Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a fighting game released on the Nintendo Wii. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong appear as playable characters in the game. It is the third game from the Super Smash Bros. series. The game sees characters from many different Nintendo video game series, as well as "third party" characters, Sonic the Hedgehog and Solid Snake. It was released in 2008.
 Relevance to the Donkey Kong Series
Both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong appear as playable characters in the game, with Diddy Kong making his first appearance in the series and Donkey Kong making his third appearance in the series. Hackers have managed to find unfinished files for Dixie Kong, which may suggest that she was once planned to be added as a playable character.
 Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong is one of the heavyweight characters in the game, and his attributes have not changed from the previous games. He is the second heaviest character in the game, which makes it harder to KO him but easier to hit and combo him. His best moves are slow but deal a great amount of damage when they hit. He can pick up opponents like he does when he picks up and holds a regular Barrel, and walk around before throwing the opponent at will.
 Diddy Kong
Diddy Kong is a lightweight and agile character in the game. He is moves very quickly and is able to combo really well and has several known strategies. According to the Brawl tier list, he is ranked 2nd overall, higher than DK's 18th placement. He is known for his ability to throw Bananas and create combos with them, as well as his Peanut Popgun and Rocketbarrels.
 Subspace Emmisarry
 Donkey Kong
The Koopa Troop and Bowser are trying to steal the Banana Hoard as a Hammer Bro. drives away containing all of the bananas of Donkey Kong, he watches from a cliff. The Hammer Bro and Goombas on the car notice Donkey Kong and shoot Bullet Bills at him before Diddy Kong appears from the bush and shoots the Bullet Bills with his Peanut Popguns. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong give chase after the Hammer Bro to retrieve their Banana Hoard. After following him for a short period, they meet up with Bowser, who has some strange type of gun called the Dark Cannon, which reveals he is working for the Subspace Army. He charges the cannon, noticing this, Donkey Kong charges his Giant Punch and launches Diddy into the sky as he sacrifices himself as Bowser shoots him and gets turned into a trophy.
Later on, Diddy Kong, Fox McCloud and Falco Lombardi meet on a ship that is carrying the trophy that contains Donkey Kong. Falco helps Diddy by following the ship with his Arwing and letting Diddy drop onto the ship by using his Rocketbarrel and shoots at the ship. After seeing this, Captain Falcon and Olimar help out and jump to the ship and help free Donkey Kong before fighting the Primids and other enemies.
The ship would take them all into the factory that produces the Subspace Bombs, and they would encounter various R.O.B.s who live on the island. They join up with Pikachu and Samus Aran as they see the Ancient Minister. Ganondorf orders the R.O.B.s to activate all of the Subspace Bombs, the Ancient Minister would reveal himself as R.O.B., the leader of the other R.O.B.s. Captain Falcon would call for his Falcon Flyer so that the group could escape but not until they can defeat Meta-Ridley.
Donkey Kong and the other heroes would enter the Subspace and meet with Tabuu, who would turn everyone into trophies with his Off Waves. But King Dedede had anticipated this and created badges to revive certain fighters back to their original form. This team, Luigi, Ness and King Dedede, would rescue Donkey Kong and most of the rest(Kirby would rescue some). They would recruit Bowser, Ganondorf and Wario to fight Tabuu. Sonic the Hedgehog would appear before the final battle by weakening Tabuu's Off Waves so Donkey Kong and the other heroes could defeat him.
 Diddy Kong
Diddy Kong helps Donkey Kong in recovering the bananas stolen from the Koopa Troop, only for Bowser to appear and try to turn Diddy into a trophy with his Dark Cannon. But Donkey Kong would use his Giant Punch to knock Diddy out of the way and sacrifice himself instead. Diddy Kong would land at a lake where he encounters Rayquaza who takes down an Arwing containing Fox McCloud, who joins forces with Diddy Kong to take on the False Bowser before fleeing from the real thing. They would reach the Swamp and Bowser would succeed in cloning him into a Fake Diddy Kong. Once Diddy has been revived, he'd go on to defeat his clone with the help of Fox and Falco Lombardi.
Upon finding out where Donkey Kong is being taken, Falco would drop Diddy off on the ship so that he could rescue him. He would receive help from Captain Falcon and Captain Olimar as they fend off the Subspace Army, all four would end up in the Subspace Bomb Factory and meet up with Samus Aran and Pikachu. R.O.B would reveal himself before the island is set to detonate and they make their escape via Falcon Flyer after defeating Meta-Ridley.
Tabuu would turn all of the gathered heroes into trophies when they entered the Subspace. But Diddy would be one of the fighters that is rescued by King Dedede before they head into the Great Maze and ultimately defeat Tabuu, with a little help from Sonic the Hedgehog.
 Trophies And Stickers
There are several items from the Donkey Kong series that appear as a Trophy or Sticker in Brawl. Most Animal Buddies and Kongs from Donkey Kong Country appear as trophies and stickers. Trophies are only handy for getting 100% for the game, while stickers can be equipped to Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong to help them in the Subspace Emissary.
 Codec Conversations
Codec Conversations are conversations done by Solid Snake on the Shadow Moses Island stage. To activate the conversation, the player will need to wait for the AUX Call to appear on screen and then press select.
 Donkey Kong
Snake: Otacon, there's a gorilla wearing a tie here. He's huge. Otacon: That's Donkey Kong. As you can tell, he's got strength to spare. He may be king of the jungle, but he lives in a house just like you or me. And he seems pretty smart--well, for an ape, anyway. The Donkey Kong who fought that epic battle with Mario was this guy's grandfather. Snake: That was a long time ago. What about this Donkey Kong? Does he get along with Mario? Otacon: Nope, they're still at it. Seems like they're always competing in something--kart racing, sports, you name it. Snake: A chip off the old block...
 Diddy Kong
Snake: Otacon, there's a chimpanzee here wearing a Nintendo hat. Otacon: That's Diddy Kong. He's Donkey Kong's partner. Not only is he lightweight, he can use a wide range of weapons as well. He can fly using those barrel jets on his back, and he can shoot nuts with his Peanut Popgun. Snake: Peanuts? As in the ones in the little shells? Are you serious? Otacon: Wait, here's the best part. You see them lying on the ground after he shoots? If you pick up some of those peanuts, they'll restore your health a little. Snake: Hmm. Edible ammunition, huh... Times sure have changed...
