Timber the Tiger is the protagonist of Timber’s Island. He is a young tiger cub appearing in Diddy Kong Racing and its remake as a playable character. He appears to be from London, England, talking in an English accent and wearing a blue baseball cap with a Rare logo in the original, then a Nintendo logo, due to Rare's move to Microsoft. He is apparently a long-time best friend of Diddy Kong. He appears to use green vehicles.
As the story of the game goes, Timber was apparently left in charge of Timber's Island when his parents were going on vacation. Unfortunately disaster struck Timber and his family's island when an evil, intergalactic pig named Wizpig invaded the island. As Wizpig took over the island, Timber managed to send letters to his various friends, requesting their assistance in helping him defeat Wizpig. With the aid of his friends, managed to defeat Wizpig and reclaim ownership of his island after winning a challenge to race the island.
