Simian Spring (Leapus Largium) is a special move used by Diddy Kong in the game Donkey Kong 64. Diddy can learn this move at Frantic Factory after buying a potion from Cranky Kong.


To use Simian Spring, the player must find a pad with Diddy's face on it and press and hold the N64 Z button to have Diddy leap into the air off of his tail. With this move, Diddy is able to get up to high places that not even his backflip can get up on.


  • The Simian Spring may be a reference to the Shock Jump ability from the Banjo-Kazooie series.
