The character Donkey Kong, as he appears in Donkey Kong Country Returns

Donkey Kong is a series of video games by Nintendo. It stars the titular ape sometimes as the player's character, sometimes as the main villain (Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong 3 and Mario vs Donkey Kong series) and sometimes as the distressed character (Donkey Kong Jr., Donkey Kong Country 2). In some episodes the character only has a supporting role, or doesn't even appear, and the main role is taken by another Kong.

The first game in the series, simply called Donkey Kong, came out in arcades in 1981 and starred a carpenter named Jumpman, later known as Mario, who would later become the star of his own game series.

Video games

This list includes every known Donkey Kong game, for a total of 30 different episodes, and 13 remakes or compilations, making a total of 43 different releases. The list does not count separately re-releases of single games, considered different "versions" of the same game, nor games outside the Donkey Kong series that include Donkey Kong games (such as the Game & Watch Gallery games). Also Diddy Kong Racing is not included because not being titled "Donkey Kong" is considered a series on its own.

Links to other series

Note: this list also includes cameos of Mario as hero of the game Donkey Kong, while cameos of Donkey Kong as a Mario Kart character will only be listed in the Mario series' page. It's not included every time in a TV show somebody says "It's on like Donkey Kong", that being a pop culture expression no more connected with the series. Also it's not included every time a game, or any other media imitating a game, features a character throwing barrels or other rolling obstacles, being an element common to videogames and not necessarily a reference to Donkey Kong.
