Shovel Kong (ショベルコング Shoberukongu?, 44) is a Mechaevolution Beast of the Tailed-People Clan Jashinka Empire, combining attributes of a shovel and a gorilla
Shovel Kong initially was used for a scheme by Chimera to disrupt phone lines by digging them up to be cut by the Jashinka forces. However its main scheme was to assist in the creation of "Magma Bombs", developed from volcanic magma and with the ability to melt and destroy whatever they touched when flung by the Mechavolution Beast's giant shovels. The plot, though, was being watched by two perspectives, both by the Dynaman and by the Dark Knight (who had disguised as an old man to protect a girl living in the mountains near the Jashinka development site). After Dan destroys the Magma Bomb factory, the team faces Shovel Kong and its remaining Magma Bombs, the team use their Dyna Rods to stun it before destroying it with New Super Dynamite.
After growing via the Big Bang Beam, Shovel Kong uses boulders and its shovels to strike Dyna Robo. The team use a "Tornado Spark" to strike it and then finish it with Lightning Gravity Fall.

Modus and Arsenal
Shovel Kong's main attribute is its possession of shovels for its right hand which it uses the shovels both for digging as well as to fling objects a far distance. The Magma Bombs it was assisting in development would have been its main long-range weapon when completed; after undergoing the Big Bang Beam, it also shows it can fling boulders with the shovel.

Behind the Scenes
- Amazingly though the previous season had an entire corp of mecha called "Kongs", only one was "gorilla" themed, but it was used as a mecha by Octopus Mozoo; thus making Shovel Kong the first actual giant gorilla since the end of that season to actually have the "Kong" name.
