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.
Set in a cavern, this level is home to the rare foes, Kuff 'n' Klout, who will be major obstacles in the Kongs' path. Although webs from Squitter (who's playable for the first half of the level) or TNT Barrels can take them out, the twins will typically have to be avoided. The Kongs will have to study their attack patterns in order to figure out ways around them. Sometimes there will be bananas that will serve as guidelines, but not always. Other enemies here include Krimps, Buzzes, a single Booty Bird, and a Bazuka.
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 and soon find a flagpole. If they raise the flag on the pole, they will be taken to the next level.
