* ConspiciouslyLightPatch: Particularly egregiously on the Donkey Kong Land games on the Gameboy Color, ANYTHING that wasn't the background was usually a completely different colour to the stage itself, making it blindingly obvious where everything was.
* ContinuityNod: The fourth world in the first Land game is in fact the city that the very first DonkeyKong took place in, the one where the original Kong held Pauline hostage on top of a skyscraper.

''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'', from 1999, brought the series onto the third dimension. In it, King K. Rool returns with a vengeance. Figuring that if he and his people can't have Donkey Kong's island, nobody can, so he steers an enormous high-tech warship next to it and plans to blast it right off the face of the Earth with his secret weapon, the [[{{BFG}} Blast-O-Matic]]. This game unites a team of Kongs (Donkey, Diddy, Dixie's sister Tiny, Kiddy's brother Chunky, and odd-man-out Lanky, although other familiar faces such as Cranky and Funky lend a hand along the way) who set out to find a series of 200 solid-gold giant bananas and the missing blueprints to the Blast-O-Matic in an effort to trounce the Kremlings for the final time.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: It's been 23 years and yet we ''still'' don't know where DK Island is.
** It's implied to be actually located somewhere in the real world, according to evidence from the DKC cartoon, as well as the German Club Nintendo comic "Donkey Kong in: Banana Day 24" to a greater extent.

** ''[=DKC3=]'' has Wrinkly occasionally playing her {{Nintendo 64}} when you go to save... when that's the case, you can clearly hear a rearrangement of the ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' castle theme.

* TheArtifact: The supporting cast consisting of Cranky, Funky, Candy, Wrinkly and so on were initially created for purposes like saving the game and allowing the player to replay levels, technical limitations that nowadays are considered braindeadly basic features. This means that many of those characters end up being PutOnABus, unless the game is a multiplayer that requires a large cast like Barrel Blast.

** While wild monkeys and apes do enjoy fruit, bananas usually arent a regular part of their diet, and they certainly don't hoard them, much less to the ludricrous degree Donkey Kong does. Wild monkeys born in the Americas and Africa (settings similar to where the Kongs live) didnt even have access to bananas for a while until the trees were planted there by humans. Amusingly, reptiles (like K. Rool and his Kremlings) do enjoy sweet fruit as a snack in spite of being carnivores.
