Donkey Kong, DK for short, is an ape appearing in the Donkey Kong and Mario Bros. series that lives on Donkey Kong Island. He usually has to battle the Kremling Krew and their leader, King K.

Super Mario Bros.: Plumbers Unite

Donkey Kong makes his first appearance in a non-spin-off Mario game in the Wii U/3DS title. Prior to the events of the game, DK decided to travel to Yoshi's Island for a vacation. However, he was unaware that the island's waters had been poisoned due to a recent Piranha Plant infestation, and when he tried to take a dip in one of the lakes, he ended up possessed by the toxic substance, just like most of the Toads and Yoshis who were on the island. Slowly dying due to the poison, Donkey Kong went insane and began a violent rampage. Later on, Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi arrived on the island and come across the gorilla, witnessing firsthand his destructive actions. Mario attempts to reason with him, only for it to go nowhere, before Luigi points out that DK had been poisoned. The four plumbers are thus left with no choice but to fight him. After the battle, DK apologizes for what he had done and proceeds to continue his vacation while staying away from the water. The player will also have the option to re-fight him if they choose. The fight can occur at any time ot day, though it is only accessible at night if playing on Hard Mode.

During the battle, the arena is surrounded by tall, thick slabs of dirt that can't be broken through. Donkey Kong is capable of clinging to the grass on the walls and on the canopy of the palm trees in order to avoid most attacks. His attacks include tossing wooden barrels, iron barrels that roll more slowly but deal more damage, and TNT barrels that explode upon contact and hurt even more, as well as leaving a patch of fire on the ground for a spell. He also tosses banana peels that serve as a slipping hazard. All of these projectiles except for the TNT barrels can be knocked back at DK via Waluigi's physical attacks, though repelling the banana peels will not do any damage. While on the ground, DK can also throw either single or rapid punches and create shockwaves by slapping the ground. A more disturbing attack of his is the ability to vomit poisonous sludge onto the ground from wherever he is, creating a slipping hazard as well as damaging anyone who touches it. He takes various amounts of damage depending on the type of attack he is hit with, as well as the plumber who used the attack. Most attacks will damage DK, though being hit by a fire attack or an explosive will light up his fur, causing him to receive damage constantly over the course of a few seconds. The only things that won't hurt him are ice attacks, which he will merely punch through, (and in the case of Mario's and Wario's, will knock them back). The player's goal is to whittle Donkey Kong's health meter down by a third, causing him to become stunned. Only then can he be damaged by ice, which not only freezes him, but also partially cures him of the poison. Once DK is frozen, he must be pushed into one of the walls, shattering the ice and leaving him stunned for longer, at which point he must be pummeled by any attack for a but until he recovers. Rinse and repeat twice more, and the battle is over, followed by DK apologizing for his actions.

In Hard Mode, the battle is altered somewhat. He is twice as large, and his power, speed, and defense have been doubled. All of his projectiles are doubled in size and damage-output, and thus cannot be repelled. He also stays stunned for only half as long as before, and is immune to the Weapon Suit. Fire attacks won't last as long against him, and the shockwaves he produces are larger. Aside from these buffs, DK also has darker skin and black fur, alongside a yellow tie and red eyes, with the poisonous aura surrounding him being green instead of purple. He also gained a new attack, in the form of summoning one of three of his helpers from Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, making use of their abilities to damage the plumbers and get around the arena quicker.
