In our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Diddy Kong Guide, we talk about what changes have been brought on board for Diddy Kong including his moves, combos, playing as Diddy Kong, and countering him.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate Diddy Kong
Donkey Kong’s faithful partner is back and unlike in the previous entries, you will now need to unlock him.
There have been certain changes to the character when it comes to the animation with both Banana Peel and Peanut Popgun appearing different visually. Then there is the matter of Final Smash with him receiving a new one in SSBU.
His new Final Smash is titled Hyper Rocketbarrel that sees Diddy Kong fly full-screen and hit the enemy with the devastating force of his punch to cause great pushback effect.
Moves List and Combos
The major changes were made to his move-set. In addition to his jumpsquat now requiring 3 frames for completion down from 4, the down tilt move has greater pushback effect.
Although Monkey Flip now has reduced range, Banana Peel covers more vertical distance.
Apart from the various colors to choose from for his original costume, Diddy Kong has an alternate costume that paints his fur black, so that is a cool looking chimp.
Please note that our SSBU Diddy Kong Character Guide remains a work-in-progress. We will continue to add more content in the coming days.
