Big Chunky in water

Chunky Kong after entering his Hunky Chunky barrel and growing big, as seen in the game Donkey Kong 64 for Nintendo 64.

Hunky Chunky is Chunky Kong's signature ability in the game Donkey Kong 64. By entering a barrel with his face on it, he will become giant as long as his Crystal Coconut stock lasts, enabling him to deal with stuff such as battle for example.

This ability can be unlocked in the level Frantic Factory at Cranky Kong's Lab for three Banana Coins.

Chunky also uses this ability in the final boss battle against King Krusha K. Rool; when the Kremling King is bouncing all across the ring, Chunky must first use his pad called Gorilla Gone, then the barrel will appear in the middle of the arena, and using it will allow him to become giant and mega punch K. Rool.

This power-up is only permitted within the boundaries its barrel is located and when this power-up is needed, as a red "no"-sign will appear and shrink him back to his normal size if he goes beyond the boundaries of this power-up.
