Karate Kong is an old, yet powerful Kong and the sixth boss in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. So far, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat is the only appearance he's made in the Donkey Kong franchise as the King of the Pineapple Kingdom. He has a long purple robe with a black belt and a white beard and white tied skinny pony-tail like hair with red eyes. Karate Kong is the ruler of the Pineapple Kingdom, the sixth kingdom Donkey Kong ventures through. Despite his age, he is a skilled fighter, capable of doing very powerful flying kicks and karate chops. Despite his skill, Donkey Kong still manages to defeat Karate Kong on the log raft they were battling on.
Karate Kong later appears with the other Kong Kings (Dread Kong, Ninja Kong, Sumo Kong) at the end of the game ceremony since it seems that Ghastly and Cactus King put a spell on the Kong Kings so they celebrate and honor the victory over the Ghastly King and Cactus King instead of attacking him. As the name implies Karate Kong is skilled with the ancient art of karate.
Karate Kong is the only Kong in the game aside from Sumo Kong to wear a type of clothing.
