Dumb Drum's artwork as seen in Donkey Kong Country.
|Residence||Kremkroc Industries, Inc.|
|Powers/Abilities||Fast dropping ability, can spawn enemies|
|Enemies||Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong
|Games||Donkey Kong Country
When the battle starts, Dumb Drum will drop down from the ceiling, and must be avoided. This battle is unique from other battles in that it actually contains regular enemies. In fact, Dumb Drum's attack pattern is to drop down very fast, spawn 2 of an enemy (see below) and repeat, with tougher enemies and more dropping down after each "round".
- It will spawn two Kritters first.
- Next, it'll drop two Slippas.
- Then, two Klaptraps.
- After, Klumps.
- The last consists of two Armies.
After it disposes the last of the minions, Dumb Drum will be defeated and will explode. This makes this boss somewhat odd in that you never have to directly attack it, though in the Game Boy Advance version, TNT Barrels must be thrown at Dumb Drum to defeat it.
Game Boy Advance
- In an early un-released addition of Donkey Kong Country, Dumb Drum's stage is shown to be different, as it is apparently set in a jungle of sorts.
