Relevance to the Donkey Kong series

Donkey Kong is a heavyweight default character. He retains all of his moves and attributes from Brawl with some minor changes, such as the Hand Slap being usable in midair, and his dash attack (dashing kick) was changed to a new move, the Barrel Roll from Donkey Kong Country, among other balancing changes. Aesthetically, DK gains some new color swaps and has more exaggerated facial expressions. His Final Smash, Konga Beat was made easier to perform with the help of a visual guide on when to press the "A" button alongside the music.

There is an amiibo of Donkey Kong, which was released alongside the Wii U version's release.

Diddy Kong

Diddy Kong returns from Brawl with all of his basic moves intact, and with a few adjustments to his special moves. For instance, his Down Special, Banana Peel, is now limited to deploying only one banana. Additionally, his Rocketbarrel Boost recovery can now be aimed more freely. Also, the Peanut Popgun's explosion from overcharging now has a damaging area. He is still considered to be among the best characters in the game. His Final Smash, Rocketbarrel Barrage, is unchanged aside from the fact that after the move is finished, Diddy is no longer helpless.

There is an amiibo of Diddy Kong, which was released alongside the Wii U version's release.

Palutena's Guidance

Donkey Kong:

  • Pit: Looks like it's me vs. DK.
  • Palutena: His arms are like tree trunks, so his attacks are incredibly powerful. Given his size, he also moves quite quickly. Combine that speed and power with his long reach, and you've got an opponent who's good at almost everything!
  • Pit: Yeah... except for dressing himself. That necktie really doesn't leave much to the imagination.
  • Palutena: True, but it is his signature look. It's probably best not to mention it.
  • Viridi: Yeah, you wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one of his Giant Punches or smash attacks! When he attacks you, don't use your shield. Just get out of the way, and then counterattack.
  • Palutena: And watch where you come in for a landing!

Diddy Kong:

  • Pit: Oh, look! It's Diddy Kong.
  • Viridi: He's Donkey Kong's little buddy.
  • Pit: Wonder if he'd let me win for a banana.
  • Palutena: Don't underestimate him just because he's a monkey. He's faster and stronger than any human.
  • Pit: As long as he can't fly, I'm good.
  • Palutena: He can't fly, but he does have a Peanut Popgun and an inexhaustible supply of peanuts to shoot at you.
  • Pit: So? I love peanuts!
  • Palutena: Not when they're pelting you in the face.
  • Pit: I don't know. Still sounds pretty good to me.
  • Viridi: Oh, Pit! What WON'T you do for a snack?
  • Palutena: Fighting does take strength.
  • Viridi: Anyway, if you can hit Diddy Kong at just the right angle, he'll drop his Rocketbarrel Pack.
  • Palutena: However, it explodes when it lands on the ground, so watch out.
