Donkey Kong Island (world)
|Donkey Kong Island|
|Game||Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze|
|<< List of worlds >>|
Donkey Kong Island is the sixth and last main island the Kongs have to venture through in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port of the same name. The island was turned into a snowscape by the Snowmads after claiming it as their territory and its levels, with the exception of the optional stages, are each orderly based on a world from Donkey Kong Country Returns.
The map of Donkey Kong Island is navigated using Barrel Cannons. Since the paths are not physically marked on the map of the island, there are arrows that indicate where the player can go, much like on the world maps of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.
|Code||Name/Screenshot||No. of Puzzle Pieces||Description|
|9||A level set in the island's Jungle, featuring collapsible walls and platforms.|
|5||A level themed around the Beach area. The sea below is freezing and cannot be swum in. Shipwreck parts can be pulled out of the water using fixed handles, revealing secrets or elevating the Kongs to higher platforms.|
|5||A level taking place in the island's Ruins, along the aqueducts there. Most of the time, stepping on one causes it to either collapse altogether or slant and fall off its supports.|
|7||The fourth Rocket Barrel stage in the game, set inside the Cave area (just like some levels of the world from its predecessor). The principal hazards are snowballs shot by cannons fixed on various surfaces. Passages are coated in snow, which sometimes drops down from the ceiling as the Kongs navigate them.|
|5||A level taking place in the island's Forest, devoted to the use of spring platforms and vines to traverse wide pits. Giant harmful snowflakes are prevalent obstacles in the level.|
|9||A level set in the Cliff area during an avalanche that obscures the view. The Kongs must rely on a multitude of objects driven downward by the avalanche in order to reach the end of the level.|
|5||A level taking place in the island's Factory. Electroids, returning from the previous adventure, briefly electrify objects that can be interacted with.|
|5||A stage contained within the island's Volcano and featuring Rambi the Rhino for the last time in the game. The Kongs must ride him through a series of sinking ice blocks and rows of enemies.|
|5||A stage dedicated to dynamite-related mechanisms. The Kongs are often forced to step on pressured platforms that will cause explosions somewhere near, prompting them to run to a safer place.|
|5||A level with falling icicles.|
|5||The sixth and last Hidden Kong Temple stage in the game. It features many structures moving along tracks, bobbing towards spikes on the ceiling and floor.|
|0||The final boss stage, where Lord Fredrik is battled.|

- This is the first occasion since the original Donkey Kong Country when the Kongs can explore arctic regions on Donkey Kong Island, as the aforementioned game featured Gorilla Glacier, the summit of the island. It was subsequently replaced in Donkey Kong Country Returns with the Volcano.
- The fact that the waters of Donkey Kong Island are very cold and dangerous in Tropical Freeze, and that Donkey Kong Country Returns lacked the ability to swim, make the original Donkey Kong Country the only game from its series where the player can explore the waters of Donkey Kong Island.
