Roy G. Biv, also formatted Roy G Biv, is a character who comes to Monstro City once a year in April for the occasion sharing his namesake, Roy G. Biv Day (although his day has not been noted since 2013 in The Daily Growl).
Users who honour Roy G. Biv often put rainbow coloured furniture in their room, and fill their room with bright colours.
His name is parodying R.O.Y.G.B.I.V., an acronym for the colours of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

The Daily Growl
Roary Scrawl of The Daily Growl, in which Biv debuted to the Moshi Monsters community, has interviewed him once and given fans the opportunity to name his sky-based tricks. It is unknown why 2009 did not document this holiday, but 2012's justification was likely due to / made up by Biv's appearance in the annual of such year. After 2013, the holiday was not noted most probably due to the franchise and Daily Growl's decline.
RS: What do you think of the latest competition?
RGB: Dude, I checked out everybody's rainbow rooms, and dude, they were rad. Jenny's rainbow sculpture had eyeballs, which were totally stellar. 06djenkinsc's room has a colorful corner that's boss maximum. Purplishstar used her glow bugs for a tubular twist.
RS: Gnarly. Since this is your holiday, would you pick the winners?
RGB: I think everybody who posted to the contest blog should win, that's how stoked I am.
RS: What an historic event for Monstro City! Shall we celebrate with lunch at the Gross-ery?
RGB: For sure. I was headed there next, bro, to get some chow. Thought I might check out what's shakin' over at EN-GEN first, though.
RS: Superb-a-tude. Let's go, bro.
Roy's first mention in the franchise and, naturally, on The Daily Growl. Demonstrates that Biv can create double rainbows, as evidenced by "as we walked to the Gross-ery, we saw a double rainbow".
Asks the readers to name Biv's tricks, and reveals that he comes to Monstro City purely to ensure that the city has rainbows all years round (though without rain, hence why rain is never seen on this holiday or hardly ever in Monstro City, for that matter). The nature of these tricks were revealed to be snow and skateboard-based (the trick names had this clause), likely a reference to the fact that Biv is a professional Rainbow Rider and Sky Surfer. Unofficial answers included:
Remarkably similar to 2010's post, though note that this one's naming scheme had the restriction of the full name including a colour, and states that Monstro City is brighter on this day. The above tricks were also included, interestingly identical; it is likely that this post was copied and a new naming scheme was tailored around the image that was already there.
Also similar to 2010's post, but merges the two naming schemes and uses a reformatted naming scheme image.
