Overview

The most common explanation of the name "Donkey Kong" is that it was created by Shigeru Miyamoto as a combination of the word "Kong" from King Kong, and "Donkey", a word which Miyamoto (with his loose understanding of English) believed was a general synonym for "stupid" (another version of the story said that he used the word Donkey to represent the stubborn aspect of the ape's personality). It is believed by many that the name "Donkey Kong" was the result of a typo on the original cabinet's art work for "Monkey Kong", but this has been denied by Miyamoto and others.

Sequels and spin-offs

Donkey Kong spawned two sequels, neither of which were as popular as the original arcade hit. In Donkey Kong Junior Donkey Kong was kidnapped by Mario and players had to control his son Donkey Kong Jr. to rescue him. In Donkey Kong 3 DK broke into a greenhouse and got chased out by Stanley the Bugman, who carried a spray can to protect his greenhouse from Donkey Kong's insects. In 1994, Nintendo produced a remake of the original game for the Game Boy (often dubbed "Donkey Kong '94" to distinguish it from the original) which contained 96 new stages (most which were puzzle-oriented) in addition to the original four from the Arcade game. Donkey Kong's and Pauline's respective appearances were updated for this game (DK now had a tie and Pauline was made into a brunette to set herself apart from Peach).. Donkey Kong Jr. ...

After that he went on hiatus until he appeared in Donkey Kong Country (in Japan, Super Donkey Kong). Donkey Kong Country was an entirely new DK franchise established by the British company Rareware which took the Donkey Kong premise in an entire new direction.

In Donkey Kong Country, DK was the hero and he and his sidekick Diddy Kong had to save his hoard of bananas from the thieving King K. Rool and his Kremling Krew. The game was an action sidescrolling title similar to the Mario games and was enormously popular for its graphics music and gameplay. Some sources, such as Nintendo Power, suggest that the Donkey Kong in the Country series was the son of Cranky Kong, the original Donkey Kong from the arcade game, which would equate him with Donkey Kong Junior. Other sources, including the manual of Donkey Kong Country1 and in-game dialogue from other games in the series, suggest that the Donkey Kong in Donkey Kong Country is Cranky's grandson and the son of Donkey Kong Junior. This is also contridicted by the in-game dialogue from Donkey Kong 64, as Cranky specifically calls DK his son. Rareware released an official statement some time ago, stating that Cranky is indeed the D.K. of the arcades and that the current Donkey Kong is the D.K. Jr. However, Nintendo hasn't made up their minds yet as to what it should be, and because they own the characters, it is ultimately their call.

Rool (now Kaptain K Rool) and had to get rescued by Diddy Kong and his girlfriend Dixie Kong, in a less cheery and a more dark themed game. In Donkey Kong Country 3 (in Japan, Super Donkey Kong 3) he and Diddy both got kidnapped and Dixie and her cousin Kiddy Kong had to save them in the final game of the series for the SNES.

Donkey Kong also appears in a number of other games such as Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, the Mario Party series, Mario Golf, Mario Tennis, and the two crossover games Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee.

In the cartoon show, he played the role of a potion concocting scientist. While the cartoon has little relevance to the games, for some strange reason, Cranky provided this same role in Donkey Kong 64, in which he would sell you potions that served as the method of teaching DK & crew new moves.

Other characters

Rambi the Rhinoceros was the very first animal buddy that appeared in Donkey Kong Country.

Enguarde the Swordfish has appeared in all of the games of the Donkey Kong Country trilogy and the Donkey Kong Land trilogy, with the exception of the original DKL. His moves include the swinging of his bill to knock out enemies and the superstab, first introduced in Donkey Kong Country 2.

Expresso the Ostrich has appeared in all versions of Donkey Kong Country, in Donkey Kong Land, and in the GBA port of Donkey Kong Country 2.

Winky the Frog was in all versions of Donkey Kong Country and also made a cameo in all versions of Donkey Kong Country 2. A giant tropical frog, Winky could leap high distances and knock out even the most stubborn of enemies with his powerful legs. Flibbits, the tropical frogs from Banjo-Kazooie, were based on Winky's design. Flibbits are frogs from the game Banjo-Kazooie. ...


Squawks the Parrot has been featured in many of the Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land games. In the first Donkey Kong Country, Squawks only held a flashlight in one level.

His main (and only) attack is spitting eggs, out of his mouth and through his beak, naturally. Squawks acted as a non-action guide character in Donkey Kong 64.


Rattly the Rattlesnake debuted in Donkey Kong Country 2 and would return in Donkey Kong Land 2. He had a super-charged jump that could send players to platforms or hidden barrel cannons high above in usually out-of-reach areas.


Squitter the Spider appeared in Donkey Kong Country 2, Donkey Kong Land 2, Donkey Kong Country 3, and Donkey Kong Land III. He could spin webs that could defeat enemies and build web platforms. Like most animal buddies of the series, Squitter is, in fact, very useful, and at times, players were forced into using him.


Clapper the Seal appeared in all versions of Donkey Kong Country 2 as well as Donkey Kong Land 2. While he couldn't be ridden like most animal buddies, by hitting his back he would blow cool air into a body of water, either returning boiling hot water to room temperature or freezing ice cold lakes.


Glimmer the Angler Fish was a non-ridable animal friend who appeared in one stage in Donkey Kong Country 2. Using his built-in light, he helped illuminate the interior of a dim sunken galleon.


Ellie the Elephant was featured in Donkey Kong Country 3, Donkey Kong Land III, and made an appearance in Donkey Konga. She had the ability to suck barrels towards her via her trunk. However, she had a rather stereotypical weakness: Ellie is afraid of mice. For the input device, see computer mouse. ...
