“Give them a big hand folks! Good evening, I'm Swanky Kong and you're tonight's contestants on my Bonanza! It's easy to play! Just pick a game and you're away!”
Swanky Kong is a member of the Kong Family, and a game show host. He is notable for being a flashy entrepreneur; in his first appearance, he wears a blue coat and has an afro hair style. In his second appearance, however, he wears a fancy suit with a matching cane, and his hair is covered by a bowler hat.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, he hosts a game show called Swanky's Bonus Bonanza. Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong can pay Swanky Banana Coins and attempt to answer trivia questions about the game. If they answer correctly, they are rewarded with extra lives. In the Game Boy Advance version, Swanky's role remains relatively the same, except now he has Candy Kong as his assistant on the show.
Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!
After Crocodile Isle was destroyed, Swanky decided to seek a new venture. In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Swanky hosts an on-the-road throwing contest in a circus tent called Swanky's Sideshow. Travelers can pay Swanky a certain number of Bear Coins to compete in a variety of throwing contests against Cranky Kong. If a contestant can best the elderly Kong, Swanky rewards them with Bananas and Bear Coins. In the Game Boy Advance version, Swanky opens up a virtual reality dome where Dixie Kong can compete in a gold star collecting minigame.
