Manky Kongs are long-armed orange orangutans found in the game Donkey Kong Country.
Manky Kongs are semi-common enemies found mostly in later levels of the game. Manky Kongs attack Donkey and Diddy by hurling barrels at them in a continuous pattern. Donkey or Diddy must avoid these barrels and jump on a Manky Kong's head to defeat it. Their first and originating level area is Orang-utan Gang while their final level appearance is Loopy Lights.
It is unknown if Manky Kongs have any relation to the Kong Family. It is thought by some that they may have once been members of the Kong family but were kicked for being too rowdy as the Donkey Kong Country manual describes them as "Kong reject orangutans".
Donkey Kong Country
- The name Manky Kong possibly comes from the word Manky, which is a British slang term meaning dirty.
