Donkey Kong Power Strength

Donkey Kong's Power stat is pretty impressive, since there isn't such a huge drop in his other stats, such as Control and Speed. He has the exact same stats as Bowser, but Bowser's Power is higher by 3. Nonetheless, he's a great pick for players focused on a raw power playstyle in all game modes.

How to Use Donkey Kong Abilities

Aim Special Shot at hole

Donkey Kong Special Shot.jpg
Donkey Kong's Special Shot blasts away balls on impact, so the best place to target would be near the hole when everyone's about to putt in. Donkey Kong's drive is also more likely to reach the green/area near the hole as well.

Special Dash leaps and rolls

Donkey Kong's Special Dash has 3 hit boxes; when he leaps, when he lands, and as he's rolling. The timing may be a bit tricky and the roll has rigid steering, so it may take some practice to get used to.
