The character that most people seem to prefer in Diddy Kong racing is Tiptup. He is so popular that fans wrote in pleading for Tiptup to get a special place in a Rareware game, and he did. It may only be a short part but Tiptup is hidden inside a big turtle on Bubblegloop Swamp in the famous Banjo-Kazooie. He is seen with his small choir trying to teach Banjo and Kazooie some tunes to get a well earned jiggy. In DKR, Tiptup has the same statistics as Pipsy apart from a little less handling and a little more weight. Try him before any of the other characters, he's cool.
