Tiny Kong is a female Kong from the Donkey Kong series. She is Dixie Kong’s younger sister[3][4] and as such, she has two male cousins[5], baby Kiddy Kong and his older brother Chunky Kong.

Like Lanky Kong, she first appeared in the game Donkey Kong 64 as a little girl, using her pigtails to accomplish different tasks. She is best known for her gymnastics and magical shrinking ability which her name stems. She is currently voiced by Kahoru Sasajima[2], but was previously voiced by Eveline Fischer[1] in Donkey Kong 64.

Like her role-model Candy Kong, Tiny's dream is to be a supermodel. Before that she was known to be a genius at juggling numbers/managing banana coin savings, being a Tax Officer prodigy at handling DK Island's financial ecosystem, and having a hobby in fashion designing.

After her first appearance she has not had any other important roles in any other platform game. Since Diddy Kong Racing DS, Tiny now appears in almost every Donkey Kong spin-off game, however she appears to have aged and is all grown up, becoming a fully developed adult or at least a very late teenager. She has even appeared in a Mario spin-off game. With only a few exceptions, she is playable in every game in which she appears.

Biography

Quest for the Golden Bananas

Tiny Kong's alternative artwork from the game Donkey Kong 64 for Nintendo 64.

In Donkey Kong 64, Tiny is one of the many Kongs imprisoned by the Kremling Krew at the start of the game. She is found in the area Angry Aztec, and can only be released by Diddy Kong. Once Tiny was released, she could collect purple Bananas, coins and Blueprints. She could also activate feather switches, pop purple balloons to get bananas, and slam switches with her face on them. Also, when she gained the ability Mini Monkey she could go to the Banana Fairy Queen and get the banana cam. Here are her statistics:

After being freed, Tiny began her adventure on DK Isles, where she visited the Banana Fairy queen and found a total of six Bananas. In Jungle Japes, Rambi the Rhinoceros made it possible for Tiny to get into a cave after she found a few golden Bananas and finished familiarizing herself with her surroundings. Tiny used her Mini Monkey ability to get inside difficult places to reach and get Golden Bananas.

In Angry Aztec, she had the chance to get her Saxophone, Feather Bow, and her Mini Monkey ability. With help of the Squawks the Parrot and her Mini Monkey ability, she was able to enter many different temples. Inside the many temples she found many Golden Bananas and even a Banana Fairy. The temples were often booby-trapped.

Tiny played a large part in the Frantic Factory. After looking for Golden Bananas in the testing room, Tiny found a sentient race car, who told her he had a Golden Banana for the first place winner. After beating the car and winning the race, Tiny searched for more Golden Bananas and came across a Donkey Kong arcade game and a Golden Banana which was only obtainable by using her Mini Monkey ability. After searching the factory high and low for Bananas she gave the needed amount of bananas to Scoff who opened the door leading to the boss. The door revealed Tiny's face, meaning she would be the only one able to fight the boss; Mad Jack. After beating it, Tiny won the third Boss Key to K. Lumsy cage.

Tiny met a Mermaid in Gloomy Galleon, who told her about her stolen pearls. Tiny eventually found the pearls in a giant chest and brought them back to the Mermaid, who gave her a Golden Banana in return. She later opened an underwater door in a large sunken ship. After thoroughly searching the ship she found another Golden Banana. Tiny found her last Golden Banana in the area in another sunken ship.

Tiny's quest for the Bananas took her to Fungi Forest. Tiny found her first Golden Banana in the forest in a mountain infested with purple Klaptraps. After beating them she got a Golden Banana and a strange seed. After finding a good place to plant it, Tiny planted the seed in a loamy patch of soil. The seed grew into a giant plant and gave her a Golden Banana, which she could get with help of Squawks. Tiny later found a house, and by entering at night she could fight a giant Spider Queen. Tiny had to hit a certain amount of small spiders to make the Spider Queen open Her eyes, which she could shoot feathers at. After being sufficiently damaged, the Spider Queen shrunk. Tiny eventually beat the small Spider Queen, revealing a Golden Banana.

In Crystal Caves Tiny visited Cranky, who sold her a potion which would give her the power MonkeyPort. Tiny used her new power on a teleport pad deep in the caves which took her to an igloo-like crystal were a Golden Banana was. Tiny found another teleport pad which took her to were the Giant Kosha was. Tiny beat it and stopped the raining rocks.

After entering Creepy Castle, Tiny found the car she raced in Frantic Factory, who wanted revenge. Tiny beat him again and obtained another Golden Banana. Outside was a trail of purple bananas and a trash can. With help of her barrel and a mushroom she entered to the trash can, where she was attacked by flies. She, along all the Kongs, fought the boss of the level, King Kut Out. She would fight the boss after Lanky Kong was defeated.

When the Kongs took the Creepy Castle key to K. Lumsy he opened the last level, Hideout Helm. The Kongs quickly realized that they had a limited amount of time to deactivate the Blast-O-Matic. But with help of Snide they extended the time. After deactivating the machine the Kongs found out that King K. Rool escaped in a plane, but left behind the last key. His plane was soon struck down by K. Lumsy and crashed on DK Isle.

In the final battle against King K. Rool she was the fourth to fight him. She had to become small and enter through a hole in King K. Rool's shoe and use her Feather Bow on his toes.

During the game she gains different abilities. Her first individual ability is Mini Monkey, while the second is Ponytail Whirl, and the last one is Monkey-Port. Her instrument is the saxophone; with this she can use the ability Saxophone Slam. Her weapon is the Feather Crossbow. Aside from this she can gain Simian Slam, Super Simian Slam, and Super Duper Simian Slam, which all Kongs have.

She is the only Kong that can enter where the Banana Fairy Queen is found, and using Tiny's Monkeyport is the only way of getting to Hideout Helm. She was also playable in the Multiplayer mode.

She appears in the three endings of the game. In the first ending she appears playing with Chunky, until he throws her very high and gets mad at him once she lands. In the second ending she appears riding K Lumsy, along with all the other Kongs. In the third ending she uses her Ponytail Whirl to fly, but ends up crashing.

Spin-Off Appearances

Diddy Kong Racing DS

Tiny Kong's artwork from the game Diddy Kong Racing DS for DS.

After an eight year hiatus, Tiny makes a fully returning appearance in the game Diddy Kong Racing DS to replace Banjo (a Rare character from the original Diddy Kong Racing now owned by Microsoft). This game is Tiny's spin-off debut. Her acceleration and handling are both medium but she has a slightly low top speed.

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

Tiny and her sister were first called by Diddy Kong; he explained that Timber the Tiger from Timber Island asked him to help him defeat Wizpig, and also help to find out what happened to Drumstick the Rooster, which was transformed into a frog by Wizpig.

During the quest they arrived to Dino Domain, and after beating all the challenges in the area Tiny (or one of the other racers) had the option to race the brainwashed dinosaur Tricky the Triceratops through the valley, if she beat him he will open the Silver Coin challenges. Once all the challenges were completed they could have another race against Tricky, if Tiny and the others 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 the cold Snowflake Mountain, if Tiny and the others managed to beat all the trials they had the option to race against the Bluey the Walrus in a downhill mountain. After defeating him, he opened the Silver Coin challenges form 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 Tiny 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 the aquatic brainwashed Bubbler the Octopus. After he was defeated he opened the Silver Coin Challenges. Once the Silver Coin challenges were completed Tiny and the other racers had the option to race him again. Finally after he was defeated and taken permanently out of Wizpig's spell he gave Tiny and the other racers the third piece of the amulet.

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

With all the pieces of the amulet, Tiny and the others find Wizpig and raced him, whom after being defeated teleports away in panic. Tiny, along with all the other racers, held a celebration. During the celebration Wizpig arrives and asks for revenge, but this time in his home planet Future Fun Land. After a long race with many obstacles Tiny and the others defeated him and again held the final celebration this time without problems.

This is the first game she appears as playable along with her elder sister and also this is her second playable appearance after seven years. Although this was the first racing game in which she appeared, she had previously raced two times against a car in Donkey Kong 64, in the levels Frantic Factory and Creepy Castle.

Tiny looks like she grew up and became a young adult; appearing much taller, feisty, hip, sassy, sarcastic, boisterous and more cutesy in this game, and (taking a bit of inspiration from Candy Kong) was given a Girly-Girl appearance to make her visually look distinct from her older sister, Dixie who remained the same, creating controversy and leading some to believe that their relation was either changed or forgotten, but this is false (their relation is indeed still the same[5] since it is common for younger siblings to have growth spurts that make them outgrow and look older and different than their actual older siblings, just like Mario being the older twin brother and Luigi being the younger yet physically taller twin brother). She was the only character to appear in this game that made a debut in Donkey Kong 64, and was one of the three female racers and also one of the three playable Kongs.

Donkey Kong Barrel Blast

Tiny Kong's artwork from the game Donkey Kong Barrel Blast for Wii.

Tiny Kong's next appearance was in the racing game Donkey Kong Barrel Blast for Nintendo Wii. She is an unlockable character, unlocked by completing the Sapphire Cup on a Rookie Setting with a Kong Character. She is very fast and her rival is Kalypso, a Kremling with similar stats. She has excellent boost, good speed, and medium agility. In this game she attacks her opponents by swinging her ponytails like an helicopter, possibly using the Ponytail Whirl. Like all the playable characters she has the ability to perform Wild Moves.

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

In the Single Racing cut-scene Tiny can be seen, along with Lanky, Dixie and Donkey, in front of their rivals, Kalypso, Klump, Kass and Kritter. In the Records cut-scene she can be seen in the middle of all characters looking at the records. In the Cranky's Flight School cut-scene she is one of the Kongs that appears practicing. She also appears on the start screen. She also appears in Candy Challenge #14: Help Tiny Kong!, Donkey has to help her beat Kalypso, this challenge is level 2 in difficulty.

Her winning celebrations include her spinning around, throwing punches, or putting her hands on her waist and pouting. When she loses she cries and looks at the ground, disappointed.

Her drums are green and purple in the middle, matching her beanie hat, and have a white flower in them, which matches with her clothing. This was the second racing game in which she appeared and was also her first appearance on the Wii console.

Other Appearances

Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Country 3

Tiny Kong made cameo appearances in the Game Boy Advance version of the game Donkey Kong Country 2. Tiny appears as multiple Kong hostages during some rescue missions at the Funky's Flights II. Diddy and Dixie must pilot a Gyrocopter, searching for the hostages, and, sometimes, save them from Zingers.

In the GBA version of Donkey Kong Country 3, Tiny and other Kongs appear during the third challenge minigame at the Funky's Rentals, where Dixie and Kiddy have to prevent them from being taken away by Kremlings using their boat.

Super Smash Bros. series

Although Tiny has never appeared playable in any Super Smash Bros. game, there are various references to her. She is mentioned in the DK Rap which appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee and eventually Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, she has a sticker and trophies. Her trophies do not mention that she was Dixie's sister, but instead mentions her high speed in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast and her Ponytail Whirl from Donkey Kong 64. She also has a sticker which uses her artwork from Donkey Kong 64.

  • Trophy descriptions from Super Smash Bros. Brawl:
    • North American version: "A cute, young Kong in pigtails, a knit cap, and jumbo earrings. In Donkey Kong 64, she could extend her airtime after jumps and fly through the air with helicopter hair. Also a participant in Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast, her high speed is on full display."
    • European version: "A cute, young Kong in pigtails, a knit cap, and jumbo earrings. In Donkey Kong 64, she could extend her airtime after jumps and fly through the air with helicopter hair. Also a participant in Donkey Kong: Jet Race, her high speed is on full display."
  • Trophy descriptions from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U:
    • North American version: "Debuting as a small member of the Kongs, she can shrink even smaller with Mini Monkey. Unfortunately, she hasn't put as much effort into mastering flying with her ponytails as Dixie has. Remember: these Kongs are trained professionals and perform stunts under Nintendo supervision. Don't try flying with your ponytails at home!"
    • European version: "She isn't quite as small as when we first met her, but with her Mini-Monkey ability, Tiny Kong can still live up to her name! She can't fly with her ponytails like Dixie can, but she can still twirl to glide through the air. Remember: these Kongs are trained professionals. Do not try flying or gliding with your ponytails at home!"

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Tiny Kong appears as a spirit.

Mario Super Sluggers

Tiny Kong appears as playable character in the game Mario Super Sluggers.[6] She is a sub-character and is an unlockable character. This is her first appearance in a sports game and also her first appearance in the Mario series. In this game she can play baseball matches against many other characters. In challenge mode she has to help Mario and the others beat Bowser and his son Bowser Jr., by playing baseball matches and beating their teams. Tiny joins the cause after being rescued from Bowser Jr.

Her bat is sky blue with a white flower, similar to the one on her top. She is the only Kong character to have a normal bat. Her pitching entrance includes her spinning. When she pitches the ball and the character batting misses three times she celebrates by turning back and putting her right arm up, while her left arm down. Her batting entrance includes her waving her hand and then preparing to bat. As other team players she can use Star skills while pitching that make the ball go faster or slower. She has good chemistry with her sister, Diddy Kong, Funky Kong, Donkey Kong and even Baby DK. She has bad chemistry with King K Rool, Kritter and Birdo. When the team she is in wins, she celebrates by waving her hands from one side to another. Her only ability is Clamber, meaning she can climb walls to catch the ball.

She is great at pitching, batting and running, she is great at fielding. She is the only balanced character from the Donkey Kong series. In this game her speed is not as notable as in other games; in the Donkey Kong series, Tiny is one of the fastest Kongs. But this time, Dixie Kong, and even Diddy Kong, are slower than her.

Appearances in Other Media

Comics

Donkey Kong in When the Banana Splits

She appeared in the comic Donkey Kong in When the Banana Splits, were the golden bananas are stolen, again by the Kremlings. Unfortunately for King K. Rool, the kremlings he sent stole the golden bananas in bad time, as Tiny Kong and the other Kongs were home. Tiny Kong, along all the playable Kongs from Donkey Kong 64, track King K. Rool easily through the jungle and after passing all Kremling's traps and beating all the enemies, they have a final showdown against King K. Rool and the Kremling in which the Kongs win and get their golden bananas back.

Through the quest Tiny Kong showed some of her abilities she got in Donkey Kong 64 from Cranky Kong's potions, such as Ponytail Whirl. Her Ponytail Whirl worked slightly different, her ponytails rotate vertically instead of horizontally, but still have the same use. Also, like in the games, she attacked with her ponytails.

N-Gang

She also appeared in the N-Gang comic series, but only had minor roles. She is seen in a group screenshot next to Banjo and Kazooie; Diddy, Donkey and King K. Rool are also seen.

These were her only appearances in comics and were also her only appearances out of games. In these comics she appeared with her old look.

Online

Tiny Kong is available in the Mario Super Sluggers online card collection. She was from the first characters to be released. In Double Play she can be combined with Funky Kong to get the Great Clambering Kongs video, in which she appears.

  • Card Description: "Tiny Kong is the smallest of the Kongs and doesn't boast the power of her bigger friends. But she is by no means the weakest player in the game. Great team chemistry with the Kongs make her a valuable pick."

Profiles

Donkey Kong 64 Game Manuals

"I thought this was Dixie Kong until she told me that she is Dixie’s younger sister. Bah, kids these days all look alike! You’ll probably recognize Dixie’s trademark hair spin technique, but Tiny can also shrink in size – although I reckon that one’s nothing more than a marketing gimmick and won’t even be in the game!"
—Cranky Kong in the Donkey Kong 64 Instruction Booklet, page 7[7]
"Dixie's VERY little sister brings a big dose of flower power to the Kong's campaign. You'll find her pigtails perfect for pugilism and not too bad for a helicopter ride from the treetops. Tiny never shrinks from her responsibilities—even when she shrinks herself physically for a mouse's eye view of the action."
Donkey Kong 64 Player's Guide, page 5[4]

German Donkey Kong 64 Website

Tiny Kong's description from official German Donkey Kong 64 website.

  • NAME: TINY KONG
  • OCCUPATION: TAX OFFICIAL
  • HOBBIES: TOOTING THE SAXOPHONE, FASHION
  • FAVORITE DISH: WATCHES HER WEIGHT, ONLY EXTRA-LIGHT MEALS
  • FAVORITE MOVIE: BANANIC
  • GREATEST HERO: KONGIA SCHIFFER

"Tiny Kong has long been known as a multi-talent and wonder child. Her greatest wish is a career as a super-model, but unfortunately Tiny is much too short for this occupation. Besides, she would have to leave the island, and that is out of question for Tiny. Instead she prefers to juggle numbers and manages the banana coins savings and the financial system of the island.

While doing this she never loses sight of her dream, though, and often presents her own fashion collections to the islanders. Despite her multifarious talents Tiny is always trying to follow the footsteps of Dixie Kong, who together with Diddy has made a name for herself as an adventurer. One day, when she observes how Diddy is attacked by cunning Kremlings, she sees her big chance. Unfortunately she has overstimated her abilities and is now in captivity, just like Diddy.
"

Physical Appearance

Artwork of Tiny Kong sporting her initial design, from the game Donkey Kong 64 for Nintendo 64.

At the base, Tiny has brown fur, blonde hair that is usually tied into pigtails, and teal eyes. In her first appearance, she was short in size and wore a colorful beanie and blue overalls with a flower on them, as well as a pair of sneakers.

Later on in her teen/adult form, Tiny is now taller than her big sister, as well as Diddy Kong. She is slightly taller than Donkey Kong, but she is not as tall as Candy Kong. She keeps her beanie, but now wears blue top with a flower on it, along with matching blue sweatpants and orchid sandals. She wears makeup consisting of magenta eyeshadow and painted nails, and has accessories like jumbo earrings and white fur wristbands.

Why the Change?

Tiny's redesign has created some controversy. Tiny looks like a young adult, but is bigger than Dixie, the true older sister. This made some fans believe the fact that they were sisters was forgotten. They had never been referred to sisters again since Diddy Kong Racing DS. Some believed the fact they were sisters never made it to Japan, but this theory is not true. Later on, it was confirmed in Rare's Scribes, that Nintendo was the one that requested to change her look, though her current look does bare a resemblance to Paon's character designs.[8] It is more likely that they are indeed still sisters[5] since it is common for younger siblings to have growth spurts that make them outgrow and look older and different than their actual older siblings (just like Mario being the older twin brother and Luigi being the younger yet physically taller twin brother).

The most plausible reason for her redesign could be that because she replaced Banjo in Diddy Kong Racing DS, they changed her so she could better match his stats.

Personality

Tiny is groovy and tomboyish, with a confident demeanor all of which are akin to her elder sister Dixie Kong, albeit expressed differently, as Tiny is more openly boisterous (whereas Dixie is comparatively more reserved/subdued) and she has a somewhat similar machismo/boisterousness to Diddy Kong.

She is also quite feisty, willing to face opponents much bigger than her; although this has back-fired once as after she witnessed Diddy Kong fight off the Kremlings, she overestimated her own abilities and was captured.

In more recent games she is depicted as more of a Girly-Girl in a somewhat cocky yet matured fashion, but shows less of a tomboyish streak and more of a focus on dance-like movements similar to Candy Kong's dancing.

Powers and Abilities

Much like her sister she uses her ponytails for attacking enemies, slowing and controlling her descent to the ground and can also extend her jump by rotating her ponytails. In Donkey Kong 64 she was one of the fastest Kongs, she had a very high jump, she could also attack enemies by jumping on them and she is good at swimming and could breathe underwater. In Donkey Kong Barrel Blast she once again used her ponytails to attack and break things open. She, like all the other racers, could also perform Wild Moves in this game. In Mario Super Sluggers she had the ability Clamber.

In Donkey Kong 64 her abilities were:

  • From Cranky's potions:
    • Simian Slam: she can press green buttons that are marked with her face.
    • Super Simian Slam: she can press blue buttons that are marked with her face.
    • Super Duper Simian Slam: she can press red buttons that are marked with her face.
    • Mini-Monkey: with the help of her special barrel she can shrink and enter small places.
    • Ponytail Whirl: uses her ponytails as helicopter and can expand her jump, she can also make her fall slower.
    • Monkey-Port: with the help of her Kong Pad she can teleport.
  • From other Kongs:
    • Saxophone Slam: she uses a saxophone to defeat enemies and can make secrets appear. She got this from Candy's music shop.
    • Feather Bow: she uses a feather bow to defeat enemies or to activate switches. She bought this from Funky.

Relationships

Dixie Kong

Tiny Kong's most notable relation is with her older sister[5], Dixie Kong. They have appeared in only a few games together, but Tiny has still never shown any kind of affection to her sister. In the remake of Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Country 3 Dixie had to save her in a mini-game. An interesting fact is that her trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl did not mention that the two were sisters. The two share Girly-Girl and Tomboyish traits, and also good chemistry in Mario Super Sluggers.

Diddy Kong

Diddy is Tiny Kong's sister's boyfriend. In Donkey Kong 64 Diddy was the only one that could free her. In Diddy Kong Racing DS, Diddy chose her and Dixie as some of the characters that were going to help Timber, and were also the only two Kongs chosen. In the remake of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Diddy had to save her in a mini-game. Diddy may treat Tiny as his little sister. They also share good chemistry in Mario Super Sluggers.

Chunky Kong

Chunky is Tiny Kong's cousin. At the end of Donkey Kong 64 they are shown playing, signifying that they have a good relationship with each other. When Chunky is about to be chosen in the Tag Barrel, he gets scared and suggests the player instead chooses Tiny.

The Kremlings

Tiny Kong is presumed to have a bad relation with King K. Rool and the Kremlings as all the other Kongs do. King K. Rool kidnapped her in Donkey Kong 64. She is believed to have an especially bad relationship with Kalypso, as the two were designed to be rivals in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. She also seem to dislike specially Klaptraps, as she is shown in the DK Rap hitting one. In Mario Super Sluggers, she has bad chemistry with Kritter and King K. Rool.

Other

Tiny Kong shares chemistry with Funky Kong and Donkey Kong in Mario Super Sluggers, hinting that they might have a good relationship. She is also Kiddy Kong's cousin, but she has never interacted with him. She is believed to have a good relation with other Kongs like Candy, Cranky and Wrinkly Kong.

She is presumed to still be enemies with Mad Jack and Wizpig, who she fought in past appearances. She has also befriended such characters as the Banana Fairy Queen, Timber the Tiger, and the Mermaid from Donkey Kong 64. Recently, she may have gained two new enemies; Bowser and Bowser Jr., because she helped Mario and the gang beat them in Mario Super Sluggers. In this game she has bad chemistry with Birdo.

Trivia

  • Tiny Kong's initial conceptual art[9] appears to be inspired by the monkey character Abu from the Disney[10]'s animated movie Aladdin[11], particularly the fez and the vest. The beanie hat in her final design may be a reference to this.
  • Tiny Kong was one of the few characters confirmed to appear in the canceled racing game Donkey Kong Racing for Nintendo GameCube. The game was probably canceled because of Rare being acquired by Microsoft, but a trailer and few screenshots were released prior to this.[12] In the trailer, she is sporting her initial appearance and Tiny can be seen riding Enguarde the Swordfish.
  • Tiny Kong in video games and other media has showcased many feats.[13]
