Turret Tusk is the first Elephant Cannon and ruler of the Apple Kingdom in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. His appearance is that of a massive mechanical elephant, who has a colored brown camouflage throughout his body and bright red eyes.

During the boss battle, Turret Tusk attacks Donkey Kong by firing cannonballs out of its trunk. To defeat him, Donkey Kong has to grab a Blood Pine from the ground and throw it at Turret Tusk's trunk, causing him to suck it in. Inside him, the Blood Pine will explode, causing him to fall over, exposing his heart and causing him to spit out more Blood Pine. Donkey Kong must then throw these Blood Pines at Turret Tusk's heart, where they will stick to it until they explode. Doing this several times will defeat Turret Tusk and cause him to breakdown and fall apart.

He received a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where, due to a mistake by the game's developers, the trophy for him actually shows the plain Double Tusk.

The trick is to throw pineapple-shaped bombs into its nose when it's inhaling to blow it up from the inside. For all its austerity, the Turret Tusk is actually quite stupid.
