Though not specifically stated in the DKC series, it could be speculated that the villainous Manky Kongs used to be members of the Kong Family. They could have been kicked out of the family for being too mischievous. As a result, they could be described as "Kong reject orangutans". They are drastically different in appearance from the Kongs, but because of their name, they may be former members.
