Dread Kong is a large, intimidating Kong, a member of the Kong boss group, and the king of the first world of Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, the Banana Kingdom. Dread Kong is fought on the treetops.

Dread Kong later appears in the end ceremony where him and the other Kong bosses celebrate Donkey Kong's victory over the Ghastly King.

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.

An unused trophy of Dread Kong appears in the game files for Super Smash Bros. Brawl.[1]
