|“||He's back again and about time too, And this time he's in the mood! He can fly real high with his jetpack on, With his pistols out, he's one tough Kong! He'll make you smile when he plays his tune, But Kremlings beware 'cause he's after you!||„|

Diddy Kong is the deuteragonist of the Donkey Kong franchise. He also appears as a recurring guest character in the Mario franchise. He is the fastest and most agile member of the Kong Family. He is Donkey Kong's nephew, sidekick, and companion. He and Donkey Kong live in Jungle Japes, and he is introduced in the first game as his main companion when setting out to defeat King K Rool. Diddy is a creation of the British company, Rare, Ltd.; however, he has a Nintendo logo on his trademarked red hat, probably because Nintendo owned Rare at the time and holds the rights to the Donkey Kong franchise.
He was voiced by Chris Sutherland and currently is voiced by Katsumi Suzuki.
Powers and Abilities
- Superhuman Speed: Diddy Kong can run and move at extremely fast speed.
- Superhuman Agility: Diddy Kong is extremely agile.
- Superhuman Jump: Diddy Kong can jump to an extremely high or far distance.
- Superhuman Strength: Although he is not as strong as Donkey Kong or King K. Rool, Diddy Kong is extremely strong.
Diddy Kong shares several traits with his uncle. He has versatile feet, and his face is somehow similar to Donkey Kong; however, Diddy Kong has big eyes and a less frowned space between the eyebrows, covered in fur, as opposed to Donkey Kong's. However, he is quite different than Donkey Kong. He is the only known Kong to possess a prehensile tail.
Diddy Kong's clothing consists of a red cap showing the logo of Nintendo on its front, and a red tank top, with yellow Stars on it.
Diddy Kong is a young, affable and adventurous monkey, willing to help out his friends during times of need, evidenced by the Donkey Kong Country series. In contrast of his uncle's aggression, Diddy Kong is somewhat of a peacemaker, as he asks a Kremling to "show himself if he was friendly" in Donkey Kong Country. Diddy Kong's defining personality trait is his boundless energy, to the point of childishness. Diddy Kong always shows excitement in various competitive sports (as shown in the Mario sport-related game series) and kart races, as evidenced by his idle and victory animations, which see him cartwheeling, backflipping, sideflipping, jumping up and down, or clapping his hands while yelling and screeching in happiness and enjoyment.

- In Super Mario Odyssey, there is a Diddy Kong costume for Mario to wear.
- Diddy Kong first existed as a redesign of Donkey Kong Jr. but Nintendo thought that the character's appearance differed too much from the original. Rare Ltd., developers of the original Donkey Kong Country, were given a choice to revert Junior's design or use it for a new separate character, and the latter option was chosen.
