Torch Tusk is the third Elephant Cannon and ruler of the Peach Kingdom in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.

Torch Tusk appears as a mechanical elephant, and is colored much like Grave Tusk, being brown with darker colored tusk and red eyes.

Torch Tusk is much harder than the other two Elephant Cannons faced earlier in the game, as the cannonballs he shoots after taking enough damage are on fire, and will set the platform they land on completely ablaze. Like Grave Tusk, he also has a laser attack, but this one is harder to dodge. A pit of lava separates him from Donkey Kong.

Like the other Elephant Cannons, he will suck in Blood Pines, and they will explode inside of him. However, because of his laser, Donkey Kong will get less of a chance to throw the Blood Pine into his trunk. He will mainly have to settle for simply hitting his body, which does far less damage. The battle against Torch Tusk seems to take place in a volcano.
