* FollowTheLeader: As a [[WackyRacing Kart Racer]], this game follows ''VideoGame/MarioKart'', right down to having eight racers per race and pickups on the track. Unlike ''VideoGame/MarioKart64'', which excluded the secondary pickup that increased top speed (coins) in the jump to 3D, ''Diddy Kong Racing'' has bananas that can be collected during a race and serve a similar purpose.

* FinalBoss: Wizpig himself is the last main race on the island after beating the other bosses and assembling the Wizpig Amulet, and also the last race in his own world, Future Fun Land, after the player obtains all 47 balloons and assembles the T.T. Amulet.

* {{Jerkass}}: Bubbler may not be evil, but he's certainly enough of a jerk to mock you if you lose to him - more so than even Smokey, who taunts you with an EvilLaugh after yelling "BAD LUCK!".

Bubbler may not be evil, but he's certainly enough of a jerk to mock you if you lose to him - more so than even Smokey, who taunts you with an EvilLaugh after yelling "BAD LUCK!".LUCK!".
** This also applies to Wizpig, who mocks the player's racer before both of his races, plays a sore loser after being beat the first time, and then crashes a celebration party before he leaves.


Added DiffLines:

* RecurringBoss: All 5 of the bosses in the game have to be raced twice as the game proceeds. The rematches against the island bosses (Tricky, Bluey, Bubbler, and Smoky) are simply harder versions of their first races, but the second race with Wizpig in Future Fun Land to close the game is entirely different from Race 1 on the island.

* {{Jerkass}}: Bubbler may not be evil, but he's certainly enough of a jerk to mock you if you lose to him–moreso than even Smokey, who taunts you with an EvilLaugh after yelling "BAD LUCK!".

Added DiffLines:

* BitingTheHandHumor: The official strategy guide includes a disparaging reference to the bananas of distributor Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s own ''VideoGame/MarioKart64''.

Added DiffLines:

* WilyWalrus: Downplayed with Bluey the Walrus. Despite being one of the bosses that the heroes must race, and despite his MalevolentMugshot appearing on his racetrack, he doesn't really do or say anything particularly villainous, and comes across as quite AffablyEvil.

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Nintendo Power's official strategy guide includes one to ''VideoGame/MarioKart64'':
-->''Forget everything you've ever learned about bananas from certain other racing adventures.''
