Bates was Monkey Fist's butler. Desperately loyal, Bates did his job thoroughly to please his master. After gaining mystical monkey power, Monkey Fist began training an army of monkey ninja warriors. Bates has since then not returned; and whether or not he is still employed by Monkey Fist remains to be confirmed. He is defeated in battle by Rufus after he and his owner Ron gain Mystical Monkey Powers of their own and is sent to prison where he presumably remains since he hasn't been seen since.
