Kreepy Krow is the fifth boss in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and the fourth in Donkey Kong Land 2 who is located in Gloomy Gulch and is an undead ghost version of Krow, the first boss in the game.


When Diddy and Dixie Kong engage battle, they see Kreepy Krow. Krow sends out three ghost Mini-Neckies; they fly at the Kongs, one at a time, from the eggs thrown at the living Krow. After the barrage, a real Mini-Necky appears. Jumping on its head makes a Barrel appear. Holding it in front of Kreepy Krow makes him run into it and be weakened. Diddy and Dixie then must jump on the hooks, jump to the right, and climb the Ropes, all while avoiding the eggs.

Next time, four ghostly Mini-Neckies appear, and then a living one, followed by another ghost. As before, Diddy and Dixie must grab a Barrel and it throw at Kreepy Krow, and climb the hooks, ropes, then avoid the eggs. This time, it becomes much more challenging, as eggs fall down from not only from the top of the screen, but also the left and right sides of the screen. If a player is lucky enough to make it to the top, five ghosts appear, then the real one, followed by two ghosts. Diddy and Dixie throw the Barrel at Kreepy Krow to defeat him. The way he dies is by a Barrel being thrown at him and shakes for two seconds and explodes into golden stars, destroying Kreepy Krow for good.

  • Rare probably made this boss as a palette swap (color change) of Krow to not waste memory space on a different boss, as was commonly done in Donkey Kong Country.
  • The ghost Mini-Neckies are possibly the babies of the eggs that were broken when the player first defeated the living Krow.
  • It has been speculated that Mr. X was supposed to be the boss of Gloomy Gulch but, for unknown reasons, he was turned down and Kreepy Krow took his place. However, this theory was jossed once it was confirmed Mr. X is just an early version of Kackle.
  • A small cutscene of Krow turning into Kreepy Krow can be seen after defeating Krow in the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.
