Rambi using his Supercharge

Super moves[1][2] are moves first appearing in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. They are special abilities used by certain Animal Friends that can be charged up and released to allow the player character to reach higher or otherwise inaccessible areas. Super moves also appear in Donkey Kong Land 2, and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! They can be used by holding A Button and releasing, or Select Button in Donkey Kong Land 2 and R Button in the Game Boy Advance games. Three of the Animal Friends each have a super move of their own:

  • Rambi's "Supercharge"[3] (or super-dash) makes him run continuously until he hits an unbreakable wall. During his run, he can defeat numerous enemies at once. It also allows him to break through walls, allowing him to access Bonus Areas.
  • Enguarde's "Superstab"[4] is very similar to Rambi's move; like it, Enguarde's move allows him to break through underwater walls to access Bonus Areas and swim continuously (even through enemies) until he hits an unbreakable wall.
  • Rattly's "Superjump"[5] (or Super Jump)[6] is quite different; instead of dashing like Rambi or Enguarde, Rattly jumps much higher than usual, allowing him to reach areas and take objects located at greater heights.
