Cranky Kong is Donkey Kong's father, who is actually the original "Donkey Kong" who was featured in Donkey Kong Arcade as the infamous antagonist(assuming that he is actually the current Donkey Kong's father). This canon is altered, however, in Donkey Kong Country Returns, where Cranky Kong refers to Donkey Kong as his "grandson".

Cranky Kong later appears as his gradually-aged self in the Donkey Kong Country series. He tends to be cranky, as his name implies. But he does help Donkey Kong and friends on their quests. He would have tips about certain levels, as well as items to buy from him.
