General description[]

An Ape in his cave.

The Ape is one of the three basic creatures of Black & White and it can be obtained at the beginning of the game. This creature is one of the smartest, having a rating of 9 points. This means that this creature learns things like miracles very fast. The Ape's weakness is his strength: he's very weak and slow at fights. Also the Ape grows really fast, as was discovered during the project C.R.E.E.D., when Newton, an Ape, who broke the record of growth, was close of reaching the maximum growth when he was only 5 years old. The ape is based off the Orangutan.
