Donkey Kong is a brown gorilla with a red necktie with his initials on it, serving as the protagonist of the game series of the same name and a recurring character in Mario spinoff games.
He originated as a barrel throwing enemy in the arcade game Donkey Kong and later became a hero in the first Donkey Kong Country, and ever since then this ape has made numerous appearances in his main games and Mario spinoff games, as well as a variety of spinoffs of his own, gaining numerous Kong friends and various enemies.
In Donkey Kong 64, he's the character you start as and he must rescue the other four on his quest to retrieve the Golden Bananas. Each character gets a ranged weapon, and DK's is of course the Coconut Gun.
Donkey Kong was one of the Figments materialized into the real world by the Voice Inside Your Head in "Prologue", before being immediately taken by the Patrol-Bots. As of "Loves the Ladies", he is still in captivity.
