Mekanos is the only true industrial area of the tropical Northern Kremisphere in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. It seems similar to Donkey Kong Island's Kremkroc Industries, Inc., since the land once appeared to be a healthy forest like most of the island, though the Kremlings took over it and used the land for industrial business (to the dismay of Bramble bear). KAOS is fought for the first time here. The name is a pun on the tourist Greek island of Mykonos.
Backwards: Cotton Top Cove
The first level of Mekanos is factory-based. Small owl enemies known as Karbines lurking in the background will launch fireballs from a small cannon they are carrying. Dixie and Kiddy need to avoid these fireballs, and note the large fire pits below some rope climbing areas. The Karbines often follows the two around and continues to launch fireballs. Many people like to call the fireballs launched from Karbine's cannons cheeseballs because of the very similar appearance that the fireballs have to them.
Dixie and Kiddy are inside a giant pipe system in this level. The two must jump down onto the rail car connected to the upper pipe and ride the cart throughout the level. The level is based on successfully jumping over enemies, jumping over gaps, and completing the level in one piece.
This level is filled with a strange, green odor that alters the force of gravity throughout the level. The Kongs are slow on foot, but are able to jump high into the air. Squawks makes his first appearance in this level.
The boss level. The Kongs face KAOS inside this factory.
