Lord of the Jungle (ジャングルの王者, King of the Jungle) is the 2nd event match of the 51 event matches in Super Smash Bros. Melee. As a giant Donkey Kong, the player must win a 2 stock match against a tiny CPU Donkey Kong on Kongo Jungle within 3 minutes. The player spawns on the lower left of the main platform, while the tiny Donkey Kong spawns above an elevated platform. The size disparity can make the event more difficult than expected, as the tiny Donkey Kong can easily avoid attacks and use the player's large hurtbox as an advantage. In addition, the player is handicapped on both knockback given and received, with the CPU receiving a defense buff of their own. The player uses Donkey Kong's default costume, while the tiny Donkey Kong uses the red costume. The tiny Donkey Kong is level 7.


  • Lord of the Jungle is the only event match that takes place on the Kongo Jungle stage.
