With the Monkey Flip, Diddy Kong somersaults forwards, in a way that can be used for returning to the stage area. The move also has two offensive purposes. The first of these is where Diddy Kong can latch onto an opponent, and then either hit them, or jump off of them. The other means of offense through this move is by pressing the attack button while Diddy Kong is somersaulting, where he will stretch into a kick.
Monkey Flip is unique to the Super Smash Bros. series; Diddy Kong does not use the move within any Donkey Kong games.
