* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Hard mode is characterized by a ''complete absence of these''. There's no checkpoints, only one hit point and there's no Diddy Kong to give you extra hit points or a jet pack. Have fun.

* ArtEvolution: The original ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' trilogy featured a realistic art style ''and'' cartoony characters with realistic fur and textures. This game goes for more of a "painted cartoon" look and adds cartoony effects and animations to top it off. The fact that the series changed hands (formerly {{Rare}}, currently [[RetroStudios Retro]]) has something to do with it.

Along with his best friend and [[{{Pun}} second banana]] Diddy Kong, the big guy sets out to get them back.

** "Peaceful Pier" has an area during the rocket barrel sequence where a crosshair follows you, then stops so the crabs on the ship can fire an anchor at you; this is likely a reference to the "Krack-Shot Kroc" level in ''[=DKC3=]''.

** The boss music tends to get more intense the further in the battle you get.

* XylophonesForWalkingBones: [[TempleOfDoom The Cliffs world]], which makes use of a xylophone in its music, is filled with dinosaur bones, big and small, some still alive. The Tiki found there plays xylophone music and resembles the skeleton of a trilobite.
