|Swanky Kong in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble|
|Debut||Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest|
Swanky Kong is Donkey Kong Island's local game show host. He has run a variety of minigames over the years.
Swanky Kong first appeared in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, where he ran a Bonus Bonanza game show in various areas of Crocodile Island. In this game Swanky wore a 70's-style get-up, complete with an afro. In the GBA remake, Candy Kong also appeared as his gorgeous assistant, and he would also appear to charge the Kongs when they rechallenged bosses.
In the original version of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, Swanky ran Swanky's Sideshow, a chain of target-hitting minigames house within circus tents. He was also redesigned with the get-up of a carnival barker. However, the Game Boy Advance version retconned that Swanky had ended Swanky's Sideshow prior to the game. Instead, he had a series of Virtual Reality centers known as Swanky's Dash, with a Banana Bird as the prize to the lucky winner.
- A Swanky's Sideshow tent along with an advertisement for some game called the "Donkey Cannon" was seen on Donkey Kong's field in Mario Superstar Baseball.
- Swanky's sprite is based directly off of Donkey Kong's, leading to speculation that they are brothers.
