Diddy Kong is a young Kong who serves as both the sidekick and best friend of Donkey Kong. Diddy was created by Rare, and first appears in the Donkey Kong title Donkey Kong Country. Since his debut, Diddy has become one of the main characters within the Donkey Kong franchise, and even received his own spinoff title, Diddy Kong Racing, later remade for the Nintendo DS as Diddy Kong Racing DS. Like Donkey Kong, Diddy has also appeared in several Mario spinoff titles, usually as a playable character.
