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). The three major films are:

King Kong has been the basis for two attractions at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Orlando Resort]]. The first attraction, known as ''Ride/{{Kongfrontation}}'', was among the opening day rides at Universal Studios Florida in 1990. Based off the 1976 remake, the ride had guests board the Roosevelt Island trams and come face-to-face with the giant ape during his rampage in New York. The ride was suddenly closed in 2002, a decision that lead to much backlash from both fans and the general public. In response, a new King Kong attraction would eventually be built at the neighboring park, Universal's Islands of Adventure, in 2016. This new ride, titled, ''Ride/SkullIslandReignOfKong'', is loosely based off of the 2005 remake and follows an expedition to Skull Island that quickly goes awry as guests get several close encounters with the island's inhabitants before coming across Kong himself in a battle between him and a Vastatosaurus Rex trio.

* KillerGorilla: One of the most famous examples and one of the TropeCodifiers. Kong might be a NonMaliciousMonster, but he still kills numerous people, both island natives and New York citizens.

''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 own [[MonsterOfTheWeek monsters]]. There was also an earlier animated series about a heroic King Kong in the 1960s, ''WesternAnimation/TheKingKongShow''.

* 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.
