Ghastly King was ruler of The Fruit Kingdoms before he was overthrown by Donkey Kong, and the final boss of Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. He is a Cactus King-lookalike. Ghastly King is fought the same way as Cactus King.
Before reaching him, Donkey Kong must go through the same exact level he went through to fight Cactus King. However, this time it is much harder. Ghastly King is also harder, having a few more attacks.
It looks as if he put a spell on the Kong kings because after defeating him, Dread Kong, Ninja Kong, Karate Kong and Sumo Kong celebrate Ghastly King's defeat and don't attack Donkey Kong, and cheer him on instead.
- A portion of the music for this battle is a remix of the tune that plays when Donkey Kong climbs to the top of the construction site with Pauline in the original Donkey Kong.
