Beach is the second world of Donkey Kong Country Returns and its 3DS re-release. The world's boss is the Scurvy Crew. As the name suggests, this world and its levels take place on a beach.

Levels[edit]

Appearance[edit]

The Beach's appearance is that of a beach, as one would expect. It is actually a bay, with several small islands on it, where the levels take place. Some of these islands are made of sand, and some of stone. Grass grows on some parts of a couple of the islands, and lots trees (mostly palm trees) grow on these sandy islands too. There are many smaller rocks sticking out of the water, making the waters look dangerous.

Countless shipwrecks litter the bay as well. It is possible that there is a dangerous reef below the water's surface that is causing some of these wrecks, but the most likely case is all of the pointy rocks everywhere. There is also a giant octopus swimming in the water breaking ships. There are ships floating on the bay also, that haven't been destroyed, and are still going. All of these ships, wrecked or not were pirate ships. This indicates that this bay is a hideout for pirates, or maybe they are there because there is treasure somewhere on the island. Whatever the reason, all of the pirates makes it very dangerous for people to be on the beach. At first sight of someone walking on the beach, the pirates will open fire, and whoever is on the beach needs to take cover from the cannon ball rain. Most of these pirates are crabs, which there are plenty of on the beach, but that does not mean that all of the pirates are crabs, there may be other unknown species visiting the island.

Occupants[edit]

  • Crabs
  • Cranky Kong
  • Tiki Goons

Climate[edit]

The climate varies depending on where Donkey Kong is. The west part of the Beach is calm, quiet, and peaceful. There is rarely rain, and the sun usually beats down, making it very warm. The skies are usually blue, with only a few clouds, and there are little sea breezes that blow through the islands.

The east part of the Beach is completely different. The weather is normally horrible; being windy, stormy, and cold. The rain falls hard on this side most of the time, and extreme tidal waves are not uncommon on the farthest island. This is probably the reason that this side of the island is almost uninhabited.

Terrain[edit]

The terrain is also different depending on the exact location of Donkey Kong. The west side of the Beach is mostly sandy, like a normal beach, and patches of some islands are grassy. The countless wrecks on the beach and in the water both help Donkey Kong and slow him down. Donkey Kong must pass over large expanses of water by using pieces of wrecked ships that he can jump on.

The warm water is perfect for species of all kinds, and wildlife is everywhere. Whales are seen sometimes, and they even let people ride on them. Crabs are extremely common, for the terrain is perfect for them, and palm trees are scattered across the islands.

The east side is very different when it comes to terrain as well. The terrain here is affected by the weather, which is not good. Instead of sand islands, the islands are mostly rock, and they are very weathered. The rocks are jagged and dangerous, and the ship wrecks are generally in much smaller pieces, making it harder to jump across them.

Other info[edit]

  • There is a very aggressive giant octopus swimming in the western waters, making it a very dangerous place. This giant octopus is big enough to destroy big pirate ships very quickly, but it will go after small prey, such as Donkey Kong.
  • There is a gargantuan statue of the giant octopus that was built in the waters which it swims. It is unknown who built this huge statue, but it could have been done by pirates decades or centuries ago. This is probably a warning to all passing ships, so people would know when they've reached its territory. It also could have been built by the same people who built the temple, and it may have served as a form of worship and idolatry.
  • It is also unknown what causes the extreme waves that hit one of the islands. There is no evidence of anything that could cause tidal waves to hit only one of the islands and not the whole bay, but that's what happens.
