Gangplank Galleon

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gangplankgalleon_5276.png

A pirate-themed area seen in video games, especially in a Platform Game. Has many barrels, usually takes place near the water and a wooden ship, and features tons of pirate enemies in stock costumes. Expect to climb/swing on rope, navigate water, and dodge cannonfire. Was once fairly rare, but skyrocketed in popularity after Pirates of the Caribbean was released (the attraction it was based on can be considered a Real Life version of this). If the character is capable of swimming, expect a diving for treasure sequence.

In RPGs, adventuring here may be related to the Port Town quest, to get the boat.

Named for the Final Boss stage of Donkey Kong Country.

Frequently overlaps with Palmtree Panic and Under the Sea. For the Ninja-based counterpart, see Wutai.
