'Diddy Kong is the chimpanzee companion to Donkey Kong. He often wears a hat with the Nintendo label and is fond of flinging bananas. He's worked along-side Donkey Kong in the Donkey Kong Country series.

[edit] Role in SSE

Diddy Kong first appears alongside Donkey Kong, chasing a group of Bowser's minions for a stack of bananas. After they obtain the bananas, Donkey Kong notices Bowser approach with a Dark Cannon and punches Diddy Kong out of the way just in time, sacrificing himself. Diddy Kong is later seen approaching a crashed Arwing, but is grabbed by Rayquaza who emerges from the Lake. Fox leaps out of the crashed Arwing just in time to save Diddy Kong, the two then fight and defeat Rayquaza. Fox begins to leave, but Diddy Kong pulls him along against his will. They later battle a clone of Bowser and upon defeat, the real Bowser appears. Diddy Kong attempts to get revenge, but Fox grabs him and leaps away. Later on, Bowser sneak shots Diddy Kong, luckily Falco arrives and destroys Bowser's Dark Cannon. Bowser escapes in his Clown Cart, but Shadowbugs had cloned Diddy Kong and created a giant clone. Fox revives Diddy Kong and the three fight and defeat the giant clone. After the fight, Falco, like Fox, attempts to leave, but Diddy Kong drags him along against his will as well. The three later find Donkey Kong's trophy. Diddy Kong boards Falco's Arwing and is ejected to Donkey Kong, knocking away the Primids guarding him and freeing him. They meet up moments later, with Captain Falcon and Olimar, who were watching from nearby. They infiltrate a bomb factory, meeting up with Samus and Pikachu along the way, where they attempt to stop a horde of R.O.B. Sentries set off Subspace Bombs. They fail and escape on Captain Falcon's Falcon Flyer, being chased by Meta Ridley. After defeating Meta Ridley, they join the other characters in Subspace to confront Tabuu. Tabuu turns all the charcters, including Diddy Kong into trophies using his Off-Waves. Diddy Kong can be used in the final battle against Tabuu if he is found and revived in the Great Maze.

[edit] Strategies & Advanced Techniques

Glide Tossing - An ability most characters have. The way this technique works is cancelling a roll by tilting the Control Stick in the direction you want to slide(move), and hitting the Shield Button simultaneously as well as the C-Stick in which direction you want to throw the item, preferably being the Bananas Diddy has the ability to take out.

Dribbling - Dribbling is Glide Tossing, but only in one specific direction, the direction being downwards and sliding backwards, then re-grabbing the banana and repeating the same steps from the beginning in quick succession. This technique is more into mindgames than it is an actual offensive maneuver.

Double Dribbling - Double Dribbling is the same as regular Dribbling, but instead this requires two nanerz and the two nanerz need to be close to each other. From one naner you Glide Toss in the direction where the other naner is, then grab the second naner and Glide Toss in an opposite direction, then grabbing the same naner that was just used to Glide Toss and Glide Toss towards the other naner then grab that naner and the process continues to repeat.

Note:The nanerz are not supposed to be moving and are also supposed to be within Glide Tossing distance from each other.

Banana Cancelled Rocket Barrel Boost(BCRRB) - This technique can be very useful when the opponent is able to counter Diddy's nanerz. The way this technique is used is by running towards the nanerz that are no longer in Diddy's control and when Diddy has enough running momentum, activate the Rocket Barrel Boost(Up-B) which the naner will cancel and then send the Rocket Barrels flying off possibly smashing into the ground and bursting, harming the opponent, if he/she/it's within range of the blast radius.

Pivot Dribbling - Pivot Dribbling is the same as regular Dribbling(not double dribbling), but with one small difference, Diddy Glide Tosses a naner downwards but slides forward at the same time, this is the hard part, there's a small window of opportunity where Diddy can turn around and retrieve his naner, it's a good technique if you want to switch the direction in which you're Dribbling.
