Dread Kong's appearance from an earlier version.
  • The name Dread Kong is derived from the dreadlocks he has in his hair.
  • In the pre-release version of Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, a villainous, gray-furred Donkey Kong with glowing, red pupils was fought instead of Dread Kong. It could have possibly been the same character as Dread Kong.
  • An unused trophy of Dread Kong appears in the game files for Super Smash Bros. Brawl.[1]
