Donkey Kong's crown
Earn all 60 crests (three from each kingdom). Donkey Kong will now wear the crown seen during the Crest Check.
Defeating Dread Kong
He is the easiest of the Kongs. Just clap (dodge) and
beat like crazy.
Defeating Karate Kong
This Kong is fairly difficult. When you attack, he
will try to dodge and will be successful about 85% of the time.
Only attack after you dodge. He will attack more than once, even
at different speeds. You must look carefully. When you get him
to about half health, he will stand. His attacks will be faster,
but when he attacks and you dodge and it is in slow motion, attack
as fast as you can. Repeat this until he has been defeated.
Defeating Ninja Kong
Try to dodge and attack as usual. When he has half
health, he goes crazy. He will attack a lot faster and sometimes
dodge to fake you out. Try to keep attacking and about 10% of
the time you will hit him to a point to where he is knocked out.
Then, get him. Repeat this until he has been defeated.
Defeating Sumo Kong
When fighting Sumo Kong, you cannot dodge. If you do,
he will attack and hurt you. Go crazy on the bongos by beating
on the drums (not clapping). If you can do this fast enough, you
will eventually knock him on his back. Keep doing this until he
Defeating the Cactus King
He can be a very easy Boss. When he is on his pig that
breathes fire, clap until you have the flames to the pig then
beat on the drums. For the Cactus King, just jump ,clap, dodge,
and beat on the drums. Repeat this until he has been defeated.
Also, if you clap and enter battle at different sides and angles,
you can hurt him in many different ways.
Defeating the Kong Bosses
When you face the Kong Bosses, you can hit them five
of the back by just trying to hit them instead of knocking them
out. However, the other way may be better.
Monkey Fest: Bigger combo
Instead of just clapping and going in the bush immediately,
do a backflip into the wall. Jump off the wall, then clap the
bush to get your combo up to five. When you go through the wire,
do not get the four bananas yet, Instead, hit both drums at once
to do a Ground Pound to get the combo at six, then jump off the
wire to get it to seven. Then, clap and get the four bananas.
Note: These are the first four bananas of the stage. When you
go through the stage slightly more, there is a group of banana
bunches in bubbles. Do not clap yet. Instead, go through the level
more to increase your combo and do not forget to get the flowers.
After awhile, you will fly through the tree trunk and pass through
the center of the group of bananas. Once here, clap. It is possible
to get your combo up to nine, get 1100 off that stage only. Note:
Do not get bananas regularly; always do a clap grab in this stage,
never just "fall" into them.
Clap and combos
If you do combos and clap for your bananas you will
get more points.
Determining what crest you receive
Whatever your health color is when you are fighting
a Boss determines what crest you will get. For example, if your
life bar is gold, you will receive up to a gold crest. The same
goes for all the other crests.
