About his secret project[]

  • "Hey! Someone's told you I've been extra busy lately. Well... it's something a bit special."

  • "You're still 1-40 coins short of the deposit for my top gear!" (no enough coins)

  • "Unbelievable type of a situation! You've found all the DK coins!"
  • "I'm sorry, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, I didn't think you'd actually find them all, so I've got nothing new to show you! Hey, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, just kidding, you know?"

Leaving his rentals[]

Donkey Kong 64[]

  • "Hey, been a long time Donkey-dude! K. Rool's return is a real bummer, so the main monkey's here to fix you up with some reptile kickin' hardware. Check this out. I've got this real cool shooter that'll trash K. Rool's army. And it's yours for just 3 coins. Are we talkin' a deal here?"
  • "Lookin' good Donkey/Diddy/Lanky/Tiny/Chunky! Let me give you the lowdown. To fetch out or put away your shooter, press and hold Z, then press C-left. Press B to fire. You can also press C-Up to use the aiming sight mode. An' if you're firin' blanks, I'm the monkey to see for ammo refills."
  • "Zero doin' right now. Donkey/Diddy/Lanky/Tiny/Chunky-dude. 'Fraid I gotta go work on my next big thing."
  • "Yo, Donkey/Diddy/Lanky/Tiny/Chunky! Hit me with 5 coins and I'll upgrade your shooter. Gimme the word, huh?"
