* 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.

** 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]].

** 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]]. According to early concept art, Cranky was originally named "Grandpa Kong" and looked like a white version of Donkey Kong with a beard.



** 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.

** 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. The main difference between his DK Jr design and his Diddy Kong design is that he changed species (he gained a tail) and lost the "J" on his shirt.


Added DiffLines:

** The Kremlings originally had a more ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}''-esque design and were blue.


Added DiffLines:

** An unused plot for the first game was a crossover with Wario named ''Donkey Kong Vs Super Wario''.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** Concept art shows that K.Rool originally was named "Krudd".
** The earliest known plot involved the Kremlings stealing a "Golden Banana", causing Donkey Kong and Jr to have to get it back. The Golden Banana made it into material such as [[WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry the cartoon]].

* 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.
