Makoto was the vizier of Banana City of Monkey Land during King Mungo XXXIII's absence. He came across a party of adventurers which included Vauldorf Springer, and he initially mistook Vauldorf for the missing monkey king but later realized that Vauldorf in fact carried the monkey god BONKERS within him. Makoto tasked Vauldorf and the party to find the Unbent Banana and returned it to Banana City before King Mungo XIII's evil half-brother Chee-Chee would find it. However, the adventuring party failed in this mission. Makoto's fate after the Yamatian Invasion remains unknown.
