Monster Strike (モンスターストライク Monsutā Sutoraiku) is a mobile physics game with elements of role-playing, strategy and cooperative multiplayer. It is developed by Mixi for iOS and Android platforms. The game was co-created by Yoshiki Okamoto. In Japan, its name is often shortened to MonSt (モンスト Monsuto). The game can be summed up as a cross between Nintendo's Pokémon and Capcom's Metal Walker; the former in that it centers around monster collecting and the latter in that battles take place using catapult mechanics.
By June 30, 2015, the game had daily revenues of $4.2 million, grossing more than $1 billion in 2015. The game subsequently grossed $1.3 billion in 2016, and another $1.3 billion in 2017. As of October 2018, the game has grossed over $7.2 billion worldwide, surpassing Puzzle & Dragons to become the highest-grossing mobile app of all time.
A more traditional role-playing game of Monster Strike was released for the Nintendo 3DS in December 2015. The game was adapted into an anime series in 2015. An anime film adaptation titled Monster Strike The Movie was released on December 10, 2016. A second anime film, titled Monster Strike the Movie: Sora no Kanata, was released on October 5, 2018 in Japan. Monster Strike has crossed over with other verses in different kinds of media, including: Godzilla, Evangelion, Ultra Series and Marvel Comics.
Note: Within versus threads, the original poster should specify which incarnation of the monster that is being used.

Power of the Verse
Monster Strike is a very powerful verse, as it has several broken abilities and ranges widely in power. Very often there are characters who are planetary threats with several of casual Planet and Solar System busters. Finally, the existence of celestial weapons like The Red Moon and the Death Gate used by deities to destroy entire multiverses boosts the power of the verse to Multiverse level.
There is a decent amount of hax in the verse like Unholy Manipulation, Space-Time Manipulation, Homing Attack, Manipulation, Telekinesis, Transformation and Cloth Manipulation, Gravity Manipulation, Soul Manipulation, Non-Physical Interaction, Time Stop, Fear Manipulation and Mind Manipulation among others.
