The Demon Monkeys are a demonic race of hungry primates, and the main antagonists of the Android game, Temple Run.


The demonic monkeys appear after the explorer, the protagonist of the game, steals an ancient cursed idol from a temple. The game begins when the explorer rushes out of the temple with the monkeys chasing after him. The player must help the explorer manuever through the temple and past numerous obstacles.

One of the ways in which the explorer dies (when the player loses) is that the monkeys catch up with and eat him.
