The Tibetan Macaque is a small Treasure Guardian in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties. It is the second-strongest of the macaques, and is slightly weaker than the Snow Monkey, but is stronger than the Lion-Tailed Macaque. The Tibetan Macaque can be found in the maps Yellow River, Himalayas, Silk Road, and Upper Himalayas.

They are generally found in groups of at least three, and up to 10, guarding a Treasure, and they can be obtained as a pet named Freitag the Pet Macaque, either as a single individual from an unguarded Treasure, or as a family from a medium guarded one.

It is a very social animal, active during the day, and living in multi-male and multi-female groups.
