The Ape-men are a race of humanoid simians that appeared in a Primal episode, Rage of the Ape-Men.


A race of simian humanoids, apart from their gorilla humanoid counterparts. The ape-men have their own society led by a ape shaman-like leader.

While their leader was a tall, slimmer, chimpanzee like individual. The spectators have a more Japanese macaque like appearance.

They appeared to have a violent culture and behaviors thanks to their love for the tournaments of warriors who will be the strongest to kill their last opponents for their honor. The winner would have to drink the sip of a black goo which transformed him into a much larger, monstrous creature.

When the champion almost beat Fang to death, Spear broke free and tried to fight the champion but was outmatched by him. So, Spear ran and climb the pillar where he drank the goo and transformed into his monstrous form to fight the ape champion. After ripping his arms off and brutally beats him to death with his own ripped arms, Spear began killing all of the spectators.

It is unknown if they were the only humanoid primates to exist in the series.
