I suppose they had to change her look since she was essentially just Dixie No.2 beforehand.

Had Rare put Dixie in DK64 instead, I'm sure she'd have been able to shrink, too.

Tiny's new look is.... Disturbing. I can only imagine the conversations she has with her parents...

Tiny: "I can take steroids and not worry because I'm a monkey!"
Mr. Kong: "Tiny, even if you are a monkey, side effects still apply."
Tiny: "Oh. That explains why I barfed up blood. Thanks dad!"
Mr. Kong: "Tiny, I'm disowning you."

Good times.

I absolutely HATE Tiny's new look. She was my favorite character in Donkey Kong 64. She was named Tiny because she was small, cute, and innocent. Now, she's the opposite. I really wish Nintendo made this change, and not Rare themselves....

I hate her new look, mainly because I'm so used to how she looked in DK64. But even if I never played DK64, I probably would still hate her new look.

i only dont like it cause it makes no sense, if everyone had changed, or something, i might not be so against it

the fact that only tiny changed and everyone else didnt is what makes it bad to me
(although, if everyone changed i probably wouldnt like that either, as then all of them would be changed)

What they should have done is make her permanently tiny. Mini Monkey-sized.

Then she could be a golden marmoset or something. One of those rally tiny monkeys.

They should either go back to the old look or change her name to Slutty Kong.

But Chunky is muscular. He's large and in charge and lookin' for chickies. Whassup?

Chunky was my fav in DK64.
But Tiny looks a lot like a monkey hooker. When I saw the DKRDS comercial and saw her about two times taller with her arse sticking out, I about died.

lol^
(and rofl, monkey hooker)

yeah, i just saw here and was like What..The...****, try adding sex appeal much?

nasty!... its a monkey for Christ's sake!

(and with chunky in DK64, i loved it when you did his big punch when you slide down a hill, normally he goes 'Huur Agg!' but when you slide he's like "Huur... rrrrruuh"[try it if you haven't, its not easy to describe])

anyway, yeah, i was shocked, i went looking cause i had heard a few little things(like saying "why did you change tinys look?", or "tinys new look is cool, its nice when you see them grow up, take that mario!" and stuff, so i decided to look for her, and... well i found her

i was shocked, i think i was actually embarrassed, if my mum or dad had seen her i don't know what they would have thought of me! (monkey hooker comes close to a good description of her now)

yeah, it just feels wrong having her that way, they took away her innocence, and it made no sense to change her...

You'll be pleased to know that according to Rare's comments in Scribes, it was in fact Nintendo's decision. Likewise, all the new character redesigns are from Nintendo/PAON.
