* Chimpanzees are capable of empathy to some extent despite being aggressive animals. In one episode of ''Escape to Chimp Eden,'' a chimp is released into a area enclosed by a electric fence. It touches the fence and gets shocked. What's really astounding is when it's friend is released into the area with it the first chimp repetitively keeps it from the fence, trying to herd it away from the fence whenever it gets close. ''It understood the fence would harm the other chimp and actively tried to protect it. ''

* ''Manga/SlamDunk'': No actual monkeys in the show, but the main character is described as a "redheaded monkey" and his captain's nickname is literally "Gori" (short for Gorilla). In fact, any excessively big and manly guy is referred to as a gorilla. Whenever Shohoku is chibified, they're usually portrayed as monkeys being led by a gorilla (except Rukawa whose a fox). An equally HotBlooded rival from another team is called "Wild Monkey", while the captain's rival from another different team (who also has big stature), is nicknamed "Boss Monkey".

Apes and monkeys make fiction "better" in more ways than just comedy: they can be used for drama or even nightmare fuel if you're not going for laughs. In these cases baboons and mandrills are big favorites because they're more menacing than, say, sifakas or chimps. Gorillas, of course, can be used either way because they're seriously {{badass}}--see GentleGiant and KillerGorilla. If you want long-suffering pathos, orangutans are a good choice.
