Vitamin Ape is a Quest and Merchant (formerly Information) NPC in Hybrid Animals. He also was the very first NPC in the game.
He now resides in a black tent behind Yandi.
Vitamin Ape's hybrid components can be clearly seen as the green long mass over his head, the facial expression and the orange-brownish body from the carrot part, and the huge arms and overall body shape as the gorilla part.
When he was still in the early game versions, Vitamin Ape had a single torch to his right and a short Stone Path leading to the pedestal (where the player would spawn in early versions of the game). He used to be located in the place of the sign below Gumpy Pug's Red Shack.
The sign used to read as: "If you play Hybrid Animals on Wednesdays, you can try all premium creatures for free!", but has been replaced with another one which now reads: "Welcome to Hybrid Animals!" due to the removal of Wednesdayzzz. In version 200291, he was added back to Northwest of Yandi, not as an Info-Giver but as a merchant... And his final place was established within Yandi as of the current version, his black tent replacing the Blue Tent.
When interacted with, all NPCs talk to you with an automated dialogue before giving you the option to buy or sell (Except in this case where the NPC would have simply given information).
- Who dares disturb the great Vitamin Ape?
- [Who are you?] I am Vitamin Ape, keep of all the world's secrets!
- [What are you?] I am half Carrot, half Gorilla.
- [Tell me a secret] Certainly.
- If you play Hybrid Animals on Wednesdays...
- You can test out all premium animals... for free!
- [Tell me another secret] I have no new secrets for now.
