Wild Sting Fling[1] is the boss level of Gangplank Galleon Ahoy!, the first world of the game Donkey Kong Land. The Kongs must defeat the titular stingray, Wild Sting, to progress to Kremlantis.

Layout[edit]

Although Wild Sting is a stingray, the fight takes place in a single-screen area, which is mostly flat barring two small ledges slightly elevated on the far left and right of the screen. While no Buddy Barrel is broken on-screen, both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are available to the player from the start of the fight, regardless of their previous status.

In the battle, Wild Sting flies in from a top corner of the screen and swoops down in smooth arcs. The Kong can attack Wild Sting by jumping on it, causing Wild Sting to bounce off-screen and reemerge from a top corner again. Wild Sting is unaffected by a barrel roll or cartwheel.

After each hit, it moves around faster horizontally, meaning it takes a wider and shallower arc every time, often turning off-screen.

Once seven hits have been landed, Wild Sting is defeated, and three Banana Bunches fall from the sky for the Kongs to optionally catch.
