Jungle Hijinx in Super Smash Flash 2.
|Appearance||Super Smash Flash 2|
|Home stage for||Donkey Kong|
Jungle Hijinx (バナナジャングル) is a starter stage in Super Smash Flash 2 hailing from the game Donkey Kong Country. It currently is the home stage to Donkey Kong. It is also an original stage, meaning it does not appear in any of the official Super Smash Bros. games, though a similarly named stage appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
The stage is very simplistic on its design. It contains one main platform with a small rocky-plateau on the left and a pass-through hill in the right, which is connected by a small slope. A Barrel Cannon is located on the left side of the stage. Players can hop into the barrel and press a button to shoot the character out of the barrel. If they don't command any action, the barrel will simply shoot by itself. It should be noted that only one player can be inside the barrel. Other players that attempt to get inside while it is occupied will simply go through it. The background includes Donkey Kong's treehouse that can be seen behind some palm trees, the crate of the Animal Buddy Rambi that can be seen behind another group of palm trees, and the silhouettes of some Mini-Neckies can be seen flying in the sunset.
- The main music track is titled DK Swing Island (or called Jungle Hijinx) from Donkey Kong Country Returns.
- The alternate music track is an original remix of Bramble Blast (sometimes called Stickerbush Symphony) from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Also, there's another music called Mining Melancholy may heard it during the music. Arranged by Ema 194 Alvarado.
This stage is currently banned in tournament play. The position underneath the floating platform is a powerful camping spot, while the slope in the center of the stage has a tendency to create buggy collision interactions. While these faults are not normally enough to ban this stage, the backroom have decided that the stage layout is too similar to Castle Siege, but more unbalanced, thus prompting its exclusion from the current stage list.
Jungle Hijinx is highly influenced by the Donkey Kong Country level of the same name. However, despite this the stage is actually based on the many jungle levels from Donkey Kong Country. This is because the level Jungle Hijinx is not set in a sunset, but instead a cloudy sky. The actual level that is set in a sunset is another jungle level known as Orang-Utan Gang. The Barrel Cannon is another example. It is not present in Jungle Hijinx, but in subsequent levels; not just in jungle levels. The rest of the background, with one exception (Mini-Neckies appeared in other levels) originally appeared in the Jungle Hijinx level. DK's treehouse was the place where the player started the quest while the Rambi's crate could be opened to ride the Animal Buddy.
