Stupid things you thought

What were some stupid things that you first thought, in any of the games, and when you experimented you either lost a kong or died?

Donkey Kong Country
- In "Coral Capers" I thought Enguarde can kill anything. Until I lost him.
- In "Blackout Basement" I thought I knew where I was going. Until I died. Over 10 times.

Donkey Kong Country 2
- In "Barrel Bayou" I thought the swampy mud/water was something you can step on. (Like Super Castlevania IV).
- In "Bramble Blast" I thought those brambles were just decorations.
- In "King Zing Sting" I thought that hitting him in the face would be just fine. Lost several lives there.
- In "Castle Crush" I thought that Diddy could cartwheel his way to victory.

Donkey Kong Country 3
- In "Barrel Drop Bounce" the falling barrels you had to climb back and forth until you reach a barrel cannon, I seriously kept going and falling for 25 minutes.

When I was 8 I thought Dumb Drum's name was "Boss Drum-Drum" and my cousin thought he was "Boss Dumb-Dumb"

For some reason, my parents always told me Winky was magical because he could kill anything. To this day I still call him "Winky the Magic Frog"... and I pronounced Enguarde's name as En-guard-AY, thinking I was all French and cool. :|

Spoiler!
And I STILL miss those old smileys, gah-dang! :x

Enguarde's comes from the phrase "en garde!", right? So, I'm assuming it's pronounced the same, i.e. it sounds like "on guard" (possibly with a typical french nasalised 'n' sound, as if it wasn't there, like aw...guard?" I am useless at 'phonetic spelling' in terms of French words.

Ha, funny. I always pronounced it as En-gward-ay, until I finally figure it out.

Stupid things...hmm..

Well, for the longest time, I actually forgot K. Rool's Keep was just one level (Castle Crush) and then more recently than I'd like, I found out I was mistaken.

:(

1. The first DK game I ever played was DK64. I was about six. So of course the first time I saw Wrinkly I thought she was a man. :(

2. I thought Enguarde's name was ahn-joo-rod.

3. I heard since I was about nine or ten that Cranky's actual name is Donkey Kong (Sr.) so when I read his Donkey Kong Universe wiki, the artwork Proof I'm A Moron (in the fanart forum) came to be.

4. I remember arguing with my brother that, because I'd listen to the DK Rap one too many times and I was about seven, Lanky's name was actually Crazy.

5. When I was little, I was afraid that orange monkeys in blue pants were going to come out and attack us.

6. About number seven, when you're going down a street that's in the MIDDLE OF THE WOODS at NIGHT and you're SIX and have been playing Donkey Kong 64 WAAAAAAAAAAY too much that's actually pretty reasonable.

7. This is actually what my mom thinks, but I'm still afraid. I'm not. I just didn't say anything about it until I was about fourteen.

I though Enguarde was pronounced like "en-gad-u-ard."
I also thought "Oil Drum Alley" was ... I don't even know how I thought this, but ... I thought it was Oil Drumalley (like drum and alley were one word and pronounced like "druh-malley").
I think that I thought Dumb Drum was boss Dumb Dumb, too... I can't remember, though.

I used to think that Castle Crush was Castle Crash when I was younger. I also thought Rattly was named Rattles.

Okay, I don't honestly know where else to put this... it is silly and it is a thing I thought...

Does anybody else think that the one frame of DK's getting shot from a barrel frame looks like a chicken??? Yeah, it sounds really, really stupid... but take a look. I've rotated it. I see a resemblance; don't you? :lol:

When I was REALLY little, I thought every DKC game was only the first world long. :oops:
I was a little surprised when I got to the 2nd world... and I though Kaptain K. Rool was just a Kannon with a wooden sword.

To this day I wonder if Funky is related to Dixie somehow, simply because he was watching Kiddy prior to sacking Dixie with the task in DKC3.

Just in case no one heard me, I THOUGHT WRINKLY WAS A *honk*ING MAN THE VERY FIRST TIME I SAW HER.

So the ponytail didn't tip any of you off? Or the fact she is Diddy's girlfriend?

I was just 3 or 4, and at first, I did not even know that Diddy and Dixie where boyfriend and girlfriend, I found that out in 2009, when I got into DKC, hey, we all thought stupid things.

1. I used to think each of the games had only one world and one boss.

2. I used to think Kaptain K. Rool was just a Kannon with a wooden sword.

3. When I was younger I used to think Diddy and Dixie were siblings until I found a very "helpful" bit of fan art...

4. I used to think the picture of Kaptain K. Rool on the Krem koins in Donkey Kong Country 2 was K. Rool in a fireman's hat.

I thought a lotta stupid things in the past... can't remember any of 'em though...

Oh! ... Like in DK64, I occasionally rented the game, so all Kongs were already unlocked. I went to beat King Kutout and I saw the ?'s on the switch barrel. I thought I could unlock Dixie and Kiddy like this, somehow. xD

I also thought Expresso was a lady ostrich, but that's never specified, right? And they did say Ellie was the first female animal buddy...

Also, my far-fetched headcanons can possibly also qualify as stupid things. Like how I think sometimes that Kalimba Tiki is the indirect reincarnation of General Klump. ...What! I said 'far-fetched'!

I thought Diddy Kong was Donkey Kong's brother.

DKC was one of my childhood's favourite games, but i never heard of sequels until they were re-released on GBA.

I remember thinking that diddy was donkeys son and so was kiddy, don't get me wrong that could always be a possibility when you are 7, and I never knew kiddy had the name so I called him baby DK.
