Game Donkey Kong Country Returns

Temple Topple is the sixth level of the Ruins area in Donkey Kong Country Returns. By beating this level the level boss, Stu will be available.


Rambi is found.

Temple Topple starts out inside temple ruins, with Tiki Tanks, Hopgoons, and plenty of spikes. Shortly after, Donkey Kong and Diddy will find the Animal Crate for Rambi the Rhinoceros. When it is Ground Pounded open, Rambi will be rideable. He can use his horn and charging attacks to defeat enemies easily, and even break floor spikes, rendering them useless. Rambi does have a weakness of fire, however. A few Tiki Torches in the level will prove annoying because of it. Towards the end of the level, stone walkways will start to collapse and the heroes will have to rush to avoid falling down.


A Tiki Tank is defeated by Rambi.


DK jumps for the "O".

    • G: Found while going through a section with collapsing stone walkways.
  • Puzzle Pieces:
    • 1: Found when DK and Diddy go to the barrel cannons shortcut found by going to the upper platforms left of the first DK Barrel.
