Sumo Kong is a large Kong who is a member of the Kong boss group and the penultimate boss of Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. Sumo Kong has greenish brown fur and gray-blue shorts. A strike pattern appears around his right eye. Both his name and appearance are derived from a Japanese sport, sumo wrestling.
Sumo Kong is fought by Donkey Kong at the end of the Star Fruit Kingdom, on an asteroid field within space, where Earth can be seen in the background. The battle requires quick reactions from Donkey Kong. When Sumo Kong is about to attack Donkey Kong, he must punch the side where Sumo Kong's arm is lifted. After this, Sumo Kong tries to push Donkey Kong with his hand. The player must clap to have Donkey Kong dodge or duck from Sumo Kong's attacks. After Sumo Kong takes a few more hits, he is defeated, and Donkey Kong can move on to face the final boss, the Ghastly King.
Sumo Kong and the other Kong bosses appear once more in the ending, during the ceremony, where they honor Donkey Kong's victory over the Ghastly King.
