Trivia

Origin

Infernape is based on a monkey. It is also possible that he is based on Sun Wukong, the Chinese mythical "Monkey King". The gold elements in his design seem to indicate this, and his name can also be linked to Japanese interpretations of the character (e.g. Son Goku). Its appearance is similar to the Colobus Monkeys of Africa. Infernape is most likely based off the martial art Muay Thai which uses all the limbs.


Name origin

Goukazaru is a combination of 業火 gōka, hellfire or inferno, and 猿 saru, ape. Infernape is a combination of "inferno" and "ape". Its German name, Panferno, comes from Schimpanse and inferno. Its French name, Simiabraz, comes from simia, latin for monkey, and braise, ember.
