The Kang is part of the “Treehouse of Horror XXIII” which is part of the Halloween’s special update for The Simpsons: Tapped Out. This Burns Monster is only available for a limited time and players may get him after completing multiple quests and after unlocking the Mayan God. If you don’t unlock the Mayan God, there is no way to get this character into your Tapped Out city.

How to Get

If you want to get Kang for your Tapped Out city, you must ensure you have placed the Black Hole and see the flying spaceship. Once you see the flying spaceship you need to shoot it down.

To shoot down Kang’s flying spaceship you need to purchase the Ray Gun using 150 Donuts (now 100) then shoot him 3 times directly for his spaceship to crash and be in your Tapped Out city. He will walk off his spaceship and join your city.

Kang has a list of jobs below!

    So how come I have to pay donuts for it when I'm not even earning any donuts at all? I keep earning stupid useless treats from those Mystery Boxes… Plus, 150 is too much anyways, even if I were earning it I'd still have to spend some real money on it, which I believe that should NOT be mandatory but optional.

    What happens after you light the beacon?? Lisa says something about stopping all the zombies but I still need the treats they drop. I don’t want to do this job until I get all my treats but I’m also wondering if we get a ton of treats at once. Anyone try it yet??

    People should read previous posts b4 posting the exact same message…as far as doughnuts being expensive stop complaining if you can’t afford it oh well I’m sure the creators of tapped out could care less …I have all my Halloween items and I’m very happy..put up or shut up

    I’m so pissed! Spent $20 to get Kang and he disappears after the first task?! I want a refund from the game!!!!

    1) charging money for games like this is fine aslong as they aske reasonable prices, $2 for the ray gun wud make alot more money as more people wud buy it.
    2) they are in shop for limited time but wont get taken out of your springfield after halloween (look at tradenations etc)
    3) i expect kang to produce only exp after halloween
    4) the mayan god might go after halloween as he hasnt added anything to the game and hasnt been purchased.

    I shot kangs ship down and then it asked me to make him go on a guest and after he was done he was no longer in my city and it says I don’t have him in my characters. Where did he go?n

    Kang disappeared on me too after one of his first jobs but he came back when I put the wrecked ship & ray gun back in the town from my storage. If you put a building / item in storage that has a character associated with it, that character disappears until you replace the building.

    Kang disappears after his first quest and then you are unable to complete the following quests he is given because it says you no longer have him… Don’t bother spending donuts to get this character unless they fix this fairly big glitch.

      I had this happen to me too, I’ve since fixed it and gotten him back 🙂 have you by any chance put his crashed spaceship into your inventory? If so pull it back out and place it in Springfield he will come back with it. Hope this helps

    • ArmandoZ

      if you go to your inventory you will find a new and old and crashed ray. when you placed the crashed one back in town, Kang will reappear so you can resume activities.

    If you get kang, do he/she disappear after the the Halloween special is done? His/her job list only produces treats.

  16. October 11, 2012

    Uhh.. So is all of the stuff we've made/bought going to disappear after Halloween? I think it would be really messed up to charge so much for stuff they are taking out in less than a month but everything just says "limited time".

    • Chantelle Parker
      October 26, 2012

      Not sure, but I think it just means you can only purchase it for a limited time 😮

    Total bull you have to buy donuts for a “fun” holiday quest. Makes it more frustrating than fun. I can’t afford to spend $20 on donuts in this economy I can’t imagine many can. I loved this app and play it religiously but this stunt makes me want to close it, delete it and never play again.

      I had the same problem, after searching for an answer, I found that you have to keep his crashed spaceship in Springfield, I placed it in my inventory and he went with it 🙁 once the spaceship was put back in Springfield he came right back with it 🙂 hope this helps you too

    Well, I was one of the people who forked over cash for donuts, only to have Kang glitch out on part 2 of his quest chain. 🙁 D’oh.

    It should cost 150 treats! Not donuts, I am not going to spend my $$$!!!

  22. Sydney

    It’s stupid that you have to use donuts for the ray gun when it’s part of the Halloween theme it should cost candy. I really like this game but I’m not spending real money on it. Make donuts easier to get. It’s like you make the game free then you can’t get anything good because it cost so much donuts. You should have just made the app cost a few bucks instead of free if you wanted to make money. I guess they made that game for money instead of trying to please the Simpson fans.

    Ridiculous how much money this game is charging!!! I refuse to spend anymore money. I guess I’ll have to deal with the alien for the rest of the month, no ray gun for me.

    150 donuts? Um, quite unfair, almost rude……… The cost for this gaming experience is getting even more rediculous

  26. Jen Huculiak
    October 10, 2012

    Ya why have treats if you going to charge bloody doughnuts?!

  27. October 10, 2012

    Should make it 150 treats

    • Tigerjo
      October 20, 2012

      Or at least let you use treats to buy donuts…. Especially if they are going to have items disappear after Halloween!

    I got the black hole but now when I place it and it says Collect reward, when I hit the Collect button it crashes! Now whenever I load the game it just comes up with the Collect reward box and I cant get out of it!!!! GAHH!!

    I don’t see the ray gun for sale.

  30. October 09, 2012

    150 donuts… thats about 20 real bucks to complete a *uckin quest. Thats insane… That whole Treehouse Of Horror thing is gone octobre 31st… even if it not would end that would be way to expensive… the gamy is ONLY about getting the players money… and for that its waaaay to lame.

    And also the “Gifts” u can buy and get for everyday playing… i get fences all the time… 6 donuts for 3 fences… yay… or 500 bucks as reward for playing everyday…

    ill stop playing this shi*.

  31. October 09, 2012

    150 doughnut that's too expensive I'll never be able to get it. 🙁
