* While DiddyKongRacing seems to have a lighthearted feel, it (like any other great game by Rare and Nintendo) still wasn't free of things that frightened many young gaming children back in the day: one example is when you collect all the pieces of the Wizpig Amulet the next time you go into the main hub (after leaving one of the mini hubs on the last of the four worlds you earned it on or if you quit the game and get back on after having earned the last part of it) the statue of him lets out an EvilLaugh and then fades away. It can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZH82T3Ht4M here]]. The DS version of this game is more like a NightmareRetardant to most people, since in the DS version, Wizpig simply yawns and the camera has a lack of zooming in for menacing effect.

** The game let's you skip it, but you'll have to play it eventually.

* Krow, the first boss of ''[=DKC2=]'', is sacrificing his own young in the fight, as he uses his eggs to attack you; [[TennisBoss the same ammo must be used against him.]] The later boss fight with Kreepy Krow implies the ghost birds are the souls of the ones died as eggs in the first fight.

** DKC3 takes this even further at times. Although it's frequently even more upbeat and happy than the original, the more industrial, atmospheric areas and soundtracks are ''dark''. The underwater music, factory music and final boss music in particular wouldn't be out of place in a steampunk-themed horror game.

* "Frantic Fields," which brings back the frustration and fear of "Lightning Lookout" (from DKC3) and has Donkey Kong get caught in a tornado.

*** Not to mention their visuals are taken to more emphasized levels in the second ''Country'' game, where they are arguably more realistic looking in both sprite and artwork....have fun with nightmares of them; arguably they are less intimidating in later 3D games however since they're more cartoonish and less fuzzy.
