Added DiffLines:

* Although Venusians are an intelligent, cooperative and developed people in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' this doesn't change the fact that they are two and a half meter tall war-like ape men.

* Subverted in Disney's ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'': Kerchak is a very aggressive silverback, but he's just [[PapaWolf overprotective of his family]]. He's much LighterAndSofter than his book counterpart, who was the one killing Tarzan's father...
** That was because [[CompositeCharacter his personality is based on a much more passive ape from the books, named Tublat]].
** The whole movie averts this when it comes to gorillas - in the original ''Literature/{{Tarzan}}'', gorillas are AlwaysChaoticEvil while the fictional Mangani are the apes who raise Tarzan (and even they are rather aggressive and violent). This was generally considered AdaptationDistillation by all but the staunchest Burroughs purists thanks to ScienceMarchesOn.

* The HPLovecraft short story ''Facts Concerning The Late Arthur Jermyn'' mentions that one of Jermyns ancestors, a circus performer who's act consisted of a mock boxing match against a gorilla, was brutally killed by it after he had a breakdown and assaulted it after it accidently punched him too hard during practice.

* The Beast Titan, from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. At [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever 17 meters]] tall, it towers over regular Titans and its CreepilyLongArms give it not only reach but compliment its ImprobableAimingSkills. It doesn't help that it is also exceptionally cruel, with [[spoiler:a brilliant mind and possibly the ability to transform human victims into]] Titans it commands. It is [[{{Understatement}} very bad]] news, and causes a battle-hardened veteran to have a FreakOut just by [[spoiler:speaking to him]].
* Shoukaku from ''Manga/{{Gintama}}''. Yeah, he is in fact an alien gorilla who [[spoiler: is the 4th captain of Harusame and deffies Katsura in a combat]].

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 may 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 being primarily herbivorous.

** Chimps also often eat meat (although their primary food is still fruit), while gorillas eat almost exclusively fruit and other plant material. There's a reason Jane Goodall locked her baby in a cage when studying them.
