Upon entering the area, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are ambushed by Gong. Gong breaks down the floor, along with a large unhatched egg which falls into a golden pot. Gong then uses his power to hypnotize and hatch it, revealing Stu,strangely mature.Stu then screeches and the battle starts.
Stu starts by tossing some bombs at the apes. After throwing three, he will drop a very large bomb which lowers the blocks placed on the battlefield. Next, quickly hitting him with another bomb will cause him to then do a swooping attack, which must be ducked under. Enraged, he will drop many bombs all over the field and go right to a swooping attack, leaving him open to have a bomb thrown at it. Stu does another two swooping attacks until it drops another large bomb, destroying the other bricks positioned on the left and right sides of the field. And finally, it drops at tiki that explodes on contact and another bomb, which must be thrown to defeat it. Eventually, after enough hits, Stu will lose his armor and feathers and faint from shame, freeing him from Gong's control and allowing you to send Gong flying.
- Stu is a pun on "stew", as he uses a cauldron as armor.
- Stu is the only boss in Donkey Kong Country Returns that cannot be jumped on.
