[edit] Design

Kongo Jungle is made up of a big platform at the bottom with two small platforms floating above it. In addition there are also two small 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 the arrow on the barrel.

[edit] Origin

In the N64 version of the game the stage is called Congo Jungle which is changed to Kongo jungle in Melee. Kongo Jungle design is based on 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 move in a circle.

[edit] Super Smash Bros.

Congo Jungle is a starter stage in Super Smash Bros.

  • It is a legal stage for tournaments.

[edit] Super Smash Bros. Melee

In Super Smash Brothers Melee the stage is reused as an unlockable Past Stage, unlocked by completing 15-Minute Melee. The stage is almost exactly the same as the N64 version, the only difference is a slightly bigger size.

  • It is considered a counter-pick stage in tournaments.

[edit] Character (Dis)-Advantages

[edit] Advantages

  • Captain Falcon can spike and more easily kill opponents at the sides of the stage.
  • Donkey Kong can Up B spike easily on this stage and the barrel helps with his poor vertical recovery.
  • 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.
  • Mario can use the barrel to help his predictable recovery.
  • Ness is able to go below the stage, into the barrel cannon.
  • Samus can use the cannon to help her recovery better.

[edit] Disadvantages

  • Fox has more troubles at camping.
  • Luigi is at a disadvantage because of the high K.O. ceiling.
  • Yoshi loses his double jump when he jumps into the cannon.

[edit] Stage Music

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