Tiny Kong pulling off a smooth glide with Ponytail Twirl
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong 64|
|Abilities||Gliding through the open air|
The Ponytail Twirl, or Roundum Roundus is Tiny Kong's Potion Move granted to him by one of Cranky Kong's specialized potions which he gives each of the five Kongs as they progress throughout the vast game of Donkey Kong 64. It can be obtained for just 5 coins. These power-ups are much more humble and subtle than that of the Power Pad moves, granting the user things such as an extra-strong attack or extra move to add to the player's roster rather than invincibility and flight.
This Potion Move allows Tiny Kong to glide through the air by way of her blonde pigtails, similar to Dixie Kong's signature move in Donkey Kong Country 3. It's purpose is to either reach midair or high places across gaps, cross treacherous terrain such as lava beds, and sometimes soften dangerously-high falls. Being the younger sister of Dixie Kong, this characteristic ability of Tiny's was to be expected.
