Krong is a supporting character from the 2000 AD strip Judge Dredd. He was a gigantic robot gorilla used by crazed murderer Kevin O'Neill in order to attempt to evade justice in Mega-City One. O'Neill (the curator of the Movie Special Effects Museum) was a fan of monster movies who was angry that the giant robot monsters used in them were being left to rust, as people preferred the "dream worlds" brought into their apartments by the company Sensor-Round. He therefore used the giant robot monsters to kill Sensor-Round's top executives. Krong started climbing to the top of Sensor-Round's building but was decapitated en route, falling off and landing on his demented controller. Krong's remains were supposedly destroyed by Judge Dredd, which was actually rather a shame as you can never have too many gigantic robot gorillas.
Luckily, he was reconstructed in order to be placed in the Judges' Black Museum, and years later, when a maniac created mobile robot cityblocks and turned them against the city, Krong was reactivated by Justice Department and led a squad of giant robot advertisements against the rogue blocks. Once they were pacified, the robot blocks were led out into the Cursed Earth where they and their inhabitants were resettled, with Krong to guard them.
A second Krong was later built on the banana plantation Krong Island, which was run by augmented apes.
