Davy Bones' Locker is the boss level of Aqua World in DK: King of Swing. It is where Donkey Kong battles the giant skeletal eel, Davy Bones. The boss level is named after the ancient sea legend of Davy Jones' Locker, and it takes place in an enclosed underwater area.


There are four rows of five Peg Boards in the center of the stage, and the surrounding walls have spikes on them. Two gaps are on the ceiling, two more gaps are in the center of the left and right walls each, and two more gaps appear at the bottom-left and bottom-right corners of the arena.

The battle starts with Davy Bones emerging from the middle gap on the left side. It moves between a few more gaps, then its Health Meter is shown. During the battle, Donkey Kong (or Diddy Kong in Diddy Mode) must climb around on the Peg Boards. If the Kongs hit Davy Bones or the spikes on the walls, they lose a heart of their health. For its main attack, Davy Bones peeks out a gap, biting as it lunges at Donkey Kong. Davy Bones then circles around the Peg Boards, and Donkey Kong must perform a charge attack to stun Davy Bones. While Davy Bones is stunned, Donkey Kong must grab the orange peg at the tip of Davy Bones' tail, grab on a peg, and swing it into the spikes, slowly taking away at Davy Bones' health. After a while, Davy Bones escapes from Donkey Kong's grasp, and its peg also turns dark gray as it retreats into a gap. Dave Bones returns to normal after lunging back out. After enough hits, Davy Bones is defeated, and a gold medal appears.
