Top nine of most far-fetched, ridiculous headcanons

Little did I know that when I started this blog, that theories and brain blemishes would actually have a name; headcanon. Like canon, except in your head. Allow me to explain: Canon means the creators said so. Example? Canon: DK wears a tie with his initials. Headcanon: he received the tie from Cranky on his 15th birthday. Headcanon is a nice word, too. Rolls off the tongue much better than fantalk, which was derived from the less-than-polite word fanwank. Capiche?

Let's be said that I have a lot of headcanons. A bit... too much, maybe. I don't feel much for rewriting older articles, though. Like Funky Kong once said: "I can barely tell rewrite from rewrong anymore!"

Anyway... let's get to it, shall we? In no order at all. It should be known that most of these are not very serious. Also, I dunno if it's still necessary, but spoilers for Donkey Kong Country Returns!

DKC in Japan

So yeah, thought it was time for just another silly blog post. I will contemplate stuff, but mostly ramble. Ahem... I have been working on a new header, so expect to see that soon, too. Whenever I'm not lazy, at least. So, instead of complaining about things, I will probably complain about things. Wait...

Recently I have been obsessed with the Japanese language for some reason. Mostly because Donkey Kong, because hey, when have I ever obsessed about something else? (That was a rhetorical question.) I've gone out of my way to memorize how to say 'I love Donkey Kong' in the language, frequent Pixiv for fan art and surf around on the web for more tomfoolery like that. I am beginning to appear like a weeaboo. But alas...

The Donkey Kong Country TV show appears to have a much bigger fanbase in Japan than it does elsewhere. I've seen many wonderful pieces of fan art but what really amuses me is that I mailed one of those people who does fan art like that, telling them that their art was awesome, and I got a really polite and grateful mail back. That was, like, so cool. But alas, one thing that differs; it's never been established that K. Rool, Kaptain K. Rool, and Baron K. Roolenstein are the same people, so most of the fanbase sees them as brothers. This also explains how Super Smash Bros. Brawl does the same.

But one thing I love is that they love the show as much as the games. I often feel like I am the only one with that mindset.


And with that, I'm off again.

Donkey Kong Land III

(Sorry for my inactivity! I have a lot of articles waiting to be published, but they're either very old now or require some fine-tuning.)

Yup. Donkey Kong Land III.

I got this game a while ago from a good friend of mine 'cause she didn't play it anymore, and only recently got to play it. (finished it in the same day, too.)

Obviously, it's like Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! in many ways, such as how it stars Dixie and Kiddy on their adventure through the Northern Kremisphere in search of the... Lost World?! Where's DK? Wasn't he ape-napped?

Suited for success

What began as only this;

is actually going to be a full-fledged cosplay project from myself.


Cheesy as it sounds, I am going to desert the idea of walking around with only a cape and make a King K. Rool fursuit.

A fursuit? At least I will attempt to. This will be my first endeavor in something like this, but I've read enough tutorials.
Foam will be used. A lot. Because K. Rool is fatty mcfatfat.

Well, this was the second sketch for the head and as by some wonder it's coming along nicely.

WiP photos will be shared ASAP.

The truth behind my logo

You know that logo of this little site, don't you? It says BeJungle'd! in bright, silly letters. I'm not going to post it here 'cuz it's right there. *points up*

But what is a funny thing to know, the odd-coloured letters are actually symbolizing something... each of them, no less.

B is for Brambles. A very well-remembered part of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Well.. maybe not so much. But they're pretty characteristic.

E and L are for Game Over. You know that game over screen in the first DKC game, with DK and Diddy all beaten up and the font all messy? Yeah.

J is for Palm Trees. C'mon, they're everywhere.

U is for Crystal Coconut. A very important plot point in the animated show is the Crystal Coconut and since I like the show as much as the games I thought of this.

N and G are for vines. Also an useful part of the games. I mean, they had an whole area named after 'em; Vine Valley.

E is for Dirt. It's a jungle, and a jungle is dirty. Duh.

D is nothing at all. I just had no good ideas left.

...Yeah, filler article. Sorry about that.

Kremlings - the definitive classification

One of my headcanons dictate that Kremlings are actually mammals that happen to look like reptiles.

Well... mostly.

Obviously, they're meant to be reptiles. But I'm a nerd and I think these things through too much. I mean, c'mon. I have a lot of theories to make sense of it. SO here goes nothing.

There will be talk of mammaries in this article.

1. They're actually warm-blooded.

A lot of kritters and maybe a single krusha hop/strut around in the icy peaks of Gorilla Glacier, in the first game. The second game had krunchas walking about merrily in K. Rool's own personal ice storage. And let's not forget the skiddas around the K3! A reptile wouldn't last in those icy areas for more than an hour.

Not to mention they run around for little reason nearly all the time. Real crocodiles lay about in the sun all day, only moving to eat or mate, being dependent on warmth to survive. Kremlings usually also spend time playing video games and running after crystal coconuts, among other frivolous pastimes.

That, and King K. Rool clearly blushes in shame, in the episode Just Kidding.

A whimsical fairy tale gone wrong

One game that has ever stayed in my mind as the best game ever, is Banjo-Kazooie.

This game was released on the Nintendo 64 and as soon as it came out, it blew people's minds. It was rumoured to be a game that would rival the immensely popular Super Mario 64 by a mile. But it did more than that for me. It exceeded it.

By more than a mile.

One of my most cherished art works. I believe it shows my love for the game and the relation between the two main characters quite well. (BTW: Kazooie's diving after  Banjo after he got knocked unconscious.)

Banjo-Kazooie appealed to me more than any other game did. First, it was about anthropomorphic animal characters. I always adored animal characters playing main roles in anything (which, undoubtedly, made me to be a furry later on, which I only discovered a month ago.)
