The Fire Ape (火猿 Kaen) is a species of fiery primate native to Area 7 and it is one of the many primates that make up the continent's "Monkey Restaurant".
It is a tall and lanky ape with sharp-looking facial features and a very pointy nose, but its most notable trait are the dazzling flames emanating from its body which gives it an almost mystical appearance. Its feet and hands are quite large and muscular, and it also has a very long tail.
The Fire Ape is a very aggressive fighter and always has an excited and frenzied look on its face. However, a member of this species was shown to be good friends with an Iai-Aye and also served as a brave ally that was willing to help the Four Heavenly Kings in their training.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Being a primate of the "Monkey Restaurant", this species is skilled in the monkey martial art of Enbu, a special style of combat only known to the primates of Area 7 and its skill in this martial art is so great that it is rank 9-Dan practitioner, just below the Assistant Masters. Having a capture level of 1120, the Fire Ape is a very powerful creature and has one of the highest capture levels in Area 7. The Fire Ape, as its name implies, has the ability to generate flames from its body; however, the full extent of this ability and its combat usage are never seen.
A Fire Ape is one of the many monkeys that are allies of the Iai-Aye who accompanies the Four Heavenly Kings, and is willing to help in their training to master Enbu. The Fire Monkey is paired off against Zebra and both appear quite excited to fight one another.
After the Heavenly Kings finally acquire PAIR, many of their monkey allies, including the Fire Ape, appear on 100G Mountain to congratulate them. The Kings and the monkeys then descend back down the mountain on Bambina's Flying Nimbutt and head for the Birth Cry Tree, where they are happily greeted by a gigantic gathering of now happy and free monkeys.
