Minkeys are small monkey enemies that appeared in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III. They appear in two stages; Barrel Shield Bust-Up and Sunken Spruce (GBA version).

History

Donkey Kong Country 3

Minkeys often appear in groups on the sides of tree trunks and try to hit the Kongs by throwing large acorns in a horizontal path. They don't directly target the Kongs, but the acorns are still dangerous since the Minkeys throw them at the same time in regular intervals. The acorns break upon hitting the opposite side of the tree trunk. The Kongs may either avoid the acorns by dodging them, or by hiding behind Barrel Shields.

Donkey Kong Land III

Minkeys reappear in Donkey Kong Land III, and in this game, their acorns don't fly a horizontal path. Instead, their height decreases after they've been thrown.

Trivia

  • There's a possibility that Minkeys may also be Kong family rejects, similar to Manky Kong.
  • The name Minkey, as well as Manky, are simply bastardizations of the word monkey.
  • They physically resemble gibbons and white chimpanzees.
