Kong-Fused Cliffs is the twenty-seventh level in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is also the second area of Razor Ridge.

In this cliff level, the Kongs find themselves climbing up a long rope to reach the peak of a mountain. The main gimmick of this level is that the ropes catch on fire as they are climbed.

Level layout[edit]

When the level begins, the Kongs should climb up the rope lit up by a small flame. As the flame rises, they need to continue to move upwards. The monkeys, after traveling between thin openings in the mountains, get in a barrel to blast to the letter K and back onto the rope. Higher up, they pass several Buzzes and Kopters, moving along the sides of the rope. Soon, the monkeys reach the end of the rope and jump to the second rope. This rope leads them to more enemies. Whilst the Kongs climb this rope, Kopters fly in from both sides. Eventually, they reach the letter O and hop over to the level's third rope. As they climb up this rope, they find the Star Barrel.

About halfway into the level, the apes should continue their journey and climb between a few groups of Buzzes, some circling the area. Soon, they find a Kopter right in their path, so they need to jump into a nearby Barrel Cannon to blast over it. After passing some more Buzzes, Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong find the letter N to the left. They should jump to the letter and be caught by another Barrel Cannon. The barrel then blasts them back onto the flaming rope. After that, the monkeys avoid a Buzz moving in a C shaped pattern, and later, a group of three Buzzes flying back and fourth through the open area is found. Climbing higher, the apes soon encounter some Kopters hovering towards them. They should maneuver around the rope to dodge the enemies and continue to avoid them the rest of the way. Eventually, the Kongs climb all the way to the highest point in the mountain, where they find a flagpole to the right. Jumping off of the rope before getting burnt, they should raise its flag to end the level.



DK Coin[edit]

  • To the left of the level's flagpole, the Kongs can see a wooden platform jutting out of the mountainside. They should use their Team Up move there and throw a monkey onto the tunnel near them. They land next to a Steel Keg which they should carry to the hidden Koin to the lower area on the left. The Kongs should then throw the Steel Keg to the nearest wall whilst standing on Koin. Upon being thrown, the Steel Keg hits the wall, recoils back into Koin, killing him. This earns the Kongs the DK Coin of the level.

K-O-N-G Letters[edit]

The letter O
  • K: Collected by jumping into an Arrow Barrel at the beginning of the level.
  • O: Found above two Buzzes encircling an area west of the first Bonus Barrel.
  • N: A trail of bananas will lead Dixie/Kiddy into the "N" Letter, and an Arrow Barrel is provided to get the heroes back on the rope.
  • G: An Auto-Fire Barrel near some Kopters will launch the heroes into the "G" Letter and two Banana Bunches.

Bonus Levels[edit]

  • A while before the letter O, the heroes climb up the second rope and find a lone banana sitting on a steep hill to the right. They should get onto the hill and walk up to find a Bonus Barrel. The special barrel leads them to a Bonus Level, where they climb up another flaming rope. As they climb, they need to jump into Barrel Cannons to shoot around some Buzzes in the center of their path. At the end of the stage, the monkeys find the Bonus Coin.
  • Shortly after the letter N, the heroes find a trail of bananas to the right. They should jump to the bananas to be caught in mid-air by a hidden Barrel Cannon. The barrel blasts them into a Bonus Barrel, which then takes them into a Bonus Level. There, the heroes have to rush up a quickly-burning rope while dodging several Kopters. Once they reach the top of the area, they are awarded with a Bonus Coin.
