** ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' was based on ''Tarzan of the Apes'', but Disney did work the monkey trope into a wacky lather in the film, particularly with Tarzan's loud-mouthed female gorilla sidekick Terk, her not-too-bright buddies Flynt and Mungo, and the mischievous baby baboon Manu. On the other hand, some primate characters are completely serious (i.e. Kerchak, the stern silverback and Kala, Tarzan's loving foster mother) or are more threatening than funny (the baboon horde).

** Gorillas actually appear as background characters in ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}''. One tries to escape from its cage during a parade, and a whole family of them can be seen during the "Baby Mine" number. * The Barrel Full of Monkeys game monkeys make brief appearances in each ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' film (sometimes only during the credits), and they're usually used for quick, silly gags. Taken UpToEleven in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' with DEATH BY MONKEYS.

* EdenStudios once published ''Terra Primate'', an RPG not unlike their better-known ''AllFleshMustBeEaten'', but with apes instead of zombies. Most "Ape Worlds" (e.g. settings) were reminiscent of the ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' franchise in one way or the other.

* DoublySubverted in ''{{Runescape}}''. There's an island populated by intelligent monkeys but it's a DeathWorld to humans. Things get better when you get an item that turns you into a monkey.
