Hideout Helm is the eighth and final world of Donkey Kong 64. The world hub can be accessed after the Kongs unlock the sixth and seventh padlocks on K. Lumsy's cage. The Kongs must have a minimum of 100 Golden Bananas to enter the world itself.
Hideout Helm functions as the control room of the Crocodile Isle. The Kongs' objective is to decommission the Blast-o-Matic before it fully charges, and King K. Rool fires it at Donkey Kong Island. The Kongs have a limited amount of time to meet this objective. The timer counts from ten minutes by default, but Snide can delay it from firing by a minute for each Blueprint the Kongs give to him. There are forty Blueprints in total, meaning that the countdown can begin from fifty minutes at highest. This timer even counts down during the Bonus Stages and the Battle Arena challenge.
Hideout Helm is unique from the previous worlds in that it has few collectibles. Its only collectibles are five Banana Medals and a Battle Arena Crown, the former of which replaces the Golden Bananas. The Kong Family shops and Snide's H.Q. are also absent.
Hideout Helm has the eighth and final Boss Key locked behind a door that the Kongs can only open with the Nintendo Coin and Rareware Coin. There is also a Banana Fairy inside the room, which can be captured even outside the room via the Banana Fairy's Camera.
The world's Bonus Stages take place inside a steel drum with K. Rool's head instead of normal Bonus Barrels. Each Kong must complete two challenges, which deactivates their corresponding colored section of the Blast-o-Matic when completed. Each Kong receives a Banana Medal for completing their challenges.
