Sounds good to me because that's the good name of an arcade game from 1980s.

I always thought that.
Why is he called "Donkey" if the character is actually a monkey...?

Anyway... Great drawing. Lovely style :aww:

Late reply but it's because of an error in translation and cultural dissonance between the west and Japan. The Japanese developers wanted him to be called something that means "Stupid Ape". In Japan comparing someone to a donkey means to call them stupid as well as stubborn. And of course Kong is a reference to apes. Thus they thought Donkey Kong was a good fit. Of course that only works in Japan. In the west the name was translated literally to Donkey Kong erroneously but the same stuck. I wouldn't have it any other way.

XD I love his expression. Perhaps he's upset because Nintendo went with a gorilla instead of him.

I never understood why Donkey Kong was a gorilla/ape and not a Donkey.
But your artwork give it meaning.
Would be even funnier if it was a Donkey with asian features (Last name Kong as in Mr Kong)

He was called Donkey Kong because it's translated from "Stubborn Gorilla" in Japanese to English, which is what Miyamoto wanted to call him.
