She first appeared in Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and allowed the player to save their game. In the Game Boy Color version, which allowed the player to save their progress at any time in the game, her role was altered into that of a manager of mini-games.
Candy Kong also appeared in Donkey Kong 64; in this game, she provided instruments for DK and company to use against the Kremling Krew and had on headphones, instead of a bow. She also distracted King K. Rool while Funky Kong fired his weapon at the King at the end of the final boss fight.
She wears a pink T-shirt, a golden necklace around her neck, a black belt, pink shorts, and purple Converse sneakers.
