Dixie Kong (ディクシーコング, Dikushī Kongu) appears as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros. V. She is a hidden character in the game.

“Dixie Kong is a character from the Donkey Kong series. She is Diddy Kong's girlfriend and Tiny Kong's older sister. She is also cousins with Chunky Kong and Kiddy Kong. Her first appearance is as a sidekick in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Aside from games, Dixie also appeared in the Donkey Kong Country cartoon and in two comics.

Dixie Kong appears in almost all Donkey Kong games and in some Mario spin-off titles. She is playable in almost all of the games she appears on. Dixie was the first female Kong to be playable, although Candy Kong was the first female Kong to appear in the series. She was also the first female character in the Mario series to star in her own game; she starred in two games even before Princess Peach got her own game. Dixie has appeared in seventeen games and is playable in fifteen of them.”

Dixie is confirmed to have no alternate costume. Dixie is voiced by her voice actor in her games, Kahoru Sasajima.

  • Floaty

  • Hair can be used as tether


  • Lightweight

  • Floaty

  • Orange Grenade can be used against her


Dixie Kong in terms of attributes is just a bit slower than Diddy Kong. She’s also just a bit more floaty as well. However, her jump is higher. She can wall cling and jump just like Diddy. She may be slower than Diddy but she’s still faster than other characters. Her hair is a very reliable feature which can be used as a tether, give good grab range, damage opponents, recover, and also reflect projectiles.

Dixie is a lightweight character meaning of course, she dies to attacks earlier than heavier characters. The fact that she’s floaty can also be a negative as her landing is more predictable. Her special, the Orange Grenade which is very powerful can also be used against her as it can be grab by opponents and once do use it, it can affect anyone but them, including Dixie. Dixie is a solid character. She plays very much different from her boyfriend, Diddy Kong, although some regular attacks more or less may be similar.

Special Attacks

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Gumball Dispenser Gun 10% (clean), 8-5% (late) Dixie shoots a gumball from her Gumball Dispenser Gun. It does more damage with immediate contact and bounces on the ground but loses power as it travels. Excellent move for gimps.
Alternate 1 Bubble Gum Popgun 3-9% Dixie Kong shoots a wad of gum from her Popgun. The longer Dixie charges the attack, the farther and quicker the wad of gum will fly. Also at the highest charge without overcharging, the gum does 9% and traps opponents in the sticky substance for a short amount of time. If Dixie overcharges the attack, however, it will cause a very powerful explosion as the gum covers Dixie instead.
Alternate 2 Bubble Gun 12% (contact), 15% (explosion) The Gun always shoots a large gum bubble that moves around slowly before popping. It also pops on contact with an attack, projectile or enemy.
Side Special Hair Spin 5%, 1.3% (reflected projectiles) Dixie spins in the direction inputted using her hair for unlimited duration. She can damage opponents with slight knockback and it can be used to slowly recover onto the stage horizontally. The spinning can also send projectiles back.
Alternate 1 Powertail 1% (grab), 2% (spin), 9% (throw) Dixie extends her ponytail and uses it to grab opponents, then spins and throws them behind her. It KOs much later. It can also be used to grab ledges and throw projectiles right back, at the same speed and damage however.
Alternate 2 Monkey Flip 17% (clean), 12% (mid), 8% (late) Dixie Kong hops backwards, and can perform a flying kick forwards with another button press. Can't grab however.
Up Special Haircopter 4% (hit 1), 1% (hits 2-8), 4% (hit 9) Dixie spins her hair and moves upwards in a similar fashion to Link’s Spin Attack. She can’t use it on the ground, however. It sucks opponents in and does average-high knockback.
Alternate 1 Squawk Lift The animal buddy, Squawk, appears to lift Dixie up for quite a long distance. Dixie can attack right out of it but she can also be hit right out of it as well.
Alternate 2 Bongo Boost 16% Dixie Kong uses her racing bongos to boost upwards. The explosions do damage.
Down Special Orange Grenade 2% (contact), 15%-12% (clean explosion), 1% (chunks) Dixie rolls an orange forward that blows up at a random time. Those caught cleanly with the explosion take high damage and knockback. When it explodes, chunks of orange fly in all directions. It can be picked up and thrown again by anyone but it’s probably not recommended.
Alternate 1 Melted Banana 4%-10% Chargeable. Dixie throws a melted half eaten banana forward. At low charges it simply damages opponents with small knockback half the time tripping. At the full charge it has the potential to break shields as it takes quite a lot of shield if shielded. Can be reflected.
Alternate 2 Hair Tornado 1% (hits), 1.2x damage (reflected projectiles) Works very similar to Meta Knight’s tornado with the exception of the fact that it has to be held, can’t be used for leverage, and it releases immediately. She can move from side to side and it reflects projectiles but she can still be attacked through it.
Final Smash Double Trouble Barrel Barrage 1% (grab), 5% (barrels), 10% (final barrel) Tiny Kong appears and grab the opponent closest to Dixie. It then switches to a scene in which that opponent is seen trapped in sticky gum laying on the ground in what appears to be a jungle area. Dixie and Tiny proceed to drop multiple barrels on the opponent. Then to finish Dixie uses her ponytail to throw a much larger barrel down towards the opponent that does more damage and sends them flying. Dixie and Tiny proceed to high five each other.
