Cranky Kong character biography
In his youth as Donkey Kong, he was Mario's pet gorilla.
However, after he captured Mario's girlfriend Pauline, Mario caught him and imprisoned him. His son, Donkey Kong Jr. rescued him.
By the time of Donkey Kong Country, he had taken the name Cranky Kong and relinquished the Donkey Kong name.
His grandson, Donkey Kong Jr.'s son, is the current Donkey Kong.
