Donkey 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.

Charge the power of the Giant Punch in increments or all the way, then deliver the blow or store it for later use.
Headbutt grounded opponents to bury them, or do it in the air to Meteor Smash them.
Using Spinning Kong on the ground spins him at an angle, which gives the move more vertical attack coverage.

His Final Smash, Konga Beat, now has a rhythmic tracker which makes it easier to press the button in time with the music.
