A Key Temple pad as seen in the world maps of the game Donkey Kong Country Returns for Wii.

The Key Temples, also known as K-stages, are special hidden levels in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D that are unlocked by finding all of the K-O-N-G Letters in each regular level of a world. There is one Key Temple in each world, except for the Cloud world in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. The Key Temples levels do not possess K-O-N-G Letters to collect, Bonus Rooms or checkpoints. Completing each Key Temple grants a Rare Orb. All eight Rare Orbs are necessary to open the door to the Golden Temple in the overworld map of Donkey Kong Island.
