Character description

Diddy Kong is Donkey Kong's nephew and is the main character in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Diddy Kong Racing. He has a girlfriend named Dixie Kong.

In Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong hires Diddy to guard his banana horde from people who might want to steal it. Overhearing this, King K. Rool sends an attack on Diddy, who is tossed in a barrel and thrown into the bushes. Donkey Kong soon finds and frees him, and the two set out on an adventure to get the bananas back. In the game, Diddy Kong was used either for two player mode, or as a sort of level continue. As long as either Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong were alive, a life was not lost. The missing teammate could then be retrieved by breaking open a barrel with the letters DK on it, similar to the one Diddy was initially trapped in.

Since his debut, he has appeared in many games, ranging from those in the Donkey Kong universe, like Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, to those in the expanded Mario universe, such as Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Strikers Charged.

Diddy Kong is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, available to play as from the beginning. He uses many unique special attacks, such as his Rocketbarrel Boost, and Peanut Popgun attacks, both of which are used in his Final Smash, the Rocketbarrel Barrage. His small size and lack of power, combined with the use of weaponry offer a completely different fighting style than Donkey Kong, despite their alleged familial relation. Diddy Kong is the first character created by a European company (Rare) to be playable in the Super Smash Bros series. Due to the strategic use of his banana peels, great comboing potential, good agility, a powerful down air Meteor Smash finisher, and an overall imperessive amount of tournement wins, he is currently in the A tier at the very high 3rd position on the official Tier list.
