Favourite playable DK64 Kong?

Postby holysnap » March 2nd, 2008, 11:22 am

What's your favourite Kong to use it this game?

Personality-wise: Lanky has to be my favourite.

But I like to use Tiny Kong because of her pony tail whirl just makes reaching places easier.

How about you?

It's really because they replaced Dixie with a character almost identical, except for her shrinking ability. Really naffs me off that they felt that they needed a brand new character with only one major difference...

Chunky, I can sort of understand... but Tiny was just unneccessary.

I like Lanky, he's funny and has long range. And he was the only original new Kong.

But he's an orangutan... orangutans are meant to be the kongs' enemies!

True! I'm really not sure why that is... Maybe for the love of irony?

Lanky was my favourite new Kong due to how unusual he was, but I liked playing as Diddy the most, as with most games the little fella's been in. Diddy has always been a favourite of mine. The others Kongs... well, they just don't have tails, do they.

I think this thread is meant for DK64 Kongs... maybe it should be moved or renamed, or a new thread started.

Ack, can't believe I missed that. I should have known...

My favorites to use are Donkey and Diddy. Guess I'm a sucker for the prime primates...

Yeah, I actually thought Chunky's personality to be the funniest. On the character select he feels left out... until you are about to select him, then he doesn't think it's such a good idea anymore. :)

I only like Donkey and Diddy. I couldn't get used to the new kongs introduced in DK64. I cannot understand how they got rid of Dixie, I loved her in my childhood.

Haha, yeah that was classic. Probably one of my favourite DK64 gags. Chunky *was* kinda cool.

Okay, you've just won the Funniest Post of the Year Award. Next.

I'm undecided on this one. I want to say Lanky, because he's awesome, but... I also like Tiny. :o

She's just so loveable, you know? Something about her character always clicked with me. I never saw her as a Dixie clone, even though she really was one, and... I hate her redesign. GRRRRR.

Diddy, his Rocket Barrel Blast was just to fun. Especially when you got the homing peanuts.

My favorite playable kong has been always be Diddy Kong beacuse his electric gutiar sounds so cool when he plays it on a music space. And his Rocketbarrel jetpack is also a good power-up attack too. He can fly in the air while shooting his peanut guns. (Try it on the zingers!) And that's not all...
Spoiler!
I had a HUGE crush on him when I played DK64 and he's a cute, handsome, and a sexy young male monkey in this game.

^Strangest post of the year award! Seriously though, don't feel bad. I had a similar thing for Tiny's redesign. Not really, but still don't feel bad.

Really? What a coincidence. I'm an unserious Dawg. Seriously, no one can hate Lanky. It's okay if he's not your favorite, but hate is too far.

My favorite is Diddy Kong, hands down and no questions asked. Possibly because his popguns and rocketbarrel make him unique in DK64.

nickp17 wrote:King K. Rool stole a ton of golden banana's off them.

K Rool decides to hide them in order to buy time, so that he could blow up DK Isle... how would blowing up an island possibly benefit him? He could probably have did a better job selling all those golden bananas!

The thing is that K. Rool really, really, really hates the Kongs and wants to wipe them out of existence. Specifically Donkey Kong and the island shaped after him. I don't think he appreciates the fact that the face of his most hated nemesis is carved into the very mountains. Not to mention the Kongs destroyed his own self-styled island fortress.

You can't deny the fact that the new tiny is hot. I don't like it that they made her hot, but she is.

Why do you think they redesigned her to look like a teenager with huge....you knows. They were trying to appeal more to people, and though it doesn't make much sence, that's what they wanted to do. They were trying to make her look hot.

Why Donkey Kong of course. He'll be my favorite in any DK game.

I never really liked Diddy, and was quite upset that he got in and Dixie and Kiddy didn't (all four together would've made so much sense on the first console designed from the start with 4 players in mind). But oh well...

And of the new kongs I'd have to say Lanky is the best. We all love "Woo-Lah-loo" "whoop-lah" and of course "Key-Hip!"... But it is rather silly how he was the only one able to transform into enguarde.

But it's not just a regular monkey. It's a video game monkey, and when it comes to video games, anything can be hot.

Anything.

Actually, when I said No Joke, I meant Joke. It was sarcasm meant to prove the point. I have never once actually seen a sexy boulder, but I was joking about how they can make anything hot.

Logs on the other hand.... ;)

DK: big and slow.
Tiny: stole Dixie's spot.
Lankey: Great personality and he walks on his hands!
Chunky: A Kong who could out class DK if he wasn’t such a coward.

Diddy: a bit of a show off and, "He can fly real high with his jetpack on."

Diddy wins.
