Evil Demon Monkeys (or devil monkeys) are the main antagonists of the game Temple Run and its sequel, Temple Run 2. They chase the player in their quest to retrieve the golden idol. The Evil Demon Monkeys have black fur, long teeth, and a skull for a head. These vicious creatures can be seen whenever the player character trips; they will also subsequently consume the character after death.
In the original Temple Run, there are three small evil demon monkeys, who are in active pursuit of the character throughout the course of the game. Their appearance is similar to that of normal monkeys except for their heads, which appear as an eerie looking skull with glowing green eyes. Demon Monkeys have long, forked tongues, as can be observed on one of the games's wallpapers. Demon Monkeys in the first game are also known for the high pitched noises they emit, however, in the sequel this noise has been altered, and sounds more similar to a roar.
Temple Run 2 Edit
In Temple Run 2, the three demon monkeys from the previous game have been replaced with one large monkey. This demon has thicker limbs than its counterparts, and is known to run on all fours much like a gorilla.
In recent release of Temple Run 2: Frozen Shadows, there are variations with white spiky hair. Other than the chasing one, some more may appear at crossroads and block either path. They are slightly smaller than the one that naturally chases the player. When riding the luge the player is shown skeletons of demon monkey frozen within the ice as an obstacle.
