Triple Trouble is the third boss level of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port of the same name, located at the end of Bright Savannah. It is where the Kongs fight Ba-Boom.


The level begins near a bridge, where a DK Barrel that switches between the three Kongs can be found. Upon entering the hut on the right, a cutscene plays. It begins with the Kongs noticing a Banana Bunch below a wooden pole. When they try to grab it, a baboon swipes the bunch away. He then splits into the three members of Ba-Boom, all of whom promptly tease the Kongs, angering them and beginning the battle.

The three monkeys move quickly, often relying on their speed to attack. The Ba-Boom brothers' first attack consists of them swinging from ropes, with some of them swinging wielding toy hammers. They can also perform a rolling attack, though it renders them dizzy and vulnerable to attacks at the end of it. To defeat Ba-Boom, the Kongs must jump on them; however, they can only jump on Ba-Boom’s rear ends, as their helmets protect against jump attacks, unless they use Cranky Kong's Cane Bounce. They can also be rolled into when they are on the ground.

After one of the Ba-Boom brothers takes three hits, the other two fully heal themselves, and they use a new attack: tossing Watermelon Fuse Bombs. They can be spiky or green; the green watermelons can be thrown back at Ba-Boom to damage them.

After another of the Ba-Boom brothers is defeated, the remaining brother fully heals himself, creating weaker specters of the other two. They repeat the same attacks as the previous two phases. In addition, the baboon and ghosts gain a new attack in which they swing in a chain, with one ghost throwing bombs and the other occasionally swinging a hammer.

When the third member of Ba-Boom takes three hits, they are defeated, and the Kongs can punch the Ba-Boom brothers to send them flying and complete the level.
