This paper craft is designed by tenpepakura. The Monado contains Zanza's essence. When Arglas found it, Zanza took his control and the control of Bionis. It is told that the sword was originally used by the Bionis to battle against the Mechonis. When the battle was over the Monado disappeared.
Many hundreds of years later, Dickson found the Monado in the Valak Mountain, and with it, Shulk.
The Monado is a powerful energy blade that can grant special abilities to its wielder. The sword can be activated by anyone, at which point it will more-than-likely take full control of its wielder. The first known human wielder of the Monado, Dunban, was able to 'somewhat' control the sword and use it as a weapon against the Mechon at Sword Valley. In doing so he was able to thwart an attack against Colony 9. Due to sheer discipline and strength he could wield the blade, even though he could not fully control it. Thus, Dunban unknowingly sacrificed the use of his right arm for victory in the battle against the Mechons. He said to Shulk: "The next time will be your turn".
Shulk is the Heir of the Monado. He has dedicated his entire life to solving the secrets of the blade and thus is not only able to wield the blade without problems, but also able to unlock its great power. Shulk experiences this great power for the first time when he sees the future while holding the Monado in his Lab.
When the Mechons attack the Colony 9, Dunban, not yet recovered from his injuries, tries to use the Monado. When the Monado is flung out of Dunban's hand, Shulk picks up the Monado, shouting, "This time... is my time!" At this point, he gains the ability to predict the future (not by choice). Thanks to the Monado's foresight, Shulk avoids getting killed. However, the true extent of this ability is not yet unlocked.
