The Helicopter Spin is an ability exclusive to Dixie Kong in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Donkey Kong Land 2, and Donkey Kong Land III. She can glide by whirling her ponytail in a circular motion very much like a helicopter to reach far away places where other Kongs can't reach with them usually being bonus areas. This causes her falling speed to drastically decrease and gives her some horizontal movement. Tiny Kong uses a similar move of the same name in Donkey Kong 64 as she has ponytails too. Her ability will also be used in the fifth Donkey Kong Counry game Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
