Swanky's Sideshow is a large circus themed area ran by Swanky in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! found in every area in the Northern Kremisphere, except Krematoa or Pacifica which only appears in the GBA version. In the GBA remake, it is replaced by Swanky's Dash. This place has three modes total; Endurance, Head to Head, and Race to 25. Dixie or Kiddy's opponent is Cranky on whom they compete in all three matches. This game with each mode costs two Bear Coins to play.



This is one of the three modes in this area. Dixie/Kiddy must compete Cranky in a ball throwing competition until one misses a target. Whoever misses a target loses, having the other one win.

Head to Head

On the top of the screen, there is a meter with five segments. Dixie or Kiddy's face is shown at the top of the screen while Cranky's is at the bottom. Each time when a target is hit, it rises or lowers. The first person to break their meter wins.

Race to 25

This mode, as it may state, has Dixie/Kiddy and Cranky competing in a fight to break twenty five targets. Whoever breaks twenty five first wins.


  • This mini-game is similar to the boss battle with Bleak.
  • The winning music in this mini-game was later reused in Donkey Kong Land III when Dixie and Kiddy win a level.
