* GoombaStomp: Averted in DKC2, when he gets damaged if he tries to do so, but played straight in DKC3.



* PowerUpLetdown[=/=]SpoonyBard: While being able to make high jumps was useful, Winky's hopping (as opposed to walking) movement made him very difficult to control. This problem was addressed with his replacement, Rattly. Also, the GBA port greatly fixed his movement.

* EvilBrit: In the cartoon and in ''Donkey Kong 64''



* EyeScream: It's so bulgy and veiny... And that's just the more recent portrayals: in the ''DKC'' games and ''[=DK64=]'', the red marks don't even ''look'' like veins but ''blood stains on the eye'', which makes him look ''demonic''.

Subverted in the cartoon, though, where his eye is just bulgy.

* GeniusBruiser: He's pretty smart and very strong. Quite fitting as crocodiles are intelligent even among reptile standards.
