GonGon is a character in the Super Monkey Ball series. He used to be AiAi's rival but later became his best friend. He is very strong and is training to be the strongest monkey in the world. GonGon is the muscle of the team.
He is present in every Super Monkey Ball game except for Monkey Ball.
Appearance and VoiceEdit
GonGon is an anthropomorphic ape with black, cartoon-like eyes and chocolate-brown fur. He has light brown skin and wore a red tank top with a yellow "G" on the front until Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, in which his tank top became pink with a white "G". He is much bigger than the other members of the Super Monkey Ball team and has a visible short, stubby tail starting in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz.
His voice in earlier games was merely made up of monkey sounds, as well as his speaking roles in Story Mode of Super Monkey Ball 2, where it was just mixed with the same sounds used instead of various sounds of the word "monkey". This was likely used because of his tough and rowdy character.
Role in GamesEdit
GonGon is one of the four main monkeys playable in the Super Monkey Ball series. He aids his friends on an adventure to stop Dr. Bad Boon from stealing all of the bananas in Super Monkey Ball 2 and on an adventure to retrieve the golden bananas from a space gorilla in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz. He is also present in Super Monkey Ball Adventure to help bring back happiness to the 5 kingdoms.
It is inferred by fans throughout the series that GonGon's main love interest is MeeMee. In Super Monkey Ball Adventure, he was shown to have some feelings for Princess Dee-Dee before she officially married Prince AbeABE.
GonGon is the strongest of all Monkey Ball characters. In Party Games such as Monkey Bowling, he is shown to be more powerful than everyone else. In the game Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, he can destroy Bumpers.
