Diddy's first action takes place aboard K. Rool's scuttled flagship, Gangplank Galleon. Even though this hulk isn't seaworthy, it's still manned by a scurvy Kremling crew. You'll find lots of hooks and rigging to climb on here. You can also duck into the flooded cargo hold for more fun!”

Gangplank Galleon is the name of the first world of both Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and its pseudo-sequel, Donkey Kong Land 2. It takes place on the ship of the same name, which belongs to the Kremlings and their leader, K. Rool.

As shown in the levels of this world, the galleon sports many chasms inside, which are dangerous for the Kongs. The masts form a good clamber system, and inside the ship is a flooded caliginous cargo. The masts, hold and deck host uncountable enemies, such as Neeks, Klomps and Kaboings, Flotsams, Puftups, Krunchas, Lockjaws, Shuris, Klobbers, and Click-Clacks.

  • The manual for the SNES version labels the first world as Gangplank Galley despite mentioning Gangplank Galleon in its description.[1] This was not corrected in the GBA version, which uses a slightly rewritten description that does not refer to it by the proper name.[2]
  • Due to the German translation of the level Lockjaw's Locker, the Gangplank Galleon has been believed to be a reference to The Flying Dutchman, a ship whose captain was cursed to roam the seas forever on that ship. The ship in fact comes extremely close to matching the ghost ship.
