Monstropolis is the main location in the Monsters, Inc. series. It is the city Mike Wazowski and Sulley live in.



  • Monstropolis could possibly be named after the real life city of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
  • According to a DVD bonus feature, Monstropolis was founded after all of the monsters, who once co-existed with humans, were all chased off the mainland, and eventually moved to an island in an unknown part of the world (which Monstropolis is implied to be located) where they have lived ever since, and that the only way for them to enter human-inhabited areas was via closet doors.
  • In the original U.S. version, all crosswalk signals in Monstropolis read "Don't Stalk" and "Stalk" instead of "Don't Walk" and "Walk," respectively, but in the international releases, the crosswalk signals instead showed a four-clawed hand spread out for "Don't Stalk," and a two-headed monster walking for "Stalk."
  • Monstropolis sounds similar to Metropolis from the DC Comic universe.
