* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Cranky was meant to be a lot nicer during development of the first game, as seen [[http://tcrf.net/Donkey_Kong_Country_%28SNES%29#Unused_Dialogue here]]. A giraffe animal buddy was planned, as well, allowing DK to climb the giraffe's neck to reach high areas.

* The fan favorite BGM [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J67nkzoJ_2M Stickerbrush Symphony]] almost didn't make it into [=DKC2=]. It was originally designed to be for [[UnderTheSea underwater levels]], but these didn't end up in the game (the closest would be levels that take place inside flooded pirate ships). Instead, the soundtrack was used for the bramble levels to juxtapose the difficulty of them.

** Diddy Kong was actually originally going to ''be'' Donkey Kong Jr., but Nintendo rejected the redesign of the character, [[ExecutiveMeddling demanding either a closer design to the original or the new design be a new character entirely.]] Rare choose the latter option.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The original DKC trilogy was removed from the NA and PAL Wii Virtual Console services for reasons known only to Nintendo, meaning the only way to get copies of the game is finding either the original SNES cartridges or the GBA remakes. That is until October 2014, where all three SNES games were released for the Wii U's Virtual Console (along with the Donkey Kong Land games for 3DS) in Europe and no confirmation as of yet for North America.

* KillerApp: The Original ended up being the deciding factor in the SNES defeating the Genesis in the West. DKC actually ended up becoming the top selling video game that gen that wasn't bundled.
