Monkey Men are beast-like men from Mongo, who are used to fight in the arena in Ming's palace.

Comic strip

Four monkey men fight Flash Gordon in the Flash Gordon (comic strip). Flash, stripped to his underwear, beats all 4 with his bare hands in a matter of moments. The monkey men are reddish-orange, and wear shorts.


Three monkey men fight Flash in the arena in Ming's palace in Chapter 101: The Planet of Peril of the "Flash Gordon (serial)" serial. The monkey men look more or less like human wrestlers, but they make funny faces, and 2 out of 3 of them have fangs. They don't win. 2 of the 3 were performed by wrestlers Bull Montana and Constantine Romanoff.
