First appearance

DK: Jungle Climber

The Torch is an item used by the Kongs in DK: Jungle Climber where it is used to melt ice. Because of what it does, it is only used in Chill 'n' Char Island. The appearance of the Torch is rather small, and it is also striped yellow and black. Like some items in the game, it can only be used with Diddy Kong. In the cheats section which is in the Extras section on the if Donkey Kong collects enough DK Coins he'll unlock a cheat that will improve the Torch by making the fire go out a longer distance.
