Cameo appearances and references

Rare, developer of the Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land series, brings Donkey Kong to the N64 for an adventure so big, it requires the N64 Expansion Pak. All hope of a consistent storyline is shattered when the curmudgeony Cranky Kong, introduced in DKC as DK's grandfather, calls DK his "son."

One of the Golden Banana challenges (and later, the Rare Coin challenge) in Frantic Factory requires you to beat the first four stages of the original Donkey Kong arcade game. You'll play the same four stages for the Rare Coin challenge, but the difficulty is increased.

After you beat DK's Barrel Blast challenge, a lever in front of the arcade machine on the bottom floor will appear. As DK, pull the lever to play an exact replica of the 1981 arcade classic.
