Stronghold Showdown is a small area located in K. Rool's Keep, a location in Crocodile Isle.


Donkey Kong Country 2/Land 2

Stronghold Showdown is just a straight path stage with Donkey Kong tied up in chains being taken to the ship. In Donkey Kong Country 2, there are two invisible Banana Coins and an invisible Extra Life Balloon when a Kong is thrown above.

Donkey Kong Country 2 (Game Boy Advance)

In the Game Boy Advance version, this stage is changed in a major way.

First of all, the Kongs see Kerozene, a new boss in the game, meaning that the area is now a battle area. This boss attacks Diddy and Dixie with two miniature Kleevers at first. They can be defeated by a Kannonball being thrown at them. Afterwards, Kerozene's face starts to glow and he starts breathing fire. To finish this step, the Kongs must throw a Kannonball in Kerozene's face to hit him. Next, Kerozene bangs on the ground with his mighty fists and the Kongs must defeat him with a Kannonball one last time. Kerozene then collapses, allowing Diddy and Dixie to gain the Kremkoin.
