** No wonder he thinks games back in his days were challenging; HIS game had him as the bad guy destined to lose!

* "Take it to the bridge" is a term in music, often said aloud in rap, for when the verse ends and they go to the bridge of the song. So that's what the [[MemeticMutation memetic]] [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong64 "Take it to the fridge"]] line is based on. But why the fridge? Because the next few lines, the "bridge"... are just listing off ''food.'' Almost certainly Kirkhope's intention, but few people would have spotted it right away.

* Imagine if the Popeye game went through ... [[ForWantOfANail the whole Mario series would have ceased to exist]], along with possibly [[UsefulNotes/TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 console gaming in general]].
* We all know that ''this'' Donkey Kong later became Cranky, and was beaten fairly easily by Mario. You probably also know that he went berserk in the ''first place'' because he was a pet that Mario [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19321_5-classic-games-you-didnt-know-had-wtf-backstories.html abused]]. Flash forward to ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'', where this Donkey has been Cranky for a long while and has lost his physical strength. In exchange, however, he's gotten ''smart''. He's a master MadScientist who knows how to manipulate and enhance the body. Mario is used to dealing with strong, hulking opponents such as Donkey Kong and Bowser - he likely doesn't know how to deal with someone in a completely different area of expertise, let alone if that someone would be [[DesignatedHero rightfully pissed off]] if he ever saw him again. At ''best'', an encounter between them would be a HumiliationConga. At ''worst'', a CurbStompBattle.

* The subtitle of ''[[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest]]'' has bothered me and many others for a while. During production, it was "Diddy Kong's Quest", but it was changed at the end. Then the reason hit me: it's supposed to sound like "[[StealthPun Diddy's Conquest]]". - {{Tropers/Mischlings}}

* In ''VideoGameDonkeyKong64'', you play the original ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' arcade game for one of the Golden Bananas and the Nintendo Coin. Now, Jumpman, the character you play as in ''Donkey Kong'', moves slow and can't jump high... sort of like the Kong you rescue in the same level.
