* It is claimed by some people that the name of the main character in the DonkeyKong video games was the result of a mistranslation and that his name was supposed to be "Monkey Kong". WordOfGod says this is not true and that the reason the character has this name is because "donkey" was simply a term meaning stubbornness to describe him.
