Diddy Kong is Donkey Kong's buddy and companion along side Amer who has gone on countless adventures with him. He is a creation of the British company, Rare, Ltd.; however, he has a Nintendo logo on his red hat, probably to signify the publisher of the entire Donkey Kong series. The name 'Diddy' is a slang word used in some parts of northern England for 'small', as Diddy is. Diddy has also gone on many adventures by himself and has even starred in his own racing game for the Nintendo 64 and later for the Nintendo DS.

Unable to hold off an attack by a Krusha, Diddy was sealed in a barrel. The next morning Donkey awoke and, realizing his bananas were missing, he found and released Diddy and the two set off to reclaim them and drive the Kremlings off of Donkey Kong Island.

Battle Entrance
Diddy Kong breaks out of a DK Barrel.

Diddy Kong joins the Super Smash Bros. series in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He is swift and agile, and is very acrobatic, just like he is in the DK series. His Final Smash, Rocketbarrel Barrage, combines two of his special moves, Peanut Popgun and Rocketbarrel Boost, together.

Melee or Super Smash Bros., he was mentioned in both games.

For the Super Smash Bros. series, Diddy was given a more realistic monkey voice, instead of his cartoonish voice, which is commonly used in the Mario series titles.

Solid Snake Codec ConversationEdit

  • Snake: Otacon, there's a chimpanzee here wearing a Nintendo hat.
  • Otacon: That's Diddy Kong. He's Donkey Kong's partner. Not only is he lightweight, he can use a wide range of weapons as well. He can fly using those barrel jets on his back, and he can shoot nuts with his Peanut Popgun.
  • Snake: Peanuts? As in the ones in the little shells? Are you serious?
  • Otacon: Wait, here's the best part. You see them lying on the ground after he shoots? If you pick up some of those peanuts, they'll restore your health a little.
  • Snake: Hmm. Edible ammunition, huh... Times sure have changed.

Role in the Subspace EmissaryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.[22][23]Diddy Kong's snapshot in The Subspace Emissary.In the Jungle, Diddy Kong helps Donkey Kong recover bananas stolen from the Koopa Troop, only to have Bowser appear and attempt to use his Dark Cannon on the Kongs. Donkey knocks Diddy away to safety before anything happens, however. At the Lake, Diddy encounters Rayquaza, teams up with Fox McCloud by force, and fights False Bowser, but they end up fleeing from the real Bowser. As they reach the Swamp, Bowser successfully attacks Diddy and clones him into False Diddy Kong. After Diddy is revived, he defeats the clone and teams up with Falco Lombardi, again by force.

Upon discovering that Donkey is being taken to the Island of the Ancients, Falco drops Diddy off in order for the little Kong to rescue him. After receiving help from Captain Falcon and Captain Olimar to fend of the Subspace Army, all four of them end up at the Subspace Bomb Factory. Upon meeting Samus and Pikachu, R.O.B. reveals himself just before they are forced to evacuate the island as it is sucked into Subspace.

In Subspace, Tabuu turns all of the gathered heroes, including Diddy, into trophies. However, Diddy is among the fighters rescued by King Dedede and his team before they all head into the Great Maze to defeat Tabuu and save the world, along with help from Sonic the Hedgehog. Spoilers end here.====Special Moves====

Peanut PopgunEdit

[24][25]Diddy's Peanut Popgun.The Peanut Popgun appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, as an attack for Diddy Kong. It is Diddy Kong's standard special move, and can be charged up. When charged up, the peanuts fired are much faster, and will have a better chance at hitting the opponents. However, charging it up too long is dangerous, as it might explode on Diddy Kong. The attack occasionally releases Peanuts, which can be eaten for a slight health restoral. Diddy Kong also uses two Peanut Popguns when using his Final Smash, the Rocketbarrel Barrage. If Diddy Kong's powers are copied by Kirby, he will also be able to use Peanut Popgun.

Monkey FlipEdit

[26][27]Diddy's Monkey Flip.Monkey Flip is Diddy Kong's Side Special Move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Diddy Kong leaps forward towards the enemy, latches onto them, and begins attacking. B can be used to pummel while latched on, and A can be used to push off of them, knocking them away. As this sends Diddy forward, it can be used in addition to his Up-B recovery as it does not put Diddy into Helpless state afterwards. If Diddy pressed A while performing this move, he sticks a foot out, and will kick the opponent instead of latching on. However, this kick will prevent you from using his Up-B until the next time he lands. By pressing the jump button after latching onto an enemy, the player must jump onto their head and push them downwards which performs a spike. The Monkey Flip can also set up a 'Diddycide' (a term that many professional Smash players use).

Rocketbarrel BoostEdit

[28][29]Diddy's Rocketbarrel Boost.The Rocketbarrel Boost is Diddy's Up special move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Rocketbarrel Boost allows Diddy to fly with only his Jet Pack. Diddy Kong can charge this attack up, and if it is charged, he will be able to fly farther. Tilting the control stick allows Diddy to curve his flight path, allowing him to fly in several different directions. It causes damage to anyone who hits it. However, if Diddy Kong is attacked while flying, he will lose his jetpack, and fall down. The jetpack will then fly away, and has a chance of hitting another player. The Rocketbarrel Boost is also used during Diddy Kong's Final Smash, Rocketbarrel Barrage.

Banana PeelEdit

[30][31]Diddy's Banana Peel.Banana Peel is Diddy Kong's down special move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In this, he brings a Banana Peel out of nowhere, and throws it randomly onto the ground. If opponents trip on the said banana peel, they will take a minor amount of damage. Although up to two banana peels can be on the ground at once, if there are any more, they will disappear. Diddy can use this move, even if he's already holding an item.

Rocketbarrel BarrageEdit

[32][33]Diddy's Rocketbarrel Barrage.Rocketbarrel Barrage is Diddy Kong's Final Smash, in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It utilizes both the Peanut Popgun and Rocketbarrel Boost attacks, from Donkey Kong 64, and fuses them to create a very powerful attack. When the Smash Ball is collected, Diddy Kong gets his Rocketbarrel Boost out, and holds two Peanut Popguns. He then continues to fly around the entire stage, with the player being able to control him. Pressing the attack button will cause him to shoot explosive Peanuts at the opponents. When they hit a player or the ground, they explode with a large blast radius, devastating anyone hit. However, any Peanut that doesn't hit a player will open up, and reveal a Food item, which can be eaten to restore health. When time is up, the Rocketbarrel explodes, hurting anyone nearby. It does not hurt Diddy, however.

Canceled AppearancesEdit

Diddy was to star in both Diddy Kong Pilot and Donkey Kong Racing as a main character and a sidekick, respectively, but these games were canceled before they could be released when Rare moved over to Microsoft.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Diddy Kong shares several traits to a Spider Monkey. He has brown-colored fur; while his face, ears, hands, feet, belly and belly button(In the original Donkey Kong Country he had no nostrils or belly button) are exposed, showing Diddy's pale skin. He has versatile feet, and a prehensile tail, which he uses most of the time to hold certain small items or also hang on objects. Diddy Kong's face is somehow similar to Donkey Kong; however, Diddy has big eyes and a less frowned space between the eyebrows, covered in fur, as opossed to DK's. His ears are a bit big, the same size of his eyes. Diddy's eyes are actually black, although in certain games, as Diddy Kong Racing for the Nintendo 64, reveals that Diddy has blue. On the other hand, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, shows that his eyes are brown.

Diddy's clothing consists of a red cap showing the logo of Nintendo on its front, and a red tank top, with yellow Stars on it. In Donkey Kong Country, an alternate Diddy's clothing was a yellow tank top and a yellow cap. It appeared when two players wished to play independently. In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest Diddy Kong appeared with another alternate costume as well. In the sequel, Diddy wore a purple costume. For the recent edition of Super Smash Bros. series, Diddy has a wider selection of alternate color costumes. In Mario Strikers Charged Football Diddy wears an armor, protecting him against hazards set in the game. He wears a pair of wristbands, shoulderpads, and a cuirasse over his tank top to protect his chest. The armor is mainly yellow, but it turns to purple in case that his opponents wore a similar color scheme.

Relationships with Other CharactersEdit

  • Diddy Kong also starred in Nintendo Monopoly. He costs $260, and took the role of Ventnor Avenue.
  • It is likely he has more different colored hats, according to Mario Golf: Advance Tour[citation needed].
  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Solid Snake refers to Diddy as a chimpanzee. However, chimpanzees don't have tails.
  • Ever since Diddy Kong began appearing in the Mario spin-off titles, Bowser Jr. also appeared with him. However, for some odd reason, while Bowser Jr. does appear in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Diddy is completely absent from that game (however he does appear only as a character costume for the player's Mii). Likewise, while Diddy is playable in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Bowser Jr. is absent from that game (unless players count the trophies and stickers as appearances).
  • Diddy Kong appears on Mario Kart Wii Trading Cards as a normal and foil card. On the back of his card, there is a description of him but with a spelling error saying "...he his one fun driver", instead of saying "...he is one fun driver".
  • In Mario Strikers Charged, Diddy changes colors against the most opponents, only using his Yellow (and red) outfit against Luigi, Waluigi, Yoshi and Peach.
  • Diddy Kong's creation as a character by Rare contributes to why he is both an intellectual property of both it and Nintendo. During Donkey Kong Country's original development, Rare designed Diddy Kong as an updated look for Donkey Kong Jr. However, Nintendo hated the extreme changes that Rare made to Donkey Kong Jr. They asked Rare to keep Donkey Kong Jr. the way that he was or to make a new character out of their reincarnation. Rare decided, ultimately, to make a new character, and thus, Diddy Kong was born.[citation needed]
