Introduced in 1994 for the UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem, and ported to the UsefulNotes/GameBoyColor four years later and to the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance six years after that, ''Donkey Kong Country'' introduced the groundbreaking technique of using pre-rendered 3D graphics in a 2D console game and marked the final decisive milestone in the early-to-mid '90s UsefulNotes/{{console war|s}} between the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis and UsefulNotes/SuperNintendo, with the latter emerging in the lead in the west (except for the UK, where the SNES was never popular even after this game). It also brought the star of ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' back into the limelight (though the game makes it clear that [[LegacyCharacter the Donkey Kong you play as is different from the original]], and that the original Donkey Kong is the older and aptly named SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong).

*** King K. Rool himself. You can only hurt him by jumping on his head. But he wears a spiked crown, so you can not jump on his head without hurting yourself. His main method of attack is to take off his crown and throw it at you.

In the first game in the series, the original ''Donkey Kong Country,'' Donkey Kong and his sidekick Diddy Kong travel across Donkey Kong Island to get back their stolen banana hoard from the Kremlings, an army of [[LizardFolk anthropomorphic crocodiles]] led by King K. Rool. In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry2DiddysKongQuest,'' released a year later, King K. Rool kidnaps Donkey Kong and takes him to the Kremlings' homeland, Crocodile Isle, forcing Diddy Kong and his girlfriend Dixie Kong to travel into enemy territory and rescue their friend. A year after that, ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry3DixieKongsDoubleTrouble'' has Dixie and her baby cousin Kiddy Kong search for Donkey and Diddy, who have mysteriously gone missing while on vacation in the Northern Kremisphere, and battling the Kremling cyborg (and [[TheAhnold Arnold lookalike]]) Kaos.

* FakeDifficulty: Rears its ugly head in ''Donkey Kong Land'' with very slippery jumping controls and inconsistent physics when trying to roll/cartwheel to gain speed.


Added DiffLines:

* RatchetScrolling: A very weird example in ''Donkey Kong Land'': A World 4 level features conveyor ropes to carry the Kongs up or down and, in most areas, you have to ride the rope to scroll downward. If you try to jump, you will die.
