Planet of the Apes Wiki

Ajax was an evolved gorilla who appeared in War for the Planet of the Apes: Revelations.


War for the Planet of the Apes: Revelations[]

Ajax grew up in captivity at the San Francisco Zoo until he was freed in the Ape Rebellion. He later became a member of the Gorilla Guard, serving as Luca’s second-in-command. When a human warship arrived and opened fire on the apes on the bridge, Ajax fired a rocket launcher at the ship, forcing the humans to retreat. Ajax was hailed as a hero by the other apes, despite the deaths of six apes during the fighting, including ape army lieutenant Branch.

Ajax then led an assault on a human camp guarding the warship with three other gorillas, including Oak, alongside a troop of chimpanzees led by Branch. When the humans noticed them, they started shooting from the ground and ship, killing many apes. Ajax and Oak managed to fire their rocket launchers at the warship, damaging two of their main cannons. Ajax said their plan succeeded, but the main camp unloaded their machine guns on the troop killing all the chimpanzees on the front lines, including Branch. Ajax and the rest of the apes retreated managing after driving the ship farther away.[1]

Ajax was tasked with keeping the female and children apes while Caesar's Army fought Colonel McCullough's forces inside an abandoned building. When the humans set the building next door ablaze, worked to protect the other apes from the smoke and flames. Ajax later moved with the rest of the group to woods stood together with Luca and Red, another member of the Guard, as they crowded around gorilla named Winter to hide his white fur.

After they reached the woods, Luca left Ajax in charge of the group as they continued their journey. Ajax tried to convince Cornelia to ride one of the horses because she was sick not too long ago, but she refused claiming to be fine now. Ajax offered to have the gorillas carry her and Cornelia once again refused, displeasing Ajax. Ajax awoke to find a group of gorillas and chimps trying to disarm the other members of the Guard and fought back along with another gorilla named Ursus. Ajax was wounded and managed to escape while Ursus was killed in the fight.

Ajax fled back to the old ape village with two chimpanzees, Flint and Shell, pursuing him. The two chimps attacked him, but Ajax smashed Flint’s skull near the entrance of the village and before he died of his wounds he plunged a spear into Shell’s chest, killing him.


Ajax (Possibly)

Older Gorilla, possibly Ajax

  • In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, an older gorilla is seen by Luca's side when Malcolm is captured at the Ape Gate by the Gorilla Guard. He remains by Luca's side as they bring Malcolm to Caesar. Its possible this is Ajax.
