Millstone Mayhem is the fifth stage in Monkey Mines appearing in the game Donkey Kong Country. It comes after Stop & Go Station and before the boss battle with Master Necky.


The level takes place in a temple area, which is full of Krushas, millstones (controlled by Gnawties), and tires to bounce on. The Krushas can only be defeated with a Barrel being thrown an it, or getting jumped on by Donkey Kong. The tires are used to jump over the millstones, and also reach high areas. There is an Animal Crate containing Winky.

Collectibles and Secrets[]



  • If a Krusha is lured at the beginning of the stage to the entrance door and the main character is Diddy, they can proceed to jump along the entrance door onto the Krusha and aim right which if done correctly will cause Diddy to repeatedly bounce off the Krusha and they will eventually begin to start acquiring lives.
