Dixie Kong (With pictures)

Dixie Kong. Diddy's partner as well as girlfriend in Donkey Kong Country 2, as well as being Rare's clothing advertisement, since she's got a Rare logo pin on her hat, complimenting Diddy's Nintendo hat.

Image

Great game, my favourite of the 3. This made both Diddy and Dixie become popular characters, as well as starting some fans making fan art about the cute couple. Rare noticed Dixie's popularity, and thus gave her the lead role in DKC3

Image

Not as good as the other 2, but still good in it's own right. Dixie had to save DK and Diddy from KAOS and yet another K. Rool. Oh, and uh, Kiddy too. It was the conclusion to the Donkey Kong Country series. They were followed up in The Donkey Kong Land GB games, which were good, but fairly similar to the Country games

Image

At around the same time, there was a TV show called "Donkey Kong Country". I watched it when I was a kid. Good show. <b>BANANA SLAMA!!!</b>. DK, Diddy, Cranky, and K Rool appeared in virtually every episode. However, Dixie Kong didn't make very many appearances, probably the least of any kong. Not to mention she looked... Strange

Image

After this, Dixie kinda... Disappeared. For 7 years, Dixie never appeared in a DK game, or any game, again. One game of which that she more than deserved to have a role in, but was denied one, was Donkey Kong 64

Image

Ah, Donkey Kong 64. The first game I got a game time of 100+ hours. It was great, you could pick from 5 different kongs, they all had neat special moves and weapons, as well as Diddy having a really cool guitar. However, Dixie was nowhere to be seen. She was replaced by her little sister, Tiny Kong

Image

Tiny copied Dixie's trademark ability. Twirling her hair around like a helicopter to hover/fall slowly. Although she lacked Dixie's (weird) ability to grab and throw barrels using her hair, as well as hang from hooks using her hair, that didn't really matter, seeing as how you never threw any barrels or hung from hooks in DK64. To counter argue the fact that some fans will be upset as to Dixie's absense from DK64, Rare stated early in development that with the exception of 3 playable characters (Lanky, Tiny, and Chunky), only characters from the original Donkey Kong Country would appear. So we saw DK, Diddy, Cranky, Funky, K. Rool and the Kremlings, and Wrinkly... Hey... Wrinkly was introduced in Donkey Kong Country 2...!

Image

<b>SO</b>, Rare went against their own rule and used Wrinkly, but not Dixie. Since Rare are a nice bunch of folk, and didn't want their fans to be upset that Dixie was excluded from one of the greatest platformers made, they announced she'd be playable in the new, upcoming games Diddy Kong Pilot, and Donkey Kong Racing...

Image

Ahahahaha, you mean Banjo-Pilot and that racing game that was never released? Rare was bought out by Microsoft, and was forced to scrap all DK works, due to them not having the rights from Nintendo anymore. Donkey Kong Racing was cancelled, and Diddy Kong Pilot was remade with Banjo-Kazooie characters. And poor Dixie was still with Kiddy Kong in the valley of no return... Until one crazy spin-off game brought her back (Actually, DKC2's GBA port did it first, but... That was a port). Donkey Konga 2. Her role was giving the players notes, teaching DK and Diddy how to hit a barrel on the head, and being the CPU player who can never mess up. She continued to make various spin-off appearances, in things such as Mario Superstar Baseball, DK: King of Swing, and Diddy Kong Racing DS, where she got a visual update

Image

She no longer had the Rare pin on her hat, nor did she have kneepads either (Why she had them in the first place is beyond me, her knees never hit anything). Along with Dixie, her younger sister Tiny got a visual update as well, to help fill in Conker and Banjo's roles (Conker was now gathering money and smacking people with spiked bats, and Banjo wasn't Nintendo's... And, neither was Conker...)

Image

...Umm... Which one's the little sister again? Which one is named <b>Tiny</b> again? Tiny's got <b>boobs</b>, Dixie does not. Tiny's 2x as tall as Dixie. Insane. She was also shoved out of various roles, such as being one of the forbidden 7 in Super Smash Bros Brawl, and not making an appearance in Mario Kart Wii... Yet Funky and Diddy did. Seriously... WHY FUNKY?! He's cool and all, but Dixie's better. Who's next? <b>KIDDY KONG?</b>

And that's all. Dixie's pretty cool. My point to all this?

Image

DK's got a monster truck. What's up with that? Ok, you got me. The point was really... Someone post something ;_;. There's almost nothing being posted anymore! Someone reply! Say how Dixie is cool! Say how Diddy Kong Racing DS actually isn't a direct port! Say how DK has a monster truck! SAY HOW TINY HAS BOOBS! I plea, I plea! POST STUFF!!! BRING LIFE BACK TO THE FORUM OF THE FANTUM, NOT JUST THE SHOUTBOX! MAKE SOME NEW TOPICS IF YOU'D LIKE!!!

Wow Sonikku, that was a great post, very thorough. I didn't even know about Dixie Kong until now. What the heck is the deal with Tiny Kong?! That's really messed up.

...that explains everything... I always wondered why they rejected such a great DK character, and what's up with tiny being taller and more "developed" than dixie kong? that's almost as silly of a mistake as making charmy the bee in Knuckles chaotix 13 years old, then when he reappears in Sonic Heroes, the manual says he's 6 years old! lol
