* T-virus infected zombie gorillas were a planned monster for ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'', and had been successfully modeled and programmed by the "1.5" edition, but they were cut from the released game.
** The concept would be revived in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil0''; originally, a giant killer monkey named "Wesker's Monster" was planned as a boss monster, but it was scrapped. Instead, the game featured the Eliminators; Progenitor-infected laboratory chimpanzees whose small stature, quick movement rate, leaping & grappling abilities, and surprising durability would see them become one of the more infamous members of [[DemonicSpiders/ResidentEvil the series']] DemonicSpiders.

* The film ''Film/{{Congo}}'' has a pack of hyper-territorial gorillas guarding the city of Zinj. The film goes out of it's way to mention that gorillas aren't normally aggressive, and that the hostile ones in the film have been specifically bred for violence. Also, they're [[ItCanThink smarter than normal gorillas]], capable of using tools, tactics, and ''teaching their kids ow to be guards.''

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', most gorilla mobs are are aggressive and will attack on sight. In a typical Blizzard manner, there are lots of {{Shout Out}}s: [[Film/KingKong a giant gorilla living on an island and holding a woman captive]], [[{{Congo}} a (robotic) gorilla called A-ME trained to communicate with humans]] and [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong gorilla mobs dropping barrels on death]].

Gorillas, orangutans, and sometimes chimpanzees: about the same size and shape as humans (normally), but tougher, hairier and generally meaner. Don't incite them to gorilla warfare, because the things they throw tend to hurt. They may also like to squeeze people to death. Or [[MetronomicManMashing pick them up and bash them to the ground]]. Sometimes they will even try to [[IAmAHumanitarian eat people]], despite real apes, save for chimps, being primarily herbivorous. They'll also often be shown [[AnimalsNotToScale towering over humans,]] something real-life apes would have a hard time doing (gorillas are rarely more than 168cm/5'6 tall).

* The Steel Mechorilla, fought at the top of Snowcap Mountain in ''{{Mother 3}}'', is a powerful [[{{Cyborg}} mechanical chimera]] whose hands have been replaced with wrecking balls. You might think it a good idea to [[ShockAndAwe strike it with PK Thunder]], since it's weak to electric attacks. [[TurnsRed Think again.]]

** Additionally, there are [[MixAndMatchCritters biological chimarae]] in the form of the Batangutan (an orangutan head with bat wings) and the Monkalrus (a walrus head on an orangutan's body). It's suggested that the same orangutans were used to create both creatures.
* Gorilla-type enemies are a RecurringElement in the ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' series, in the form of Gogols in the first and [[VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2 second]] mainline games, and Simius in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' It's also something of a RunningGag that a gigantic, ludicrously high-levelled unique BonusBoss of this type (with a name that translates to 'Redbeard'; 'Territorial Rotbart' of ''[=XC1=]'' and ''2'', and 'Hayreddin, the Territorial' of ''X'') patrols an early area of each game.

--> '''Peter''': Yes, I knew that eventually she'd stop tearing them in half. *the camera pans out to show the gorilla sitting next to a small mountain of dismembered kittens*
