The DK franchise hasn’t introduced any new, major Kongs since 64, and even the ones they introduced in 64 (Tiny, Lanky, Chunky) have basically all disappeared. I think Rare is leery to make new DK characters because anyone made later than DKC2 gets clowned on really fiercely—I mean, even Kiddie has gone completely radio silent. Retro was given the keys to the DKC IP, but they didn’t make any new Kremlins or Kongs; my theory is because they were on mandate from Rare not to do so. Given that context (subtext, really), I don’t entirely mind how they handled the playable Kongs in TF.

Quick music picks, since I’m headed to bed













Gonna call it quits for now but this is by far my favorite track in the game

I think I got that too. I always get logged out as well, kind of annoying.

^^^ I don't think Rare has anything to do with the creation of new Kongs, Nintendo did that way before Rare was even involved with the franchise. They probably just chose to play it safe and stay with the basics, which is a bit disappointing. Not including Kremlings makes sense of course, but then there's the animals missing too, so idk.

Those songs sound really good, especially the first one, the opening theme. I don't really feel "Donkey Kong Country" from them though, personally. They'd fit right in with Good-Feel's Yoshi games more, imo. I had to check if Alpine Incline was a remix or not though because it was so reminiscent of the classic games' soundtracks, but it's original. That one's really great. Scorch 'N' Torch nails that feeling too. I'm surprised they didn't get a copyright strike on the Lion King one though lol.

^ I usually do but it randomly stops working at some point. Not sure what causes it, maybe logging in through different devices or something.

Not sure what you're referring to about the creation of new Kongs--Diddy, Cranky, Funky, and Candy were all introduced in DKC1, which is a Rare-developed game. Dixie, Kiddie, Wrinkly, Swanky, Tiny, Lanky, and Chunky are all subsequent Rare-developed Kongs.

The only Kongs I can think of that were introduced before Rare's involvement were...Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr.

^ There was Donkey Kong Jr. II from Donkey Kong Jr. Math by Nintendo (before Rare) and Chained Kong from Super Mario RPG by Squaresoft (after Rare). Neither are very notable, especially the former as it's debatably just a non-canon sprite swap. Still, there's some precedence for non-Rare Kongs. There may be more non-Rare ones after Mario RPG but the list was too big to bother looking through.
