Hero Overview

Dixie Kong is Diddy Kong's girlfriend and Tiny Kong's older sister. Also, she is the cousin of Chunky Kong and Kiddy Kong. Dixie Kong appears in almost all Donkey Kong games and in some Mario spin-off titles. Although Candy Kong was the first female Kong to appear, Dixie was the first female Kong to be playable. She also starred in two games even before Princess Peach got her own game.

Appearance

Dixie is an ape with green eyes, beige skin, brown fur and blonde hair that she wears in a single huge ponytail. For clothing, Dixie wears round green earrings, a pink beret and a sleeveless pink shirt which is tied up to presumably reduce it's length. Her earlier designs also depicted Dixie wearing purple eyeshadow, pink bands on her elbows and knees, and her beret had on it a small golden logo of the game developers Rare Ltd.. However, Dixie's more recent designs remove these features. Instead giving her beige eyelids and made her brown fur a somewhat brighter tone in color.

Personality

She is very brave and has a love for adventure, and while she eagerly engages upon Diddy's quest to save Donkey Kong she is also happy to go on adventures herself, as seen when she saves both of them with the aid of Kiddy Kong in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble and searches for the Lost World in Donkey Kong Land III. In games such as DK: Jungle Climber, it is shown that she likes playing with Donkey Kong and Diddy. She is also one of the most active Kongs, and known to enjoy sports, joining in with Diddy and Donkey when they play basketball and baseball. Her demeanor is slightly tomboyish and assertive, but also cheerful and lively. She has a particular fondness for bubblegum, and can often be seen chewing and blowing bubbles, and even owns a Bubblegum Popgun which she uses in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. She is also very musically inclined, perhaps moreso than any other Kong, showing her love for guitars in her debut in Donkey Kong Country 2 and playing one during the ending of Tropical Freeze, as well as playing air guitar when left idle for awhile. She has a habit of headbanging her remarkable hair when playing guitar and appears to be fond of rock music. In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, she seems to have got a little more mature and a little less tomboyish. Her trophy description for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U implies that she probably takes great care of her hair. In Donkey Kong Country 2 when thrown away by Diddy or hit by enemy, she starts crying, this also occurs in Donkey Kong Country 3 after being thrown away by Kiddy or after being hit by an enemy attack (in an extra note, when a player enters a cheat in DKC3 (only in the SNES version), her crying sound effect occurs.)

In the cartoons she is portrayed as a friendly and somewhat childish character. In one of the episodes, she even befriends a Kremling. She is also shown to really care about the others; she always tries to help her friends. She also loves animals; during the show she has different pets.

Powers and Abilities

Dixie Kong's greatest asset is her long, blonde ponytail. Her ponytail has the ability to rotate as a helicopter, allowing Dixie to slow down her fall, control her descent to the ground when she is in the air, and expand her jump. She can also use her ponytail to lift Barrels, attack enemies (as her sister in Donkey Kong 64), and as a propeller to traverse underwater. Her ponytail has significant amount of strength being able to toss Kiddy Kong into the air, lift Donkey Kong from the ground while using her helicopter technique, and even capable of pounding the ground. Although she is a bit slower than Diddy Kong, the versatility of her ponytail more than makes up for it. Swimming in the water is second nature to Dixie due to having grown up on an island. In Mario Hoops 3-on-3 she had the ability Cannon Shot, which consisted in her summoning a barrel to shoot the ball. In DK: King of Swing, she's an exceptionally high jumper and can attack by performing an aerial attack, which glows red when charged. In Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, she attacks with acrobatic flips and had the ability of doing Wild Moves. In Donkey Kong Country 2, she talented in playing an electric guitar which she plays whenever the player finishes a level with her. She is also skilled at playing bongos. In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Dixie has a popgun of her own which fires bubblegum.

Trivia

  • Nintendo Power mistakenly and frequently referred to Dixie as Daisy Kong.
  • In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, while Dixie Kong is standing still, after she chews bubble gum, she sits down and drinks a banana milkshake before standing back up again. However, in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!!, she only chews bubble gum.
  • In Diddy Kong Racing DS, when Dixie's animation square shows up when being used by the AI after she attacks the player with a weapon, is overtaken by the player, or is attacked by the player's weapon, the Rare logo can be seen on her beret (although it is silver instead of gold), despite the fact that Microsoft Game Studios purchased Rare in late 2002.
  • In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Dixie will play air guitar when left idle for a awhile. She also plays guitar in the ending sequence, both referencing her love of guitars from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Her new guitar has a banana-themed design.
  • In the GBA versions of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Dixie has the same voice clips as Tiny Kong, recycled from Donkey Kong 64.
