Specials :GCB:
Neutral Special: Peanut Popguns

Diddy Kong uses the Peanut Popguns to simutaneously fire two peanuts that bounce on the ground.
Mashing "B" rapidly fires peanuts from the popguns. Holding "B" makes them fire explosive peanuts.
Peanuts also bounce off any opponent, shield or wall. Diddy Kong always bring 50 peanuts to battle.
(Origin: Donkey Kong 64)

Side Special: Chimpy Charge
Diddy Kong goes on all fours, runs in place for a breif moment and charges, performing a headbutt dash.
This allows him to dodge projectiles and break shields. Pressing "A" makes him perform the Monkey Flip.
If successful, Diddy will scratch the opponent and follow up with a double chop (A) or footstool jump (B).
(Origin: Donkey Kong 64 & Super Smash Bros. Brawl)

Up Special: Barrel Jet Boost
Diddy Kong activates the Barrel Jet mode on his backpack, charges it up and soars in any chosen direction.
The longer "B" is held down, then farther Diddy Kong flies. He can use the Peanut Popguns while doing so.
If "Y/ X" is pressed or Diddy Kong his attacked during flight, the Barrel Jet will fly away as a homing missile.
(Origin: Donkey Kong 64)

Down Special: Orange Grenade
Diddy Kong takes out an Orange Grenade, breifly aims, then pulls the pin to throw it forward in an arc.
Orange Grenades detonate in 5 seconds, allowing Diddy Kong or his teamates/ opponents to throw it.
Diddy Kong only brings twenty Orange Grenades in his backpack and can't toss more than 2 at a time.
(Origin: Donkey Kong 64)

Shield Special: Banana Peel
Diddy Kong takes a banana out of his backpack, eats it and tosses the banana peel forward/backward.
Any opponent who moves on a Banana Peel either slips and fall on their but or slides across the stage.
Diddy Kong has five bananas in his backpack per stock and can't use anymore once they have run out.
(Origin: Mario Kart & Super Smash Bros. Brawl)

Final Smash: Barrel Jet Barrage
Diddy Kong activates the Barrel Jet function on his backpack, then pulls out the Peanut Popguns before flying off-screen.
He'll reappear soaring across the screen in multiple directions while rapidly firing peanuts in the same direction he goes.
Afterwards, Diddy Kong will stop and fly toward the opponent closest to him, attacking them with an explosive Barrel Jet.
