Manky Kongs are long-armed orangutans found in the game Donkey Kong Country. Manky Kongs are the only Kongs in Donkey Kong Country to be an enemy. In fact, these orangutans are described as Kong reject orangutans, implying that they've been exiled from the Kong Family. The Manky Kongs presumably migrated to Vine Valley, with many debuting in the level "Orangutan Gang".


Mankys attack by throwing a seemingly endless supply of barrels in the Kongs' path. As with other regular enemies, jumping or rolling into it will defeat him, but the former is usually safer. In later levels they normally appear in high places throwing barrels, dealing as obstacles.

Aside from the various remakes of Donkey Kong Country Manky Kongs have not appeared again, though another orangutan named Lanky Kong appears in the game Donkey Kong 64.


Donkey Kong Country[edit]



  • Manky's name likely comes from the word "manky", which is a British slang term that means dirty.
  • Manky Kong's name is similar to the name of the Pokémon Mankey.
