First Appearance Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (for SNES) (1995)
Latest Appearance Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (2018)

Dixie Kong is a female Kong from the Donkey Kong series. She is Diddy Kong's girlfriend and Tiny Kong’s older sister. Originally her apparent look resembled that of a youthful chimp Kong, however despite her current design remaining mostly unchanged, Dixie (like her all grown up younger sister) has indeed physically aged albeit much more subtly.

She also has two cousins, the 3 year old toddler Kiddy Kong and his older brother Chunky Kong. Her first appearance was as Diddy's partner in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Aside from games, Dixie also appeared in the Donkey Kong Country cartoon and in two comics as well.

Dixie Kong appears in almost all Donkey Kong games and in some Mario spin-off titles. She is playable in almost all of the games she appears on. Dixie was the first female Kong to be playable, although Candy Kong was the first female Kong to appear in the series. She was also the first female character in the Mario series to star in her own game; she starred in two games even before Princess Peach got her own game. Dixie has appeared in seventeen games and is playable in fifteen of them.


The DKC2 manual initially refers to as a monkey.[1]

This was also the case in the DKC3 manual.[2]

Rare's description of DKC trilogy refers to her as a "young chimp",[3] something fans latched on to due to her lacking a visible tail (like the one Diddy uses to grab things) relying on her ponytail to grab things instead.


Crocodile Island

Dixie's first appearance.

Her first appearance was in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. In this game, Donkey Kong was kidnapped by Kaptain K. Rool. As such, Diddy and Dixie had to travel to Crocodile Isle, home of the Kremlings, to rescue him. On their way, Diddy and Dixie had to defeat many Kremlings, aquatic animals and even ghosts on a few occasions. They eventually defeated Kaptain K. Rool, saved DK and also blew up Crocodile Isle. Although the game centered on Diddy's quest to prove he was a great video game hero (in the likes of Mario, Yoshi, and Link), his sidekick Dixie manages to prove her worth as well. In this game, she is overall slower than Diddy but has her signature ability: Helicopter Twirl, which is essential during the game to get across large gaps.

Crocodile Isle and the Kremling Krew were resurrected in Donkey Kong Land 2. Donkey Kong is kidnapped once again and Dixie and Diddy went again to save him. In the end, K. Rool was defeated again, Donkey Kong is saved and Crocodile Isle was destroyed for a second time.

In the Game Boy Advance port of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, the plot was the same, but there were some small differences in other things. Swanky Kong will now count the time it took for Dixie, or Diddy, to beat the boss. Dixie and Diddy can also complete Wrinkly's task, which consists of filling a scrapbook with pictures. Dixie can now play mini-games at Funky's place, where her sister makes an appearance.

The Star of the Show

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

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Dixie emerges as the lead character of her own game alongside co-star Kiddy Kong. As the Kongs are vacationing in the Northern Kremisphere, Donkey and Diddy decide to go out on one of their adventures, leaving Dixie behind. However, the two of them get kidnapped by a new group of Kremlings, led by their new mysterious leader KAOS. Dixie discovers the Kremlings and decides to rescue DK (for the third time) and Diddy Kong. However, K. Rool, in the guise of Baron K. Roolenstein, returns. He secretly controls KAOS from behind the scenes, making K. Rool the de facto leader of the Kremling Krew. K. Rool kidnapped DK and Diddy to use their cerebral energies to power the robotic KAOS.

Early in the adventure, Funky Kong asks Dixie to babysit her cousin Kiddy Kong. Together, they rescue Donkey and Diddy and also stop K. Rool and his Kremlings. During their quest, they also have to free all the Banana Birds; when all the Banana Birds are freed, they take Dixie and Kiddy up to the clouds to free the Banana Bird Queen who has been imprisoned by Baron K Roolenstein.

In Donkey Kong Land III, Dixie once again teams up with her baby cousin Kiddy. Again, Donkey Kong and Diddy go off on an adventure, this time searching for the Lost World, and, again, they leave Dixie behind. Dixie decides to find the Lost World herself first. Unbeknown to all, K. Rool has returned with his Kremlings. He too is searching for the Lost World. In the end, Dixie and Kiddy discover the Lost World and defeat K. Rool all over again.

In the Game Boy Advance port of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, the plot is the same, but now Dixie and Kiddy have to collect more Banana Birds. Dixie can now go and play mini-games at Cranky's Dojo or at Funky's Rentals. Swanky Kong has a new mini-game that only Dixie can play. She has a new location to explore, Pacifica.

Jungle Jam and Sun Sun Island

Dixie Kong, as she appears in DK: King of Swing.

Dixie also briefly appears in DK: King of Swing, although she is not playable in story mode, she is one of the eight playable characters in the game's Jungle Jam mode, were she can play different mini-games with the other Kongs. In this game she has very good jump, but a poor attack.


  • Jump: 5
  • Attack: 1

Dixie plays a very small role in DK Jungle Climber, seen only in the intro and 100% cutscene. In this game she went on vacation at Sun Sun Island, along all the other Kongs. In the opening cutscene she is seen playing beach volleyball with Diddy and Donkey. Although she is not playable in story mode, she is playable in the game's wireless multiplayer mode as P3. Additionally, she hosts the secret stages, which provide Donkey Kong with several additional DK Coins needed to complete the game with a 100%.

Musical Talent

Dixie Kong's artwork in Donkey Konga 3.

Aside from remakes, Dixie was not present in any other games, until she appeared as a playable character in Donkey Konga 2; her first appearance on the Nintendo GameCube. In this game she is one of the three characters available to play different songs with the bongos, and help win money to buy bananas. She also has the option of playing mini-games.

She returns in the Japan-only sequel, Donkey Konga 3, as one of the four playable characters. She again plays songs in the bongos, this time she can choose from 57 different songs to play. Dixie Kong again helps Donkey Kong get money to buy bananas and can also play different mini-games. Also, whenever you finish a level as her in DKC2 she'll play electric guitar. She likes to sing and even tried to launch her singing career when she rose to stardom after the events of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land 3 (explaining her absence from Donkey Kong 64)

Out to the Races

Dixie Kong's appearance in Diddy Kong Racing DS.

Dixie also appears as a playable character in Diddy Kong Racing DS, her spin-off debut. She has medium speed, acceleration and handling. Dixie didn't appear in the original Diddy Kong Racing for unknown reasons, but she was in this game to replace Conker, a Rare character. She has a high-pitched voice in this game. This is also the first game were she appears alongside her younger sister Tiny and the first racing game in which she appears.


  • Speed: ☆☆
  • Acceleration: ☆☆☆
  • Handling: ☆☆☆

Dixie was first called by Diddy Kong; he explained that Timber asked him to help him defeat Wizpig, and also help to find out what happened to Drumstick, which was converted into a frog by Wizpig.

During the quest they arrived to Dino Domain, and after beating all the challenges in the area Dixie (or one of the other racers) would race the brainwashed Tricky through the valley, if she beat him he will open the Silver Coin challenges. Once all the challenges were completed they could have a rematch against Tricky, if Dixie and the other manage to defeat him the spell on him would break, and Tricky will thank them by giving the piece of Wizpig's amulet he was guarding.

Their next location was Snowflake Mountain, if Dixie and the others managed to beat all the trials they could have a race against Bluey in a downhill mountain. After defeating him, he opened the Silver Coin challenges from that area. After the challenges were completed, the racers had the option to challenge him again. After his defeat the spell on him would break and he gave Dixie and the others the second piece of Wizpig's amulet.

Their next location was Sherbet Island, and like in the previous locations after beating the challenges they could race Bubbler. After he was defeated he opened the Silver Coin Challenges. Once the Silver Coin challenges were completed Dixie could race him again. Finally after he was defeated and taken out from Wizpig's spell he gave Dixie and the other racers the third piece of the amulet.

Their next location was Dragon Forest, were after beating all the challenges Dixie and the others could race Smokey the Dragon. Like the previous bosses he opened the Silver Coin challenges after being defeated. After he was defeated and taken out of Wizpig's control he gave Dixie and the racers the last piece of the amulet.

With all the pieces of the amulet, Dixie and the other manage to race against Wizpig, whom after being defeated teleports away. Dixie, along all the other racers, held a celebration. During the celebration Wizpig arrives and asks for a rematch, but this time in his planet Future Fun Land. After a long race Dixie and the others defeated him and again held the celebration this time without problems.

Barrel Blasting

Dixie Kong in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast.

Dixie is a default character in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. Though her speed is minimum, she has better agility and maximum boost. Dixie's rival is Kass. Her drums are pink and have attached what seems to be sky blue upside down flowers. She attacks with a flip.

In the Single Race cutscene she can be seen, along Donkey, Tiny and Lanky, standing in front of their rivals, Kass, Kritter, Kalypso, and Klump. Also, in the Candy Challenges cutscene, Candy seems to be choosing who will participate in the challenges with Dixie is eagerly raising her hand, while an irritated Kritter seems to tell her to be quiet. In the Options cutscene, she is seen running from side to side while Funky Kong is fixing his bongos.


  • Boost: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Speed: ☆
  • Agility: ☆☆☆☆

Other Appearances


Dixie appears as a secret playable character in Mario Superstar Baseball, her first appearance in the traditional Mario series. This was also her first sports game. In this game she is voiced by Jen Taylor. In challenge mode she can help Mario and the others beat Bowser and Bowser Jr.

In this game she appears as a sub-character, being a technique character. She has good chemistry with Donkey and Diddy. She uses a stick as a bat, and the sweet spot is the middle of the stick. Her only talent is Clamber (shared by all the Kongs), meaning she can climb walls to catch the ball. In stats, she is bad at batting, and medium in running, fielding and pitching.

She returns in Mario Super Sluggers, the sequel to Mario Superstar Baseball. She appears as a sub-character. In Challenge Mode, she is found in the DK Jungle stadium. After being saved from the Dark Bones, Donkey Kong impulsively rushes off to the stone bridge without listening to Dixie, much to her chagrin. She asks Mario and the others to find a stone tablet, suggesting they look near the entrance/exit sign. After doing so, she join the team, and soon insists that the returning Donkey work with Mario to save the stadium.

She has good chemistry with all the Kongs, but she has bad chemistry with King K. Rool and the Kritters. In stats, she is bad at pitching and batting, but she is very good at fielding and running. She uses again a stick as a bat. Her bat entrance includes her jumping and flipping and then prepares to bat. In this game, she is the fastest Kong, but is the worst Kong at batting.

Her special shoot is the Cannon Shot, in which she starts spinning and suddenly a barrel cannon falls from the sky and catches the ball, then Dixie backflips onto the cannon and shoots the ball into the hoop, followed by a red explosion and multicolored confetti.

In this game, she is a speedy character, just like Diddy. She can also enter the tourney in which she and her team have to beat different teams.

Super Smash Bros. series

Dixie also has a trophy in her likeness in the game Super Smash Bros. Melee, while Diddy Kong was nowhere to be seen in Melee, except for a mention in her trophy. Her trophy also mentions about her being quick and nimble, and also that one time she helped save Donkey Kong.

Dixie Kong also appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Her trophy mentions about her ponytail helping her for flying and attacking.

She also has a sticker based on her appearance from Donkey Konga 2. Her sticker increases launch resistance by thirty nine and can only be used by Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong.

Hackers have found incomplete character data for Dixie Kong in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, implying she was once planned as a character, but was dropped for unknown reasons.

Appearaces in Other Media


Dixie Kong as she appeared in the DKC cartoons.

Dixie Kong made sporadic appearances on the Donkey Kong Country cartoon. On the show, her personality was drastically different than the one portrayed in the games; her clothing was also different, somewhat resembling what her sister, Tiny Kong, wears. Often, Dixie would lose her various pets. She was also more trusting than the other Kongs, befriending General Klump, who had been fired and exiled by King K. Rool, when no one else would. She was the only Kong included in the show that made her debut in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Dixie was voiced by Louise Vallance.

Her first appearance in the show is in episode six, Kong for a Day. In this episode, she cheers up Donkey after Funky got mad with him. When they are in the jungle, a Krusha imitates Donkey's voice and tricks Dixie, making her believe that Donkey was saying bad things about her and Diddy. Later on, Dixie congratulates Diddy on being named the new future ruler of Kongo Bongo before Cranky's hologram appears to tell Diddy of K. Rool planning an attack on Bluster's Barrelworks.

In the episode From Zero to Hero, she is one of the characters to see Cranky's new experiment, the x-ray machine. When Bluster decides to cut Candy, saying he has more rights than her and the others just because he is rich and calls him the most promising citizen in Kongo Bongo, Dixie calls him inconsiderate. The next day, she is the one that informs Cranky, Donkey, and Diddy that King K. Rool had the Crystal Coconut and Bluster was heading to his hideout to get the coconut back, an attempt that all four knew was suicide.

In the episode Buried Treasure, she convinces Candy to accompany Bluster on following DK, Diddy, and Funky, who on a treasure hunt to the White Mountains. After the treasure is found, Dixie and Candy get into a four-way scramble for it with the duos of Donkey and Diddy, Funky and Bluster, and King K. Rool and Krusha. In the end, the treasure turns out to be rotten bananas buried by Donkey Kong in his youth.

In the episode The Curse of Kongo Bongo, Dixie and the other apes a letter that was the "Curse of the Double Baboon". DK and Diddy tried to warn her and Funky not read the letters, but she misheard them and nearly read it until they dropped them.

In It's a Wonderful Life, she doesn't appear. It is unknown what happened to her if DK never existed it is possible she is Diddy's queen and is his girlfriend just like did DK did exist


Bumm-Badabumm Im Urwald

Dixie was also one of the main characters in the Donkey Kong comic, "Bumm-Badabumm Im Urwald". Here, she aided both Diddy and Donkey Kong in tracking down their stolen bananas and defeating Kaptain K. Rool and the Kremling Krew. She went 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's empty as well, Dixie finds a hole from were 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 give the Kremlings a lesson.

The three of them enter the hole that leads to the jungle. Then Dixie notice a wasp, and quickly Donkey throws it a barrel. 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, afterwards they find themselves having 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 a rope should be, the Kremlings pulled the rope up, Donkey throws Dixie upwards so she can let the rope down. After they reach the top, a Necky starts attacking them, but Donkey took him out quickly. Afterwards they reach the portal, but its locked, they successfully opened 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 turned less safely. Then, the rails ended, and the Kongs landed 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 remembered something, he started to jump on flies until he reached land, Diddy and Dixie did the same. Dixie realized they were in the Lost World. Dixie climbs a wall and sees King K. Rool on the other side with all the bananas. Suddenly, Dixie falls and the Kremlings see her, Donkey and Diddy quickly jump and help her. A fight against the Kremlings starts. King K. Rool starts shooting pineapples, but Donkey evades them all, he then finds an explosive barrel and throws it to him, which defeats him. The Kongs finally recover the bananas.

Donkey Kong in: Banana Day 24

Dixie also appeared in the comic "Donkey Kong in: "Banana Day 24". Dixie was sleeping in a palm and is suddenly awakened by Squawks. Afterwards Diddy and Cranky explain to her that it's 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 had 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 invited 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 Buddies to the nearest airport were they take the Jumbo Barrel to travel to Washington, Dixie along Diddy ride Expresso.

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, quickly notice the aliens look like them but bigger and green and blue. The Kongs learn that the aliens don't 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 were they are hailed by the people for saving them. Back at their jungle the Dixie and the others finally celebrate a Christmas party. At the end Dixie enjoys the starry sky along with her boyfriend.


Dixie Kong is available in the Mario Super Sluggers online card collection. She was form the first characters to be released. In Double Play she can be combined with Donkey Kong to get Donkey Kong's wallpaper.

Card Description: Dixie Kong makes use of her innate Kong sense in the outfield. She is one of the premiere defensive characters in this game, clambering her way to highlight-reel catches when she needs to.

Character Description


Dixie is a chimpanzee type Kong that has long hair tied up in a banana-shaped ponytail. It is blond in color (she shares this with her sister and Candy), she also has bangs, the hair at the sides of her bangs curls up. She has green eyes (currently the only Kong that has green eyes), her fur is a light brown. She can be recognized by her trademark pink beret (it originally had the Rare pin, although in DK: King of Swing the logo was removed after Microsoft bought Rare and Microsoft now holds the rights to Rareware). In one of her artworks she was shown to have an orange band under her pink beret.

In the Donkey Kong Country series, she had pink nails, but were removed in all later games and now she doesn't have visible nails. She also wore kneepads which were also removed in DK: King of Swing and later games for unknown reasons.

In the cartoons, she had yellow fur. She wore a pink beret and a shirt with a flower in it (reminiscent of her younger sister Tiny Kong). She didn't have earrings. Her ponytail was a bit more than half its game length. In the comics she has the same appearance as her first look, except for the Rare pin.

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, when playing with two players, the second players takes control of a Dixie with purple clothes; whereas in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, along with her purple clothes, she also has red hair.


Rare describes Dixie as a young chimp type Kong.

Dixie is a cheerful, lively, sassy, girly Kong. But like Donkey and Diddy, she can be courageous, adventurous, and stubborn, as she helped Diddy save Donkey and later she saved both of them.

She has a particular fondness for sweets, such as bubblegum, and can often be seen chewing and blowing bubbles, and even possesses a Bubblegum Popgun in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

Like Tiny Kong, Dixie is confident, but it is expressed in a different way. While Tiny is more openly boisterous, Dixie is comparatively more reserved than her younger sister.

She is also very musically inclined with her favorite instrument being the electric guitar and favorite music being rock music and has a habit of headbanging her remarkable hair when playing, and likes to sing. She is also shown to enjoy sports. In games like DK: Jungle Climber, she is playing beach volleyball with Diddy and Donkey. She is also one of the most active Kongs, as she sometimes joins Donkey and Diddy in their adventures as well as joining them in playing basketball and baseball with the denizens of the Mushroom Kingdom.

In the cartoon, she is portrayed as a friendly and somewhat childish character. In one of the episodes, she even befriended 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 had different pets. She may get distracted easily as she was losing her pets often.


Dixie Kong's greatest asset is her long, blond, banana-shaped ponytail. Her ponytail has the ability to rotate like 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 a barrel and attack enemies (like her younger sister in Donkey Kong 64). Although she is overall slower, less agile and weaker than Diddy Kong in terms of running speed, rolling, jumping height and distance, climbing, swimming and attacking, and her spin is slower than Kiddy Kong's roll, the versatility of her ponytail counteracts the disadvantages. In Mario Hoops 3-on-3 she had the ability Cannon Shot, which consisted in her summoning a barrel to shoot the ball. In Donkey Kong Barrel Blast she had the ability of doing Wild Moves.

Interactions with Other Characters

Diddy Kong

See also: Diddy Kong

Dixie's first meeting with Diddy is depicted on page 88 of volume 2 of the manga

Dixie Kong's boyfriend is Diddy Kong. Dixie helped him save Donkey Kong in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. After that, she saved 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.

They appear together in Mario Superstar Baseball and Mario Super Sluggers, and have good chemistry.

In the cartoon episode Kong for a Day, when she is tricked by the Kremlings in believing DK said bad things about Diddy, she quickly gets mad at DK. In that same episode, she is about to share a kiss with him.



English version of WiiU

Speculation exists regarding Dixie being Diddy's girlfriend, fed by:

  • Cranky calling her that in the DKC2 manual when they discover DK's kidnapping
  • announcer for Tropical Freeze in this promo refers to her as "way more than Donkey Kong's best buddy's girlfriend" which resembles her trophy description in Melee: "More than just Diddy Kong's girlfriend"
  • Brawl is rumored to say "Diddy Kong's cutie of a girlfriend" but a screenshot is needed.
  • in the WiiU version the Japanese trophy for her (25/237) has not yet been translated
    • her English description (164/743) says "Diddy Kong likes her"


The German comic Banana Day 24 featured Dixie watching a human girl kissing Diddy, and then she later comments to him about how the stars shine "just for us two".

Donkey Kong

See also: Donkey Kong

Dixie seems to have a good friendship with Donkey Kong, who acts something of a big brother to her. In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, she helped in saving him from Kaptain K. Rool. She explains the extra levels to him in Jungle Climber. In Mario Superstar Baseball and Mario Super Sluggers, the two of them share chemistry. In Mario Super Sluggers challenge mode, there are several conversations between Donkey Kong and Dixie.

In the cartoons, she has a good relation with DK. In episode Kong for a Day, she is the only one that goes with Donkey Kong to the jungle when he is prohibited to return to the village.

Tiny Kong

See also: Tiny Kong

Tiny is her younger sister. They have appeared in only a few games together, but they have yet to show any depth in their relationship. In the remake of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, Dixie had to save her in mini-games. An interesting fact is that her trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl didn't mention that the two were sisters. The two share Tomboyish and Girly-Girl traits, and also good chemistry in Mario Super Sluggers.

Candy Kong

See also: Candy Kong

Although in the games she doesn't interact much with Candy, they have a friendship that nearly parallels the one their boyfriends' have in the cartoon. In some of the episodes, they are seen together, such as the episode Buried Treasure, the two of them cooperate with each other to get the treasure.


See also: Kremlings

Dixie has shown to dislike the Kremlings in some games, much her friends in the Kong Family. The Kremlings have caused her many problems, notably kidnapping Donkey Kong and Diddy, with Dixie having to save them. In Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, she was given a Kremling rival, Kass.


She is hinted to have a good friendship with Funky Kong, as they share positive chemistry in Mario Super Sluggers and she is seen helping him tune his barrel rocket in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. She is also shown to have a really good relationship with her baby cousin and co-star Kiddy Kong; the latter hero-worships her and sees her as a role-model, as he helped her save DK and Diddy. She is presumed to have a bad relation with bosses she fought in the past, like Wizpig or King Zing. She is hinted to have a bad relation with Bowser and Bowser Jr., as she helped beat them and is wary of the trouble the father-and-son pair cause in Mario Super Sluggers.

  • In a Nintendo Power issue, Dixie was incorrectly called Daisy Kong.
  • Dixie Kong was originally planned to be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a tag team partner to Diddy Kong like the Ice Climbers, however due to technial limitations Dixie was scrapped and Diddy was made into a solo character.
  • The ages between Dixie and Diddy are left uncertain, Rare mentions that Dixie is a young chimp Kong and Diddy's designer Kevin Bayliss stated that Diddy was made to resemble a spider monkey Kong which aligns with Diddy's long limbs and so he can use his prehensile tail as his main tool to climb and it suits his eager personality.
    • Dixie resembling a chimpanzee Kong would by implication mean she's older than Diddy who is a spider monkey Kong.
      • Chimps are generally known to be bigger in size, are wiser due to their larger brains, and appear older than monkeys, whereas monkeys in comparison do not grow very big, all of which are accurate in the DKC games where Dixie appears to be portrayed as older, wiser, and more mature than Diddy. Her character model/sprite is around the same size if not slightly bigger than Diddy's, and Dixie is the oldest known member of her family while Diddy is the opposite, being the youngest known member of his family.
  • She is the one of the only Kongs whose first name doesn't end with "y".
  • Dixie Kong in video games and other media has showcased many feats.
  • According to Rare, Dixie was absent during the events of Donkey Kong 64 because she tried to launch an unsuccessful singing career after the events of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land 3 made Dixie rise to stardom. However her first single 'Bananas Are A Girl's Best Friend' sunk without trace.
