When a group of cool girl monsters shun the obsessively rule-bound Oblina, she transforms herself into Oblina the Rebel, breaking every rule she can. Eventually, Ickis braves a storm to get back his friend, the old Oblina.


During a windy day in the city streets, Oblina is inside the monster library reading a book called "Be Fonzie Cool", which she checks out. The librarian tells her that she is always the last monster to leave the library, never having fun with the other girls.

Oblina meets the other female monsters inside a space ship room having the time of their lives and reluctantly invites her over. They tell her that this party is rule free and relies on being cool, promptly kicking her out for they feel that she isn't cool enough for their party due to her cohesion to the rules and inability to understand the cool girl monsters' jargon.

Oblina returns to her dorm room and screams in frustration, waking Ickis and Krumm out of their sleep. Oblina asks her friends if she is cool, to which Ickis and Krumm responds that she isn't but don't care. So Oblina decides to convince them all that she is, in fact, cool.

The monster is later seen sneaking inside the book room searching in the file cabinet to find information of being cool, and finally comes across a paper for it. The next morning, at the Monster Academy, Oblina arrives in a casual matter and starts speaking flippantly to The Gromble. After class, she is affiliated to the female monsters' group and they make their way into the lunch room to get some lunch. At the lunch room, Oblina sits at Gromble's table to enjoy her lunch and Gromble arrives to inform the other students of the adverse weather condition above ground. He tells them that before they do their scares, they should learn their signals before returning home, for the bat will drop above their heads and they should return home immediately to circumvent this, even if it means not completing their scares. Oblina mocks Grombles warnings out loud and casually leaves his chair under his deference.

When the other monsters view the windy air, Krumm suggests that they should complete their tasks another day, and Oblina, flouting Gromble's orders to get Snorch'd, appears behind them and mocks them for attempting to rescind their own tasks. She leads the other female monsters with her to go scaring as Ickis and Krumm watch in disbelief.

At the Grimm Reapair shop, the female monsters scare away the workers out of the shop, and meanwhile, Gromble sends the bats out to fly to the city streets. When the female monsters see the bats, they return to the dump, leaving Oblina behind in the alley way. Ickis and Krumm desperately travel through the turbulent weather on a quest to look for their friend and as Oblina scares away every human in the streets, she is caught in a tornado and Ickis and Krumm get caught in it as well at an attempt to rescue her. They hop inside a car, which is thrown out of the tornado and crashes onto the asphalt. Oblina apologizes to her friends and Krumm tells her that she should just be herself instead of being someone she isn't.

At the monster library, Oblina checks out another book and joins the other female monsters inside the space ship room and parties with them.
