First Appearance Konami Wai Wai World

Bosskonger (ボスコンガー,   Bosukongā) is a King Kong-like mecha created by Konami that first appears in the 1988 video game, Konami Wai Wai World.

Name

Bosskonger's name is a combination of boss, written in Japanese as bosu (ボス), and King Kong's Japanese name, specifically kongu (コング). This is most likely due to Bosskonger being one of Konami Wai Wai World's final bosses, and its intended visual similarities to King Kong.

Design

Bosskonger's overall appearance is similar to that of Mechani-Kong, however with a multitude of differences. Bosskonger's entire body is colored a dark gold color with some red accents. It has an extremely King Kong-like head with red eyes, a bulky torso with small wings attached and a built-in jetpack, relatively long arms with missile launchers for hands, and no legs with wires hanging from within its thigh sockets.

History

Konami Wai Wai World

Bosskonger is the final boss of Konami Wai Wai World's fifth stage, called City Stage. After Bosskonger is defeated, the player acquires a key to set King Kong free from his imprisonment.

Abilities

  • Bosskonger's integrated jetpack allows for it to achieve sustained flight, and is seen exclusively doing so.
  • The missile launchers mounted at the end of Bosskonger's extremities fire guided missiles.

Unless Toho was a co-producer on the game, this is less an official King Kong monster than just a tribute / parody character.

Konami had the rights to King Kong to include his likeness as well as Mechani-Kong in Konami Wai Wai World. Said rights expired by the time they made a 2006 mobile port and therefore all traces of King Kong had to be replaced.

Toho doesn't own Kong. They never did. They had the rights to use Kong at some point, but it wasn't permanent. Also, the rights for Kong are such a mess in general, that its simply easier to say that Toho doesn't own him.
