A Kong is an ape or monkey capable of speech and creating things like houses and other such things that are from the Donkey Kong series. The Kongs willingly wear clothes, and some of them have hair. They are often plagued by the crocodilian Kremlings. All of the Kongs reside on Donkey Kong Island. The name Kong does not necessarily mean that they are related, but could mean that they are a part of a clan or tribe.
