Ape beasts are a type of Chaos Beast resembling an ape. Ape beasts make up a large part of the Trickster's army. Ape beasts are almost never seen by people in The City. They tend to inhabit only those areas controlled by pagans or the Trickster. They talk in the same broken pidgin English as the Pagans.

As the uniforms worn by ape beasts are the same as those worn by Constantine's human guards, it is speculated that they may originally have been humans as well. Although there is no other evidence beyond that, it is broadly accepted among the fans community. While rather slow due to their limp-like run, ApeBeasts can be devastating if they get close enough to Garrett. They are very skilled swordsmen to the extent that they are better swordsmen than Haunts. Luckily they flee after one overhead strike and have a low health count of 10.

StrategyEdit

The following should be kept in mind when confronting Ape beasts:

  • Sword – one overhead swing will make them flee, in which afterwards only two slashes are needed to kill them
  • Broadhead Arrow – can kill ape beasts from a distance with ease
  • Backstab - kills one with a single swing
  • Fire Arrow or Mines – usually takes only one Fire Arrow to kill an ape beast on any alertness level
  • Gas Arrow or Gas Mine – if discovered, it could be more effective and less dangerous to simply put the creatures out
  • Blackjack- Yes

AppearancesEdit

Differences between Thief and Thief IIEdit

In Thief: The Dark Project and Thief Gold, ape beasts have tails and swords (they look more like a monkey or a rat monkey rather than an ape), and some have uniforms. In Thief II: The Metal Age they no longer have tails, and instead of swords they carry blowpipes. Up close, they may use their claws to attack, as well.
