The ship is about the size of an actual galleon, but it is big enough to hold the final battle, where the Kongs enter the left side and find King K. Rool on the opposite side. The heroes must avoid the boomerang-like crown thrown by K. Rool. When the crown is off of K. Rool's head, it is the opportunity for the player to jump on and attack the boss. In the first phase of the boss battle, the primates must also avoid the boss when he runs back and forward between the edges of the arena. King K. Rool can make cannonballs fall from the top of the screen and harm the Kongs during the second phase. In the third and final phase, the heroes must avoid the boss while he makes short leaps to move between the edges of the stage. After taking a total of ten hits, King K. Rool is defeated. It is followed by the ending cutscene, where the Kongs get back their bananas, and the development staff credits.
- In the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy Advance versions of the game Donkey Kong Country, the Donkey Kong Island can be seen in the background of the boss stage.
- In the GBA version of the game Donkey Kong Country, the Gang-Plank Galleon is also where the characters credits from the game are shown, instead of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong's Treehouse, like in the SNES version (see Videos section above).
