The Monster Association Headquarters is the hideout and base of operations of the Monster Association. The base is immense,[1] housing over 500 monsters, and leads out to multiple cities through the tunnels created by Elder Centipede.

OverviewEdit

The Monster Association's base is subterranean in nature, lying deep beneath the Z-City Ghost Town.[2] The Monster Association's presence is a large factor why the ghost town is abandoned.[3] It is largely vertical in shape, almost like an underground tower of sorts, with countless tunnels and staircases connecting its levels.[4] The base goes as deep as 1500 meters in some parts.[5] The main hall of the base is Orochi's throne room, where the Association gathers for briefings and other matters.[6] In its maze-like tunnels are other facilities such as prisons, where hostages are held, and mines, where worker monsters mine resources such as gold and jewels.[7] It also has functioning plumbing and toilets.[8]

The Monster Association headquarters are, to some extent, derived from tunnels which were already made by the Subterranean People and the giant centipedes.[9] Statues and other architecture made by the Subterraneans can still be found.[10] The Monster Association massacred the Subterraneans and took the place for themselves, submerging their countless corpses in a large lake deep within the base.[11]
