* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: For all of his failings, Klump is an ''amazing'' spy, often finding things out about the Kongs the same time as we do.

** DK in the show has an entire song about how terrieid he is of the supposed 'Bog Monster.' DK in the games would be more likely to punch it.

* AdaptationalWimp: Unlike his game counterpart, Diddy Kong is about as effective against the bad guys as, well, a little kid fighting grown-ups. The most he ever does in a fight is help DK turn on Cranky's booby-trapped footbridge.

** K. Rool in the games is a final boss capable of clobbering DK and leaping across the battlefield. K. Rool in the show is more likely to hide behind Krusha and Klump once things stop going his way.

** RetiredBadass: K. Rool and Cranky used to do a lot of crazy stunts when they were friends. In the episode about their former relationship, they mention "tsunami wrestling" and "skydiving without a parachute".

* InsistentTerminology: Or rather, insistence on ''not'' using a particular terminology. The word "Kremling" is never heard at any point throughout the series. Instead, the minions are called "Kritters".
** FridgeBrilliance: Probably because that's what they ''are''; like all of the Kremlings in the show, they're based on a specific enemy from the first ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' game -- specifically, the basically "Kremling grunt" or "Kritter"[[note]]Known as "Klomp" in the 2nd game, and "Kobble" in the 3rd.[[/note]]. Kremling means the race as a whole, but K. Rool's minions are all Kritter-type Kremlings.[[note]]This includes Klump and Krusha, even though they aren't "Kritter" characters.[[/note]]

* OddNameOut: Bluster in the Kong's ThemeNaming of ending with an "e" sound and in Skurvy's crew there's Green Croc. [[NonIndicativeName Who isn't even green.]]
** Green Croc is likely a nod to the term Greenhorn, which implies a newbie sailor on a vessel.

* OutOfFocus: Dixie gets this treatment pretty badly, having like one single episode or two dedicated for her. Even in ''Message in a Bottle Show'', she's the only one out of everybody ''and the villains'' who hardly does anything with DK and thus doesn't even get to use flashbacks. It feels like she's a RecurringExtra rather than a secondary character.

Rool believes it is a DoomsdayDevice. [[spoiler:It turns out to be some now-spoiled bananas that DK buried in his youth.]]

* TheUnseen: Bluster's mother or "Mumsy". She is never seen, heard, or involved directly in most of the plots. She is repeatedly mentioned as The real owner of the barrel works, and is apparently wealthy. It's also implied she voted in the episode "Vote of Kong-fidence" AGAINST her son.

* WeWantOurJerkBack: Two occasions with Bluster. Notable in that the heroes don't want him to be a jerk again because they like him that way (they don't), but because his attempts to help [[HeroWithAnFInGood are so destructive]] that they have to make him a jerk again just to keep him from wrecking the whole island.
** Occurs with Cranky and K. Rool at one point. They both become friends, ending the Kong and croc feud, but their pranks tick off everyone so much that DK, Diddy, Klump and Krusha conspire to make them enemies again.

** Then again, considering Bluster is the director and he hates DK, he appeared to not have any intention to place him as the villain at all until K.Rool's suggestion.
