Oh yeah, K. Rool. Yeah, I think I'd prefer him over Dixie Kong, but I've heard that Rare still holds the rights to the Kremlings, which is why we haven't seen them in the new DKC games.
Either way, this is still a great roster in my mind. Yarn Yoshi is a questionable choice, and I'd prefer K. Rool over Dixie Kong if there weren't any copyright issues with him, but I would still be totally fine if this were the real roster.
