|~ Donkey Kong|
Donkey Kong (full name Donkey Kong III or Donkey Kong the Third) is the main protagonist of the franchise of the same name, and a recurring character in the Mario franchise. The original Donkey Kong was once a rogue in the Nintendo universe and regularly antagonized Mario (who, in turn antagonized him back in one game ) - however he was revealed to be Cranky Kong in the Donkey Kong Country series. The current Donkey Kong is the protagonist of his own series, first appearing in Donkey Kong Country. He often stops the villain King K. Rool from stealing his banana hoard.
He sometimes appears in the Mario series, playable in spin-off games, such as Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros.. DK also became an ally to Mario in the Mario Party series. Other than spin-off games, Donkey Kong appears as a baby in Yoshi Island DS, and as a primary antagonist in the Mario vs Donkey Kong series.
The current design of Donkey Kong analyzes him as a big brown gorilla with huge muscles wearing a red tie with two yellow letters D and K, standing for his name.

Powers and abilities
Donkey Kong is capable of punching very hard, that he can even knock the moon out of orbit using his bare fists, as seen in the ending of ''Donkey Kong Country Returns''. In the intro of the game, it reveals he is apparently immune to mental assault as one of the Tikis attempted to hypnotize him, but failed to do so.
