DK Kongs is team lead by Donkey Kong in the game Mario Superstar Baseball. Its additional names are the DK Explorers, DK Wild Ones, and DK Animals. The Sub-Captain, Diddy Kong's, team names are Diddy Survivors, Diddy Ninjas, Diddy Tails, or Diddy Red Caps. The team has set players in Challenge Mode, but the players can be chosen while in Exhibition Mode. If the team is faced by another opponent, they will play against them in the Donkey Kong Jungle stadium.
Mario Superstar Baseball
The DK Kongs have the most widespread team in the game. They have two Koopa Troopas, two Koopa Paratroopas, both the Goombas (Goomba and Paragoomba), and three different, notable primates (Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and Dixie Kong). The DK Kongs team marked Dixie Kong's first appearance in any traditional Mario game. Dixie Kong is also the unlockable of the team, unlocked by defeating Challenge Mode as the DK Kongs.
Mario Super Sluggers
The team reappeared in Mario Super Sluggers, now known as the DK Wilds; when the Sub-Captain, Diddy Kong, heads the team, its name is Diddy Monkeys. Its home stadium is DK Jungle. The DK Wilds is primarily composed of Donkey Kong and some of the Kong family members. Almost all the Kongs share good chemistry with each other. However, in an ironic twist, the team is also composed of King K. Rool and four Kritters, who all have bad chemistry with the Kongs. Baby DK is also compatible all the Kongs (excluding the captain and sub-captain) along with other teams, such as the Yoshi Eggs, where he shows good chemistry with all the Yoshis, and the other baby players who are on the Mario Fireballs and Peach Monarchs. All the common enemies who appeared in the previous installment have now sided with Wario.
The team has powerful hitters and excels at defense, though a couple of them are poor runners.
