Circus Kongs[1][2] are monkey robots that appear in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis and every subsequent game in the series, apart from Minis on the Move where they are replaced by Catapult Kongs. If any Mini Marios touch one, the Circus Kong will throw them up in the air. They will be thrown back and forth, and any additional Mini Marios will be stunned if they touch one. However, Circus Kongs can stop juggling the Mini Marios if another Mini Mario uses a Hammer or Fire Flower to stun them temporarily. They can also escape if a line of Pink Blocks is formed under the Mini Marios while they are in the air, or if they happen to land on a red girder. Circus Kongs are non-lethal enemies, and can only hurt Mini Marios if they are thrown into something harmful.

They are voiced by Grant Kirkhope in their first two appearances and Takashi Nagasako from Mini-Land Mayhem! onwards.
