* The folks behind TheDCU love this trope; in addition to the two examples above, there's also the late [[Comicbook/DoomPatrol Monsieur Mallah]], [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot a superintelligent machine-gun-toting communist revolutionary homosexual French-speaking gorilla]] (seriously), the muscle (and lover) of the also deceased [[BrainInAJar Brain]]. Coincidentally, Grodd killed both of them in ''ComicBook/SalvationRun''.

* Gorilla Grodd from TheDCU is probably the most archetypal example of this trope, because of his utter disdain for humanity, psychopathic nature and plots to make gorillas the dominant species on Earth. Do NOT [[IAmNotWeasel call him a monkey]], though -- unless [[BerserkButton you really want to make him mad]]. And he hates bananas.

* Nonhuman primates in general are extremely dangerous animals. Chimpanzees take the cake, having killed quite a few people, even in the wild. [[EatsBabies We would rather no go into too much detail there]].
** Baboons can also be extremely dangerous, either when defending territory or raiding human settlements to steal food. The fact that some species travel in [[ZergRush groups of over a hundred]] helps.
** Averted with gorillas, who are generally docile and peaceful despite being more menacing in their appearance. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Harm them or their families, however, and you will soon learn why they have no natural predators]].

These monkeys are used as signs that something bad is about to go down. Because of their similarities to humans, a superintelligent ape is going to suffer from an inherent sibling rivalry with the human race, and want to either wipe it out or subdue it. Often, in series which feature anthropomorphic animals, apes and monkeys will play the bad guys.
