* FanonDiscontinuity: Many deny that the sequels and/or remake exist. The reboot prequel series mostly managed to avert this, with ''Dawn'' and ''War'' in particular being seen as the only film to rival the original.

* CompleteMonster: [[ItsAllAboutMe Koba]] is a [[AbsoluteXenophobe xenophobic ape of the highest order]]. Initially loyal to Caesar, Koba is disgusted with the fact that Caesar would bring humans into their territory. After being told off by Caesar for the last time, Koba decides to betray his leader and take matters into his own hands. Displaying his callousness by murdering two helpless guards, Koba raids the armory of the human city, [[spoiler:returning to shoot Caesar and burn down his former home. Pinning the blame on the humans,]] Koba rallies the misguided apes into attacking San Francisco, slaughtering dozens of innocents. He doesn't tolerate being compared to Caesar: he demonstrates this by [[spoiler:[[KickTheDog cruelly tossing the young Ash to his death]]]] when he refuses to kill defenseless people in Caesar's name. Upon [[TyrantTakesTheHelm taking over the city]], Koba imposes his rule on both humans and apes alike, trapping the humans in cages, imprisoning the apes still loyal to Caesar in chains, and turning the rest into fanatically loyal soldiers who are still under the impression Caesar is dead. When finally confronted by Caesar, Koba tries to savagely beat him to death with a metal bar, proclaiming that he is the stronger ape. When defeated, [[VillainousBreakdown Koba snaps and starts gunning down his former comrades, even as Caesar is trying to help them]]. Even though Koba had an [[FreudianExcuse excuse]] in the form of [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil science-related torture]], Koba was far from the only ape to have been tortured, and yet none of the others turned out evil. [[spoiler:Caesar ultimately decides it's perfectly reasonable to drop the traitorous [[SeldomSeenSpecies bonobo]] to his death, stating that he is [[NoTrueScotsman "not ape."]]]] [[ItsAllAboutMe Selfish]] and brutal, Koba perfectly represented the savagery found in both humans and apes alike.
