Planet Dodonpa is a planet ruled by King Kingo and Queen Ringo, who are Bongo's father and mother respectively. The Dodonpa residents are highly addictive to curry made with special curry spices, eating it every day.
In Planet Dodonpa's first and only appearance, King Kingo got something sharp stuck in his throat and were unable to remove the sharp object, even with the help of the royal doctors, making him unable to eat curry. This resulted in the council placing a ban on curry consumption, so that the Dodonpas may feel the same pain as King Kingo. In order to remove such sharp object, King Kingo must eat a fruit from the unique cough drop tree, obtained from Planet Rekoreko's oasis.
Places of interest
The royalty palace is where the king, queen, and several other important figures live in. According to Bongo, the palace is extremely large to the point that, when he was a child, he got lost for a week, even when 3,000 residents were searching for him. Bongo managed to survive by finding a group of bandits.
The market place, according to Bongo, is usually bustling around with a huge crowd of people. At the time the Jetters arrive at Planet Dodonpa, the stores are closed, and the vicinity was deserted, presumably due to the ban on curry consumption.
