|Tiny Kong as a teenager.|
Tiny Kong (Japanese: タイニーコング Tainī Kongu) is a recurring character in the Donkey Kong, who first appeared as one of the five playable Kongs of Donkey Kong 64. Following the buyout of Rare Ltd. by Microsoft Studios Tiny Kong received a redesign, with Diddy Kong Racing DS giving her a more-teenage appearance instead of the childish one she debuted with. Despite this, much like how Luigi is the taller, albeit younger, brother of Mario, Tiny Kong is the younger sister of Dixie Kong; she is also the cousin of Kiddy Kong and Chunky Kong.
Like her older sister, Tiny Kong utilizes her twintails in a manner similar to a helicopter's propeller, and this has remained her most-notable trait throughout most of her appearances. Her name, which has since become ironic due to her teenage redesign, initially referred to her small, childlike form and her ability to shrink to a microscopic size; this ability, as well as her agile movements in Donkey Kong 64, served as the basis of her verse of the DK Rap played in the game's opening. Like all of the playable characters from Donkey Kong 64 Tiny Kong was also associated with an instrument in this title, with her playing the saxophone.
While Eveline Novakovic voiced Tiny Kong in her debut appearance, Kahoru Sasajima has since become Tiny Kong's official voice actress starting with her appearance in Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast. Sasajima also voices Dixie Kong, and also voiced the character of Kass in the aforementioned title.

- Though Tiny Kong was described as Dixie Kong's younger sister in Donkey Kong 64, this detail was left out of the Japanese release of the game and has not been mentioned since Microsoft purchased Rare Ltd. Additionally, as Tiny Kong's teenage redesign created for Diddy Kong Racing DS was a decision made by Nintendo and has been the only one used since, these familial ties may have been retconned.
