The galleon is wooden with three riggings, three windows with cannons on the edges, the Kremling Krew symbol on the middle sailboat and a black flag on the back, K. Rool's golden figurehead on the ship bow and a red flag striped with black at the top of the mainbrace.

K. Rool's cabin contains four windows, desk, chandelier with four candles, maps, a sword, a chest with the same crown, barrels, a bed, a red carpet and portraits.

The galleon appears in Donkey Kong Country's sequel, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Diddy and Dixie Kong traveled through the galleon, which was wrecked, decaying, and abandoned on the left coast of Crocodile Isle, and holds many stages. The ship houses many enemies, not to mention a very large bird boss living in the crow's nest, Krow. Beating this area gives access to the Crocodile Cauldron in Donkey Kong Country 2, and the Krem Cauldron in Donkey Kong Land 2.

In Donkey Kong Land 2, Kaptain K. Rool raised the galleon from the waters, newly reviving it as with the rest of Crocodile Isle. It is ravaged somewhat from being underwater for so long, and is later sunken once more by the Kongs, this time for good.


Donkey Kong 64

In Donkey Kong 64, in the Gloomy Galleon's water cove, what is believed to be the remains of the galleon lies on the seabed ripped in half. Despite all the decay and seaweed, Kaptain K. Rool's portraits and log book, as with the ship itself, remained in perfect condition (how this is possible is never explained).
