[[caption-width-right:320:Kong and his human friends. Left to right: Lua, Jason and Eric.]]
Kong is a genetically-engineered gorilla created by Dr. Lorna Jenkins using D.N.A. from Film/KingKong. Evil scientist Ramon De La Porta wants to use Dr. Jenkins' findings for his own purposes. To stop him, Dr. Jenkins and Kong count on Dr. Jenkins' grandson Jason; Jason's best friend Eric "Tann" Tannenbaum IV; a girl shaman named Lua; and that's just counting human allies.

** Though oddly for no reason in the CGI film she wears shoes. [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks Much to the annoyance of some fans]].
* FusionDance: Jason and Kong do this via the Cyber-Link so Jason can lend his martial arts expertise to Kong and Kong can "ride" inside Jason to avoid the logistics of transporting a giant gorilla around the world. De La Porta and his henchmen use their own Cyber-Link to merge with animals to fight Kong.
* GeneticMemory: Kong sometimes gets flashes from his past life as the original King Kong.
* GentleGiant: Kong fits this trope among the non-humans and the muscular Tann among the humans.

* SpoiledSweet: Tann's parents are quite wealthy and, thanks to the fund his grandfather left him, he can buy whatever his parents won't give him. Despite this, he's a true friend and only mentions his wealth whenever it's needed to help.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Tann can't go a day without a Pineapple Pizza.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Ramon De La Porta. Most people perceive him as a respected college professor.
