Donkey Kong makes his appearance as the representative of his own series. Donkey is a heavyweight character with powerful and sluggish moves. He is also the largest and heaviest character in the game. This gives his large reach and hard to ring out, but is an easy target for combos and attacks. DK retains the ability to "carry", being able to hold foes on his back and carry them, a trait that would be seen in the rest of the series. In order to compete with the other characters, he has been given unique moves outside of the main series' scope, mostly punching based.
A giant version of Donkey Kong appears in the single player mode, who is so tough the player is assisted by two A.I. allies.

- Donkey Kong and Mario started out as arch-rivals, but they've patched things up in recent years. These days DK spends his time searching the jungle for bananas instead of kidnapping beautiful maidens. In the past few years, other members of the Kong family have cashed in on DK's fame as well, including his favorite nephew, Diddy.
