* If you really think about it, this makes the most sense. The world the game is set in is different, instead of getting help from family, DK's getting help from odd little monkeys, the "Other Kongs" are not related and are actual bosses, DK himself is more aggressive and has more of a JerkAss attitude, especially if you believe the story that say DK's only beating up these bad guys so he can be known as the biggest BadAss around. Hell, even the iconic Kongo Jungle theme is massively different from its original version.

Also [=DK64=] is the only game where Diddy is called DK's nephew, so by extension he must be the DKC Donkey Kong's cousin (it also of course means that he's Cranky Kong's grandson too, which explains the line "Say hello to your old grandpappy Cranky." in DKC2 where Diddy is the main character).

Is this merely [[FanWank an excuse for Rare and Nintendo being unable to keep their facts straight]]? Mostly, but it is worth noting that DK64 is [[AnthropomorphicZigZag the only game where Donkey Kong walks bipedally]], and that while Diddy's popguns and jetpack became his standard moves in VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns Donkey's coconut shooter and kicking attack are completely absent.

Peach fled the Mushroom Kingdom and hid out in Brooklyn as a performer named Pauline to escape Bowser and the Koopas. She and Mario became close friends before she was abducted by Donkey (Cranky) Kong, who was working for Bowser. When Mario saved her from Donkey Kong, she revealed her true identity to him and asked him to come save the Mushroom Kingdom from Bowser. Mario, along with Luigi, followed her there, where Peach was kidnapped by Bowser. The rest is history...

The manuals and dialogue in those games seemed to contradict each other on what Donkey's relation to Cranky was... but what if both are correct? The Donkey Kong featured in Donkey Kong 64 is Donkey Kong Jr. all grown up, and also the [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Father/Uncle]] of the Donkey Kong featured in Donkey Kong Country (both SNES and modern series), but is still young and fit enough for adventure.

* This theory makes a LOT of sense, and it would explain all of the discrepancies that Donkey Kong has with the rest of the Mario series. You actually see Mario and Luigi as babies in a later game. And it's specifically stated in one of the Donkey Kong Country games that Cranky Kong is the original Donkey Kong that faced Jumpman, and the current Donkey Kong is either his son or grandson (depending on media).
