Donkey Kong Wiki

Feather Fiend is the boss level of the Factory in Donkey Kong Country Returns. It is preceded by Treacherous Track and followed by Furious Fire.

The Feather Fiend is actually a chicken named Colonel Pluck in a machine called the Stompybot 3000 used to squash Bananas and make the Tiki Tak Tribe's minions.


First, the Feather Fiend tries to squash players with its giant feet, revealing some chains that are vital in the Stompybot 3000. When players have pounded the chains enough times, the feet will break off and the glass protecting Colonel Pluck will shatter. When this happens, the Stompybot 3000 starts to hover and again try and squash players. Players must dodge his attack and jump on Colonel Pluck's head several times, thus causing him to be defeated

and the tiki will give up

After the aforementioned weak spot is hit enough so that the gauge turns completely red three times, the Stompybot 3000 sheds its legs and other defenses to change into its Hover Form. It also temporarily deactivates its jets in an attempt to smash the Kongs. The weak point this time is Colonel Pluck himself. Players must now jump on the Colonel three more times for them to emerge victorious.
