* In ''Literature/TheEnemy'', the virus which has turned all humans over the age of fourteen (sixteen in the American editions) into bloodthirsty killers dubbed "sickos" also seems to affect monkeys and apes, humanity's closest relatives. At one point, the Holloway kids are attacked by monkeys which have escaped (or been released) from a zoo, resulting in them losing five members of their group.

This here is the opposite of EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys. KillerGorilla is a subtrope, where the primate in question is not just malicious but also big and strong.

** 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.

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.
