Jungle Beat characters = DKC characters?

Discuss the DK bongo games; Donkey Konga and DK Jungle Beat...
They may not capture the DKC spirit, but they have a character or two in common.

Jungle Beat characters = DKC characters?

Postby Jomingo » June 24th, 2009, 2:05 am

After playing through the new Jungle Beat remake, I've noticed how most if not all of the enemies are species of already existing DKC enemies, or have behavior similar to DKC enemies. So let's try and list all the Jungle Beat elements that could have easily been swapped out for DKC elements:

-The armadillo could've been army.
-The octopus could've been Croctopus.
-The Puffer fish could've been Puftup.
-The mouse that jumps on you could've been Neek.
-Many of the enemies could've been Kremlings. For instance, the pigs in the trees, or the brown/blue bear, and the ninjapes.
-The birds could've been Neckys.

Can you come up with any more?

This is a bit out there, but I always thought that some of the enemies could be evil versions of DKC regulars. Like, the frogs that puff up when you clap could have been evil Winkys, and the Tusk bosses could all be evil variants of Ellie. Karate Kong seems a bit like Cranky, and Sumo Kong could be Chunky. And obviously, make K. Rool the final boss. ;)

As for the animal buddies themselves:

Hoofer=Rambi
Orco=Enguarde
Flurl=Quawks
Helibird=Squawks

Edit: Jomingo, have you played the original Jungle Beat as well? If so, how do you think it compares to the original? I'm kind of curious.

- That giant spider enemy could've been Arich.
- The little wasps that home in on you could've been Zingers.
- Those things that are always trying to latch on to DK with their teeth could've been Klaptraps (possibly Klampons or Krimps).
- The sea jellies in the underwater levels could've been Squidges.
- Those elephant cannons could've been Bazukas.
- The bees with the propellers could've been Kopters.
- Maybe that giant red-eyed fish could've been a giant Lockjaw or Chomps.
- Chicken plant could've been...... nevermind.

That's all I've got for now.

@Tiptup: I have played the original, but I think I'll start another thread rather than talk about it here.

@Old Buzzard: Those things that latch on to DK are the mice that I said could've been Neek, but Klaptrap sounds even better.
