Hyper Rocketbarrel (ハイパーバレルジェット, Hyper Barrel Jet) is Diddy Kong's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It replaces his old Final Smash, Rocketbarrel Barrage.


When used, Diddy activates a silver variation of his Rocketbarrel Pack and dashes across the screen in multiple directions, dealing damage to whoever he hits. After a while, he will trap the opponent that has taken the most damage, and unleash one final hit that launches the targeted opponent, he will also hit nearby opponents as well. After this last attack, he descends back to his original position with his Rocketbarrel Pack, which explodes once he deactivates it before he touches the ground. The explosion can damage nearby opponents. In the event that two fighters have accumulated the same damage, the target will be whoever took damage first.

Instructional quote[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Move List DiddyKongHeadSSBU.png Diddy Kong multiplies himself and flies around the stage. He sometimes targets an opponent and charges at them. At the end of the attack, Diddy Kong charges at the opponent he damaged the most to launch them.

Much like his up special and previous Final Smash, this attack takes inspiration from the rocketbarrel jetpack power-up from Donkey Kong 64, where Diddy could use the jetpack to fly around in midair.



  • Sometimes, if Diddy Kong’s final smash is used while he is close or next to an opponent, he will trap that opponent, launch it up when he takes off, and give that opponent the most damage.
  • Diddy Kong flies across the stage from multiple directions simultaneously, similarly to Secret Ninja Attack and Darkness Illusion. This can be best seen by slowing down time during training.
    • Despite this, only one is represented on the blast zone radar.
