Trophy Information

# Name Appearance(s) Description
332 Kalypso Donkey Kong Barrel Blast
A cool beauty with chic makeup and groovy hair. Kalypso combines enough acceleration to break free from the pack with a respectable top speed. Her cornering is a bit weak, but good players should be able to overcome this. Her claw attack will get you...if her high-pitched laugh doesn't.


Kalypso has pale blue-green skin, a purple top with a skull design, and blue jeans with a skull belt. Her hairstyle is a large purple afro. She has a notable chest and wide hips. Her size compliments Tiny Kong's albeit slightly bustier, as such they rival each other in her debut appearance. Kalypso has been described as a cool and attractive character, but it is said she has an irritating laugh.
