Kona was a local island god of evil who was believed to cause misfortune to those who disrupted his resting place. His tiki resembled a tiny man in a seated position with no clothes and a head-dress on a large head. When the Skipper dug him up, he suffered a series of injuries and misfortunes and eventually dropped into a depression, believing a great shaman named Watubi was the only one capable of lifting the curse. The Professor eventually recruited Gilligan to impersonate Watubi, and the Skipper got better, forgetting about the curse. Kona, meanwhile, ended up buried several feet under a refrigeration pit.
- Although the Oceanic tribes have a rich mythology of gods and folklore, there is no such god named Kona.
