Board 8 Wiki

Who is Diddy Kong?[]

Diddy Kong is the overenthusiastic, adventure-loving nephew of Donkey Kong. When the Kremlings stole DK's bananas, Donkey and Diddy spring into action to get them back. Later, Donkey Kong himself is kidnapped by Kremlings, and Diddy rescues him with the help of his girlfriend Dixie, who in turn has to rescue him when he and DK are both kidnapped later on. He is captured again along with the Golden Bananas, but is soon rescued by DK and helps to retrieve the Golden Bananas.

He is also an accomplished racer, starring in the popular N64 title Diddy Kong Racing and later appearing in the Mario Kart series, and occasionally participates in other sports as well. He became a playable character in Super Smash Bros Brawl, and his enthusiasm is on full display during his appearances in the Subspace Emissary, where his behavior tends to annoy Fox and Falco.

On another note, a Board 8 poll named Stickerbush Symphony, originally from Donkey Kong Country 2 and thus most closely associated with Diddy, as the best song in Brawl. So at least he's got that going for him.

"Only one thing worse than a bruised banana... a bruised butt." - Diddy Kong

Contest History[]

Win-Loss Record: 0-1

Summer 2008 Contest - Division 4 - Third Group

Diddy was expected to be strong in his contest debut, and it was debated whether LFF from Captain Falcon would be enough to allow Alucard, whose best days were behind him, to slip past the superior Diddy Kong. Um...right. LFF doesn't do that type of damage--and can it really be called LFF if the one who's supposed to be leeching is beating the so-called "stronger" one by a large margin? This was an SFF beating, one that went counter to everyone's expectations. It was probably the first hint that Falcon was underrated due to continually receiving horrible draws...but it definitely showed that expectations for Diddy had been set far too high. It's not a mistake anyone will make again.

Diddy's weakness was again on display in the Winter 2010 Contest Vote-Ins, where he finished ninth out of twelve on Day 2, failing to break 5% (the cut line ended up at 9.20%)
