Level After Angry Aztec
Jungle Japes is the first stage of Super Donkey Kong 64, and is located through a tunnel, to the right of the tunnel leading to Donkey Kong’s house. It is a jungle level, filled with palm trees, mountains and tunnels and contains the first appearance of Cranky's Lab. There are also buildings for Snide's HQ and Funky's Store, although they cannot be entered. This level features the only appearance of the Mini Mushroom, which shrinks Mario and allows him to fit into small gaps.

Levels Edit

Jungle Japes Star 1

Ground pound the huts around Cranky's Lab to reveal the secrets

Star 1 Edit

Head through the tunnel, and straight past the cannon. Go across the river, and into the tunnel. Go past the two vines with the red coin and turn right at the fork. Travel straight ahead past the red coin star spawn point to get to a clearing with Cranky’s Lab in the middle. Ground pound the 5 huts around the lab to reveal the 5 secrets and the star will appear.
Jungle Japes Star 2

The first, and only star that uses the Mini Cap

Star 2 Edit

Head through the tunnel and turn left at the cannon. Go into the tunnel at the end of the grass, and follow it up to a clearing with a Mini Mushroom box in the middle. Get the mushroom and go into the log to the right of the tunnel to find the hidden star.

Star 3 Edit

Jungle Japes Star 3

Star 3 is at the very top of the mountain

This star is at the very top of the mountain in the main area. There are two ways to get it, either make a fairly precise cannon shot directly to the pillar, or get to the top of the mountain at the base of the pillar, and then triple jump off the box behind it and wall-kick-dive to get to the top.

Star 4 Edit

Jungle Japes Star 4

MIPS cage on the left, and the alcove with the Mario switch below

This star is held by MIPS in the cage at the top of the mountain. To open the cage, ground pound the tile with the Mario face in the alcove in the side of the mountain under MIPS. There are vine poles leading to the alcove along the side of the mountain, but the easiest way to get to it is to just use the cannon to shoot there directly.

Star 5 Edit

To get this star, Mario must collect all 8 red coins scattered through the jungle. The locations are as follows:

Jungle Japes Star 5

The second red coin. That ground is safe to walk on, though the vines might suggest otherwise.

  1. In the tunnel leading to Cranky’s Lab, next to a Kuromame
  2. Just past the first red coin, between two vine poles
  3. Turn left at the red coin star spawn, and it’s on top on the ramp on the left
  4. Across the room from red coin 3
  5. Turn right at the red coin spawn, straight ahead at the fork
  6. Next to red coin 5
  7. Take the other path at the fork near the 5th/6th red coin room  and it’s at the bottom of the room
  8. Next to red coin 7

After obtaining all 8 red coins, the star appears at the intersection of the tunnels.

Star 6 Edit

Jungle Japes Star 6
