Specter is the main villain of the Ape Escape series and the focus of all the main series of games. He is an albino monkey that used to perform in a juggling act during his stay at Monkey Park.

During the events of Ape Escape, Specter accidentally gets a hold of an experimental helmet that boosts his intelligence; freeing the rest of the apes from the amusement park and using technology made by the professor (the time machine) to travel back in time.

Although he was defeated, Specter quickly took any chances he got (such as Ape Escape 2/3) to retry world domination in various ways, either through mass mind control or chopping the Earth in half. He is best known for his advanced Peak Point Helmet that he created himself off of the original model which also gives him super powers and his mechanized throne that he is rarely seen without.
