King Kong is a giant ape, and the last member of his species. They are not native to Skull Island, but it is presumed that the species Gigantopithecus, a prehistoric gorilla that was bigger than modern apes, came to the island via an ancient land bridge linked to Asia many thousands of years ago.


Name

The name King Kong consists of two words: "King", and "Kong." Kong most likely comes from the German word Koing, meaning king. The name literary means "king of kings," as Kong has been shown to be more powerful than any animal that attacked him. The natives of Skull Island called King Kong by "Kong", "King" was given to him by Carl Denham and his crew, who brought him back to New York City.

Appearance

Megaprimatus' appearance was like that of an ordinary gorilla, except they were much larger and stronger, regularly growing to heights of over 18-25 feet. As in most gorillas, their fur was a dark black, with the hair on the heads and backs of the older males turning greyish-silver, hence the term 'silverback'.

As do all gorillas, these creatures also walk when their knuckles are assisting them. Since they are required to support weight worth tons, these knuckles are extremely durable and thick, having the ability to stand almost any pressure.

History

In the original film, the character's name is Kong, a name given to him by the inhabitants of Skull Island in the Indian Ocean, where Kong lived along with other over-sized animals such as snakes, pterosaurs and dinosaurs. 'King' is an appellation added by an American film crew led by Carl Denham who captures Kong and takes him to New York City to be exhibited. Kong escapes and climbs the Empire State Building (the World Trade Center in the 1976 remake) where he is shot and killed by aircraft. However, "it was beauty killed the beast", as he only climbed the building in the first place in an attempt to protect Ann Darrow.

Trivia

  • King Kong was considered to be in Godzilla: Unleashed.
  • Some of the German releases of the Showa era films changed the names of various unrelated characters to King Kong. For instance, both Jet Jaguar from Godzilla vs. Megalon and MechaGodzilla are called King Kong in the dubs. However, unlike what many people believe, they aren't stated to actually be the real King Kong wearing robot suits or confusion with Mechani Kong. The name 'King Kong' carried great marquee-value, and this is likely the reason why the German distributors changed the names around.
