He uses his hands in many of his attacks, but the most powerful of all his Special Moves is his neutral one, the Giant Punch. Press the button once to start swinging your arm, charging the blow. Then when you're full, you can save it up untill the right moment and release it.
-Standard Special Move: Giant Punch-
A full charged Giant Punch is very strong.
To get back on solid ground, Donkey Kong doesn't really offer much. His Up Special Move will travel a bit horizontally, but won't get you higher up at all. However, it's commonly used as a combo move!
-Up Special Move: Spinning Kong-
Don't get trapped in it!
Slap your hands on the ground to deal multiple hits to your opponents, trapping them for a good period of time. Don't overdo it! The attack gets weaker if you use it longer.
-Down Special Move: Hand Slap-
Think about your next move wisely!
Using your Down Special Move in the air won't really work well with the Hand Slap, so we gave Donkey Kong something extra!
-Down Special Move (Aerial): Hammer Fist-
Great spike move! Time it well.
His aerial attack is a bit unique. He actually does a kick backwards! This requires some precision to land, but it can lead to amazing combos.
-Aerial Attack: Back Kick-
It's a speedy surprise move!
Donkey Kong doesn't seem to use his head with much of these moves, but he makes great use of it here.. Quite literally. Bury your opponents in the ground with a well-timed Head Butt on the ground.
