- His answers are pretty funny and creative.
- In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, he hosts Swanky's Sideshow, and Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong can do ball games for prizes.
- He makes a cameo in Donkey Konga 2, as his artworks from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! appear as a badge of Swanky Kong.
- His games are pretty cool and nice looking, down to being different in the games.
- His designs are nice and pretty cool looking, despite his face looking like Donkey Kong, for Swanky Kong at least.
- "Give them a big hand folks! Good evening, I'm Swanky Kong and you're tonight's contestants on my Bonanza! It's easy to play! Just pick a game and you're away!"
- Outside of his cameos, he had been absent until The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
- In The Super Mario Bros. Movie, he is shown in the audience of The Great Ring of Kong, but in the film, he isn't for some reason.
