According to this Wiki, the reason DK isn't hypnotized in Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze is because he is too intelligent. I've done research and he'd have to be REALLY smart if an elephant were hypnotized and he wasn't. But what evidence is there to support that? I've only formulated of two reasons, and I feel that they're unreliable and that there could be more out there. DK is DK Jr's son. In DK Jr. Math, DK Jr. gets extra learning compared to Pink Jr. Kong with the +-x/ exercises. Yeah, pretty sucky. In forewarning I am a novice to SSB an Nintendo's Snake, but when, idk, paired up with DK Otacon will admit that DK is pretty smart, and Otacon himself is a genius. It would also help if I were to know of any difficult puzzles DK has to do; every time I try to research puzzles I get a load of walkthroughs because of the Puzzle Pieces. Anything helps, even proving he's an idiot.
