Người Nhật là ai?
Donkey Kong, also known as DK, is a male gorilla, the main protagonist of the Donkey Kong franchise, and the leader of the DK crew. Over the years, Nintendo has been ambiguous about just how many Donkey Kongs there have been. The first character named Donkey Kong appeared in the 1981 arcade game Donkey Kong and its sequels, serving as the villain. In 1994’s Donkey Kong Country, a new, different-looking Donkey Kong was introduced, said to be the grandson of the original arcade character, who was now the elderly Cranky Kong. In subsequent games, however, the likeness of the “new” Donkey Kong is often used in place of that of the “old” Donkey Kong in games such as Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Game and Watch Gallery (in the title screen only), and Yoshi’s Island DS, in which Mario and DK are both babies. However, the modern DK being the same age as Mario would be anachronistic, as Mario is portrayed as significantly older in age than the original Donkey Kong’s offspring in Donkey Kong Jr.
