This Kong design resembles a black-silverback gorilla. The 1933 design also varies between knuckle-walking like a real gorilla and walking in a bipedal and upright like a human, sometimes utilizing both forms of locomotion in the same film.
- The design would actually be redesigned to make the son of King Kong, known as Kiko.
- This is not the only King Kong design that was used for stopmotion, as the ShodaiKongu had one scene that was actually stopmotion during King Kong vs. Godzilla.
- The 1933 design, the ShodaiKongu, and the GoroKongu are so far the only 3 designs of King Kong to be used again in another film or piece of media following their debut.
