End of Level Target

From the Super Mario Wiki
End of Level Target in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

An End of Level Target[1] is an object found in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. They are found at the end of the level, hence the name, and can sometimes give the Kongs extra bonuses. It is basically a strength tester game, and if the Kongs land hard enough onto the target, the attached lever will make a barrel rise up to the top of the pole, giving them one of several roulette-style scrolling prizes, including: an Extra Life Balloon, the letter G, a Banana Coin, a Banana Bunch, a Banana, or even a DK Coin.

If Diddy Kong collects the prize, he will start rapping with a stereo, whereas if Dixie Kong collects the prize, she will play an electric guitar.

In Donkey Kong Land 2, the pole and barrel are not present, with only the target being featured; it works as a Spring to catapult the Kongs out of the level.



  • The hardest prize to get from the End of Level Target is the DK Coin for Web Woods, as it flashes by faster than the other prizes.
