Putting the Savage(Worlds) in our Heroes: Donkey Kong

What is this: Man, according to Tommy Brownell  Savage worlds does not! claim to be a universal system. But that’s fine, it just means that the people at Pinnacle are smart and know to now oversell their game. It still fits in my series because the whole point of this has always been to stretch the system and see what it can handle. I’ve decided for some reason to stat the ENTIRE original super smash bros lineup. Today since I’m going through the lineup in order its Donkey Kong. That monkey with a tie.

Remember: You can use this in your savage worlds game. I’m not going to hurt you if you change this, in fact I encourage it.  Follow along with your Savage Worlds Explorers Edition.

Who is DK:  He’s a monkey, and he loves bannanna’s. What do you want from me?

Main Stats:

 Agility: d6

Explanation: Even though Donkey Kong jumps just as much as Mario in his old games I tried to differentiate between the 2 by giving him extra vigor and strength. Cause he’s a BIG ASS APE!

Skills(I’m only writing down trained skills): 

climbing: d6
Fighting: d8
Notice: d4
Throwing: d4

Explanation: Remember he has shooting because of his coconut gun.

Derived Stats: 

Pace: 6
Charisma: 0

Explanation:  See below(and above!)


Greedy(minor): BANNANNA!
Heroic(minor): He’s always saving someone.

Enemy(Major): Ok this is going to come up a lot for these guys. But for DK its King Krool. I think that’s how you spell it.


Brawny: Hes a big Monkey! I shouldn’t have to explain this.

No Mercy: In Smash Bro’s he can charge up a punch. Hopefully this is sort of emulates that.


Coconut Gun: Treat as Crossbow

The end… I think I’m going to try and keep them at around 10 xp. Seems to be working so far.

Rank: Novice(10 xp)
