Lockjaw's Locker (Donkey Kong Land 2)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
This level is underwater themed and features Flotsams, Shuris and, the most important, Lockjaws. It also marks the first appearance in Donkey Kong Land 2 of Enguarde the Swordfish. It takes place in the flooder hold of Gangplank Galleon.
The Kongs begin the level on some large crates that are followed by a trail of bananas that lead into the water. On the other side of the water, the heroes can find a Klomp and a small alcove with a single banana in it. They must swim through the water to progress; as they lower themselves in the water, they approach a few bananas, a Flotsam, and a DK Barrel. A wider area is southwest from the barrel that contains a two more Flotsams and a crate that the primates can swim through to reach a hidden room full of bananas and a Banana Coin. A group of bananas are between two Flotsams, and they are arranged to form an arrow pointing to the south. If they follow the bananas, they come down to a third Flotsam and another arrow made of bananas that points downwards. The letter K and an additional Flotsam are under the bananas, and a trail of bananas placed along a wall is to the right of them. If the heroes continue south from here, they encounter a few more Flotsams and then a slightly smaller area containing a DK Barrel. The area below this barrel consists of an alcove containing an Animal Barrel, which can turn the Kongs into Enguarde when entered, a Lockjaw, and a formation of bananas that create and arrow pointing to the west.
If the arrow is followed, the two friends make their way through a wide passage that contains a few Flotsams. Eventually, they find themselves in an area with a Lockjaw and a Banana Bunch. Another Flotsam and a formation of bananas that create an arrow pointing upwards are above here. As the primates follow this arrow, they come past a crate that they can travel through to reach an enclosed area with a DK Coin in it. After they swim slightly farther north from here, they reach another formation of bananas that create an arrow directing the heroes to the right. A Shuri is located to the left of this arrow, and it guards a crate that the heroes can swim through in order to access a hidden area with a Flotsam, some bananas, and a Banana Coin. If the group follows this arrow and heads to the right, they reach a DK Barrel that is surrounded by some bananas and another arrow that is formed by a set of bananas. Above this DK Barrel, the heroes can find the way into a hidden area that contains a Flotsam and the letter O. A Shuri is also in this area around the DK Barrel, being followed by a Lockjaw and then a Flotsam as the heroes travel north. After they pass the Flotsam, they reach a No Animal Sign that can turn Enguarde back into the Kongs, if they had transformed into him earlier in the level. A group of crates that stick out of the water are near here, and the level's Star Barrel sits on them.
If the Kongs head backwards from here onto some additional crates, they can find a hidden Barrel Cannon above them that can blast them to a banana, some other Barrel Cannons, and a Banana Bunch. The last Barrel Cannon here shoots them back to the ground on top of a DK Barrel, which is located immediately after a Neek and the Star Barrel. If the heroes continue from here, they come past a Klomp and another large body of water that they must jump into. As they swim down through here, they encounter some Flotsams and a few bananas, eventually reaching a group of bananas that form the shape of an arrow pointing to the left. Lockjaws, Flotsams, and a Shuri are around the arrow, as well as a crate that the heroes can travel through in the east side of the area to access a hidden section of the level, which contains a Banana Bunch. An Animal Barrel that contains Enguarde is also in the northwest part of the area, and the Kongs turn into the swordfish if they enter it. If the primates head southwest from this large area, they soon reach a formation of bananas that create an arrow pointing down. A wide passage leading to the south is to the left of this arrow, and if the two friends travel through it, they come up to more Flotsams, Lockjaws, and Shuris, as well as a DK Barrel. They can also find a crate on the way down that they can swim through to access a hidden area that consists of several bananas, a few Banana Coins, and the letter N.
There is another set of bananas that are positioned to form that shape of an arrow nearby. It points to the east, where there are most Flotsams, Lockjaws, and Shuris. As they travel across the area, they come past an additional arrow formed by bananas that directs them to the east. Eventually, the primates find a passage leading to the north, which consists of a Flotsam and an arrow made of bananas that points upwards. If the arrow is followed, they enter a wide area containing more Lockjaws, Flotsams, and Shuris. The letter G is located in a small alcove in the top-right corner of the room, and a Banana Bunch is located in a different alcove in the bottom-left corner of it. As the heroes travel to the northwest part of the area, they come up to an arrow composed of bananas that points to the right towards the letter G. If they continue north from here, they reach a smaller room with more underwater foes in it, as well as four bananas that line a wall to the left. A DK Barrel wobbles in an alcove in the bottom-right corner of this area, and an arrow mode of bananas is above it that directs the heroes farther north, where a No Animal Sign can be found on some crates. If Enguarde passes it, he is turned back into the Kongs, who then earn a Banana Bunch for leading him to the sign. Some larger crates stick out of the water ahead near here that the primates can climb on to discover a spring that they can bounce on to complete the level successfully. A hidden area of water containing a floating Extra Life Balloon and a Banana Coin are to the left of the spring.
