Jungle King Mask
An item from Paper Mario: The Origami King.
"A familiar-looking ape mask. A banana might round out the look."
First appearance Paper Mario: The Origami King (2020)

The Jungle King Mask is a special item in Paper Mario: The Origami King. It is a papier-mâché mask in the shape of Donkey Kong's head, found in the staff room of Shogun Studios alongside the Space Warrior Mask and Goomba Mask. When equipped, bongos and cuíca noises play as Mario imitates Donkey Kong's chest beating. Olivia and Bob-omb use words rhyming with "Kong" to describe it.

In order to sneak into Big Sho' Theater, Mario is prompted to use one of the masks and disguise as a Paper Macho Soldier. If the Jungle King Mask is chosen, he is quickly chased out and Olivia and Bob-omb suggest he use a different item. When Olivia is sad over Bob-omb's death in Breezy Tunnel, Mario can use the Jungle King Mask and imitate DK's chest beating again, although she remains silent. In both cases, the Goomba Mask must be used instead.
