If you are a true King Dedede main, this matchup should feel just barely possible. Diddy Kong is up there with Bayonetta, Sonic, ZSS, and maybe Mega Man as potentially being a hard counter to King Dedede in this game. Diddy Kong has a significant speed advantage, has a much more generous and cruel combo game based on King Dedede's atrocious attributes (which also gives him better kill confirms), has a swift recovery that can make it difficult for King Dedede to land a gimp, and both Peanuts and Banana Peels are strong enough to block Gordos. While King Dedede has arguably a more immediately potent punish game, Diddy Kong's punishes are more reliable, again owing to the fact that a character of his archetype is better at comboing against heavyweights.
