King K. Rool (pronounced Kay Rule or Kuh-Rule depending on the media) is a corpulent and savage crocodile who is Donkey Kong's archenemy. He also longs to have the Crystal Coconut because he believes it will make him the richest man in the world. Of Donkey Kong's various nemeses, he remains the most iconic, and has recently roared back after years of irrelevance.

In YouTube Poop

He's the main villain in the Donkey Kong Country TV show, in which DK is obviously the hero. This version of him is what gets used the most, particularly some of his musical numbers (lower right). King K. Rool became a prominent figure in YouChew culture through his cartoon depiction, especially the "One of Us" song, which was blared on the forums quite a bit throughout 2010 and 2011.

Personality

He is very fond of lies and fibs, cheats and steals, and his treacherous villainy makes him squeal. He is a croc of many faces, with his alter egos including a captain and a mad scientist.

He is pathetic as a king, constantly trying and failing to steal the Crystal Coconut. He has, however managed to steal the Kongs' bananas, despite his species not even eating bananas.

Irrelevance and Renaissance

One of King K. Rool's grand ambitions in life was to get into Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Apparently, he was excluded because of his hatred of news, calls and tyranny before tomorrow, and his refusal to return the Banana Cream Pie when DK asked for it.

After being passed over for Brawl, K. Rool had a rough decade. While Donkey Kong Country returned in 2010 with, uh... Donkey Kong Country Returns, Tiki Tong and his minions have taken over K. Rool and the Kremlings' spot in annoying the DK family. Reports indicate that K. Rool was so occupied in pleasuring himself with bananas in the Captain's cabin of the Gangplank Galleon that he missed his audition to be the final boss in Donkey Kong Country Returns. By the time he noticed this, it was already Christmas, far too late.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U came in 2014, and once again saw K. Rool passed over for a playable spot. With Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze once again eschewing K. Rool, this time in favor of Arctic baddies, K. Rool's hopes of clawing back into relevancy seemed in despair.

However, King K. Rool retained his devout fanbase, with his character oozing considerably more personality than subsequent Donkey Kong villains. His legion of mean and green scaly sheens seized the opportunity provided by the Fighter Ballot, which was a means of requesting a character you wanted to see playable in Smash. Nintendo finally figured out the demand for K. Rool, and in August of 2018, he was finally announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a playable character. Whether or not it propels him back into mainline Donkey Kong games remains to be seen, as there has not been a new Donkey Kong game since his Smash debut.
