Talk:Kong

From the Super Mario Wiki

Should Manky Kongs be counted as a sub-species of kongs? Also what about other simians such as Minkeys, Ninjapes and the unamed White Monkeys of Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat? -- Sir Grodus

I've decided to just stick the Manky Kongs in the species category unless someone wants to oppose this. -- Sir Grodus

Well it depends if they have Kong in their name, then I consider them Kongs. Remember that not all monkeys/apes/orangutans are Kongs. (and personally I think Lanky Kong is a Kong)--Knife 23:53, 3 December 2006 (EST)

Still can't decide whether the Manky Kongs should be counted as a sub-species though. -- Sir Grodus

I would consider Manky Kongs a sub-species. However, I would not consider any enemy without the "Kong" surname a sub-species. -- Son of Suns
Mystery Kong.

New Kong[edit]

I've recently discovered that in Diddy Kong Pilot a new Kong was going to appear. Virtually nothing is known about this guy, not even his name. Do you think he should be mentioned in the article? -- Sir Grodus

If the source is reliable then yes. -- Son of Suns

I have this picture of him, one of the few Diddy Kong pilot pics. I could find. Hes between Cranky and Donkey.

Hmm... he looks like a hillbilly. Anyway, we should have a Beta Elements page just like on Mariowiki.--Knife, the guy who just asks questions, but does nothing on the wiki 23:22, 12 December 2006 (EST)

His name is Bumpkin kong from what I've heard and yes we should put him in the article.

Plus theres also that other Kong, the one with the hat seen on the Donkey Kong Beta Elements page. I though Bumpkin Kong was just a fan name like Glower or Flapper. -- Sir Grodus

How about H. Billy Kong?--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

It doesn't matter what you name him because its going to the beta elements page. Just describe a hillbilly-lookin kong. User:Knife/sig1

Wait a second... It doesn't seem like this character belongs in Beta Elements. He isn't exactly a Beta Element, just a character from a game that was never released. If Diddy Kong Pilot was released, I'll bet this guy would've still been in. --YellowYoshi398 11:34, 3 February 2007 (EST)

It technically was released: Banjo-Pilot. -- Sir Grodus

Oh, yeeeaaahh.... Sorry, I'm not that Donkey Kong adept. Anyway, based on what I've gathered, I did, however, make a Banjo-Pilot section for Donkey Kong Beta Elements. --YellowYoshi398 22:26, 4 February 2007 (EST)

Baby Kong[edit]

Should we even have him on the list if there is no article on him? I mean, all the Kongs have links except for him, and he sort of sticks out. He shouldn't be on the Kong list that goes on the bottom of the article if he doesn't have a link, so should I just delete him? I don't even remember him from being in any games.

Frum LANKY KONG!

He wasn't in any games, he was from the cartoon. Besides, removing a red link because its an eye sore is prohibited or something. Having it there will encourage someone to make an article one day. -- Sir Grodus

species or family?[edit]

Is kong a species of ape in mushroom world, or is it just the name for Donkey Kong's family of apes? 25px CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png

Uh... Both? - Blitzwing (talk · gnome work)

Really? I'd find it a little weird if some family's last name was "human". 25px CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 09:41, 1 March 2008 (EST)

Since all the simians are kongs (that I know of), it is a species.Zjschertz 21:40, 4 May 2010 (EDT)

I think kongs are a species of simian that can have the traits of any known type. Also, Ukikis are simian, but they're not kongs MarioLover54 (talk) 13:51, August 2, 2019 (EDT)

Mini Donkey Kong[edit]

Should this character be added? He isn't really a monkey, but he is based off of Donkey Kong. A Link to the Present 15:51, 7 February 2011 (EST)

This article lists the members of the Kong species. Mini Donkey Kong is a toy, AKA not part of it, thus he doesn't belong here. --Reversinator 17:41, 12 February 2011 (EST)

Family Relationships[edit]

So a good chunk of the Kongs have been confirmed as family (i.e. DK and Funky are brothers, Diddy is DK's nephew and Funky's son, Kiddy and Chunky are brothers and Dixie's cousin, etc.) So should we add a Kong Family Tree of sorts?

Where is it confirmed that Donkey Kong is related to Funky? i'm pretty sure they have been confirmed as just being friends. Marshal Dan Troop (talk)
I dunno, I heard it somewhere. If it's not confirmed then just don't add it- but it is definitely confirmed that Cranky and Wrinkly are married, DK is their son/grandson, Diddy is DK's nephew, Dixie and Tiny are sisters, Kiddy and Chunky are Dixie and Tiny's cousins, etc. So...

Nvm, the Kong Family covers that :)

Related species[edit]

Okay, who removed the grunt and the ukiki from related species? Those belong there, they're primates! MarioLover54

Both being primates does not a relation make. If that was true, we'd be listing every single human character in the whole Mario series as related. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 07:55, August 1, 2019 (EDT)
Not characters, just the species! Also, it scientifically does. MarioLover54

I meant simians! MarioLover54 (talk) 13:49, August 2, 2019 (EDT)

They're both simians, is that better? MarioLover54 (talk) 13:50, August 2, 2019 (EDT)

Hello? MarioLover54 (talk) 14:55, August 2, 2019 (EDT)

>_> >_> >_> The "related species" parameter is for species who were created specifically to be related, not ones who happen to be of a similar real-life species. Stop being so impatient. Ukiki is borderline due to an unused boss from SMW2, but Grunt has nothing to do with this. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:57, August 2, 2019 (EDT)
Even then, a single enemy wouldn't be sufficient for a connection in my honest opinion. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 09:48, August 3, 2019 (EDT)

Alright, but I at least think the grunts from one of the Wario games deserve a mention, those do happen to be gorillas! MarioLover54 (talk) 09:55, August 3, 2019 (EDT)

That's literally the same logic wearing a different hat. "They're gorillas" alone is not enough. Period. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 09:56, August 3, 2019 (EDT)
