Mario franchise strategy guide/Kongs/Tiny Kong

Tiny Kong is a character in the Donkey Kong series, who first appeared in Donkey Kong 64 for the Nintendo 64. She is a Kong who has blonde hair and pigtails. She is officially known as Dixie Kong's younger but taller sister, and is a cousin to Chunky Kong and Kiddy Kong. She should also not be confused with the more common character, Dixie Kong.

BackgroundEdit

Tiny Kong was a Kong who is depicted as ‘cool’ in a very 1960’s manner through her clothing (a beanie hat and flower-patterned overalls. She also inexplicably wears shoes) and is a member of the Kong family. Tiny is the sister of Dixie Kong. She aids Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Lanky Kong and Chunky Kong in their mission to defeat K. Rool and his Kremling army in Donkey Kong 64. Tiny’s most notable feature is her ability to shrink down to a mouse’s size with the aid of the magical Crystal Coconuts. She is fairly stumpy, but her small size allows for a rather quick running speed. Despite her ponytails and all of the tricks that she is able to perform, Tiny is actually the weakest Kong in the group.

In her final fight with K. Rool, Tiny Kong attacks the Kremling king by shrinking to her smaller size and tickling his toes. She does so by entering through a hole in his left boot, and shooting them with feathers. Tiny's major boss fight in the game is with Mad Jack, a giant evil Jack In The Box (although she can be used in the fight against King K. Kutout)

Cranky Kong states on Tiny – ‘‘"I thought this was Dixie Kong until she told me that she is Dixie's younger sister. Bah, kids these days all look alike! You'll probably recognize Dixie's trademark hair spin technique, but Tiny can also shrink in size--although I reckon that one's nothing more than a marketing gimmick and won't even be in the game!"’’ This shows her relations including the content of language.

AppearancesEdit

In Donkey Kong 64, Tiny was rescued by Diddy Kong in the game’s second level, Angry Aztec. This was her first appearance in any game chronologically, but since other Donkey Kong Country games have been remade, she has appeared in positions set before this first appearance. Her outfit was a white T-Shirt, blue overalls, and white shoes.

Tiny's color is purple, she can make use of a crossbow firing feathers, and she plays the Saxophone. Tiny is extremely nimble, but quite weak in terms of attack power.

Tiny made a minor appearance in the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 2. In two of Funky Kong’s missions, players race to rescue Tiny from Zingers as she yells "Help!"

Tiny also appears in the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 3 in one of Funky Kong’s motorboat challenges.

In a trailer for the now-cancelled Donkey Kong Racing originally designed for the Nintendo GameCube, her appearance was redesigned with a different face, different fur and five fingers.

It is reported that she will appear in the upcoming racing games Diddy Kong Racing DS for the Nintendo DS and DK Bongo Blast for the Nintendo Wii. In Diddy Kong Racing DS, she appears to have a more teenager-like look and wears a spaghetti-strap shirt, sweat pants, flip flops, and some wrist wear. She is also portrayed as taller than Diddy (and, presumably, Dixie). The reason for this change is currently unknown.

DK rap verseEdit

This Kong’s got style, so listen up dudes
She can shrink in size to suit her mood.
She’s quick and nimble when she needs to be
She can float through the air and climb up trees.
If you choose her, you’ll not choose wrong
With a skip and a hop, she’s one cool Kong.
