Manky Kongs are long-armed orangutan enemies who debut in Donkey Kong Country. They are labelled "Kong reject orangutans" in the game's manual, which implies they were exiled from the Kong family.
Their name might have been derived from the British slang term "manky", a synonym to the word "dirty".
Appearances in video games
Donkey Kong Country
Manky Kongs first appear in Donkey Kong Country. They debut and star in the Vine Valley level "Orang-utan Gang". Mankys attack Donkey and Diddy by tossing an endless supply of barrels at them. Like many other enemies, Mankys are defeated if jumped on, rolled into, or if a barrel is tossed at it. Mankys are often found on high regions of the game's later levels.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Manky Kong appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker. Its sticker improves Donkey or Diddy's arm attack moves.
