MK is a noodle delivery boy and the successor of the Monkey King. When MK learns that the Demon Bull King was freed from his imprisonment, he, along with Mei, Pigsy, Tang, and Sandy, went on a quest to give the Golden Staff back to the Monkey King, in hopes that he can defeat the Demon Bull King again. However, when MK went to the Flaming Mountains with Mei and Pigsy, he was presumably killed by Princess Iron Fan. But when MK realized that he ended up in Flower Fruit Mountain, he meets Monkey King and was inspired by him to believe in himself and take the Golden Staff back. When MK returned to the city, he reunites with friends and celebrated with them after defeating the Demon Bull King, earning the title Monkie Kid.
A week later, MK continued to battle demons as well as facing difficult challenges. Although, when the Demon Bull King freed Lady Bone Demon from her tomb, MK teams up with Princess Iron Fan and Red Son to free DBK from Lady Bone Demon's control and became successful.
When the Spider Queen and the Spider-Bots started taking control of the civilians at New Year's, MK wasn't sure what to do after Monkey King got captured by her. However, when Red Son says he can find an antidote that can cure the citizens, MK and the rest of his team teamed up with him to travel to the Celestial Realm to and retrive the Celestial Artifacts.
After Monkey King left to go on vacation, MK began to wonder if the Monkey King picked the wrong successor after learning Lady Bone Demon's identity. Eventually, MK learned that the Spider Queen was being used as a pawn for Lady Bone Demon and attempted to fight her, but lost his powers as a result. However, after MK realized that Monkey King lied about going on vacation and was actually looking for a weapon that could defeat Lady Bone Demon the whole time, he and the others joined him on a quest to look for it so they can beat the Lady Bone Demon.
MK can be described as a typical teenage boy. He enjoys hanging out with his friends, playing videogames, and is often easily distracted when it comes to his job. More than anything, MK is a fanboy of the Monkey King, knowing everything of his background and heroism in his journey to the west. Upon gaining the Monkey King's Golden Staff, MK seeks to become hero like the Monkey King every way. However, he tends lose focus on the task at hand, and can be impatient when to comes to the Monkey King's training, wanting to learn action moves rather than learn a lesson.
Despite his shortcomings, MK is cares a lot about his friends and is willing to fight any foe to defend them.
He also has severe arachnophobia.

“Listen, every time we get in trouble, we turned to Monkey King, or our friends, or someone. They tell us a story and we find that smidge of motivation we need. Well…now we're on our own. It's just…you.”
During his entrapment in the Trigram Furnace, MK found himself hopeless until he saw his reflection, who told him that he's on his own and that he needed to figure a way out by himself. Even though he disagreed at first, MK took his reflection's advice and was able to escape from the furnace.
When the Lady Bone Demon attempted to trick MK into striking the furnace, his reflection frantically warned him to stop, causing MK to catch onto the ruse.
In "Duplicatnation", after working to hard and staying up all night for a long time, Tang revealed to MK that due to him having Monkey King's powers, he is able to create multiple versions of himself by using strains of his hair.
