Detective Chimp is a crime-solving chimpanzee with the ability to speak human languages.
Detective Chimp was the third to audition for a spot in the Teen Titans. He walked on stage and introduced himself, but Robin and Cyborg both glanced at each other with disapproval and refused. Robin pressed a button, summoning a boot to shoot the shocked chimp off the stage.
Detective Chimp has no special abilities except for his genius human intelligence which allows him to speak and converse in human languages. He also has the agility and physical ability of a chimp which is normally above physically fit humans, and is able to solve investigations due to being a detective.
