Donkey Kong's move set[]

Ground Moves[]

  • Neutral Attack: Jab, 2-4%, followed by an uppercut for another 2-4%. Comes out fast, but short range.
  • Forward Tilt: Extended Punch. A somewhat slow punch forward with decent range and good knockback. 12%
  • Up Tilt: Upward Knock. DK swings his hands in an arch above him. Hitbox is the arch above him and foes standing on the ground close to him. Can chain into itself, but DI-able. Sets up for aerial combos. Kills around 130%. Good anti-air move is timed right. Some ending lag. Can also lead into a down smash at lower percents. 13%
  • Down Tilt: Low Slap. A quick hand swipe aimed downwards with a little startup. 8%
  • Dash attack: Konga Kick. A very awkward move where DK sticks his foot out and stops. Bad range and duration, lots of lag, and easily shielded. Will not hit foes that are floored. 12%
Smash attacks[]
  • Forward Smash: Big Slap. DK reels his hand back and thrusts it forward. Very noticeable startup, but good range and excellent knockback. 20%
  • Up Smash: Upward Clap. DK claps directly above him, with some startup lag. Grounded enemies near him will not be affected at all. Best used under a platform where an opponent is standing or a well timed anti-air attack. Very powerful. 21%
  • Down Smash: Spinning Splits. He does a 360° spin while doing a split, which comes out surprisingly fast, for a move of DK, and hits on both sides at the same time. However, it does have some ending lag. 19%

Other attacks

  • Ledge attack: Jumps onto the stage backwards, ramming into opponents with his back. Long range, low knockback, 5-6%
  • 100% ledge attack: Climbs back onto the stage slowly, pausing when half on to slap opponents in front of him. Very short range, low knockback, 5-6%
  • Floor attack- Kicks on his back, forcing his body down, then picks himself up and kicks on the other side. 6% damage
