You can vote twice: one vote is for which boss looks the coolest, and one is for which boss is the most fun.

The bosses were kinda bad in this game, in my opinion. But overall this was a pretty easy game. :)

Yeah, I thought the bosses were too repetitive, easy, and well, kinda boring. Except Queen. B, and K. Rool. They were epic.

Although Dumb Drum is pretty cool, Queen B. still is cooler, in gameplay and looks.

I personally hate dumb drum. I mean cmon, he spits 2 enemy's at ya a few times and he's done. Enemy's you've spend every level hopping on.

I voted him for his looks and design. As a boss, he's way too easy.

Me and my brothers had a lot of fun when we first played against Dumb Drum :) .

But the music against K.K. is the greatest.

I think King K. Rool will win. He's a super cool reptilian villian with a big yellow belly and an eye tic.
I love crocodiles.... and you too K. Rool. ^^

Master Necky Sr. was one of my favorite bosses because I LOVE birds and well Necky is a bird so I like him. Alost I like King K.Rool a lot because he was that mix of easy and hard for me and the music for his level was AMAZING.

What about the first Master Necky? He's also a bird, that spits nuts, and you need to jump on his head to defeat him. Do you just like Necky Sr. because he's the harder one? Or do you just like purple?

K Rool is the best. K Rool and Queen B are cool...the other bosses aren't really cool...DKC2 bosses are cooler...

Like Goe said, the DKC bosses aren't cool loike DKC'2's. But, if I had to pick, I would have to go with the King. 8-)

That's a tough choice, but I'm going to have to go with King K. Rool, with Dumb Drum in a close second.

I think King K. Rool is the best, and Dumb Drum comes after him. Every other boss sucks because they are too easy.

I think Dumb Drum is one of the easiest. Queen B. is the second hardest, but still alot easier than K. Rool.

I ended the poll.

I think it's safe to assume that no one voted for Dumb Drum for being the funnest boss, so the winners are...

Dumb Drum as the coolest looking boss, and
K.Rool as most fun boss.

K Rool was the most fun in my opinion. The rest all seemed a bit boring. :(

I liked Boss Dumb Drum because he really tested all you learned from previous levels, he was also my brother's favorite boss.
Next I like Queen B., I especially like her in the GBA port, more powerful and challenging.

For looks I voted for Dumb Drum, for gameplay I voted for King K.Rool.
K.Rool is a fun boss, plus the fake ending credits when you think you've beating him are made of win.

Queen B, Dumb Drum and Master Necky Sr. are my favorites. =)

That is such a hard question. The most difficult boss, I would say is Master Necky Snr. But as far as everything other than difficulty, I'll have to say King K. Rool. He's my all-time favorite boss of any and all games. I like how he's fat but can jump like a motherflipper :) Also, capes make everything better!

Ah, Very Gnawty, the memories. GUH-HUH-HUH-HUH-HUH! He basically went from "impossible" to "losing one life to him is pathetic", but, he's still funny to this day :lol: . Every DKC fan will never forget him... (Will this be the same with Mugly in DKCR? O_o)

After VG I would choose King K. Rool. Such an epic fight. The unique music and change of setting was the perfect set-up for the final boss. And those cannonballs... not to mention the imfamous fake ending!

Though if I had to choose a third though, Queen B.'s it.

Dumb Drum was pretty cool to fight, since he was the only boss fight in the game in which you had to fight enemies.

Dumb Drum looked the best, but he was waaay too easy for a boss of a world so far in the game. The Gnawties and Neckies, I found boring, they were really too generic, and the tougher versions of them were also boring.

My top 3 bosses are, therefore:
3. Queen B.
2. Dumb Drum
1. K. Rool

K. Rool was the most challenging of them all.

K. Rool is my favourite, second would be Dumb Drum.

You gotta love that pirate-y music followed by epic 16-bit rock. I'm ashamed that Gangplank Galleon of all songs, wasn't included in DKCR :[

I'll go with Queen B. She is much easier than that fustrating King Zing in DKC2.

K. Rool was hard, but awesome. The music there is awesome, and I loved the credits after you beat him as a reward for all your hard work through levels and bosses.

Dumb Drum for the looks. EPIC!!!! Way to easy, though.
K. Rool is the best for Gameplay. I was reading the credits and thought "These are fake. Maybe its an- OH MY GOSH!!!". Yes... :cry:

I like King K., but I want to be different so I will have to go with Queen B. A HUGE ZINGER! Pretty cool to fight, I only fought her on the GBA version and its amazing.
