Boss Game 8 is the Donkey Kong level of Jungle Hijinks in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. It is a boss fight against Donkey Kong, featuring a cannon that can rotate along an arc and shoot at different angles.


In this battle, Donkey Kong hangs on two vines using his hands and feet, moving erratically from vine to vine. If a Mini Mario comes into contact with Donkey Kong, he punches the Mini Mario and breaks it. Snapjaws appear as obstacles during this battle, moving up and down along certain vines. A bird also appears, which constantly moves from left to right and occasionally dives down towards the cannon containing Mini Marios. The only way to defeat Donkey Kong is to shoot Mini Marios towards the five girder platforms on the top of the screen, each with a Banana Bunch hanging from them, and drop a Banana Bunch on Donkey Kong. If a Mini Mario drops a Banana Bunch on one of the Snapjaws or the bird, they temporarily disappear. After hitting Donkey Kong with a Banana Bunch, his movement speed briefly increases. If the bird is present, its speed also briefly increases as it drops several eggs downwards. After taking 6 hits, Donkey Kong is defeated.
