Lanky Kong is a character from the Donkey Kong series, and is also a popular meme on Miiverse. He first appeared in Donkey Kong 64 as a playable character with the ability to inflate himself like a balloon and stretch his limbs out (just for you). He also returns as a character in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast and as a trophy in Super Smash Bros Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
On Miiverse Lanky Kong is a popular meme because of the practice of "Lankyposting" or simply called "HE", Where a user posts "HE" in hopes of someone else continuing the lyrics of the DK Rap. Lanky Kong is a generally outdated meme but it's still used today on Miiverse. There are also quite a few accounts on Miiverse with Mii names such as "Lanky Kong" or "HE".
How Lanky Posting Usually goes
"He has no style, he has no grace.
This Kong has a funny face.
He can handstand when he needs to,
And stretch his arms out, just for you.
Inflate himself just like a balloon.
This crazy Kong just digs this tune!"
