* {{Crossover}}: Appears as a MiniGame in the [=PS2=] versions of VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}''. The third ''Ape Escape'' game also has a [=minigame=] called ''Mesal Gear Solid'', which is basically ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' except shorter and more kid-friendly.

* AmusementParkOfDoom: Penultimate level of the first game.

* AmusementParkOfDoom: Penultimate Specter Land, the first half of the last non-boss level of the first game.



* DieChairDie

to:

* DieChairDieDieChairDie: A lot of destructible objects appear in the first game. Most drop the triangular currency of the game, or health cookies. Most apparent when you're piloting the tank and almost everything in sight can be destroyed.



* NintendoHard: Several instances throughout the series, but the last level of the first game is particularly JustForFun/{{egregious}}.

We're talking about bottomless pits everywhere, and things that just love to knock you into them placed every few feet. Get used to hearing Spike's "whooooooaaaaaa!" for the next several minutes.

** ''Pumped and Primed'' had a few elements of this. Specter's role as BigBad gets usurped by the Grid Core, a much more intimidating villain. Most of the intermission videos are lighthearted and wacky, but the ones for Helga detail her DarkAndTroubledPast, and the ones for the Pipotrons detail their creepy origins and their kidnapping of [[spoiler:Helga's father]].

* Yellowsnow: Apparently Denggoy the Monkey from the Snowy Mammoth level in the first game ate some. He's not exactly happy about it.

** The third game includes cheats the play has to input in the main menu and then load the game with the corresponding save that gave you the code. After that you will unlock different monkeys in different cameo clothing. Two of them are straight references to the first two games while one other is a reference to ''Ratchet & Clank''.

** Sort of. You have to crawl around to catch monkeys unawares, otherwise they'll run away and/or fire their weapons at you. But even then, it's entirely possible to catch most monkeys just by running around enough, especially if you abuse the hell out of the Super Hoop.

* 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''.

* WithThisHerring: Throughout the series, the protagonist usually has equipment that's mostly non-lethal (The [[SetSwordsToStun Stun-Club]] being their main tool in that regard) or are supped up versions of children's toys (one of which is flat out a slingshot. Granted, it's a slingshot that can shoot explosive ammo, but still.) That does not stop them from accomplishing such feats as beating flying fortresses, {{Giant Mecha}}s, or even [[spoiler: [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever giant, banana steroid fueled monkeys]]]] without much trouble.

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Jake, Kei, and the [=PlayStation=] Move protagonist are standouts here. Casi has green hair instead.
