Davy Bones' artwork from DK: King of Swing.
|Leader||King K. Rool|
|Origin of Species||Skeletal eel
|Games||DK: King of Swing|
When engaging in battle, Davy Bones swims around a little bit until his health meter shows up and goes into one of his holes. His first attack is gnashing his teeth and then speeding up while trying to injure Donkey (Diddy in Diddy Mode). If either one isn't careful, they end up in injury. When he swims around for a while, he turns blue and becomes inactive. During this phase, Donkey or Diddy has a small amount of time to grab hold of the stub of Davy Bones' tail and swing him around, knocking Davy Bones onto spikes until Davy Bones returns to its normal condition. A few more times with this repeated defeats Davy Bones and allows him to release the golden DK Medal.
- The character's name and its level name is a pun on Davy Jones and Davy Jones' Locker respectively.
- Bones bears resemblance to Bone Dragon, an enemy in Yoshi's Story.
- The Dragon Kremling from DK: Jungle Climber is similar in behavior and appearance to Davy Bones except for the fact that the Dragon Kremling has skin and is not undead.
