Gloomy Galleon is the fourth level in Donkey Kong 64. It is a water-based cove area featuring King K. Rool's sunken galleon from earlier Donkey Kong franchise games. The stage has a mild pirate theme with both underwater and cave-like areas. Players have to use Lanky Kong to defeat the area's boss, which is Puftoss. In this level, Lanky Kong can also transform into Enguarde the Swordfish.
The level is an eerie cove that is full of caverns, which hold many secret treasures and shipwrecks from earlier Donkey Kong games. Outside these caves are water areas towered over by cliffs. There is a lighthouse area that has a switch in order to raise or lower the area's water level. This area also has a floating ship that appears to be owned by K. Rool. There is also a hidden mermaid village beneath the waters and many treasure chests.
The other water area is a cove with many sunken objects. This holds the sunken Gangplank Galleon, which is ripped in half and holds secret Golden Bananas. There is also a hidden mechanical fish here and a cove where the player must race Seal.
