Fungi Forest is the fifth world of Donkey Kong 64, which is accessible after the player returns the Gloomy Galleon Boss Key to K. Lumsy's prison, and has collected 50 Golden Bananas. It is, as the name states, full of mushrooms. The stage centers around a giant Cuckoo Clock. The Cuckoo Clock has the ability to change day into night and vice-versa. Many areas are only accessible during certain times of the day. Enemies are also affected by time. They often become more hostile when the sun goes down. Dogadon is fought in a rematch by Chunky Kong here.

This world also introduces blue Kong Switches, though a blue one does appear in the lobby of Gloomy Galleon. They can only be activated once the Kongs get the Super Simian Slam potion from Cranky Kong.

Although this is the second level that Candy's Music Shop does not appear in (the first being Jungle Japes), her headphones can be found at various locations in this level.

Areas[edit]

Mill Area[edit]

This area contains several barns and mills that house several creepy enemies. Inside these mills are mechanical tasks the Kongs will have to face to get their Golden Bananas. These tasks include walking on dimly lit planks, turning on a conveyor belt, killing Bats in the attic, and battling a giant spider with Tiny Kong only. Snide's H.Q. appears in this area, but is only accessible during the day.

Giant Mushroom Area[edit]

This area has a gigantic mushroom surrounded by water. Inside the fungus, the Kongs have to climb up the different floors of this mushroom to tackle bananas and bonus barrels. These floors also lead to terraces outside, which have many other tasks as well. Cranky's Lab can be found here.

Big Tree Area[edit]

This area has a humongus redwood tree, inside of which sleeps the Owl that Diddy Kong must race (only during the night). Around the tree is a rabbit house, a smaller tree, and Lanky Kong's Kasplat.

Garden Area[edit]

This area has a tomato patch with several Tomatos surrounding an apple with a worm in it. Tiny Kong can plant seed in a hole which grows a giant living beanstalk. Funky's Store can be found here.

At the top platform of the Giant Mushroom, Lanky can hit a switch, enter the newly-opened door, kill the two Zingers, and bounce on the mushrooms to win a Golden Banana. Do the same switch, and go through the other open door. Travel into it, and then Super Simian Slam the mushrooms in order according to the chart, then play a round of Krazy Kong Klamor for Lanky's third Banana.

At nighttime, have Tiny go into the Tiny Barrel, go through the tiny hole, and enter hole. Shoot the Giant Spider in the eye after defeating his tiny spider minions.
