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, Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong have to climb up ropes, while the ropes themselves are being burnt from the bottom up; this means they must constantly climb to outpace the flame and ensure their safety. Buzz and Kopter are the only enemies encountered in the stage, serving as obstacles along the climb upward. Buzzes will fly in place or in repeating patterns, while Kopters will descend from above. Some secret areas of the level are found by following banana trails, leading to acquiring items such as KONG Letters, or finding a Bonus Barrel. The level's Koin enemy is encountered at the very end of the level, west of the Level Flag.
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.
