“Monkey See, Monkey Doom!”
    —Fling Kong's official catchphrase


Fling Kong is a monkey who is one of the core Air Skylanders in Skylanders: Trap Team.

Background

Personality

Fling Kong is no stranger to battle, but he prefers a little life of peace. He is committed to his training and is willing to do whatever it takes to fight for what is right.[1]

Biography

As a royal protector of the legendary monkey idol Kubla-Wa, Fling Kong trained seriously in the mysterious art of Monk-Ru, a form of fighting using the power of air. He was a devoted student, always the first to arrive to training and the last to leave. One day, a troop of foul-smelling, well-armed Gorilla-Goos appeared, led by the infamous General Snot. Snot had heard stories about the idol, particularly that it was made of solid gold. The villains quickly seized control of the temple that housed the idol and were on the verge of taking it. But suddenly the smelly gorillas found themselves face to face with Fling Kong – who attacked with the power of a true Monk-Ru master! Using his flying rug and powerful vortex discs, he expertly defeated the Gorilla-Goos and saved the idol. Soon after, word of his actions spread to Master Eon. Now a Skylander, Fling Kong knocks the wind out of evil throughout all of the Skylands!

Story

Champions

Fling Kong, along with Trail Blazer and Fist Bump in Issue #4

Fling Kong, along with Fist Bump and Trail Blazer, were the final opponents in the Legendary Tournament. The trio of Skylanders mocked and discouraged Déjà Vu, who made it to the Finals, by claiming that she was out of their league and that the finals were only for Skylanders who can "handle heavy combat". As the final round began, Fling Kong teamed up with Fist Bump and Trail Blazer to defeat Déjà Vu, not wanting her to win so that they can be only ones left to battle for the champion title amongst themselves. In the end, all three Skylanders underestimated the Magic Skylander, who used exploding duplicates to surround Trail Blazer, Fist Bump and Fling Kong and knocked them out. Déjà Vu is crowned the new Legendary Champion, and Fling Kong apologized to her for his behavior along with Fist Bump and Trail Blazer.

Rift into Overdrive

Fling Kong, Head Rush and Stealth Elf were one of the Skylander teams that searched for Kaos after his escape from his Traptanium prison three months ago. Onboard Sharpfin's ship, they were ambushed by Dark Drow and nearly consumed by a rift created by Kaos's Sky Eater.
