but she was very happy when Kimihito offers to alter them.[4] Tio is quite the fashionista, and always follows the latest fashion. She especially loves clothes with frilly and lacy things on them.[1]

Overall Tio is very friendly and likes to hug others when people are kind to her and when she finds something cute. However her patience does have a limit and she will often say "Jeez" whenever she gets frustrated.[4]

Skills and Traits[]

  • Dancing: As revealed in Monster Musume: Monster Girls on the Job!, Tio is a very good dancer, to the point where even the managing director of the Tomas Theater describes her as excellent. Since Tio is a big fan of ANM48, she has practiced all her dances and can do their full set perfectly.
  • Tailory: During her stay in the grimoire, Tionishia started making clothes out of boredom. She is rather good at it, and can even make clothes appropriate for a Centaur's body type like Centorea's. Due to Tio's love to wear frilly and lacy things, most of the clothes she makes resemble gothic lolita fashion.[5]

Physical Traits[]

  • Ogre Physiology:
    • Heavyweight: While Tio seems to keep her weight a secret,[1] she is still very heavy. This was demonstrated when she tripped and fell on top of Zombina, as the latter complained that she would have been killed by the weight if she wasn't an undead zombie.[2]
    • Ep11 - Tio lifts vending machine

      Tio effortlessly lifts a vending machine.

      Immense Strength: As an ogre, Tionishia possesses strength far beyond that of most other Liminal species. She was shown to easily break through concrete walls.[6] She is also shown effortlessly holding down a furiously struggling Dragonewt, who was shown to be strong enough to easily overpower Lamias. However, it should be noted that said Dragonewt was exposed to cold water only moments before and therefore likely weakened.[7] She is able to lift a full-sized vending machine over her head without strain, and throw it quite a distance away.[4] On a visit to the Kurusu house with Manako and Zombina to have tea with Miia in the anime, Tio absentmindedly pushes her horn and forehead through the drywall and casing (top edge) of the inside doorway into the living room, only realizing it afterwards from the reactions of Miia and her friends.
    • Intimidating Figure: Due to her great size, Tionishia can be quite intimidating when fully clad in her body armor, to the point where even a group of villainous Orcs, who are themselves quite large compared to average humans, were scared of her. Tionishia herself seems to be quite sensitive about this (although the armor completely obscures any details of the wearer's gender).[6] When not in armor, people don't appear to mind being around her; she just happens to attract attention due to her height.[7]
Ch41 - Tio glomp

Tio's warm presence.

  • Calming Presence: Tio emits a "warm aura", considered motherly in nature, that is able to calm others down with her peaceful presence. It is able to cause stubborn people like Kii to become calm and cooperative and energetic, hardworking people like Polt to become tired and lethargic. Once a person is caught in her warm aura it becomes nearly impossible for them to escape it, until Tio decides to let them go. For these reasons Kimihito sees this ability as very dangerous. He also theorizes it is this aura that allows the many different clashing personalities of the girls in M.O.N. to work together as an effective cohesive unit.[8]

Skills and Statistics[]

Main: Tionishia/Game Stats



Tio and her team.

Tio and her M.O.N. teammates were first introduced when called in to to deal with a gang of Orcs that had taken over Libido Dojin. While they were distracted, Tio burst through the walls and got the hostages to safety. She later returned and took out two of the Orcs while the rest of the team fought. After arresting the Orcs, the team came to Kimihito's home with Ms Smith for dinner.[6]

Later when Kimihito caught a cold, Smith took time out from her heavy workload to "treat" him herself, leaving Tio and her group to do all the work themselves. While she stated it was to keep the other girls away from Kurusu while ill to avoid a viral mutation, she simply wanted to slack off. However, when she caught his cold, her co-workers refused to help her for the same reason.[9]

The M.O.N. were assigned to apprehend Rachnera, however she escaped. Later on they tracked her down to a warehouse where Smith agreed to having her transferred to Kurusu's household.[2]

Ep09 - Tio and Dolphin

Later on, when Kimihito was sent a death threat, M.O.N. were assigned to act as guards while Ms Smith went on a "date" with him. She was meant to follow them stealthily, however failed miserably due to her statuesque appearance. When Kimihito, Miia and Mero visited an aquarium, Tionishia misunderstood the fact that she could touch the dolphins for that she was allowed to take one with her. Subsequently, she is seen holding one underneath her arm, much to the dolphin's stress and the consternation of the Marine Park's staff.

She is later seen easily restraining Draco, while Ms. Smith files a report and reprimands the Dragonewt.[7] In the anime, Tio also receives a stuffed dolphin from the marine park's staff, much to her delight, as a replacement for the real dolphin, because of course she couldn't take it home with her.

Later, the members of M.O.N., excluding Doppel, decide to each go on a date with Kimihito after receiving a second threatening letter from D and in order to see whether or not D will appear while Kimihito is alone or with a girl. Tio was the first to date him, during which she dragged him around to different stores and various stops without minding his tired condition.

She then goes to purchase new clothes with him and asks for his opinion on a skirt she tried on, but gets slightly frustrated when he does not look at her. While he was distracted by her large bust, Tio misunderstood and states that he should more sensitive about her size. When attempting to try on more clothes, the clothes got stuck, to which Kimihito had to help take them off. This caused the skirt to rip slightly and her panties to be dragged off alongside them, showing her bare posterior. While embarrassed, Tio is mostly troubled that most clothes she happens to like are too small and she doesn't want to give up on the skirt, which she really likes. Kimihito offers to alter the size for her if she buys it, which results in her regaining happiness as well as gaining great admiration for him, culminating in Tio glomping him in front of the entire store.

When Manako was on her date, "D" was found to be tailing Kimihito during their date. All 3 members of M.O.N. attacked at once, with Tio lifting a vending machine and throwing it at the culprit, only for it to be revealed to be Doppel. Afterwards, after Doppel has explained her motives while being carried by Tio, Doppel asks if they all had a good time with Kimihito, which they agree to. Tio says she admires him for his good-hearted nature.[4]

Later, during the 'Mon Fest' arc, Tionishia would take Kimihito on a picnic towards the forest. Having an apparent dream of being a forest girl. While there, the two of them encounter Kii and Polt, who were attempting to clean up the forest after an incident where it was heavily polluted and damaged, the two of them decided to help in the effort. Throughout the chapter, Tionishia accidentally ends up charming both Kii and Polt. Kimihito deduces her charming nature could be dangerous, and thus tries his hardest to resist her. However, after they uncovered a natural hot spring, Tionishia's charms end up overwhelming Kimihito when she hugs him. The misadventure ends with Tio trying to wake up an unconscious Kimihito, all 3 girls believing he merely overheated in the spring water.[8]

In an attempt to help Manako overcome her fear of people, Tio and Zombina brought over a box of clothes for her to try on. She was later informed about the three dangerous extra species girls coming to the country. [10]

She appeared at the end of chapter 46, when the MON came to Kimihito's house. When out of nowhere Curie attacked Zombina.

After the incident, in chapter 52 Tio and the rest of M.O.N found Suu wandering around by herself and decided to give her a ride home.

Tionishia's Secrets

Ogres (オーガ, Ōga) are horned humanoid beings that possess the notable feature of not only great size, but phenomenal strength.

While many of their depictions in mythology may not hold true to how they are in reality, Ogres are indeed very tall in stature, ranging from two to three meters (6'6"-9'10"), and possess incredible strength. Thought to live in mountainous areas or wastelands, most Ogres have a single large horn protruding from their head and tend to have thick, tanned skin. Despite their large size, many ogres are laid-back and carefree.


  • Her name (Tionishia) is derived from her species name, that being the iconic Youkai Oni (鬼). In English, Oni can translate into "Ogre".
  • With a P-cup, Tionishia has the second biggest bust of all the cast in the series[1], second only to Cathyl[11]; each of her breasts appear to be bigger than Kimihito's head. [4] Because of this, her bras have to be custom made, and are called "a marvel of modern engineering".[1]
  • Due to her size, Tio has difficulty finding good clothes that fit, as it seems even size XXXL is too small for her. [4]
  • She is a fan of the Extraspecies band ANM48.[4]
  • Besides Centorea, Tio is the only girl who wears heavy armor.
  • Tionishia's design is heavily reminiscent of Yuugi Hoshiguma, an Oni Youkai from the Touhou Project series of bullet hell games. Both characters are taller than most characters, possess absurd levels of strength, have long blonde hair and feature a single large horn growing out from their foreheads.
  • MonMusu Anime Twitter account[12] revealed that her Birthday is May 2nd.
  • In Chapter 29, it is revealed that Tio thought a pony was a baby horse and was quite amazed to learn that it wasn't.
  • During Tionishia's state in the Grimoire in the school story arc, her size is drastically increased by the magic of the book. According to Chapter 75, she is over ten meters tall, which is the size of a Giant, which ironically is actually a subspecies of Ogres.
    • This makes Tionishia the fourth character in the series after Suu, Kii and Nega-Suu who have an unnatural giant form. Of this four, however, Tio is the only one whose giant form was not caused by the absorbtion of tocic waste/substances but by magic, as well as the only one whose giant form only exist on another plane of existence.
