Master Necky Snr. (stylized as Master Necky, Sr. in the Nintendo Player's Guide[1]) is a gigantic Necky and the sixth boss of Donkey Kong Country. He is the boss of Chimp Caverns and is fought in the boss level, Necky's Revenge. Master Necky Snr. is the last obstacle that Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong encounter before the final boss fight against King K. Rool on Gang-Plank Galleon.

Master Necky Snr. fights similarly to Master Necky, but he spits coconuts farther and faster. Master Necky Snr. starts by spitting one coconut at the Kongs, although after each hit, Master Necky spits one more coconut at the Kongs. To attack Master Necky Snr., the Kongs must use the bouncy tire in the center to bounce high and onto Master Necky Snr.'s head. After five hits, Master Necky Snr. falls onto the floor in defeat.

In the Game Boy Advance remake, Necky's Revenge involves Master Necky collaborating with Master Necky Snr. in a battle against the Kongs. Both of them spit out a single nut, one after the other. When Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong jump on either boss five times, that boss is defeated. Afterward, the other boss starts shooting four nuts in succession. When the Kongs jump on both bosses five times, they win the boss fight.
