Diddy Kong (ディディーコング Didī Kongu) is described as the nephew of Donkey Kong, who wishes to become strong just like him. During the events of Donkey Kong Country, he is placed in charge of Donkey Kong's banana hoard, and after the bananas are stolen, he helps Donkey Kong defeat King K. Rool and get them back. He stars in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, where he and Dixie Kong go in search of Donkey Kong after he is kidnapped by K. Rool. He is kidnapped by K. Rool, along with Donkey Kong, while they are on vacation in the Northern Kremisphere during Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, and they are eventually saved by Dixie and Kiddy. He appears as the main hero then again, staring on Diddy Kong Racing, Diddy Kong Racing DS, and later becomes playable in Donkey Kong 64, Donkey Kong Land, Donkey Kong Land 2, Donkey Konga, Donkey Konga 2, Donkey Konga 3, DK King of Swing, Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, Mario Power Tennis, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Superstar Baseball, Mario Hoops 3-on-3, Mario Strikers Charged, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Super Sluggers, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Diddy Kong makes an appearance in DK Jungle Climber and Mario Party DS but he is not playable in either. He does not appear, however, in Donkey Kong Land III, despite featuring in the plot of the game. He was due to star in Diddy Kong Pilot and Donkey Kong Racing but neither title saw release.
Diddy Kong appears in the Donkey Kong Country animated series, where his role as Donkey Kong's sidekick remains relatively the same as in the games. He is voiced by Andrew Sabiston in TV series and by Kevin Bayliss and Katsumi Suzuki in video games. Diddy Kong has also appeared in various comics featured in official Nintendo magazines. Some of the stories he appeared in include adaptations of Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong 64, as well as original stories.
