The Ape[1] (エイプー[2] Eipū?) is an enemy that appears in Sonic Advance 3. It is a mass-produced, monkey-like Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.



The Apes highly resemble the Coconuts and Kiki Badniks.


The Apes appear in Sunset Hill and Chaos Angel. In gameplay, they swing back and forth on columns, like palm trees and pillars. When the playable character approaches, they will begin dropping purple bombs. Should the playable character touch these bombs, they will take damage. Also, because the Apes constantly swing back and forth, they are quite difficult to hit with the Spin Jump.
