Davy Bones is a large, skeletal eel boss in the game DK: King of Swing. The creature's name, as well as the name of the level it is located in, are derived from the old sea legend of Davy Jones' Locker. Davy Bones is similar in appearance and in behavior to Dragon Kremling, a boss in the game's sequel, DK: Jungle Climber.
Davy Bones is encountered by Donkey Kong (or Diddy Kong in Diddy mode) in the Aqua World. He tries to attack the Kong by lunging at him from one of the holes he inhabits. 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, the skeletal sea creature explodes and the Kong obtains the golden medal that Davy was guarding.
Davy Bones is fought in the final level of the Aqua World, Davy Bones' Locker. It is an underwater level, surrounded by a multitude of spikes that are vital to defeating the creature. Many peg boards are also in the center of the area, and a few gaps are in the walls, which the boss emerges from to attack.
