Chunky and the rest of the DK crew

Chunky Kong is a heavy-set gorilla, weighing in at over 2,000 pounds. Despite his brawny build, he acts somewhat cowardly and childish, and is one of the many playable Kongs in the game Donkey Kong 64 for the Nintendo 64. Chunky is the older brother of Kiddy Kong, and cousin of Dixie Kong and Tiny Kong. He was freed by Lanky in the level Frantic Factory, allowing him to join the others in their fight against King K. Rool. He is also very afraid of heights, and demonstrates this fear in a number of ways, such as when the player selects him in the barrel, he gets scared, shakes his head 'no', and tries to convince the player to choose Tiny Kong instead (although, when not highlighted in the 'select spotlight', strangely he is shown to be more enthusiastic about being selected).

Chunky in the DK Rap

His weapon is the Pineapple Launcher, his instrument is the Triangle Trample, and the potion enables him to do Hunky Chunky; turning gigantic and invulnerable for a short period of time. His special ablities include the Primate Punch (which unleashes a very powerful punch which can smash down some doors and walls), his Burp Skill (in which he releases a giant belch and pats his stomach), and Gorilla-Gone (turning temporarily invisible). He can carry boulders and other heavy items that the other Kongs cannot carry. It should be noted that it was Chunky, with a combination of the "Hunky Chunky" and "Primate Punch" abilities, who defeated K.Rool in the last boxing match in Donkey Kong 64.
