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.


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 is not visible and the battlefield consists of a single screen.

Krow starts the battle off by grabbing an egg and slowly flying across the bottom of the screen, forcing the Kongs to jump over him. He will then drop the egg, making it bounce. The Kongs can jump on the egg to stop its bouncing, then grab it and use it to attack Krow. After doing this twice, eggs will start falling from the top of the screen. Most of them drop offscreen, but every fifth one will land, and the Kongs can pick it up and attack Krow again. Two more hits takes down Krow, rewarding the Kongs with a Banana Bunch Coin.
