Stronghold Showdown is the last level of K. Rool's Keep in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. It is a straight path with no enemies, though the first visit gives the Kongs a free Kremkoin, alongside the typical hidden pair of Banana Coins in each boss level. The first visit briefly shows Donkey Kong, tied up in rope in the middle of the room, before he is taken to King K. Rool's airship, to Diddy and Dixie's shock. The duo then chases him to the Flying Krock, the last world of the game. In the original Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2, this level can be used as a free trip out of the world without paying Funky's Flights II to get out. When revisited, it plays the "Krook's March" music, like the castle levels.

In the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 2, the level instead takes place on the castle roof, where the new boss Kerozene must be fought to earn the originally-free Kremkoin.
