Primate BuckarooEdit

A member of the infamous Freaky Monkey Five, Blue is the speediest one of the group and confident on abilities. With a huge crush on Pink Monkey, he decided to show off just to impress her. But, despite his speediness and confident attitude, he's a bit weak but will always try his best just to impress that special girl. Even carrying a music box of her with him on all times.

Blue Monkey is strolling around with his unicycle while talking with himself. He comments on how he's the least appreciated Monkey Five member by Specter. Stopping to check out his Pink music box, he comments on how Pink doesn't like him as much. Then he hears an explosion of sparkles in the horizon and thinks that Spike and his team are located there and quickly heads there, hoping to beat them and get the recognition he deserves.


Name: Lord Vorselon

Reason:While strolling in his unicycle, he notices Vorselon and thinks that he is an robot sent by Spike's team and rapidly cycles next to him. He then Blue to move out of his way, Blue then says who are you working for and he quickly comes back. He tells him that Blue's a friend of the Lombax and shoots his unicycle away, Blue then says that "you mess with my unicycle, you mess with me!"

Connection: Both villains work for the main antagonists of their games, both can throw explosions and shoot things, also, while Blue in AE3 is fought in the West which is in the 1880s, the Ratchet & Clank games take place in places similar to the future.

Ending: Blue returns to the West and contemplates on his adventures, wanting that robot destroyed for good. He then looks at his music box and says he did this all for her and Specter. Then he notices a small boy nearing his location, he then revs up his unicycle and blue energy starts coming out of him, the cutscene ends with Blue introducing himself to the unknown kid.


Blue is a speedy character with many tricks up his sleeve. Although he's not the best hitter, his speed says otherwise.
