Introduction

Welcome to ResidentEvil4DS' walkthrough for Donkey Kong Country Returns! Wow, I can't believe how long it's been! Fourteen years ago the third installment of the Donkey Kong Country series was released for the Super Nintendo and now today we're seeing a fourth game for the Nintendo Wii. This is also exciting for me as this is my first full Walkthrough as well as my first formatted guide.

Anyway, enough small talk. Onto the guide!

Getting Started

Before we start the walkthrough there's just a few things I need to go over. This section can be skipped if you'd like but if you need to clarify some things about characters, controls, etc. stick around and take a look.

Understanding the Guide

So before we get into the bulk of the guide, I thought I'd give an explanation of a few things:

Level System

I decided to split the levels using boxes and then providing a little information on each level.

Level Name (1)

Puzzle Pieces: ??? (2)

Difficulty: * (3)

  • Other information (4)

1. The level name is displayed in bold. All level names are listed and can be searched using CTRL + F.

2. The number of puzzle pieces in each level. This gives you an idea of how much item searching will be done as well as a checklist for yourself.

3. The difficulty of the level rated using my own experience throughout the game. Levels are rated with one star being very easy and five stars for very hard.

4. Sometimes levels require items or extra information in order to play them. The information will be clearly displayed here.

Terms to Know

I noticed myself that I use slang for certain items/moves/etc. throughout the game. If you ever get confused about something, refer back to here. If I missed a word that may be considered slang, I can add it in here to give you a better understanding.

Platform: When I use this term, I'm referring to any sort of ground that you can use to progress further in the game. Platforms can be found in almost any shape or size. You could also consider this the same as 'ground', just that I found platform to be more universal.

Plank: Any platforms that float in the air. Basically single pieces of metal, wood, etc. that are used to travel.

Pillar: Found on the ground. Very small platforms that can usually be ground-pounded for more than one reason. A good example are the screaming pillar and the ship pegs.

Pound: Any time I refer to pounding a treasure chest or an enemy, I'm refering to the ground-pound. I tend to use this term to save time when explaning boss battles or searching for puzzle pieces.

DK Platform: Large circular platforms on the ground. It's not always clear, but they distinctly say 'DK' on them. Usually ground-pounding these reveals an area of the map.

Checkpoint: The pigs with the checkmark stand found throughout different levels. Allows you to continue from that point if you were to lose a life.

Coin: Anytime I say coin, I'm referring to banana coins. It's just much easier since they're the only type of coins that you will have to deal with in Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Introduction

So the story begins! We are first introduced to the weird tikki type enemies that hypnotize all of the animals in the jungle into stealing the bananas. When Diddy appears he realizes the bananas are gone and freaks out obviously. Soon after, the tikki enemy tries to hypnotize Donkey Kong and fails. So I'm guessing our heroes are immune to the spell? Must be. Anyway, after a few seconds of Donkey Kong going wtf you are given an outer view of his house. Move your Wii Mote and Nunchuck up and down together to simulate Donkey Kong and Diddy beating up the enemy. If you chose to use the horizontal position of the Wii mote, you will be asked to wag the Wii Mote.

The enemy will fly out of the house and you are thrown into your first introduction level!

What a familiar name! Now let's start collecting the items. First, go to the left into the cave in order to find the first [PUZZLE PIECE].

Jump across the trees going left until you find the ragweed flower sitting on the final tree. Blow the flower in order to find the second [PUZZLE PIECE]. Go right until you find two columns that fall down towards you. Let them fall and then smash the double one to find the third [PUZZLE PIECE]. Run across the bridge to the end where you will find three flowers. The large middle one will reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE] if you pound the ground. Soon after following the path right you will find two frog statues. Keep high jumping on the flower to collect all the bananas that fly out of the mouths of the statues. After collecting them all you will find a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Once you reach the [O LETTER], roll off the platform and jump as soon as you collect the letter in order to make it safely on the other side. A checkpoint and barrel are also found here. You will soon reach a DK platform. Pound it in order to reveal a part of the level behind it. Use the barrel to get to the background of the level. Hover to the left using Diddy and blow the ragweed to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Hover back and walk toward the right to collect the [N LETTER]. Use the barrel in the middle to get back to the foreground and then walk to the right to find a stone monkey platform. Pound the middle to be dropped into a bonus level. Collecting all of the bananas, coins and the balloon will get you another [PUZZLE PIECE]. Keep walking to the right over the bridge until you reach a little bump in the road. Use the bump to jump to the platform to the left. Jump across the platforms going left in order to get a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Now do the same thing going right and jump off the platform to reach the [G LETTER] completing KONG. Walk right until you reach the end level barrel. Walk past it to the right to reveal the final [PUZZLE PIECE]. Jump on the end level barrel to complete the level.

Keep going right and then cling to the grass moving upward. Once you start traveling upward you will find a lone flower to the right. Jump onto that platform to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Keep moving up until you reach an area with a few wheels and spikes below them. Jump on the wheel above you and then the one to the right. Finally, jump onto the wall and move down to reach the [N LETTER]. Use the wall to move back up. Keep moving upward until you reach a wheel and a flower. Go to the right past the flower and toward the wall to uncover the final [PUZZLE PIECE]. Keep moving upward and across platforms until you get to an open area with many flowers.

Keep moving right using the automatic barrel to take you to a new area. Keep going right collecting the [O LETTER] by jumping off one of the two given pillars. Once you get to the checkpoint, there will be a part of the ground that can be pounded to reveal Rambi Rhino. Backtrack to an area with spikes.

Canopy Cannons

Puzzle Pieces: 5

Keep going right until you reach a barrel. Jump in and fire toward the next few barrels collecting the [LETTER K] on the way. Once you are finally out of the barrels you will land on a parrot and next to a flower. Ground pound the flower to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Go toward the right and jump in the barrel. Fire toward the sky to collect the [LETTER O] and then into the next barrel. In the next barrel, fire toward the ground to be sent through a series of automatic barrels also collecting a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Keep going right until you reach a platform that looks like it can be ground pounded. Do so and you will fall into a bonus stage. Collect all the bananas and coins to get a [PUZZLE PIECE]. After finishing this backtrack to the left of the platform with the parrot above you. Pound ground the flower here to get a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Start moving right again past the checkpoint into a barrel.

Crazy Cart

Puzzle Pieces: 5

Awesome! The old mine kart level. First go left to collect the [PUZZLE PIECE] behind you. Start going right finally reaching a DK platform. Ground pound the platform to reveal a series of plaforms. Move upward to the left to uncover a bonus stage. Collect the bananas, coins and red balloon to get a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Once you get back to the platforms, go right into the mine. Ground pound the wooden platform to send you downward eventually reaching a barrel. Get in the barrel to be fired into a mine cart. Now this is where the fun begins! Follow the track jumping over the two enemies. Jump on the third enemy to be boosted to the [LETTER K]. Follow the track until you see another track above you. Defeat the enemy without jumping onto the track above you. Continue along until you collect the [PUZZLE PIECE] and then quickly jump off onto the track above you. Soon after, the track will bend downward. Jump off at the peak of the track into the [LETTER O]. Soon you will find a flying banana. Do not jump trying to collect it as the area overhead has a spiked ceiling. Right at the end of the spiked ceiling, be sure to jump into the [PUZZLE PIECE] and then onto the next part of the track. Soon, the track will wind toward the screen, making the kart in very close view. Carefully jump when you see the [PUZZLE PIECE] as it will pass by on the track very suddenly. Right before it, there will be a banana coin so you'll have an idea when it's coming. Soon after, you will reach the checkpoint. Quickly jump over the fire tikki as it will destroy your kart in one go. You will once again be sent into an area with a spiked ceiling. Once again be careful. After exiting the area, continue to stay on the same track. Last minute, jump off to collect the [LETTER N] and safely make it onto the track above. Avoid the three fire tikki's at the next section as well as a few enemies. You'll then find another three fire tikkis. The first two you will travel under while the third you will have to jump over. The track will start to break into many small pieces. Keep jumping across until you're back on a linear track. Once again, stay on until the last minute to collect the [LETTER G]. The cart will fly off the tracks and onto a road winding downward. The track will finally finish and the kart will fly into the air. If you jump right when the cart flies off the tracks, the cart will land onto a new track. Follow the broken down track where the mine kart will finally crash landing you in front of the end level barrel. Jump into it to complete the level.

Mugly's Mound

Difficulty: *

Walk forward collecting the DK barrel. Walk toward the right and a cutscene will follow...

Boss # 1: Mugly

Difficulty: *

Health: 10 hits

Mugly is a...I'm not really sure WHAT it is. It looks ugly and definitely wants to kill you. Looks like our heroes need to give it a good beating!

Mugly will have a large horn on it's back to make it invulnerable to jump attacks. Luckily the horn fades when he's charging at you. Wait for Mugly to start charging and then jump on him. Don't wait for him to stop. Just go in for the hit as soon as the charge starts. Mugly will also be vulnerable when he's hopping around the area. This is another good chance to hit him. After three hits he'll turn orange. He's now a little bit faster but it's no big deal. Two more hits and he'll turn red. Now he's really angry. Mugly will once again be a bit faster and will have a significantly higher jump. No problem. Just hit him when he's coming down. After two hits in his red form you'll have a change to make him dizzy. Get him to hit into a wall and he'll fall to the floor. After four hits in the red form, Mugly will be defeated.

  • Sometimes Mugly will drop hearts when you hit him.

Attacks

Charge: Mugly will rush towards you in attempts to mow you down. Damages for one heart.

Jump: Mugly will jump around the arena crushing you if you are too close. Damages for one heart.

Eat: Mugly will attempt to eat you. Damagers for one hit.

Right after a short scene of you smacking Mugly silly, you will have control of your character again. Walk toward the center and shake your Wii Mote/Nunchuck like crazy to get as many hits as you can on that damn tikki!

And so, that ends world one! Onto the beach!

Poppin' Planks

Puzzle Pieces: 5

Difficulty: **

Time to start a new world! Let's start by going right avoiding the crabs until you reach a small wooden pillar. Pound it down to reveal another pillar. Jump on the newly discovered pillar and then jump to the high up platform to the left. Jump on the platform to the left of it and then jump in the air to the left collecting the [PUZZLE PIECE]. Starting going right once again collecting the DK barrel on the way. Jump over the spikes to reach a stone platform. Jump on the taller stone platform to the right and then onto the higher wooden platform to the left to the the [LETTER K]. Jump from the wooden platform to the right platform to collect two banana coins. Jump down and ground pound the treasure chest to reveal a red balloon. Go right until you reach another wooden pillar. Pound it down to reveal a barrel. Jump in to go to a bonus level. Defeat the two crab enemies to get a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Leave using the barrel on the top platform. Move right to reach a second wooden pillar. Ground pound it and then pound the treasure chest to reveal another [PUZZLE PIECE]. Go right until you reach yet another pillar. Pound it to reveal a new pillar. Use it to jump over the ledge. Pound the DK Platform to reveal a whale. Move to the right collecting bananas the whale spits out. Keep going right until you reach a high wooden plank. Jump when the dock rises to reach the plank and then jump across the planks to the right to eventually reach a solid platform on the ground. Jump across the to the right plank and defeat the crab. Jump to the right and when the left plank is high enough, jump back and then into the air to the left to reach the [LETTER O]. Start going right again using the wooden planks. You will reach a plank with eight barrels under it (you'll know when you see it). Pound it to make it fall into the water. You will be gently drifted toward solid ground. Pass the checkpoint and pound the treasure chest to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Soon after you will reach a cannon. Pound the cannon to reveal a ship. Pass the ship and jump on the platform to the right. Go back left and into the ship to reveal a bonus level. Collect the bananas and coins to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Once again start moving right. Move across the ship pieces collecting the [LETTER N] when the ship piece is high enough. Move across the wooden dock making sure you don't land when the spikes are exposed. Jump onto the plank when the dock moves up. Jump across the planks at the right time (better to wait and see the nature of the moving planks once or twice before jumping) until you reach smaller planks. Jump when the planks are close enough and the sharks are already falling back down. One of the planks will have the [LETTER G]. Finally jump into the end level barrel.

Sloppy Sands

Puzzle Pieces: 7

Difficulty: *

Start moving right pounding the wooden pillar to reveal another to the right. Jump onto the higher platform and grab the DK barrel. Carry it back to the beginning of the level and use it to break the wooden target revealing the first [PUZZLE PIECE]. Keep moving right until you reach the squid cannon. Jump over it and then pound the triple wooden pillar to reveal another to the right. Jump on it and then onto the wooden platform above to get another [PUZZLE PIECE]. Jump down and pound the cannon to drop a treasure chest with four banana coins. Jump over the next squid cannon to reach a flower. Blow the flower revealing another [PUZZLE PIECE]. Go back to the left and use the squids to jump over the higher squid cannon to the right. You will reach a double squid cannon. Use the squids to jump over the two squid cannons. Pound the treasure chest to reveal a red balloon. Jump over the electric squid cannon moving down a hill to the right. Keep moving right to reach a triple wooden pillar. Pound it to reveal another one to the right. Use it to jump over the double squid cannon. Move down the hill and toward the checkpoint. Jump over the squids until you reach the second wooden create. Pound it to reveal a treasure chest. Pound it again to reveal a blast barrel to take you to the background. Roll into the large pillar to drop the [LETTER K]. Pound the treasure chest to the left to reveal another barrel taking you back to the foreground. Start going right again jumping over the squid cannon where you will reach a wooden dock. Keep going right and then drop below the dock. Pound the cannon and it will break the dock creating lower platforms. Jump across the platforms to the left until you reach the [PUZZLE PIECE]. Start going right again until you see the double squid cannon. Quickly dash toward the [LETTER O] and then back to the left. Use the squid to jump above to the wooden platform and then jump over the electric squid cannon. Use the regular squid in order to jump toward the [LETTER N]. Once you fall back to the ground, roll to the left into the wall revealing a bonus level. Collect the bananas and coins to get a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Move past the checkpoint and pound the DK platform to make the tower in the background rise as well as reveal a blast barrel in the foreground. Use the barrel to be sent into the tower. Just keep climbing up until you reach a grassy ceiling. Cling to it and then jump to the right clinging on the grass there. Travel down the grass to reach the [LETTER G] and then start traveling upward once again. Once you get to the wheel, move toward the right near the barrels revealing a hidden [PUZZLE PIECE]. You will eventually reach a barrel at the top that will fire you to the top of the tower. Jump in the end level barrel.

Peaceful Pier

Puzzle Pieces: 5

Difficulty: *

Start the level moving a little right until you reach the tall willows. Blow on them to reveal the first [PUZZLE PIECE]. Move to the broken dock and follow the explanation to blow on the fire tikki. Quickly jump on it to defeat it and then move into the barrel to the left. Fire into the next barrel to be sent into a barrel rocket. Keep tapping the button mentioned to blast the barrel off. Keep using the same button to control the height of the rocket. Collect the bananas giving yourself some practice with the rocket. You will reach a straight line of bananas. Effectively use the throttle button to stay in a straight line collecting all the bananas and revealing a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Keep moving forward following the up and and down path of the bananas to collect the [LETTER K]. Keep following the banana paths avoiding the sharks below. You will eventually reach the [LETTER O] and move right into it if you were following the banana path. Eventually a pirate ship will start to attack. My strategy here was to hold the throttle button so the rocket would stay at the very top of the level without gaining any damage. The banana path will soon return. Use it to travel right into the [LETTER N]. Right after this, the ship will fire a string of cannonballs at you. Stay low and then throttle up the the end of the string of fire to collect the [PUZZLE PIECE]. The ship will do the same again but this time the string of fire will come from the bottom. Keep throttling up and then fall to the bottom of the string of fire to collect another [PUZZLE PIECE]. The third time around, the ship will fire five times. Your best bet is to try my over-throttle strategy and stay at the top of the screen away from fire. You can also travel right through the cannon fire as well. Soon after, the ship will bring a large cannon out and a target will appear on the screen. Use my full-throttle strategy and then when the target starts flashing rapidly, let go of the throttle a bit to land you safely in the middle of the air making the anchor miss. The ship will soon miss and you are given a trail of bananas toward the bottom of the screen. Follow the path to collect the [LETTER G]. The rocket will finally break and you will land next to the end level barrel. Walk past it and pound the ground the reveal a bonus level. Collect the bananas, coins and red balloon to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Once you are finished, enter the end level barrel. What a fun level!

Cannon Cluster

Puzzle Pieces: 7

Difficulty: **

Start the level by moving right until you reach a wooden pillar. Pound it down to reveal another one to the right. Pound the newly revealed pillar to bring the first one back up with a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Start moving right again until you see a pirate ship in the background. At this point, your best bet is to roll past all the cannon fire when you have both Donkey Kong and Diddy. Otherwise, you might have to just try your best to avoid the cannon fire making it across to the right. You will reach a treasure chest with a banana coin. Jump over the jelly fish just like you would a shark and then blow the flower to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. You will soon reach the [LETTER K]. Low jump onto the letter when the tikki is hovering over it. Then press the jump button as you hit the tikki to high jump to the platform above. You will reach another dock with cannon fire coming your way. Do you best to avoid the fire and then fall off the dock onto the ground. You will be right in front of a wooden pillar. Pound it to reveal another on the dock. Use the pillar on the dock to jump off to the right collecting another [PUZZLE PIECE]. Move past the treasure chest and pound the wooden pillar right next to it to reveal another next to the windmill on the dock. Stand on the new pillar and blow the windmill to raise the ground to the left. Jump on the raised ground and into the barrel. Collect the bananas, coins and red balloon to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Jump over the jellyfish to the right and quickly pound the crate on the ground to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Quickly jump back to the wooden platform to the left before you are hit by cannon fire. When you are given a clear shot at making it across, go for it and then stop underneath the wooden platform so you are shielded from the cannon fire. Jump on the stone pillar to the right and then onto the wooden platform to the left to collect the [LETTER O]. Quickly jump back down below the wooden platform. Quickly run toward the right and down to the new wooden section near the checkpoint. Run past the checkpoint and grab the barrel. Run back to the left and break the wooden target. Collect the [PUZZLE PIECE]. Start going right again jumping on the ship pieces. You will eventually reach a small wooden crate on one of the ship pieces. Use it to jump to the [LETTER N]. Keep moving forward until you reach the next section of cannon fire. You are going to have to use everything you've learned in this level to avoid getting hurt. Quickly avoid the cannon fire each time in order to get onto the wooden crate. Use the crate to jump to the left collecting the [LETTER G]. Once the cannon finishes hitting the the crates to the right, you must pound the crates as fast as you can and then immediately roll to the right. It is possible to do this all without getting hurt. Run under the ship and into a new area. Grab the barrel and carry it past the crabs. You are now going to have to avoid all the cannon fire here in order to protect the barrel you are carrying. As soon as you are clear in front of you, move to the right and keep doing so until you reach the other side. Use the barrel to break the wooden target. Walk in to reveal a bonus level. Collect the banana bunches, flying bananas and coins to reveal a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Jump over the ship you went into and into the end level barrel.

Stormy Shore

Puzzle Pieces: 5

Start going right into the cave. Jump over the jellyfish and you will eventually reach a grassy wall. Climb upward crossing over to the left side of the wall to collect the [LETTER K]. Keep climbing on the left collecting a [PUZZLE PIECE] at the top and then three banana coins going down on the other side. Go back to the right and this time jump to the right side of the stage.

Tidal Terror

Difficulty: **

Start going right pounding the treasure chest for a [PUZZLE PIECE]. Now this is where the game gets tricky! Run toward the stone pillar and hide in front of it.

If you need some cover, you can pound the red button to reveal a few rocks along the way. You will eventually reach a cave. Use the grass on the ceiling to climb past the shark.

Boss # 2: Crab Pirates

Difficulty: *

Health: 12 hits (4 hits each)

Well isn't this great. Crabs have been bothering you throughout the beach. It's time to show them who's boss!

The yellow crab will come up first. Jump on him to make him put his claws up. Ground pound right next to him and he'll become dizzy as well as flip over. Jump on him and he'll burrow back underground.

Next, the blue crab will come out of the hole. This crab puts up it's claws at random times. This is actually helpful since you can just ground pound him to make him dizzy and flip over. Simply hit him when he's dizzy and he'll also burrow underground.

Lastly, the red crab will come out. Don't give him any time to try any tricks. Quickly jump on him when he doesn't have his claws in the air and ground pound him to make him dizzy and flip over. Jump on him and he'll burrow underground.

Now comes the fun part! The crabs will dig underneath each other to make a three layer crab. Use the platforms to the left and right of the arena to jump over them when they corner you. When they put their claws up, roll into them. All of them will become dizzy. Hit each of them and they will burrow underground.

Repeat everything once more and they will be defeated.

  • Once you hit all of them the first time around, they will drop a heart.

Attacks

Claws raised: The crabs will put their claws up in the air. Jumping on them will cause you to lose one heart.

Weapons/Walking: Walking into the crabs while their claws are down / they are holding a weapon will cause you to lose one heart.

Falling: Once you roll into the crabs when they stack on top of each other, they will fall to the ground. If they end up hitting you when falling you will be damaged for one heart.

A short scene will follow and the three tikki's will be exposed. Walk up to them and follow the shake prompt to get them a good smack!

And that ends the second world! Time to explore the Ruins!

Boss # 3: Giant Turkey

Difficulty: **

Health: 6 hits

DAMN that thing is huge! Well it's time to give it our all!

The first thing you need to watch out for is the turkey's swoop. Try ducking or using the crates to hide yourself from the attack. The turkey will throw three bombs at a time. Quickly pick them up and throw them back at the turkey. After hitting the turkey with the bombs twice, he'll start to drop a fire bomb which will send a stream of fire around the stage. After another hit, he'll start dropping a missile which will create a giant shockwave as well as break the crates used for cover. Just continue to throw the regular bombs at him. Eventually he'll drop a tikki bomb. This bomb will explode anytime you get near so stay away from it until it blows up. Around this time, the turkey will also drop a whole string of bombs. They all blow up pretty fast so I wouldn't bother throwing them back.

After a total of six hits, the turkey will fall to the floor. Not very strong at all. Just a lot of attacks.

  • Once you hit the turkey he will drop a heart randomly.

Attacks

Swoop: The giant turkey will attempt to swoop down and hurt you. Damages for one heart.

Bomb: The giant turkey will throw bombs at you (three at a time). If they blow up near you, damages for one heart.

Fire bomb: The giant turkey will throw this at random. When it explodes, a stream of fire will go both ways around the arena.

Giant missile: The giant turkey will drop a missle in the middle of the arena creating a giant shockwave also breaking the blocks around you. Damages for one heart.

Tikki Bomb: The giant turkey will drop a tikki with a bomb inside of it. Going close to it will trigger the bomb. Damages for one heart.

Bomb String: The giant turkey will drop a long string of bombs that explode relatively fast.

A short scene will follow and the gong tikki will fall out. Walk up to it and give it the beating it deserves!

And that ends the third world! Let's head into the cave!
