Tyrant Twin Tussle
Tyrant Twin Tussle is the thirty-eighth level in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is also the third area of the lost world, Krematoa. In the game's Game Boy Advance remake, the level is instead the forty-fourth level, due to the addition of Pacifica.
Tyrant Twin Tussle takes place in a cavern, and it prominently features the rare enemy, Kuff 'n' Klouts, which are twins who always appear together as a pair. They either run across the cavern floors or alternate in jumping from one side to the other. Dixie and Kiddy can defeat Kuff 'n' Klouts with a TNT Barrel, although in most instances, the Kongs must avoid these enemies. They can avoid the jumping Kuff 'n' Klouts by walking between them as they jump, or the running ones by jumping over them. A few Krimps and Buzzes appear in the level, and a Booty Bird and a Bazuka each appear in a hidden area.
During the first half, the Kongs can use a team up throw to enter an Animal Barrel and transform into Squitter the Spider. The Animal Friend is required to reach a Bonus Level and a Koin before the Star Barrel, and it can defeat Kuff 'n' Klouts with its web projectiles. By taking damage, Squitter makes a different sound than in other levels. Its No Animal Sign is just before the Star Barrel.
The levels begins with the Kongs passing a small alcove to meet the first Kuff 'n' Klout. Once they dodge these enemies fully, finding their attacks patterns, the monkeys will hit a DK Barrel to rescue a lost monkey and jump over more Kuff 'n' Klouts. With the help of some bananas, they should get away from the enemies and move over to another set a Kuff 'n' Klouts, running towards the monkeys. The heroes should dodge them both and grab the letter K. Farther on, the group will walk along the straight path and find more Kuff 'n' Klouts. Again, with some bananas laid out to mark where the enemies will not land can help the Kongs avoid the foes and be able to travel to the next set of charging Kuff 'n' Klouts. In a gap in this area, they will find the letter O. After they pass the Kuff 'n' Klouts in their way, they will walk across a rather straight path and soon find the Star Barrel.
About halfway into the level, the heroes will have to dodge another Kuff 'n' Klout, whom will charge at them as they finish hopping through the long cavern. Shortly after passing these foes, the monkeys will find more Kuff 'n' Klouts to dodge and then the letter N in a small gap found in the ceiling. Again, they will meet more Kuff 'n' Klouts, hopping along the rigid ground. While avoiding a few red Buzzes in their way, the apes should avoid all these foes and blast through a barrel to reach a lower area. In this area, they will pass more Kuff 'n' Klouts and soon find the letter G. Traveling a little more into the level, Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong will pass another Kuff 'n' Klout. The Level Flag is shortly after, and by pulling it, the Kongs complete the level and acquire the third cog for Boomer's machine.
