Diddy Kong is Donkey Kong's best friend and sidekick. In most major adventures involving Donkey Kong, Diddy is usually by his side. Diddy was made by the company Rare, Ltd. first appearing in Donkey Kong Country, and has a Nintendo hat to represent the publisher of his games. Ever since his debut in Donkey Kong Country, Diddy has been a very long time recurring character in the Donkey Kong series only second to Donkey Kong himself.

- : Peanut Popgun - Diddy Kong shoots a peanut from his Popgun. The longer Diddy charges the attack, the farther and quicker the peanut will fly. If Diddy overcharges the attack, however, it will cause a very powerful explosion that leaves him vulnerable. (3-12% (Peanuts), 23% (explosion))

> : Monkey Flip-  Diddy Kong performs a sideways hop that has the potential to launch Diddy onto an opponent's face if timed correctly. Once Diddy has clung onto his foe's face, he can double chop them and leap away with the attack button, or can perform a footstool jump with the jump button. Finally, tapping the special button while he is flipping will cause Diddy to attack with a flying kick instead. (14% (clean midair kick), 12% (mid midair kick), 10% (late midair kick), 1% (pummel), 3% (grab attack hit 1), 7% (grab attack hit 2), 3% (jump attack hit 1), 5% (jump attack hit 2))

^ : Rocketbarrel Boost -  Diddy Kong charges his rocketbarrels from Donkey Kong 64 in a powerful attack. Can potentially fly very far and very fast, but hitting a surface (or being hit) will make Diddy Kong lose his rocketbarrels and will fall helplessly. Diddy Kong will gain 5% damage for hitting a surface. (10% (launch explosion), 6-8% (collision with opponent))

v : Banana Peel -  Diddy Kong tosses a banana peel over his shoulder and into the air to have it fall onto the ground. Opponents who touch the peel will slip and trip. Only one banana peel can exist at one time, and it disappears when hit by an opponent. (N/A)

F : Rocketbarrel Barrage -  Diddy Kong flies around on his rocketbarrels, shooting explosive peanuts everywhere. The peanuts fly great distances and have great power, but crashing into enemies does more damage. (5-10% (Peanuts), 12% (collision))
