K. Lumsy's Prison,[1] or K. Lumsy's Island,[2][3] is a small round island that the giant Kremling K. Lumsy is trapped in for most of Donkey Kong 64. The interior is much larger than the exterior but is mostly empty except for the cage holding the Kremling, although the area does contain two Golden Bananas. Both of them can only be obtained by Lanky Kong, the first outside the prison with his Grape Shooter and the second inside using his OrangStand Sprint.

K. Lumsy's Prison is later seen in the ending, after Funky Kong launches K. Rool out of his wrecked airship and into the prison. While not actually shown on screen, it is implied K. Lumsy beats him up in retaliation for being locked up.

In an unused, extended Game Over cutscene, for unknown reasons, K. Lumsy's Prison appears at the end, where the player is spawned at the entrance and can jump in place.[4]
