Can you name a specific ranked method that's monotonic, that fails the
other two? I've heard claims that Condorcet is monotonic, but I wonder if
it's true. If so, *which* Condorcet completion methods are monotonic? Are
there proofs for these methods being monotonic?

Such methods would be good candidates for testing a generalized definition
of Monotonicity, to make sure it agrees with the ranked-ballot definition.
