Dixie Kong, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

Dixie Kong is one of the main protagonists of the Donkey Kong games. A member of the Kong clan, Dixie is the girlfriend of Diddy Kong, and she made her first appearance in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Dixie's trademark ponytail allows her to attack, hold onto objects such as hooks, and hover in midair by spinning it like a rotor, a move called the Helicopter Spin.

The first time Dixie appears in a game not developed by Rare is Super Smash Bros. Melee, although only as a cameo, and Donkey Konga 2 being Dixie's first physical appearance in a game not produced by Rare. Dixie made a few appearances in some spinoff games within the Mario franchise, in which her first appearance is Mario Superstar Baseball. Dixie is a playable character in nearly all of her appearances.


Donkey Kong Country series

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest artwork of Dixie swimming

In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Dixie joins Diddy on his journey to rescue Donkey Kong from Crocodile Isle. Dixie's unique and trademark ability is the Helicopter Spin, which allows her to glide across the air. At the end of a level, if Dixie breaks an End of Level Target by landing on it hard enough, she takes out an electric guitar and briefly performs on it before exiting.

Diddy and Dixie eventually reach The Flying Krock, where they get in a boss fight against Kaptain K. Rool. They eventually defeat him and free Donkey Kong. Later in the Lost World, Diddy and Dixie encounter Kaptain K. Rool again at Krocodile Kore. After the Kongs defeat Kaptain K. Rool, Crocodile Isle starts to sink underwater, and the Kongs evacuate the island. In the ending, Dixie is seen with Donkey Kong and Diddy, watching as Crocodile Isle sinks underwater.

In Donkey Kong Country 2 for the Game Boy Advance, Dixie has the same voice clips as Tiny Kong, recycled from Donkey Kong 64.

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!

Dixie Kong has her first starring role in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. In the backstory for the game, Donkey Kong and Diddy go on a fishing trip. After a few days of them not returning, Dixie goes to the Northern Kremisphere to search for them. She goes to Funky's Rentals, where Funky Kong gives her Kiddy Kong to babysit. Kiddy joins Dixie in her adventure to find Donkey Kong and Diddy.

As they travel through the worlds, Dixie and Kiddy encounter many Kremlings along the way. At Mekanos, they first encounter the Kremling Krew's supposed new robotic leader, KAOS. At the end of Kaos Kore, Dixie and Kiddy fight KAOS and its creator, Baron K. Roolenstein. The Kongs defeat both KAOS and K. Rool and free Donkey Kong and Diddy, who were revealed to be inside KAOS.

At the end of Dixie and Kiddy's adventure, all of the rescued Banana Birds carry them up into the clouds to the Banana Queen and the Banana Birds free the Banana Queen from her barrier. Dixie and Kiddy then ride the Banana Queen as she chases after Baron K. Roolenstein, and the Banana Queen drops a large eggshell on K. Rool to stop him.

The first part during the end credits shows an album made by Dixie, titled Dixie Kong's Photo Album, and it shows a photograph and name for nearly every character and enemy that appear in the game.

In Donkey Kong Country 3 for the Game Boy Advance, some of Dixie's voice clips were recycled from Tiny Kong's in Donkey Kong 64.

Donkey Kong Land series

Donkey Kong Land 2

Dixie reappears in Donkey Kong Land 2, where she has the same role and retains most of her abilities from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.

Donkey Kong Land III

Dixie in Donkey Kong Land III

Dixie is the main character of Donkey Kong Land III, with Kiddy acting as her sidekick, just like Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.

In the backstory, Donkey Kong and Diddy enter a competition in search of the Lost World. Dixie is left behind to babysit Kiddy. Dixie wants to enter the competition but was not considered for the contest. Dixie, wanting to prove herself as competent, decides to join the search for the Lost World, and she takes Kiddy with her.

During their adventure, Dixie and Kiddy encounter many of the Kremlings and eventually Baron K. Roolenstein at the end of Tin Can Valley. The Kongs battle him another time in the Lost World itself.

Donkey Kong 64

Although Dixie does not appear in Donkey Kong 64, Cranky mentions her a few times in the manual. The game marks the debut of Dixie's sister, Tiny, whose abilities are similar to Dixie's.

Diddy Kong Pilot (canceled)

Dixie was one of the playable characters in both the 2001 and 2003 builds of the canceled Diddy Kong Pilot. The latter iteration was eventually finalized as Banjo-Pilot, which replaced Dixie with Jinjo, as shown by their shared statistics.

Appearances in related media

Donkey Kong in: Banana Day 24

Dixie and Diddy in "Banana Day 24"

In the comic "Donkey Kong in: Banana Day 24," Dixie is sleeping in a palm and is suddenly awakened by Squawks. Afterward, Diddy and Cranky explain to her that it is Christmas. After learning what day it is, she suggests to prepare a Christmas party, but, suddenly, she starts to shiver. The Kongs quickly discover that snow is falling from the sky, something Dixie and the others has never experienced yet. At the TV, the Kongs learn that the temperature has dropped all over the world and also that the president of the United States of America invites for a summit to find a solution to the problem. The Kongs decide to travel to the United States to talk with the president. Dixie and the others ride their Animal Friends to the nearest airport where they take the Jumbo Barrel to travel to Washington D.C..

The president tells them that a huge UFO pulling the Earth away from the sun is the cause of the low temperature. He provides them with a space shuttle, and with help of Cranky, Dixie and the others are launched into the aliens' space shuttle. At the space shuttle, Dixie, Diddy and Donkey Kong quickly notice the aliens look like them but bigger and green and blue. The Kongs learn that the aliens do not want to dominate Earth, and what really happened is that the aliens thought Earth was a giant Coconut. After giving bananas to the aliens in exchange of them returning Earth to its original temperature, the Kongs head back to Earth where they are hailed by the people for saving them. Back in the jungle, Dixie and the others finally celebrate a Christmas party. At the end Dixie enjoys the starry sky along her boyfriend.

Donkey Kong Country cartoon

Dixie in the Donkey Kong Country television series

Dixie Kong makes sporadic appearances on the Donkey Kong Country television series, in which she was voiced by Louise Vallance. On the show, Dixie's personality is drastically different than the one portrayed in the games; her clothing is also different, consisting of a teal singlet with a flower on it, somewhat resembling what her sister, Tiny Kong wears. Her ponytail is also smaller than it is in the games. In the episodes "Get a Life, Don't Save One" and "Klump's Lumps," Dixie loses her pet crab and lobster, respectively. In the latter episode, she is also shown to be more trusting than the other Kongs, befriending a recently fired General Klump when no one else can. Dixie is the only Kong in the show who debuted in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.

Dixie's makes her first appearance in the seventh episode, "Kong for a Day." Here, she cheers up Donkey Kong after Funky gets angry with him, and she also goes with him when he has to leave the island. When they are in the jungle, Krusha imitates Donkey's voice and tricks Dixie, making her believe that Donkey Kong is hitting on her and saying bad things about Diddy.

In "From Zero to Hero," she is one of the characters reunited to see Cranky's new experiment, the X-ray machine. When Bluster enters, saying he has more rights than Dixie and the others, just because he is rich, she gets mad and tells him that he is inconsiderable. As Candy has to go to work, Dixie is the next character to enter and have X-rays. Later, she is the one that informs Cranky that King K. Rool has the Crystal Coconut.

In "Buried Treasure" she convinces Candy of going with Bluster on a treasure hunt to mountain mines. After the treasure is found Dixie, along the other Kongs and King K. Rool start fighting for it.

Bumm-Badabumm im Urwald

Dixie is one of the main characters in the Donkey Kong comic, "Bumm-Badabumm Im Urwald." Here, she aids both Diddy and Donkey Kong in tracking down their stolen bananas and defeating Kaptain K. Rool and the Kremling Krew. She goes to Donkey Kong's house, because she heard noises. There, Donkey informs her and Diddy that all the bananas are gone. After, they go and check if their banana depot is also without bananas, and they realized that it is empty as well. Dixie finds a hole from where the thieves entered. Diddy enters the hole and finds a Kremkoin. Then they realize that the Kremlings are behind the disappearance of the bananas and decide to teach the Kremlings a lesson.

Dixie and Diddy in the "Bumm-Badabumm im Urwald"

The three of them enter the hole that leads to the jungle. Then Dixie notices a wasp, and quickly, Donkey Kong throws a barrel at it. Dixie looks at the stings and says that a sting would have hurt. In the way, they find Rambi and the three of them ride him. Afterward, they find themselves around many Kremlings. Rambi takes out all the Kremlings, and they continue their way to King K. Rool. After they reach the mountains, Rambi leaves them. They start climbing the mountain until they arrive to a place where the Kremlings pull the rope up. Donkey Kong throws Dixie upwards so she can let the rope down. After they reach the top, a Necky starts attacking them, but Donkey Kong takes him out quickly. Afterward, they reach the portal, but it is locked. They successfully open the portal with the Kremkoin. Inside the portal, they are attacked by Kremlings. After beating the Kremlings a giant Kremling appears. The Kongs escape from him through a narrow tunnel.

In the tunnel, they find a mine cart. They start racing against the Kremlings, but, as the distance between them increased, the mine cart becomes dangerous. After the rails ended, the Kongs land on a swamp. Diddy then realizes they are not the only ones swimming in the swamp; Krocheads are all around them. They all quickly go up to a crashed boat, and while thinking, Donkey Kong remembers something. He starts to jump on flies until he reaches land. Diddy and Dixie repeats. Dixie realizes they are in the Lost World. Dixie climbs a wall and sees King K. Rool in the other side with all the bananas. Suddenly, Dixie falls and the Kremling sees her. Donkey Kong and Diddy quickly jumps and helps her. A fight against the Kremlings starts. King K. Rool starts shooting pineapples, but Donkey Kong evades them. He then finds an explosive barrel and throws it to him, which defeats him. The Kongs finally recover the bananas.

Super Mario-kun

Dixie Kong appears in volume 14 of the Super Mario-kun manga. Even though this issue is based on Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, the end of the comic features Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Dixie is featured with her boyfriend, Diddy Kong, while battling Kaptain K. Rool.

Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Dixie has her own trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Her trophy also mentions about her being quick and nimble, and it also mentions times she helped save Donkey Kong. Her trophy incorrectly lists December 1995 as the month of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest's release when it actually occurred some time in November that year.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Dixie's trophy as seen in a video, alongside Diddy and Xananab, in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Dixie Kong is also featured as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Her trophy mentions about her ponytail helping her for flying and attacking. Dixie also has a sticker, which depicts her artwork for Donkey Konga 2. Dixie's sticker can only be used by Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong, and it increases their launch resistance by 39.

Incomplete character data for Dixie Kong in Super Smash Bros. Brawl was found, implying she was once planned as a character, but was dropped due to technical difficulties. In an interview with Famitsu, Sakurai stated that Dixie Kong was planned to be a character with Diddy as a tag team.[1] One of Diddy's alternate costumes matches the colors of Dixie Kong.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

Dixie Kong reappears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Her trophy description mentions that she loves adventuring with Diddy Kong and refers to her as Diddy's girlfriend. It also mentions how she's capable of using her hair for swimming faster, soaring in the sky, and lifting barrels.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Dixie is an item in the Smash Tour. She gives an extra double jump to the characters for the duration of the battle. Her trophy can be unlocked by using Diddy Kong to land three or more KOs on a rival in a single Rival Smash.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Dixie Kong appears as a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Her spirit can be leveled up and turned into a spirit of her with Kiddy Kong in the Hovercraft from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. A Mii Fighter wearable hat based on Dixie Kong can be found in a chest in World of Light.

General information

Physical appearance

Dixie has a thick blonde ponytail tied with a light blue band. She also has bangs, and the hair at the sides of her bangs is longer and curled. She has light brown fur and wears what appears to be a short pink top, while her face, ears, hands, feet, belly, belly button, and backside is exposed, revealing Dixie's pale skin. She can be recognized by her trademark pink beret. In one of her artworks for Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Dixie is shown to have a red headband under her beret. She typically wears large blue pearl earrings, although these were originally small and golden. Dixie is usually seen having her top tied.

In the original Donkey Kong Country trilogy, Dixie has pink nail varnish on her toes, but this was removed in all games after Donkey Konga 2. In some early artwork made prior to Microsoft's acquisition of Rare, Dixie's beret has a gold Rare logo pin attached to it, and this is also shown in Diddy Kong Racing DS. Dixie also used to wear pink knee pads, but these were removed from her design since DK: King of Swing. Dixie was originally depicted with four fingers and toes, but was given five in Donkey Konga 2 and subsequent appearances.

In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, the second team's Dixie in the Two Player Contest mode has purple clothes and red hair (the color of her bubblegum and juice box in her idle animations change to reflect this). However, in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, she has purple clothes and her normal blonde hair.

In the comics, she has the same appearance as her original look, including the Rare pin. In the Donkey Kong Country television show, Dixie has much lighter, almost yellow fur. She still wears a pink beret, but now wears a light blue shirt with a flower in it, presumably the design inspiration for Tiny Kong, and pink converse shoes. Unlike in the games, Dixie does wear earrings.


Dixie is generally fearless[2] 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. Dixie's demeanor is slightly tomboyish and assertive, but she also displays a sanguine and energetic personality, often expressed in cheerful vocalizations and acrobatic mannerisms.

Dixie's hobbies include blowing bubbles and mixing banana milkshakes,[3] which is seen in her idle animation as chewing bubblegum and then briefly sitting down to drink a banana milkshake in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, although the latter part was removed from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.

In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, when thrown away by Diddy or hit by an enemy, she starts crying; this also occurs in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! after being thrown away by Kiddy or after being hit by an enemy attack. Additionally, whenever a player enters a cheat in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, her crying sound effect is played.

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, whip enemies, 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 it is 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.[4]

Dixie has the ability to play an electric guitar, as shown in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest whenever she breaks an End of Level Target, followed by her playing electric guitar for a few seconds. Dixie has a habit of headbanging her hair when playing guitar. Dixie's trophy description for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U suggests that she takes great care of her hair.


Creation and development

The development team of Donkey Kong Country wanted to take risks and surprise players: As a result, it was decided to replace Donkey Kong with a new character.[5] The idea to give Dixie her trademark ponytail came after the game's director Gregg Mayles saw a piece of concept art that had the character depicted with long, flowing hair and him thinking that this could be used for gameplay opportunities.[5] Talking about Dixie's inclusion, Mayles explained that the decision to make her female was not born out of any particular desire for female representation and that the character's gender was decided before the ponytail design came about.[5]


Dixie with Donkey and Diddy

Diddy Kong

Diddy Kong is Dixie's boyfriend in both the games and the cartoons. She began a relationship with Diddy Kong after the events of Donkey Kong Country,[6] and helps him save Donkey Kong in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and saves both of them in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble. Dixie is one of the characters called by Diddy in Diddy Kong Racing DS.

Donkey Kong

Dixie and Donkey Kong get along well, although her interactions with him are not as evident as Diddy's. There are three games in which Dixie willingly goes on a long journey to rescue Donkey Kong: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Donkey Kong Land 2, and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.

Kiddy Kong

Kiddy Kong and Dixie are cousins and have a close relationship. He helped her save their friends in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!

Tiny Kong

Dixie's younger sister is Tiny Kong, however aside from sharing good chemistry in Mario Super Sluggers, the two have not been shown interacting together to any extent, with their kinship not even being mentioned in any official material since Donkey Kong 64. Both of them accompanied Diddy on his journey in Diddy Kong Racing DS, and followed alongside him during the intro cutscene where Timber called for their help.

Candy Kong

Dixie and Candy Kong do not interact much in the games, but more in Donkey Kong Country television series. Here, Dixie and Candy are shown to be great friends, a parallel to their boyfriends' friendship, and hang out together at times; searching for treasure, babysitting, going for x-ray examination and their vaccinations, planning a surprise party, discussing the elections, and making wedding invitations.

Funky Kong

Funky Kong and Dixie get along with one another, although they have not had any direct interactions in the Rare-developed Donkey Kong games.

Profiles and statistics

Donkey Kong franchise

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

  • Instruction booklet bio (page 13): "Dixie and Diddy are inseperable friends and go everywhere together. Both share a love of adventure and the awesome abilities to make it fun! Dixie’s powerful ponytail allows her to equal and sometimes even surpass Diddy's adventuring abilities!"

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!

  • Instruction booklet bio (page 12): "Dixie Kong is in the starring role as she quests across the islands in search of her friends. She has terrific adventuring abilities as she navigates tough terrain with her Helicopter Spin."

Rarewhere: DKC Trilogy Cast List


A wilful and adventurous young chimp, inseparable from Diddy and every bit as stubborn as he is on the issue of how far their friendship goes, despite (or possibly because of) Cranky and Funky's endless teasing. Dixie's main asset in the dangerous situations she always seems to be following DK and Diddy into is her remarkable ponytail, which she can use to whip enemies out of her way, pick up and throw barrels, and even glide through the air helicopter-style. Brave, determined and always fashion-conscious, Dixie makes a loyal friend to Diddy and a formidable Kremling-basher to boot.
