Cheat mode
Do you believe in banana faries. Well you should because if you get all twenty, you can unlock the cheat menu and the mystery section of the main menu. Cheats include, infinite ammo,infinite bombs, infinite instruments, and infinite crystal coconuts. Than you can have some real fun.

Frantic Factory Boss: Mad Jack
Okay, you have to do this as Tiny Kong; also, make sure that you have her Pony Tail Whirl (A+A) from Cranky - you won't be able to do this without that attack.

To beat him:
- keep avoiding Mad Jack by using the Pony Tail Whirl (A+A) to jump from platform to platform
- once he stops, 2 Switches will appear - go Slam (A+Z) the one that's on the same colour as Mad Jack (white or blue), if it's the wrong one, you will get hurt; also, if Mad Jack's about to hit you, jump off the platforms and fall down, you only lose health if you get hit by him, not if you jump off
- hit Mad Jack 5 times with the Switches to defeat him (after 2 hits, the Switches won't light up, so they'll be harder to find; after 3 hits, he'll start shooting lasers at you, which are difficult to av..

How to unlock 2 Player

in "diddies mine" are in jungle japes, use his chimpy charge against the pile
of coals and you can go inside of it, but i don't think there is anything in
there.

Fire Kongs
Go to any Troff & Scoff (if you haven't beaten all of them yet) and jump into one of the torches and your Kong will be on fire. This is very weird and funny.

PS: You can do this with any Kong but you have to hit Z then hit A.

PS:2 you won't lose any health.

The last fariy
Ok I found this out when I was playn the game.You know where the final key is,in the room that you need both coins to get in?Well you don't need to have the coins to get the fairy all you do is stand at a place you can see it through the glass window and take a picture of it through the glass.It'll count it but, if you want to get the key you'll need the two coins to get it though.

A Few Handy Cheats and an Ending How-To
I found a few cheats while playing Donkey Kong and I thought you people might want them.

No Bananas, No Entry; WRONG:
When you get to Blocker, just use Lanky's arm stretch to touch the entrance of a new level and you're in!

Extra Time to Make Wasted Minds:
Before you even think about going into Hideout Helm, make sure you've collected all of Snide's Blueprints you could. The more you get the more time you'll have to destroy K.Rool's machine.

At the end of the game, during the boxing match, I have a how-to for you.
Donkey: Jump the shock waves on your way o the turnbuckles. Once there, jump in a barrel and go for the king's chin.
Diddy: Avoid the king's glove until a barrel appears. Jump in and shoot all the targets to drop a light on t..

8th Key WITHOUT Rareware or Nintendo Coin

Robotic Fish
To blow up the fish get inside and first get on the wooden platform. Get your gun out and aim to the left. Shot at the targets when the fan only covers obne target and shoot both, then start. Good luck It helped me.

How to get to the Robotic Fish the easy way not the hard way.
When you start the timer jump of the lighthouse and go into the water to the cave. Then go to where the fish is and there he is. That's why they give you 90 seconds to get there instead of using pad 5.

view control
When you are playing "Donkey Kong 64" hold the "R" button and walk the direction you need to go.
