Spinning Pegs are quick-turning types of pegs found in the game DK: King of Swing. They appear as typical, yellow peg studs with a blue and white striped wheel surrounding it. They quickly spin in either a clockwise or counterclockwise motion. If Donkey Kong grabs the peg with the correct hand, he will spin fast and be able to be launched high if he lets go. If he grabs the peg with the wrong hand, the spinning peg will move extremely slowly, and he will not be able to reach the desired peg boards above him. They first appear in Lockjaw Falls, then later in a Bonus Level of Kremling Kamp, and lastly in the middle of K. Kruizer III Hull.
