The Volcano is the eighth and final world of the Donkey Kong Island in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D with nine levels. The boss of this world is Tiki Tong, the ruler of the Tiki Tak Tribe. The Volcano is a very dangerous world, and as its name implies, it takes place in a volcanic area. This volcano has main and side vents, lava tubes, a magma chamber, a magma reservoir, and a caldera. It features many new elements not seen in the game's previous worlds, such as lava that will instantly take out the Kongs and fireballs that move in a set pattern. There are structures that sink into the lava when stepped on and platforms that appear for a set period, then sink back into the lava. This area also brings back many elements from the past worlds, such as turf, minecarts, Rocket Barrels, vines, and even Rambi. The levels in this world are all diverse and use different mechanics.

  • According to Kynan Pearson, one of the designers of the game Donkey Kong Country Returns, the Volcano is actually the world Gorilla Glacier from the game Donkey Kong Country which is thawed out.[1] It is most likely that the snow montainous location has melted due to the heat caused by the volcano awakening.
