Skull Island: The Birth of Kong
When the crew of the crashed Monarch V-22 Osprey were brought by Ato to the Iwi village, they were given Monkey Juice to treat their wounds. Its healing properties proved viable, as Evenji Medov, who had been mauled by a Death Jackal, made a relatively speedy recovery. Walter Riccio began to overindulge in the Monkey Juice, which made him highly unstable and caused him to receive hallucinogenic visions of Kong's past. Because of these, he began to believe he was chosen by Kong for a higher purpose. This led him on a pilgrimage which ended in him destroying the Iwi Wall with a seismic charge before being killed by Kong himself.
- Monarch's profile for the Leafwings mentions that their wings are seen as a valuable prize by the Iwi who grind it up into a psychotropic drug, though it is unconfirmed if this is referring to the Monkey Juice.
- A similar substance, the Black Wall Vine, was featured in the one-shot BOOM! Studios comic Kong: Gods of Skull Island, which was published in the same year as Skull Island: The Birth of Kong.
