Ape Pirates are powerful Robo-Pirates from Rayman 2: The Great Escape, Rayman 2: Revolution, and Rayman DS. They are notable for being near-invincible. They also make a cameo appearance on a production line in the Electric Final race course in Rayman M and in Hoodlum Headquarters in Rayman 3.


In many ways, Ape Pirates seem like a typical first-mate pirate, comparable in apparel to Mr. Smee from Disney's Peter Pan. Ape Pirates are brainless and exist only to clobber intruders in their territory. They are short, stubby, and carry a hunchback. They are seen wearing a blue and white stripey shirt. They walk on all fours like a gorilla.

Battle Strategy

Ape Pirates attack in only one way: they charge suddenly, run over their foe, and run away. Unfortunately for them, their lack of intelligence does not stop them where their foe jumps, and so if somebody such as Rayman jumps right next to a cliff, the Ape Pirate is sure to fall a great distance and explode.

Another way to handle an Ape Pirate is by lobbing a plum at one's head, in a similar manner to the livingstones from the first Rayman game. This technique can be used to reach high ledges as well, as it immobilises the Ape Pirate, allowing his plum-encased head to be used as a platform.
