The Temple[1] is a part of the Angry Aztec level in Donkey Kong 64. It is a large temple with five doors, each of which requiring a different Kong to enter the temple and leading to a Golden Banana. In order to enter their section of the temple, however, the Kongs need to fire their specific weapon, which can be obtained from Funky Kong at his armory, at a switch above the door in order to open it, i.e. Coconut = Donkey, etc. However, once the Golden Banana has been obtained, Kroc takes aim at the player and menacingly says, "Get out!" At this point a timer appears and the player must race back to entrance before the timer runs out. If the timer runs out, Kroc fires his weapon and cause the player to lose a slice of their Watermelon, for each shot. To enter the temple, a Kong must fire their weapon at one of the Target Switches on the outside of the temple, which are activated by using the Rocket Barrel power to hit a switch on top of the temple, and then feeding peanuts to a nearby spinning tower.
