Cannon Kongs are monkey robots appearing in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars as enemies. They first appear in Runaway Warehouse. Similarly to Circus Kongs, Cannon Kongs cannot hurt the Mini toys directly. Instead, they suck the toys into their cannon-based body and blast them forward in the direction that they are facing. This makes them similar to cannons, though they do not change direction and cannot be manually timed. Characters can destroy crumbling blocks or stun Circus Kongs if they are shot through them.
