Ugly Ducting is the fifth stage of the world Tin Can Valley of the Northern Kremisphere, as well as the thirty-third stage overall in the game Donkey Kong Land III. It is preceded by Bazuka Bombard and followed by Stalagmite Frights.


Taking place in a damp and dark pipeline, the primates will begin the stage underwater. They will have to swim through the bleak pipeline through the first half of the stage, possibly meeting some dead-ends. As they swim through this area, they will encounter the enemies, Lurchins, Bounty Basses, and Kocos. In the second half of the stage, the primates will begin to explore the dry areas of the stage. There, they will be able to turn into Squawks the Parrot and fly through a short maze of pipes. As the bird makes his way around the twists and turns of the stage, he will encounter the normal enemies such as BuzzesKobbles and Krimps.
