* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, the ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** The
Imga are a race of sentient "great apes" from Valenwood, the forest homeland of the Bosmer (Wood Elves). They are known for their reverence to the Altmer (High Elves) and seek to emulate them in dress and, sometimes, even going as far to shave their fur. Ironically, the most famous Imga in the series' lore is Marukh, known as the "Monkey Prophet," who was the leader of the 1st Era Alessian Order. The Order was extremely human-supremacist and [[FantasticRacism extremely racist]] toward all races of Elves. They've [[TheUnseen yet to appear]] in the series (though the lore-friendly ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' [[GameMod Mod]], "Moonpath to Elsweyr", adds them in as {{Giant Mook}}s to the Altmeri [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]].
** The
Tang Mo are two monkey races, respectively a race of "monkey folk" who hail from Valenwood and the continent of [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]].Akavir]], far to the east of Tamriel. They are described as kind and brave, but also simple and mad. Despite this, they are capable of raising armies and have successfully defended themselves against their hostile and more aggressive neighbors (including the Kamal "[[EvilIsDeathlyCold Snow Demons]]" and the Tsaesci "[[SnakePeople Snake Vampires]]"). They've recently (relative to when ''[[InGameNovel Mysterious Akavir]]'' was written) allied themselves with the Ka Po' Tun "[[CatFolk Tiger Folk]]".

* A recurring villain (despite a brief HeelFaceTurn) in ''ItsWalky'' is Monkey Master, a HumongousMecha created by Head Alien. Monkey Master will take every opportunity to point out that he is in fact shaped more like an ape; at one point, [[GenkiGirl Robin]] wrote the word "Munky" all over him [[SuperSpeed in a split second]] just to goad him (or rather, at the time, [[GenderBender her]]).

This trope is named for a Website/{{Superdickery}}.com subpage. And yes, we know it ought to be "Everything's Better With Non-Human Primates" too. After all, everything's also better with ''apes'', who are technically not monkeys. The difference is actually very simple--monkeys have tails, while apes (including chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and humans) don't. [[InherentlyFunnyWords On the other hand the word "monkey" is simply funnier]] (unless you're addressing a certain [[Literature/{{Discworld}} librarian]]) There has been some controversy in recent years over the use of trained primates in film and television, so don't expect a lot of recent examples except, perhaps, computer-generated ones. Lemurs are often still lumped in with monkeys despite the fact that they're not monkeys either [[note]]Primates are classed by what kind of noses they have: monkeys and apes (including humans) are haplorhine (dry-nosed) primates, while lemurs, and their relatives the lorises and galagos are strepsirrhine (wet-nosed), primates.[[/note]] but media still has a ways to go before it can make this particular distinction.
