Cranky Kong in the game Donkey Kong Country 2 for SNES

The Kremling's Lost World, also known as Lost World, is the eighth and final world of the Crocodile Isle in the game Donkey Kong Country 2, as well as the seventh and final world in the game Donkey Kong Land 2. It is a secret area reachable only through Klubba's Kiosk(s). The only way to access every stage in this world is to collect all seventy-five Kremkoins in Donkey Kong Country 2 or forty-seven Kremkoins in Donkey Kong Land 2, and pay the coins to Klubba.

Each stage is significantly hard, although they can be beaten by the player with patience and skill. Kaptain K. Rool is the boss of this world.

Description

Here in this place, the entire origin and past of the Kremling species was kept.[1] The power source was the great secret of the Kremlings since times before the Kremling Kuthroats and Kremling Krew era.[2]

Donkey Kong Country 2

The Lost World itself is located inside Crocodile Isle and is fairly large in size. The area also has a big diversity in environments, some portions of it being jungle, others being volcanic, and some frozen caverns. In the center of the Lost World is a large volcano called Krocodile Kore, which happens to be shaped like a Kremling's head. In the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version of Donkey Kong Country 2, the same volcano also inexplicably pumps out an upward stream of multicolored energy.

If the Kongs manage to obtain the game's all seventy-five Kremkoins and clear all the stages in the Lost World, the mouth of Krocodile Kore will open and the heroes will be free to venture the temple inside. Inside the volcano, there is an altar, treasure and armored Kremling statues in the background. Here is where Diddy and Dixie Kong face the mad Kaptain K. Rool for the last time in both game versions. After a long fight, which consists mostly of dodging blasts and spiky Kannonballs from K. Rool's blunderbuss[3], the heroes can defeat the Kaptain by throwing a single regular Kannonball at him. K. Rool is then flung into the energy flow of Krocodile Kore. His bulky body ends up blocking the volcano's flow of energy. Eventually, the excess of energy building up sinks the entire Crocodile Island in the sea.

Donkey Kong Land 2

In Donkey Kong Land 2, the Lost World rises up from the bottom of the ocean along with the rest of Crocodile Isle. This time there is only one entrance to the Lost World, which is located near the Gloomy Gulch world. Moreover, this time around Diddy and Dixie Kong need to pay Klubba all forty-seven Kremkoins at once to enter the Lost World. After paying Klubba, entering and clearing all of the Lost World's stages, the primates get to enter the Krocodile Kore again, now inside a lava cave.

Once again, Kaptain K. Rool can be defeated here by dodging his shooting Kannonballs. After delivering a single hit from throwing a regular Kannonball at him, K. Rool is defeated again. During the final cutscene, Crocodile Isle gets sent to the bottom of the sea, this time permanently.

Profiles

Donkey Kong Country 2

"There are rumors of a lost world located deep beneath Crocodile Isle. It has been said that this is the source of the Kremlings, and that there is valuable treasure to be found there, including the elusive true ending of the game. Only the most clever explorers will find this place."

Trivia

  • Opposed to other worlds in Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2, the Lost World possesses its own music theme (see Videos section above).
  • In the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country 2, each cleared stage of the Lost World reveals a rock over the water next to the entrance of Krocodile Kore. The five rocks allow the main characters to access the final boss stage. These rocks are not present in the world map of the Game Boy Advance version.
  • In the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country 2, each stage of the Lost World, except Krocodile Kore, is accessible only by specific locations of the Klubba's Kiosk. However, in the GBA version, after paying Kremkoins to Klubba, his paid kiosks also allow the player to access any stages previously unlocked in the Lost World.
  • In Donkey Kong Land 2 and the GBA version of Donkey Kong Country 2, the volcano on the center of the Lost World does not release any energy, like in the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country 2.
  • Only in the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country 2, the crocodile head will display an opening animation when revealing the Krocodile Kore stage.
  • Krematoa, the final world in the game Donkey Kong Country 3, is also known as "Lost World". In the game Donkey Kong Land III, the final world is also called The Lost World.
