Likes Kei VERY, very much, acting like a sumo wrestler, and also likes rubbing his BIG FAT belly constantly (non-stop, as he did in his fighting stances in both Ape Escape 2 and Ape Escape 3)


Hates "cutesy type" girls like Yumi, doesn't like being pushed down to be made weaker or inferior like how his encounter with Jimmy suggested

Appears in

Ape Escape 2 USA Ape Escape 3

Member of

Freaky Monkey Five

Monkey Yellow, known as Yellow Monkey in Ape Escape 2, and in Japan and Ape Escape Academy as Ukki Yellow (ウッキーイエロー, Ukī Iero) is the extremely fat, as well as the most disturbing, member of the Freaky Monkey Five.

Appearance Edit

Monkey Yellow wears nothing but a sumo garb.

In Ape Escape: SaruSaru Big Mission, Monkey Yellow wears a chef outfit.

Personality Edit

History Edit

Monkey Yellow was one the five chosen monkey to eat a Vita-Z Banana, giving them increased intelligence and power.

Ape Escape 2 Edit

He first appeared in Ape Escape 2 with a sumo wrestler motif. When he eats more Vita-Z bananas than he's supposed to, he can grow to sizes equal to that of a skyscraper's. When he did, Jimmy had to fight him by knocking his rotten teeth out with the stun club.

In AE2, he is portrayed as a sumo wrestler, who's battlefield is a wrestling ring with spikes protruding from the area around it. His attacks involve charging at the player (opening up the chance to knock him into the spikes with the Stun Club) and stomping the ground, causing objects to fall from the sky and crush the player. He swears revenge and runs away, later returning as a giant, which the player must defeat.

Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed Edit

In Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed, he is referred through a fan letter, saying that he needs false teeth.

Ape Escape 3 Edit

He reappears in AE3 again as a wrestler, but this time fighting ninja-style, reprising his role as a Freaky Monkey Five member.

Yellow Monkey is very strong, though nowhere near as strong as Red Monkey, and despite his size and build he is actually very swift. Yellow Monkey is one of the most interesting members of the FMF, as he is the only member whose body color is the same as in his name (excluding Pink and White) and his physical appearance has been changed so much that he's barely even noticeable as a monkey. This may be in part due to Vita-Z bananas, which seem to have increased his size greatly. This is revealed when you defeat his giant form in the second game, and he is shrunk to the point where he's almost smaller than Pipotchi. Though it's revealed that Yellow Monkey is a male, it should be noted that he has an extremely feminine voice in his first appearance. In Ape Escape Academy, his name is Ukki Yellow. In rank of strength, Yellow Monkey lies within the range of third strongest. His different styles of fighting help keep a battle going, but he doesn't have as many attacks as Pink or Red.

In AE3, he is portrayed as a sumo wrestler again, but with the abilities and agility of a ninja. His signature move is entitled Ninja Attack, in which he jumps to an area too high to reach even with the Sky Flyer and tosses throwing stars, some attached to ropes in which Kei or Yumi can climb as the Miracle Ninja, to the ground.

Trivia Edit

  • In the Ape Escape anime, he is dressed as a chef and carries a giant fork with him. This could be a reference to Final Fantasy IX's Quina Quen, a genderless creature much like Yellow Monkey a male who would love to be female.
