DK dissonance by Ribbedebie DK dissonance by Ribbedebie
A fitting 700th deviation... WOOOT? 700? :iconforeveraloneplz:

You know, Donkey Kong isn't just a barrel-throwing womanizer. Donkey Kong has his own SAGA of HEROIC ENDEAVORS (even though he got kidnapped 2/4 of the time) and his own BAND OF FRIENDS AND ENEMIES........

yet some people I can't mention never quite left the eighties

no offense to anyone... I just get a little sour whenever someone thinks DK as a mere Mario enemy

I'm silly like that

Also, the way I see DK himself is something like the Incredible Hulk mixed with Tarzan.

True. Both Cracked and Game Theory had made some hilarious examinations of why DK was the protagonist even in the original classic arcade game and that Mario was the guilty one.

Two words: ANIMAL ABUSE!

Among these requests is a sort of a Diddy Kong spinoff game. I've seen some action-adventure games like Assassin's Creed or the Batman Arkham series and I figured out that Diddy could have his own game like that with plenty of parkour, "cartoon violence," and of course the light-hearted humor that would ensure the game doesn't take itself too seriously, only that the jokes are far less crude and the moments end up being cute.

Yeah I always saw DK like that. The classic version (where DK was just another one of Mario's enemies) was Cranky's time (excluding the MvsDK series) but I always saw DK as the current DK teaming up with his pals (or going solo sometimes) to defeat Kremlings, Tikis and etc. and saving his island and banana hoard.

I do think DK is a bit better off since he got his own IP. It's strange that DK, who doesn't speak, has more personality than Mario (or Sonic, for that matter, and he's the one that TALKS).

Yeah, I agree with how you see Donkey Kong. Even though Cranky Kong was supposedly the original Donkey Kong that stole Pauline and fought with Mario and the Donkey Kong now is the DKC Donkey Kong. That's just how I see it.

I think of DK the same way. He proved he was a true awesome bruiser in Jungle Beat, and in Country Returns, he PUNCHED THE MOON OUT OF THE SKY. EFFORTLESSLY. I'd like to see other characters his size do that.

Yeah it’s a shame. Most if his fame comes from the arcade videogame and his appearances in the Mario games. Heck, the fame of the character exceeds the fame of his games.

Then again, most of the fans aren’t exactly helping the fandom either; they act as if the DKC/DKL trilogy, the arcade game and DKCR were the only DK games ever made and pretty much deny the existence of all the other great DK games simply because they weren’t carbon-copies of DKC like they wanted.

Yup and it they want to attract new fans while keeping older fans interested they also have to make 3D games and other game that play differently from DKC. I love DKC but it’s not like they could’ve spent the last 18 years making nothing but side scrollers. That would have been boring.  Take Mario for example. He’s had 4 NSMB games (5 if you count NSLU), two 3D games that play like NSMB (SM3DL and SM3DW) and they even made a Super Paper Mario play like the old SMB and made both Mario Galaxy games linear and devoid of freedom to “make it easier for fans of the SMB/NSMB games to enjoy” and people are sick of it. Imagine the hate that a less popular series like DK would have gotten. The reason why DKCR was so well received was because it had been 14 years since we had a main DK game (all the other games he had had after DK64 were spin-offs) otherwise nobody would have cared.

"Cute vs. Creepy" is my favorite aspect of the old Donkey Kong franchise and of Disney as well. I had ideas to amplify it in both my fan fiction and my original stories alike with the conflict the monguins often have.

I remembered the Super Mario Brothers as a sort of a very simple arcade game that is also a puzzle. Actually, I played SuperTux not only because it felt like Super Mario World, but also because I'm a fan of Tux as much as I am of Diddy.

What I remembered the most from the Donkey Kong games and of the other Rareware titles is that sort of cute vs. creepy theme.

However, since I'm also a fan of Assassin's Creed and a pseudo-fan of Linux's mascot, I've been thinking of some Donkey Kong games myself. Anyone who wishes to do a Donkey Kong 3D game should definitely look at Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag because I can relate that game to the Donkey Kong franchise (and the Goldeneye franchise as well) as easily as I can relate Ezio Auditore to both Mario and Sonic. (monguin.deviantart.com/art/Sup… story by me by the way) A Diddy Kong solo game that is also 3D might also be interesting, but apparently, it would not be for people who love killing things or just straight combat like Halo. I also told CalibruStrawberry, which I think is actually a Linux developer of some kind, about my ideas for a probable Donkey Kong clone with Tux.

I go with the bottom part. Mario and DK are rivals, but I mostly see em as good pals and see DK in his own series. Besides, Mario is better of saving Peach from Bowser with his bro Luigi.
