Appearances in video games
Donkey Kong Country
Like with many other enemies such as Gnawties, DK or Diddy can defeat a Manky Kong by either jumping onto one, rolling/cartwheeling into one, or from tossing a Barrel at one.
Aside from Orang-utan Gang, Manky Kongs are also in the levels Ice Age Alley, Oil Drum Alley, Trick Track Trek, Blackout Basement, and Loopy Lights. In each level they are usually positioned at a high elevation to toss barrels from, which effectively protects them from passersby below.
In the Game Boy Color re-release, the player can print a sticker of Manky holding the letter J via the Game Boy Printer. The sticker is accessible from the option "ALPHABET" under the PRINT menu in the selection screen.
In the Game Boy Advance re-release, a photograph of a Manky Kong can be collected in Orang-utan Gang. The photograph is positioned somewhere above the trench leading to the level's first Bonus Level (located directly below the starting point). After being collected, Manky's photograph can be seen on the Scrapbook's fourth page.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Manky Kong appears as a sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Its sticker improves DK and Diddy's arm attack moves.
- Their name may have been derived from the British slang "manky", which means "dirty".
- Unlike most of the other Kongs, they are shown having four fingers and toes instead of five. Chunky Kong as well as Lanky Kong in Donkey Kong 64, also have this distinction.
