Super Kong is a character similar to Donkey Kong that first appears in the Wii game Donkey Kong Country Returns. Super Kong only appears in the Super Guide mode, and his role is very similar to the Super Guide seen in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and the Cosmic Spirit in Super Mario Galaxy 2. If the player loses eight lives in a level, a Tutorial Pig appears and asks Donkey Kong if he would like to activate the Super Guide. If the player says yes, then Super Kong appears and completes the level for him.

While Super Kong travels throughout the level towards the goal, anything that he collects, such as bananas or other items, will not be counted towards the player's total. He does not access any of the secret paths that lead him into the hidden parts of the level (i.e. Bonus Levels).

Super Diddy Kong

All of his powers and abilities appear to be identical to Donkey Kong's abilities, including his Power, Speed, Defense, and Stamina. Like Donkey Kong, Super Kong has the ability to get Diddy Kong as a partner.

Physical appearance[edit]

Super Kong is an ape who resembles Donkey Kong, except with a few differences. Instead of having brown fur like Donkey Kong, he instead has white fur. He also has a blue tie instead of a red one like his counterpart.

Trivia[edit]

  • Super Kong may have been inspired by one of Donkey Kong's color schemes in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, with the exception of the color of their ties, with Donkey Kong's being red, and Super Kong's being blue. It has been mentioned that the choice for Super Kong's tie to be blue instead of red was caused by the sunset levels of the game, which have Donkey Kong in silhouette and, therefore, required Super Kong's tie, as the only thing shown in those levels, to be a different color to differentiate the two.
  • Super Kong resembles Eddie the Mean Old Yeti, a character from the Donkey Kong Country TV series.
