Super Ape (1976) is a dub album produced and engineered by Lee "Scratch" Perry, credited to his studio band The Upsetters, often cited as the first reggae concept album.

In Jamaica, the album was released under the name Scratch the Super Ape in July 1976 on Perry's own Upsetter label. The Jamaican version had a different track order and a slightly different mix than the international version, that was released in August the same year on Island Records.
