Deep Reef Grief
The first half of the level is a generic water level. Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong must swim through a network of narrow passages, between massive coral reefs, while avoiding aquatic enemies along the way. Like other underwater levels, there are forks in the path leading to things such as Bonus Barrels or the level's DK Coin. After the Star Barrel, the Kongs can enter an Animal Barrel to transform into Enguarde for the rest of the level. As Enguarde, he can quickly swim through the water and defeat enemies.
At the beginning of the level, the heroes begin their journey by swimming between the plants and corals around the area. After passing a few Bazzas, they find the letter K and have to head on through the bending pathway, passing a few more enemies. Once the monkeys make their way through an upward, Lurchin-infested pathway, they start to float downwards to find the letter O. After they get this, they continue through the area and have to dodge several Lurchins. The pathway twists and turns throughout even more of the level, and the Kongs eventually meet some more Kocos and Bazzas as they move along the narrow areas. Avoiding numerous enemies, the heroes soon curve into a downwards pathway and find the Star Barrel.
About halfway through the level, the Kongs make their way to an Animal Barrel. Upon entering this commonly found barrel, they turn into Enguarde. Enguarde should swim through the remaining portion of the level after this and travel between the narrow path of coral. With the area being full of sharp turns and sharp Lurchins, the swordfish's travels is not easy. After passing a school of Bazzas, the fish makes his way west to a No Animal Sign, turning him back into the Kongs. At this point, the group should enter a large, open area full of many enemies. Eventually, they continue along another narrow path and have to avoid several more schools of Bazzas. They soon come up to the letter G. From there, they end up swimming through more of the narrow pathway, until they hover south and see a flagpole. After touching the flagpole, the level ends.
