Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong Diddy Kong

- Donkey Kong -

Donkey Kong is Nintendo’s first true mascot, first starring in the arcade game Donkey Kong in 1982. In that game he kidnapped Pauline while Mario attempted to save her. Following that, he starred in the critically acclaimed Rare Ltd.-developed Donkey Kong Country series, where he and his nephew Diddy Kong went on an adventure to take on the Kremlings after they stole their bananas.

Donkey Kong’s moveset in Smash Bros. consists of powerful physical attacks, so can really go bananas on opponents during battle. Despite his overwhelming girth and power, he moves and attacks with considerable speed. He also has a great horizontal recovery move, but lacks any way to recover vertically.
