  • The name "New Donk City" is based on a real-life location named New York City.
  • Many of its notable locations are named after characters and elements from the Donkey Kong series.
  • The level is similar to the City level from the Game Boy version of Donkey Kong Country
  • Its nickname, "The city that never leaps", is a play on New York City's nickname, "The city that never sleeps".
  • New Donk City is a throwback to the original Donkey Kong arcade game and implies that the events of those games occurred there, as noted by Pauline's presence and the many construction sites that dot the city.
