354px-Ape Escape 3 Specter

Specter is a white Albino monkey that preformed in monkey park in Ape Escape 1, 2 and 3. When he stumbled upon the Professor's peak point helmet and put it on, Specter became dangerous, and able to speak human language, he has been the direct cause of all most all problems and is the main antagonist of the Ape Escape series.


Specter is full of himself, arrogant, and above all, super intelligent. Specter has been able to produce mechas and crafts that would be almost impossible, such as creating his flaoting throne, the Battle Cruiser, monkey UFO's, and vvarious other robotics. Specter usually allows his mechs to fight for him, weakening every time they are defeated. As the player progresses, the mechs will become harder and harder to defeat, leading up to a final battle between the player and Specter, usually the hardest boss battle of all. Specter was at his strongest in the first Ape Escape, easily taking over the future and past with his monkies and brain washing Spikes friend Jake into being his slave. This was however ended by Spike in Specter Castle and later in Dimension X. Even though Specter has a hatred towards human (may be because of abuse from the park) he asked Spike about his old monkey trainer before battling Spike in Ape Escape 1.

In Ape Escape 2 Specter created the freaky monkey five, Specter had been weakened somewhat, thus needing more assistance.

In Ape Escape 3, Specter added Dr. Tomoki to the alliance, and was weakned quite a bit by the time of the Final battle.


Unlike the other regular Pipo Monkeys, Specter has white fur and a Bluish spikey hair-do. It is possible that he looks this way becuase he is Albino. He has a more of a human shaped head and face structure. Specter also wears his black cape that covers over his chest.

Ape Escape

In the beginning of Ape Escape Specter finds a prototype of the Professor's lost "Peak Point Helmet " and puts it on not knowing what it is able to do. The helmet gives Specter an incredible intellect and incredible powers, with which Specter uses to take command over and free the other monkeys from Monkey Park. Along with his army of monkeys, Specter hi-jacks the Proffesor's lab in order to send himself and his group of apes through time to alter history using the Professor's newest invention: The Time Machine. Spike and Jake were both originally going to the Lab to use the newly finished time machine. The Time Machine takes Spike, Jake, Specter, and the Pipo Monkeys all back in time along with two of the Gadgets that the Proffesor had created. The two gadgets were the Stun Club and the Time Net. Specter manages to use his powers to brainwash Jake and uses him for evil purposes.

Spike managed to travel through time to catch all the monkeys from the differant time periods, rescues Buzz and defeats and captures Specter who is returned back to the amusement park.

Possible absorbton abilities

Specters helmet may be the cause of some of his powers, its possible that the energy from the time machine gave Specter his Teleportation abilties and energy attacks. It is unknown where his phsycic attacks come from, but one may be able to guess that his telekinnected power came from the exporusre to the raw Time machine energy.
