  • Malcolm and Caesar are very similar as they both have sons, both want peace between their people and are both married.
  • Ellie and Cornelia are both mothers or in Ellie's case she's Alexander's step-mother. Ellie once had a daughter who died during the Simian Flu outbreak.
  • Dreyfus and Carver can be considered counterparts to Koba, because they want all the apes dead while Koba wants all the humans dead.
  • Blue Eyes and Alexander are very similar because they both have troubled relationships with their fathers.
