Implied Kong[edit]

Is this really a Kong?--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

No.... why is he on here? - Ultimatetoad

He is an implied Kong, but whether that is worthy of a category, I cannot say. -- Son of Suns

It is.

Re: Remake[edit]

Would he still be considered a Kong in light of the redesign? --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 21:31, July 19, 2019 (EDT)

No, not really. PumpkinheadGoomba.png Spooky Mario Fan MK8DX Dry Bones Icon.png 21:32, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
Thought not, I'll wait for an administrative response before I actually do anything though. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 21:40, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
Definitely no longer a Kong. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 21:44, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, most stuff in Superstar Saga had a weird design, but the nail in the Donkey-Kong-is-dead-theory coffin is that Bink was redesigned to look like a regular crewmember. Supporting. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 21:46, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
Yet another victim of the similarity stick...
Should still keep the Kong as his species and category, but maybe "Kong (original game)" or something. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:47, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
I figure, no idea how I'd go about doing that properly. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 22:00, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
What would he even be classified as for the remake? Just "skeleton"? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:02, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
Basically? Like that seems straightforward, I'm more puzzled about how to handle the Kong bit. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 22:35, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
Agreed. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 02:58, July 20, 2019 (EDT)
I'd agree with leaving things as-is for the most part, but just adding "(original)" to species or something to that effect in the infobox. The original version still exists, is even available on Virtual Console, and not going to disappear. LinkTheLefty (talk) 09:47, July 20, 2019 (EDT)
I think we should say "Kong (originally)" and then "Skeleton" in the species section; although it never really was stated that he was a Kong. PumpkinheadGoomba.png Spooky Mario Fan MK8DX Dry Bones Icon.png 10:18, July 20, 2019 (EDT)
That's what i meant. Though, we'll have to check guides (and Japanese ones). --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 10:27, July 20, 2019 (EDT)
His Superstar Saga design is basically a skeletal Kong, you don't need to source something like that. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 12:47, July 20, 2019 (EDT)
