Dumb Drum is the fifth boss found in Donkey Kong Country in the world Kremkroc Industries, Inc. Dumb Drum appears to be an Oil Drum with a skull and crossbones emblem. It has the ability to spew two enemy species. The enemies being Kritters, Slippas, Klaptraps, Klumps, and Armies. After defeating a pair, Dumb Drum attempts to crush Donkey and Diddy. The two must defeat all of the five enemy pairs to make Dumb Drum himself collapse and allow the primates to move on to Chimp Caverns.

In the Game Boy Advance version, the monkeys have to throw a TNT Barrel at Dumb Drum after defeating each pair of enemies to attack him. This was most likely done to make his explosion at the end of the battle make more sense.


  • Dumb Drum makes a different noise each time he crashes in the SNES version.
