Donkey Kong


Universe: Donkey Kong

Debut:  Donkey Kong (1981)

Aliases: DK

Gender: M

Species: Gorilla

Affiliations: Kong family

Availability: Starting fighter

Background: DK has come a long way since the days of throwing barrels at plumbers and kidnapping princesses. At some point he did a complete 180 and became the vine-swinging hero we all love. He has impecible strength and a great sense of humor. He is fairly impulsive and unintelligent at times. He goes crazy for bananas. He has an extended family that is revealed in DK64. Though his closest friends and family include Diddy, Cranky, Funky and Candy Kongs.

Reasoning: One of the original playable characters and a confirmed veteran for SSB4.

Probability: CONFIRMED!

Thoughts: Apparently there is some dispute with DK fans about his appearance being shotty in SSB4. I thought his thick fur coat looks great personally. My only issue physically maybe where the fur meets his belly, but it is such a small oversight. I just hope his alternative textures aren’t just odd colored versions of himself. I HATED that. Heck just change the tint of his hair and the color of his tie, maybe give him some clothes to look like Funk Kong for 1 of them. One of them has to be with a yellow tie though like in DKC for player 2.
