Choy is an Asian sailor who worked as a cage/item storer at the SS Venture.
|Age||30s or 40s|
Voyage to Skull Island Edit
He is best friends with Lumpy and seems to accompany him everywhere. He also shows Jack Driscoll to his accommodation in the storage area of The Venture (where Captain Englehorn normally keeps captured animals). He brags to Jack that Englehorn can make a lot of money from capturing exotic creatures such as the "white rhino" and so on, before being halted by the appearance of Englehorn himself, who puts a temporary halt to Choy's seemingly talkative nature.
He seems to look up to Lumpy for guidance, and as an authority figure. This is shown by the fact that Englehorn criticizes him for not putting away the chloroform properly, and he justifies it with "Lumpy said-" before having to be reminded that Lumpy isn't in charge of the ship, thus showing that he values Lumpy's word and instructions over what Englehorn (the legitimate figure of authority) says.
During the voyage, he is seen singing and playing the ukelele. He watched as Jimmy and Ann danced to the music and applauded them when they finished.
Piranhadon Attack Edit
His dependency on Lumpy is reinforced by the extended edition of the swamp scene. A huge fish emerges, capsizing the raft that Choy and fellow sailors are on. Choy resurfaces, looking panicked, and Lumpy automatically shouts to him: "Choy! Swim you f***ing bugger!" He fails to do so, and Lumpy is forced to jump into the water and rescue him, showing their close bond.
Log Shake Edit
He eventually dies in the Log scene. Kong Kills Hayes and Jack gave the order to shoot and kill Kong. All the sailors open fire but Kong is merely irritated by their bullets, grabbing the log they stand on and shaking it, causing the crew to fall into the deep cavern below. Choy loses his footing and calls to Lumpy for help, clinging to the side of the log. Lumpy tries to save Choy but Choy falls to his death in the chasm below.
Insect Pit Edit
Later, Lumpy can be seen sadly lying next to his friend's body. He still clearly feels a deep sense of loyalty to Choy and is saddened by his death, to the extent that when the Carnictis' attack and attempt to eat Choy's body, he becomes enraged. He begins punching and kicking them with his bare hands to keep them off, before attacking them with a machete and killing several. He could have retreated closer to the others for protection but did not do so, instead choosing to defend Choy's body and being eventually overwhelmed and killed by the vile beasts as a result. Choy's body would then be eaten as well.
Post Mortem Edit
When Denham presented Kong on Broadway in New York, he dedicated the show to Choy along with the others who were killed on Skull Island.
