A Kong is a unique anthropomorphic species consisting of various different primates including apes or monkeys, they are capable of speech and constructing houses. The Kongs willingly wear clothes and some even have hairstyles. The term "Kong" is also generally used to describe the primate species, it's not a surname. For the most part, Kongs all live on Donkey Kong Island. However, Kongs that are not affiliated with the Kong Family live in other lands, such as The Fruit Kingdoms, Sun Sun Island, or the Mushroom Kingdom. The Kongs are often plagued by the crocodilian Kremlings.

Kongs have been known to surf, drive, manage museums, and have many more connections to humans.

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong are called Kongs by various characters when they are together. The quintet of the Kong Family in Donkey Kong 64 are called Kongs by Snide.
