Krow's Nest is the boss level of Gangplank Galleon, the first world of Donkey Kong Land 2. The Kongs must defeat Krow to access the second world, Krem Cauldron. The name of the level is a pun on the observation point of a ship, the crow's nest, which Krow's Nest acts as for Gangplank Galleon.

The battle takes place on one of the ship's masts, with the top of a sail serving as a floor. Unlike in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, the nest does not appear on-screen and the battle only takes place on one screen. The boss fight is otherwise very similar to the one from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.


When Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong enter the boss level, Krow flies up to his nest and takes an egg. Krow swoops down at the Kongs with the egg and to the opposite side. The active Kong must jump over Krow when he swoops at them. Krow then drops the egg, which bounces a few times, and it goes lower with each bounce. The Kongs can jump on the egg to stop it from bouncing and then throw it at Krow. This process is repeated one more time.

After taking a second hit, Krow changes his attack pattern to flying back and forth, causing eggs to fall from his nest. Every egg spins except the fifth one, which directly lands onto the ground. Diddy or Dixie must pick up the egg and attack Krow with it. This is repeated one more time.

After taking a fourth hit, Krow gets defeated and leaves behind a Kremkoin. Diddy and Dixie then move on to the next world, Krem Cauldron.
