In both Super Smash Brothers Melee and Super Smash Brothers Brawl, Jungle Japes is set on a river that has three ledges made from wood, which the fighters fight on. It has one large platform in the middle, with a small one above it. There is two smaller platforms on opposite sides of the large one. The water below is fast and can be dangerous to jump into as it will rush the fighter quickly to the left. Klaptraps occasionally jump out of the water and will KO a fighter if it hits. The music in the main level music in Donkey Kong Country.
