* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', this gets thrown around all the time by both humans and non-humans. What makes it funny is that some of Tagon's Toughs actually ''are'' genetically uplifted apes.

For an extra layer of hilarity, the lampshades come out when Kevyn (whose sister is engaged to one of said uplifted apes) uses the phrase "... or I'm a monkey's uncle!"
--> Considering who your sister's dating, technically...
--> Any offspring of such a union would be apes, not monkeys. I checked.

Despite this trope's use of the word "ape" as an insult, it should be noted that biologically, humans actually ''are'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hominidae a species of ape]] -- in fact, primate-conservation advocates have inverted this trope by likening apes to humans instead of the other way around. The argument goes that apes have intelligence similar to that of young children, so if you WouldntHurtAChild, you shouldn't hurt an ape either.

* ''SwordOfTheStars'', the nickname for humans is 'ape' or 'monkey'. This nickname was originally used by the Tarka, but was adopted by most major species -- including humanity itself. That said, [[IntelligentGerbil most of the species]] from ''Sword of the Stars'' have similar nicknames: Tarka are 'crocs' or 'lizards', Hivers are 'bugs' and Morrigi are 'crows'. The Liir probably have one too, but it's not mentioned. As for the Zuul, they have no name for themselves. Zuul is just what the other races call them, which is a Liir term derived from the word "Suul'ka", meaning "abominable" (any further epithets would probably be redundant).
