It is already unlocked in Super Smash Brothers.


[edit] Appearances

[edit] Super Smash Brothers

Congo Jungle is a starter stage in Super Smash Brothers. It is made up of a big platform, with four small platforms above it. There are also two small stationary platforms that circulate clockwise. Underneath the stage, there is a Barrel Cannon. This cannon can help aid a characters' recovery and get back on the stage. The character will be shot in the direction of what the arrow points at on the barrel.

It is a legal stage for tournaments.

[edit] Super Smash Brothers Melee

In Super Smash Brothers Melee, the stage is reused as an unlockable stage under the Kongo Jungle name. It is considered a counter-pick stage in tournaments and it is the exact copy as the SSB version, except being slightly bigger.

[edit] Character Advantages/Dis-Advantages

  • Captain Falcon can spike and kill easier on the sides of the stage.
  • Donkey Kong can Up B spike/spike better and the barrel helps with his poor vertical recovery.
  • Fox has more troubles at camping.
  • Jigglypuffs recovery is easier and she can kill easier.
  • Kirby is able to use the barrel to assist his recovery.
  • Link gets a better recovery with the barrel.
  • Luigi is at a disadvantage because of the high ceiling.
  • Mario can use the barrel to help his predictable recovery.
  • Ness is able to go below the stage, into the barrel cannon.
  • Pikachu doesn't have much of an advantage or disadvantage.
  • Samus can use the cannon to help her recovery better.
  • Yoshi loses his double jump when he jumps into the cannon.

[edit] Background

Congo Jungle is designed off of a level from Donkey Kong Country. In Donkey Kong Country, there is a level called Blackout Basement and it has two platforms that oscillate up and down. Later in the game, there is a level called Platform Perils that has two platforms that go in a circle.

The song that plays on this stage is from Donkey Kong Country's Jungle levels.
