Definitely An Italian Plumber

Killed Donkey Mong  

Donkey Mong is an ultra rare monster that spawns in the Bullymong areas of Eridium Blight [MAP]. You will enter this area automatically during a story mission. He looks like one of the common Bedrock Bullymogs, but throws explosive barrels at you.

Donkey Mong has only one single spawn point, however, he spawns very rarely. He can also spawn at any time of day. Take note that you do not have to do any special requirements to make him spawn.

lmao...this game looks very promising. i got burnt out on the first one, i'm ashamed to say. mainly because of the underdome though, not the actual game itself lol.

if you remember there was also a Super Mario Bros Achievement in the first game where you had to jump on your enemies head to kill it(which meant winding its health down first then jumping on its head)

@3 Yes that cheevo was called My brother was an italian plumber or something. So technically this is the 'sequel' achievement ;P

@#4 I was wondering the same thing.

@#5 'Mong' is considered an offensive term for someone with down's syndrome.

@9 I don't know what site you got that information from but SCOPE was the name given to the spastic society after the word spastic started being used as a derogatory one. Thus the word mong came about instead I suppose

@18 there not copying dang man. There putting characters in there for u to stop and be like whoah wait I remember that! Not hey lets make money off of someone elses idea. Its called parody not copying. Its just something people put in games just for a laugh, as a shout out, a thank you, for fun, or just as an easter egg bro

Saturday, September 22, 2012 @ 04:19:05 PM

Just killed him in the southeast corner of Eridium Blight. Did it once while in a vehicle and it didn't unlock so I reloaded and did it again on foot and it still didn't unlock. Achievement must be bugged or something.

Comment #34 by bettawithtoast
Saturday, September 22, 2012 @ 08:35:12 PM

Just got it on my 2nd try. Seems like it has a activation spot on it's back that you must activate with the X button before you kill him. I'm playing as a Commando so I threw out the turret and ran behind him in attempts to jump on his back and I couldn't jump high enough to land on it's head. But when I landed I seen the activation symbol flash on the screen, I pressed it and later my turret killed him and the achievement popped. Hope this helps. If I had the motivation to do it, I'd make a youtube video. So maybe one of you guys can cash out on that hard to get achievement.

Sunday, September 23, 2012 @ 03:59:50 AM

We found him after leaving the final boss fight. Got in our vehicle, started driving and my friend shouts "look its donkey mong!!! kill him for the achievo!!!"

also yet another achievo that wont check off for my list. wtf.

Comment #36 by Avenged Sevenfold
Sunday, September 23, 2012 @ 03:32:49 PM

You all who can't get achievement are probably killing king kong, not donkey mong.

Comment #37 by foobz001
Sunday, September 23, 2012 @ 10:09:34 PM

I am new to this but having a hard time finding him and have watched the videos on where he is at. If someone can jump on and maybe give me a hand it would be great tag foobz001 new to x box live so in need of some good people to show me the way.

Comment #38 by DeadAtTheScene
Monday, September 24, 2012 @ 01:25:00 AM

Killed him twice in the south east corner of Eridium Blight. With guns, not vehicle. No achievement. Double checked the name was DONKEY MONG. Grrr...

Comment #39 by SiickxPanda
Monday, September 24, 2012 @ 09:17:21 PM

@37 Southwest Eridium Blight. He spawns at random. So if he's not there after killing the bullymongs save/quit and drive back to that area until he spawns.

Monday, September 24, 2012 @ 11:52:54 PM

I found King Mong countless times with a friend and I never came across Donkey Mong. I attempted it in a solo game and King Mong spawned again. I quickly disposed of him and all of the bullymongs near the Hero's Pass and sure enough Donkey Mong spawned. Gl all.

Comment #44 by Neptune500
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 @ 11:57:57 AM

Ok i finally got him. I didn't have to hit his back or jump on him or anything weird to get the Achievment. All i did was kill him and it popped. I got out of my car first just in case it wouldn't register in a car. And he DID NOT spawn where "King Mong" spawns. I came in to Eridium Blight, got a car and killed everything between "Hero's Pass" and "Ore Chasum". I had to kill a "Bad Ass Rakk" too, not sure if that means anything (like some sort of trigger). So after everything was dead i saw him south of the road near Ore Chasum. Hope that helps out.

Comment #45 by Samigi
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 @ 04:24:20 PM

I have found an easy way for him to spawn almost every time. From the spawn point drive the long way to ore chasm then once you get past ore chasm, stick to the left wall and head to where Donkey Mong should spawn and while you are still driving by the left wall he should jump out of the sky right in front of you. Hope that helps.

Comment #46 by physicist88
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 @ 06:07:21 PM

I was trying for a while to get this with no luck. Then I read on another site that in order for him to spawn, you need to blow up the turret and kill any Hyperion robots at the gate just before you enter the area with all the bullymongs and rakk. I tried that and at first, I didn't see Donkey Mong. I drove along the highway towards the exit to the Boneyard and then driving back towards the gate, I noticed Donkey Mong at the fork in the road heading up to Mal, so I killed him and got the achievement.

Comment #47 by guan_yu
Wednesday, September 26, 2012 @ 04:48:11 AM

If somebody can confirm cuz I really don't know but I don't think you can get this one in play through 1 if you have beat the game. You will need to either get it in play through 2 or get it with a different toon. Unfortunately I think the same goes for finding & killing Jimmy Jenkins cuz I have run through the wiled preserve & Opportunity where I found the most Hyperion loot midgets & haven't seen one since I have beat the warrior.

Comment #48 by guan_yu
Wednesday, September 26, 2012 @ 05:55:08 AM

Well scratch that I found Donkey Mong I had to go into ore chasm & then exited right out ran to where he was supposed to be & there he was. Unfortunately still don't know about Jimmy though.

Wednesday, September 26, 2012 @ 03:24:02 PM

You can get him on playthrough 1 after beating the game. I know you said you did find him, just clarifying for anyone else who asks. I literally just did this.

Comment #51 by Mvpx R3APER
Wednesday, September 26, 2012 @ 03:58:57 PM

ok i just got it, there is 2 spots he will spawn. 1 near the robot wanting to be a human and the other is near the road going to sawtooth. u can use a car to kill him cuz i just used the truck and ran into him.

Comment #52 by lanimal
Thursday, September 27, 2012 @ 01:19:27 AM

Quickest way I got it was to pop in and out between Ore Chasm and Eridium Blight. Just make your way past Mal's front gate and you'll catch a "wall sphincter" just out front and you should see him come out there. If not just turn around into Ore Chasm and come back out again until he appears.

Comment #53 by sleepingrhino
Thursday, September 27, 2012 @ 02:05:53 AM

Thanks "Ianimal" I'd been trying forever and could never seem to get him to spawn. I mean like 20 times, tried your way and got it on my 4th attempt. Thanks again

Comment #56 by daquijones
Friday, September 28, 2012 @ 05:10:27 AM

For those having problems maybe you can try clearing your cache and then reloading your game. I spent literally hours going back and forth. Every time I finished a mission I would fast travel to Eridium Blight and he was never there. Cleared my cache then loaded it up and he just appeared right where he was suppose to.

Comment #57 by Shakenbacon8033
Saturday, September 29, 2012 @ 11:09:40 AM

#52 is totally the way to get this! Got it my first try after coming back into eridium blight from the ore chasm. Super easy!

Comment #58 by em0rox
Saturday, September 29, 2012 @ 02:31:56 PM

@ post #1 if you meant getting all the underdome achievements in the original it was VERY easy... I just started a game where players could join and went to work. People would join, do a few rounds, leave... More people would join lalala wasn't long before I had all the achievements. I did the same thing for all the panties/bobbleheads/etc I just hid behind something during the minac fight and let the exploding claptraps rack up the items all day...

Comment #61 by GAlVlOVER Xl
Wednesday, October 03, 2012 @ 04:22:23 AM

@48 You should find Jimmy Jenkins as you progress through side quests, precisely I found him in the arid badlands - Boneyard behind the area you spawn into, up an elevator and you open a box and he jumps out, this was during a mission I got from sanctuary. Although I don't know for sure if the area he spawns is completely random?

Comment #62 by LL13JCS
Wednesday, October 03, 2012 @ 10:33:59 AM

His spawn is completely random although I think he is more likely to spawn in some areas than others.. He jamp out of a locker (not a box or a chest) in the wildlife preserve..oddly the game glitched and the locker he jamp out of was green and purple (everything else including the lockers besides the one he jamp from were normal)

I did see Donkey Mong about an hour ago..killed him using the achievement, must have to get out and kill him instead of firing from a vehicles turret.

Comment #63 by cam91191
Thursday, October 04, 2012 @ 10:24:07 AM

No. 52's method worked on my 2nd attempt!!!!! :D :D :D go in and out of ore chasm, walk forwards a bit down the road and look to your left at the massive brown cliff, Donkey Mong should just randomly appear on the wall and jump down. Tried other methods literally about 50 times, and this worked on my 2nd. so happy right now! :D

Comment #64 by sniper mantis
Friday, October 05, 2012 @ 07:02:24 PM

Got this chevo soon as I got to eridium blight...on the map there is a big bridge on the map in the middle, I crossed it and then turned right and saw a hole pumping out purple gas, went over to it and he spawned...wore him down with the turret on my vehicle, jumped out, gunzerked, killed him and chevo popped :D

Comment #66 by GAlVlOVER Xl
Monday, October 08, 2012 @ 02:40:27 AM

Tricky achievement as you may misread 'king kong' for 'donkey mong', don't ask it happens sometimes, they are two different enemies so you may find them both next to each other (as I did) or just 'king kong' alone, but donkey mong always spawns near king mong it's just there's a % chance of his appearance, so, keep checking when you're in the area, or save&exit then rejoin the gam if you're having a hard time.

Comment #67 by FoAngel
Sunday, October 14, 2012 @ 08:32:47 PM

I found king mong near the arid nexus entrance and donkey mong was up a little further near some bullymongs. So they do spawn close together, but I did kill king mong first before finding donkey mong so I dont kow if that has anything to do with him spawning close by or not

Comment #70 by Skellinator
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 @ 03:46:15 AM

If anyone has any trouble finding him or getting him to spawn I have a method that worked first time for me. When you spawn straight away in Eridium Blight, instead of getting to the place through the Hyperion doors, go all the way round through the Skag Scar and round the road and approach the area from behind and it gets a much higher chance of spawning him. I have no idea why but it works, happy hunting folks! :)

Comment #71 by lingenfelser
Sunday, October 28, 2012 @ 11:24:25 PM

Comment #73 by emmaline
Thursday, November 01, 2012 @ 02:28:54 AM

I had a hard time getting Donkey Mong to spawn also. I tried quitting out of the game (or going to other locations) and coming back to Eridium Blight, going in/out of Ore Chasm, going clockwise/counter clockwise, etc. Nothing seemed to work. I, too, encountered King Mong countless times but Donkey Mong was very elusive.

Finally, I tried a combination of recommendations. I shot down all the turrets, loaders & bullymongs in the south area (including King Mong). After clearing out the entire south area, I went to Arid Nexus & came back. I then drove up towards Ore Chasm and finally encountered Donkey Mong.

Not sure if this will help but wanted to share in case it does. Good luck!

I was trying a few different methods many times and then gave up, then on my way to ore chasm to complete level 5 of hyperian slaughter he appeared without me even looking for him. I think he only appeared after I killed the other bullymong and rakk (but maybe not) also note that he appears a bit further down from the hyperian gate, towards the ore chasm entrance. Also, take a look at this map with shows three different Donkey Mong spawn locations. I didnt know he spawned in all three but maybe so.

Monday, April 01, 2013 @ 07:40:27 PM

I tried doing this with a lvl 50 siren true vault hunter mode...nothing, tried at least 10 times (i know not a lot, but im impatient). decided to switch to normal mode, took 3 tries and he finally spawned.

P.S. I used the same method as 52.

Friday, April 05, 2013 @ 11:32:45 PM

i completed all but 2 missons before he appeared for me, only had terramorphus and round 5 of the hyperion challenge to complete, i spent maybe 30 mins after getting round 4 of the hyperion challege just driving around mining the bullymongs for experience and he appeared for the 1st time, i then went to oasis to start the dlcs....

This was a pain for me.. not as bad as jenkins tho! lmwao. sigh. I went in and out from Arid Nexus to Eridium Blight a ton of times and i got nothing. but a little further down, out to the right.. (Ore Chasm?) go through there and back into blight and boom, there he was.

Just look then Save and quit, go back again.. or just leave all the bullymongs if he's not there and run through, travel back and forth like that w/o killing them so they will spawn. just some tips that worked for me n such.
