Trivia: Ape Escape
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • No Export for You: Piposaru 2001, Million Monkeys, Piposaru Racer, and SaruSaru Big Mission were the only titles in the series to not get an English release. An Eyetoy entry in the series, Monkey Mania, never got an American release due to poor reception in Japan, Europe, and Australia. Ape Academy 2 similarly only got released in Europe and Japan. In an odd case, Pumped and Primed was not released in Europe.
    • Also the anime series, Saru Getchu -On Air-, has been out for in Japan for 4 years with no sign of an English release.
    • The Playstation Move reboot is available in America...but if you want a physical copy, you have to get it from Japan or Europe, because the American release is download-only. Same goes for Ape Quest, except Europe didn't get a physical version.
  • The Other Darrin
    • The games (at least, the American versions) are inconsistent with the voice actors. This is bad enough that even the PSP port of the original had different voice actors from the original PS1 version!
    • Solid Snake's guest appearance in Ape Escape 3 was voiced by Peter Lurie (who voiced Vulcan Raven in the original Metal Gear Solid) instead of his usual actor David Hayter.
  • What Could Have Been: The Nightmare Scenario Monkey Fable from the 2nd game was supposedly the original idea for the game.
