    Kiddy Kong is a minor character in the Donkey Kong franchise, who is a main character in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, as well as Dixie's cousin.

    Why He's Not an Excellent Cousin

    1. His goofy/ugly design, mainly his blue pajamas and enormous mouth. On top of that, his character design is incredibly lazy, with it being deliberately intended to look like a miniature or infant version of mh:greatcharacters:Donkey Kong.
    2. The ear-piercing, loud cry he makes when he loses a life. The cry is even louder in the Game Boy Advance remake.
    3. The only reason why he was created was to be a sidekick. True, other sidekicks like mh:greatcharacters:Diddy Kong, mh:greatcharacters:Dixie Kong, Luigi from the mainline Mario franchise and Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog exist for the same reason, but at least those guys have more personality.
    4. His water-skipping move is not so useful, and isn't used too often either.
    5. Unlike Kongs such as his brother mh:greatcharacters:Chunky Kong, Kiddy Kong receives almost no character development, or even has a character.
    6. He is overall pointless and useless for the most part.
    7. He has barely appeared again after his debut outside of the re-releases of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie's Double Trouble! and the Game Boy port of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Double!, though he made his big 26-year old comeback in The Super Mario Bros Movie., showing how unpopular and pointless he is.
    8. He was only put in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie's Kong Double Trouble! because neither Donkey Kong nor Diddy Kong could be playable and do not appear until the player beats Kastle KAOS, despite the game having Donkey Kong's name in the title.
    9. He is considered a clone of Donkey Kong, and also has almost no importance to the series. You could easily replace him with, say, Tiny Kong or another character, and the game would still be the same.
    10. His face in the game over screen of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! is very uncomfortable.
    11. Due to his massive weight, Dixie Kong is severely disadvantaged when she uses the Team-Up move, moving very slowly while carrying him, and not being able to throw him very far.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. He is the 'Strong Kong' of the game, being able to defeat some enemies that Dixie Kong cannot.
    2. Kiddy can carry and throw barrels better than Dixie Kong can.
    3. Unlike Donkey Kong and much like Diddy Kong, Kiddy Kong is able to throw Dixie Kong so she can reach high places.
    4. His design can look cute, depending on your opinions despite WH'sNK#1, especially in The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
    5. Despite his annoying traits, he is a good natured baby who is brave and helps Dixie Kong save Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong from King K. Rool, fighting many bad guys including the King himself.
    6. He did get some character development and makes a cameo in The Super Mario Bros. Movie as he is shown driving on Rainbow Road, though that's not saying much.
    7. "WOAH..... BIG MAN!"
      • (after falling off a giant ramp, screams, jumps, and drives on Rainbow Road) "Wahoo!"


    • Despite his unpopularity, he was supposed to appear in Donkey Kong Racing and makes a cameo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a spirit, which you can get by enhancing the Dixie Kong spirit.
      • Also, in the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze direct, it was mentioned that there will be a 4th playable character, and everyone thought it would be either Kiddy or Funky Kong (but instead, Cranky Kong was chosen, while Funky was added in the Switch port, leaving Kiddy with nothing).
