Rare created Diddy Kong, if I remember correctly the story is the original DK is now Cranky Kong and DK Jr. grew up to the regular DK
but all of the major characters in the Donkey Kong series (besides DK) were created by Rare
I remember hearing this stuff before Brawl was released by people claiming the Diddy could not be in because Rare owns him
"Fire has other worldly powers" -Lawdog1521
This is just about the gist of what I can find. Whether he is still property of Rare or not is a different search. Is there any credits for Brawl available that might shed a little light to this scenario? Like music in movies, it mentions who wrote it, who performed it, who owns it and who has the rights.Donkey Kong Jr. was originally meant to be Donkey Kong's sidekick in Donkey Kong Country, but Nintendo felt that Rare's redesign was too different and mandated them to either revert to Donkey Kong Jr.'s original appearance or change the name of the character. Rare felt that the design fit Donkey Kong Country's new aesthetic more, leading to Diddy becoming a separate character.

MY DEBUT "NO GUIDANCE" NOW AVAILABLE
I could of swore back when DKCR was announced without Kremlings, that was the reason why. I should remember its the Internet claiming this information, so bags of salt around. As for the Kremling, I wouldn't mind, more representation for the other universes that actually deserve it. (Star Fox was the biggest lulz, 3 characters with the same move sets.)
I do really want Geno.

There are a couple characters that would be really cool from SMRPG besides Geno. I'd love to play as Mallow, Booster, Croco, Boshi and maybe even Johnathon Jones if I can be greedy. The odds of Geno happening is small, as well as the rest even seeing a glimmer of hope being a false dream.
Not sure if it's been brought up yet but a Goron or Zora would be cool.

Did any of you watch "Drawn Together"?
