Baby Donkey Kong is Donkey Kong's younger self in Yoshi's Island DS. He was stolen from his treetop home by Kamek and his Toady army during their massive kidnapping spree. However, DK met the Yoshis and greatly helped them in their quest to defeat the Koopa Troop. He has a monogrammed bib, just like the current DK has a monogrammed tie. DK is the most powerful of the babies.

Powers and Abilities

DK can climb vines and chains, even hang onto a swinging rope and using the momentum to move forward. If the player presses ↓ and then the swallowing button (either Y or B depending on control settings), DK can do a shoulder charge that can break through dirt walls, some enemies, and tough blocks. Eggs thrown by Yoshi have an explosive effect – it is possible to defeat more than one enemy and activate. Clouds, defeat enemies, or grab items just out of reach by a wall by the mini-blast. When a Yoshi ground pounds on poles, the pole goes all the way down on the first try, relating to DK's power.

In Mario Super Sluggers he is an unlockable playable character. He has a good chemistry with Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Yoshi, Dixie Kong, Tiny Kong and Funky Kong. With the Kritters and King K. Rool he has a bad chemistry. His chemistry with Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong is neutral.





  • It was unknown whether this is a younger Cranky Kong or a younger Donkey Kong. However, considering he has a monogrammed bib similar to DK's tie, the current Donkey Kong and Mario are around the same age and the striking resemblance to the current Donkey Kong, the latter is confirmed true.
  • Baby Donkey Kong has a tail unlike his adult self as it seems to have disappeared, likely due to being half ape and half monkey.
