"Redneck Kong" as seen, between Cranky and Donkey Kong, in an earlier build of the canceled game Diddy Kong Pilot for GBA.

The character dubbed "Redneck Kong", also known as “Hillbilly Kong”, was an unnamed Kong from the canceled Game Boy Advance game Diddy Kong Pilot. According to a Rare's anonymous employee, "he has been officially killed off and will not be making anymore appearances".
Not much is known about this hillbilly Kong in farmer clothing, except for the fact that he was supposed to be a playable character. "Redneck Kong" seems to be replaced by Candy Kong on the character select screen, as seen in later screenshots of the canceled game, implying that he was removed and replaced in later stages of development. He is not programmed in leaked game builds, as selecting him would cause Diddy Kong to replace him.
