Haruka (ハルカ, Helga in the American games) 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. 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. In the Saru Get You ~On Air~ anime, she is a tech genius and Robot Battle Champion. Also in the anime, she has been seen wearing her Ape Escape: Million Monkeys attire and appears to develop a crush on Kakeru in Episode 6 of Season 2. 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. This is probably due to the fact that Helga is one of the only female characters (the other, being Yumi) that is flexible and athletic enough to use gadgets that are somehow most identical to that of Spike's. She is also a nice person. Helga is kind and helpful, but sometimes things will be harder for her if she feels angry. Her father is a friend of the Professor and she is the fifth member of Team Spike in Ape Escape: Million Monkeys. She is voiced by Sandy Fox (uncredited) in the American version of Ape Escape: Pumped & Primed.
