- Music: "tartarus_0d01" (Thebel Block's Music)
In FES version, Monad becomes available after having reached the top of the Adamah Block (254F) and defeating the Reaper and turning in the quest. In the original version of Persona 3, it would become accessible right after reaching the top floor of the Adamah Block. Monad will appear as an enormous door to the right of the stairs at the entrance (on 1F). It consists of 10 floors, each of which are a great deal larger than the rest of Tartarus. Visually it resembles the Thebel Block, but with an orange color theme instead of green. All Shadows are Lv. 88+, making Monad an excellent way to level up quickly. From the 6th floor onward, the Shadows of this block will appear in mixed groups, forcing the party to choose their attacks more carefully and reducing the effectiveness of multi-target attacks.
The 10th and final floor of Monad contains a chest with ¥1,000,000. As part of Elizabeth's Request #55, the player is asked to defeat "The Ultimate Opponent" on Monad's 10th floor. The opponent is none other than Elizabeth herself. Note that Elizabeth's Request #55 is only available in New Game Plus if you spared Ryoji, but you don't need to reopen Monad again — it will be open from the start (but won't be accessible until you can explore Tartarus freely).
In Persona 3 Portable, Request #55 becomes available in a regular playthrough upon defeating Reaper for Request #53. After turning in the quest, the Monad Depths become available and the player can accept Request #55 and #72.

- The word Monad is taken from Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz's theories, Monad being the spiritual equivalent to the atom in his postulates about the nature of the world. Another reference to the Monad is made in the earlier game Persona 2: Eternal Punishment with the Monado Mandala dungeon.
