* 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.

''WesternAnimation/KongTheAnimatedSeries'' involves a much more heroic, cloned version of the original ape helping a group of [[RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude plucky teens]] race an evil mastermind to be the first to [[GottaCatchEmAll collect all of a series of magical stones]]. The show's human hero (who was also a DNA donor for this show's version of the big ape) could [[FusionDance cybernetically combine with Kong]] to make him more of a match for the villain's monsters. There was also an earlier animated series about a heroic King Kong in the 1960s, ''WesternAnimation/TheKingKongShow''.

** Even worse, ''A Natural History Of Skull Island'' tells us Denham led ''several more'' expeditions to the island that got even more people killed, after which the whole place sank into the sea in an earthquake. So ''every'' exotic species on the island wound up extinct, and the natives too.
