Super Smash Bros. Max
This page details the appearance of Chunky Kong solely in Super Smash Bros. Max. For information on this character as a whole, see Chunky Kong.


Why have we not seen Chunky recently? I mean, they put Lanky and Tiny in Barrel Blast (albeit that game sucked) why not Chunky. Anyway, you might be tempted to think that he's a clone of Donkey Kong. Chunky does share some things in common with DK, but Chunky's his own, I mean ape.

Special Moves

  • Neutral Special Move:Pineapple Launcher

Description:Chunky takes out his pineapple launcher and fires, but there's more to it than that. You can charge it up like Diddy Kong's Peanut Popgun and like the popgun, if you charge it up too long, the launcher backfires and stuns Chunky. Charge it up to increase flight speed and distance. Also, you can aim it like the Cracker Launcher.

  • Side Special Move:Primate Punch

Description:Chunky's strongest move. It's similar to Captain Falcon's Falcon Punch, but stronger, slower in execution time and has a different button input.

  • Up Special Move:Spinning Kong

Description:Because Chunky's heavier, his variation of the move is less effective in recovery.

  • Down Special Move:Oranges

Description:Throws exploding oranges

  • Final Smash:Triangle Trample

Description:It's Just like Donkey Kong's "Konga Beat", except it's Chunky playing the triangle.

Snake Codec Message

Snake:"Another Kong, man these guys sure are popular."

Otacon:"That's Chunky Kong, He's Dixie Kong's cousin."

Snake:"Are the Kong's all one big family?"

Otacon:"Not really, there are at least three different family groups. Anyway, despite his size, Chunky is actually very timid. He's the heaviest and slowest Kong around. But what he lacks in speed, he makes up for in power. His Primate Punch is extremely powerful. He also has a bazooka that fires pineapples."

Snake:"So he has a bazooka that fires pineapples and Diddy has a popgun that fires peanuts... Do these guys use any inedible ammo?"

Otacon:'They're a bunch of apes and monkeys. What do you expect?"

Note:The three Kong family groups may be Donkey Kong's family, Dixie Kong's family and possibly the evil Manky Kongs(who bear a suspicious resemblance to Lanky).

Fighting against Chunky Kong

There are two good strategies when fighting against Chunky. Personally, I like the "Smash-n-Dash"(that's why I've been suggesting it so much, it's a very effective technique), this takes advantage of Chunky's slow speed. Another strategy is getting in close and not letting up on the attacks. Chunky replaces Bowser as the slowest character and doesn't have a lot of fast moves, so pretty much any character can overwhelm Chunky with their speed. Whatever you do, don't fight him from a distance, as you allow Chunky the full use of his Pineapple Launcher and Orange grenades.
