Tuska wasn't that intelligent as a mortal, so she didn't get any knowledge as a God.
Loarnab was a Hydra, and hydras are generally not all that smart, so he got lots of power, but no brains.
Bandos' race was sentient enough to have an organized system of warriors and monks who protected a sleeping god. He got intelligence because he had intelligence.
Marimbo was a monkey. Monkeys are just as intelligent as humans in Gielinor, as seen in Monkey Madness and other monkey-related quests. Therefore, she got intelligence.

Ah, but there's the thing. The reason monkeys are intelligent on Gielinor is *because* of Marimbo. She had a kind of "awakening" to intelligence upon her ascension (she told the story during Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza), then as a god conferred intelligence upon the rest of her kind.
