—King K. Rool

King K. Rool is a character originating from Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo and is one of the most requested characters on the GameFAQs Super Smash Bros. for Wii U board. He's also the most popular choice for a Donkey Kong rep in general, with Dixie Kong in 2nd place. Post release, he's the most wanted newcomer.on the board.

He's also the most popular choice for a DLC newcomer in Japan, which would be cool, but Pichu is more popular than he is. Pichu.

His name has officially been trademarked for the first time (see Nintendo's eShop page for DK64, then see it for the later released Jungle Climber)! Is he konfirmed? Only time will tell.

July 29, 2015, a King K. Rool Mii Fighter costume was confirmed for the upcoming update. Press F to pay respects. 

A few fans had hope that this meant nothing. Not quite Ridley-level (that was more the Wolf group), though, but still. Turns out it meant that we're not getting him. Maybe next time?

  • K. Rool's fanbase is so infamously vocal that some of them have transcended Smash and hate on the Donkey Kong Country Returns games for not including him. Granted, he was a regular in the original games, the villains of the two recent ones are both based on him, and his last appearance was in a Mario spinoff title, so it's not exactly a crazy thought that Donkey Kong fans would want the original villain to return.
