Wrinkly's Save Cave is a grotto where Wrinkly Kong resides in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. It is also where Dixie and Kiddy Kong visit to save their game progress.

Overview[edit]

Wrinkly's Save Cave is the successor to the Kong Kollege from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Candy's Save Point from Donkey Kong Country. After the events of Donkey Kong Country 2 Wrinky retired from being a teacher and moved to the Northern Kremisphere where she resided in several caves. Unlike Kong Kollege, Wrinkly does not provide any level hints to the Kongs.

A Wrinkly's Save Cave appears in every world of Northern Kremisphere, including the main overworld itself, where it appears between Bazaar's General Store and Funky's Rentals. Wrinkly's Save Cave can be identified on the world map from a flashing white light.

Each time Dixie and Kiddy enter Wrinkly's Save Cave, she is doing a specific activity, which is either exercising, playing a Nintendo 64, sitting on her couch, or sleeping. Even if Wrinkly is asleep, the Kongs still opt to save their game themselves. Wrinkly also looks after the Banana Birds rescued by the Kongs; after rescuing every Banana Bird, they return to the Banana Bird Queen.

In the Game Boy Advance version, Wrinkly's Save Cave is reduced to a single Wrinkly's Retreat on the main Northern Kremisphere map, as saving can be done from the overworld Start Button menu. The other Save Cave locations were replaced with Cranky's Dojo. At Wrinkly's Retreat, Wrinkly simply waits for the Kongs to rescue the missing Banana Birds.

Wrinkly's Refuge[edit]

In Donkey Kong Land III, Wrinkly's Save Cave is changed to Wrinkly Refuge, although it is still where the Kongs must go in order to save their game. The interior layout is similar as in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Wrinkly no longer performs various activities, as she is always sitting on her couch. Due to the absence of Banana Birds, they

Trivia[edit]

  • The "Inside the Castle Walls" theme from Super Mario 64 can be heard if Wrinkly is playing her Nintendo 64.
  • While playing Super Mario 64, Wrinkly will comment on how nobody ever makes games about knitting. The line is "Why don't they make games about knitting?". There are two Mario-themed knitting games, both of which were only released in Japan, I Am a Teacher: Super Mario Sweater and Mario Family.
  • In Donkey Kong Land III the game's text misspells Kremlings in one of Wrinkly's phrases, "Keep an eye out for those Kremlins!".
