Guerrillas are Kong-like enemies found in the Forest Maze in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Their name is a pun on "gorilla" and "guerrilla warfare", which refers to a type of non-traditional combat where small, mobile parties attack larger, more organized militaries.

Aside from their chains and shackles, they appear visually identical to Donkey Kong, as referenced by their Psychopath. They also have a stronger near-identical counterpart, the Chained Kong.


Guerrillas are the strongest enemies in the Forest Maze, having powerful physical attacks at their disposal. Like most powerful enemies in the game (i.e. Reacher or Mastadoom), Guerrillas appear rarely, with only one appearing per battle.

An action course in one of the doors in Bowser's Keep has Mario avoiding the barrels thrown by Guerrillas, referencing Donkey Kong.

The Katakana spelling for "Donkey Kong"「ドンキーコング」but erroneously written so that it can be deceptively read like normal. Two of the kana in "Donkey Kong"「ドンキーコング」were swapped out for similar looking ones; the「ン」(n) is swapped for「ソ」(so) and the「コ」(ko) is swapped for「ユ」(yu).
