Ba-boom kong 02 595.png
Species Baboon
First appearance Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (2014)

Ba-Boom, the Boisterous is the third boss in the game Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. He is the boss of Bright Savannah, appearing in the level Triple Trouble. Before the battle, the Kongs notice a Banana Bunch in the air by a wooden pole. As they try to grab it, Ba-Boom slyly snatches the bunch. He then splits into three, all of whom promptly mock the Kongs, angering them.

General information[edit]

Physical description[edit]

Ba-Boom is a black baboon with blue cheeks (like a mandrill) and messy hair. He wears a Viking helmet with the Snowmad symbol as well as blue bracelets on his arms and legs. Ba-Boom's split selves look exactly like him except one of them has teal cheeks and bracelets while the other has red cheeks and bracelets. Another way to tell the clones apart is that as they take damage, the fur of the twins begins turning lighter while Ba-Boom's color remains the same.


Ba-Boom swinging to attack the Kongs.

Ba-Boom and his "brothers" attack by swinging in a rope and swinging a hammer. When the player hits them, two of them will start rolling. They also throw watermelon bombs, which can be spiky or green; the green watermelons can be thrown back at them. When two are defeated, Ba-Boom will create shadow clones of himself, and repeat the aforementioned patterns.


To defeat Ba-Boom, the Kongs will have to damage the trio nine times, either by jumping on them or by throwing the watermelon bombs at them. The Kongs can only jump on Ba-Boom's rear, as his helmet will render jump attacks on the head useless. However, this can be mitigated by using Cranky's cane jump.
