The Dash Hoop is a gadget that appears consistently throughout all the Ape Escape games. It is used to travel across areas much quicker than normal. It can also be used to climb steep slopes, defeat enemies and stun monkeys.


The Dash Hoop has some minor changes in its appearance throughout the series, however its consistent blue and white barber stripe pattern along with an outer golden ring remains the same with each installment.

Ape Escape 3Edit

Yumi is the only character throughout the series to possess a Dash Hoop with a drastically different appearance. Hers sports small deep blue hearts along where the supports of the rings are, located in all four points north, south, east and west of the center of the ring.
