My favorite by far. Quick and moderately powered makes for a strong little ape.
Check this out if you use Diddy this is an "advanced" technique for you to try out.
1-Grab a bananna.
2-Hold shield and hit right or left to roll.
3-Right when you start to roll and you see your shield disappear, throw your bananna.
If done right, the throw action will cancel your shield roll and you will slide while throwing your bananna. It's called the glide toss. If you can do it fast enough it will look like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6oaCF5y9UQ. As seen here you can do a reverse glide toss as well!
