** Gorilla Grodd, one of major [[ComicBook/TheFlas Flash]]'s villain, 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.

* Likewise, Ultra-Humanite sort of fits this trope, as he is a MadScientist inside an albino gorilla's body.
* The folks behind Franchise/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''.

* The Pak, in Larry Niven's ''Literature/KnownSpace'', are [[spoiler:the ancestors of mankind, and are known to Earthly science as ''Homo habilis'']]�young Pak look like somewhat leggy chimpanzees. Their life-cycle is odd, consisting of an animalistic "breeder" phase followed by eating a poisonous root, Tree of Life, that [[PowerUpgradingDeformation mutates]] them into Protectors, hyper-intelligent, super-strong [[EvilOldFolks sociopaths concerned only with the protection of their progeny]]. Most of them regard human beings as competitors�and therefore as appropriate targets for genocide.

* In ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials,'' Mrs. Coulter's dæmon is a handsome golden monkey with long, lustrous fur. Considering how your dæmon signifies your true self, that shows that Mrs. Coulter is ''very'' intelligent, cunning, and charming; then again he also likes to ''pull small creatures limb from limb'' when he's bored. [[CaptainObvious Mrs. Coulter is not good.]]

* In ''Series/{{Helix}}'', the hunt for lab monkeys infected with TheVirus is critical to the CDC team's effort to figure out how to contain the outbreak at a remote research base. Though their existence is at first vociferously denied by Arctic Biosystems staff, Dr. Boyle discovers infected macaques are the source of zoonotic transfer after she's attacked by an unusually intelligent and violent escaped specimen. Balleseros later finds the rest of the infected lab monkeys frozen outside the base.
