Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (abbreviated to DKC2) (スーパードンキーコング2 ディクシー&ディディー) is a 1995 adventure platform game developed for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (otherwise known as the "SNES") produced by Rareware and published by Nintendo - with Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong starring as the main characters of the game. Donkey Kong Country 2 was first released on November 20, 1995 in North America. Donkey Kong Country 2 is a sequel to the original Donkey Kong Country (1994) which was later followed by Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! (1996). Donkey Kong Country 2 was later also released on the Game Boy Advance in 2004 and was until recently available for download on the Wii's Virtual Console, having become one of the most popular games of its age.

The game begins soon after Donkey Kong has been kidnapped by the prime antagonist Kaptain K. Rool, leaving Diddy and his girlfriend Dixie to rescue him. Together, the two travel to various and distinct parts of Crocodile Isle where the game is set on which there are varying worlds totaling in eight unique environments. Improved over its predecessor, Donkey Kong Country 2 was praised for having excellent graphics, plot and characterization and as a result Donkey Kong Country 2 received much critical and commercial praise. Selling millions of copies worldwide on the SNES, it was the second best selling game of 1995 and the sixth best-selling game on the platform overall.

The first few levels take place on K. Rool's pirate ship, called Gangplank Galleon. The ship appears as a starter stage in Super Smash Flash 2.
