Diddy Kong (ディディーコング, Diddy Kong) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. In Super Smash Bros. 4, he was confirmed on February 21st, 2014, coinciding with the international release date of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Diddy Kong retains his realistic chimpanzee screeches from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Donkey Kong's trusty partner. He sports his signature look: red hat, red shirt, Rocketbarrel Pack. In Smash Bros., he's incredibly agile. Charge the Rocketbarrel Pack by holding down the button before launch, and you can steer with left and right. Don't forget to drop banana peels--enemies love it!
- Diddy Kong's confirmation was the first time a character was revealed for an international release of a game as opposed to just the Japanese release.
- The elastic quality of Diddy Kong's limbs is similar to another Donkey Kong character, Lanky Kong.
- Diddy Kong's Banana Peels can only be thrown twice before disappearing once landing on the ground, while the actual item when spawned elsewhere can be thrown three times before disappearing.
- Prior to update 1.0.6, Diddy Kong's down-throw to up-air combo had quickly gained notoriety as a quick KO string. It gained the name "Hoo-Hah" after StaticManny interrupted a set between Hungrybox and Player-1.
