So then why is he called Donkey kong?
Because in the first game he appeared in,he was supposed to be stubborn as a donkey, he was a gorilla so the name "kong" got stuck to him because of the movie king Kong.
You just got learned!
Shigeru Miyamoto, the character's creator, used the English word "donkey" to evoke the animal's stereotypical stubbornness. (There was no translation error; the game has the same name, "Donkii Kongu", in Japan.) "Kong" is because, in Japan, "King Kong" has become a generic term for any large ape.
Thus, Donkey Kong is a stubborn large ape.
