Turret Tusk is the first Tusk and ruler of the Apple Kingdom in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. Its appearance is that of a massive mechanical elephant whose body is a brown camouflage, and has bright red eyes.

Donkey Kong fights Turret Tusk at a small partially forested canyon. Turret Tusk attacks him by firing cannonballs out of its trunk and trying to suck him into it. To defeat it, Donkey Kong must grab a Blood Pine from the ground and throw it at Turret Tusk's trunk, causing it to suck it in. The Blood Pine explodes inside Turret Tusk's body, causing it to fall over and spit out more Blood Pines, while briefly exposing its heart. Donkey Kong must continue throwing Blood Pines at Turret Tusk's heart, where they stick into until exploding. Afterward, Turret Tusk gets back on its feet, and the cycle repeats. Midway through the battle, Turret Tusk begins releasing sparks from the damage, which can shock Donkey Kong if he comes in contact with it. If Donkey Kong throws enough Blood Pines at Turret Tusk's heart, he defeats Turret Tusk, resulting in it breaking down and falling apart.

It received a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Possibly due to a mistake by the game's developers, the trophy shows one of Double Tusks instead. However, since Turret Tusk and the Tusks as a whole have the same basic Japanese name, it may have been intended to represent Tusks in general and been lost in translation.

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.
