Hideout Helm is the eighth and final world in Donkey Kong 64. The hideout is unlocked after players have returned the Boss Keys from Crystal Caves and Creepy Castle to K. Lumsy's prison, but at least 100 Golden Bananas are required to actually enter.
The goal is to shut down K. Rool's Blast-o-Matic before it destroys Donkey Kong Island. The amount of time players have to complete the stage depends on how many blueprints Snide receives from the Kongs; the player is given ten minutes automatically, plus one minute for each blueprint retrieved, for a total of up to 50 minutes.
If the player fails to complete the stage before time is up, Donkey Kong Island is blown up by the Blast-o-Matic, causing a Game Over. After completing the several Kong-based challenges, the timer ends with the Blast-o-Matic turned off. The player then needs to have collected four Battle Arena Crowns and have finished Cranky's Jetpac, and Frantic Factory's Donkey Kong arcade minigames in order to reach the room with the final K. Lumsy key.
Hideout Helm is unique from the first seven worlds in that it does not have any of the collectibles found in the game's other worlds (such as Golden Bananas) except for five Banana Medals (which are obtained by completing each Kong-specific Bonus level) and a Battle Arena Crown. The Kong Family shops and Snide's H.Q. are also absent.

Note that if the Blast-o-Matic hasn't been shut down, the timer will still be counting down while Diddy's in the Battle Arena.
