Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest[edit]

Dixie swimming

In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Dixie joins Diddy on his journey to rescue Donkey Kong from Crocodile Isle. Dixie's unique and trademark ability is the Helicopter Spin, which allows her to glide across the air. If Dixie hits an End of Level Target hard enough at the end of a level, she takes out an electric guitar and briefly performs on it before exiting.

Diddy and Dixie eventually reach The Flying Krock, where they get in a boss fight against Kaptain K. Rool. They eventually defeat him and free Donkey Kong. Later in the Lost World, Diddy and Dixie encounter Kaptain K. Rool again at Krocodile Kore. After the Kongs defeat Kaptain K. Rool, Crocodile Isle starts to sink underwater, and the Kongs evacuate the island. In the ending, Dixie is seen with Donkey Kong and Diddy, watching as Crocodile Isle sinks underwater.

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble![edit]

Dixie Kong has her first starring role in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. In the backstory for the game, Donkey Kong and Diddy go on a fishing trip. After a few days of them not returning, Dixie goes to the Northern Kremisphere to search for them. She goes to Funky's Rentals, where Funky Kong gives her Kiddy Kong to babysit. Kiddy joins Dixie in her adventure to find Donkey Kong and Diddy.

As they travel through the worlds, Dixie and Kiddy encounter many Kremlings along the way. At Mekanos, they first encounter the Kremling Krew's supposed new robotic leader, KAOS. At the end of KAOS Kore, Dixie and Kiddy fight KAOS and its creator, Baron K. Roolenstein. The Kongs defeat both KAOS and K. Rool and free Donkey Kong and Diddy, who were revealed to be inside KAOS.

At the end of Dixie and Kiddy's adventure, all of the rescued Banana Birds carry them up into the clouds to the Queen Banana Bird, The Banana Birds free the Queen Banana Bird from her barrier. Dixie and Kiddy then ride the Queen Banana Bird as she chases after Baron K. Roolenstein, and the Queen Banana Bird drops a large eggshell on K. Rool to stop him.

The first part during the end credits shows an album made by Dixie, titled Dixie Kong's Photo Album, and it shows a photograph and name for nearly every character and enemy that appear in the game.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze[edit]

Dixie Kong with Donkey Kong in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Dixie reappears as one of the playable characters in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, along with Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and Cranky Kong. At the start of the game, the Snowmads blow away the four Kongs to a faraway island, the Lost Mangroves.

Dixie can spin her ponytail to slow Donkey Kong's descent. Unlike her earlier appearances, Dixie can briefly gain altitude by using her Helicopter Spin in midair. Dixie can also use her ponytail for Donkey Kong to fly upward or to slam her ponytail on the ground in a similar fashion to Donkey Kong's Hand Slap. Like Diddy and Cranky, Dixie also has her own popgun, the Gumball Popgun. If Dixie and Donkey Kong use the Kong POW move together, every enemy on-screen turns into Gold Hearts. Unlike the second and third Donkey Kong Country titles, Dixie uses her hands to carry an object rather than her ponytail.

Donkey Kong Land series[edit]

Donkey Kong Land 2[edit]

Dixie reappears in Donkey Kong Land 2, where she has the same role and abilities as in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.

Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

Dixie in Donkey Kong Land III

Dixie is the main character of Donkey Kong Land III, with Kiddy acting as her sidekick, just like Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.

In the backstory, Donkey Kong and Diddy enter a competition in search of the Lost World. Dixie is left behind to babysit Kiddy. Dixie wants to enter the competition but was not considered for the contest. Dixie, wanting to prove herself as competent, decides to join the search for the Lost World, and she takes Kiddy with her.

During their adventure, Dixie and Kiddy encounter many of the Kremlings and eventually Baron K. Roolenstein at the end of Tin Can Valley. The Kongs battle him another time in the Lost World itself.

Donkey Kong in: Banana Day 24[edit]

Dixie and Diddy in "Banana Day 24"

Dixie appears in the comic, "Donkey Kong in: Banana Day 24". Dixie is sleeping in a palm and is suddenly awakened by Squawks the Parrot. Afterward, Diddy and Cranky explain to her that it is Christmas. After learning what day it is, she suggests to prepare a Christmas party, but, suddenly, she starts to shiver. The Kongs quickly discover that snow is falling from the sky, something Dixie and the others has never experienced yet. At the TV, the Kongs learn that the temperature has dropped all over the world and also that the president of the United States of America invites for a summit to find a solution to the problem. The Kongs decide to travel to the United States to talk with the president. Dixie and the others ride their Animal Friends to the nearest airport where they take the Jumbo Barrel to travel to Washington D.C..

The president tells them that a huge UFO pulling the Earth away from the sun is the cause of the low temperature. He provides them with a space shuttle, and with help of Cranky, Dixie and the others are launched into the aliens' space shuttle. At the space shuttle, Dixie, Diddy and Donkey Kong quickly notice the aliens look like them but bigger and green and blue. The Kongs learn that the aliens do not want to dominate Earth, and what really happened is that the aliens thought Earth was a giant Coconut. After giving bananas to the aliens in exchange of them returning Earth to its original temperature, the Kongs head back to Earth where they are hailed by the people for saving them. Back in the jungle, Dixie and the others finally celebrate a Christmas party. At the end Dixie enjoys the starry sky along her boyfriend.

Donkey Kong Country cartoon[edit]

Dixie in the Donkey Kong Country cartoon

Dixie Kong makes sporadic appearances on the Donkey Kong Country cartoon produced by Nintendo and Nelvana. On the show, her personality is drastically different than the one portrayed in the games; her clothing is also different, somewhat resembling what her sister, Tiny Kong wears. Her ponytail is also smaller than it is in the games. Often, Dixie loses her various pets. She is also more trusting than the other Kongs, befriending a recently fired General Klump when no one else can. She is the only Kong included in the show that makes her debut in Donkey Kong Country 2. Dixie was voiced by Louise Vallance. Her first appearance in the show is in episode seven, Kong for a Day. In this episode, she cheers up Donkey Kong after Funky gets angry with him, and she also goes with him when he has to leave the island. When they are in the jungle, a Krusha imitates Donkey's voice and tricks Dixie, making her believe that Donkey Kong is saying bad things about her and Diddy.

In the episode From Zero to Hero, she is one of the characters reunited to see Cranky's new experiment, the x-ray machine. When Bluster enters, saying he has more rights than Dixie and the others, just because he is rich, she gets mad and tells him that he is inconsiderable. As Candy has to go to work, Dixie is the next character to enter and have x-rays. Later, she is the one that informs Cranky that King K. Rool has the Crystal Coconut.

In the episode Buried Treasure she convinces Candy of going with Bluster on a treasure hunt to mountain mines. After the treasure is found Dixie, along the other Kongs and King K. Rool start fighting for it.

Bumm-Badabumm Im Urwald[edit]

Dixie is one of the main characters in the Donkey Kong comic, "Bumm-Badabumm Im Urwald". Here, she aids both Diddy and Donkey Kong in tracking down their stolen bananas and defeating Kaptain K. Rool and the Kremling Krew. She goes to Donkey Kong's house, because she heard noises. There, Donkey informs her and Diddy that all the bananas are gone. After, they go and check if their banana depot is also without bananas, and they realized that it is empty as well. Dixie finds a hole from where the thieves entered. Diddy enters the hole and finds a Kremkoin. Then they realize that the Kremlings are behind the disappearance of the bananas and decide to give the Kremlings a lesson.

Dixie and Diddy in the comics

The three of them enter the hole that leads to the jungle. Then Dixie notice a wasp, and quickly, Donkey Kong throws a barrel at it. Dixie looks at the stings and says that a sting would have hurt. In the way, they find Rambi and the three of them ride him. Afterward, they find themselves around many Kremlings. Rambi takes out all the Kremlings, and they continue their way to King K. Rool. After they reach the mountains, Rambi leaves them. They start climbing the mountain until they arrive to a place where the Kremlings pull the rope up. Donkey Kong throws Dixie upwards so she can let the rope down. After they reach the top, a Necky starts attacking them, but Donkey Kong takes him out quickly. Afterward, they reach the portal, but it is locked. They successfully open the portal with the Kremkoin. Inside the portal, they are attacked by Kremlings. After beating the Kremlings a giant Kremling appears. The Kongs escape from him through a narrow tunnel.

In the tunnel, they find a mine cart. They start racing against the Kremlings, but, as the distance between them increased, the mine cart becomes dangerous. After the rails ended, the Kongs land on a swamp. Diddy then realizes they are not the only ones swimming in the swamp; Krocheads are all around them. They all quickly go up to a crashed boat, and while thinking, Donkey Kong remembers something. He starts to jump on flies until he reaches land. Diddy and Dixie repeats. Dixie realizes they are in the Lost World. Dixie climbs a wall and sees King K. Rool in the other side with all the bananas. Suddenly, Dixie falls and the Kremling sees her. Donkey Kong and Diddy quickly jumps and helps her. A fight against the Kremlings starts. King K. Rool starts shooting pineapples, but Donkey Kong evades them. He then finds an explosive barrel and throws it to him, which defeats him. The Kongs finally recover the bananas.

Super Mario-Kun[edit]

Dixie Kong appears in the fourteenth issue of the Super Mario-Kun manga comics. Even though this issue is based on Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, the end of the comic features Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Dixie is featured with her boyfriend, Diddy Kong, while battling Kaptain K. Rool.

Donkey Kong 64[edit]

Although Dixie does not appear in Donkey Kong 64, Cranky mentions her a few times in the manual. The game marks the debut of Dixie's sister, Tiny, whose abilities are similar to Dixie's.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Dixie's trophy as seen in a video, alongside Diddy and Xananab

Dixie also has a trophy in her likeness in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Her trophy also mentions about her being quick and nimble, and it also mentions times she helped save Donkey Kong.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Dixie Kong also appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Her trophy mentions about her ponytail helping her for flying and attacking. Her sticker is based on her artwork from Donkey Konga 2. Her sticker can only be used by Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong, and it increases their launch resistance by 39.

Incomplete character data for Dixie Kong in Super Smash Bros. Brawl was found, implying she was once planned as a character, but was dropped for unknown reasons. In an interview with Famitsu, Sakurai confirmed that Dixie Kong was planned to be a character with Diddy as a tag team[1]. One of Diddy's alternate costumes matches the colors of Dixie Kong.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

Dixie Kong reappears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Her trophy description mentions that she loves adventuring with Diddy Kong and refers to her as Diddy's girlfriend. It also mentions how she's capable of using her hair for swimming faster, soaring in the sky, and lifting barrels.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Dixie is an item in the Smash Tour. She gives an extra double jump to the characters for the duration of the battle.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Dixie Kong appears as a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Her spirit can be leveled up and turned into a spirit of her with Kiddy Kong in the raft from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!

Donkey Konga series[edit]

Donkey Konga 2[edit]

Dixie appears as a playable character in the 2003 game, Donkey Konga 2; her first appearance on the Nintendo GameCube. In this game she is one of the three characters available to play different songs with the bongos and help win money to buy bananas. She also has the option of playing mini-games.

Donkey Konga 3: Tabehōdai! Haru Mogitate 50 Kyoku[edit]

She returns in the Japan-only sequel, Donkey Konga 3: Tabehōdai! Haru Mogitate 50 Kyoku, as one of the four playable characters. She again plays songs on the bongos.

DK: King of Swing[edit]

In DK: King of Swing, Dixie makes two brief appearances in Adventure mode. She appears in the opening cutscene, and later in the ending one, celebrating with the other Kongs when Donkey Kong recovers all of the medals for the Jungle Jam Tournament.

Dixie is a playable character in the Jungle Jam mode. Dixie and Wrinkly Kong are tied for the best jumping ability, although Dixie has the worst attack.

DK: Jungle Climber[edit]

Dixie plays a very small role in DK: Jungle Climber, seen only in the intro and 100% cutscene. In this game, she is in a vacation in Sun Sun Island, with all the other Kongs. In the opening cutscene, she is seen playing beach volleyball with Diddy and Donkey Kong. Although she is not playable in story mode, she is playable in the game's wireless multiplayer mode as P3. Additionally, she hosts the secret stages, which provide DK and Diddy with several additional DK Coins needed to complete the game with a 100%.

Mario Baseball series[edit]

Mario Superstar Baseball[edit]

Dixie appears as a secret playable character in Mario Superstar Baseball, her first appearance in the traditional Mario franchise. This is also her first sports game. In this game she is voiced by Kahoru Sasajima. In challenge mode, she can help Mario and the others beat Bowser and Bowser Jr. She is unlocked by completing Challenge Mode with Donkey Kong's team.

In this game she appears as a technique team player on Donkey Kong's team. She has good chemistry with Donkey Kong and Diddy. She uses a stick as a bat, and the sweetspot is the middle of the stick. Her only talent is Clamber, meaning she can climb walls to catch the ball. In stats, she is tied with Baby Luigi and Toadette for the worst batting stat in the game, but she has average pitching and above average fielding and running.

Mario Super Sluggers[edit]

“Oh Donkey Kong, you crazy ape! You never listen to anyone!”
Dixie Kong, Mario Super Sluggers

She returns in Mario Super Sluggers. She appears as a team player once again on Donkey Kong's team. In challenge mode, she can be found in the DK Jungle stadium. After being saved from Dark Bones, she asks Mario and the others to find the stone tablet. After doing so she joins the team. She doesn't need to be unlocked in this game.

She has good chemistry with Tiny, Diddy, Donkey Kong, Baby DK, Funky, and the Pink Mii; she has bad chemistry with King K. Rool, Kritter and Dry Bones. Compared to the earlier game, her batting stat is has improved such that it is no longer the worst, though it remains quite low. Her pitching is worse than it was before and is now among the worst in the game, but her fielding was improved and her running was improved slightly. She again uses a stick as a bat. In this game she is the fastest Kong, but is the worst Kong at batting.

Online Card Collection[edit]

Dixie Kong is available in the Mario Super Sluggers online card collection. She is from the first characters to be released. In Double Play, she can be combined with Donkey Kong to get Donkey Kong's wallpaper.

Her rookie year is 1995, which refers to the year she debuted, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Her card appears in the Collection wallpaper and appears randomly in the Flipping Frenzy screen-saver. It also appears in the Collection Complete Poster, between Tiny Kong and Diddy Kong.

Mario Hoops 3-on-3[edit]

Dixie in Mario Hoops 3-on-3

Dixie makes her second appearance in a Mario spinoff in Mario Hoops 3-on-3, as well as her first appearance in a Nintendo DS game. She is an unlockable character in the game. Dixie is a speedy character, just like Diddy. She can also enter the tourney in which she and her team have to beat different teams.

Her special shot is the Cannon Shot, in which she starts spinning and suddenly a barrel cannon falls from the sky and catches the ball, then Dixie back-flips onto the cannon and shoots the ball into the hoop, followed by a red explosion and multicolored confetti.

Diddy Kong Racing DS[edit]

Dixie is a playable character in Diddy Kong Racing DS, replacing Conker from the original game. She has below average speed and medium acceleration and handling. She has a high-pitched voice in this game. Diddy Kong Racing DS is the first game which both Dixie and Tiny appear in, as well as Dixie's first appearance in a racing game.

Dixie Kong and the others on their way to help

Dixie is first called by Diddy Kong; he explains that Timber asks him to help him defeat Wizpig and to find out what happened to Drumstick.

During the quest, they race in several areas, and after beating all the challenges in the area, Dixie (or one of the other racers) races the boss guarding the Wizpig Amulet. If she beats him, he opens the Balloon Pop challenges. Once all the challenges are completed, they could have a rematch against Tricky. If Dixie and the others manage to defeat him, the spell on him would break, and Tricky thanks them by giving the piece of Wizpig's amulet he is guarding.

With all the pieces of the amulet, Dixie and the other manage to race against Wizpig, whom after being defeated, teleports away. Dixie, with all the other racers, holds a celebration. During the celebration, Wizpig arrives and asks for a rematch, but this time in his planet, Future Fun Land. After the rematch, Dixie and the others defeat him and again held the celebration, this time without problems.

Donkey Kong Barrel Blast[edit]

Dixie Kong with her pink bongos in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast

Dixie is a default character in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, along with Donkey and Diddy. Her stats are similar to Diddy's. She has his agility, but her boost is maxed (shared with the unlockable Tiny) and her speed is lower. Dixie's rival is Kass. Her drums are pink and have attached what seems to be sky blue upside down flowers. She attacks by swinging her ponytail in front of herself. As all playable characters she had the ability of doing Wild Moves. This is the second racing game in which she appears in and her first appearance on the Wii console.

In the Single Race cutscene, she can be seen, along Donkey Kong, Tiny and Lanky, standing in front of their rivals, Kass, Kritter, Kalypso and Klump. Also, in the Candy Challenges cutscene, Candy seems to be choosing who participates in the challenges and Dixie is raising her hand, while Kritter seems to tell her to be quiet. In the Options cutscene, she is seen running from side to side with a bongo or a toolbox while Funky Kong is fixing his bongos. In the Records cutscene, she is seen along Kludge, Tiny, Funky and Kip looking at a scoreboard. Because she is so small, she often jumps so she can see it as Kludge and Tiny are obstructing her sight.

Other appearances[edit]

There have been many toys based on Dixie Kong, including plushies and key chains, which are generally based on her cartoon look. There are also posters featuring her and even candies based on her.

She also appears in the board game, Nintendo Monopoly, where she takes the place of Atlantic Avenue. She costs $260. Her artwork is from DK: Jungle Climber.

In Super Mario Odyssey, there is a street in New Donk City named "Dixie Street", as well as a sign by the Crazy Cap shop reading "Dixie Theater".

Characteristics[edit]

Physical appearance[edit]

Dixie from Donkey Konga 3 when she wore knee-pads

Dixie has a thick blonde ponytail tied with a light blue band. She also has bangs, and the hair at the sides of her bangs is longer and curled. She has light brown fur and wears what appears to be a short pink top, while her face, ears, hands, feet, belly, belly button, and backside is exposed, revealing Dixie's pale skin. She can be recognized by her trademark pink beret. In one of her artworks she was shown to have a red headband under her beret but now she doesn't wear it anymore. She typically wears large blue pearl earrings, although these were originally small and golden. She is always seen wearing her top tied, though one exception is her official artwork for DK: King of Swing, were her top is not tied.

In the original Donkey Kong Country series, she has pink nail varnish on her toes, but this is removed in all games after Donkey Konga 2. Her beret used to have a gold Rare logo pin attached to it in some early pieces of official artwork, but this is seen only rarely and has only recently appeared in Diddy Kong Racing DS and has otherwise been removed entirely following Rare's purchase by Microsoft. She also wears pink knee pads, but these were removed in DK: King of Swing and later games. She was originally depicted with four fingers and toes, but was given five in Donkey Konga 2 and later games. Although she has been depicted with green eyes in official artwork since her debut, it wasn't until Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! were she was shown to have them in-game.

In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, the second team's Dixie in the Two Player Contest mode has purple clothes and red hair (the color of her bubblegum and juice box in her idle animations change to reflect this). However, in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, she has purple clothes and her normal blonde hair. In DK: King of Swing, her alternate colors for a second player (also selectable in single player by pressing up or down) include blue clothes and red hair, which may be a reference to her Two Player Contest colors in Donkey Kong Country 2. The colors for a third player reverse her hair and clothes, giving her pink hair and a yellow outfit, while the fourth player has is given a Dixie with dark purple hair and green clothes as default.

In the comics she has the same appearance as her original look, including the Rare pin. In the cartoons, she has much lighter, almost yellow fur. She still wears a pink beret, but has light blue shirt with a flower in it (which Tiny Kong's design is inspired from), pink converse shoes and does not have earrings.

Personality[edit]

She is very brave and has a love for adventure, and while she eagerly engages upon Diddy's quest to save Donkey Kong she is also happy to go on adventures herself, as seen when she saves both of them with the aid of Kiddy Kong in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble and searches for the Lost World in Donkey Kong Land III. In games such as DK: Jungle Climber, it is shown that she likes playing with Donkey Kong and Diddy. She is also one of the most active Kongs, and known to enjoy sports, joining in with Diddy and Donkey when they play basketball and baseball. Her demeanor is slightly tomboyish and assertive, but also cheerful and lively. She has a particular fondness for bubblegum, and can often be seen chewing and blowing bubbles, and even owns a Bubblegum Popgun which she uses in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. She is also very musically inclined, perhaps moreso than any other Kong, showing her love for guitars in her debut in Donkey Kong Country 2 and playing one during the ending of Tropical Freeze, as well as playing air guitar when left idle for awhile. She has a habit of headbanging her remarkable hair when playing guitar and appears to be fond of rock music. In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, she seems to have got a little more mature and a little less tomboyish. Her trophy description for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U implies that she probably takes great care of her hair. In Donkey Kong Country 2 when thrown away by Diddy or hit by enemy, she starts crying, this also occurs in Donkey Kong Country 3 after being thrown away by Kiddy or after being hit by an enemy attack (in an extra note, when a player enters a cheat in DKC3 (only in the SNES version), her crying sound effect occurs.)

In the cartoons she is portrayed as a friendly and somewhat childish character. In one of the episodes, she even befriends a Kremling. She is also shown to really care about the others; she always tries to help her friends. She also loves animals; during the show she has different pets.

Powers and abilities[edit]

Dixie Kong's greatest asset is her long, blonde ponytail. Her ponytail has the ability to rotate as a helicopter, allowing Dixie to slow down her fall, control her descent to the ground when she is in the air, and expand her jump. She can also use her ponytail to lift Barrels, attack enemies (as her sister in Donkey Kong 64), and as a propeller to traverse underwater. Her ponytail has significant amount of strength being able to toss Kiddy Kong into the air, lift Donkey Kong from the ground while using her helicopter technique, and even capable of pounding the ground. Although she is a bit slower than Diddy Kong, the versatility of her ponytail more than makes up for it. Swimming in the water is second nature to Dixie due to having grown up on an island.[2] In Mario Hoops 3-on-3 she had the ability Cannon Shot, which consisted in her summoning a barrel to shoot the ball. In DK: King of Swing, she's an exceptionally high jumper and can attack by performing an aerial attack, which glows red when charged. In Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, she attacks with acrobatic flips and had the ability of doing Wild Moves. In Donkey Kong Country 2, she talented in playing an electric guitar which she plays whenever the player finishes a level with her. She is also skilled at playing bongos. In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Dixie has a popgun of her own which fires bubblegum.

Trivia[edit]

Dixie Kong's page on other NIWA wikis:
  • Nintendo Power mistakenly and frequently referred to Dixie as Daisy Kong.[citation needed]
  • In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, while Dixie Kong is standing still, after she chews bubble gum, she sits down and drinks a banana milkshake before standing back up again. However, in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!!, she only chews bubble gum.
  • In Diddy Kong Racing DS, when Dixie's animation square shows up when being used by the AI after she attacks the player with a weapon, is overtaken by the player, or is attacked by the player's weapon, the Rare logo can be seen on her beret (although it is silver instead of gold), despite the fact that Microsoft Game Studios purchased Rare in late 2002.[citation needed]
  • In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Dixie will play air guitar when left idle for a awhile. She also plays guitar in the ending sequence, both referencing her love of guitars from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Her new guitar has a banana-themed design.
  • In the GBA versions of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Dixie has the same voice clips as Tiny Kong, recycled from Donkey Kong 64.
