We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Monkey King Bar is an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Weapons. However, it can only be completed with items from the Secret Shop.


Grants each attack a 35% chance to mini-stun and deal 160 bonus damage.
Proc Chance: 35%
Damage: 160
Stun Duration: 0.01
Debuff Bashed: Dispellable with strong dispels.


  • The proc chances of Mini-Bash from multiple Monkey King Bars work fully independently from each other.
    • However, in case of multiple procs happening on the same attack, the damage does not stack.
  • Does not work against wards and buildings, but works against allied units.

True Strike
Can be used by illusions. Pierces spell immunity.
Prevents your attacks from missing enemy units.


  • Also prevents melee attacks from missing due to the target moving more than 350 range away before the attack.
  • Does not work against buildings, works against any other unit, including wards and allied units.
  • Does not prevent attacks from getting canceled when the target gets too far away during the attack animation (motion buffer range).

  • Monkey King Bar's True Strike works against every form of miss chance, not only evasion. This means it is also a viable pickup when the enemy has sources of blind.
  • The 35 % chance to mini bash can cancel a channeling spell and also teleportation.


  • The Monkey King, Sun Wukong, is the subject of the Chinese folk novel Journey to the West. His weapon, Ruyi Jingu Bang (如意金箍棒), is a magical iron rod with ends banded with gold. Although it weighs several tons, the Monkey King can change its size at will so he may shrink it and tuck it behind his ear, or grow exponentially and duplicate into an infinite number of individual rods.
  • The True Strike ability reference however, does not come from the magical rod, but from his eyes, Jin Jing Huoyan (金睛火眼). After he had been trapped in Bagua Lu (八卦爐) 49 days, his eyes were refined into Jin Jing Huoyan, granting him the ability to distinguish demons from humans known as True Sight.
  • Monkey King minimap icon.png Monkey King's default weapon model is a Monkey King Bar.
