Availability Starter

Lord of the Jungle is the 2nd event match of the 51 event matches in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

The player controls a giant Donkey Kong, who must win a 3-minute, 2 stock match against a tiny CPU Donkey Kong on the Kongo Jungle stage. It is the only event match to take place on the Kongo Jungle stage. The tiny CPU Donkey Kong's artificial intelligence is set at Level 7.

When the match starts, the giant Donkey Kong will spawn 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 match more difficult than expected, as the tiny Donkey Kong can easily avoid attacks and use the giant Donkey Kong's large hurtbox as an advantage. In addition, the giant Donkey Kong is handicapped on both knockback given and received, with the CPU receiving a defense buff of their own. The tiny Donkey Kong uses the red costume, likely because the giant Donkey Kong uses his default costume.
