Kongo Jungle in Super Smash Bros.
|Home Stage||Donkey Kong|
|Availability|| N64 Starter |
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.
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.
Congo Jungle is a starter stage in Super Smash Bros.
- It is a legal stage for tournaments.
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.
