Trivia: Donkey Kong Country

The Video Games

  • The music in the swamp levels in DKC2 has the exact same drumbeat as "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins, which inevitably led to this.
  • Bad Export for You: "Jungle Fantasy", the Japanese OST for the original DKC, contained seven arranged songs, all exclusive to the soundtrack. The OST was eventually released in Amercia as "DK Jamz", though out of all the arrangements, it only contained Jungle Groove, leaving out the other six songs (two examples).
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The original DKC trilogy was removed from the NA and PAL Wii Virtual Console services for reasons known only to Nintendo, meaning the only way to get copies of the game is finding either the original SNES cartridges or the GBA remakes.
  • Trope Namer: This series is the trope namer for:
  • What Could Have Been: Cranky was meant to be a lot nicer during development of the first game, as seen here. A giraffe animal buddy was planned, as well, allowing DK to climb the giraffe's neck to reach high areas.
    • DKC2 has some sprites of Diddy and Dixie mourning, which have been Dummied Out. They seem to have been meant for when they lose a bonus game, rather than the screen freezing in the actual game.
    • The Puftup enemies in DKC2 were planned for DKC1.
