Interesting tidbit, but Dixie's viewcount on Smashboards is actually 4th overall, behind only Geno, Isaac and Shantae. It doesn't mean a whole lot, but it shows Smash fans are very interested in her despite what some people may claim.

Brandnew:

Geno the Star Warrior 5.3 million berries!

Isaac the Earth Mage 1.7 million berries!

Shantae the Half Genie 1.4 million berries!

Dixie Kong the Hair Rocker 0.67 million berries!

Bandana Dee the Star Warrior 0.47 million berries!

All wanted by Smashboards and the World Government!

I know some of you won't get the One Piece reference but I know BravadoMan_13 BravadoMan_13 will.

I wanted to say i am so happy for Dixie in Mario Kart Tour, i would love to have her in Smash someday, she is actually the only DK character i really like alongside Tiny and this is a step in the right direction for her.

Unfortunately i see all the hate Mario Kart Tour gets, i know most of us here play console games but i think deminishing the mobile game industry is not the way to go, even if you don’t like it Mario Kart Tour and other games such as Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes are considered main line titles and saying this game is not a real Mario Kart game is a little sad, the controls and gameplay are pretty good and innovative as well, the best possible adaptation of Mario Kart to mobile in my opinion, however i feel the real problem is how unfair the rubies (in game currency) are, but Nintendo has slowly been giving more of them as of late, anyway the game is not really newcomer friendly at this point with a lot of content locked if you have not been playing since day 1 (i have, but i wouldn’t imagine starting the game all over again)

Anyway, congratulations for this accomplishment and hopefully if you want to get started into the game you will be able to reroll for Dixie next week, i will try to pull for her myself, love you all and maybe Dixie will be Smash DLC

P.D Also i think is a bit unfair to complain about alts in a mobile gacha game, that’s just how the model and tons of gacha work with new costumes for characters instead of new ones, obviously it would be a different situation if this happened on console game though.

P.D 2: I want more Pauline alts please ✨

I can't speak for everyone but my problems with Mario Kart Tour have nothing to do with the fact that it's a mobile game and everything to do with the fact that they're selling Diddy Kong for 40 US dollars.
Wait... Wtf?! 40 dollars for one freaking character?! To hell with that!

What is this revive Wrinkly movement, and how do we stop it.

To be clear, I mean physically revive. It's good that Wrinkly is a ghost.

Figuratively, I would revive Wrinkly as a character, bringing her to a new DK game, making her playable as a ghost.

As a ghost.
It will NEVER stop!

In all seriousness though, Wrinkly would be the last kong I'd expect to be promoted in any series. Even Swanky would be likelier.

I liked Wrinkly, maybe the next DKC game will include more Kongs. I hope they do, I’d like to see Tiny and Dixie together again. They’ve been in DKRDS, Barrel Blast, and Sluggers together but no adventure game so far.
Yeah, I just wish we knew what Retro has been up to all this time prior to Metroid Prime 4 so that we can finally move on and stop expecting them to do anything new with DKC. It'll have been 6 years since Tropical Freeze's initial release, and still no word.

Lemmington's chances of staying on this roster are looking pretty slim right now!
O-o-oh, s-s-sorry, I didn't mean that. That's just my --- that's just my accent. Yes, that's it.

What I meant to say is that I personally never saw proof Wrinkly died either.

In fact, I hear the rumble pack in her N64 controller never went cold. The Bear shopkeeper lied. What are they hiding?

Hasn't Wrinkly made more appearances post-Rare though?

Much better! Yes let's get started on this investigation. I'm gathering evidence as we speak.

So Dixie Kong is one of the Yonko now, huh? An Empress of Smashboards! (It's funny that there are exactly four individual character threads with replies in the five digit range).

I heard Elma the Blade Colonel is climbing her way up to being the 6th Emperor/Empress as well with a bounty of 0.46 million berries!

Just make sure that bounty won't decrease after this game's DLC ends, Masked Man's doesn't even have enough to buy a single ship.

If Dixie were to be playable, should she have the blue guitar or the yellow one?
It should change with different Alt costumes, of course!
But I'd say the standard pink Dixie should have the blue guitar, to pop more against her initial coloring.

All the real ones want the kneepads back. Don't @ me.

Honestly though knowing Sakurai, I could see him giving her the kneepads back despite Nintendo's apparent cohesive character design policy. Based on what was included in Smash, I think Sakurai recognizes the reverence people have for the original trilogy, almost to the detriment of Retro's representation. Maybe I'm just trying to see something that isn't there, but I honestly believe Sakurai understands this series better than the higher ups at Nintendo. Imagine if Sakurai made the next DK game, how insanely cool would that be?

That's for sure. Most notably how you see DK Island in :ultkrool:'s Final Smash.

I wouldn't mind it at all if his next project is a DK game. Maybe that's what the Vifam rifle was meant for, a new kong firearm...

I heard Dixie's Haki might even be stronger than Shanks which is surreal to think about. Imagine Dixie's hair being completely covered in Advanced Haki that's some crazy **** to think about. Her hair covered in Haki would slice any foe in half.

Yellow.

As far as talking about kong promotions concerns us, how many of the kong clan do you think will become playable after the series eventually comes out of its hibernation?
For the DK series? About 7 or 8. Most notably Lanky and Tiny returning to the fol to join DK, Diddy, Dixie, Cranky, and Funky on their next adventure perhaps.

For the Smash series? That depends on where the roster is going in Smash 6. If half of the roster get's cut than I barely see even Dixie making it into the next game. If everyone comes back than I would say maybe 5 to 6 newcomers. Dixie, Cranky, and Funky to be exact. Dixie is highly requested, Funky would be a easy Echo, and Cranky would be another great addition. After them, our DK roster in Smash will be practically perfect with anyone else afterwards being more of a bonus than anything else.

No no, I'm strictly talking DK series.

If they continue promoting support kongs, I wouldn't mind Candy firing watermelons or something. :laugh:

I want the ENTIRE Kong clan back. Yes, this includes Swanky, Chunky, Kiddy, and the like. Nintendo dropping the majority of them kind of killed my interest in DK's character for a long while, if I'm being honest.

No thanks, I don't want Fire Emblem characters in the next DK game.
