All three main games are about a super intelligent EvilAlbino monkey named Specter who suddenly gains [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment super-intelligence]] through a hapless professor's [[HatOfPower intelligence-increasing helmet]], who proceeds to [[HilarityEnsues put said helmets on every other monkey in a monkey enclosure and teleport them all over the place]]. Your character's task is to...well, [[GottaCatchThemAll catch them all]].

Added DiffLines:

* MoneySpider: The Lousy Rats in the second game are a risky variation. They don't count for the trope if you defeat them instantly, but if you let them steal your coins and ''then'' beat them before they get away, they give all of the stolen coins back. And because of the way collected coins briefly increase in value if you collect enough in a row, you can get back ''much'' more money than what was stolen from you.

Added DiffLines:

* ReferenceOverdosed: The monkeys' names and descrptions are absolutely chock-full of references to different medias.


Added DiffLines:

** Still in the second game, one of the monkeys in Pirate Isle is called [[Literature/PeterPan Captain Ook]], whose description mentions he hates crocodiles.
** The second game has a fair few references to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': A monkey named Homer whose description reads "Mmmm... bananas.", a monkey named Mel who says "What a sideshow!" or Scratchy the monkey who is "itching to get you".

Added DiffLines:

* KillSat: The Satellite Laser in ''Million Monkeys''. Unlike most examples, the laser is fired from the ground and the satellite is for reflecting the beam to the target.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: ''Mesal Gear Solid''. Particularly, hearing ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}'' music in an ''Ape Escape'' game.

Added DiffLines:

*** The UK version of the game uses the word "Damn" quite frequently, especially Specter, who says it every single time he gets hit during his boss battle. The Professor also says that the monkeys are "raising hell" at one point.
** Before the final battle against Specter in ''Ape Escape 2'', Jimmy shouts [[ADateWithRosiePalms "I'm gonna spank you, monkey!"]]

Added DiffLines:

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: Whenever you get a new Gadget, it's often vitally important to the level immediately after it's introduced. For example, the AquaNet is introduced just before you have to swim in ''2''.

* MrFanservice: Specter. WhiteHairBlackHeart[=/=]EvilAlbino? Check. EvilGenius MadScientist? Check. [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Not really a human but not quite an animal either]]? Check. Evil army at his disposal that bows to his every will? Sits atop a bad ass flying throne? [[SharpDressedMan Looks good in a suit]]? Check. Creator/ChikaSakamoto's voice acting doesn't help matters much either.

All three main games are about a super intelligent EvilAlbino monkey named Specter who suddenly gains [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment super-intelligence]] through a hapless professor's [[HatOfPower intelligence-increasing helmet]], who proceeds to [[HilarityEnsues put said helmets on every other monkey in a monkey enclosure and teleport them all over the place]]. Your character's task is to...well, [[GottaCatchThemAll catch them all]]. In a possibly inadvertent ShoutOut, the second game's characters are all voiced by voice actors from ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}''. In the North American version, anyway.

Notable also in that the PAL versions of each game have a unique dub, with the Professor affecting a German accent and everyone else speaking in London children's show accents. Specter also sounds noticeably older than his North American counterpart.
