Super Kong is a character who greatly resembles Donkey Kong in Donkey Kong Country Returns. He greatly resembles Donkey Kong, however his fur is white and he has a blue tie instead of Donkey Kong's red one. Super Kong only appears in Super Guide mode, and his role is similar to Luigi's main role in New Super Mario Bros. Wii (in Super Guide). If the player loses eight lives in a level, the Tutorial Pig will appear and ask the player if would like to activate the Super Guide. If the player chooses "Yes", Super Kong will complete the level for him. Like in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, as Super Kong makes his way to the goal, anything he collects such as Bananas will not be counted towards the player's total. Super Kong does not access any secret paths that will lead him into hidden parts of the level such as Bonus Levels. All of his powers are the same as Donkey Kong's abilities, including his Power, Speed, Defense, and Stamina.
- One of Donkey Kong's color schemes in Super Smash Bros. Brawl is similar to Super Kong, however, that color scheme has Donkey Kong's tie being red instead of Super Kong's blue tie. It has been mentioned that the choice for Super Kong's blue tie instead of a red tie was because of the sunset, smoke, or fog levels such as Sunset Shore, which have Donkey Kong in silhoutte. Therefore, Super Kong's tie was required to be blue, as the only thing shown in those sunset, smoke, or fog levels so that the player is not confused of who the character is.
