Donkey Kong Country Returns is one of the microgames in 9-Volt's Nintendo Classics level in WarioWare: Get It Together! It is based on the Wii game of the same name.


The player has to defeat all of the enemies on-screen using the character's move. The player does not lose the microgame if their character comes into contact with an enemy. Each level features different enemies that can appear in two different layouts per difficulty level, and takes place in different levels of the original game, with the corresponding music playing (in level 2's case, the music that plays outside of the chase segments, "Tree Top Rock Returns"). After clearing the microgame, either Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong appears, depending on which enemy layout is used.

  • Level 1: The microgame takes place in Jungle Hijinxs near the Mugly statues. The player has to defeat either one Tiki Goon or one Tiki Buzz flying back and forth.
  • Level 2: The microgame takes place in Muncher Marathon. The player has to defeat either a Frogoon and a purple Skittler or a Skittler and a Tiki Goon. Both combinations feature one enemy on each side of the screen.
  • Level 3: The microgame takes place at the end of the Golden Temple. The player has to defeat three Tiki Buzzes, which are either flying back and forth or up and down.

If two players are utilized for this microgame, more enemies appear in each level: three in levels 1 (which can now include Frogoons and Skittlers) and 2, and five Tiki Buzzes in level 3.
