I made several cameos in those ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Smash Bros.]]'' games, too. I even appeared in the third and fourth games during my glory days in the 75m stage. My movement may have been limited, but it was fun smacking around the likes of Jumpman and his scaredy-cat brother, my grandson and that "nephew" of his, [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros that fire breathing turtle]], [[VideoGame/KidIcarus that green-haired hoity-toity goddess and that little bodyguard of hers]], [[VideoGame/FZero that loudmouthed, birdbrained galoot]] [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda and his]] MovesetClone (Get it? Heh-heh), [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} that sparky yellow varmint, the bipedal jackal who mutters about "aura"]], along with [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Mewtwo}} that psychokinetic sideshow]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII that broody punk with that oversized toothpick]], [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog that no hoper who didn't even bother]] [[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry2DiddysKongQuest collecting my Hero Coins]], [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} that shameless hussy who should be arrested for indecent exposure]], [[Franchise/StreetFighter that so-called arcade champ of the nineties]], and even [[VideoGame/PacMan ol' Dot Muncher himself]]. I'll bring some real action next time 'round, just you wait and see! And I got my eye on [[VideoGame/{{Splatoon}} you spraypainting hooligans]]!

Guess I'll start with my name. See here, most people these days know me as Cranky Kong--can't rightly imagine why, though. Thing is, the ape you're looking at was the ''original'' Donkey Kong -- back when all it took was four frames of animation and an infinite supply of barrels to strike ''terror'' into the hearts of game players. Look at my no-good grandson (people think he's my son, but that's because those lazy boneheads at {{Nintendo}} couldn't keep consistency if their whole company depended on it), what with his tie-wearing, his bongo playing, his peg-swinging…!

Oh…it was one of you [[BreakingtheFourthWall tropers]] again, eh? Jumping from page to page all day and night--drives an old ape to tears, really...

Hold up - so you're actually here to learn about ''my'' history now, are ya? Well, it's about time, if I do say so m'self! Right--where to begin…

''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' was a smash hit all over the world -- and all because of me! I was what the kids called "OG" - Original Gorilla! I…sorry, lost myself again.

The game itself was an exemplar of the great values of the old days of video gaming, where my rolling barrels, throwing jumping jacks, and…running a pie factory somehow…made the player, who controlled a goofy little character named [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros "Jumpman"]], work and sweat and dump in quarter after quarter to get to the end of each level and the game. Yeah, yeah, he won, I lost. I took my beating like a champ, and was always ready for the next round, with the obstacles a little faster, the timer a little shorter, and the hapless sucker in a near-constant state of dread, hunched over the joystick and the buttons like a--never mind.

I had at least (''at least!'') one more game in me, so once again I came forward to make some poor sucker's life a living heck ([[GoshDangItToHeck pardon my language there]]) in a little game called ''Donkey Kong 3''. Oh, you shoulda seen it - I was downright ''acrobatic'', with me climbing all up and down, knocking around beehives and wasp nests, making my worthy opponent have to scramble to keep them away from his blooming flowers and spraying me up the butt to win the round...y'know, I think it was around then I wanted to take a breather from the spotlight.

I was starting to feel my age a bit at that point, so I gave Nintendo my forwarding address if they needed me, and decided to pack up my family and move back to my home on Donkey Kong Island. Not much to say on that account; Junior grew up, married a local girl as they do, and had himself a son - that they named after his granddaddy, of course. Since I wouldn't let 'em forget how things used to be, they started to call me Cranky Kong - and that just made me more determined to give them an earful and then some! I think it was around that time that the wife said that she was going to pursue a career in teaching "like she always wanted" (coulda fooled me) and moved off to Crocodile Isle to open a franchise. Started working out too, which I think was due to my pet name for her - "Wrinkly Kong". What? It's cute!
