The DK Dash Attack is a move used in Yoshi's Island DS. While the player carries Baby DK, pressing +Control Pad down and the Eat button (Y Button by default) makes him perform a shoulder charge. The DK Dash Attack can be used to defeat almost any enemy in the game. For example, Baby DK can dash through several Pointeys at one time. He can also smash open crates, which often contain stars. In a couple of levels, the DK Dash Attack is the only way to get over pits or one-way openings, as there is a ceiling straight above them, making jumping over them impossible.
