Monkey Blue, (originally known as Blue Monkey in the US and UK versions of Ape Escape 2, and Ukki Blue in Japan and in Ape Academy (ウッキーブルー), is a member of The Freaky Monkey Five. He is the first boss in Ape Escape 2, and the second boss in Ape Escape 3.

He is skilled with motor vehicles such as his personal motorized unicycle. He's known to use a banana pistol, a banana gatling gun, and even dynamite bundles when in battle.


Blue is tall and slim, and wears a blue suit that varies depending on his two current main series appearances.


Blue Monkey as seen in Ape Escape 2.

In Ape Escape 2, Blue Monkey wore a blue one-piece outfit resembling a jumpsuit, with fingerless gloves, steel kneepads, and blue and silver sneakers. He wears a blue Pipo Helmet modified to cover one eye with a big white B emblem on the front. His Specter Badge is located on his belt, serving as the buckle.

In Ape Escape 3, Monkey Blue is seen wearing the same outfit, except modified to fit his Western outlaw theming. He now sports a long blue cape, fingered gloves, a cowboy hat (also serving as his Pipo Helmet), and an "X"-shaped ammunition bandolier across his chest. He is now skilled in gunmanship, sporting a banana-styled revolver, and also has several bundles of dynamite at his disposal. His Specter badge is still on his belt.


In his debut, Monkey Blue was portrayed as a highly confident speedster with the attitude of a teenager. Since then, he has matured considerably. Although he surely isn't the most powerful member of The Freaky Monkey Five, his intelligence and speed can make him a worthy opponent. He loves speed, and enjoys risky, possibly dangerous stunts.

Like the other Freaky Monkey Five members, his motif changes with each game or series. He's very self-confident and sure of himself. He has a massive crush on Pink Monkey, as he has a special pendant with a music box he carries with him at all times that contains a picture of her inside. He planned to ask her out on a date after defeating Kei and Yumi, but it's unlikely he ever went through with it, as he loses the battle against Kei and Yumi and is captured.

In SaruSaru Big Mission he gained feelings for Aki, and while she was shrunk he tried to treat her to a nice setup of cake, tea and flowers. When he was interrupted by the Lab warping into the room, he engaged in battle with the heroes.


Taking Vita-Z Bananas[]

Blue, along with four other chosen monkeys, were given Vita-Z Bananas by Specter. They formed the elite group The Freaky Monkey Five.

Ape Escape 2[]

The first of the group to be fought, Blue Monkey rides his motorized unicycle across the battlefield, which is a four-way crossing located high above the ground. Each of the four bridge lanes has a big traffic light. When the light changes from blue to yellow, the player must be cautious not to remain on the bridge for much longer, because once the light is red, the bridge will collapse, which will send the player falling to the ground.

Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed[]

He and the other Freaky Monkey Five appear in cameos as possible fans of the player character if unlocked by a great performance. Blue Monkey will be a fan if the player can win the Hoops 1 challenge and gives the player a free outfit.

Ape Escape 3[]

Blue West

Monkey Blue is fought second in Ape Escape 3, after Monkey White. He is now depicted as a Western outlaw, but he retains his motorized unicycle, which now has been outfitted with handlebars.

During his battle, Teleborgs dressed in Western attire proceed to pop out of the windows to shoot at you. This is handy in order to obtain Cookies or morph stock should you be low on either.

For the second and final phase of the battle, Monkey Blue will take control of a banana-themed Gatling gun, and the player must run up to him while periodically taking cover from the gunfire. Once you come close enough to Monkey Blue, he can be attacked until he is finally defeated. If the player takes too long to take him out here, the battle will revert to the prior phase, although Monkey Blue will have low enough health for him to only need to be knocked down once to re-enter the second phase.

The area itself takes place in an abandoned part of the Western levels; a "ghost town" of sorts. "Wanted" posters of him can be seen when the player enters the area.

Signature Move ("Gonna Getcha!" in US, "Bombs Away!" in EU): Racing around the stage quickly, Monkey Blue throws around several bundles of dynamite. They deal considerable damage, but they can also destroy the Teleborgs if they happen to be caught in the blasts.

When Kei/Yumi return to the TV Station after capturing him, Aki, recalling Monkey Blue's mumbling of the "rules of a Wild West gunman", wonders what said rules are.

Other Appearances[]

Ape Escape Academy/Ape Academy 2[]

Blue Monkey and the rest of the The Freaky Monkey Five act as "teachers" to the player's character.

He is the teacher for Junior Year 2, and gives the game Gran Turismonkey if all 3 Specter Coins are won.

In Ape Academy 2, he is the first boss and runs Traffic Safety Island. He needs 10 Bananas to be used. His game is "I Brake For Banana". He has a Brummie accent in this game and uses fixed quotes. These include:

"Heh, let's see if you can keep up."
"I can't let you ride right though my town."
"Aah, There's still loads to go."
"Fabulous, this one!"
"This'll surprise ya!"
"This'll do."
"Heh. I'm gonna win with this one."
"My decision is mine, y'know."
"Keep the foot on the pedal until you've won."
"You're quite a speedy little fella, ain't ya?"
"I never give up, son!"
"Not bad, son. Onto the next."
"Victory, it's just around the corner!"
"Um goin' strayt' to the winners circle!"
"I'm still the fastest monkey in town."

Saru Get You ~On Air~ 2nd[]

In the anime, Blue Monkey takes on a Indiana Jones -like appearance and is themed as an adventurer. He gains a whip for a weapon this time. He is the only character to slip English words and sayings into his speech from time to time.
