Gongon is one of the main characters in Super Monkey Ball. He was once AiAi rival and now AiAi friend.

  • The Ace: He seems to be good at every Party Game like Monkey Bowling.

  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Despite him being the strongest, he's shown to actually care for his friends.
  • Butt-Monkey: In the first Super Monkey Ball, that is, especially in the endings. It wouldn't be under Monkey Ball 2 where the ape got the same level of attention as the other three.
  • Gentle Giant: He might act tough at times, but GonGon is a really friendly guy with a gentle and loving heart.
  • Grumpy Bear: Although, he can be usually seen as this.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He was AiAi's arch-rival in the first Super Monkey Ball, but becomes a part of his team in the later games.

  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to AiAi Sensitive Guy.
