Re: Why is Donkey Kong called Donkey Kong?
Once there was an Abdhulla Abdhulla on T.V. Yes - that actually appeared in the name box. (I don't know about the actual spelling though)

As for Donkey Kong - I assume Kong means Gorilla and donkey means stupid but strong animal...

What about Diddy Kong?
His legacy will last until the beginning.

Diddy = Small, I would presume that was what was intended.

Re: Why is Donkey Kong called Donkey Kong?
Thought so, since Diddy Kong is small and crappy...
His legacy will last until the beginning.

Diddy Kong's Quest is the best game in the entire series.  :yes:

QFT and fixxored. :nod:

This game taught us that Diddy might have "mad cartwheel skills", but they pale in comparision to Dixie's "helicopter hair".
Still have it for the SNES, actually. One of my favorite games of all time.

I almost always played as Dixie. The helicopter hair was so useful.

Re: Why is Donkey Kong called Donkey Kong?
I liked playing as her too...except for that one time I got burned fighting one of the big vulture bosses when I didn't get the barrel throw off in time.  The great part about Diddy was that you could just let enemies run into you if you were carrying one.

Re: Why is Donkey Kong called Donkey Kong?
If i rough translate Donkey Knog to japanish and back to english, it sounds like "Asshole Monkey"

which would make sense:

original game: rescue princess from asshole monkey who steal her.

I usually played as diddy, so that way when he died, i could use her. That way i would not get stuck.
Imagine awakening, and hearing the heartbeat of the galaxy for the first time.
It is like a cloud, a mist that drifts from living creature to creature, set in motion by currents and eddies.
It is the eye of the storm, the passions of all living things turned into energy, into a chorus.
It is the rising swell at the end of life, the promise of new territories and new blood, the call of new mysteries in the dark.
