King Kong is a gigantic gorilla-like primate that lives on Skull Island.

Overview Edit

In one of the versions of the story, Kong's species are probably not related to gorillas, though, and are more likely to be related to the extinct ape Gigantopithecus. They probably grew in size to be protected from predatory dinosaurs, such as Venatosaurus or Vastatosaurus rex.

In the 1933 film, Kong's species started going extinct once humans came in, and soon the only individuals left were King Kong and his son, Kiko. While King Kong was shot off the Empire State Building in New York, Kiko was killed due to the flooding of Skull Island.


  • The monster featured in Toho's 1962 classic King Kong Vs. Godzilla differs in all but name from its original Hollywood counterpart. For obvious reasons the Kong from that movie was scaled up to 45 meters, many times larger than either the 1933 or 2005 version. It also gained the ability to absorb energy from electric currents, and its native homeland was called Farou Island rather than Skull Island.
  • Depends on any incarnation, Kong appears to be either a bipedal or a knuckle walking ape.
  • In some versions, Kong could be originated from a fictitious species (Megaprimatus kong in the 2005 remake and an unnamed simian humanoid species in the "Monsterverse")
