Creepy Castle is the seventh world in Donkey Kong 64. The world has a dark atmosphere to it and floats high up in the sky. It prominently features a tall castle.

The world's boss is King Kut Out, a cardboard cut out of King K. Rool; Lanky fights it, and the other Kongs act as extra support in case Lanky (or they) accidentally fires himself out of the arena.

This world introduces red Kong Switches, which can only be activated by the Super Duper Simian Slam.

Summary[edit]

Before the Kongs can access this world, they must unlock the sixth and seventh padlocks of K. Lumsy's cage using two separate Boss Keys. K. Lumsy causes a tremor from his excitement, causing a Barrel Cannon to spawn in DK Isles. The Kongs must use this cannon to access Creepy Castle, located with the peak of Crocodile Rock.

It is unknown how Creepy Castle floats in the air and who had constructed its castle. It is divided into many different areas, both within the castle walls and outside of them. A continuous thunderstorm takes place outside. The castle grounds has a large tree and a mysterious greenhouse, both of which hide Golden Bananas. The castle itself houses a number of rooms, including a library, a ballroom, and a museum which houses different works of art (including one of Kaptain K. Rool). Moaning and other sounds can be heard in the castle.

The lower levels of the castle are home to a series of labyrinth-like catacombs, guarded by bats and Kremlings. A few crypts are featured here: one of them is shaped like a skull, which only DK, Diddy and Chunky can enter it, and the other can only be accessed by Lanky and Tiny can enter. One of the chambers of the latter has has green slime, which results in instant death when touched. Moving black hands emerge from the slime, which Tiny can use to get a Golden Banana. The skull-shaped crypt also has a Mine Cart challenge, haunted by a Resident Demon.

Enemies[edit]

Most of the area's enemies are based on the undead (one is an undead enemy), in conjunction with Creepy Castle's haunted setting.
