Questions from the comments: 

Reveal a pixel of the next map?
Is a picture okay? 

What do the monkeys in Bloons td 6 think of plants vs zombies?
A bit deja vu! 

Are the Bloons going extinct due to the monkeys constantly hunting them down?
You’d think so but they never seem to run out! 

Quincy or crossbow master, who is the better archer?
Well… one of them crits. 

What are your personal thoughts about Bloons Wiki?
It's amazing! We even use it to look stuff up! 

How does ben makes money?
We cannot disclose that information… 

What do you think of this fan art?
Wow, what an amazing piece of art! 

Has fusty ever covered himself head to toe in flowers?
Yes and also flour. It was a mess. 

Is Castle Wars 2.5 coming to the Ninja Kiwi Archive?
No, the Archive has all the games it will have on it. :) 

monke or monkey?

Captain Churchhill came out first, so why did Benjamin get his second skin sooner?
Because all the monkeys wanted to par-tay! 

Have you guys ever considered listening to a fan's concept and used it? If not, then for what reason?
We have considered it! However, we have an amazing team here with a lot of ideas so we tend to use ideas made or suggested by our team. 

how come professor evil gets a 4th tower but we dont
He cheats. 

Do monkeys ever get jealous of other monkey's upgraders or items?
Maybe sometimes! 

In the MOAB graveyard, there's the skeleton of a giant blimp with remnants of a tattered gray envelope. Is this a BAD that's had the purple hue sun-bleached out of it, or could it be something even bigger...?
Still undetermined at this time… Our team is looking into it though. 

Do you track the most used monkey, and if so what is it?
Yes! This is for 2021: 

Can we see some usage stats for powers in BTD6, pretty please?
Cash drop supreme

Is biker bone's full name bones biker bones? And is octobones's full name bonesoctobones?
No, that would be silly. 

Why dose Churchill say "the sun god fights on the side with the best artillery" when the original quote was said by Napoleon Bonaparte? ("god fights on the side with the best artillery")
Because the best generals are those who have served in the artillery. - Napoleon Bonaparte 

What time was the cave monkey frozen in, and why did I first look at it and see a tuxedo Benjamin?
So long ago we don’t have records! 

Is the Jedi Monkey just a reference? Or are there actual Jedi's in the Bloons universe?

the BFB's in btd4/5 had an anti dart monkey symbol on them but in btd6 they don't have it, why the change?
It felt a little retro. 

If I'm playing BTD6 at night and/or in a dark map, and Adora tells me to embrace the light, what am I supposed to do?
Turn on your flashlight 

Would you ever consider, updating Bloons 1,2 Bloons td 1 ,zombie trailer park on the AppStore to be compatible with the new IOS?
Probably not at this time as we’re focusing all our efforts on cool new stuff! All of those games can be found in the Ninja Kiwi Archive on Steam though if you want to play them. 

Do dart monkeys somehow manage to make infinite darts while throwing them or do they just have a lot?
Just lots and lots. 

Are there any other animals in the Bloons universe? I know there are bears and bees (beekeeper) and fish (sushi) but are there any others?
The heroes have some other animal pets! 

what's the monkeys favorite food besides bananas?
Depends on the monkey. Pancakes are a good bet though. 

How does Adora *Blood* Sacrifice Banana Farms and Villages among other non-monkey towers if they have no blood?
Are you sure they don’t have blood? 

Will you add the wheel of fate to Ninja Kiwi Archive?
No, the wheel of fate along with our old website clans and leaderboards are now a thing of the past.

Do Gwen, Brickell, and Sauda have any siblings?
Gwen does! 

Hello, by any chance, would it be possible to allow Doscord Rich Pressence know which game mode is being played in addition to the map? ~ MECHDRAGON777
We’ll think about it!

How are you so good at shaping people's childhood?
Years of practice! 

What makes a monkey a good Alchemist?
Willing to drink their own experiments. 

How can a sharpened dart pop multiple Bloons, but only get through one layer of each?
Dr. Monkey tried explaining it to us once, hyper-trans-phasial-realities I think he said before we zoned out.

How does Pat feel when you place him high up, e.g. on high finance?
He’s not overjoyed but will do it for you! 

Will we ever get anymore plushies? The BMC-era Super Monkey plush was really neat and I still have him on my collection bookcase, and ol' Jeffery (that's his name) could use a BTD6-era pal.
We would LOVE to do more plushies but they were really difficult for us to do last time and our supplier who does all of our other merch doesn’t make them at the moment. We will continue to look into it! 

What happens if there are no bananas?
*sad monkey noises* 

how can you fit 2 pink bloons in the smaller black bloons?
We’d answer the question but we think you might feel deflated by the response 

Can you get Rohan to tell us a joke?
When learning how to walk just remember it’s as easy as
Step 1
Step 2!

We ask you so many questions so can you ask us a question?
If we WERE to do plushies, what would you wanna see? Super Monkey? Dart Monkey? Quincy?


Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
