Sumo Kong is a large gray ape who appears as one of the bosses in the game Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. His name, as well as his appearance, are derived from the Japanese fighting style and sport, sumo wrestling. Sumo Kong is the ruler of the Star Fruit Kingdom, the sixteenth kingdom Donkey Kong ventures through. The battle with Sumo Kong takes place in space on an asteroid field with Earth in the background. After defeating him, Donkey Kong can face the Ghastly King, the final boss of the game.
Sumo Kong appears once more at the end of game ceremony, along with the other Kongs faced in the game to honor Donkey Kong's victory over the Ghastly King.
