Suggested by Super Dark Shadow. DK is a powerhouse who has always been known as one of the stronger Mario characters. I can’t really argue that to be honest since his physical power is actually pretty scary. That being said, I definitely think Knuckles could take him on. Knuckles is strong as well and in his most powerful forms he is also quite fast. Knuckles would have DK down in a few hits guaranteed. This Kong just isn’t strong enough to stop him. Knuckles wins.
