The Monkey Staff was a Shen Gong Wu that gave the user the ability to gain monkey-like qualities.
The Monkey Staff was a brown staff with a small monkey on top. It appeared to be made of wood (not including its bronze grip), yet it had strong durability in battles.
The Monkey Staff turned its users into beings with the similar appearance, strength, agility, and balance of a monkey. If it was used too long after the wielder called out its name then the user would turn into a monkey, and if left unchecked, the user would start thinking like a real monkey; his or her human memories would be erased until the staff was taken away.

It was revealed in "Tangled Web", where it was won in a showdown by Jack Spicer in a showdown against Kimiko Tohomiko and her Fist of Tebigong. He used the Monkey Staff for the majority of the episode, becoming more monkey-like as time passed. It was soon won back by Kimiko in a showdown for the Golden Tiger Claws.
In "Katnappe!", Kimiko used the Monkey Staff against Katnappe in the Mall of the World, but she used it as a bow staff instead of using it's proper powers.
In "Chameleon", it was used at first by Omi against Clay Bailey's Eye of Dashi during a training session to evade the lightning blast. It was seen among the Shen Gong Wu the Chameleon-Bot stole from the Xiaolin Temple disguised as Kimiko, and it was then used by the Chameleon-Bot to try to ward off Raimundo Pedrosa and Clay.
In "Royal Rumble", it was wagered by Jack Spicer in a showdown for the Sun Chi Lantern against Omi, but he ends up losing the showdown and losing the Monkey Staff as well.
In "Mala Mala Jong", Kimiko used it against Mala Mala Jong (this time using its power), but Mala Mala quickly snatched it away.
In "The Shard of Lightning", it was among the Shen Gong Wu that Jack and his robot double stole using the Shard of Lightning.
In "Pandatown", it was used by Jack to try to sneak into PandaBubba's mansion and take back his Shen Gong Wu. It was also given by Jack to the Dragons as a sign of trust when he told them he knew a way into the mansion, but it was actually a trap set up by him and Pandabubba.

In "The Last Temptation of Raimundo", it was given to Raimundo by Jack, but by the end of the episode, Jack had taken it back again.
In "The Year of the Green Monkey", it was used by Jack Spicer to steal the Tongue of Saiping from the Xiaolin Temple. It was then used along with the Tongue of Saiping to help him command the army of green monkeys. He wagered it in a showdown against Omi for the Changing Chopsticks, but soon lost it, and therefore lost the power over the monkeys.
In "Treasure of the Blind Swordsman", it was one of the Shen Gong Wu stolen by the outlaw-bots.
In "The Dream Stalker", it was used in battle by Jack Spicer against the Dragons to get the Shadow Slicer. It remained the only Shen Gong Wu in Jack's possession after the series ended.
