There are four different types of Ninjapes: Black, Blue, Green and Red. Black Ninjapes seem to be the primary warriors of the organization, rushing straight at Donkey Kong and attacking him with swords. They will jump high into the air, and then shoot themselves at the heroic ape. Fortunately, before they shoot towards Donkey Kong, they will pause for a moment. If Donkey Kong uses the Sound Wave Attack while they are in the air, lightning will strike them, stunning them and allowing Donkey Kong to attack them.
Green Ninjapes are more cowardly. They will simply throw shurikens at Donkey Kong from a distance, and run away when he gets too close. Luckily, Donkey Kong is much faster than them, so he can easily catch up with them.
Blue Ninjapes appear most often when Donkey Kong is going through the air with a Helibird. They will throw shurikens at Donkey Kong, then disappear when he gets too close.
Red Ninjapes are invulnerable, and sit on Fire Pig Poppos, and Kiba Pig Poppos. When the Hawgs are attacked, they disappear. These are unattackable and do not affect Donkey Kong. They also appear on cannons, and likewise, they escape when DK gets near.
Finally, black Ninjapes appear in the Cactus King and Ghastly King levels of the game, in different locations.
