Diddy Kong is a very agile fighter in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. He can use the enemy’s movement to his advantage and can perform some quick attacks depending on the enemy’s position. His best moves include placing Banana Peel traps across the map. You can trap your enemies, grapple, and easily deflect them with his agility.

His neutral combos hit the target three times. The first attack will deal 2 damage, the second will deal 1.5 damage, and the last will deal 4 damage along with throwing the enemy away. Diddy Kong will use his right hand to slap the enemy twice and end the attack with a powerful circular ball that knocks the enemy away. This is a short-range attack, so you will need to get up close and personal with your enemy.
Diddy’s Dash Attack will unleash three attacks in quick succession with the first two dealing 2 damage and the finishing hitting 3 damage. This is a wheel strike in which Diddy will plunge at his enemy and then perform a wheel attack with three hits. In the end, your enemy will fly in the sky. This gives Diddy a chance to continue with another attack or combination.
Diddy’s attacks will deal 9 damage and the awakening will deal 7 damage to enemies.
