Hard Hat, also known as Buroughs in an early Nintendo Power preview, is a mole wearing a yellow miner helmet and the third boss of Donkey Kong Land. He is fought in the level Mad Mole Holes of Monkey Mountains & Chimpanzee Clouds.
The fight against Hard Hat is similar to a game of Whac-A-Mole: Hard Hat pops out from one of three holes and tries throwing his hat at Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong. The active Kong must jump over his hat and jump on Hard Hat's head before he regains his hat. After being hit a couple of times, Hard Hat starts to throw his hat quicker. He can be defeated entirely after eight hits.
