Instead he is a playable character in Coliseum Mode and Multiplayer mode. In the anime series, He is the son of a rich family and has a huge crush on Natsumi. He carries a picture of her with him and dreams about her nearly every time. He ultimately did a lot of heroic things in the anime to save Natsumi, when he saved Natsumi from the evil gone crazy Pink Monkey in Episode 36 Season 2 (protecting Natsumi from behind, and let Pink Monkey hit him instead).

Natsumi put him in the line to catch the monkeys, and he did so, going through quite a lot of fights. He has a little pet friend named Pipotchi. He appeared in a series of 3D-animated shorts called Rechu Getchu SaruGetChu, which was dubbed by Nicktoons later on.[citation needed] Jimmy also appeared in the short movie: Battle for the Golden Pipo Helm which was shown in theaters along with Beyblade The Movie in Summer 2002. He is the only character that wears a bandage on his nose. He is also probably the character that received the most work on, as of the Ape Escape cast members.

Pipotchi

Voiced by: Omi Minami (Japanese), Tara Sands (American), David Holt (UK)

Pipotchi (ピポッチ?) is Hikaru's pet Pipo Monkey. He wears a special Monkey Helmet, designed so that he remains calm and friendly instead of turning evil. The technology from the helmet was used for the Lethargy Laser so that Specter could happily take over as he pleased. Fortunately, Hikaru stopped it in time. He talks by saying Pipo which is the first part of his name. In Ape Escape 2, Pipotchi provides assistance to Hikaru by carrying him if he's short on a jump, and provides him with a cookie if he runs out of health. Pipotchi's name is a portmanteau of two words (Piposaru and the Japanese word "tomodatchi" meaning "friend"), that combine to create the phrase "friendly monkey helmet".

Akie

Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara (Japanese), Julie Nathanson (American), Maria Darling (UK)

Akie (アキエ?, Aki in the American games) is Sayaka and Satoru's aunt. She made her first appearance in Ape Escape 3. She, the Professor and Dr. Tomuki used to be partners in lab experiments. In Ape Escape: SaruSaru Big Mission, she is the hostage of Blue Monkey.

  • Peak Point Matix (Space)
  • Moon Base
  • Chop Rocket
  • Moon Arc Colony

Specter is a white albino monkey who was a preformer at Monkey Park. When the professor, built a prototype monkey helmet and lost it, Specter in curiosity put it on making him evil and smart freed his fellow monkeys and hijacked the lab. When Spike and Jake arrived, they got sucked in the time machine, (main cause of levitation + and snowtendo) which gave Specter lightning power. He built a repulse lift chair and revealed he could speak human language however he brainwashed Hiroki. Kakeru defeated specter and returned Hiroki to normal. Years later, Specter did the same thing again and constructed the fm5; however, Hikaru stopped Specter.

Specter is a fast and smart monkey, who in most games is a horrid and swearing with no mercy. In Ape Escape 3, he often uses a monkey themed robot and his throne and normally wears red pants and a black shredded cape.

The Freaky Monkey Five

Specter's top monkey warriors. Each of them has a very high intelligence (but not as high as Specter's) with their own personal quirks and traits. They are a parody of the Power Rangers/Super Sentai series.

Blue Monkey

Japanese Voices: Takahiro Sakurai (games), Tokuyoshi Kawashima (anime)
American Voices: Greg Abbey (AE2), Michael Gough (AE3+Academy)
UK Voices: Richard Pearce (AE2+Academy), Simon Greenall (AE3)

  • AE 2: Unicyclist
  • AE 3: Cowboy
  • AE Anime/SS Big Mission: Indiana Jones Like

Blue Monkey (ウッキーブルー Ukī Burū?) is a character from the Ape Escape (series) and a member of the Freaky Monkey Five. He makes his appearance in Ape Escape 2 as the first FMF member you fight. In Ape Escape 3, he is the second. He makes a cameo in P&P as a fan of the player if the player wins the Hoops 1 challenge, and gives the plaer a free outfit. He also stars in the anime wearing a Western outfit with a bag on his shoulder. It is theorized that-as shown in Ape Escape 2, his only powers involve speed and the use of an energy ring (which he uses to attack Hikaru and is not shown again in Ape Escape 3). The only particularly outstanding natural quality about him is his intelligence, which is a cut above most monkeys. Being a member of the FMF though, this is normal. Blue Monkey rides around on a motorized unicycle, which is extremely fast, and defeating him requires usage of the Super Hoop. In Ape Escape 3, it is revealed that Blue Monkey has a crush on Pink Monkey, as he carries around her picture with him at all times. In Ape Escape: SaruSaru Big Mission, he developed feelings for Aki. In the anime, his new attire recycles some parts from his Ape Escape 3 attire. He has a whip as a weapon, and he is the only character in the anime to speak English and other languages, more than just Japanese. (In Ape Escape Academy and in the series, his name is Ukki Blue). Blue Monkey has a close resemblance to Indiana Jones in the anime, and there were scenes in the anime episodes that resemble some scenes from the Indiana Jones Movie. In rank of strength, Blue Monkey is the fourth strongest in his group, only beating White Monkey. However, his speed helps him to keep up a higher level of difficulty.

Pink Monkey

Japanese Voices: Miyuki Matsushita (games) Tomoe Hanba (anime)
American Voices: Kathleen McInerney (AE2), Debi Derryberry (AE3+Academy), Anndi McAfee (AE3 singing voice)
UK Voices: Rachel Preece (AE2+3)

  • AE 2: Tropical Singer
  • AE 3: Genie Like Singer
  • AE Anime/SS Big Mission: Toddler/Child

Pink Monkey (ウッキーピンク Ukī Pinku?) is the only girl in the Freaky Monkey 5, and the first female villain in the Ape Escape (series). She has a tendency to go berserk when she doesn't get her way. She is a pop star in both Ape Escape 2 and 3, but she has tone deaf in the anime. In 2, when she sees Hikaru, she takes him as a fan member, and sings her new song,” Escape the Ape in You!!" which can be heard in the video section of the Entertainment Center until Hikaru whacks her. She begins to sob, which makes Hikaru sympathetic for her, until she initiates her dark side, “Dark" Pink Monkey which resembles Super Sonic by the hair. In Ape Escape 2, she is the only main villain to have two sections in her battle (not including Specter). She reappears in P&P as a fan and a Monkey Summon, and reprises her role as a Freaky Monkey Five member in Ape Escape 3, in which it's revealed that she hates Yellow. She stars in the Ape Escape anime wearing a dress and she is the shortest of the Freaky Monkey Five. She has a special wand that can change male clothes into female clothes, as well as give the wearer feminine mannerisms (As evidenced in episode 26 in series 2; shown by the way Kakeru moves his hands). Pink then embarrasses them by forcing them to pose girlishly then taking pictures of them with a camera, as she did to Kakeru. She also goes berserk in the anime, and takes down anyone who stands in Specter's way. (In Ape Escape Academy and in the series, her name is Ukki Pink). In rank of strength, she is actually second when compared to the other members. She has plenty of attacks, ranging from energy beams to flames shooting from her hand to force fields and levitation. She could easily be the first with Red, but still has more weakness than Red does.

Red Monkey

Japanese Voices: Daisuke Gōri (games), Hideyuki Umezu (anime)
American Voices: Greg Abbey (AE2), Gregg Berger (AE3+Academy)
UK Voices: Jonathan Keeble (AE2+3, Academy)

  • AE 2: Wrestler
  • AE 3: Martial Artist
  • AE Anime/SS Big Mission: Astronaut Like


Red Monkey (ウッキーレッド Ukī Reddo?) is the strongest member of the Freaky Monkey 5. He knows various fighting techniques, but it isn't hard to beat him in any of them. Marking his first appearance in Ape Escape 2, he kidnaps Pipotchi for the Lethargy Laser. Hikaru pursued him to a dinosaur - filled island, and fought him. Due to strength of heart and coordination, Hikaru had conquered the final member of the FMF. He reappears in AE3 as a karate master, and is a fan you in P&P. He also appears as a summon. In Ape Escape Academy, he teaches the monkeys. In the anime series, he is wearing a jetpack, wearing his eyes vision goggles, and wears a weird red coat, which looks like it is from Trigun. As previously mentioned, Red Monkey's powers include super strength and speaking (as is for all members of the FMF). He also is proficient in many types of fighting, and can use flatulence to stun his foes. (In Ape Escape Academy, his name is Ukki Red). In rank of strength (meaning not just physical strength), he is still first but could easily become second to Pink Monkey. His physique allows him to easily strike at an opponent and he has plenty of moves ranging from martial arts to wrestling and boxing.

White Monkey

Japanese Voices: Kenichi Ogata (AE2+3), Tomohiro Nishimura (anime)
American Voices: Gary Littman (AE2), Phil Proctor (AE3+Academy)
UK Voices: Marc Silk (AE2+3 & Academy)

  • AE 2: Mecha Jimmy
  • AE 3: White Dragon
  • AE Anime/SS Big Mission: White Monkeyhead w/ Mecha Tail

White Monkey (ウッキーホワイト Ukī Howaito?) is the most intelligent member of the Freaky Monkey 5. He can build various robots, such as Mecha Hikaru and the White Dragon, that usually have at least one major weak spot. In 2, White Monkey gets his hands on Hikaru's data, and creates Mecha Jimmy/Hikaru, unto which White could control. However, Hikaru had managed to defeat Specter, & White foreshadows about their plan about Pipotchi's abduction and the "Lethargy Laser". He makes a cameo appearance as a fan in P&P, and returned as an FMF member in 3. However, instead of being the fourth to fight, he is the first. In Ape Escape anime, he is seen wearing all white, he has two springy cones on his head, and he rides on a flying saucer. He also has a special ray gun that can stop time. (In Ape Escape Academy, his name is Ukki White). In rank of strength, White Monkey is last.

Yellow Monkey

Japanese Voices: Shouto Kashii (games), Takuma Suzuki (anime)
American Voices: Jimmy Zoppi (AE2), Steve Blum (AE3+Academy)
UK Voices: David Holt (AE2+3 & Academy)

  • AE 2: Sumo Wreslter
  • AE 3: Ninja
  • AE Anime/SS Big Missin: Chef

Monkey Yellow (ウッキーイエロー Ukī Ierō?) is the extremely fat, as well as disturbing, member of the Freaky Monkey 5. He first appeared in Ape Escape 2. When he eats more Vita-Z bananas than he's supposed to, he can grow to sizes equal to that of a skyscraper's. When he did, Hikaru had to fight him by waiting for him to do a rush attack, then hitting him with the stun club. In P&P, he is referred through a fan letter, saying that he needs false teeth. He reappears in AE3 as a ninja, reprising his role as a Freaky Monkey Five member. In the Ape Escape anime, he is wearing as a chef and carries a giant fork with him. (This could be a reference to Final Fantasy IX's Quina Quen, a genderless creature much like Yellow Monkey a male who would love to be female).

Yellow Monkey is very strong, though nowhere near as strong as Red Monkey, and despite his size and build he is actually very swift. Yellow Monkey is one of the most interesting members of the FMF, as he is the only member whose body color is the same as in his name (excluding Pink and White) and his physical appearance has been changed so much that he's barely even noticeable as a monkey. This may be in part due to Vita-Z bananas, which seem to have increased his size greatly. This is revealed when you defeat his giant form in the second game, and he is shrunk to the point where he's almost smaller than Pipotchi. Though it's revealed that Yellow Monkey is a male, it should be noted that he has an extremely feminine voice. In Ape Escape Academy, his name is Ukki Yellow. In rank of strength, Yellow Monkey lies within the range of third strongest. His different styles of fighting help keep a battle going, but he doesn't have as many attacks as Pink or Red.

The Other Monkeys

These Monkeys have never been a major enemy, but are still unhelpful to the heroes of the series.

Pipo Monkeys

American Voices: Eric Bauza (cartoon)
Japanese Voices: Fushigi Yamada, Kikumi Umeda, Shinichi Namiki (anime)

Pipo Monkeys (ピポサル Piposaru?) is the generic term for the regular monkeys that are caught by Spike, Jimmy, or any other character with a net. They are named after the Peak Point helmets they wear ('Pipo' being an abbreviation of 'Peak Point'). Their personality, behaviour and skills can often be determined by the colour of their pants. There are 7 types of Pipo Monkeys: yellow, light blue, blue, black, white, green and red. Sometimes, they are described as unknown, if they are wearing something that is not a pair of coloured shorts, making them stand out. Examples include Pipo Monkeys wearing Super hero costumes. Sometimes they could be playable. In the games, they make various monkey noises, while in the anime and cartoon series, they frequently use the word, 'uki' (ウキ?), the Japanese word for 'ook'. They also feature in Metal Gear Solid 3 in a mode called 'Snake vs Ape'.

Spork, Shimmy, Dark Master, Ape Ratchet, etc.

In Ape Escape 3, after completing the main game, players were able to purchase secret codes from the game's stores. Although these monkeys are like Pipo Monkeys in almost every way, their uniqueness deserves a separate entry. The monkeys listed in the title are monkeys that parody characters established in Sony's published works. While Spork and Shimmy parody the previous heroes Kakeru and Hikaru in the Ape Escape franchise, Dark Master and Ape Ratchet parody the Dark Genie or Seda and Ratchet from Dark Cloud and Ratchet and Clank. A monkey with Spike's appearance also appears in the anime, who acts like Spike and uses a net that turns anything caught in it into stone.
