    Taj is the player's guide and local island genie of the racing game, Diddy Kong Racing.

    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    When Wizpig arrived on Timber's Island, the first thing he did was kick Taj off of his mountain. As Wizpig soon learns, it takes a lot more to keep a genie elephant down. Upon Timber's formation of the resistance movement, Taj returns to the scene, providing the racing animals with tips, options, and vehicle-changing services.

    In Diddy Kong Racing DS, Taj owns a tent where many of the game's new features can be accessed. Another notable element about the DS remake is that Taj is now playable. If a player-controlled Taj talks to the NPC-Taj, the latter will exclaim "Am I going crazy?!" How both exist at the same time remains a mystery, but it's best not to question it.

    Donkey Kong Racing

    Taj was a planned playable character in the canceled GameCube game Donkey Kong Racing. In the teaser trailer shown at E3 2001, Taj was shown riding a Rambi-esque rhino and a Zinger.
