The sworn enemy of the " " and the Space Monkeys is Lord Nebula, an immensely powerful being who wants to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the universe]] and recreate it in his own image.

* [[spoiler: WeCanRebuildHim: In the pilot, Rhesus-1 is shown as a puddle of gore after evidently [[YouHaveFailedMe failing]] Nebula. But a later episode shows that, after his remains were spaced, someone else retrieved them and revived him.]]

** During the separation sequence for the ''Primate Avenger'', Spydor's lack of thumbs results in many a VisualPun, from him holding up a picture of thumb to wearing a metal thumb that rises up when he turns a little crank.

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: The Space Monkeys. We have a captain who is basically [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries James T. Kirk]] as a chimpanzee, a scheming kleptomaniacal spider-monkey prone to get-rich-quick schemes, a golden monkey who never quite grows entirely out of the arrogance that comes from being a martial arts master who used to be considered an incarnate goddess, an orangutan with a split personality that sets him between a stuffy professor and a Southern US-accented hick [[IncrediblyLamePun grease-monkey]], and a simple-minded gorilla with a massively destructive temper.

* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: A multi-level on in "Apes of Wrath": [[spoiler: Rhesus-2 sabotages the Holoboon Generator aboard the Primate Avenger in order to slip the Space Monkeys a device imprinted with his brainwave engrams, causing the holoboons to turn on the Space Monkeys. He did so in order to use the holoboons as an invincible army to help him turn against Lord Nebula. But the holoboons then turn on ''him'' under the command of Holoboon #3462-83B. And then Captain Simian manages to slip his brainwave engrams into the holoboon generator, allowing him to subvert the holoboons ''back'' from Holoboon #3462-83B's command.]]
