Character Description

Diddy Kong is a hyperactive spider monkey who is Donkey Kong's nephew and appears as the main character in multiple of Donkey Kong's games such as Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest and Diddy Kong Racing. He also has a girlfriend named Dixie Kong. He always wears his red, trademark hat with the Nintendo logo on it. In Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong hires Diddy Kong to guard his banana horde from people who might want to steal it. Eavesdropping this, King K. Rool sends an attack on Diddy, who is beat up and tossed in a barrel and thrown into the bushes. Donkey Kong soon finds and frees him and together, they set on a journey to find the missing bananas. Since then, Diddy Kong has appeares in many games, ranging from those in the Donkey Kong series, to those in the expanded Mario series.


Diddy Kong is a quick, medium to light weight character. He is capable of crawling and wall clinging. Many of his attacks have good speed and have decent power to back them. His killing power is low due to his low amount of finishers and rather weak smash attacks. This relies Diddy Kong in using lots of Meteor Smashes in order to KO more easily. He has two projectiles; the Peanut Popgun and the Banana Peel, which has major advantages, such as avoiding grabs and throws. Diddy Kong has a very impressive aerial game due to his extraordinary Meteor smashes and spiking abilities. Diddy Kong also has very good recovery by virtue of his Up Special Move and his Side Special Move, which allow him to fully recover vertically and horizontally respectively. In spite of his many benefits, Diddy Kong's effectiveness changes depending on the stage he fights, as his Banana Peel is less effective.
