Kleever's Kiln is the boss level of Crocodile Cauldron, the second world of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. To reach the third world, Krem Quay, the Kongs must defeat Kleever, a giant sword.


Kleever's Kiln in the GBA version

The battle takes place in a volcano. The arena consists of two ledges with a large lava pit in the middle. There are two Banana Bunch Coins floating high above the right side of the arena.

At the start of the battle, Kleever, held by an arm made of fire, rises from the lava and starts throwing fireballs. After he throws three fireballs, a Kannonball will spawn. Throwing it at Kleever will damage him and cause several hooks to spawn over the lava. The Kongs must use the hooks to cross the lava while avoiding Kleever and his fireballs. When they reach the other side, there will be another Kannonball there to hit Kleever with. Upon doing so, the hooks will reappear, and the Kongs must cross the lava again to find a third Kannonball. After the third hit, Kleever will sink into the lava, then rise back out of it, this time without the fiery arm, and start floating around. After it tries to stab the Kongs, a large number of hooks will appear over the lava, allowing them to cross it again and find another Kannonball. Hitting Kleever will cause him to turn red and slash at the Kongs for a few seconds. Once he calms down, another Kannonball will appear. Kleever shatters after taking six hits, and the Kongs get a Kremkoin for defeating him.
