The Pipotrons (ピポトロン), known as the Pipotron Brothers (ピポトロンブラザーズ) in Saru Get You ~On Air~ 2nd, and as the Apetrons in Ape Quest are a group of monkeys introduced in Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed. They are new mysterious monkeys with strange abilities.


Captured for Experiments[]

From an unspecified jungle, the Mystery Man kidnapped 3 monkeys for his experiment. They were named the "Pipotrons", and were created only to kidnap Helga's father to get his Disk.

The Pipotrons broke into Helga's house while she wasn't home and took her father away. After discovering that Helga's father didn't have the disk, they find out that the disk is in the trophy in the High-Tech Tournament. The Pipotrons are ordered to win the tournament and get the disk.

Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed[]

The Pipotrons join the tournament, and participate in various events. At the end of the tournament, the Pipotrons steal the trophy and discover the disk. The Pipotrons give it to a super computer virus called Grid Core, who wants to conquer the world. Once he has the disk, the Mystery Man decides that the regular Pipotrons deserve the same fate as the others. The new villain introduces the new Virus-Tech Tournament, where the characters are fighting for their very lives while getting closer to the villain's lair. The Pipotrons, along with the other characters, reach the new villain in the form of Grid Core and defeat him, turning the virtual world back to normal. The Pipotrons disappear with their whereabouts unknown.

Tron Red: He can strike really hard. Once he gets close enough to a target, he's untoucheable!

Tron Blue: His attacks are balanced. His Dash Hoop is super high speed!

Tron Yellow: His projectile attack is very strong! You should keep your distance when he's attacking!

Ape Escape 3[]

The Pipotrons are secret monkeys that can appear in Ape Escape 3. After beating the game once, entering a password on the title screen, can make one of the Pipotrons appear in a stage.

Ape Escape: Million Monkeys[]

The Pipotrons appears in Million Monkeys to help Specter's side.

Ape Escape Academy[]

The Pipotrons appear periodically within the last three grade stages to challenge the player's minigame skill. If they fail the Pipotron minigame, they fail the grade.

Ape Academy 2[]

The Pipotrons have their own cards to collect. They also appear randomly in the last three worlds; when this happens they must be fought, the player does not have the option to decline the card battle.

Other Appearances[]

Pipotron Red appears in Snow Kidz Racing as as AI-exclusive character, Pipotron Blue is the true champion of Specter Boxing, and Pipotron Yellow is a secret opponent in Ape Ping Pong. Of the three, only Pipotron Blue is playable as he is the character used in Specter Boxing's survival mode.

The Pipotrons are the antagonists of Ape Quest. Here, they are named the Apetrons.
