    Dixie Kong's Support Thread

    Information

    Yes, the ponytail swinging chimp with the pink tank top is here! Dixie Kong would be an excellent addition to the Smash Bros. universe alongside her friend Donkey Kong and her boyfriend, Diddy Kong. Imagine all the drama that could happen in that encounter! So, in support of Dixie Kong, I decided to make this thread to bring in the best and brightest Dixie fans to discuss/analyze/speculate her chances for Smash 4! If you have any information, pictures, move sets, color swaps, costumes, or anything else to add to the main post, please PM or just post in on the thread.

    Any and all discussion concerning Dixie is welcomed but please be respectful towards members. While negative feedback is welcomed, any type of dis-respective or rude behavior won't be tolerated so please keep that in mind when talking. As well, please keep the discussion on track so we avoid unnecessary rabbit holes. Discussion of the Donkey Kong series is welcomed as well as Dixie's role within the Smash universe (so please don't talk about Ridley in the Dixie thread is what I am saying).

    I don't have a creative or witty name for those who support Dixie Kong but if you are interested in supporting Dixie, please PM me that you support her and we will add you to the fan membership. Within time and with enough members, we could possibly create a group or membership for Dixie Kong supporters. However, in the meantime, this is what we have to work with. Other than that, let's show Dixie Kong out support and let's discuss!

    Yesss, I was waiting for this thread to sprout up. Dixie Kong is definitely one of the characters I really want to see playable. She doesn't have too much standing in her way either, which is nice.

    The vine lasso seems to be a bit weird. I would've imagined more of a hair whip, but I guess that's what her Forward Smash is for. Otherwise, I agree with the moveset, though one thing I don't understand is why she's put into a helpless state when attacked out of her Hair A'copter, as it would mean she could potentially be gimped to hell if facing a character with a great aerial game, like Meta Knight, who can Shuttle Loop her, knocking her far away from the stage, and there's nothing Dixie can do to get back on, seeing as she's helpless and can't use any B moves, including her Hair A'copter to try and recover again.

    Dixie unfortunately has to compete with the likes of K. Rool. Roster space is quite competetive - we could potentially get a roster of only 45, and it's 50 at best. We won't be getting 4 DK reps.

    Dixie has been irrelevant since her titular game - in DK64, she was replaced by a clone of herself. Dixie can't turn small, you say? Well, I don't recall DK being able to become invincible in the past either. . .After DKC3, all Dixie was ever in was spin-offs, while K. Rool remained as the main villain in every major title (He has a better track record than either DK or Diddy). Yes, he wasn't in the likes of Jungle Beat or DKCR, but nor was anyone else, unless we're going to start arguing for Tiki Tong as playable.

    K. Rool has more moveset potential than just about anyone (Not to insult your moveset, it's actually one of the better ones I've seen on here), and fan demand is consistently much higher for him than Dixie.

    http://www.smashboards.com/showpost.php?p=13983124&postcount=577

    The main argument Dixie Kong has is that she was in the forbidden 7 and thus Sakurai considered her at some point. However, she was considered as part of a tag-team with Diddy Kong.

    http://www.smashboards.com/showpost.php?p=12889473&postcount=1

    Dixie Kong was never intended to be her own character. She was intended to be a Nana to Diddy Kong (And yes, Nana does have her own data in the files). Dixie Kong is not notable/important enough to warrant her own character slot, and Diddy Kong's moveset is pretty rock solid with the addition of Bananas for the Down Special.

    Yes, this girl right here is one of the most biggest expectations to be in Sm4sh. DKC3 was my first game and boy, that game was just FANTASTIC.nnot to mention it feels so home due it's Scandinavia-like world: I live in Finland, so.

    Anyway, I wish she's as accessible as Diddy was, and fun to use too. So gonna feel home with her if she's confirmed playable.

    We won't be getting four DK reps, fine. My money is on Dixie, you know, the character Sakurai showed interst in?

    Also, I can definitely see us getting four Donkey Kong characters.

    Dixie Kong had two of her own games, and is the third main hero of the DKC games, which Sakurai seems to love. Lots of ignorance in your post sir.

    To be fair, Dixie was only the star character in Donkey Kong Country 3 because she was a break out character, in a similar vein to Diddy Kong in Donkey Kong Country 2. Obviously the popularity wasn't as strong as Diddy Kong, hence why she simply appears in some spin off games nowadays.

    I would drop Oli in a heartbeat for Dixie. Okay, maybe not. But I would use both of them regularly for sure. I can see it now. Gliding across the screen and ending everyone with her glorious ponytail.

    I think she could only be a fourth DK character, and she doesn't really excite me all that much, but I'd welcome her inclusion.

    I whole heartedly expect Dixie. Starring in 2 of the 3 games that set the direction of future DK titles and with known interest by Sakurai? Yeah her chances are extremely high.

    Looking forward to all the zany hair moves she would undoubtedly have in place of fists or weapons.

    Dixie Kong should be in SSB4 alongside K. Rool. She was playable in two DK games. For those who say we won't get 4 DK characters, you must be reminded that the DK series is the fourth or fifth most popular Nintendo franchise. And if the Kirby series got two new reps in Brawl, I don't see why it wouldn't be possible for the DK series. If a franchise like Star Fox, Fire Emblem, Kirby gets four characters in SSB4, then there is no reason for the DK series not to also get a 4th rep.

    Dixie Kong moveset I made a while back. Completely "Canon"

    ^B Hair-copter: On the ground it works similar to Ice Climber’s spin attack, only lasts a little longer, and moves quicker. It is however, slightly weaker as well. In air the move is a useful gliding tool.

    B Chewing Gum: Hold down B, and Dixie will begin to blow a bubble. The longer you hold it, the bigger the bubble gets, but if you hold it too long it will EXPLODE in your face and cause you damage. When you release it it slowly floats across the stage, acting as a moving bomb, one touch and BOOM! You can use it’s slow moving properties to your advantage and aim to knock your opponent into it, if you’re cool.

    B> Hair Grab: Dixie whips her Ponytail forward for an extra long reaching grab. If the opponent is too close to you however, it will simply act as a normal attack, and just hit them. So it can be used as a hair slap, or a hair grab. YOU DECIDE!

    VB Barrel throw: Dixie puts her long blonde ponytail to work, and throws a barrel forward. Depending on how long you charge B, you could get a wooden barrel (Just rolls normally) a metal barrel (Bounces, but moves slower), or a TNT Barrel (Explodes when it comes in contact with something/someone, but moves the slowest)

    But it is entirely in the realm of possibility to get two extra characters in a popular franchise. Especially since Donkey Kong is a popular, relevant, and successful franchise with numerous spin-offs.

    So what about Falco, Wolf, R.O.B., Jigglypuff, Mr. Game and Watch, or Ice Climbers.. I wouldn't consider all those characters extremely relevant. Ice Climbers was added in order to add a classic character as was Mr. Game and Watch and R.O.B. Falco and Wolf are side characters in Star Fox, a relatively dead series with no original games (excluding Star Fox 64 3D), and Jiggly isn't even a Pokemon mascot.

    I would place Dixie Kong is the same spot as the likes of Peach, Zelda, Meta Knight, Lucario, etc. Oh, save for the fact she had her own game and continues to appear in Donkey Kong games as well as spin-off games. In addition, considering the success of the newest installment in the Donkey Kong series for the Wii, I wouldn't be surprised if they released Donkey Kong Country 2 with features both Diddy and Dixie.

    None taken but I think many other characters have a much more potential move set (Saki, isaac, Palutena, etc) than King K. Rool. I understand many might think Dixie could be a Luigified clone of Dixie but, with the team Sakurai has assembled, this shouldn't be a huge problem.

    Yes, Sakurai chose to separate the two which ended up Diddy being a top tier character. The same can go for Dixie.

    She also has a potential move set, considered a heroine for the series, unique play style, a big fan base, relevant within both Donkey Kong and Mario, and had her own series which could have a reboot in the near future if they decide to continue with Donkey Kong Country 2.

    It was removed because of difficulties, not because Sakurai thought Dixie would be a bad character.

    Nor was Diddy but he did perfectly fine.

    And Dixie could be rock solid too if you gave her the chance.

    Shortie, can I add your moveset to the front post?

    If you support, Dixie, please help support this thread by adding information, ideas, move sets, arguments/counter-arguments, and pictures! Just PM me what you want added :)

    Oasis, can I add this to the front post?

    Go ahead. :3


    My only complaint about Dixie is that she's another monkey (don't get technical with me). I just think that would LOOK BAD if she was the only newcomer for DK. Sakurai has a habit of making similar characters similar, so I think it's safe to say she's bound to be SIMILAR to Diddy. Which I think is appropriate to an extent. BUT ALSO REALLY BORING IF SHE'S THE ONLY NEWCOMER FOR DK. Even so, she would definitely have enough to set herself apart from her boyfriend.

    Also I would expect her to be unlockable. Both her and Diddy on the starter screen together would look bad BECAUSE OF AFOREMENTIONED REASONS.

    Thanks guys. I uploaded it to the first post!

    Honestly, I would expect King K. Rool before Dixie but we can never know what Sakurai will do. That being said, I still think that Dixie Kong has the second best chance to be included.

    I found this and felt like putting it up.

    Dixie Kong! I loved DKC2 and DKC3. If Dixie Kong is in Smash, I would accept her either as a solo character, or teamed with Diddy Kong, or even teamed with Kiddy Kong.

    Dixie Kong Moveset

    I made my moveset with a Diddy & Dixie King team in mind. The team will NOT act like the Ice Climbers. The uncontrolled partner will follow closely behind the leader in the shadows without attacking or taking any damage. That partner will also not use their recovery move to save themselves, instead they will go into a falling animation & will still stay very close to the player; hovering by them. When the leader loses a stock, the partner will jump into a barrel & disappear in a cloud of smoke like a reverse entrance. Partners are switched by a taunt.

    There's that WORD again!

    So far, Sakurai does not care about reps. The only series he really tries to cap are the big ones and that's to keep them in line with the smaller ones. It's also not the first time we've seen a series get two characters (every Smash game has done it in fact).

    Dixie might have a better chance than K. Rool (although I would prefer a schizophrenic, bi-polar crocodile to another chimp) for two reasons.

    1. Data found for her character as playable in Brawl. Yes, only has a tag team partner... however, this leads to point number two.

    2. Easier to include her. Lucas had the model of Ness and similar specials. Same with Wolf and Fox. Dixie can have different A attacks, but similar specials. Also, her model would be very similar to Diddy's.

    Meimoe, do you mind me putting your move set and palette swap on the front page?

    I know one argument against Dixie is that Dixie and Diddy were originally meant to be a tag team type character but, instead, Diddy was made as a separate character. This was due to technical issues. However, from this decision, Diddy became a top tier character. I figure if they could do the same for Diddy, they can do the same for Dixie :/

    I'd like it if Dixie Kong is able to make it in, along with King K. Rool.

    In terms of the Diddy/Dixie duo, I think that it's better that the two are separate from each other; they don't exactly operate in the same way after all.

    I agree. I think it is very feasible to receive two Donkey Kong characters. It is a big enough franchise with a deep history with Nintendo.

    So I'd like to make a an official Dixie Kong move set where all the supporters (those listed under "members") help create. I propose people post full move set or a a Specials-only Move set or a Move Set without specials.

    We then decide which moves to take from those posted move sets to create a very detailed and professional move set that the members put together.

    Is anyone interested?

    Not at all :D

    Also, it's MelMoe not MeiMoe

    I too think that both Dixie & King K. Rool should be playable. If only one makes it in this game then it is obvious the other will be requested for the next. With DK, Diddy, Dixie, & K. Rool, I think the Donkey Kong series will have its 4 stars.
    If Dixie does become a partner for Diddy, I really hope they keep his moveset intact; definitely his banana. I actually like the idea of a true tag-team & that it represents the DKC games; but she can stand on her own as well.

    I for sure support Dixie, i really thought she would show up in brawl along diddy, but o well. Based on dkc returns, i dont think the kremlings are usable in away because of RARE, so dixie should pan out fine for a roster spot.

    I updated the front post, Melmoe. Feel free to check to see if everything is accurate!

    I mentioned it yesterday but is anyone interested in putting together a collaborative move set for Dixie based on input from all the members in this support thread? If so, let me know!

    Agreed. Hell would have to freeze over for Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong to be cut. And a Diddy/Dixie duo would take away from both characters, as well as be broken.

    There is no reason both Diddy Kong and K. Rool can't be playable. Both character can add a lot to smash, are popular, unique, and both can have play styles we haven't seen in smash before. Above all, both Dixie Kong and K. Rool would make make people want to play this game (assuming they're done right, which by the way, would be hard not to do).

    Ok, where should we start?

    Oh & can u add my note in the beginning from my moveset post? So that it explains how a Diddy & Dixie team won't be like Popo & Nana. Thanx.

    Dixie would be a great and long overdue addition to the roster, but I think she'd benefit from a partnership/tag-team, but im in full agreement that her partner shouldn't be Diddy but instead should be Kiddy Kong.

    I think as of right now, we should start looking at the posted move sets on the front page and picking which moves we think are best or most interesting.

    Ok. Well her up b will obviously be some variation of her ponytail copter move.

    I hated how I couldn't think of anything for her b move other than Tiny Kong's feather bow. I like ur Vine Lasso idea & could definitely see her using it. The Orange Grenade move would also be a nice .

    Jiggly isn't actually all that popular anymore in Japan. It's only popularity stems off from the anime, Smash, and as a first generation. Most Japanese kids don't even know who Jiggly is anymore. Pokemon such as Zorua, Victini, that Chichilla Pokemon, Blitzle, Emonga, Pachirisu, the desert Croc, and Candeluure (i think that is it's name) are becoming increasingly popular.

    Jiggly may be more popular with old school players but the newer players recognize the newer pokemon over older pokemon.

    Melmoe, I really liked your move set.
