** Even the NES version was infamously lacking, omitting the 50m stage and some cutscenes and animations. ''Donkey Kong: Orignal Edition'' is essentially an authorised GameMod reinstating some of these elements into the NES version while keeping it's own bells and whistles, leaning it more as a PolishedPort.

* PortingDisaster: The Intellivision version with its blocky graphics, limited number of screens, and terrible controls. So bad that it was purposely blocked from being played on the updated Intellivision II by its hardware. Carl Mueller Jr. created an updated version with better graphics, more screens, and even additional characters you can play as.

* TheScrappy: Kiddy Kong is not really well-liked, no thanks to his rather ugly design, being another MightyGlacier (thus shelving Donkey Kong for the second time in a row) and having little personality of his own besides being a baby. No wonder he has never shown up in another game ever since ''Donkey Kong Country 3''.

** Candy Kong isn't exactly popular either, given mixing a fan service female with an ape [[UncannyValley didn't create an appealing design]] for many fans. Her high strung characterisation in the cartoon didn't help either.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Nintendo's tendency to reduce Donkey Kong back to sub franchise for the ''Mario'' series, especially after Rare's departure (see DorkAge below). Some believe it strips away Donkey Kong's new found identity as an independent series and limits the use of proper ''Country'' series follow ons, while some enjoy playing as Donkey and Diddy in Mario titles and different gameplay genres. At the very least some are [[VindicatedByHistory willing to give the Mario spin offs more credit]] after the ''Donkey Kong Country'' series was revived by Retro Studios.

Added DiffLines:

* CommonKnowledge: Miyamoto confirming that DK was Mario's and Pauline's pet who they abused. [[BeamMeUpScotty What he actually said]] was that he found DK's original design too hideous and frightening, and so redesigned him to be harmless and friendly-looking "Like he was somebody's pet".

** As the more recent games have put him and his race off the spotlight, K. Rool and the Kremlings have become this, especially for older fans. As of this writing in 2017, K. Rool's last major appearance was in ''Mario Super Sluggers'', released ''9'' years ago.

** Cranky Kong and his [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall-murdering]] quips have always been beloved by the fandom, to the point he got PromotedToPlayable in a main [=DKC=] game.

* FollowTheLeader: The game was endlessly ripped off by other Japanese games companies, both straight clones and also variations - one of which, the 3D-isometric ''Congo Bongo'', was foreshadowing-ly made by Creator/{{Sega}}. It also had home version clones, one of which was ''VideoGame/{{Miner 2049er}}''.
