King Kong is the name of a fictional giant ape from the legendary Skull Island , who has appeared in several works since 1933 . Most of these bear his name, and include the groundbreaking 1933 film , the film remakes of 1976 and 2005 , and numerous sequels .

In the original film, the character's name is Kong -- a name given to him by the inhabitants of " Skull Island " in the Indian Ocean , w Kong lived along with other over-sized animals such as a plesiosaur , pterosaurs , and dinosaurs . 'King' is an appellation added by an American film crew led by Carl Denham , who captures Kong and takes him to New York City to be exhibited as the " Eighth Wonder of the World ". Kong escapes and climbs the Empire State Building (the World Trade Center in the 1976 remake) w he is shot and killed by aircraft. Nevertheless, "it was beauty who killed the beast", as he only climbed the building in the first place in an attempt to protect the lead female character Ann Darrow . (In the 1976 remake the equivalent character is named Dwan.)
