Karate Kong is an elderly, yet powerful Kong and the sixth boss faced in the game Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.

Karate Kong is the ruler of the Pineapple Kingdom, the sixth kingdom Donkey Kong ventures through. Despite his age, Karate Kong is a skilled fighter, capable of doing powerful flying kicks and karate chops. Donkey Kong, however, still managed to defeat Karate Kong on the log raft they are battling on.

Karate Kong later appears at the end of game ceremony, along with the other Kongs faced in the game to honor Donkey Kong's victory against the Ghastly King.

He also appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker.
