Donkey Kong's exact role in the Mario franchise is somewhat hazy.
His original appearance portrayed him as a villainous or confused ape with unequaled strength. The 1994 Game Boy Donkey Kong was the first game to feature the tie (a red tie with the letters "DK" printed in white, later changed to yellow), but otherwise Donkey Kong is the same as he was in the original.
Donkey Kong's tactics in this game remain virtually the same, attacking mainly by throwing a variety of objects at Mario, although there are unique stage hazards whenever he confronts Donkey Kong.
In the game, Donkey Kong was the pet gorilla of "Jumpman" (later renamed Mario), but he escapes and angrily carries Mario's girlfriend Pauline to the top of a high construction site.
He is pursued by Mario and attacks him by throwing Barrels and creating living Fire.
Indeed, this new Donkey Kong was a character built for a new generation.
During the current Donkey Kong's infancy, he is stolen from his treetop home by Kamek and his Toady army during their massive kidnapping spree.
He is eventually chased to the top of the construction site, where Mario causes the girders supporting him to collapse, sending him plummeting to the ground.
Donkey Kong tries to kidnap Pauline yet again in the 1994 Game Boy remake Donkey Kong, and this time he's accompanied by his son, Donkey Kong Jr.is a powerful heroic Kong from Donkey Kong Island and the main protagonist of the Donkey Kong franchise (however, he has also been portrayed as a villain on multiple occasions, as seen in the Mario vs. He is a carefree ape who spends his days collecting Bananas and spends time with his friends, particularly his buddy Diddy Kong.However, when trouble arises, Donkey Kong jumps headfirst into the action to help his friends and protect his island.Without being at least somewhat invested in the characters, the audience might have passed the point of caring when the character finally comes around.It's a cousin trope to Cursed with Awesome — it can be hard to dredge up sad feelings for a character whose life is in every respect more glamorous (or at very least, more interesting) than the audience members'.However, with the release of Donkey Kong Country later that same year, Donkey Kong was given a new personality and a new home.
