Kreepy Krow is the boss level of Gloomy Gulch, the fourth world of Donkey Kong Land 2. Kreepy Krow, the ghost of Krow, must be defeated to reach K. Rool's Keep. In this game, Kreepy Krow has the same appearance as regular Krow due to the palette limitations of the Game Boy.


The battle takes place on the rigging of a ship. The arena consists of two floors with a set of ropes in between.

At the beginning of the fight, Kreepy Krow sends four Mini-Neckies after the Kongs. Unlike in Donkey Kong Country 2, it is not necessary to defeat any of the Mini-Neckies. Instead, an egg will fall onto the stage after the fourth one appears. The Kongs must pick up the egg and throw it at Kreepy Krow to damage him. After doing this twice, Kreepy Krow will fly upward. A hook will appear, and the Kongs can use it to reach a set of ropes. While climbing them, Kreepy Krow attempts to drop eggs on the Kongs. At the top of the ropes is a Barrel Cannon that will launch the Kongs to the second floor. Here, Kreepy Krow resumes his previous attack pattern. This time, the Mini-Neckies come faster, and the egg bounces before landing. After hitting Kreepy Krow two more times, he goes down and drops a Banana Coin.

  • In the Japanese version, the rope section was shortened a small amount, presumably to make this level slightly easier. To compensate, the platform beneath the ropes was raised, and the second hook that appears was raised to be able to reach the newly raised platform.
