Monkeys are minor foes in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, found in the level Scorch. They have escaped from Avalar Zoo and are found hanging from the trees and throwing coconuts at anyone that gets near them.

Hunter the Cheetah challenges Spyro by telling him to charge at the trees making them fall, letting Hunter catch them in a basket. Hunter rewards Spyro with an Orb for his efforts.


  • If Spyro is too fast the monkeys will hit the ground and simply jump up in the tree again, and if Spyro is too slow the monkey will throw a coconut at Hunter, making him start over.
