Game(s) Donkey Kong Country 3

Belcha is the first boss in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, found in Lake Orangatanga. Belcha is a very odd boss, as he is a giant, apparently living Wooden Barrel, with eyes and a mouth. His large mouth plays a role in his attack pattern.

Belcha's Barn

Belcha is fought at the end of Lake Orangatanga, his level called Belcha's Barn. Kongs will enter the battle, which is a mill area, and be greeted by Belcha burping out a Wooden Barrel at them. By jumping on the barrel, a yellow Knik-Knak will come out. The Kongs have to jump on the Knik-Knak once to get it on its back. It can then be used as a projectile. Then, the Kongs must time the throw into Belcha's mouth when it's open and Belcha will do a large belch, pushing him back. The stage itself has two end points, the right side being a pit, the left side being another pit. The right side is where Belcha must be forced to, and be trapped in order to be defeated.

Belcha will belch when you toss projectiles into his mouth.



  • A Banana Bird Cave named "Belcha's Burrow" appears later in-game, far beyond Lake Orangatanga.
  • Belcha is one of the 2 Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! bosses to not reappear in Donkey Kong Land III along with Squirt.
  • Belcha has been reported as the cause of many children's nightmares, much like Squirt from later in the game.
  • This boss level's stage's background was originally a factory one in the SNES version of the game despite taking place inside a mill. This was corrected in the GBA remake. The factory background in the original SNES version might have been intended to refer to the stage's dark nature for being a boss battle.
