DKC2 Percentage Glitch

So I was casually playing DKC2 on the PAL (Australian) Wii U VC when this happened:

DK coins (a.k.a. Hero coins) don't actually count towards the percentage total, they're only required for the completely optional "Cranky's Video Game Heroes" ranking.

Percentage breakdown:

1% for each of the 39 levels. (39%)
1% for getting all the bonuses in each level. (78%)
2% for each of the 5 regular bosses. (88%)
5% for each of the 2 K.Rool fights. (98%)
1% for visiting each Kong family member. (102%)

I collected all 40 coins and all I got was this lousy award screen! :rant:

Thanks for explaining. I've 102%ed this game many times before, but I wasn't sure what was happening.
Seems a bit silly, doesn't it?

Don't worry, many people overlooked this when playing. For some reason old games got the gameplay right but not the math :headache:
