Kong Fu is a Kong and a relatively minor character, but an antagonist towards Donkey Kong, from the Donkey Kong Country animated series.


Kong Fu's first and only appearance was in the episode "Kong Fu". Here he was hired by King K. Rool and the Kremling Krew to beat Donkey Kong in the annual Donkey Kong Challenge – a contest to see if anyone could defeat Donkey Kong in three challenges and become the new ruler of Kongo Bongo Island.

Though Kong Fu managed to beat Donkey Kong in the Body and Mind challenges, Kong Fu lost the Heart challenge to Donkey Kong; it seems Kong Fu was afraid of the dark and while Kong Fu was panicking during a solar eclipse, Donkey Kong refused to hit him, showing true virtue and winning the Annual Donkey Kong Challenge.

Kong Fu later forfeited the contest to Donkey Kong after he heard K. Rool, Krusha and General Klump mocking his fear of the dark and calling him a "wuss".


  • Despite his name, Kong Fu probably has no relation to other martial arts based Kongs such as Sumo Kong and Karate Kong, who appeared in the game Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. However, he is similar to them in that they're all Kongs named after martial arts, and they all initially worked with an antagonist against Donkey Kong before being redeemed.
