Ape Escape 2 Ukki Ukki Disc - Saru Buster Icon


The Saru Buster (サルバスター, lit. "Monkey Buster"), is a bonus Gadget in Ape Escape 2. Its appearance is similar to a blue version of the Water Net, and it can be obtained in every region that the game was released, though the method is different for Japanese players.

How to Get[]

Japan version:
To get the Saru Buster, you'll need to have a special disk called Saru Get You 2: Ukki Ukki Disk (サルゲッチュ2: ウッキウッキーディスク). This expansion disk was only released in Japan and is where the Saru Buster gets its name. Once obtained, you'll need to solve a few in-game slide puzzles. Upon completion, saving your game data to a Memory Card with a Saru Get You 2 file will unlock the Saru Buster for Hikaru and Kakeru.

While playing Saru Get You 2, open the Choose Gadget menu with the Select button, and while hovering over the Monkey Net, press R1Icon. The sound of a Gotcha Coin will play if successful. Repeat the process to turn it back into the Monkey Net.

International version:
In regions outside of Japan, the Saru Buster is unavailable for Jimmy, but can still be obtained by playing as Spike.

While playing Ape Escape 2, open the Choose Gadget menu with the Select button, and while hovering over the Monkey Net, press R1Icon. The sound of a Gotcha Coin will play if successful. Repeat the process to turn it back into the Monkey Net.

Usage[]

The Saru Buster is another type of Monkey Net. Pressing R3 will fire a net that catches monkeys, just like those fired from the Water Net while swimming, but now they can be used on land. This makes it significantly easier to catch monkeys.

Trivia[]

  • This is the first bonus Gadget in the series.
  • This is the first Gadget that doesn't have an official English name.
  • The Gadget seems to be a reference to the Mega Buster from the Mega Man franchise, being a blue arm cannon-like module that fires outwards, not to mention the "Buster" surname.
