Blood Ape is a monster found in the eighth Hero and Monster Collection set, Stewards of the Secret. It was first found in the Second Edition Conversion Kit.

Description

Found in the densest jungles in the most forgotten corners of the world, blood apes can be differentiated from their gentler cousins by their savage disposition, extraordinary leaping ability, and their taste for human flesh. The most fearsome blood apes are called "Crimsonbacks", due to the red stripe of fur that grows down their backs. Crimsonbacks fly into a savage fury when wounded, so it is best to defeat them quickly when confronted by them.
