DK Isles are a group of islands in the territorial waters of the Kong Island. It is the main setting of the Donkey Kong franchise since Donkey Kong Country.
After Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land, the main island of the archipelago, which is Kong Island, serves as a compass to other islands. The example is on Northern Kremisphere, Banana Fairy Island, Sun Sun Island and Secret Seclusion where are territorial lands from DK Island waters.
Other islands that are neighboring the archipelago as Crocodile Isle and Timber Island are under rule. The Crocodile Isle was ruled by K. Rool in his dictatorship and the Timber Island is ruled by Timber's parents. After the DK: Jungle Climber and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, a number of islands were shown far from the archipelago where there are many different inhabitants or bases of operations for Kremling Krew in some from them.
The name is mentioned by K. Rool in Donkey Kong 64 where the archipelago was under threat from him during the arrival of the artificial island with a powerful weapon called Blast-O-Matic.
Donkey Kong 64
- “The once idyllic Kong Isle now has an unpleasant neighbor in the form of K. Rool's massive mechanical Crocodile Isle. This monstrosity towers over our homeland, withe the ridiculously named Blast-o-Matic device ready to reduce it to rubble. Between them, these two contrasting islands conceal the entrances to all the levels.”
