the king kong

King Kong is the name of a fictional giant ape from the legendary Skull Island, who has appeared in several works since 1933. Most of these bear his name, and include the groundbreaking 1933 film, the film remakes of 1976 and 2005, and numerous sequels.

In the original film, the character's name is Kong -- a name given to him by the inhabitants of "Skull Island" in the Indian Ocean, where Kong lived along with other over-sized animals such as a plesiosaur, pterosaurs, and dinosaurs. 'King' is an appellation added by an American film crew led by Carl Denham, who captures Kong and takes him to New York City to be exhibited as the "Eighth Wonder of the World". Kong escapes and climbs the Empire State Building (the World Trade Center in the 1976 remake) where he is shot and killed by aircraft. king kong [:

Nevertheless, "it was beauty who killed the beast", as he climbed the building in the first place only in an attempt to protect the lead female character Ann Darrow. (In the 1976 remake the equivalent character is named Dwan.)

Powers and Abilities

Among Kaiju, King Kong is suggested to be among the most powerful in terms of raw physical force, possessing strength and durability that rivals that of Godzilla himself.gru gru...

To make Kong more of a match for his debut in King Kong vs. Godzilla, Kaiju Kong was made considerably larger than the original version and was granted the ability to draw power from electric energy. When fully charged, Kong could even direct this power against his opponents by means of an electric touch attack. This power however was only used in King Kong vs Godzilla and was never used in King Kong Escapes. As one of the few mammal based Kaiju, Kong's most distinctive feature is his intelligence. He's demonstrated the ability to learn and adapt to an opponent's fighting style, identify and exploit weaknesses in an enemy, and is even capable of utilizing his environment to stage ambushes and traps.
