{{Nihongo|'''AiAi'''|アイアイ}} is the main character in [[wikipedia:Super Monkey Ball (series)|''Super Monkey Ball'']]. He has appeared several times in the [[Sonic the Hedgehog series|''Sonic the Hedgehog'' series]], most notably in ''[[Sonic Riders]]'', ''[[Sega Superstars Tennis]]'', ''[[Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing]]'', and ''[[Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed]]''. He is voiced by Kaoru Morota.
[[File:Aiai 1.jpg|thumb|left|AiAi in ''[[Sonic Riders]]''.]]
AiAi has similar traits to a Spider Monkey. Although his tail is short and stubby, he does have an orange shirt with the letter A on it (possibly for AiAi). He has dotted eyes, a small scruff of hair, and rounded ears that stick out of his head. In ''Super Monkey Ball: Touch and Roll'', his look was modified. Also, In ''Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz'' and ''Sega Superstar Tennis'', his look was updated, giving him a blue backpack, red oval shaped cheeks, a cat-like smile and a much sweeter look all in all.
==Game appearances==
===''Sega Superstars''===
AiAi appears in ''[[Sega Superstars]]'' with a minigame based on his own series of games where the player has to use their own body to move him around and get to the end in time, like his own games.
===''Sonic Riders''===
AiAi appears in ''[[Sonic Riders]]'' as an unlockable character. Oddly enough, he is a Power-type character, and as such, pushes lighter characters around easily. However, due to his small posture, he is easily pushed around just as much.
===''Sega Superstars Tennis''===
He reappears in ''[[Sega Superstars Tennis]]'' Tennis with other [[Sega]] Superstars like [[NiGHTS]] and [[Ulala]]. In this game and from now on, he has his updated appearance.
===''Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing''===
AiAi once again appears in ''[[Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing]]'' driving a racer called the [[Blazing Banana]] which is modeled after his favorite obsession: Bananas. his [[All-Star Move]] has him rolling around in his monkey ball with friends while running over anyone that gets in his way.
===''Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed''===
The cheeky little monkey appears in ''[[Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed]]'' again driving his vehicle from the previous game, but redesigned to look more like a conventional race car, like a dragster. For transformations, the car loses its wheels and sprouts banana-like structures to become a boat. Then it uses the same banana structures, but they stick from the bottom of the vehicle in a upside-down 'V' and reveals a booster to make it a jet.
==Other game appearances==
===''Sonic Forces''===
A costume of AiAi is unlockable in the game with the bonus edition of ''[[Sonic Forces]]''.
[[File:Distracted driving.jpg|thumb|right|190px|AiAi in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing]]
AiAi is a monkey who loves bananas. He is usually absent-minded, always thinking that every time he eats a banana, it was really delicious. AiAi deeply cares for his wife [[MeeMee]], his son Baby, and friend Gongon. Despite being absent-minded at times, he is very kind and very brave, going as far as exploring the inside of a volcano on his home island of Monkey Island.
==In other media==
===Archie Comics===
[[File:Aiai Archie.png|thumb|left|AiAi in the [[Archie Comics]].]]
In the [[Archie Comics]], Aiai appeared in [[Archie Sonic Universe Issue 45|''Sonic Universe'' #45]] as one of the racers in the story. [[Doctor Eggman (In Another Time, In Another Place)|Doctor Eggman]] had plans of conquering his world and taking [[Super Monkey Ball|Jungle Island]]s' banana horde for a lifetime supply of smoothies.
[[File:Mcdsega.jpg|thumb|180px|AiAi included in the Sonic 2003 Happy Meal toys.]]
In the 2003 set of [[Sonic the Hedgehog|Sonic]] Happy Meal [[McDonald's]] toys, Sega included a toy starring AiAi in a ''Super Monkey Ball'' themed, banana grabbing game.
