Rare has put together a fabulous list of cheats in Diddy Kong Racing.
You can enter the following "Magic Codes" by going to the Options
screen and choosing Magic Codes. All of the individual cheats can be
turned on or off once entered. However, the codes don't seem to save.
So you'll have to re-enter any you want to use each time you turn on
Enter the code BLABBERMOUTH and then when you press the Z button
(assuming you don't have a weapon), the horn will play a random
voice sample from your character instead of the regular horn.

Enter the code JOINTVENTURE and now two players can play the
Adventure Mode, making it easier to complete the challenges.

Bananas Reduce Speed:
Enter the code BOGUSBANANAS and if you pick up bananas, your overall

Enter the code NO#DCDC00STUFF, which makes picking up bananas a
worthless activity since they won't do anything.

Activate "Drumstick" Character
Once you get all of the trophies and amulets, go to the Central
Area. The Central Area is the place from which all other zones are
accessed. In this area, you should notice a bunch of little frogs
hopping around near the edge of the water. Take your vehicle and
drive over to them. Look at them carefully. One of them will have
rooster head feathers. If you carefully touch that frog, Drumstick
will pop out! Apparently he had been turned into a frog by Wizpig.
Speed Boost Trick
After the announcer says "Get Ready" and the words start to disappear,
press and hold the A button. If done correctly, you will get a turbo
boost. This helps dramatically in your racing success!
NOTE: Any time you go over a speed marker (AKA "zip") or use a rocket
boost from a balloon, make sure you do not use the gas or your boost
will be cut short.
Take off Into Space
To get to Space World, which is the hidden fifth world in the game,
you must get all trophies and all amulets. Then go to the sign by the
lighthouse and honk at it. The lighthouse will transform into a rocket
and take you into space.
