King Gong was Dr. Robotnik's first robotic creation, a gold-colored ape of massive proportions with a clock embedded in its chest.
Created as Robotnik's first attempt at artificial intelligence, he was powered by a bolt of lightning with the intention of doing Robotnik's chores. The ape-minded King Gong had other ideas, breaking out of Robotnik's lab and rampaging across Mobius, leaving the landscape greatly changed in his wake. After disappearing from Robotnik's knowledge, he made his way to Skoal Island where his creator found him years later. Brought back to Robotropolis, he was sent to attack Sonic the Hedgehog and the Freedom Fighters, but ended up becoming attracted to Sally Acorn. Capturing her, he took her to the top of the tallest building in Robotropolis in an attempt to woo her, but was then sent plummeting to his demise as the Freedom Fighters used their Winged Victory to spray the tower with banana oil.
