While only a loose adaptation of the games, [[CanonImmigrant a few elements of the show would find their way into the games]], particularly in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'', where Crystal Coconuts are an item (but not a MacGuffin like here), and SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong works as a potion-mixing MadScientist, and Klaptraps now have "dentures."

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The Crystal Coconut can grant wishes, so this topic comes up now and again. The biggest example would be in "The Day The Island Stood Still", where it's played for comedy; DK, about to take a nap, absentmindedly wishes he could sleep ''forever''. The result is time halting...and he can't protect the island if he's napping since the Crystal Coconut also makes DK unable to ever awaken while time is stopped. Made worse when K. Rool, who is awake with the rest of the island's inhabitants, also realizes time has stopped and DK is out like a light...

* BrokenAesop: Subverted. In the episode "Bug A Boogie", Cranky tries to show DK and Diddy that practical jokes aren't fun... by pulling a practical joke on them. However, this actually comes back to bite him when not having DK around due to said practical joke leaves the Crystal Coconut unprotected, fixing the aesop.
* BSODSong: In "Kong For A Day", K. Rool frames DK for various misdeeds, leading to the other Kongs banishing our hero to the White Mountains. There, poor Donkey Kong is left [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtGL5yKdSCk singing about how everything's gone wrong with no idea why.]]

* CanonImmigrant: The Crystal Coconut, and Cranky dealing in potions, as well as the Klaptraps with "dentures".

All the characters (even though Rambi never appeared in the cartoon) were based on their appearances from the second season of this cartoon.

DK goes after the minecart... But ''then'' comes back and just takes the Crystal Coconut with him instead of leaving it with Krusha.

** In the song "Our Love Is Stronger Than a Golden Banana", DK drops a couple of lyrics that come across as... [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything suggestive]]. It doesn't help that he raises his eyebrows at certain parts of the song.

** 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".
** Donkey Kong is never referred to as just "Donkey", even though every other Kong shares his surname. It's always "Donkey Kong" or "DK". Dixie ''once'' refers to "Donkey and Diddy", but that's it in two seasons.
* IOweYouMyLife: In the episode "Get A Life, Don't Save One!", Bluster becomes DK's lackey after a life-saving experience. This doesn't go unnoticed by K. Rool, who comes under the paranoid impression that DK and Bluster are collaborating in some sort of plot against him. He subsequently has Bluster kidnapped in an effort to uncover whatever their "scheme" is, and in doing so inadvertently subverts the usual "master stages a disaster for the slave to save them from" stage of the trope. When Bluster doesn't show to save DK from a malfunctioning airplane, DK is forced to save Bluster once again from K. Rool's lair. Afterward, Bluster cuts off the debt himself, declaring that looking after DK's hide is more trouble than it's worth.

** King K. Rool in "Kong For a Day". He manages to frame DK for various incidents, isolating him from everyone and ultimately resulting in being banished. Although DK is brought back in time to foil K. Rool, in the end DK's friends still think he did all of that, with nobody aware that this was all K. Rool's doing.

He knew full well biting Diddy Kong would spread the disease, yet he did it anyway. He also clearly was enjoying Donkey Kong struggling with his SadisticChoice between saving his best friend or the island. The threat of the island being blown up could have been prevented, but Polly held his tongue [[EvilIsPetty because K. Rool insulted him, and for no other reason.]] While K. Rool does choke-hold him into spitting out the cure, and Cranky's hologram startles him into dropping the Tim-Banana-Tu, he still gets away with all of this in the end.
