The Gorilla Alien is a part of the Aliens toy line produced by Kenner Products. The Alien was a variant of Xenomorph that was the product of a Facehugger impregnating a tetrabrachial (four armed) species of animal primate indigenous to the planet Zeevan where the Space Marines also encountered a Queen Gorilla Alien that had retained the tetrabrachial physiology (technically making it semi-hexabrachial because of the pair of smaller ventrally positioned arms featured on Xenomorph Queens) of the host species (whilst the lesser caste only had two arms).
A similar variety of Xenomorphs were also encountered by the Colonial Marines of the USS Sephora in a Weyland-Yutani research facility on Phobos in 2179. The Marines also encountered what appeared to be a Praetorian Gorilla Xenomorph.
- The Gorilla Alien toy was shipped with the Aliens: Space Marines mini-comic Aliens: Jungle Attack.
- NECA released the Gorilla Alien as part of a line of Kenner-inspired products in Series 10 of the Aliens figures.
- The Gorilla Alien featured in Aliens: Jungle Attack was also able to spit acid.
