Chunky Kong, performing the Primate Punch

The Primate Punch (Sandwichium Knucklus) is one of Chunky Kong's special moves in Donkey Kong 64.

This move can be purchased from Cranky's Lab right after Chunky Kong is freed by Lanky Kong (provided Chunky has enough coins). It can be activated by pressing and holding the Z Button button while hitting the B Button button. The Primate Punch is one of the most powerful attacks in the game, capable of taking down most enemies (including some durable enemies, such as the Robokremling) with one hit, and is the key move for defeating King K. Rool. The attack can also be used to take out obstructions such as boxes and gates.
