Monolifts are small rock, mountain-shaped creatures with hands and blue feet that appear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. In the field, Monolifts carry rocks, and upon sighting Mario and Luigi, will chase them for a short duration and throw a rock at them as a last effort to attack them. They appear to be hostile, assist Flibbee Rs and work for their boss Mammoshka.

In battle, Monolifts hold 2-4 rocks over their head. In the uncommon instance it's holding a stack of four rocks, it'll turn red and struggle to hold the stack up. If the Monolift is jumped on during this time, the weight will be too much for it and the Monolift will be squished and defeated instantly.

When attacking, they either may approach a Bro. and hold the stack of rocks even higher over its head, making them shake back and forth. The approached Bro. must hammer the Monolift when the rocks and tilting away from them to make them all fall on the Monolift. Failure to do so successfully will result in the Monolift after a small period to throw the rocks at a very vertical arc into the approached Bro. or for the rocks to fall on the Bro.

Monolifts may also throw their stack of rocks high into the air, and punch them into Mario and Luigi which they must jump over. If the Monolift faces Mario and the background, it's about to punch a metal rock at him. If the Monolift faces Luigi and the foreground, it's about to punch one at him. If the Monolift is about to punch a soft orange rock, it will break into two and fly towards both Bros. who must jump over them completely as unlike the metal ones, landing on them still does damage.

If a single Grumbell and Monolift is present in the battle, they may perform an attack together than involves the Monolift dropping its stack of rocks and the Grumbell dropping to the floor. The Monolift will then pick up the Grumbell and begin weightlifting after twitching its eye. After several lifts, the Monolift will throw the Grumbell at the Bro. it targets. If it twitches so its left eye is bigger, it will aim at Luigi. If it twitches so its right eye is bigger, it will aim at Mario. This attack takes up the Grumbell's attack turn.

A stronger version of these known as Monolift Rs appear later on in the game.
