Wizpig Strikes Back is the sixth and final boss course and the twenty-sixth and final overall standard course in both Diddy Kong Racing and Diddy Kong Racing DS. It is located on Future Fun Land behind the T.T. Door and is unlocked after all the Golden Balloons are collected from each world and all four pieces of the T.T. amulet are obtained. The official Diddy Kong Racing website suggested racing as Diddy on this track.
The course begins in an area with floating meteors and giant stone spikes, with some spaceships up above shooting laser beams down. This section leads to an area above water with electric barriers on the right hand side, and a cliff face which looks like Wizpig's head. After this is a cave system with more electrical barriers and stone spikes, that leads to a room with an electrified throne in the middle and where there are more spaceships that fire lasers at the player. After this is a tunnel that leads back to the starting line.
Unlike the first Wizpig race, item balloons do appear on this track, which makes the race slightly easier for the player. Most are red or blue, but there is a single yellow balloon just before the throne room, which is critical for the player to avoid being hit by the stray lasers covering the room.
The Nintendo DS remake is missing some stone spikes, and the spaceships at the end of the tunnel no longer shoot. Hence, the ships only shoot in one part of the course, but now they home in until they pass the player, making it hard to continue. Also, touching the electrical wires at Wizpig's throne now hurts the player.
