Game Donkey Kong Country

Temple Tempest is a level in the game Donkey Kong Country. It is the fourth level of Vine Valley in the Super Nintendo and Game Boy Color iterations of the game, but in the Game Boy Advance version it is the sixth.


Since Diddy Kong did not pass this Millstone Gnawty, it will not move.

This level is the second and final temple-themed level of Donkey Kong Country. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong must get across temple ruins while avoiding the minions of King K. Rool. Millstone Gnawty are a prominent enemy in this stage, similarly to the other temple level, Millstone Mayhem. In this level, the Millstone Gnawty will be idle in one spot, and upon passing them, they will move forward until a certain point. Thus, DK and Diddy must be quick and outrun the Millstone Gnawty when encountered. Aside from them, regular Gnawty and Kritter enemies are recurring in the stage. Gnawty enemies usually appear in the areas with Millestone Gnawty, and they can be rolled into to gain momentum. The Kritters found are the Kritters that jump high, so the Kongs must be careful to not be injured from above.

By taking the first DK Barrel found and throwing it into a wall east of where its found, a Bonus Level will be found, containing an Animal Crate for Expresso the Ostrich. Upon leaving the bonus stage with Expresso, he can be used for the remainder of the level.

A Candy's Save Point / Candy's Challenge is unlocked upon finishing this stage, as well as the next level in Vine Valley. In the SNES and GBC versions, the next level is Orang-utan Gang. In the GBA version, it is the area boss, Queen B.


Animal Buddies


The location of the Camera.
  • Animal Token for Rambi: located in the upper left corner of the entrance. On the small platform, the Kong must jump on a Gnawty to gain a boost up.
  • Bananas: 57
  • Camera (GBA): A Millstone Gnawty is directly on top of a Camera found while progressing in the stage normally; Luring the Millstone Gnawty out and getting back to its original spot will allow DK/Diddy to grab the camera. It will unlock a picture in the Scrapbook.
  • Red Extra Life Balloon: In the first bonus level, at the end. Another is gained by simply jumping/cartwheeling eight Neckys straight in a row in the bonus room.
  • DK Barrels: 2
  • K-O-N-G Letters:
    • K: On the first rope, must climb low to get it.
    • O: In between two ropes, a Millstone Gnawty will be chasing nearby.
    • N: After the ropes with a banana-arrow pointing down, use the tire to get to the top of the platform and jump down on the weak spot in the ground.
    • G: At the very end, climb on the rope and once it's set near the "EXIT" sign, climb it down.
  • Star Barrel: After finding the "O", and climbing the upwards rope, it's to the right.

Bonus Levels

The "Find the Exit!" bonus stage.
  • Find the Exit: The Kongs should take the first DK Barrel they find and ram it into the closest wall available. Inside, they must stomp on a bunch of Neckies. Expresso is at the end. There are enough Neckies for the player to get one extra life. In the SNES and GBC versions, they can get one life for every Necky they stomp on after the seventh, and there's a bug that will let them get another life for breaking open Expresso's crate.
  • Bash the Baddies: After the Star Barrel, there's a banana arrow pointing downward over a pit with three ropes. Inside, DK/Diddy must stomp on a Klaptrap ten times. Each time they jump on it, it gains speed. Upon defeating it, an Animal Token for Rambi is awarded.
