I've always wondered, are the Dk Isles and also all other locations the kongs have ventured to (Crocodile Isle, Timber Island, etc.) apart of the Marioverse or just connected to it like Earth (and supposedly other worlds, which would explain Link and the Pikmin's appearance(s) in Mario games). -- Sir Grodus

Well, I believe it is a part of the Marioverse, the general universe of Mario and the gang. However, whether it is a part of the Mushroom World, that's a different question. It would make sense that DK could easily travel between the DK Isles and the Mushroom Kingdom, and as such both would be part of the same world. Locations in the DK Isles also appear in Mario games, such as Mario Party 7 (DK and the Mario Party players battle in the jungles around DK's house). Klaptraps and Kritters have also appeared in Mario games as regular old baddies, not special cameo characters. Diddy Kong has also appeared in the roster of regular old playable Mario characters. That leads me to believe that the DK Isles are a part of the Mushroom World. Regarless, DK is a part of the Marioverse, as the DK franchise is where Mario emerged from. -- Son of Suns
I've questioned this too. The settings of the Donkey Kong games seem to be distinct from the "style" of the Mushroom World. The environments are far less surreal and most inhabitants, excluding the Tiki Tak Tribe, are only anthropomorphic animals. DK obviously belongs to the Marioverse, but I agree whether its part of the Mushroom World, as diverse as that setting is, is indeed questionable. I'd wager that DK and Mario are both connected through the "Real World", which has connections to their separate dimensions, if that makes any sense.
Although I guess we have no evidence for the DK Isles being part of the Mushroom World or distinct from it. Hmmmm. --Goomboy 02:31, 18 May 2012 (EDT)

Name[edit]

I think perhaps the name of this article should be changed to "Donkey Kong Island", as I think it is generally more well known by that name. -- Sir Grodus

Yes, change it. Paper Jorge ( Need to tell me something? Go to my talk page.·Contributions·) 19:32, 15 October 2006 (EDT)

About DK Isles[edit]

Given the plural and that it appears (I believe) anywhere when paused on the hub world, this is probably supposed to be the name of the archipelago the main island is a part of, as seen in Donkey Kong 64 (and maybe Tropical Freeze). LinkTheLefty (talk) 19:52, 11 October 2014 (EDT)

DK Isles should definitely be split. Donkey Kong Island (world) and Mushroom Kingdom (Super Mario Odyssey) have their own articles, so DK Isles should also have one, especially since it includes more than just Donkey Kong Island. With the current setup, we have to jam DK Isles' Golden Banana list at the bottom of this article, which is just awkward. PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 20:14, 17 September 2018 (EDT)

I agree. --Seandwalsh (talk) 08:24, 23 September 2018 (EDT)
If there are no objections and I'll go ahead and split this, otherwise I'll start a proposal. PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 21:31, 1 January 2019 (EST)
It should probably be split, given it includes other islands as well (namely the banana fairy island, and a sandy area that the secondary Flying Krock crashes into, iirc). Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:52, 1 January 2019 (EST)
