Unlocking characters hint:
Generally, when you’re unlocking characters by playing a “cup” challenge, you can tell the type of character you will unlock. If you play as a “Kong” character (like Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong), you will unlock a similar character, while if you play as a Kremling (like Kritter or Kip), you will unlock a Kremling-like character.
