** For countries where it isn't, ''it definitely should be.'' Especially for the larger primates. Zookeepers and wildlife experts assert that chimpanzees are among the most dangerous animals to work with. Programmed by evolution to have high levels of aggression and dominance, keeping one as a pet means that sooner or later the chimp will start challenging you in very subtle ways that an untrained person simply will not pick up. Then one day a switch in the monkeys' brain will get flipped and it will basically say to itself: "There's only room for one boss around here, ''and I'm pretty sure that I can take you.''

* Naturally, as they feature a lot in the Films, monkeys are all over ''[[VideoGame/LegoAdaptationGame Lego Indiana Jones]]''.



* The [[LegoAdaptationGame Lego adaptations]] of ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' and ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''. Both franchises had monkeys to begin with, but the Lego games, as full as they are of AffectionateParody and SillinessSwitch, decided everything was better with ''more'' monkeys. Trading bananas to monkeys so they'll give you a tool you need is a frequent game mechanic, and there are other gags involving monkeys.

Gorilla-themed Rangers appear in ''Gingaman''/''Lost Galaxy'', ''Go-Busters'', and ''Zyuohger'', and ''Gaoranger''/''Wild Force'' and ''Gekiranger''/''Jungle Fury'' also have gorilla mecha in them. ''Kakuranger''/''Mighty Morphin''' Season 3 also has an ape mecha and ''Shinkenger''/''Samurai'' has a monkey.



*** Even more telling, some type of primate tends to be one of the default HumongousMecha for most animal combinations of zords. Kakuranger had an ape, Gingaman, Gaoranger, Gekiranger, a gorilla, and Shinkenger had a monkey. Some type of primate is one of the default animal zords, along with Lion, Wolf, Shark, and a large Bird Of Prey.
