Troff and Scoff

On each of the first seven levels of Donkey Kong 64, there are various locations that a special gate with pictures of Troff and Scoff on it appear. A Kong can enter this gate at any point; within, they will find a room with a large door and a number on it in the background, with Troff and Scoff on platforms on either side of the door. This area also features a Tag Barrel, and a platform on the other end of the room with pads with each of the five Kongs' faces on them; stepping onto them will show how many bananas they have given.

The point of this area is to access each area's Boss Key; the boss's arena is on the other side of the door.  To open the door, the Kongs must provide the number of bananas specified on the door by standing on the banana pad in the area; doing so will feed as many bananas as possible within the Kongs' possession to Scoff. When the Kong runs out of bananas or the number on the door reaches 0 and vanishes, Scoff will belch and slam down on his platform, which will elevate Troff and his platform. If the number reaches 0, Troff will turn the key to the door, at which point the door will flash through the five Kongs' faces before stopping on one. The door will then open, at which point the torches in the room will go out and magic sparkles will appear and circle around; at this point, the chosen Kong may enter the boss's arena. If any Kong apart from the one whose face is on the door approaches it, the door will shut. Once the boss is defeated and their key is claimed, Troff and Scoff's portals will vanish from the level, never to come back.


On each of the seven levels, the number of needed bananas will increase.

Jungle Japes-60 Bananas

Angry Aztec-120 Bananas

Frantic Factory-200 Bananas

Gloomy Galleon-250 Bananas

Fungi Forest-300 Bananas

Crystal Caves-350 Bananas

Creepy Castle-400 Bananas


At the end of the game, after the Kongs defeat K. Rool, both Troff and Scoff join the Kongs' celebration at DK's house.
