Davy Bones is a large, skeletal eel and the third boss of DK: King of Swing. He is the boss of Aqua World, and is located in his own small lair, Davy Bones' Locker. Both his name and location are derived from the old sea legend of Davy Jones' Locker.
Davy Bones attempts to attack Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong by lunging out at them from one of the gaps in the wall. The Kongs move around the stage on a few peg boards. If the primate is hit, he loses a heart. If the hero attacks him just as he does for a normal enemy, by performing a charge attack, he can knock out Davy Bones for a short period of time. Whenever Davy is stunned like this, he must grab hold of a small red spot on Davy's tail before the creature sinks to the bottom of the stage and swing him into a nearby row of spikes that are placed along the walls. After bashing Davy into these spikes several times, Davy Bones explodes and relinquishes its golden DK Medal.
