Web Woods is the fifth stage of the world Gloomy Gulch of the Crocodile Isle, as well as the thirty-first stage overall in the game Donkey Kong Country 2 and the thirtieth stage overall in the game Donkey Kong Land 2. It is preceded by Parrot Chute Panic in both games, and followed by Kreepy Krow in Donkey Kong Country 2 and Kreepy Krow in Donkey Kong Land 2.


Within this foggy forest, Diddy and Dixie Kong must move through many Neeks, before finding a hill that leads them to an Animal Barrel, turning them into Squitter the Spider. Through most of the stage, the red spider must make web platforms to progress over large pits, and also beware of many Kaboings and Zingers littered throughout the location.


The level begins next to a few stair-like platforms that have Neeks on them. A DK Barrel is at the top of the stairs near a high piece of land. The Kongs can climb up to the piece of land to find a Crate and a Treasure Chest containing an item. They also find a pair of Krunchas and a green Kutlass here. Some raised land appears behind the area with the Kutlass, holding a Banana Coin. The "K" of the K-O-N-G Letters sits in front of it. If the heroes do not choose to climb up to the raised area found after the DK Barrel, they can continue along the path to find two green Kutlasses. After climbing up some platforms from here, the Kongs head along a pathway to a Neek. A lower area with a hill to the right of it is ahead. The primates must move around the hill by traveling along the path to the left, which leads them slightly closer to the foreground. A small ledge is shortly after this path that drops the heroes to another pathway with several Neeks on it. The path leads around the hill to a slightly raised piece of land with a Zinger on it. A Kaboom in a TNT Barrel rests next to the Zinger.

If the Kongs pass the Zinger, they can find a passage in the side of a wall that takes them into an area with an Animal Barrel in it, which transforms them into Squitter the Spider. A DK Barrel floats above the Animal Barrel. At this point, Squitter must enter another passage in the side of a wall. The passage takes him into an open area. A gap can be found at the beginning the area, with a Zinger and a Banana Bunch floating in it. Farther ahead, some raised land with a Zinger on it can be seen. A Kutlass waits for Squitter at the bottom of the hill. Using his webs to climb the hill allows Squitter to reach a pathway with several stairs on it. Kaboings bounce all the way up the stairs. An abyss can be found to the right of here with a few Zingers flying throughout it. Two Zingers guard a DK Barrel at the top of a hill that follows this gap, and a smaller abyss can be found after the hill. A Krook stands on a platform on the other side of the gap. Another gap follows the platform, along with another platform on the other side. There is an vertical arrangement of four Zingers above another abyss. Afterward, Squitter lands on the ground, and a green Kaboing bounces off a hill in the center; the DK Barrel and Star Barrel are located below the hill.

If Squitter continues, he reaches another wall of Zingers who float above a wide gap. If Squitter passes them and travels over the gap, he comes up to a few bananas and the letter "O". Two more groups of Zingers also appear. A few more platforms are on the other side of the abyss. Soon, Squitter can find a larger abyss ahead of him. A Kloak stands on the platform on the opposite side of the gap. Two more gaps are ahead, with more platforms on the other sides of them. Kannons stand on the two platforms following the gaps. Another pit can be found after the second Kannon, and it has the letter "N" in it. Some stair-like structures are located on the other side of it, and Mini-Neckies swoop down as Squitter goes down the stairs. The Mini-Neckies continue to attack him as he cross a large gap nearby. A platform can be found on the other side of the abyss with a Kannon on it. More Zingers can be found floating in the gap. A hill is on the other side of the gap, and as soon Squitter drops down it, a green Kaboing jumps at him from a hill in the background. A second hill can be found, and it has another Kaboing on it. A Kannon also shoots at Squitter as he progresses along this pathway. A small gap follows here, and once it is crossed, Squitter can find a No Animal Sign. If he crosses it, he is transformed back into the Kongs. The End of Stage Target can be found nearby, and the heroes can blast on it from a Barrel Cannon to win either a Banana, a Banana Bunch, a Banana Coin, or even a DK Coin.

K-O-N-G Letters[]

Letter K: If the Kongs reach the top platform, they will encounter the K after passing by the Kruncha and before the Kutlass.

Letter O: During the long chasm part of the level, after taking out 3 Zingers, the Letter O will be seen right after.

Letter N: After Squitter takes out the Kannon enemy on the tall platform, the Letter O is found in between a chasm far down.

Letter G: The Letter G is obtained right after Squitter passes the "No-Animal Sign".


  • The DK Coin is seen at the End of Stage Target. It flashes for a fraction of a second, so the Kongs will have to time their barrel launch carefully to get it.

Bonus Levels[]

  • In another long chasm section, there is an arrow made of bananas pointing to the left. After passing it, a Kannon will fire a very slow moving cannonball, which is a hint. Squitter will follow the cannonball past the arrow, and it will break open a part of the lower wall. The Bonus Level is "Find the Token", and it takes place in a bramble forest.
  • The second Bonus Area is found in the same way as the first. Squitter will find another left arrow of bananas, and will let the Kannon fire a cannonball towards him. The cannonball will break open the wall again. The Bonus Level uses the "Collect the Stars" game, and the stars form Rare's 'R' symbol.



  • This stage is very similar to the stage Rattle Battle, belonging to the worlds Krem Quay in the game Donkey Kong Country 2, and Krem Cauldron in the game Donkey Kong Land 2, respectively, as most of it's played with the titular Animal Buddy Rattly the Rattlesnake. In the case of Web Woods, the stage's name refers to Squitter the Spider and his webs.
