Kong Family


The Kong Family is a heroic group from Donkey Kong Series that was established by Cranky Kong's great-grandfather and led by Donkey Kong to bring together all Kongs from Donkey Kong Island.


The family is initially formed by Cranky Kong's great-grandfather. When Cranky married Wrinkly Kong, the family raised a son named Donkey Kong Jr., he became the Donkey Kong in which he became the current family leader and his nephew Diddy Kong as newly leader.

Dixie Kong also has her family in which she is related to her younger sister Tiny Kong and cousins as Chunky Kong & Kiddy Kong.

Other Kongs as Funky Kong, Candy Kong, Swanky Kong & Lanky Kong; Their kinship is unknown. Because they only appear as members of family.

After the Kremling Krew appears, the Kong Family has become a resistance group against any invader who want to take over the island and its resources. With this, individuals of other species began to be allies of the family, such as: Brothers Bear, Banana Bird Queen, K. Lumsy, Timber & his gang and Xananab who were helped.
