Helga, known as Haruka in Japan (ハルカ) is a female character who first appears in Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed. She is one of the first usable female characters in the entire series along with Natalie and Casi. Her father is a friend of the Professor and she is the fifth member of Team Spike in Ape Escape: Million Monkeys.

Appearance Edit

Helga wears a black shirt with a pink flower on it, a orange stripped skirt, black socks, and brown shoes. She also wears a brown hat.


Helga is very a nice person. She is kind and helpful, but sometimes things will be harder for her if she feels angry.

Abilities Edit

Like Spike, she is very good with Gadgets.

Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed Edit

In Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed, she serves a significantly more important role in the story than most of the other characters in the game. She is the Hi-Tech Tournament's last Champion and also has a dark past.

Ape Escape: Million Monkeys Edit

Hakura is first seen as one of the people in the News along with the citizens. Later in the game, Spike must escort her to safety.

Saru Get You ~On Air~ Edit

In the Saru Get You ~On Air~ anime, she is a tech genius and Robot Battle Champion. She appears to develop a crush on Kakeru.

Trivia Edit

  • Even though she appears to may have romantic feelings for Spike in the anime, it is not clear whether she feels the same way about him in the games since she is usually only used by Natalie as a teaser to get Spike to like her.
