A Link to the Past
- Main article: Kiki
There are only two monkeys on Koholint Island; one of them Link has to watch out for, and it is sitting at the top of a tree near the south-western beach. This monkey will throw coconuts and bombs at Link as he tries to pass by or go near the tree. Simply running past will be good enough to dodge his attacks. Link can knock it out of its tree by dashing into it with the Pegasus Boots. When BowWow is following Link around, the dog can eat this pesky monkey.
The other monkey is named Kiki, and is the same one from A Link to the Past. Kiki can be found right by Kanalet Castle. If Link gives the monkey the Bananas, he creates a bridge allowing Link to get to the castle. The monkey also leaves behind the Stick, another item in the trading sequence.

Monkeys appear when Link tries to clear the Southern Swamp of poisonous waters. The monkeys tells Link that the Deku King captured a monkey and accused him of kidnapping his daughter. Once Link manages to navigate through the courtyard of the Deku Palace, he teaches Link the Sonata of Awakening, which is used to access the Woodfall Temple.
Oracle of Ages
A handful of monkeys make an appearance in the Forest of Time in Oracle of Ages. After Veran manages to possess Nayru, she begins to alter the flow of time, causing the majority of these monkeys to vanish. This is due to the disruption of the flow of time which causes them to become non-existent. However, later in the game, the proper flow of time is restored, and they are brought back into being.
Monkeys in Twilight Princess live in the Faron Woods. Some of the monkeys also bother the people of Ordon Village by stealing from them. In the Forest Temple, Link must free all the monkeys to get to the boss of the dungeon.
- In Link's Awakening, when BowWow is following Link around, he can take him to Toronbo Shores and BowWow will eat the pesky Monkey there.
- In Link's Awakening, Link can slash the coconuts that the Monkey throws at him for random goodies.
- "Monkeys are a common sight in Hyrule as well as Termina. Terminan monkeys are on friendly terms with Hylians, but the monkeys on Koholint Island have been known to toss coconuts at passers-by for no reason whatsoever." — (The Great Hyrule Encyclopedia).
