The Kong Family is the name given to the Kong relatives and friends of Donkey Kong. The patriarch of the family is Cranky Kong, the original Donkey Kong. In the Donkey Kong series of video games, members of the Kong Family are either playable characters or supporting characters that aid the main heroes on their journey. They seem to be in constant conflict with the Kremling Krew, an organization bent on stealing the family's Banana Hoard and destroying Donkey Kong Island.
Members of the Kong Family
Additionally, the villainous Manky Kongs were apparently members of the Kong Family but were kicked out for being too rowdy. They are also described as "Kong reject orangutans".
