Mainbrace Mayhem (Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest)
Mainbrace Mayhem is the second level of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and the second level of the first world, Gangplank Galleon. It is unlocked by clearing Pirate Panic, and is the first level to take place on a ship's mast. Diddy and Dixie Kong must climb multiple ship masts and yards in order to progress, using vertical and horizontal ropes to reach the top of each one. Unlike Donkey Kong Country, the Kongs cannot swing from these ropes.
Alongside Neeks and Klomps, two new enemies are introduced in the level: Klingers, who climb up and slide down the ropes throughout, and Click-Clacks, beetles who walk on the yards throughout. Mainbrace Mayhem also introduces the Kannon and Kannonball as obstacles.
The level begins on a yard with a Click-Clack and a few bananas on it. There is a tilted yard just ahead with a pair of Neeks and a barrel on it. A DK Barrel shakes in front of a nearby rope that leads up to a higher yard and the letter K. A Click-Clack is on this yard, and two more of these blue insects are on the following yard to the left. A crate also sits on the yard. Ropes are above here, and a Klinger slides along them, guarding a Banana Coin. The ropes can be used to reach a yard with another Click-Clack on it. A set of ropes floats near here with the letter O and another Klinger on it. Two yards are located around these ropes. The one on the left holds two Banana Coins, while the one to the right leads to some ropes. A Click-Clack is on this yard. Once the Kongs climb the ropes, they find themselves on a higher yard with a barrel. The Star Barrel is also above them here.
Neeks march down a tilted yard just ahead. Ropes are right after the mob of foes, holding a DK Barrel. When the Kongs climb the rope, they can find a yard with two Klomps and a crate on it. They can either travel along this yard or continue along the rope, which leads above the Kremling enemies. Many bananas are along the long rope. At the end of the rope and the yard, the heroes can find two sets of ropes, both of which that are infested with Klingers. The letter N is next to the second set of ropes, which can be climbed to reach a yard with a Klomp, a DK Barrel, and a kannonball. There is a tilted yard nearby to the west, which has a pair a Click-Clacks marching along it. A flat yard is at the end of this one, which holds a cannon that can shoot the primates to a Bonus Level if the kannonball found previously is inserted into it. Some ropes with a Klinger on them are above here. The Kongs can climb along the ropes to reach a second set of ropes with two Klingers on them. A yard is hidden to the left of here with a Bonus Barrel located above it. Soon, the heroes climb farther along the ropes, which lead straight to a yard with the End of Level Target. The end prizes include a Banana Bunch, Banana Bunch Coin, or a red Extra Life Balloon.
