The Ape is the titular protagonist of the beat 'em up game APE OUT. It appears as an Assist character in Fraymakers.

Character description

In APE OUT, players control a gorilla simply referred to as the Ape, who is depicted as a purely orange figure in the shape of one. Each of the game's four different "discs" depicts the Ape encaged in a different scenario, including a testing facility, a tall city building, a military base, and a container ship. Pent up with rage and having a primal desire to escape captivity, the Ape breaks out of each cage and runs toward freedom while its armed captors attempt to shoot it down. The Ape is able to kill most of its captors with a single two-handed punch, and it can also grab captors to use a shield or throw to their deaths. However, the Ape itself can also be easily killed with firearms.

In Fraymakers

The Ape's cut-in.

The Ape is one of the Assist characters in Fraymakers, and it will be among the twenty Assists available at the launch of its Early Access release. Its function is currently unknown.


The Ape's early function in Fraymakers.

  • For the Ape's function in Fraymakers, it was initially planned to charge forward and, on contact with an opponent, toss them forward with powerful knockback. However, this function is set to be tweaked due to similarities with those of Peppino and Rockman.
