Monkey Blue, (originally known as Blue Monkey in the American and Europe verisons of Ape Escape 2, and Ukki Blue in Japan and in Ape Acadamy) (ウッキーブルー), is a member of The Freaky Monkey Five. He is the first to be fought in Ape Escape 2, and is the second to be fought in Ape Escape 3.

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

Appearance Edit

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/theme changes with each game or series. He's confident and sure of himself. He has a massive crush on Monkey Pink, as seen in Ape Escape 3. Shown by a special music box he carries with him at all times that contains a picture of her inside. After beating Kei/Yumi he had desired to ask her out on a date, but it is never revealed if he ever went through with this, as he loses the battle against Kei/Yumi and is captured.

In SaruSaru Big Mission he developed feelings for Aki and while she was shrunk, he was trying to treat her to a nice dinner until he was interrupted. So it can be said, he is quite the romantic if given the chance.

Biography Edit

Taking Vita-Z Bananas Edit

Blue,, along with four other chosen monkeys, were given Vita-Z Bananas from Specter.

Ape Escape 2 Edit

The first of the group to be fought, Blue Monkey rides his motorized unicycle across the battlefield, which is a four-way crossing located several feet 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 if they remain on the bridge.

Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed Edit

He and the other Freaky Monkey Five appear as cameos as possible fans of the player character if unlocked because of a well 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 Edit

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.

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 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.

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.

Aki reveals when Kei/Yumi return to the TV Station after capturing him, that he mumbles about the rules of a Wild West gunman.

Other Appearances Edit

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:

Aah, There's still loads to go
