|Boss Level||Mangoruby Run|
|Games||Donkey Kong Country Returns
Its feet resemble leaves, its eyes resemble flowers and its body resembles turnips (or possibly radishes). Normally, it is a docile creature that usually sleeps, but when Wacky Pipes hypnotizes it, it becomes dangerous to Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. It has flower petals for eyes, and also has a mango-like head, along with body segments that look like rubies (hence the name).
During the boss battle, its body becomes electrified. The player must hit switches on 7 circular platforms to reveal light in order for it to become docile. After this is done, the player can jump onto it and get rid of 2 segments of the beast. Eventually, it is defeated, freeing it from Wacky Pipes' control. Donkey Kong then sends Wacky Pipes flying.
- His Italian adaptation of the name has a really different meaning to the English one. It is "Dragruco", which means "Drago" and "Bruco". (Dragon and caterpillar). This proves it is a dragon of some sort.
- the Mangoruby design concept may be based partially on the mythological Wyrm, which is a dragon with a drake head, and worm-like (in some cases serpent-like) body.
- Mangoruby is the only boss in Donkey Kong Country Returns that gets easier with every stage, in a way. While the Mangoruby may get less segments, it also makes it easier to avoid when it turns hostile.
