* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: In the original film, the stop-motion Kong models used on Skull Island were scaled to look 18 feet tall, but the one used in New York was made to appear 24 feet tall. The life-size hand, foot, and head props were built with a 40-foot Kong in mind, and RKO's marketing said Kong was 50 feet high. In the first remake, he's ranges from 42 to 55 feet, in ''Film/KingKongLives,'' he's 60 feet, in ''Film/KingKongVsGodzilla'' he's 148 feet, in ''King Kong Escapes'' he's 66 feet, and in Peter Jackson's remake, he's 25 feet tall, but would probably be closer to 35 if he stood upright like the others instead of walking on his knuckles.

''TAS'' gives his size as "forty feet at the shoulder."

* NewYorkSubway: The 1933 classic with Fay Wray features Kong wreaking havoc on the 6th Avenue El, and shows the interior of a Low-V El car.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sr0eA-7ttII&t=3m22s The 1976 remake substitutes the destruction of the Astoria El between Astoria Blvd and Ditmars Blvd in Astoria, Queens.]] The train used in this scene is the [[http://www.nycsubway.org/cars/r16.html R16-type cars]] (The interiors scenes were sets though).

* AdaptationalHeroism: Jack's misogyny, arrogance and butchness in the original are parodied in a secondary character in the 2005 version while he is reinvented a bookish, gentlemanly romantic. Ann, meanwhile, in the remakes, is no longer entirely terrified of the monster but sympathizes with him and is even able to calm him at times.

* {{Badass}}: Are you kidding? You can hardly get a more badass main character than a giant KillerGorilla that wrestles dinosaurs and fights airplanes on top of a skyscraper.

The original 1933 film has had two official remakes, along with numerous spin-offs, sequels, crossovers, and spoofs. Retellings in other media range from a DirectToVideo animated feature in TheNineties (''The Mighty Kong'' for those curious) to an Australian stage musical in 2013 (a Broadway production of this version has been announced, though the opening date is currently in limbo).
