Plot Summary


Monkey Fist longs to fulfill prophecy as foretold by the Mystical Monkey Monk in the Golden Banana. To find the brightest monkey - Frederick - and follow him to the stars where the ultimate Monkey Master will be apparently made "unstoppable". Unfortunately for Monkey Fist it turned out to be a spelling mistake, and what the Monk meant to say was "Ron Stoppable"[1].

Personal Storyline

Kim has to muster the courage to confront her father about her being too old to continue to join him for the annual Rocket Booster Open Day. Her father is clearly showing signs of denying that his daughter is growing up. But Kim has a chance to prove her maturity to him when she has to go into space with Frederick to save Ron from Monkey Fist. Ron, genuinely eager to join the annual Rocket Booster event has his mind changed when introduced to Frederick - bringing out memories of his monkey trauma. However, he confronts his fears somewhat in space by learning to trust Frederick, despite him being a monkey, and facing off against Monkey Fist using his own Monkey Kung-Fu[1].

Memorable Quotes

Monkey Fist: You heard him. I will be unstoppable! I, the Ultimate Monkey Master will rule the world! Woooyah!

James: I’d like you all to meet the special new addition to our crew, Frederic.

Frederic: (computerised voice) “Welcome, friends.”

Keith: Hey, how come he uses that box thingy to talk?

James: I think you’ll like this, boys and girls. You see, Frederic isn’t a human astronaut – he’s a...

Ron: Monkey! Aaaaargh!

Frederic: Come... play. (pulls Ron)

Ron: No monkey touch, no monkey touch...

Keith: What’s his problem?

Kim: Long story short, Ron had a bad summer-camp experience. He didn’t get on with the monkey mascot.

Black kid: Whoa! (stares at Monkey Fist)

Monkey Fist: Take a picture, it’ll last longer.

Black kid: You’ve got hairy hands!

Monkey Fist: And the feet to match.

Black kid: Cool!

Monkey Fist: Ooh-hoo! Frederic has came back. Ooh, yes! The prophesy is back on track. I will be the Ultimate Monkey Master.

Kim: Monkey Fist, get a life. (throws her helmet to monkey fist before she doing the pose)

Ron: (posing in various ways) Hee-yah! Yah! Hoo!

Frederic: “Bring it on.” (they all pose)

Monkey Fist: GRRRRR! (breaks the helmet) Monkey Ninjas, attack!

Monkey Fist: But I was to be the Ultimate Monkey Master. I was to be unstoppable.

Ron: Dude, it’s not happening, get used to it.

Monkey Fist: Monkey Ninjas, attack!

Frank: Monkey what?

Ron: His legion of monkey ninjas. We captured them too.

Frank: Sorry, pal. There are no monkey ninjas on board.

Monkey Fist: I taught them the way of the ninja, and now they abandon me. NOOOOOOOO! (SOBS)

Ron: So, the monkey ninja just vanished?

Rufus: Coo-coo.

"Um...Hello. This is a little embarrassing, but I must correct one thing in my last message. Apparently some of us don't write very clearly. Anyway. When I said the leader of the monkey ninjas would be unstoppable, what I should have said was that the leader would be Ron Stoppable. My bad. Hope that didn't cause too much confusion."

— Mystical Monkey Monk

Team Possible's Transportation

  • Dr. Possible's car for the space center.
  • A Rocket, in order to get in space, and to rescue Ron, who went into space with Monkey Fist.


  • Ron says: "Get yer stinking paws off me, you filthy monkey!". This is a parody of Charlton Heston's classic line from 1968's "Planet of the Apes":"Get your stinking paws off me, you d---ed dirty ape!".


  • 19th episode in chronological order.
  • Kim can fit into the very same shirt, which her father gave her when she was only eight years old, which is highly unlikely. Her midriff is showing, although Ron's rocket booster shirt fits him perfectly, although, he probably got his rocket booster shirt the same time, although that has not been verified.
  • Frederick was an astronaut at the Middleton Space Center, and served the prophecy, by being the false brightest monkey, when in reality, the Brightest Monkey was Monkey Fist, himself. The correct prophecy, had already mentioned Ron Stoppable by name, but the monkey, who wrote the prophecy, could not write very clearly, and it was mistranslated, as being "Unstoppable, instead."


  • At the beginning of the episode, Monkey Fist has four monkey ninjas, but when he invades the space center, he only has three. Later on the space station again, it's back to four.
  • After the artificial gravity is turned off. Kim is capable of moving through the air with out pushing off of anything. This is a physical impossibility.
  • When one of the Rocket Booster children says "I think she's my babysitter", the girl with blonde pigtails is the one whose head is moving, implying that she is saying the line. But when we cut to a wide shot halfway through the line, the black-haired kid standing next to her is the one whose mouth is moving.
  • When Kim shoves Ron out of the Rocket Booster room, she has no backpack, yet when she is crossing the car-park she has one.
  • At the end, when Kim takes off her space helmet and throws it at Monkey Fist, he breaks it, but when Kim and Ron get off the space ship, she has her helmet back.
  • When Monkey Fist is being held by the guards at the end, the black rings around his eyes disappear briefly as he's calling the monkey ninjas.
