    Candy Kong (Donkey Kong Country TV series)
    "Donkey Kong! Anytime you show up, things always go wrong."
    Gender: Female
    Type: The Mean-spirited Side of Candy Kong
    Age: TBA
    Species: Kong
    Portrayed by: Joy Tanner
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: Donkey Kong Country
    First appearance: Donkey Kong Country

    Candy Kong is a character of the Donkey Kong series created by Rare and owned by Nintendo. She is the first female character seen in the series while Dixie was the first playable one in the series as of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest. She is also mh:greatcharacters:Donkey Kong's girlfriend. She is an employee of Bluster Kong. Sadly, she wasn't that great, was flanderized, and really bad in the Donkey Kong Country TV show series. She was voiced by Joy Tanner.

    Why She Was Not Our Candy Kong

    Note: This doesn't apply to her video game counterpart whatsoever.

    1. To start off the point of this character, her design looks nothing like her video game counterpart; she looks more like an African American than her in-game design.
    2. She constantly gets mad at Donkey Kong when it's not his fault. For example: Bluster Kong threw a cake at her and she blames Donkey Kong for it. For another example: Diddy Kong slammed a cake in her face because he thought she was the Candy clone, but when he realizes that she was the real Candy, he runs away scot-free, and DK gets the blame and gets the cake slammed in the face by Candy.
      • She once accused Donkey Kong of taking a banana cake without any evidence for it. (Though she wouldn't believe in him anyway because DK started to blame it on Diddy Kong.) In other words, that makes Donkey Kong a scapegoat.
    3. This version of Candy also showed off a very quick temper.
    4. She sometimes gets no comeuppances for her actions, making her a karma houdini.
    5. She's just another mean girl stereotype as she blames Donkey Kong for nothing and/or acts rude to him.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. She is sometimes nice to Donkey Kong.
    2. Joy Tanner did an okay job voicing her.
    3. Similar to Dixie Kong, she was a much better character in the Mario and Donkey Kong games.
    4. She can be actually admittedly funny and likable at times.
    5. Her and Donkey Kong's song, "Our Love is Stronger Than a Golden Banana", is beautifully composed.


    • Since Candy's hair is drastically different to its appearances in the games and the cartoon, it's speculated that Candy's hair isn't real and that she wears wigs.
    • The show's most late prolific writer who committed suicide in 2017, Erika Strobel, wrote in an online post that she hated Candy Kong, saying "her weird design made me cringe" and "she looked like a burn victim".
