Uho'uho Daishizen Gag: Donkey Kong is a manga published by Shogakukan and serialized by CoroCoro Comics between 2000 and 2001, created by emergent manga artist Makoto Hijioka. It is based on the animated series of Donkey Kong Country, with elements from other games of the franchise.


The plot of the manga follows the same one of the animated series: on Donkey Kong Island, Donkey Kong is in possession of the mystical Crystal Coconut, which makes him the king of the island. King K. Rool, the Kremling ruler, wants the Crystal Coconut for himself and to rule over the island.

Differently from the show, the manga introduces more characters from the games to the cast: Tiny Kong, Chunky Kong, Lanky Kong, and Kiddy Kong, alongside many of the enemies. Beside having some chapters directly based on the show's episodes, the rest of the manga has original stories in line with the both the game and television's franchises.
